Exercise 1 “Dynamic Control”
The objective is to complete the circuit without touching the cones. The track will have areas of low grip with the objective of simulating an extreme real life situation. This exercise will allow the trainee to develop reflexes, improve agility and control of the car. This exercise is carried out over one sighting lap and one timed lap.
Location: Paddock area 1 (Track with cones)
Exercise 2 “Drift Control”
This is where you get to test and demonstrate your ability to control the vehicle. The objective is to control the skidding car after forcing the vehicle into a skid.
Location: Drift Pad
Exercise 3 “Moose Test”
A moose test is a test to determine how a certain vehicle acts when the driver evades a suddenly appearing obstacle (such as a moose on the road). This is an excellent exercise that allows you to improve your ability to control the car, in an emergency situation that could occur on the road. Two laps at different speeds.
