High Performance Driving Schools

Start with the time-tested Skip Barber Racing formula and add great experience behind the wheel of a variety of high performance sports cars. You drive the machines hard, in a multitude of settings: autocross, skid pad, and threshold braking zones.

You’ll practice, hone and come to understand at-the-limit vehicle dynamics as you practice slides and recoveries, “lane tosses” and accident avoidance techniques.  In this program, there are two sessions on the skid pad. The additional skid pad training enhances the opportunity to master car control  – some students will begin to master the power slide technique.  This intense instruction is conducted all while giving the student the opportunity to contrast and compare the handling, power and ergonomics of different high-end sports cars.

Drivers who participate in a High Performance Driving School have the opportunity to win a 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. To learn more about the Skip Barber Hyundai Time-Attack, click here.

Upon completion of the High Performance School, students are eligible to enroll in the  Advanced High Performance Driving School.  Students can also elect to take our One Day Racing School or Three Day Racing School.

Advanced High Performance Driving School

This one day program picks up right where the High Performance School leaves off. Students of the Advanced High Performance Driving School spend all day on the race track. You will experience the thrill of handling these high-powered vehicles on the same world famous road courses that host professional races throughout the year. This is the ultimate driving experience! The curriculum includes intensive sector training over various types of corners, using the “heel and toe” downshift technique. In the morning session, the tracks are broken up into sections  that are isolated to learn small sectors of the track and the correct racing line. A braking exercise will also take place that builds upon the braking learned in the one day High Performance Driving School course. The afternoon consists of lead follow sessions on track. You will drive many different cars during the lead follows. The program features the Porsche 911, Lexus ISF, Hyundai Genesis Coupe, Mazdaspeed 3, and the Mazda RX-8.

Graduates of the Advanced High Performance Driving School are eligible to register for the Advanced Car Control School (an Advanced Skip Barber Racing School activity), as well as the One Day Racing School or Three Day Racing School.

Want a 2 Day Program? Call 1-800-221-1131 and ask about our special bundle pricing package if you purchase both the High Performance Driving School and Advanced High Performance Driving School.

Prerequisites: Driver must be a graduate of the High Performance School or have sufficient track experience subject to approval by the chief instructor.
