Hello track enthusiasts,
Registration has now opened for the AISA Academy taking place May 7-8 2011 at Calabogie Motorsport Park. There will be an evening theory course and 2 days on track where you will complete a practical course of over 300kms.
You will learn all the techniques necessary to make you a proficient and safe driver, whether it be for lapping, Solosport, autocross or roadracing. In the past, most drivers in Touring and GT took schools with our instructors to get their licence, and even now our students take the school because they feel the need to learn the correct basics, have pratical experience and take their driving to a higher level both in safety and in control.
In our school you will provide the car (which makes the most sense since you will learn with the same car you get to drive everyday, easier for applying your new found technique) Don't worry about our track record, as our instructors have a flawless reputation: over 1200 graduates in 11 years, most of them champions and front-runners in Touring, GT, 1600 and Solosport... there has never incurred any serious damage to any students car other than minimal brake wear and tire wear.
We will cover:
-driving in tight groups (vision)
-driving position including body and hand positioning
-heel & toe and downshifting (the right way)
-threshold braking and acceleration and their subtleties
-the ideal racing lines and car control at the limit
-passing (under brakes, acceleration, drafting, etc..)
-physics involved in a (race) car
-mental aspect (racecraft)
-how to listen to and feel your car
-race starts simulations , flags ,security and event officials
Our newly revamped manual is by far the most complete and professional in North America. Our instructors make up the very best and most diverse team ever! (4-5 students per teacher assure you the right ratio for the best results).
