Simraceway's Newest Offering - Track Days Plus

At Simraceway, we offer a unique variant of Track Days called ‘Track Days Plus’. These are track days with the addition of light instruction from top professional instructors to help you improve your driving skills. The instructors at Simraceway are all professional, full time instructors not simply program participants that lend a hand to new drivers, so they are highly qualified to help you sharpen your track driving performance. Our team of professional racers and instructors are focused on one goal – your development as a driver.

Track day operators typically divide drivers up into groups based on experience – A, B, C, and D. Drivers in the A Group are complete beginners when it comes to track driving, while those in the D Group are either professional drivers or racers.

The Track Day Plus events offered by Simraceway are meant to cater to drivers in the B and C categories. If you are currently an A-level driver, we recommend you complete Simraceway's Performance Driving Stage 1 prior to visiting us for a track day. Those who are in the D category are welcome to join the C group for a track day, but we also have other driving opportunities which may better suit your needs. Please contact us for details.
