Much time was spent on the wet skid path which was hugely revealing. The several practice "fire escapes" from your car showed how to best get out in a hurry. There was much more and all was well directed and manned by the very knowledgeable and friendly AROSC instructors/staff.

Just so you'll know, the above comment relates to Race School. We don't do practice starts in TT or Street Performance.

However, this year for the first time, TT students will be getting an introduction into on-track passing. Passing is now a significant part of our TT events so we want our drivers to know how to pass and be passed without losing a lot of time. We also want them to know how to do it safely.
