The MINI Performance Motoring School is set to begin in the summer of 2013, courtesy of MINI USA and Miles Ahead, and we’re excited to let you know that Pippa will be joining the instructing team. Miles Ahead will conduct this first ever performance driving program to be held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Cars for the program will be MINI John Cooper Works Hardtops.
The MINI Performance Motoring School gives enthusiasts a unique opportunity to learn performance driving skills in an iconic motorsports venue, with performance driving instruction from internationally accomplished professional race car drivers. The program includes exercises for slalom and handling, precision braking, skid control, timed sector runs and instructor-driven hot laps. The John Cooper Works engine is MINI’s performance model, with a 208-hp twin-scroll turbocharged engine paired with technology developed for precision handling and responsiveness, making it the perfect MINI model for this thrilling driving experience.
The one-day program is $995 - class dates are available from June to November 2013 and all participants must be over 18 and have a valid driver’s license.
In addition to the MINI Performance Motoring School, Miles Ahead also runs the MINI Teen Motoring School – a half-day program that gives teenage drivers professional instruction and behind-the-wheel experience in controlling a car in challenging situations. The program is designed specifically to address the disproportionate number of auto collisions and injuries caused by teenage drivers.
