About this event
Apex Performance Driving School and Gulfcoast Autocrossers invite you to attend the Level One school at Buckingham Airfield, located at 3987 Sunset Road, Lehigh Acres, FL 33971 on Saturday, May 21, 2022.
This intensive one-day driving program is tailored to everyone from a novice driver to a seasoned veteran. It is arguably the most important Level in the Apex series of programs. Designed to drastically improve your knowledge of basic vehicle dynamics and the core fundamentals of performance driving, this Level One program will provide you the foundation from which to unlock your true potential as a driver, both on the road and on the track.
The day begins with a driver’s meeting and brief classroom session, Driver Dynamics 101, covering the core fundamentals of high-performance driving including basic vehicle dynamics, seating position, and understanding of the driving line. Participants then begin a series of rotations through learning modules such as the Triple S (Slalom, Speed, Stop) and the Figure-8. Our Lunch ‘n Learn session includes a catered lunch and will offer a debrief of the morning sessions as well as set a foundation for the afternoon schedule. After lunch, participants will learn the basics of walking an autocross course, then set out to tackle the Autocross Challenge before wrapping up the day with a closing debrief meeting. Will you win the Challenge? Maybe so…and we might have a special prize for the winner.
Consider this program as an investment. Just as you might spend thousands of dollars on upgrading suspension, tires, or your engine, you must also consider investing in the nut behind the wheel. If you are looking to drop your times on course and become a more consistent as well as safe driver, Apex will be your all-time best investment you ever make.
Maximum 2 drivers per car. Cost for the full-day school including lunch is $295.
