Track Experience

Track Experience, (TE) is a great way to get qualified. The Track Experience instruction program provides an instructional environment for drivers who simply want learn or improve their driving skills and increase their enjoyment of driving their vehicle. True to the “run what ya brung” adage, all it takes to be a part is your street car, a valid license and a helmet.

TE events are about you, the driver. Plenty of seat time, plenty of individual instruction and a ton of driving exercises make up a Track Experience; all of which is designed to educate you and make you more confident behind the wheel, both on the track and on the street.

Participants receive a solid blend of driving instruction, ranging from the classroom to in-car training to “follow me” drills. A wide range of topics are discussed and shown at a TE, including: following a “racing line”, passing zones, Safe Track techniques and other general driving skills. Of course, each driver receives feedback from his or her instructor at the end of each lesson.
