Here is a selection of comments from team managers and drivers that Daniel has worked with as a coach.
Mick Gomme – Commercial manager at SWR, previously at Force India F1:
“Having a driver coach of the calibre of Daniel McKenzie has been absolutely invaluable to SWR. With quite inexperienced drivers hoping to carve out careers as professional racing drivers, Daniel has been able to use his vast experience to quickly improve their driving techniques – along with analysing data together to work out where improvements can be made. His circuit knowledge and familiarity has definitely helped our aspiring drivers achieve success in their first seasons of car racing.”
“Dan is a very good driver coach and has helped me massively since we first worked together. His vast amount of experience, in many different cars, has given me a lot of confidence in the advice he has provided to me. Dan is also very structured at analysing data and onboard footage. He has taught me many ways to improve my driving, such as throttle application, steering application, braking technique, the minimum speed through corners, warming my tyres and more.”
“Dan as a driver coach is very intelligent and a perfectionist. This makes it easier for us drivers to reach the limits when out on track. His experience in different kinds of race cars is huge, and you can feel it does have an influence when coaching drivers. I enjoy working with Dan and have learned vast amounts in the short time I have done so.”
