Why Instructor Training?
ARPCA started an instructor-training program in support of our regional Driver’s Education program to provide consistent training at our events. Cars have continued to increase in horsepower and capability. As the speeds increase for the new driver, instructing skills need to keep up.
Who can participate?
You must be an approved instructor for the ARPCA region, nearby region, or Pitt Race to register for this event. If you are not currently an approved instructor for one of these groups you will need to talk with Drake Core, the Chief Instructor for ARPCA Region.
Drakes contact information is: Chief.Instructor@ARPCA.com
