About

A lifetime of passion for motorsport and the automobile led Duncan Burke to a career as a contractor serving the automotive industry. Since 2002, Duncan has been working with OEMs as a driver, product specialist and trainer. This diverse experience set has led to travels that have spanned the globe. Duncan has turned laps at the F1 Circuits in Shanghai and Bahrain, built performance drive courses all over the USA and presented new products to help your local dealership communicate value to customers.

In 2005 Pure Driving Events was created to support Duncan’s Club Racing and Motorsport pursuits. This led to the development of a premium trackday racecar rental car service.

The DrivePure BMW M3 was a staple for IMSA gentlemen drivers and coaches to learn the racetracks of the northeast prior to competition. Proudly, DrivePure clients captured wins and podiums in the IMSA ST class. The DrivePure M3 also served regular trackday and HPDE enthusiasts as well as being a competitive BMWCCA Club Racing vehicle, claiming a National Championship in 2011.

Duncan has been helping club racers achieve their goals through all of this. Purchasing his first GPS based data system in 2007, having facts rather than guesses to find speed has been a large part of DrivePure client success.

Familiarity with data systems created the opportunity to work with multi-Championship winning SAC Racing through the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge season as their DAG (Data Acquisition Guy). This meant managing AIM data for the team and Motec data for series compliance in up to 5 cars in two different classes throughout the season.

That brings us to today. DrivePure is the web home of Duncan Burke. Professional Sportscar Spotter, Driver Coach and DAG.
