Courses

NOTE: All course sessions INCLUDE the Open Day event.

Cornering Techniques

$250.00 / driver

  • Classes run 8am - 5pm.
  • Includes open day from 12pm - 5pm.

Since roads are not all straight, turning the wheel is an essential part of driving. Learning how to negotiate Lines and Apexes is a very important part of everyday driving. Participants will learn how to choose the best line through a turn /corner. Choosing the best line allows a driver to have more traction control as well as a better line of sight. Constant, increasing and decreasing radius turns will be discussed as well as theory on controlling under-steer and over-steer.

Program Content

  • Short chalk-talk (lecture)
  • Hands-on drills such as:
    • Lines and Apexes - constant radius, increasing and decreasing, two continuous turns.
    • Heel-toe shifting (if applies to car) and trail braking
    • High-speed slalom
  • Time Trial Drill (includes an afternoon driving around our mile long cone course)

* It is preferred but not mandatory that you have attended Understanding Vehicle Dynamics prior to Cornering Techniques

Lunch Included

Understanding Vehicle Dynamics

$250.00 / driver

  • Classes run 8am - 5pm.
  • Includes open day from 12pm - 5pm.

A proficient driver must understand the forces acting on a vehicle and more importantly how these forces will affect the driver's ability to control their vehicle. Students will learn the scientific aspects of vehicle movement, which will help them to understand and develop a better command of advanced vehicle control. It is an essential part of training that participants leave with a good understanding of how to determine the limits of adhesion and to define the handling capability of the vehicle.

Program Content

Chalk-talk (lecture) on vehicle dynamics and advanced vehicle control Hands on exercises include:

  • Slalom Drills
  • Brake & Turn Drills
  • Evasive Maneuvering Drill
  • Time Trial Drill (includes an afternoon driving around our mile long cone course)

Lunch Included
