"What a fantastic day to work through vehicle dynamics from a fresh perspective. The ability to have cars to drive where we can experiment with and without ABS, for example, really helped to clarify matters with regard to braking and weight balance. Then to take that training on to simulated instructor scenarios gave me time to practice more succinct and effective instruction for my students. I know that my HPDE Students will benefit from my knowledge gained from this course." Park Wiker, HPDE Instructor and program graduate.
