"I went to the school to learn the fundamentals of racing and also to do some lapping around Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. After I went once, I found that it was just not enough. There is so much to learn and the seat time behind the wheel becomes addictive."
-Bop Hallapy (Dublin, Ohio), Acura High Performance and Advanced High Performance graduate

"I appreciate all you did toward making my first track driving experience such a memorable one."
-Nancy L. Altenburg
