$275CAN Expensive but probably the best traveling driving school out there.

This school will be held at Race City on Friday June 16 and Saturday June 17.

I'll be participating Friday and helping out with stuff on Saturday. Hope to see some Celicas there.

If interested, please sign up on www.karelo.com

This is hosted by the Calgary Sports Car Club

Phase 1 runs on both days and phase 2 only runs on Saturday
Details as follows:

Evolution School

Friday Afternoon June 16
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Saturday June 17
9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Race City Motorsports Park
11550 - 68 Street SE Calgary, AB

Phase One -- Skill Building
The "original" Evolution program as developed by the McKamey Autocross School. This first step in the Evolution is where all students start, regardless of experience. Daylong course builds upon students existing skills, while introducing new ideas to improve one’s times. Students both ride and drive with Evolution trained national caliber drivers to learn where they are fast and where they need to improve. Small student teacher ratio of 6:1 insures quality instruction time. Computerized timing provides segment times, which can be compared at various times during the day. Do to some factors such as, weather, segment times may not be available and are beyond our control.

Combined with race proven skills, concepts, and techniques this course will improve the performance of all drivers on both road and track. Even experienced driver’s benefit from the Phase 1 course as a refresher for those things they’ve forgotten over the years or perhaps never learned. No matter what type of car you drive the Phase 1 skills will improve your overall driving abilities.

Note: All students must provide their own two-seat vehicle for the day. Two driver cars are welcome.

Phase Two -- The Metal Edge
Building upon the skills learned in Phase 1, Phase 2 takes the driver into new areas of mental race preparation, allowing the Phase 1 skills to be applied as second nature. Various driving exercises are conducted throughout the day to improve the driver’s visual and mental imaging of the course, resulting in quicker lap times. This course has worked "magic" in reinforcing the importance of Phase 1 skills and transferring those skills to every autocross course you may encounter. The Phase 2 track design is not the same as used in Phase 1 and generally has higher speed sections.

Note: Phase 2 students must first have completed the Phase 1 Program. As in Phase 1, students must provide a two-seat vehicle for the day.

There are so many Elises driving around Calgary ... probably one of the best bangs for your performance buck. There is no forgiveness in the suspension though ..... not a comfortable daily driver for our potholes. :hehe:
