Introduction:  What is Winter Driver Training? 

The most danger a driver will face in their life is during driving and especially prior to gaining enough experience in handling adverse conditions such as winter or emergencies.  

Our goal is to serve the general public through sharing some of the special driving techniques we have acquired through motorsports/racing experience.  The goal is to develop superior car control skills to tackle reduced grip on ice and snow or any other emergency situation all year round.  We will improve your driving no matter how experienced you are and we aim to make this a very pleasant and fun experience driving on the ice! 

Who are the instructors?

Our team of instructors come from various motorsports/racing backgrounds.  The instructors are comprised of International and national autocross champions, formula car and high performance driving instructors, time attack competitors, sports/touring car, go kart and rally drivers.  They all have the same passion in driving and are skilled in their respective disciplines of motorsport/racing.  The team would love to pass their experience and car control skills to you!  It is highly likely some of these skills we teach you may never have heard or dreamed of as being possible! 

Where can I attend?
