Instructing and Coaching

We’ve been instructing ourselves and supplying  quality instructors for events and trackdays for many years.  We are happy to work with individuals, teams and manufacturers and have lots of satisfied customers that have benefited from our instructing and many junior drivers (and senior drivers!) from our coaching – in car and trackside.

Having had a professional relationship with HHC Motorsport for several years now, 2013 saw Jimmy Sime become Team Manager of the Junior Race Car Academy.  He continues to act as a driver coach for the team working mainly with drivers in the Ginetta Junior Championship.

A fancy title perhaps, but one that covers much of our other projects we’ve been involved in, over the last 17 years or so.  These range from Sponsorship/Partner proposals, negotiation and activation, through to Motorsport education, event and hospitality management, to good old fashioned advice on starting out in motorsport – driving, mechanicing or otherwise.

Sime Racing works with selected clients on various preparation and car management projects.

This utilises our collective engineering experience from running, preparing and managing numerous projects and motor racing teams over the years from British Formula Ford, F3, Le Mans/GTs and Historic cars.

Jimmy is additionally a very experienced engine builder, with considerable experience in the motor trade in general. This experience can help to ensure you get the optimum from your package with our dynamic chassis set up process, which encompasses a full digital corner weight set up.

We also ran SRE Motorsport as a BTCC support, Clio and SEAT championship team in “the noughties” helping drivers to achieve numerous podiums over both TOCA support series. Both Barry and Jimmy’s services were contracted to Team Firstair, helping Tim Mullen to the Clio Cup Vice Championship, and Paul Rivett one better with the UK Clio Cup Championship. Jimmy has also been a regular visitor on official business to Le Mans at both the contemporary 24 hour race and the classic Le Mans races.

Today, as well as working as consultants to other teams, businesses and educational establishments, we continue to prepare motorsport vehicles for competition, including our own Mini Cooper S.
