Coaching: Driver Testimonials

Tuition by Multiple British GT Race Winner and BRDC “Rising Star”

“I have been racing successfully on and off since 2003, and have never considered having any tuition before. When my father booked a session with Olly I went along with him and decided to go out for a few laps, and I am extremely glad I did. The advice Olly was able to give in even the first couple of laps resulted in immediate improvement, and it just goes to show no matter how competent you think you are there is always scope to develop your skills. His patient and relaxed approach along with a positive attitude and his considerable race experience in multiple disciplines are a very effective combination indeed.”

Andrew Smith: Lola T70, Jaguar E type, Lotus Exige, Ferrari F430

“There are a very few drivers who can claim to drive a modern or historic race car as fast as Olly, there are fewer still who can use that skill to coach others. Olly’s professional approach and invaluable advice at and away from the circuit has helped my enormously throughout the past few years. I would recommend his services to anyone and trust him implicitly with any race car.”

Harvey Stanley: 2019 2.0L Cup Class Champion

“Olly’s coaching materially improved my results throughout the 2019 season. His analytical use of data and ability to communicate clearly and concisely unlocked a significant amount of lap time. Olly is the gentleman’s professional; he makes learning enjoyable and has an infectious determination to win.”

Richard Cook: 2019 2.0L Cup Class Champion, 2019 Modena Cento Ore Overall Winner

“Having completed two years in a junior formula racing a front wheel drive car my father decided that when I moved on to racing a rear wheel drive car especially a Morgan, Olly would be the perfect individual to give tuition. As Olly has raced Morgans and historic and modern cars with great success he was the obvious choice, his calm and collective approach to giving tuition was fantastic, he took a great amount of time working on driving technique through the use of video and data to maximise and improve my driving skills on track. After a few days coaching with Olly, I improved significantly and my laps times came down and my confidence grew each time. Not only is Olly a fantastic driver and coach he was also able to aid me in embarking on my first ever season racing in GT’s, he organised meetings with various teams and used his vast experience and knowledge to evaluated the best car for me to begin in. I would recommend Olly to anyone who is starting out racing and even to those experience racers; we are all constantly learning and Olly can take your driving ability to the next level.”

William Plant: 2017 HSCC Champion & 2014 GT Cup Class B Vice-Champion

“I started having instruction with Olly during winter 2007, in preparation for my 2008 championship season. I find his instruction/tuition to be clear, concise and effective, not only for the practical elements involved in a quick lap but also for a drivers correct mental approach to driving. All projected with a calm and patient approach due to Olly’s experience as a successful GT driver. This year i have achieved several podiums including a 2nd at Spa in only my second year of racing!

I put my success down to a new found mental approach to my racing as well as becoming a more skilled driver with the ability to drive consistently quick laps all of which i would like to thank Olly for!”

“If you want to improve your golf handicap, you book lessons with a pro…
If you want to get fitter, you join a gym or hire a personal trainer…
If you want to go faster in your racing car, you throw more money at your car…
WRONG… you should employ the services of Oliver Bryant.

Trust me, I’ve done the golf pro bit and it works, I’ve done the personal trainer bit and it works, I’ve done the Oliver Bryant bit and that works too.

There’s little point in having the quickest car if don’t have the skills to drive it.

Oliver arranged sessions and Brands Hatch, Castle Combe, Silverstone and Goodwood and we used my Lotus Exige. How would I sum up the experience?…

It worked. My lap times have come down. My car control is better. My reading the circuit is better. My race craft is better. Oliver has exceptional skills, the time spent with him was challenging, motivational and inspirational and most importantly money well spent. And it’s saved me throwing unnecessary money at the car.

Thanks Oliver it was great!”
