HPDE Instructing During
May 20th 8:30pm EST/5:30pm PST
Although pandemic restrictions are being relaxed, it seems likely that social distancing will continue in many locations for some time. This prohibits in-car instructing except for people who are already closely connected.
One of the alternative techniques being discussed by the ACNA Performance Driver Education Committee is lead-follow – the process of an instructor driving a lead car to demonstrate the driving line with one or more cars following, along with the timing and location of various elements (when to brake, turn-in, begin acceleration, etc.). It also provides a way for instructors to introduce students to the track in a controlled, safe manner.
Lead-Follow Instructing Best Practices
Wednesday May 20th @ 5:30 Pacific, 8:30 Eastern
This webinar answers the question, “What are the best practices used by instructors and organizers who have included Lead-Follow as a training method?” The webinar, put on by the Motorsport Safety Foundation, is hosted by Ross Bentley, and features Bill Wade of the BMW CCA, and David Ray of HOD. The session will be one-hour in length and you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions.
