GHIT 0340: Getting the Most Out of Instruction at a Track Day or HPDE etc.
Track time is a precious commodity. It is often difficult to fit into your schedule, it takes a significant amount to prep for a weekend (both the car and the driver and often simply getting to the track). It is also not free to attend the event. We try to give some examples of what to do and what not to do before an at an event. Also, given this, one of Bill’s obsessions is in getting the absolute most he can from each event, and even every stint, especially for our team and his HPDE students. We use a standard debrief sheet for each event and have fount it to be very helpful and increase the progression of each of our drivers, especially as you progress and improve since you will often be driving without an instructor directly assisting you every stint. So if you are looking at getting the most out of instruction, this may be the podcast for you.
If you have any interest in getting a copy of out sheet, or our track walk/track notes template, please let us know in a podcast review or on our social media, or send us an email at [email protected] and we can share it with you.
(Because Bill has no idea how to link them in the episode notes, lol)
