GUIDE TO CLIO CUP
CLIO CUP Racing School focuses on fun, dynamic and safe racing, while developing students with the skill and ability to pursue a racing career or just as a hobby upon their completion of our one or two-day course. While the main objective of the school is to develop driving skill, enhancing the safety skill of every driver is also a prime objective.
The Racing School offers track experience for individuals and groups. All our programs begin with brief classroom sessions, followed by hands-on car control exercises and track racing techniques: racing line, trail and threshold braking, downshifting, turn-in points, apexes and passing in a modified touring car.
During the program, we will not only show you how to maneuver a racing prepared vehicle but also have the chance to drive at a top speed of close to 200km/hr in an international F1-standard race track.
Come share the thrilling programs with us. You may not be Schumacher but you will most definitely experience what it is like to be one.
