F1 FAMILIARISATION COURSE
We always use two different types of cars to give people more of an idea as to how the cars can varey.
All the cars we use race each week so they are built to the current specifications.
We try to use one shale car, fitted with leaf springs and one tarmac car, these tend to be fitted with coil over shockers.
The engines vary from 350cui Small Block Chevys to 540cui Big Block Chevys ranging from 430bhp to 0ver 650bhp..
Every car has it's own charicteristics and this is where the skill of the driver comes in. You can not just put your foot to the floor and go.. With over 500bhp you just light the rear tyres and end up spinning. As with any type of motorsport smooth is quick..All our cars use HOOSIER racing tyres.
TWO OF THE CARS READY TO GO
|ONE OF OUR INSTRUCTORS GIVING A GROUP BRIEFING
As part of the course you will be given a short briefing by one of our instructors. This is mainly to cover some of the safety issues and instructions.
Each individual is given another short briefing before they get into the car, this is mainly about the controls and gears. After your first outing you then have a short break where our instructors will advise you of how to improve your technique. It is then time to get back out and try again.
At every driver training day we have held every single person has drastically improved after instruction from one of our instructors.
AFTER THE BRIEFING IT'S TIME TO GO.
