3 Day School Description
Day 1: Begin with a brief classroom session followed immediately by track time in one of the patented slide cars. Observe trackside demonstrations by the instructors followed by an additional classroom session and on-track practice with 1 of the street cars. After a short introduction to the racecars, safety equipment, safety flags and a short discussion about racing etiquette finish the day with 2 track sessions in the racecars.
Day 2: Day 2 kicks off with brief classroom instruction before your session in the slide cars or street cars. The objective of day 2 is to ingrain every bump, wrinkle and visible track marker into your racing mindset. 4 additional track sessions in the racecars add to your knowledge gained the previous day, applying theory to the real world. You will be given an abundant amount of seat time, practicing and perfecting the skills required to advance to the final day.
Day 3: It's time to apply your new-found skills to devour the track! A slide car session is combined with 5 track sessions in the racecars to work on little nuances that trim the last few tenths off your lap times. At the end of this course you will be well on your way to holding the checkered flag.
