NCM July High Performance Drivers Introduction

NCM Motorsport Park

About this event

High Performance Drivers Introduction – HPDI

 

The High Performance Drivers Introduction is a “101” on track program introducing new drivers to the hobby of recreational performance driving. Here's what its about:

 

• Introducing new drivers to the recreational performance driving.

• Creating a lower cost, lower time commitment program to make it easier for drivers to give the sport a try.

• Breaking down the barriers of entry to the sport by keeping groups small, concentrated, and social.

• Creating more prepared drivers – demonstrating what to expect from a performance driving event, as well as demonstrating what is needed and expected from a driver and their vehicle.

• Makes for a great car club or group activity!

 

So how does it work?

 

The premise of the program will be small, concentrated groups cycling between a Lead/Follow on-track program paired with classroom sessions on what to expect from performance driving events, as well as teaching basic technique and terms needed for success in performance driving.

 

Things covered in the On-Track curriculum:

 

• Basic car control

• Breaking down the corner - Turn In, Apex, Track Out

• Corner Stations, Brake Markers, Pit In/Out signs

• Having fun on track!

• Personal protective equipment requirements – What equipment is required?

• Flags – Why are they there? What do they mean?

• Communicating with your instructor on and off the track

• Basic performance driving techniques

• How to get the most out of performance driving

 

Cost: $300
