The temptation to give your new high performance car a bit of extra right foot can be detrimental to your wallet, licence and ultimately your safety.

Never fear – Performance Driving Australia has the solution!

Advanced Driver Training – Baskerville Raceway, Tasmania.

With a growing demand for advanced driving training days, Performance Driving Australia have just held another program at Baskerville Raceway near Hobart in Tasmania this weekend and are planning additional dates now.

The most recent day was a huge success with nearly 20 new drivers attending the full day program that included a range of driving exercises to practice braking, cornering and general car handling.

Drivers were then provided with 1:1 in car tuition for a few laps before being allowed to use the full track in the afternoon.

Drivers who have attended an advanced driving morning session before were able to just attend the afternoon session at a reduced cost.

With a total of 25 drivers attending the Advanced Driving day, the Performance Driving Australia crew were kept busy and all drivers had a great day with plenty of track time.

The track was wet all day – providing an extra challenge but all drivers drove well with no one ending up in the kitty litter.

For the first time, Performance Driving Australia also engaged the services of St Johns Ambulance who attended with an ambulance and crew providing an extra level of safety.

“These days are growing in popularity as they provide a unique chance to drive on the track with training from our experienced crew. There is no safer place to test your car and skills and we are always pleased to see the improvement in drivers abilities after each program. We committed to running more of these in Tasmania and hope to expand into the other states in the future”.

Performance Driving Australia will soon be launching a Performance Drivers Club with special offers for our advanced days and more. Stay tuned by following us on Facebook at or contact us at

The drivers were provided instruction on emergency braking, cornering and completed a slalom obstacle test before heading out to do laps of the challenging track with in-car coaching.

“PDA encourage safe driving and for those who want to learn a bit more and go a bit faster these advanced driving days are ideal. A mix of exercises and then supervised track sessions allows drivers to build confidence and skill in a safe environment” said Performance Driving Australia Manager Mark Butcher.

The mix of drivers and cars made for a good day. The social interaction and atmosphere was great and everyone went home with a better understanding of performance driving.driver training with pda
