Our Shenandoah Driver School is becoming a favorite for those students who have taken the plunge to give the track a try. We will be running the traditional complement of three student run groups (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced). The Shenandoah Circuit is the newest track at Summit Point Raceway and is known for its interesting layout and technical challenges. The hallmark of the track is a dimensional replica of the famous carussel turn at the Nurburgring featuring 20 degree banking! Driving Shenandoah will make you a better driver on every other track you visit – almost every type of turn is on this track. Beyond great in-car and classroom instruction, we also try to have one of our instructors give a track walk at lunch. This gives students a different perspective on the track and yields additional driving tips that will improve your driving and fun.
This school is generally characterized by smaller run groups giving plenty of open track to all participants. Note also that this is the only school run by the NJ chapter that offers 2 days of skid pad training for all participants. If you truly want to improve your car control skills, skid pad training is a must.
Be sure to visit the NJ chapter’s website for special Shenandoah promotions.
Come on down for a great weekend and a truly fun track.
Note that open face helmets Snell2005 or newer will be accepted for this event.
