Driver Development Clinic
We have an incredible opportunity to bring professional driver/Indy Car driver Jay Howard to Briggs & Stratton Raceway Park for a driver clinic. For the several years, Jay has been working with cadet drivers to shifter drivers with amazing results. At this time, we are trying to determine how many people would be interested in this opportunity. Jay will complete track walks with the group, discuss correct entry-exit of each corner, review braking and passing principles, and critique each participant's driving through several practice sessions. The clinic will be a one day class at a cost of $75 per participant. This price may vary slightly based on class sizes.
If interested please contact Kregg at:email@example.com.
