Intro to Performance Driving ($400 / driver)
If you have ever wanted to learn how to improve your driving skills and get the most out of your car, then you have found the right place. Here at Harris Hill Road, we offer two hour school to students of all track driving experience levels who want to learn more about how to drive on a race track. These are also a great introduction to the track for anyone interested in membership.
Each two hour session will be personalized to help you meet your specific goals. If you have never driven on a track before, we will begin in the classroom where we will discuss the theory and concepts behind how driving on the track differs from driving on the street. You will learn how to efficiently manage your tires' traction, as well as the skills that will get your speed up on the track quickly.
Following the classroom session we will start to put your newfound knowledge to the test on the track with lead-follows and then put an instructor in your right seat. This is when you will begin to discover just how amazing your car can be.
Once it's all starting to come together, we will head back to the classroom to discuss any questions that you might have and work on some finer points. From there we head back out on track.
The beauty of this program is that it is the quickest way to learn how to drive your car on a track. Unlike other places where you may be grouped in with others, our instruction will be tailored to you, and you won't have to spend a whole weekend out of town at a track. The track is also a good venue to discover your car's abilities and practice your skills than the street, because it is a controlled environment. Your instructor will work hard to make sure that you and your car leave happy, and ready to come back. You will find that by driving your car on the track you will gain an entirely new appreciation for what it can do and that your driving skills, even on the street, will improve dramatically.
If you would like to come in a group, we can easily accommodate you. Give us a call or send us an email and we can work with you to come up with the perfect experience.
