Once again I am writing to you to inform you of a Road One Performance Driving School. You may have seen earlier post regarding this event. I still have some spaces available.
I have confirmed our first two day, weekend event in mid-September at the Spring Mountain Motorsports Park in Pahrump, Nevada.
The date is Saturday, September 15th and Sunday, September 16th.
This will be a typical Road One event. You will get over 3 hours of track time per day. A maximum of 42 students broken up in to 3 run groups of 14 cars per group, ensures virtually traffic free track time.
Jeff Ireland will once again be our chief driving instructor. We will
also have instructors from VARA, SCCA, BMWCCA, ALMS/GrandAm and the
Porsche Owners Club. Each student will have an instructor available to
them at all times.
We provide 2 nights of hotel, gourmet meals on Saturday and Sunday, refreshments and full safety crews, including Fire & Rescue. All you have to do is show up with your car and a helmet and the rest will be taken care of. This is an all inclusive event.
A few weeks ago, I drove the route, toured the track, and inspected the hotel. All I can say is it will be an amazing weekend! The track is very technical --your car will be in a constant state of transition on this course. The only way achieve speed will be through smoothness and balance. The two days of experience you'll gain learning Pahrump will pay dividends on any track you drive. It was designed and built by its owner, veteran driver Rupert Bragg-Smith, as a teaching track.
You can download an in-car video view of the course at:
Pahrump is a small town with a friendly attitude and low-key casinos. And it's just 45 minutes to the Vegas Strip.
But the real entertainment, as always, is on the track.
Please let me know asap if you would like to attend this inaugural Road One event at Spring Mountain Motorsports Park.
Below you will see a letter from the VP of Toyo Tires comenting on our last event. Just so you know they are not a sponsor of Road One.
ps. please feel free to call me with any questions regarding this event.

Thank you very much for the invitation to the recent driving school.
I wish to compliment you on the very professional mamagement of this driving event. You are obvioulsy very focused on providing the very best service, safety and driving instruction to your customers.
Having attended only BMWCCA driving schools in the past, I could immediately see the big advantage that you offer over other schools:
b)Much more time with qualified instructors.
Not only do you offer a lot of value for the money, but I learned more in one day from your school than I've learned from the last two club schools which were two-day events. You provided more track time in one day than my last two club schools.
Thank you again for the invitation, and I look forward to seeing you again soon.
