OUR METHODS

TRAINING METHODS :

The Duqueine Engineering simulation centre is designed to seek out the slightest driver lack of skill thanks to the analysis and virtual situation tools. This method enables improvement of his performance both in terms of working method and his driving and handover management skills.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS DRIVING ON SIMULATOR:

  • Driver muscle training introduction (bicycle, rowing machine, F1 training)
  • Introduction to reflexes and concentration with the BATAK
  • Briefing with the simulator specialist engineer and familiarisation with the machine
  • Driver behaviour analysis on the simulator
  • Targetting of the points to work on thanks to the data acquisition system
  • Track test day work process. Driver analysis after each run with a team operations engineer
  • Driver strong and weak points debriefing
  • Advice on points to work on for the next track sessions

ANALYSIS OF THE BEHAVIOR OF THE PILOT IN SITUATION:

  • Driver muscle training introduction (bicycle, rowing machine, F1 training)
  • Introduction to reflexes and concentration with the BATAK
  • Briefing with the simulator specialist engineer and familiarisation with the machine
  • Actual situation training for the whole day (Simulator, BATAK with cardio tools: rowing machine + bicycle and force tools: F1 training and arm extension Technogym) in order to analyse the driver different key points supervised by a team specialised engineer
  • Driver behaviour analysis at a high cardiac frequency run (cardio with rowing machine + BATAK)
  • Fatigue analysis throughout the day thanks to performances on the BATAK
  • Regularity analysis for a long run of approximately 25 laps thanks to data acquisition
  • Analysis of application of driver advice and driving strategies
  • Debriefing with the engineer: look at driver behaviour changes
  • Day summing up: define the lines to work on and advice to apply throughout forthcoming races

About our methods

"Our training methods are adapted to all, allowing beginners as well as confirmed ones to progress in their driving"

SIMULATOR + REAL TEST:

  • Driver muscle training introduction (bicycle, rowing machine, F1 training)
  • Introduction to reflexes and concentration with the BATAK
  • Briefing with the simulator specialist engineer and familiarisation with the machine
  • Discovering the Alès engineering centre track on the simulator with the modelised vehicle of the one the driver will drive the actual track (F4 or FR2.0)
  • Analysis of the drive with a team operations engineer by comparison with a reference lap, thanks to the data acquisition system identical to the actual system. Technical advice and explanation on the drive. Setting up of working methods to apply during the briefings, meetings and races
  • Application of advice in order to validate driving before going on to the real thing
  • Briefing on the actual car before going out onto the track
  • Test session divided up into several runs of 10 to 12 laps and data analysis with a team operations engineer
  • Analysis and comparison of application of the driving advice found on the simulator during the actual session
  • Driving on the simulator: validation of progress since the start of the day
  • Debriefing of the performance and progress summing up
  • Advice to apply for the next driving sessions
