The Starting Line - TNIA school introduces key concepts applicable to performance driving and offers participants the opportunity to develop motorsports skills while working with professional performance driving instructors. Before going on track, students begin the day with the a series of exercises in a controlled environment and "Chalk Talks" to discuss car control, performance driving, and track driving concepts. Instructors provide in-car instruction during the Starting Line school, and are available for trackside observation and continued coaching throughout the Track Night In America evening.
