19 July 2017 Kent, WA – Summertime and school are in full swing at ProFormance Racing School. Twenty students came to class today for their lessons in what the instructors pass on in four separate exercises.
Yes, it is what owner Don Kitch explains with diagrams and talk while you are sitting on a stool taking it all in. Now with the instructors at your door you are now in a better seat to understand what you just heard in class. The seat of your pants will tell you more of what you are learning, transferring into action what you are told by the instructor as you start and once again a de-brief after going thru the exercise.
Split into two groups of ten each going to both ends of the Pacific Raceways property each having two of the four exercises in the program. This fact also brought the need for extra instructors from the pool that work for Don and his program. Knowing now most of the instructors and every now and then some come and lend a hand when others cannot make it, it is summertime and vacation season after all.
Seeing a new face in the instructor group leads to an enquiry and a need for a mug shot. This mug shot not the typical I have done in the past as guys just stick their face at the camera and say shoot, no big deal. Shooting a female face is a whole new ball game though to my surprise Shannon McGuinness is one of the guys. No need to comb her long dark hair. ”It is what it is” she says and It’s all good. What a nice young lady with a background in PRO-3 racing bringing her smile and experience to pass on to other’s so they may become better drivers themselves. Hope to see her more and learn more of her background in racing and how she came to teaching.
