  • Q: Who are the instructors?

  • Q: Do I need to do anything with my vehicle beforehand?

    A: Before arriving at your High Performance Driving Program session, it is important to ensure that your Lexus is in safe working condition. It is recommended to have vehicle components such as brakes, tires and fluids checked at your local Lexus dealership.
    On the day of the event, please arrive with a full tank of fuel in your Lexus, and remove all loose items in your car that can potentially roll around and become a hazard.

  • Q: What driving skills are taught in the summer vs the winter?

    A: There are a variety of skills taught and experienced in the summer program. These include slalom, emergency avoidance and cornering dynamics. Drivers also get to experience lapping sessions with the instructors themselves. All participants are educated on proper performance driving seating, vision, steering and braking.
    The Winter High Performance Driving Program differs from the summer program with a larger focus on driving in icy conditions. Participants experience exercises such as slalom, acceleration, braking, oversteering, understeering and driving on icy roads. All participants are educated on proper performance driving seating, vision, steering and braking.

  • Q: What should I bring with me on the day of the event?

    A: On the day of your scheduled event, please ensure you come to the track with a valid driver’s license and, if you wish, a helmet. Depending on the season, the recommended attire will differ. In the summer, it is recommended that you wear comfortable loose clothing, sunglasses and proper footwear (e.g. tennis shoes). In the winter time, it is recommended that you wear warm but loose and comfortable clothing (as you will spend most of the sessions in the car) and sunglasses. Please avoid wearing heavy, bulky boots for the driving sessions, as such footwear may restrain your movement.

  • Q: Will I be able to bring a guest with me?

    A: Each participant is welcome to bring 1 Guest, provided they are 21 years of age or older. Please indicate your intention to bring a Guest on the registration form.

  • Q: Will I be able to take photos or video of my experience?

    A: By all means. In fact, mention Lexus Canada with @LexusCanada or #LexusCanada on social media for a chance to be featured on a national scale.
