MSA delivers first Performance Master Classes
The MSA Academy launched its first three Performance Master Classes at Castle Combe last weekend, introducing drivers in the MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain to some of the basic elements of human performance. The three sessions were delivered at Castle Combe by MSA Academy Coaches Greg Symes and Tom Gaymor. They explored the concepts of: ‘What does it take?’ – the skills needed to be a top-line driver; ‘Eating to Win’ – the principles of nutrition and hydration; and ‘Racing Parent’ – a specific session for parents and guardians to help them explore their roles and find the right balance to give their children maximum support.

The team was joined by on Saturday by Andrew Turvey – father of GP2 racer Oliver – who shared some insights into life as a racing parent in a major international series.

MSA Performance Director Robert Reid said: “These Master Classes have been developed in conjunction with the Youth Sport Trust and in partnership with the Racing Steps Foundation to mirror similar programmes in other sports. The Master Classes sit underneath the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE) programme within the MSA Academy structure, so the ideas we discuss here are dealt with in more detail higher up the Academy.”

Three additional Classes – ‘Talking to Team You’, ‘Goals and planning’ and ‘Race fitness’ – will be added to the programme from next month.
