All The Details
So you're a Grad of our 3-day school and you absolutely loved racing against your coach and the other students, but you find multi-day events too long and the price too steep...
Primarily designed for the racer who doesn't have a lot of time to spare, appreciates the advantage of "arrive and drive" racing and doesn't want the stress of running for points
Two coached practice lapping sessions (each session is a full 20 minutes from the green until the checkered with transponder timing and a corner-by-corner critique done one-on-one with your coach after every session) are followed by a 20 minute qualifying session and a 14-lap race with podium celebration!
Damage responsibility is limited to only $3500 CDN and the entry fee is only $1795 CDN! All this in our NEW Van Diemen Formula Cars!
|Lapping (20 min. session 1)|
|Lapping (20 min. session 2)|
|Qualify for Race (20 min.)|
|Race (14 laps)|
After a re-familiarization class, the Instructors will take you on a track drive-around in preparation for your first of two lapping sessions. At the end of each lapping session, the instructors will provide personal corner-by-corner critiquing. Your qualifying session is followed by critiquing tips, the race and then the podium celebration!

Should a race car be damaged, drivers are only responsible for up to $3500 CDN in any single incident. Considering it is only fair that drivers have this minor amount 'on the line'. This is really a bonus! Consider that the next time you get in a race car, you may not enjoy this consideration and be accountable for the entire cost of the race car!
Compare other schools. Remember, the safety of the track is an integral function of the probability of a crash and the extent of damage. Compare facilities! Compare walls and guardrails! There is no driver damage responsibility for damage clearly resulting from mechanical failure!
Wheels Off Fines
While there are many advantages to a driver development track that doesn't contain the 120 mph sweepers, walls & guardrails of Pro Tracks, one of the deterrents can be the comfort / safety level. Some of the more aggressive drivers may feel comfortable with exceeding their capabilities, and thus they may slide off the track.
These seemingly innocent slides through the dirt & rocks eventually require additional maintenance. For 17 years it's been our philosophy that the clean drivers shouldn't share in the cost of this unnecessary / extra maintenance. Thus, only the drivers who choose to exceed their capabilities & skid all 4 wheels off the track are asked to pay $100 CDN towards the maintaining of the fleet.
Please note that several of our courses have no wheels off fines applicable.
