About Us


Here at MeadeSports, we live and breathe racing – and we’re here to help YOU.

You don’t always need more power to go faster – sometimes what you need is a car that’s EASIER to DRIVE FAST.
There is definite power in setup! The right suspension, right corner weight balance, and correct tires –
It all adds up to a car that is easier to drive to its potential and we can help you achieve this.
From a simple lesson in your garage, to a full day at the track, and even on event servicing –
Whatever your setup needs may be, MeadeSports is here to help!

Instructing Philosophy

As an instructor, we are the ‘front line’ with the students, how they feel when we get out of the car is what stays with them for the day, or the rest of their life, the encouragement we offer, the steps we teach, and the experience and excitement we leave them with is why they’ll come back.

The goal is to make sure students, VIPs and customers leave the day feeling excited, exhilarated and exhausted. But cant wait for the next day.

Goal: Teach a driving philosophy of 100% accuracy and 80% speed has been very fruitful, it is not only how we instruct and coach but how we drive ourselves in competition to have mechanical sympathy while driving, whether just lapping, or against the clock.We win rallies with this philosophy and set fastest stage times with this philosophy.
