What our clients are saying

Having graduated from the Ferrari track-driving program I thought I knew what I needed to know to be happy on the track with my Ferrari 599. But after four days on the track with George coaching me, my skill level has soared. More importantly my confidence has soared as well. Instead of seeing the track as hundreds of quick, scary decisions, I now experience it as a continuously-flowing, gliding mosaic. Instead of watching the track race at me, I now see the track in slow motion. George’s calm and insightful interventions and explanations have been crucial in getting me to this rewarding level. My fun and safety have multiplied by three and now I can really appreciate my car for the design and engineering masterpiece it is.

George’s superior ability to improve the daily driving skills of drivers is the greatest investment we can make in our children (and ourselves!). A caring parent should insist that a coach of his caliber advance their children’s skills to a high level. I can recommend George Csanadi without qualification.

I cannot say enough about my recent experience with George at Daytona International Speedway. His patience in working with a novice driver such as me should be commended. The way he was able to talk me through the ins and outs of racing / driving was amazing. Although I was quite nervous my first few laps around the track, it quickly became apparent why George came so highly recommended. He guided me through each part of the process. It was almost like he knew what I was thinking and answered my questions before I had a chance to ask them. His expertise made me feels privileged just to sit in the same car with him, let alone coach me through a track exceeding speeds of 160 mph.

The other amazing part was his service and disposition. George was down to earth, very sincere and I walked away feeling like I had just received 5 star service for 2 star pricing. It’s been two weeks and I am still in awe.

All in all, it was a bucket list experience, which never would have been so much FUN without the guidance and support of George. I have trained with other drivers who I thought did a pretty good job, now I know hiring anyone other than George is a waste of my money. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who has a driving need or interest.
