A Quick Introduction For An Entire Day Of Driving!
Whether you are a Bertil Roos PDC Novice driver, a returning Solo driver, or a driver from another club looking for some extra seat time, this event will yield plenty of value. Drivers who attend this event will have long lapping sessions to really hone in on their race lines and driving techniques. The day will start off with a basic tech inspection that will lead into a track preview. During the track preview, our instructors will take the drivers for a few laps around the track to show them the suggested basic driving line, potential hazardous areas, and point out any handy reference marks. Once the drivers have seen a quick preview of the track, they will have a brief drivers meeting with the Bertil Roos Racing School's head instructor, and then take to the track in their cars.
Long Sessions For Quick Laps!
The Bertil Roos Racing School utilizes 1 hour lapping sessions for the Performance Driving Clinic for some very good reasons. These reason include:
- Plenty of continuous lapping time for valuable practice and focus.
- Cool down time variation from car to car.
- The flexibility of drivers to conduct lapping sessions on their own agenda.
- Plenty of time to get fuel and conduct maintenance between sessions.
- Plenty of time for pit stops during the sessions.
- Ability to request for an instructor to ride along if wanted.
- Less stress on the drivers and our staff overall.
After years of track experience and instruction, we have found that nice, long sessions are perfect for these types of events.
Valuable Instruction Is Close At Hand!
Should a driver like to gain some additional instruction and training, our instructors are always on call track-side to ride shotgun. This allows drivers to receive immediate and more accurate feedback from our instructors. When our instructors are not riding with drivers, they are posted at various areas on track so that they may observe and gather information on drivers from different perspectives.
Rain? Of Course We Drive In The Rain!
The Bertil Roos Racing School conducts our scheduled events rain or shine. We recognize the value of advanced car control practice via driving in the wet. We will, however, delay or postpone the event if track conditions become hazardous to the drivers and cars. Please refer to our website, racenow.com, or contact our office for information regarding our weather-related cancelation policy.
