I'm really wondering if anybody has been to this and what should I expect to learn in class and in the car.

Will I learn how to heel/toe shift?? that would be cool!

Will I learn about when to brake going into a corner, and when to shift and hit the gas?

I'm REALLY looking forward to this, but it's nothing I had planned on doing in the near future.

If you are from the Toronto area you may have seen the contest in the Star. I was one of 10 people that won a pair of passes to this at Shannonville.

Been to an Audi school. Can't imagine much difference.


Yes.


Just wear good shoes, do what the instructors say, and don't treat the driving area like a race-track. Or they will ask you to leave.

Actually it starts at 8:30 a.m. and runs till mid afternoon.

I just found remembered that I, and the other 9 winners, cna win another prize of a 1 day course running with formula 2000 cars. Too bad I'm way to big to use it if I win.

By the way it's $1000 per person for this class. If that gives you any idea of how good it is.

Did you feel like a much better driver when you left that afternoon Garrett?

Just saw thar Garret posted, must have been seconds before me.

Should be fun regardless.....:D

$1000.00 is not bad if you use their cars.

I presume they would want a credit card to have to charge the insurance deductible to in event of a wreck.
