LAKEVILLE, Conn. (PRWEB) December 3, 2007
Thanks to the program, gift recipients can sharpen their driving skills or live out that racing dream, with the excitement and safety of a Skip Barber racing class.
From "Active" Safe Driving to High Performance Racing
Skip Barber Racing and Driving Schools are the leader in high performance driving instruction. Skip Barber instructors train leading race drivers - and turn everyday people into better, safer drivers.
A Skip Barber Driving School teaches the foundations of "active" safe driving--techniques that range from threshold braking and accident avoidance, to recovery from skids and hydroplaning on rain-soaked or slippery winter roads. Drivers emerge with improved skills and more confidence. Course are designed for experienced highway drivers, and for teens who need the real-world skills and experience that are not always taught in ordinary drivers ed.
Skip Barber Racing and Driving Schools also offer high-performance training programs. Participants get to drive high-performance touring and sports cars such as BMW M3s and Porsche 911s, and even Skip Barber-built "formula" racing cars, around the track and in timed Autocross sessions.
Skip Barber Racing and Driving Schools provides these programs in exciting destinations. Courses are offered at more than 20 race tracks in North America, many located in beautiful resort locations and near major metropolitan areas.
