CARS is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our Driving School #2 & our new Time Attack event this Sunday April 22 at the Arima Race Club car park.
The intent of our driving school is to demonstrate to our new drivers the proper technique involved at Solodex. Anyone who may be interested in learning proper race technique can attend the driving school and participate in the practical session after. Similar to our previous Driving School sessions, the day will be split into classroom sessions followed by Q&A, Practicals, Open Course runs and official timed runs.
The last few hours of the event though, will prove to be action packed. We''ll be adding some more excitement to the mix for both drivers and spectators with our Solodex Time Attack! Two separate mirror courses will be set up and two drivers will be able to simultaneously navigate the fast but challenging course. With some drag race-inspired straightaways thrown in, things will be moving even faster! Racing side by side with another driver adds some extra adrenaline rush especially when you see you left him (or her!) in the dust behind you. The extra rush also presents a great opportunity to develop your concentration and discipline for the sport since overly-enthusiastic driving may actually hamper your time. Attached is a preview of what you can expect for this gripping portion of the event.
