Driving near to the limit of what is possible requires some interesting skills. Coaching people to acquire these skills efficiently and easily requires wide-ranging experience combined with powerful coaching techniques.

For most people who encounter a limit handling event, it is regarded as an emergency. For truly high-performance drivers these are often self-inflicted events engaged in regularly on track, at proving grounds and more rarely on the road. They are not regarded as emergencies because they are simply part of the high-performance driver's toolkit. Most "so called" advanced road drivers spend their time making sure that they never get to the limit of their own or their vehicle's performance envelope, they never practice these skills and are typically found wanting when the need arises.
