What are our client's saying about Pro Drive's Programs
Thanks for a fun day at the track. Chris was a great instructor. Everything was professional with a great combination of safety and fun.
I want to give you guys a big thanks for the racing school a few weeks ago. You guys did a great job teaching me and my brother the spec racer ford. I just finished my first race and it was a blast. I started 14th out of 27 and finished 9th. Hope to get to race against you guys in the future. Thanks.
Kristen, Pro Drive should be cloned across the country. We have visited no less than 20 large and small facilities across the United States and a couple in Canada and you run as smooth of an operation as the best of them and much better than most. So on behalf of my group, thank you for everything!
Just wanted to pass on that my son, Cade Bennett, enjoyed the afternoon skid car class on Monday (as well as learned a lot!). We both thought that A.J. was an exceptional instructor. Got a blast out of his teaching style.
I just wanted to let you know that Greg had a blast. He texted me a few times during the day ... he said his teacher was very good and he loved letting his car loose. Funny, when I asked him what he wanted for his 60th birthday, he said "oh, a new drill would be good." Yesterday he went and got himself a new drill ... when I saw it, I said "aren't you glad I didn't get you a drill?" He said "YES" J thanks for giving him a great day.
That was great! AJ had a great temperament for Lizzie and I noticed right away that the things that make me worry about her driving were getting better. Thank you
Todd & Kristen - I just want to thank you two for making 2015 such a stellar year. I've only waited about 50 years to drive race cars and I cannot believe how fortunate I was to find you two to help move me towards that.
Your encouragement, your training, your patience, your help and those same attributes you foster in my team mates has really been beyond belief for me. I can't tell you how happy I am to be a part of the Pro Drive Racing Team. I am really looking forward to the 2016 racing season.
As a follow up to the 3-Day Racing School I attended, I would like to thank you, Todd, the coaches, the mechanics, and track personnel for a "dreams-come-true" life experience. The professionalism, coordination, organization, knowledge, support, encouragement and respect shown and shared by the Pro Drive staff to myself and the rest of the class was top-notch. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and I appreciate all the coaches' efforts in providing every student in the class with a thorough, fun and exciting way to learn how to drive a race car to the best of each one's ability. And finally, thank you, Kristen, for all your help with coordinating/cleaning our racing gear, helmets, doing all our lapping session times for each of us, and providing everyone with a wonderful selection of food for our lunches and snacks.......much appreciated!
A great day of "burning fuel" ... you guys are running an incredibly professional school
I totally enjoyed the class: the level of enthusiasm and commitment from all of you at Pro Drive was outstanding. No detail was overlooked in orchestrating our experience and your professionalism was always warmed with a human element. I'll try to be back as I'm still lapping in my head... Thanks so much!
Kristen and Todd - how do you keep making your program better each year? It was a fantastic day and I have to tell you that every single participant from the Salem group said that they had the best instructor ever! That speaks volumes about the two of you and how you run your program!!!
Again, thank you very much for your great hospitality, your amazing instructors and for your dedication to providing a fantastic day of learning at the track!!!
Just wanted to thank you again for an incredible 3 days! Far exceeded any expectations I may have had. What a professional and first class operation you have!
Obviously people are the key to success in any operation. The attention, compassion, professionalism, knowledge and commitment that your entire staff takes towards the students and entire program is truly exemplary.
Kristen - My boys had a great time and learned a lot. I've recommended you to so many people and parents who really should take advantage of the class for the safety of all of us! J Those boys drive from Eugene to Bend all the time so I feel much better now that they have completed the course. Thank you again for your patience in scheduling.
Thanks, Kristen. AJ was INCREDIBLE. I want to send my partner (who's a paramedic) to train with AJ for his Christmas present. He was that good. I learned a lot and feel like I'll be a much better driver, especially in wet and icy conditions. Many thanks for having this available to the public!
Patrick and I would like to thank you for a great weekend of racing. Beautiful weather, family-friendly people, and exemplary team coordination...what a fantastic blend!
Please know that we appreciate your hard work and continued efforts...your Team Pro Drive/Flat Out combo is a race winning recipe to be sure. Just awesome.
AWESOME class we took today!!! AJ was outstanding. Learned a ton and best part is I won't worry so much about my 16 yr old son driving this winter... (note I said NOT so much... still worry J ) .. thanks all!
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of using a gift from my wife for the defensive driving class in Portland. Chris was our instructor. He did the best job ever... I have never had a better demonstration on the engineering and mechanics of a vehicle's systems and what actually happens when you turn, and brake. Then, when we went from the classroom to the actual vehicle and it even made more sense. His gentle manner and expertise were so helpful and made so much sense. Bravo to Chris. I learned a lot and it truly has had an influence on my driving.
I took the Pro Drive skid course yesterday with my siblings instructed by Chris. I just wanted to leave you with some feedback from the course. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, because driving has always been a bit scary for me because of all the things that can go wrong. Not only did this course better my confidence with skidding and losing control, it also helped me practice being a more aware and cautious driver. I learned some very counter intuitive techniques that I know will help me throughout my lifetime of driving. I wanted to leave a very strong positive feedback about our instructor Chris, as well. He was very nice, very informative, and really helped me feel comfortable and relaxed. He was quick to tell me what went wrong with the car when I would skid out, and how to correct it for next time. He did not make me feel stupid or like a bad driver, in fact if anything he made me a more confident driver.
Thank you so much for the useful and fun driving course experience!
I was very pleased with the way the course was delivered, in a safe and professional atmosphere. Jim (skid class) and Dan (high performance) were both very knowledgeable and helpful in getting me to reach the goals I had set for myself to achieve in these classes. Many thanks to them both and to all of the staff that made this a very memorable event. I still have a great deal more to learn and can't wait to come back.....Thank You!!! I look forward to seeing you again.
