You want help, we got you covered! So who can join? The Advanced Driving Academy is available to all RaceDepartment Premium members and is suitable for those with a little or a lot of experience behind the virtual wheel. Additional sessions for absolute beginners or those looking to make multiple seconds of laptime gain will be accommodated in additional rookie orientated sessions over and above these events. When do they run? We will be host two sessions per series, with start times designed to support our drivers in the US and EU time zones. The first of the series will begin on Monday 29th January, with places limited to 10 drivers in order to ensure dedicated support is possible from our experience tutors. How to I sign up?
