06 July 2017 Kent, WA – It was two days and two separate classes at the ProFormance Racing School at Pacific Raceways, but the same set of exercises for both. Wednesday saw a mix of cars and drivers with Thursday being women only and their daily drivers.
ProFormance Racing School and its instructors will take you through four exercises, two at each end of the Pacific Raceways property that will teach you what to do in case evasive action is needed when you are behind the wheel.
Two stages run you at 25 mph and two at 50 mph. Who knew that jamming on the brakes would bring a boatload of smiles after doing so. The feeling you get in the seat of your pants telling you what “you” told your car to do “will” teach what to do once you put “input” into the steering wheel.
All this is explained to you in the classroom by Don Kitch then put into practice on track overseen by the instructors and de-briefed by said instructors on what they seen and heard as you go thru each of the exercises. This all before noon then it’s out on the track with an instructor driving your car around the 2.25 mile road course for two laps on track showing you the correct way to complete a lap, then it’s your turn.
Drivers are usually timid at first then as the laps go by the times to lap the track get shorter in time, hence faster speeds and under control. Without a doubt the best bang for the buck you can do for yourself or your child.
Images for the two days are organized into two albums:
