Performance Driving Program, Stage 1
Monday, November 7, 2016 from 10:30 AM to 5:00 PM (PST)
DRIVE YOUR OWN CAR ON
This one-day program calls on a specially-developed combination of classroom instruction and in-car exercises to help participants understand the full capabilities of their vehicles. Car-control drills will help hone cornering techniques and explore the concept of lateral load transfer, before drivers are unleashed on our paddock-based autocross track to put their new-found knowledge to thrilling use. And then it’s onto Sonoma Raceway’s world-famous 2.52-mile track, where drivers, bolstered by the expert feedback of our skilled instructors, will discover exactly what their cars can do!
Completion of the Stage 1 course qualifies you to enter Stage 2.
