"Aspire listens to each of its clients as the answers really do ‘lie within’. This is what they said about us..."

I can't tell you how beneficial that first coaching session was at Rockingham this year, it totally transformed my approach to the 2018 racing season.

The entire process has massively improved my preparation AND performances both in and out of the car, in my training, and also how I coach my own driver clients to bring out the very best of them.

Thank you so much mate, you were such a MASSIVE part of what I achieved this season. Tom.

Tom Ingram - 2019 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) - Team Toyota Driver - 2018 BTCC Vice Champion and BTCC Independents Champion.

"David is one of the most inspirational coaches I've had the privilege of meeting and working with. He's been there and done it. His unique coaching style is derived from his own life experiences in Formula One and climbing 8000m mountains in the Himalayas, so he totally gets it. He has motivated me to see beyond my own sporting abilities and helped me realise the transferable skills I have. That insight has aided my development and transition from elite athlete to inspirational speaker"

Sarah Stevenson MBE - President of UK Taekwondo - Sydney, Athens, Beijing & London Taekwondo Olympian, Olympic Bronze Medal Winner, Two time World Champion and Four time European Champion.

"I’ve been working with Aspire Sports since September 2017. During this short time I have experienced a complete change of mindset. This in turn has drastically improved my overall performance both on track and off, culminating in me winning, not only races, but also the ‘2018 Middle Eastern Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship’ and finishing as Vice Champion in the same series in Asia . David is an incredibly inspirational coach; his unique style is derived from his own, and somewhat exceptional life experiences, which include twenty three years working in international motorsports (predominately World Rally & Formula One) with drivers such as Bruno Senna, Colin McRae, David Coulthard, Eddie Irvine, Johnny Herbert, Mark Webber, Rubens Barrichello, Sebastian Vettel, Valtteri Bottas and Sir Jackie Stewart. Add to that his government past and his climbing 8000m mountains in the Himalayas, and you have a coach who has worked not only the highest levels of motorsport, but understands what it takes to push yourself both physically and mentally to limits of human endurance on the worlds greatest mountain ranges. Aspire Sports offers a unique brand of coaching for any athlete who truly wants to achieve their ultimate goals"

Jack Bartholomew - 2018 Middle East Lamborghini Super Trofeo Champion

"I've been working with Aspire Sports since 2012. During this time I've seen my mindset change from novice to winner. In 2016 I won the Whilton Mill Junior X30 Karting Championship, this achieved through continual marginal gains, consistent performances, and a winning mindset helping me to be the VERY BEST version of myself. This success has progressed to my not only winning races and a championship, but working at iZone Driver Performance at Silverstone. I now also coach young kart racers in Asia and the Americas who compete for the two top academies in the UK, Fusion Motorsport Karting . David is an exceptional coach and has a unique way of dissecting every area of performance in to such simplified terms…his real gift, is his unique ability to immediately get inside the mind of the athlete and help them gain clarity of all the key areas that require improvement." I now apply these same techniques (with great effect) to my young karting clients.

Jac Maybin - 2018 JCW Mini Challenge Driver

“Of all the people I have met during my 30 years in Formula 1, David McMillan has to stand as one of the best communicators and clearest thinkers. It's not difficult for me to see how he has made such a successful transition to Elite Performance Coaching; taking the experience and learning’s from working with the very best F1 drivers who are some of the most competitive individuals in world sport, and combining that with his clarity of thought and message.”

James Allen - International media personality, former Formula One (F1) Presenter, BBC F1 Correspondent & Lead Commentator for BBC 5 Live.

“David has a unique style of coaching based on his extraordinary life experiences and twenty two years in top flight motor sports. Whether in the high pressure world of Formula 1 or the dangerous environment of climbing in the Himalayas David operates with tenacity, professionalism and attention to detail. Without doubt David has the experience, knowledge, language, pedagogical skill and desire to coach precocious talent to the ultimate fulfilment of their abilities.”

Graham Taylor - Head of Performance People Development at UK Sport.

“David is incredibly gifted at what he does and makes THE MOST complicated issue sound ridiculously easy… he has kept me one hundred percent motivated, focussed and relaxed throughout my extended injury period…the last two years would have been mental torture without him.”

David Devine - London 2012 Olympic double bronze medal winning track and field athlete.

“The advice and coaching I have received from David has enabled me to take a much more confident and professional approach to my work ethic. His 'Formula One Team' coaching methods are quite unique, and these qualities have now transferred into my physical and psychological training regimes” David has also helped me see beyond my athletic career and helped me make the transition from World Champion Athlete, to actor and coach.
