NER DE at Calabogie: A Deep Dive for Solo Drivers

Event Type: 
Drivers Education

This is NER's third annual "Deep Dive" for solo drivers again being held at Calabogie Motorsports Park (Calabogie, Ontario, Canada)

Open to all drivers  – limited to 60 drivers;

Open to all car types  (NER DEs always allow non-Porsche drivers)

All PCA Driver Education requirements are in effect.


Venue and Overview  This event will have in attendance up to three Professional Coaches for the duration of the event. They will be hand selected by  Lee Carpentier, a professional coach, and members of the NER DE Team to specifically work with attending Solo drivers and PCA Instructors;


Before the event, all Solo Students will be required to set personal goals for the three day event and share those with the Pro Coaches and lead NER Instructors. In that way, we can assimilate your goals with a series of personalized in-car sessions. Too, all solo students will have a series of things to accomplish before even arriving at the track;


During the event  – there will be four 30 minute “Instructed Sessions” each day where solo students (with a pro coach or NER Instructor) will share the track and can work on various aspects of both the track and driver training. These sessions will be run at typical Yellow/Blue Run Group pace, and afford Solo drivers a slower paced opportunity to work on a one-on-one basis with someone in the “right seat”;


The remaining track time during the day will be “Open Track” where Solo students can be paired with the Pro Coach or Instructor at their own driving pace – or, of course, drive solo to work on their own goals. There will be at least four hours of “Open Track” per day;


There will be a mandatory classroom each day during lunch (which we’re working on to be locally catered?!). These classes will be taught by the attending Pro Coaches and NER Instructors;


There will be a mandatory classroom & debrief when the track goes cold at the end of the first two days (liquid refreshments will be served). These sessions are designed to wrap up the day's events and set goals for the following day;


During certain times, we will be holding a series of “On Track” driver exercises including passing skills, braking exercises, trail braking, corner entry and exit speed drills, etc.


During the event, we will also have corner “spotters” working at various times. They will share their observations both personally and in the general classrooms.

Registration for this event will open March 1st at Club Registration.
