Student drivers will be teamed-up with Mid-Ohio Region instructors. This is an excellent time to learn more about your car and enhance your driving skills.

This is not a racing school. It’s an opportunity to drive your car in a fun, safe, learning environment. Best of all, you’ll get to meet and socialize with a wide array of enthusiasts anxious to challenge their skill and knowledge.

Classroom Instruction

Comprehensive classroom sessions cover many of the basic concepts that are the foundation for high performance driving. Topics include car prep, driving position, attitude, vision, weight transfer, tire adhesion and cornering techniques.

On-Track Driving

Students will drive the track at speed during multiple 20-30 minute sessions with an instructor riding along providing guidance. This allows students to enhance car control skills by applying and practicing the techniques discussed in class. Run groups are established to allow students to run laps with other drivers of similar experience. Passing is only allowed on designated sections of the course, and under controlled circumstances, making for a very safe environment.
