Post Panoz Subaru driving school

Subaru is taking the top 20 salespeople in the nation to the Panoz driving school. I am getting a bit nervous, at last count I was #17, anybody need a new Subie? I need all the extra help I can get!

I am so jealous you have no idea! Why they couldn't do anything cool like that when I was selling Scoobs is beyond me. Have a good time, I know a couple guys that just did the Panoz Race school (in the GT-RA) and they said it was fanatastic. BTW these two guys build race cars for a living and have done Skip Barber twice each so...

Oh yeah and after they cam back they got all drooly over my RS cause the instructors showed em what it can do.

Pardon me for being pissed, but why couldn't they organize something like this for all the people that were interested that BOUGHT the cars from them?

Honestly, if you talk to the dealers around here you'll agree that they should send any of them to driving school, they should send them to learn about their own products and to get their heads out of their a**es.

deadbolt - No offense intended toward you, since you read this board and actually participate (hell, since you know about this board for that matter), you're far ahead of the game. I hope you get up there and have a lotta fun.

How much does it cost to attend the Panoz Subaru driving school? I am sure they offer courses if you pay em enough... I would definitely be interested too!

I've been interested / inquiring about the Panoz Subaru Driving School for some time. They never seam to hold the courses they advertise, let alone as frequently as I would hope. The base course uses the Legacy 2.5 GT but w/ automatic trans.??? The advanced or next course up uses the Impreza 2.5 RS w/ manual trans. but I've not found / been able to sign up for that course since they started it (2-3 years now). The very very few advanced courses they do hold are filled up before you hear about them. Now I'm hearing that Scooby sales persons are taking my potential slots, I know not all are created equal but the local dealer sales forces here are truly lacking. Great idea, poor execution. But I'm still trying.

I went to the Advanced Handling school last year. It was an absolute blast. $950 for two days of instruction and some time on the Road Atlanta circuit.

Checkpoint posted my full review here:
http://www.egr.unlv.edu/~simon/2.5RS/edit/Panoz_Subaru.html

I think the event for the dealers is separate from the classes open to the public.

There are also three and four day GT racing schools that are taught in the Panoz GT-RA car. It is pretty pricey, but looks like the experience of a lifetime.

There is scheduling info, etc here:
http://www.panozracingschool.com/Advanced%20Handling%20Main.asp

It looks like the next session happens at the end of June.

I signed up for the June 24-25 Advanced Handling class on April 18th. The two-day class was $795. I'll give a full review when the time comes .

mccasksl, their web page has the schedule for the year posted. You should be able to find an empty slot at one of the time. Just go to http://panozracingschool.com/
