Coaching Experience: Chris Amon

In 1972, Chris Amon set what is still today the lap record of the Charade circuit, at 167kph – set in what was to be the last time Formula 1 visited the Charade circuit. The Chris Amon Driving Experience is our most intense and complete 1-day driving experience we offer at Classic Racing School, with drivers having the choice between driving the Charade Circuit or the Nogaro circuit.

With 3 hours of track driving (or 2h30 at the Nogaro Circuit) your driving will progress and improve throughout the day thanks to performance-oriented coaching techniques, specific to this 1-day driving program. You will have a coach dedicated specifically to you and another driver throughout the day, with more intricate and detailed coaching time in between driving sessions thanks to timed lap sessions and onboard video analysis, all whilst teaching you performance driving techniques that will help you take your driving to the next level.

The program is designed so that everyone can come away from this experience with a noticeable improvement on their driving techniques as well as extra confidence behind the wheel, and is open to every driving level.

Limited to just 8 drivers.
