Bas’s mission is to mentor young drivers to prepare them for the top levels of the motorsport ladder. The core of this program is the ability to take expertise gained and success experienced throughout his career and translate it back into the coaching experience to fine-tune each drivers particular skill set.
From corner entry to throttle and brake modulation, overtaking to how to get the best jump off the start of a race and avoid accidents, Bas is able to pass down many secrets gathered from a career which started in 1996 at the age of 7.
There are few who can offer this type of detailed coaching and even fewer that have the ability to verbalize their expectations to their protégés. This level of translation and detail is just one example of what sets Bas apart from other coaches.
Lammers Racing Projects is an extremely professional project that has a different approach to it’s competition. From building confidence in the drivers, to racing lines and more, our primary focus is on driver development, taking driver coaching to a different level.
Data analysis services, which are included in the team program, but also offered as an individual service as well. For developing drivers, the ability to understand what is happening with their kart is vitally important in terms of how to set the kart up for maximum performance.
As every driver learns differently and progresses at various levels, each driver in the Lammers Racing Projects program has a tailored focus set by Bas to ensure they getting the maximum benefit from the program. A variety of mediums, including on-board video footage, data logger analysis and whiteboards with track map drawings, are used during debriefs to explain to the drivers and help the drivers explain out to Bas the strengths and weaknesses of the sessions.
Topics discussed during a driving debrief range from the proper racing lines to utilize on-track, to the proper places on the circuit to overtake. These debriefs help the drivers become better ‘racers’ by analysing their race performance and choices during a race. Sometimes it’s teaching where to be more patient, while others it may take charge and be aggressive. Each individual is unique and requires slightly different coaching. Coupled with the data gathered, there is no better way to review driver performance.
Younger drivers may not always be able to translate and understand how their driving techniques can impact their performance or whether a setup change actually made a difference in their performance. During the technical debrief Bas can explain in detail what is happening on the track by combining video footage with performance graphs to determine the gains made from a particular session. Whether it is understanding exactly what is happening from a driving point of view, or whether it’s from the technical side in terms of chassis handling/performance, Bas can diagnose and help fine-tune not only the driver, but the entire package.
Understanding how to accurately read data is one of the most important part of being a successful driver. With the knowledge and experience Bas has gathered from his professional career, this understanding can be easily achieved. From karting to single seaters, Bas offers the complete package if your aspirations are to become a professional driver.
