Each year the Golden Gate Region runs an Autocross school. It is designed for beginners or people who have autocrossed only a few times. If you have ever wondered what it is like to experience driving your Porsche on the edge (but safely in control) then this is for you. This is a good safe place for drivers to learn about the handling of their Porsche. The school will be held on the large North runway area of the old Alameda Naval Air Station.
The day begins at 7:30 AM with registration, tech’ing of cars, and then a driver’s meeting at 8:15. Students will walk the course with their morning instructors. After that, students will be driving on skidpads in order to learn the feel of an oversteering and an understeering car. It is a lot of fun!!
The day will proceed with students running the Autocross course with their instructors, while half of the students learn to work the course. After the lunch break we continue to run cars in hour sessions until 5 PM. It is truly a fun day with lots of learning.
One of the best parts is that students get a few rides in their instructor’s car. We try as best we can, to have instructors that have had experience with cars similar to the students. You will also get a different instructor in the morning and afternoon. The course will be extended and used for the regular autocross the following day, which of course students are encouraged to attend!
