GOOD TO KNOW

ACCOMPANYING PERSONS

During the STEP 1 training course accompanying persons may sit beside the driver; however they are not permitted to drive the car themselves during the training. No accident insurance for passengers exists on the part of both the Verkehrssicherheitszentrum Sachsenring and the drift&drive rally school.

CLOTHES

Wearing clothes that do not limit your mobility is an important aspect for feeling good during your rally training on the Verkehrssicherheitszentrum Sachsenring. Choose a sportive and comfortable set of clothes and please, do not wear shoes with slippery soles or high-heels! It is recommended to wear waterproof shoes, since you will often have to leave your car for explanations during the training sessions and most tracks are flooded. Therefore, it is also recommended to bring a warm jacket (even in spring or fall).

CARS AND PREPARATION


STEP 1: Using your own car, you will be able to apply the acquired knowledge in your day-to-day driving. In wintry weather cars must be equipped with winter tires.

For the rally training the car should be prepared as follows:

  • Motor Oil: The oil-level should be between MIN and MAX.
  • Fuel: To avoid a time consuming refueling stop, your tank should be at least half-full.
  • Interior: Just like in day-to-day driving all things that cannot be fastened have to be removed; otherwise they become dangerous projectiles when braking or cornering hard.
  • Trunk/Boot: All hard and heavy things should be removed as well. Unfastened spare cans, briefcases or the like won’t only make unpleasant noises but also dent the inside of the trunk/boot!

QUALIFICATIONS:

Every rally training participant at the Verkehrssicherheitszentrum Sachsenring has to have a valid driver's license.

TRAINING FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT

Our rally training takes place on flooded slippery surfaces, which simulate conditions on snow-covered roads. Therefore, cars tend to react quite strongly even at low speeds without putting much stress on the vehicle or the tires. Participants are in radio contact with their instructor who can provide individual and situation-specific hints, making the training interactive. Cause and effect will be explained immediately and in a practice-oriented way.
