Who's interested in a track school???

For those of you inquiring and interested in attending a great driving school for the 2008 season.. here is some information on one of the best local (1-day) schools around. They are all held at Mosport DDT (Driver Development Track) on the dates listed below. Each school includes 1-on-1 instructional guidance in your own private car from an experienced instructor sitting in the passenger seat during the on-track lapping. Classroom sessions help with driving theory and skidpad exercises are included to familiarize students with accident avoidance manoeuvres both wet & dry. Lunch is also included.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _____________________________________
Dear Friends and Motoring Enthusiasts,

Just a friendly reminder that our first event of 2008 is only 2 weeks away!
Spots are available and the weather forecast is calling for a warm 12 degrees Celsius and sunny skies.

Here are the dates for our 2008 season:
1) Friday April 11th CANCELLED
2) Friday May 2nd
3) Tuesday July 1st
4) Friday August 1st

The HANSON International Advanced Driving School puts you on the track with experienced instructors who share your passion for a unique driving experience. Through our in-depth classroom and personal in-car instructions you will learn how to master the skills necessary to handle your car. For those of you that are experienced at these sorts of events, we do offer an advanced group with the provision for solo lapping.

During the day you will learn various driving techniques, vehicle dynamics, as well as discovering the limits of vehicle adhesion.
Although the setting is a race track, the HANSON International Advanced Driving School is not a racing school.

If you plan on registering, please email EMPOWERD randy.sparre@gmail.com for the attachments (listed below), complete all the forms and forward them to the HANSON International Advanced Driving School.

Attachments will include:
1) HANSON International Advanced Driving School Registration Form
2) Information Package
3) Drivers’ Release Waiver

Students are accepted on a first come first serve basis … space is limited.

COST: $250.00

For further information please contact us.


Sincerely,

Peter Hanson

you learn more in your own car, that's what your used to. No good if you learn the handling limits of an E46 M3, then jump into your 318i and expect it to react the same in an accident situation.
