Hooked On Driving Launches Ambitious Thunderhill Schedule In 2011!

General News

Hooked On Driving’s Northern California Region has announced its 2011 schedule. Specializing in bringing new individuals in to the motorsports hobby with a polished beginner program, HOD works with drivers to develop their skills and helps drivers move up the skill ladder without pushing them to race. “We have a family-oriented culture where safety is the first priority, and fun is second. We don’t push drivers to race and in fact, we focus more on technique than pace,” says owner David Ray. “On the other hand, when someone is ready to race, we send them to qualified racing organizations like the SCCA, NASA or other Club racing groups. What’s interesting is that they almost all come back, either as coaches, bringing family and friends, or just to practice in our advanced groups,” says Ray.

 

Thunderhill is the NorCal Region’s home track because it was built to do what HOD does. HOD drivers love the course itself with its great variety, challenge and ample runoff room. And the physical facilities are the best. They always utilize the Thunderhill food service and HOD has spoiled its drivers who expect great lunches! HOD has the goal of guiding amateur drivers to develop and enjoy their skills, and drive their car faster than would be prudent on the public highways. With 21 dates at Thunderhill this year – and more possibly to be added – Hooked On Driving has a date for anyone who would like to give the track, and track driving a try. 

 

Of course HOD doesn’t drive just at Thunderhill.  Their drivers like variety as well – so the 2011 HOD schedule includes SIX tracks: Thunderhill, Infineon, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Reno-Fernley Raceway, and Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. With 30 dates on track this year, the loyal Hooked On Driving customer is sure to find the challenge, variety, and fun that he or she is seeking in this awesome sport.
