    This is an excellent coaching video from Rob at L7C who had a good session with Jamie Unwin. If you ever wanted to understand why a good driver coach can make such a difference then watching this will help you understand. From my point of view, it taught me a lot of new ideas to try when I eventually escape my lockdown and get back traveling.

    First corner analysis starts at 6:11 if you want to fast forward.

    Jump to the sections of the video of interest:
    0:00 Introduction
    6:11 Redgate
    19:20 Hollywood & Craner Curves
    27:35 Old Hairpin
    31:58 Starkeys Bridge & Schwantz Curve
    35:50 Mcleans
    43:30 Top Corner
    53:00 Fogarty Esses
    55:40 Melbourne Loop
    58:40 Goddards
    1:02:58 Simulator Lap

    If you want to drive Donington for the first time this is a good video to look at once you have the layout clear in your mind.

    The instructor is Jamie Unwin at
    He instructs at Lotus 7 Club HPDE events in the UK and so knows a lot about driving sevens well
