Want to know how good you are at driving? Where does your driving technique reach perfection and where do you still have potential?

Why 1: 1 personal coaching?

During "Be a race driver" training, your coach always sits in the passenger seat and immediately sees what is happening. During the day, you will exchange positions several times and, in addition to driving the reference lap, the coach will also show you skills that can be only difficult described in words.
This way, your learning progress is significantly faster and more effective than with regular group training.

Data analysis - an absolute must!

All coached laps are recorded by telemetry with video and data recording. You will see so beautifully in which passages you have what potential and where you are already going to the edge. This makes coaching even more efficient and safer. You will take home a review and possibly a set of data from your ride. So you will be able to walk in depth to what you experienced during coaching and watch your laps on video.

You don't have to. We will be happy to welcome you as a newcomer and help you with the first steps when driving around the circuit. At each of our trackday events there is a contingent of our coaches, ready to take care of you.

 

How to prepare a car for the first trackday event?

Not specifically, but it is necessary to keep the car clean and in good technical condition. We recommend checking all fluids, brake discs, pads and tires. Don't forget the towing eye at home! We recommend coming with a fully refueled car.

 

Which tires to choose?

The choice of tires is an essential and limiting factor. For the first trackday in life or occasional driving, original road tires are enough.

For an more sporty driving, of course, semislick or slick tires are more suitable, which can transmit higher lateral forces and the car "holds" better.

 

Tire pressure ?

Within the sporty driving on the track, your tires will get warm up and your pressure will increase. This reduces the area of ​​the tire that is in contact with the road and the car loses grip. The tire also wears out faster. To prevent this, we must constantly monitor and adjust the pressure. Follow the recommended values ​​on the label of your car. For standard tires we must not exceed the value specified for the loaded vehicle, for semislick tires the key values ​​are for a less loaded vehicle. Our mechanics will help with pressure measurement, or you can measure the pressure with your own pressure gauge. We also have digital sports pressure gauges for sale at the event. Don't forget to refill the pressure after the event. By street driving, the tire pressure drops again and you could go home on underinflated tires.

 

Will my standart street car last a day on the track?

yes, if it is in good technical condition. We also recommend letting the car exhale after a few laps / minutes on the track Automotodrom Brno, Autodrom Most, Slovakiaring Nordschleife, Spa and all other circuits of your choice and cool it down by slowly driving into the pits. In case of any doubts, we always have service point on site and we will check your car.

 

Does my car remain insured during the event?

Our trackday events are sports trainings focused on driver safety. They are not organized in order to achieve the highest speed or the best time. With many insurance companies, your insurance and comprehensive coverage are maintained in full. But  please ask your insurence company.

 

If my insurance does not apply on track, can I insure my car separately?

Yes, we can arrange special insurance for the race track on individual request.

 

Can I take an guest, another driver or children on the track, who can also go on the track?

Yes, we have booking options for other drivers or guests, see. paragraph "Complete prices". Children from the age of 16 are allowed to enter the track as co-drivers if the parent, as the driver of the car, assumes responsibility for this. You will receive the necessary documents at the accreditation.

 

Does my vehicle need to be registered and have a license plate in order to run on the track?

It doesn't have to. We organize our trackday events for vehicles with and without license plates. Exceptions are events at the Nürburgring, where only cars with license plates and tires approved for road use are permitted.

 

Do I need a helmet and racing overall to participate in the event?

Helmet is mandatory at our events, overalls recommended. You can rent helmets from us in limited quantities (fee 15 € / day), or even buy them (approx. 199 € without VAT).

 

Can I book the individual 1: 1 coaching during the trackday?

Basically yes. However, most coaching units are always booked in advance. To be sure, we recommend that you book the required coaching capacity with the coach in advance.

 

Can I rent your sports car during the trackday?

Yes. But as with coaching, it is better to book a car in advance to be sure to get it.

 

Are there noise limits on some tracks?

Yes, some of the tracks have limited noise quotas. E.g. Nürburgring 130dB. Restrictions for particularly noisy cars also apply to Most and Spa Francorchamps. So far, it has never happened during our events that we have to park a car due to excessive noise.

 

OPEN PITLANE and Groups A / B - what's the difference?

Open Pitlane mode is all-day free driving without dividing into groups.

Driving in groups A and B (always a maximum of two groups) is required on circuits with low capacity.

The divisding into groups takes place according to the car and the level of experience. Thanks to this, the groups are homogeneous and you will enjoy your ride more. When group riding, each group usually has 8x 30 min. driving, which is more than enough for a serial or modified car and for your concentration.

 

 

Can I give someone a gift for the participation in a trackday event or a taxi ride?

Yes, we will prepare a gift voucher with the selected service for you. You can also donate personal coaching, a taxi ride with our instructor or your own gift ride in one of our racing or sports cars.

 

I don't have supersport, but I would like to participate. What cars drive to your events?

t is not a condition to have a super sports car. What is important is the desire to participate and have your car in good technical condition. A whole range of cars take part in our events on Automotodrom Brno, Autodrom Most, Slovakiaring Nordschleife, Spa and all other circuits of your choice - for example Porsche GT3, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, AMG Mercedes GTR, AMG A35, AMG A45, BMW M2, M3, M4, Nissan GTR, Ford Mustang, Ford Focs, Toyota Supra, Honda Civic, BMW 340i, Abarth, Lotus Exige, Tesla, BMW X4 M, Dodge, Corvette atd.

 

Can I also drive my own race car?

Yes you can, if you respect the trackday rules of our events.

 

I have a new car and I'm afraid of a lot of traffic on the track. Is there a risk of a collision, for example?

We organize our events under clear safety rules. If someone doesn't follow them, we'll take them off the track and explain once again that it's a trackday and not a race.
At our events, we pay attention to the limited number of cars on the track so that each participant has enough space for their ride. Thanks to the amount of time devoted to driving, you can also determine when you will enter the track when the track is empty.
