Driving on a wet racetrack takes a special set of advanced car control skills that can only be developed by experience.
It all began when our chief instructor Don Kitch, Jr. put his vast experience in the subject into a paper entitled “The Art of Racing in the Rain.” It it he made it clear that experience is the main factor in gaining the skills needed to be proficient in high performance and competition driving in the rain. “Get out on a wet race track every time you can” is Don’s byword. The German “rain meister” race car driver Hans Stuck would agree. Stuck was not born one of the finest sports car rain racers in the world: he became one by getting out on a wet race track every time he could.
In the ProFormance Rain Driving Skills clinic you’ll acquire skills the way the rain meister did. You’ll learn how to anticipate what your car will do in every situation in the rain with a set of driving exercises designed to test and develop your skills on a wet racetrack.
