Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 1, 2010
Chin Motorsports, the leading provider of non-competition track events for sports car enthusiasts, today announced additional 2010 Road Atlanta track days for their HPDE schedule. Sometimes called High Performance Driver Education (HPDE), "track days" offer entry-level drivers an opportunity to drive on some of North America's most renowned race tracks, while also delivering quality track time for intermediate and expert level drivers.
The additional 2010 Road Atlanta track days will occur on July 24 and 25. The full Chin Motorsports HPDE Track Schedule is as follows:

"Chin Motorsports is pleased to add an additional weekend of Road Atlanta track days to our HPDE schedule," said Dr. Wei-Shen Chin, president of Chin Motorsports. "Because the legendary Road Atlanta circuit is centrally located for our members and a challenging and fun course to drive, those dates are some of the most in-demand on our calendar."
During a Chin Motorsports track day event, 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 admire the display of the wide variety of cars and marques that are present at each event.
"Chin Motorsports members range from entry level drivers all the way to professional racers," said Mark Hicks, general manager of Chin Motorsports. "In fact, a full 15% of the drivers in the Rolex 24 and Continental Tire races this past weekend are also Chin members. Adding additional Road Atlanta track days furthers our promise of 'More Tracks, More Track Time' to our members all across the driving experience spectrum."
Drivers may register for events at the Chin Motorsports web site at ChinMotorsports.com. Chin plans to add additional venues and dates to the 2010 HPDE track schedule, so drivers may also check the web site in the coming months for additional tracks and dates. Chin members will be treated to a new, more robust web site in the near future as well.
