You’ll practice and come to understand at-the-limit vehicle dynamics as you practice slides and recoveries, “lane tosses” and accident avoidance techniques. And all the while you can contrast and compare the handling, power and ergonomics of different high-end sports cars.

Next Step? the Advanced High Performance Driving School

 

Advanced High Performance Driving School

This one day program picks up right where the 1 Day High Performance School or High Performance Driving and Racing Combo leave 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.

Next Step? 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.
