Alan Sidorov writes: I began my racing career living in a pup tent near Snetterton race track in England, and have since competed and won in a variety of categories around the world. As for advanced driving, I began teaching for the Jim Russell Racing School in the UK, specializing in the advanced driving and skid circuit areas. I worked with numerous corporations, police, automotive writers and so on.
In the USA, I was a consultant for ten years with the Skip Barber Racing and Advanced Driving Schools, during which time I rewrote all the school curricula, developed an intensive instructor training program, (just because someone drives a racing car doesn’t automatically make them a skilled teacher) and designed special programs for high schools and corporations as well as developing an instrumented vehicle testing program. I also got involved in development work for various manufacturers, some precision driving for films, and crash investigation.
I currently live in Whistler, British Columbia. In addition to writing on the subject of driving, I do private training clinics and some movie work, as well as public speaking on development of safe motoring skills.
