The Advanced Driving Artstm Class is designed for licensed drivers of all ages to learn life-saving skills behind the wheel in a fun and exciting environment. Students will learn basic vehicle physics and dynamics, how these behaviors affect the car; skid prevention and recovery through the use of our Skid Car; accident avoidance maneuvers and more.
This is a hands on course where students learn concepts in a classroom setting and then practice them in their own cars under direct supervision of a trained instructor. The handling and accident avoidance portions of the class, students drive on a challenging, low-risk, low-speed and highly technical driving range. This course is designed to bring the car to the limits of its capabilities at very low speeds so that the student can learn how their car will behave in an emergency situation.
Our Skid car is used to teach threshold braking, understeer, oversteer and spin recovery. Through the use of our skid car we can induce these skids and events at very low speeds without the need for gimmicks like watered down concrete or dangerous casters mounted in place of the rear wheels. The student drives and the instructor is able to control how much traction is available to the car at any given time. The instructor can bring the vehicle back to full traction at any time.
This fun course is a full 8-hours with a 1-hour break for lunch. Because of insurance regulations, all students under 18 MUST have a parent or guardian attend the course with them.
