Motorsport in Taiwan UK instructor

Postby shiadoa » 13 Aug 2012, 00:57

Hi just joined Forumosa although have been here a while.....I am an ARDS FIA race/rally/drift instructor from england currently working on supercar tours and various Track proposals and we have just got the Caterham distributorship for Taiwan. Motorsport is coming on here now and I would be interested to hear of any car related "events" proposed at any venues in Taiwan.
My sincere apologies but i can only find TIS as a posting... but several new venues are being built and PIC is in use now so there is a little variety at last! :bravo:
Hope to meet some petrol heads...... :roll:

Which track do you give lessons at? There were some Japanese drivers here a few weeks ago looking to open a driving school down in Pen Bay.

Hi have been teaching porsche/ferrari drivers etc, here,mainly on road and the supercar tour down in Taidong (we have a small track there)...unfortunately i seem to have accumulated many work responsibilities here somehow :roll: .....so no time to instruct much these days
we are also busy on another track where we will run the Caterham drift and race school from......i cant wait to have something nearer to Taichung to use :bravo:
So lots going on........only time I have been speechless in my life was when TV/press asked me what i thought of driving standards in Taiwan :roflmao: probably much safer on track I think!

Sounds interesting. Can you tell us more details regarding the school? (location, pricing etc)

If you're ever looking for a casual instructor I may be able to help. Not ARDS, but I raced for 20 years (saloons and single seaters) in the UK before I moved here.
