Please join us and our Motorsports Safety Foundation Certified instructors for an evening of learning and fun at Calabogie Motorsports Park. This evening is particularly intended for drivers with little or no experience driving a car on a closed circuit (but experienced drivers are welcomed too, we have two run groups). This evening Advanced Driving School (ADS) event fits in perfectly between the webinar "Taking Your Car to the Track"  webinar (which demystifies the whole track day thing) and our regular whole-day Advanced Driving School scheduled for later in the season (see our website for all of these details).  

In accordance with sanitary measures, we will have an online driver meeting, socially distanced instructor-students meeting in small group in the paddock preceding and following on track session. The format for the evening is a lead and follow program where we target to have a very small ratio of students to instructor (ideally 2 to 1). While on track, the two students will exchange position every lap behind the instructor. 

Schedule event is:

  • 4:00 arrival and finalize registration
  • 4:30 Instructor-student introductions
  • 5:00 Group 1 on track, lead and follow
  • 5:30 Group 2 on track, lead and follow
  • 6:00 Group 1 on track, lead and follow
  • 6:30 Group 2 on track, lead and follow
  • 7:00 Closing words

Student evaluation form sent a few days following the event.
