Has anyone here attended this program? http://www.race2000.com/courses/wwr

Any opinions appreciated.

I was also looking at the 2 day lapping course but the day 3 of the link above reads like it's well worth it for the experience and fun. I had looked at the Calabogie programs but this one seems much more hands/feet on which is what I want.

I am on the edge of the fitment for the car in terms of height and shoulder width so hopefully I'll fit...

$4k. Wow. I say do it. Looks fun.

Yeah, it's not cheap...but it's their car, gas, tires, and zero responsibility if you bend something - but they apparently have a flawless record in that regard.

Last year I was looking at the Jim Russell school in Tremblant.

Closer than Toronto, but about $300 more.

I did the Jim Russell school at Tremblant. FWIW...at least Tremblant is an interesting track. The DDT is a bit boring.
The JR school will rev limit the cars, so you never really get the full effect of the power and the aero.
Don't go if you can't drive fast (heel/toe, etc)...learn that first...then you can focus on racecraft (driving with other cars)

I'd say Tremblant is a a bit more than simply an "interesting" track.... :)

The new cars they have are sequential no more need for heal and toe. The old cars were interesting to drive that is for sure.
