SSC Lotus Melbourne Driving Academy



Would you like to be a better driver?

Want to learn how get the most from your Lotus sports car?



Lotus Melbourne has partnered with Evolve Driving Training to bring you the Lotus Melbourne Driving Academy. With track events available every month we can tailor a program that will help you rapidly enhance your driving ability. Using a variety of tools such as practical in-car track sessions, development theory sessions, data and video analysis you will learn from Lotus racing experts about vehicle dynamics, driving technique and ideal racing lines.




The Melbourne Lotus Driving Academy will be headed by experienced Lotus racers Mark O'Connor and Tony D'Alberto.

With over fifteen years experience driving Lotus race cars and managing Lotus race teams at a national level Mark has a wealth of knowledge with regard to what it takes to get the most from a Lotus sports car. Tony will be our lead instructor and has a lot of experience in this space. Tony raced with the Lotus Cars Australia Production Car team in 2018 and is currently racing in TCR and the V8 Supercar series with the championship winning DJR Team Penske.

Rounding out the team will be Lotus Melbourne's senior technician Alex Gellings who has also racked up considerable Lotus racing experience supporting the APC and the Lotus Targa teams for the past few years. Alex will be on hand to ensure the cars are performing at their best and the tyre pressures are correct so that you can concentrate on the driving. Combining this team of Lotus experts with the team from Evolve Driver Training will allow us to provide Lotus owners with a world class driver training experience.
