a second per lap would totally be worth going for, is this the new visionsports clinic that Scotty is instructing for?
I doubt i will make it, im almost out of vacation time and am trying to keep on track with the budget to finish out the race season. Plus im not even racing on saturday this weekend, all of my events are on Sunday

VisionSports is no longer part of the Blackhawk days. Scotty is not instructing at this event. The instructors are Shawn Hill, Ron Hix, Dustin Boyd and Jason Farrell. ANY of them can help you drop a couple of seconds, and if you are up for it, a couple of them can run 10s.

I will try to make it to one of these events this year. Over the 4th weekend I learned quite a bit from Jason although he wasnt trying to work with me.

Look forward to working with some of you on Friday.

Just a heads up, the hungrier you are when you show up ... the more you will get out of the day. Bring your A game and let's do this!

I'll be working one on one with those who want to drop a couple a seconds for the weekends races.

Is this something I could benefit from Wink? Not to sure what the structure is. Thanks for any input.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

In my opinion, anyone can benefit from this Dean.

The other instructors and I will work with you individually to address the most needed areas per our individual evaluation of you. In addition, we work one on one with you to ensure you get answers to anything that you want to work on.

The low student to instructor ratio really allows for big progress to be made. But again, it all depends on how hard the student is willing to work.

Dean,

Absolutely! This is tailored to YOUR needs and you can get as much out of it as you want, LITERALLY! Come give it a try, this is the replacement for the school you used to take every month. Hopefully, it will far exceed your expectations, PLUS, you will get one-on-one video coaching as well.
