The 2O4F Race School

Here is the offical race school thread, here is what we have to office:  

Post up here or contact one of our instructors directly to schedule a session. It's bette if we can plan ahead of time a little.

If you would like to have a session with Cotter, simply shoot him a meesage on xbl. Or if you don't see him online, just send him a text or give a call at 615-969-7675.

 

[1] New to Racing:

Suggested Tracks: Suzuka Full, Motegi East, Road America

Cars: Clio RS Spec Build, Mazda MX5, Subaru WRX.

We will begin with some realatively easy and grippy cars, FWD, RWD or AWD.  The focus here will be learning your lines and cornering types.  Emphasis is on control and consistency.

* Zones of a corner

* Apexs

* Lines

* Target Times

* Basic Traffic Management.

* Smoothness = consistency.

* Skid control

* Track awareness

 

[2] Advanced Racer

Suggested Tracks: Silverstone GP, Nurburgring GP and Mugello

Cars: Clio RS, RX7, Exige

Here you'll learn to push your skills to try and gain about 2 seconds per lap! Bringing the car to the edge and keeping it there. 

* Trail Braking, threshold braking, and no brakes!

* Throttle control - how to use it, when to wiggle!

* Weight Transfer - understand what is happening and how to use it

* Traffic Management + Anticipation.

* Power v's Grip Racing and Drive types.

 

[3] Pro Racer

Any Track, any Car

Getting those last tenths are cruel - we'll work with you to achieve those faster times.   This won't be easier and will require lots of seat time as well as a good understanding of the above.

* Intimidating your rival

* Pushing the car to the limit

* Planning your overtake.

* Defensive driving

* Reading the situation

* Keeping your cool

It doesn't matter where you fit into now, we are more than happy to work with you to bring you new skills.  All the above is really just a fancy way of learning how to control a car  and putting some names to the various ways of doing so. 

I'm available usually after 20:30 GMT weekdays and fairly open on weekends :)

BTW, Why is all of your text colored beef? That color is hard to read on a white background for my old eyes.

Not sure where I'd place in that, but I'm usually in the middle of everything else. I just have to shake loose some time to do it!

Sorry, I will just keep it black then.  I work 2-11pm central during the week, so idk what time would be best to practice.  Maybe on the weekend sometime then would be best I would say.

I"m not home through the week until about 9-9:30 ish your time. Tourni may be able to sync up on your schedule more easily.

 

If he doesn't respond here shortly, I'll take you on & we'll get you sorted.

Thanks for the offer mate, much appreciated.

Ideally it sounds like Tourni would be best as his on my timezone but failing that maybe we can sort something out on the weekends as that might make it easier to hook mate.

Yes, definitely. we both have different teaching styles, (tourni explains things much better than I do). So you'll probably learn something different from each of us.

 

Funny that, considering I'm the one who taught him to drive.

Just had my first lesson with Tourni and just wanted to say he really knows his stuff and is a great teacher who knows how to get the information across. 

I came away with a lot of knowledge that I can now take away and practice with and it will hopefully start to show dividends with better and faster times with more consistent driving. So a quick thanks to Tourni for the lesson. I look forward to the next one mate :)

Glad you enjoyed it mate, it was a bit of a long lesson but we got alot of the techniques accross.  You become noticably more confident with the car and smoother, you'll soon seen improvement in your race times and keeping the car on the track more :)

Thanks for the feedback :)
