Located in the motorsports capital of the world in Indianapolis, Indiana, iAdvance Motorsports is set to increase simulator and coaching programs for the motorsports world. Working with drivers from karting through the junior open wheel programs and onwards into the professional ranks of IndyCar, World Challenge and IMSA, iAdvance Motorsports will continue to do all of that, as well as add to their growing program. With room for an additional six to eight on track coaching clients, as well as the ability to accommodate anyone on the simulator, iAdvance Motorsports is ready and able to help you climb to the top step of the podium.

Owned and operated by former Chip Ganassi Racing and AJ Foyt Racing driver Darren Manning, iAdvance Motorsports has quickly evolved into one the leading simulation and driver coaching programs in the United States.

“I have done a lot in my life and learned from experiences in Champ Car, IndyCar, Formula One and the SportsCar world. Some of these experiences were good and some bad,” explained Manning. “Since I got out of the driver’s seat, I have been growing my business and developing programs to help the future of the sport. Help them accelerate their learning, but also keep them away from the common mistakes. I have been lucky enough to have been associated with some great drivers and programs, but with a better structure in place and looking to fill a void in the industry, I am ready to push on with increased programs.”

Most recently, Manning and his iAdvance Motorsports program has been working with Indy Lights driver Dalton Kellett and Mexican F4 standout and Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship driver Jak Crawford. Additionally, iAdvance Motorsports has had several requests for coaching services but due to conflicts, had to decline…but not in the future.

Manning added, “I have provided several services across a broad spectrum but want to narrow those services down. I am looking to add to my coaching program both on site and virtually as well as increase available simulator time for drivers. We have a program that is unlike others and each driver that comes into our facility usually returns for more training in the future. As far as at the track coaching, I have begun to contract services of several high level, professional coaches. These are people that report directly to me, follow my guide in coaching and share the same passion for driver development as I do. I will be available to look at data and video remotely, thus providing more bang for the driver’s buck. At the end of the day, we are an elite level program and only have the availability to coach an additional six to eight drivers on track at events, as well as have unlimited opportunities in the iAdvance Motorsports simulator.

“Using the latest software, we have modeled cars and tracks to be as close to the real thing as possible. With it’s real brake caliper and master cylinder, real throttle assembly, and force feedback steering with authentic steering wheel, iAdvance Motorsports can work closely with all drivers of any skill level to simulate as real a sensation as possible. With the ability to change car setups, we can teach drivers the responses to mechanical changes on the car, and what they will feel on track. Additionally, through our data software, we can pinpoint strong and weak areas of the driver, help them learn new tracks and cars, and simulate the closest on track experience possible.”

Manning continued, “Through my career and experience, I have several connections within motorsports but I am really looking to elevate my business with kart racers looking to make the move to cars. Our simulator program can get you ready for any on track experience, accelerate the learning curve and give you experience before you hit the track in a real feel environment.”

With simulator time available and coaching services available, interested teams and drivers are asked to contact iAdvance Motorsports by phone at 317.332.6309, via email to or by visiting them online at
