High Performance Road Car Programs
Did you ever wish you could find out how fast your car can go without incurring the risks associated with high speed driving on public roads?
Have you, your staff or family ever wanted to learn and practice proven high performance driving techniques in your own car in a safe environment?
Whatever your road car driving needs Allen Berg Racing Schools can provide a solution! ABRS offers high permance road car programs in Edmonton and Calgary.
$250 + GST (Cdn)
ABRS can provide you with the opportunity to learn how to drive your road car on a racetrack, using the same proven techniques used in our Formula Car programs. Open to all licensed vehicles and to drivers of all experience levels, one week prior to your event we provide you with a safety checklist to ensure that your vehicle is ready for the track.
This half day program includes approximately one hour of classroom time covering the fundamentals of vehicle dynamics and driving techniques associated with high performance driving. We follow this with on track exercises to practice these new techniques, leading to controlled lapping exercises in which you will be accompanied by our experienced ABRS instructor team, culminating in an instructor supervised open lapping session.
We provide refreshments and can provide you with an approved closed face racing helmet. Mechanical advice is from our onsite ABRS Technical Staff.
All techniques are applicable to driving on the street. After taking this program you will be a better road car driver.
Graduates of this program can participate in all of our Advanced Road Car Lapping Sessions which are usually scheduled immediately following this program.

This program is available to graduates of our Introductory Road Car Lapping Program as well as grads of our Formula Car programs and drivers whom have participated in similar programs elsewhere.
These afternoon and evening sessions are typically scheduled following our Introductory Lapping Program and consist of supervised, controlled open lapping sessions, where you have the opportunity to push your car and yourself to the limit with instruction available to you at all times.
One week prior to your event we provide you with a safety checklist to ensure that your vehicle is ready for the track. Upon arrival at the track you will sign in and (if necessary) pick up your helmet. We hold a drivers classroom briefing to cover safety protocols, passing procedures and flags. Students are divided into two groups depending on experience levels and car performance, then it’s on to the track!
As roadcars are not designed for sustained track running, each group takes to the track in alternating 20 minute sessions, giving sufficient time for cooling of essential components (engine, transmission, brakes, tires) between sessions. During your down time you may be consulted individually or in group by our instructors providing tips and feedback on your driving.
During these events the track is staffed by instructors and corner workers that have radio communication and flagging to ensure maximum safety standards at all times.
We provide refreshments, and mechanical advice from our ABRS Technical Staff if necessary.
As you get plenty of track time make sure you arrive with a full fuel tank!
