GT Driver Seminar – August 22nd

Sunday, August 22nd, Autobahn Country Club would like to invite you to participate in the GT Driver Seminar. This event is open to all GT series competitors and will be focused on improving lap times on the South Track.

 This event will be led by Britt Casey Jr. (Chief Instructor of Driver Development) in the back room of the Member Clubhouse. The goal of the GT Driver Seminar is for all drivers to lower their lap times and increase their competitiveness at Autobahn in a seminar format.

 As a group, we will analyze and critique participant video and data to better understand where speed is typically lost and gained at Autobahn. The GT Driver Seminar will include three on-track sessions supplemented by debriefs and presentations to discuss the principal aspects of making fast laps.

 Topics for the GT Driver Seminar Include:

  • Brake Application Styles
  • Minimum Corner Speed
