I concur. I used all of his circuit guides before I did my Time Attack rounds. He has done most UK circuits, with a couple of notable exceptions.

My only advice is to avoid his other videos. He has a tendency to talk absolute rubbish about anything that doesn't involve driving skills.

I agree his driving skill and technique is spot on. It’s put me where I am now lol
But on the other hand sometimes bores you to tears

I always study his Snetterton video before driving my local track. Excellent recommendation Chris :thumleft:

I've used these before a race weekend as well. Definitely a good resource if you've never been to a circuit, and even for tips on ones you have.
