”Autobahn Series” Presented by Skip Barber

Wednesday, August 29, 2007


Skip Barber returns to Autobahn Country Club starting September 21 for the ‘‘Autobahn Series by Skip Barber,’’ a schedule of events featuring our best Racing and Driving School instruction at one of the best new road courses in North America, Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Ill.

MX-5 Cup Three Day Racing School – $4,295
September 21-23

The first and only racing school in North America in which students — no experience needed — are learning the art and science of racecar driving in the very same car as is used in a professional racing series: The SCCA Pro Racing Sirius Satellite Radio Mazda MX-5 Cup. Like the successful formula-car three day school, the MX-5 Cup Racing School emphasizes track time combined with the best, most experienced instructor corps in the industry. Each day begins with a short classroom ‘‘chalk talk,’’ then you’re on the race track. What you can expect:

Day 1: Intense series of slalom, braking & downshifting exercises with special attention on double-clutch/heel-and-toe downshifting

Day 2: Series of high-speed lapping sessions combined with racing theory & advanced braking techniques

Day 3: Track drills in drafting, passing & racing in the rain; double-file race starts & single-file restarts

One-Day High Performance Driving School – $1,295
September 21 & October 12

The full-day program will begin with a classroom discussion of vehicle dynamics. From there the twin-turbo BMW 335i becomes the classroom as Skip Barber’s instructors take you through a high-octane mix of car control, vehicle dynamics and autocross exercises. The day culminates with lead/follow lapping sessions in the 335i on the 1.46 mile, 9-turn Autobahn Country Club North Course.

Two-Day High Performance Driving School – $2,595
September 22-23 & October 13-14

Modeled on our One-Day High Performance Driving School, the Two-Day expands on the One-Day programs mix of car control, vehicle dynamics and autocross exercises. More instruction, more seat time and more track time in the BMW 335i are the order of the day.

Seating is limited. Please call 800-221-1131 to reserve your seat, or go to skipbarberoldsite.561local.comeSales for online reservations.
