This week’s episode of Castle Combe Circuit’s live-streamed ‘Combe TV’ show will revolve around motorsport driver performance coaching (and its wider impact on improving day-to-day life), featuring special guests Russell Poynter-Brown from On-Pole and Pete McKnight from Hintsa Performance.

Scheduled for Thursday 4 February at 7pm and hosted by commentator Chris Dawes and the circuit’s Sales and Marketing Director, Tom Davis, the show will highlight how a holistic approach to training can see drivers achieve measurable performance improvements.

Russell and Pete will highlight their proven techniques to help improve both mind and body to help create those crucial extra gains out on track, as well as in everyday life situations.
