I believe in combining pure adrenalin, high speed driving, maximum safety, education and passion for everything AMG stands for.


I have been involved with Mercedes-Benz and AMG Driver Training for 14 years and in the industry for 20 years, much the same as my professional motorsport career. I have a passion for cars. I drive them fast when I’m in a race going environment and drive them extra cautiously when I’m on the road where I need to be a safer driver. I train people to be safe drivers and in the same go I’m hopefully making our roads a safer place.

What I want to achieve with the AMG Driving Academy is vast. AMG is the epitome of high performance engines, design and technology. Our cars offer the most exhilarating experience you can ever have in your life. AMG adds a whole new meaning to high performance driving.

When one thinks AMG it must be about pure adrenalin, a high speed driving adventure coupled with maximum safety. This means, we need to be educated by way of advanced driver training and AMG product awareness conducted by our passionate team of driving professionals. Theoretically we’ll spend time with you appreciating what AMG is about, the rest will be done behind the steering wheel, as they say in motor racing “there’s no substitute for time spent behind the wheel”

It is most rewarding to building someone from where they walk in very nervous & unsure, to being comfortable and able.
