Another Season for fresh blood
I am instructing this year so I didn’t bring out a real camera. I took some quick snap shots. This is Group B (Group B is behind me).
For the event I was
suckered volunteered into getting brooms and supplies (spare extinguishers) that were at Whissel Contracting shipping container. Ofcourse, this wouldn’t be a big deal until the organizer looked at the ACR and gave a “WTF” look – “You have a cage in that car?”. To which I answered back – “and you don’t?”.
In the end, I borrowed Super Dave’s 3rd gen Prelude (talk about OG) – what a fun car to drive. I met Jared at Whissel Contracting to grab the keys. To which Jared says, “Hey, I know you, you’re Phil’s kid”. Talk about being a small world. My dad’s owned a ice cream shop and manufactured Ice Cream – Phil’s Ice Cream.
The first day is always about the basics.
- Knowledge transfer
- Car handling basics
- There is less emphasis on driving with greater understanding what driving is
- Lots of different instructors in varied disciplines (some good some bad)
Mark, Taras, and Andy came out to apply for their competition race license.
I forgot to mention also
The school was a lot more personable having people I know take the school. It was interesting to hear everyone’s take on what they learned and what frustrated them.
The second day is about:
- Applied knowledge
- Driving on the track
- Putting some of the knowledge into practice
Keep in mind after the race school. It’s just a first step into driving better. It’s a not a license for speeding… So I’m told 😀
