High Performance Driving School in the area?

Post by Chris_5.0 on Tue Jul 03, 2012 4:18 pm

Hey Guys,

I'm looking into taking a day course with a High Performance Driving School just to polish up on some skills, and of course learn techniques that could possibly save my life in the future if I get myself into some sort of pickle.

Does anyone know of, or recommend any schools in the area? Preferably a school with their own cars. Any comments/feedback would be helpful.

Thanks!
-Chris

Alright, I was thinking somewhere between $500 and $800. That possible, or am I crazy?

I want more than just drift lessons. I want to be put in adverse conditions at high speeds and be able to react correctly to them. (Not overcorrecting by instinct, etc.) Only looking to better my skills here.

Nope I volunteer Mike for everything... like helping me build a shed... helping people learn how to drive... helping me eat a Firey Hawaiian pizza, or spending ungodly amounts of money when having fun...

Mike's a pro...

Try Summit Point, there used to be a school there, but i don't think that is what you have in mind.

Drifting is a blast but when I learned in the early nineties in Japan it was just a street thing. A lot of things have changed since those days, mainly H/P to the rear tires! I'd like to do that stuff again but be my luck I'd wrinkle some crap up! Sorry for cussing
