safety is of paramount importance to us. It starts with
the obvious, with thorough, comprehensive race prep
and rigorous inspection procedures. It also means making
you comfortable in the car, both from an issue of fitment
and of driver development. Your car should be like an
extension of you, responding to your inputs in a safe,
linear fashion. We want your interface with the car
to be optimal, whether it requires changing the motion
of the shifter, reducing the clutch pedal effort or
giving you extra clearance in the cockpit. You simply
cannot perform your best if you are not comfortable
in the car.
the preparation and fitment process is complete, the
fun begins. Track time is precious, and we want you
to make the most of it. Prior to the event, we will
provide you with a course map and any information we
can about the nuances of this track. Upon your arrival
you will find everything ready to go. Your car is fully
prepped, fueled, and properly geared for this track.
Your driver gear is waiting in the trailer and our support
team is ready to meet your needs. All you need to do
is focus on your driving.

support, both car to car and crew to car, allow us to
observe your driving and offer whatever level of input
you desire. VP also provides complete test driving and
set-up services with an FIA licensed driver on staff.
you are in the car, every lap you turn is timed
and can be relayed to you via radio. After your
session, we can discuss our progress and what
changes, if any, are needed to the car. In between
sessions, checklists are completed to consistently
prepare your car for the next session and note
any changes for inclusion in our permanent records.
We build and maintain a file containing all the
pertinent data to your car, as well as all your
lap times and results sheets.
and testing helps develop our relationship with
our drivers. On race day, communication via the
available cockpit radio allows us to relay vital
information: lap time, field position, time interval
to next competitor, on-track hazards, and more.
We can advise race craft and driving strategy
allowing you to make the most of traffic and passing
opportunities while remaining safe at all times.
Perhaps the most important service I can render
you is peace of mind: that calm, comfortable confidence
that comes naturally when you know you have equipment
and support staff you can rely upon without question.
