“I’ll be back”
My second event trumped the prior one and is now tops on my list of driving experiences!
My instructor was an excellent instructor. I felt that I accomplished my goals for this session and learned plenty more in addition to that. I was running much faster with a much higher confidence level by my last run today.
Thanks for running a safe and fun organization. I look forward to my next event!
It’s been a little over a year and a half or so since I’ve ran with y’all and from the second I pulled into the track you and your Team welcomed me back into the Drivers Edge track family like I had never left.
Having run with several other DE groups then coming back to run with The Drivers Edge Team I can say there is no comparison. The way you and your Team care and provide the best and pleasurable environment for your drivers to learn in a safe and comfortable track environment is second to none!
Rick Thanks again to you and your Drivers Edge Team for another great track weekend and experience! Looking forward to the next one.
As you are well aware, this was my first time coordinating a race track event. Your patience, professionalism, and humor made my “learning” not only educational, but a lot of fun. And at the event, The Driver’s Edge Team was professional, well organized, and worked with smiles and good humor – all while keeping our guests safe. We couldn’t be happier with our experience, and we thank you for being a valued Gulf States Toyota partner.
Should you have any potential clients looking for a reference, please feel free to provide them with my name and contact information.

Your entire staff was awesome. Congratulations on a fine weekend. I’m looking forward to continuing my learning in the fall.
Oh, and please send report card?
Nelson (instructor) was also very informative and super helpful. He’s a bit quiet but was very willing to answer any questions and also let me ride with him a few times. His subie felt like it was on rails with those tires and rock hard suspension.
Thanks again for everything,
I will definitely be back for future events!!! Thanks again!!!!!
Your red group was as good or better than a bunch of fast drivers as one finds in any of SCCA, NASA’s GTS or ST groups and is a credit to the standards you uphold.
– Will I actually get instruction or will this be just another track day where I’d just run my car and not really learn anything new.
– Lot of people signed up for the weekend, will I actually get time on track, will it be safe, will the organization/execution of the event be well put together or be a cluster
Now that the weekend is behind me, I can unequivocally say that you run one of the finest driver education programs I’ve attended. The event was super organized, everyone was focused on safety and the classroom and on-track instructors were top notch. Best value for the $, bar none.
I came away from the weekend with more awareness of both my strengths and areas for improvement … all while having a blast!
My instructor was fantastic. I don’t know what kind of voodoo you use but somehow you managed to connect me with an instructor who not only could communicate in “my lingo” so I understood what I needed to do, his personality was perfect for me to learn the rather complex track pretty quickly (20 turns.. good grief). I can’t say enough.
All this with just a couple of questions on friday night. like I said, voodoo magic.
Wrapping up, I learned a lot about myself and my Audi R8 this past weekend. It’s made me a better and safer driver (and hopefully, a tad faster). Thank you and your team. You run a class act and hope to see you again in one of your next events.
I was in the green group. My first time stepping foot on a track, ever!
It was much more than I ever expected. I never in my life drove a car, or sat in someone else’s car taking corner so fast.
It was for the most part scary and an eye opening experience.
I was too tensed up, and didn’t really start to relax and have fun until the last run on Sunday.
Then I started getting more comfortable, and building some confidence, and thisspeed…right up until the moment I went off the track in turn 2.
But I used what I learned in class (looking for an exit strategy) so I went straight off, and didn’t even try to turn the corner until I was clearly off the track.
I did learn a lot of good points in the past 2 days.
Most importantly I feel I learned that I am not as good a driver as I thought I was, and that I have a lot of room for improvement.
Your class was definitely an eye opening experience that I would never have learned on the road by myself.
Thanks for the great instruction and I hope to see you again soon sometime!
I wanted to thank you for a fantastic year of events. It is unbelievable how much I have learned running with you guys this year. I will see you next year, almost certainly for the January event.
You asked for suggestions/comments so here goes.
I have never attended a drivers course like yours before now & these are my perceptions.
I thought the entire event was extremely well planned and executed in very professional manner.
You and your associates kept a great balance between fun and the serious matter of safe competition driving. The tempo was excellent and not too rushed.
Classes were very informative and fun.
Food was great.
Now to my instructor.
Alex was extremely polite and understanding.
He communicated with voice and hand signals what his intentions were.
His suggestions & teaching were easy to understand, brief, & to the point.
Alex’s driving skills were outstanding and I must say, I had the ride of my life with him at the wheel.
I don’t think I have ever had that much fun just sitting in a car seat.
He was gracious enough to take me out in his personal track car.
It was absolutely unbelievable how much performance he could coax out of a Mazda Miata.
I could not keep from laughing when he was catching up with the Porsche’s!
That had to be a gut check for the poor fellow in the Porsche…being reeled in by a Miata!
He is a fine representative of your company.
Ratings: based on 1 to 5 with 5 being the best.
Drivers Edge- Your company is definitely a 5. Everyone did a great job.
Instructor- Just have to give him a 5+ for a stellar performance & excellent instruction.
Track- Excellent facility & layout for a 5.
Student (me)- slow reflexes, poor depth perception, a little forgetful, & a strong will to live combined with low testosterone, 1 to 2.
I look forward to participating in another event in the near future.
I guess the measure of a successful weekend is measured by what was learned. I learned quite a lot. Figured the car out and changed the handling with air pressure and sway bar adjustments. Tried different lines and gained some time. All in all had a great weekend and looking forward to seeing you in November. Have a great week.
You paired Aaron and I up perfectly! He was an amazing instructor and I would love to be paired up with him again when I come back for the JUNE class!
Please send me my report card when you get it done, I would love to see it.
Thanks again for a life changing experience.
Classes were engaging and informative. And Daniel shut down a couple of side conversations which were taking away from class focus. I appreciate that.
My incar instructor Wes provided specific and clear direction, explaining nuances and “why” on each corner. We connected well.
I got paired with Lee for an instructor in my 1st and 3rd sessions which was great. His style of coaching meshed well with me and I feel I was able to learn the track much quicker because of it.
I also found the classroom sessions to actually be valuable.
Additionally, the Sunday morning church service was a good message and a good format.
I had to leave after the 2nd session today, but as I was leaving, Lee approached me and asked if I wanted to move up to Red run group. I unfortunately couldn’t stay, but I would have loved to have done that. Maybe next time?
I definitely would like to run with you guys when you come to Cresson, even though I’m a member there!
That said, could I please get a copy of my evaluation card?
I really look forward to being on track at MSRH in Oct, and enjoying another great Drivers Edge weekend, I know I will come away a better driver for the experience.
Again, thank you for providing such a quality product, the guys that we’d encouraged to come take part all had great times, they all want to do Drivers Edge again.
Learned more than I could have imagined with pointers from all your staff and instructors and has put alot of information into perspective and is helping put other information order.
Is a great group and I’ll be back
It’s hard to pick out a favorite moment from the event, but a place I can begin is the sense of satisfaction I felt throughout the day as I progressed in skill and understanding after each track/class session.
Your style of instruction was extremely effective. Your firm and well articulated messages were the perfect queues; they allowed me to apply feedback while maintaining pace and high focus. If I did what you said, it led to desired results. Being able to control the car and feel what proper technique is in conjunction with the ideas taught in the classroom was fantastic. I can only imagine how it multiplied my progress.
I also want to compliment the other instructions/community. Most everyone I encountered was very friendly and willing to share knowledge. I specifically remember having a great conversation with Peter, asking him what are probably very novice questions. He had so much expertise and was eager to share. I also met Tomi (unsure of spelling, but she drives the black Cayman S with silver accents). We bonded over common car models and she too was very helpful and positive.
Boy am I glad I stayed to ride with an instructor. Jeremy and his RX-7 changed my world. Nothing more needs to be said. He’s a badass.
By my last round on the track with the group, the day had already been deeply fulfilling. Everything else that followed was icing on the cake. Hearing my instructor [you] enthusiastically shout, “Now you’re driving!” after I performed two smooth downshifts and successfully cornered The Diamond’s Edge was a special moment.
Thanks to you and all those involved! The passion is evident.
