Double TCR International Series champion Stefano Comini has launched the TCR Europe Academy that will begin its activities this summer. Based in Switzerland, the TCR Europe Academy will operate at different racetracks around Central Europe.
The Academy will offer drivers different options for approaching TCR competition through three course levels: Performance, Master and Advanced.
3-day Performance Course: focusing on theory on day one that will be followed by two days of on-track apprenticeship. The course is aimed at young drivers and at those who approach TCR and Touring Car competition for the first time.
2-day Master Course: dedicated to those who have attended the Performance Course and to racing drivers with proven experience. It will mainly consist of track activities, accompanied by in-depth analysis of theoretical knowledge. It will focus on performance and driving technique.
1-day Advanced Course: a private individual lesson for drivers who have already attended the Performance Group. The programme will be customized according to the driver’s characteristics.
Activity and practice sessions during the courses will include: physical and psychological training, simulations with specific training programmes, on board cameras, starting procedures, car set-up, telemetry analysis, overtaking techniques, racing strategies for sprints and endurance, simulation of a whole racing weekend (qualifying, sprint and endurance races).
All coaches will be experienced TCR drivers and, for on-track activities, TCR racing cars with DSG and sequential gearboxes will be used.
