Set-up Consultancy

Your race car may be superbly prepared by a top race team, but unless it is regularly track-tested and set-up by a professional test driver, it may not be performing at its best. Navigate the website for Race History, Cars Raced and Cars Tested to understand Roberto’s Experience.

Roberto works in partnership with individuals, teams or preparers to assess and adjust your car so you get the most from it. Roberto offers a rare and unrivalled combination of racecraft and engineering.

“My Son and I first contacted Roberto for driver training over 3 years ago. The results were instant and remarkable. His patient, friendly and professional tuition soon saw our lap times tumble. We are now safer, faster and braver! The unexpected bonus was gaining access to Roberto’s car set-up knowledge and experience. Given my Son and I now race a mid-engined car, this has proved the difference between a tail-happy beast and a class winner!”

"Roberto explains his racing technique in a logical way that enables his client to build up his confidence and reduce his lap times whilst improving his car control. Setting up a car is a highly complex art that requires years of mechanical knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of the car and in my experience very few racing drivers ever master this art. Roberto is one of the few.”
