"Rik Kasius and Motorsport Consulting is my go-to solution for top quality data and race engineering support. He combines professionalism and knowledge with an approachable and charismatic manner, and I know I can rely on him to provide my clients with the level of service they expect and still exceed expectations in key areas. I look forward to working with Rik in 2015 and beyond."
Adrien De Leener- Ferrari 458 ELMS Driver AF Corse, Maserati Tropheo Driver
'I have been working with Rik for a year now and he’s not only a fantastic coach but also fun person to work with. We scheduled a great winter training program during December 2013 and started a program that focused on consistency, precision and mental approach. Rik always prepares each session with target focal points and specific goals that we reflect on and work in continuous progression though continuous feedback.
I definitely have Rik to thank for my progress in not just my driving ability but also my whole approach to testing and race weekends. I’m really able to maximize each session and continue the progress we started in the simulator room."
Alex Hawkridge - Chairman iZone driver Performance and former Toleman F1 Managing Director
"Rik Kasius has been involved in the development of iZone Driver Performance both in his post Graduate time at Cranfield University and subsequently as a Driver Coach.
He is highly intelligent, pragmatic and industrious and his skills have brought another dimension to our business, which continues to go from strength to strength. iZone is built around quite complex computer software and Rik’s expertise in this area has also been of great value.
He has developed into a well rounded data engineer with a lot of trackside experience as well as his coaching skills, which have been honed on simulators at iZone.
On a personal basis I found him to have a strong work ethic and an open mind. He is a very fast learner who finds solutions not problems. A great asset to any business."
Alex Kapadia- 2013 ELMS LMP2 driver
"I had to prepare for a big event where I would get very little track time in practice. I came to iZone and worked with Rik. I was impressed with Rik’s style of coaching and his approach. His eye tracking and vision techniques were extremely useful and helped me put in a strong performance at the event. Despite having raced successfully for years you can always learn something new from someone else’s knowledge. I would recommend anyone to Rik in the future."
John Pratt - iZone Performance Director
"Over the past year we have worked very closely with Motorsport Consulting on a number of different projects, our relationship has been very productive and we see a lot of potential for the future!"
Meindert van Buuren – Auto GP driver
"It was a great pleasure to work with Rik to prepare for the 2013 season and keep on working on good performance during the season. He always tried to accommodate me perfectly, training in and outside the simulator really enhanced my performance. The experience gained is very valuable and it will undoubtedly benefit me throughout my career. Still every time we work together I feel I learn more and more and the overall communication is very accurate and helpful."
Clive Temple BA (Hons) MA FCIM - Programme Director and Senior Lecturer, MSc Motorsport Engineering and Management
"Rik Kasius studied the MSc Motorsport Engineering and Management. He joined the programme with valuable insight where race engineering was concerned. During his time at Cranfield University Rik developed his knowledge, critically in relation to the interface and communication between race engineers and racing drivers.
While on the MSc, Rik worked with John Pratt at iZone driver performance, using their simulator at Silverstone to test the effectiveness of verbal communication from race engineer to race driver by means of internally and externally focussed attention."
Steijn Schothorst - European Cup and NEC Formula Renault 2.0 driver for Josef Kaufmann Racing
“Thanks to the training with iZone I've developed racing skills such as qualifying and consistency, but also outside of the track it helps me keeping my focus on racing and everything around it.”
Torsten van Haasteren- Team Manager 'Team Bleekemolen Racing'
"We’ve known Rik from Motorsport Consulting for a couple of years now and have always worked well together. With our Porsche Carrera Cup and Supercup cars we were able to make correct judgement of the performance of car and driver which is essential to move forward throughout the season."
