The Shannonville Motorsport Park Driving Academy is the ideal place for drivers to learn how to handle their car in a controlled environment.
HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVING SCHOOL (BDC) 2017 SCHEDULE
The Brake Driving Concepts (BDC) program with their highly experienced professional coaches, will show you how to apply the same special driving techniques employed by racers. These techniques will make you a better controlled and confident driver in all weather and road conditions. The smile on your face at the end off the day is just icing on the cake!!
Our program is a one-day event utilizing the Shannonville Motorsport Park facility to ensure a safe environment so that participants can concentrate on the new skills being presented and practise. The day consists of classroom and hands on practice with personal coaching. Participants are required to bring their own car. For more information, go to www.brackdriving.com
Our objective is to provide the every-day driver with the confidence, understanding, and skills to avoid an incident in any weather condition. Drivers will be able to instinctively react to emergency situations, as they will have a practical understanding of how their car will react to evasive manoeuvres and avoid an unpleasant “moment”.
Our coaches have extensive high-performance driving and racing experience. Each has driven thousands of laps on different tracks all over North America (and some in Europe) and several have racing experience at amateur and/or professional levels, in different disciplines. Although we are not teaching race strategy, the coaches have smooth car control skills at a very advanced level.
They are chosen not only for their skill and ability to teach, but for their excellence in attitude and perspective as well. Our instructors offer over 700 years of collective instructional background. The breadth of experience is apparent whether you are in the classroom, performing exercises, or on the track putting it all into practice.
Our instructors bring to the table a great deal of safety-oriented, high-performance driving experience creating a casual, fun and informative day. All of our instructors are extremely safety-conscious. They are instructors first!!!

The Team believes that through education a driver can feel more relaxed, even though they are really more alert. Our approach is easier on the body and mind. With training, the driver will remain alert for longer periods and maintain higher levels of awareness on our challenging roadways and hopefully have learned enough to be able to react instinctively in an emergency situation.

The total distance typically run at our program is 100km. There will be a little extra tire and brake pad wear but it is not substantial and probably not even perceptible. You will likely use most of a tank of gas!
Your car must be in top mechanical condition with fresh brake fluid and a full tank of gas.
Brake fluid is designed to absorb moisture to ensure your brake components do not corrode. This moisture absorption causes the boiling point of the fluid to decline over time and boiling fluid causes an unsafe decline in pressure to your braking system. This results in increased stopping distances in an emergency braking situation.
All manufacturers recommend routine brake fluid flushing though owners often overlook it. We err on the side of safety and ask that your brake fluid be recently flushed.
Approach the Chief Coach with your concern. You will be re-assigned. Don't be shy; all coaches are aware that chemistry can be an issue. Our overall objective is for you to have an informative and pleasant day.
We keep each driving group small, so there are rarely other drivers near you. In the event that another car approaches, there are designated passing zones. The car being passed must give a hand signal to permit the pass. A coach is in your car to ensure safety.
We are often told to "count me in," and are asked to hold, reserve or save a spot; however we cannot do this for scheduling support staff logistics and it would not be fair to those who have submitted a complete application with payment to end up on a waiting list.
Our program is unique, highly regarded, popular, a lot of fun, and very safe. We believe this is due, in part, to the following reasons:
