Skills development includes:
Learn the importance of weight/load management in performance driving and discover the difference that braking technique, throttle management and steering input have on the handling dynamics of a vehicle.
The most important skill to master for any type of driving is proper use of the eyes. Learning to look where you want to go and looking as far ahead as possible is important in order to be smooth, drive the correct line and control the vehicle. Our instructors place heavy emphasis on this and know how to fine tune proper vision skills.
On our specially designed skid pad, you will learn and practice understeer and oversteer. Our instructors will teach you how to recognize when these situations occur, know why they occur and learn how to correct them.
Become the master of smooth transitions by learning the art of rev-matching through heel-toe shifting. Learn how to match the engine speed (RPM) to the axle speed to eliminate the jolt of the drivetrain when downshifting.
The proper line allows for the most speed through the turn at the exit and/or positions the vehicle for the next turn. Learning to find the turn-in, apex and exit points is a matter of using your eyes correctly, braking, steering and throttle inputs.
Developing a feel for the brakes and maximizing the tires capability by finding the threshold before the tire loses grip is only part of proper braking techniques. Learning how apply initial brake pressure in a variety of conditions improves the distance required to slow the vehicle to the proper entrance speed to a corner.
Outstanding – Instructors were great, cars were fantastic. Loved the launch control and skid pad. My track skills improved dramatically. A great two days.”- Todd B.
