“When people want to learn to drive their cars fast in a safe and fun environment, they turn to Chin Motorsports,” said Dr. Wei-Shen Chin, president of Chin Motorsports. “From our first event in 1999, our mission has been to provide a high-quality driving experience for all levels of enthusiasts, from the novice who is getting on track for the first time to the veteran driver with hundreds of hours of high performance lapping. Our 2012 track day schedule provides more opportunities than ever for our clients to enjoy their vehicles and experience the camaraderie of the HPDE hobby.”

Entry-level drivers are paired with expert instructors for one-on-one advanced driver coaching. In-car instruction is provided while the driver pilots their own car around laps of some of America's greatest road courses. As Novices progress during an event, instructors will introduce more advanced driving techniques such as threshold braking and heel-toe shifting. Sessions rotate between Novice drivers with instructors, Intermediate solo drivers and Advanced solo drivers. A longer “happy hour” session frequently ends each day. In addition, many non-drivers attend Chin Motorsports events simply to appreciate the wide variety of cars and marques that are present at each event.

“When we formulate our HPDE track days schedule, it really comes down to fulfilling our motto: 'More Tracks, More Track Time',” said Mark Hicks, general manager of Chin Motorsports. “With our 2012 HPDE events, Chin Motorsports clients will experience the most on-track driving time of any club, and can choose from more quality venues and tracks than are offered by any club.”
