What are our client's saying about Pro Drive's Programs
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. Thanks.
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!
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!
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.
I wanted to thank you again for a fantastic experience with your school. The quality of the personalities and the training, as well as, the experience of driving a racecar all exceeded my expectations. I learned far more than I thought I would and will hopefully continue to build on the base of skills I established in your school.
Your whole staff is excellent; you have assembled a great team of dedicated professionals. I was anxious to get on track, but after being on track I recognized how important the classroom and drill fundamentals are.
