“I would also like to highly endorse the Chief Instructor Iain Duncan’s teaching methodology and skill-sets. As one qualified and experienced in hypnotic learning methods, I recognised and can attest that Iain is not only skilled in driving and teaching, but as importantly, is knowledgeable in embedding information into the sub-conscious mind. Iain knows how to ‘fractionate’ learning experiences, oscillating between one teaching point to another, with pauses that allow rapid, progressive learning. When he calls time for you to have a break, it’s not just to rest the mind, it’s a ‘tactical pause’ to allow learnings to settle. 

This is no mean feat and involves more sophistication than just monitoring and giving commands in a bored repetitive manner as 95% of instructors do whom are looking just to make money on the side. He is patient and genuinely passionate about instructing to all levels and this appears, as, if not more important to him than pure competition. I have only met a handful of such tutors’ in my professional and sporting pursuits and only one of them was in motorsports. Iain truly wants to increase the profile of rallying.

As one that had a semi-reasonable track career with a few scalps to my name and for comparison, I have also trained with some of the fantastic Flying Finns in rallying. I would rate the LRS, and in particular, Iain’s teaching as being more detailed, surgical and by default, more effective than I experienced in Scandinavia and my Nordic training was of a high standard too so kudos to the LRS team.”

“I had two days of 1-on-1 coaching with Iain Duncan focusing on 4wd driving. My initial expectations were to get input to “finetune” my lose surface driving. As it turned out, I had a lot more work to do as I my driving style was more rwd-based, not using the full potential of awd.

Thanks to Iain’s calm and analytical approach, I made a lot of progress in changing old habits which is always hard. I was very impressed with Iain as driving coach. I find that many driving coaches are very interested in driving but not so much in coaching. Iain is clearly both interested and passionate about the teaching aspect which made the exercise very effective.”
