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.
Practice the technique of transferring weight to the front and rear of the vehicle. Learn to correctly use the throttle in order to get the vehicle to respond.
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.
Develop Trail Braking skills by learning the right way to release brake pressure while turning into a corner. This technique transfers weight toward the front of the vehicle to load the front tires and aid in turning ability, and maximizes the tire capability.
As I hoped - this course exceeded my expectations. The content, instructors and equipment was and is top notch. I can’t recommend this course enough for anyone who has a Porsche or who would love to learn more about car control!Rob E.
