Pocono - Car Control Clinic
The Car Control Clinic is one of several specialty programs designed for advanced students. The goal is simple, we want you to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. You will practice car control and line correction techniques to a point where driver response to threatening situations is more automatic and methodical.
Car control is the art of maintaining control of a car when it has exceeded its threshold of grip, either by design or mistake. This applies to cornering grip, acceleration grip and braking grip.
Without this type of program drivers are left to their own devices to not only learn the art of car control but to build experience and a comfort zone. This often takes multiple “moments” on track, usually at high speed, and generally in a slight panic.
This Roos program is designed to provide nearly constant practice with multiple “moments” in a safe, low speed environment. The extensive use of our patented slide cars and other tools facilitate learning and practice in a “real environment.” We teach on the race track, not on an artificial, watered down, skid pad.
Slide cars and race cars will be used on both tightened and full courses. A special competition will be held at the end of the day as an extra incentive.
F-2000 Race Car
It doesn’t get more real than this! When you enroll in one of our road racing programs, you’ll be strapped into a real 150 hp Formula 2000 race car. When properly driven, our cars will accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds, reach 130mph in the draft, pull up to 2g’s in the corners, and stop on a dime.
The reclined seating position, open cockpit, and Indy-style body work provide you with a unique experience. Your view of the track mimics what the pros see when they are battling it out, head-to-head, on TV. Wide tires and front and rear wings make sure your butt is firmly glued to the track as you rocket around, lap after lap.
Safety, of course, is our highest priority. Our cars have been designed and engineered to be among the safest in the industry. The body panels are form-fitted to a stiff chassis and welded steel roll cage to ensure our drivers experience the fastest, safest laps of their lives.
