Have you considered Drivers’ Education (DE), but are not sure if you want to take your car on a race track? Do you have a friend that you have told about your DE experience that would like to check it out? Is your spouse or significant other curious about what you find so intriguing about DE? The Riesentöter “Introduction to Drivers Education” program is a way for interested drivers to explore Drivers Education without enrolling for a full event.
Your one day Drivers Education experience will start with an informative introductory classroom presentation about Drivers Education, safety, skills and the knowledge that are required in order to drive your car at high speed on a racing surface. After the classroom you will proceed to “Grid Tech” with your car where you will learn what safety issues are looked at before allowing a car on the race track. Then you will drive on the race track for the 1st time behind a pace car at parade lap speeds to become familiar with the track and the proper line that is required to control your car at high speed. The next step in your introductory experience will have an RTR instructor join you in the right seat of your car for your 1st session at speed. You will be on the track only with other introduction students and the instructor will teach you how to safely drive your car at speed. Once you have competed your laps at speed you will join your instructor in their car as a passenger in one of the instructed run groups to observe how all the knowledge and skills you have learned are applied to drive consistent safe laps at speed.
The cost for this program is $50. You must be a licensed driver and at least18 years old. Helmets, long pants and closed toe shoes are required and the helmet must be Snell approved with either a 2005 or 2010 certification. Also your car will be required to pass a pre event tech inspection. RTR runs tech inspections on Saturdays 2 weeks prior to the event and the cost of the tech inspection is included in your registration fee.
