VPRACE Services - Driver Development and Safety

By: Vprace  09-12-2011

Your safety is of paramount importance to us. It starts with the obvious, with thorough, comprehensive race prep and rigorous inspection procedures. It also means making you comfortable in the car, both from an issue of fitment and of driver development. Your car should be like an extension of you, responding to your inputs in a safe, linear fashion. We want your interface with the car to be optimal, whether it requires changing the motion of the shifter, reducing the clutch pedal effort or giving you extra clearance in the cockpit. You simply cannot perform your best if you are not comfortable in the car.

Once the preparation and fitment process is complete, the fun begins. Track time is precious, and we want you to make the most of it. Prior to the event, we will provide you with a course map and any information we can about the nuances of this track. Upon your arrival you will find everything ready to go. Your car is fully prepped, fueled, and properly geared for this track. Your driver gear is waiting in the trailer and our support team is ready to meet your needs. All you need to do is focus on your driving.

When testing we can employ several options to accelerate your learning curve. A VP race vehicle can provide lead and follow laps around the course if you are unfamiliar or would just like to try a different technique. Radio support, both car to car and crew to car, allow us to observe your driving and offer whatever level of input you desire. VP also provides complete test driving and set-up services with an FIA licensed driver on staff.

Other products and services from Vprace


VPRACE Services - Support and Event Logistics

VP has either supported or participated in the Mille Miglia, Goodwood Festival and Revival, the Monaco Historique, the Old Timer Grand Prix, as well as the Australian Grand Prix, and the Phillip Island Vintage Festival. We begin by executing all the race entry forms and keeping all your licenses current, procuring any new licenses as necessary.


VPRACE Services - Transportation

We have found that customers who want the kind of support and service we provide really enjoy the convenience, safety and trackside presentation a rig like ours affords. We almost always rent a motor home for each race, and we simply divide the cost of the motor home among the customers present at the race. We want the total experience, both on and off the track, to be as enjoyable and as comfortable as possible.


VPRACE Services - Engine & Transaxle

Once the engine performance baseline is established, the engines are tracked throughout their service life by the use of cylinder leakdown testing, digital borescope photography, oil analysis, life cycle tracking and traditional inspection procedures. We specialize in incorporating modern materials and engineering advances into these engines to lengthen the time between overhauls and improve overall reliability.


VPRACE Services - Chassis Setup

Our equipment includes a full chassis set up platform, computer linked corner weight scales, dynamic spring rate measurement equipment and laser aided alignment systems, all in house. Most experienced drivers would agree that there is more horse power hidden in the chassis than in the engine.
