DRIVE MODULES

SKID PAD

Build upon the fundamentals learned in your previous experiences and take car control to the next level. Learn techniques based on load transfer and how to apply them into all driving scenarios. Practice initiating, maintaining, and finishing oversteer as well as correcting and eliminating understeer.

AUTOCROSS

Using a small racetrack comprised of various types of corners and allows for close observation and repetitive learning in a safe environment. Learn to put all your skills together with guidance from our instructors as you search for the perfect lap - smooth (fast), precise, and without hitting any cones.

AUTOCROSS COMPETITION

Showcase your driving skills found during the practice sessions in a competition against your fellow driving enthusiasts. Your goal is to complete the course in the shortest time possible without hitting any cones. Be mindful, though – each cone you hit incurs a time penalty, affecting your final score. Keep it smooth, avoid the cones, and race to the top of the leaderboard!

SECTOR TRAINING

Embark on a journey of sector training, where the race track is split into two sections composed of various corner types. Spend time learning the racing line, practicing techniques, and mastering the challenges of each sector before linking the entire course together later in the day.

CORNERING TECHNIQUE

Practice putting together the "Perfect Corner" in this repetitive exercise designed to develop the feel and instincts to stay within the grip limits of the vehicle. The result is increased confidence and speed across all aspects of performance driving.

TRAIL BRAKING

Master the fine art of brake application and release while navigating through a corner. Discover the advantages of load transfer and how you can use this technique to obtain balance and control. Gain confidence in AMG Dynamics and ESP as you feel its ability to help you get through the corner.

LEAD/FOLLOW

Build upon the foundations gained from prior experience and delve into the intricacies of cornering techniques. Gain a comprehensive understanding of their nuances and explore the limits of the car. Develop seamless transitions between corner segments, refining your racing line, all while integrating precise eye movements and smooth hand inputs for a more immersive driving experience.

SHADOW DRIVING (Upon Instructor Approval

Take your driving to the next level as you get a clear view of the racetrack for the first time while an Instructor follows closely providing real time feedback in each sector. Use these sessions to safely showcase everything you learned in a controlled setting as you earn your stripes before moving onto the PRO level. Note - Successfully completing shadow driving is mandatory before participating in any programming with open lapping sessions.
