THREE OAKS, MI (June 10, 2011) – MRP Speed Schools, has announced the return of their popular intensive 2-day karting clinic to be held at Michiana Raceway Park on June 29-30, 2011. The clinic, designed specifically for intermediate to advanced karters, was created to give racers increased mechanical knowledge of their racing karts while also improving their driving skill, race-craft and focus. The two-day program provides more value for the money by combining many lessons from various MRP Speed Schools into one two-day course.
The curriculum will be inclusive of all things not normally covered in introductory courses or shared by competitors. Curriculum will include the following topics:
• Chassis Dynamics and Tuning
• Hands-On Mechanics Course and Training
• Mental & Physical Focus and Preparation
• Driving Techniques and Theory
• Race Craft Theory and Techniques
• Advanced one-on-one driving instruction
• Data Acquisition Analysis (where applicable)
• Rotax Driving technique tips
Marc Miller, a professional race driver/instructor and championship winning kart racer, will be leading the clinic. Miller has won karting championships in WKA, road-racing, oval-karting, shifterkarts and Rotax competitions or series and most recently acts as driver coach, engineer and data acquisition engineer in professional motorsports.
“This is heading in to our third year of these,” said Marc Miller, Advanced Driving Coach and Professional Race Driver. “We continue to fine-tune this course to benefit the intermediate to advanced kart racers as well as their families or regular crew chiefs. We will offer this end of June clinic as well as an August clinic to allow families to capitalize on summer vacation.”
Joining Miller will be Louie Pagano. The 2009 & 2010 Gatorz Rotax Champion has extensive karting experience and is already considered one of the top Senior drivers in competition. More instructors will be added depending on the number of participants. A dinner as well as lunches for each day will be included in the price. An included bonus in the price is the fact the fee includes both driver and their parent/mechanic as the curriculum is designed to educate both on mechanical, mental and communication aspects of karting.
“I have researched several karting schools and clinics and have yet to discover any as in-depth as what we are offering for the price.” continued Miller. “This clinic is specifically intended to develop all aspects of skills including mechanical and mental in additional to racecraft.”
