“Look ahead, but also THINK ahead. Don’t let the track ‘surprise you’ – anticipate, plan, execute!” – Ben Przekop
After buying a Porsche 911 in 2003, Ben decided to take a high-performance driving course, having heard horror stories about that car’s “lift-off oversteer.” He caught the bug and did a full year of driving events in the Porsche Club of America. Over the past 18 years he’s driving more than 10,000 miles on ten different tracks around the USA.
Atlanta Motorsports Park, Barber Motorsports Park, Carolina Motorsports Park, Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, Pacific Raceways, Portland, International Raceway, Ridge Motorsports Park, Roebling Road Raceway Track, Sebring International Raceway, and Virginia International Raceway.
Ben was invited to become a PCA Nationally Certified Instructor in 2006. Since then he’s instructed hundreds of students, in PCA, BMWCCA, and ProFormance events. He enjoys instructing even more than driving on the track himself, finding it extremely rewarding to see someone progress from a total novice to an accomplished, safe and fast driver.
