The performance pathway to the exciting world of motorsports

Offering comprehensive 1-Day and 2-Day road racing classes, the Podium Club Racing Academy is designed to accommodate individuals with varying skill levels – from beginners seeking an introduction to the sport to intermediate and advanced drivers looking to refine their expertise. This academy is not just about mastering the mechanics of driving; it is a transformative experience where participants learn the art of harmonizing with their vehicles.

 

Through expert guidance and hands-on experience, students discover how to extract the utmost performance from both themselves and any vehicle they drive.
