HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVING
It’s TECHNIQUE that makes you a faster driver – NOT Technology! We’ll show you the TECHNIQUE of CHAMPIONS!
Our Track School course is an excellent introduction to the world of high performance driving. We will show you the skills and techniques required to be competitive in competitions such as Time Attack, Solo I, Lapping Days or Road Racing. Your instructors are all experienced in the sport of Time Attack (Solo I) or Racing including your Chief Instructor who is a multi time Ontario Solo I Champion, race winner in the Ontario GT Sprints and Canadian Touring Car Championships.
To lap a race track safely and competitively requires skill and technique. Even if you are only interested in Lapping Days at certain tracks, knowing what you are doing can save you from injury, crashes and embarrassment. Lapping Days can be a lot of fun when you understand how to do it properly. Just showing up for a Lapping Day and expecting to run well and be safe is like jumping into a deep pool. You better know what you are doing.
THIS COURSE TEACHES RACING TECHNIQUES required to compete with the best in Time Attack or Race competitions. It is technique that will make you a faster driver and not simply purchasing the latest in performance equipment for your car. We will help you understand and develop technique as well as how to prepare both you and your car for competition.
This full day course (8:30 am to 5:00 pm) consists of easy going classroom sessions alternating with driving exercises throughout the day to allow each student to put into practice new information gleaned from the classroom.
The Classroom Session will dispel many myths and misconceptions regarding racing technique and vehicle knowledge and performance. From the correct way to use all the controls, vision training, how to learn the track, the racing line, heel and toe downshifts, weight transfer, slip angles, preparing for competition and much more, you will be surprised at how much there is to know about competition driving. We’ll also explain threshold braking, tires, skid recovery, how to get involved in competition and much more in these friendly classroom sessions.
The Driving Exercises are all designed to help you learn how to control your vehicle while developing new performance driving skills. You will experience lapping a race track behind a pace car to show you the proper race line. Then you will move on to lapping with an instructor at your own pace and all with one of our highly experienced instructors sitting with you to guide you and give you instant feedback. You will learn how to get the most out of your car on the race track under safe and controlled conditions.
Our Track Schools are run in conjunction with a well organized Lapping Day. Students and “Experienced Lappers” have their own dedicated track sessions. Any participants of our Lapping days must have taken our Track School or a recognized equivalent.
Safety is always our number one concern. At our Track Schools, you will learn the “Secrets of Champions” with ILR’s highly qualified, experienced and friendly instructors.

Here is one of t he typical Track School testimonials we receive from our students:
Hi Ian, I would just like to thank you and your instructors for running a first class school at Mosport, last weekend.
The drive from Sudbury was worth it!
I will be back at a later date and will be in touch re the ice school in 2013.
A special thanks to Cam and Steve (Stephen? ) for pushing me safely beyond my previous comfort levels.
It was comforting to know and see these trainers in their own cars showcasing their individual abilities, truly impressive!.
Again, THANK YOU!
