LEARN TO RACE AT THE OAKLAND VALLEY RACING ACADEMY

Tim Hannen, Chief Instructor at OVRP, has been competing in outdoor kart racing and auto road racing throughout the U.S. for more than 20 years and has many championships and awards to show for his efforts. Before becoming the owner of OVRP Tim was an educator. He has an instinctive ability to relate to students, build on their strengths, and focus on the individual’s progress.

Complementing the OVRP Racing Academy staff are knowledgeable kart and auto road racers who regularly compete in MX-5 Cup, F2000, and RotaxMax Challenge events, and who enthusiastically endorse the principles of OVRP’s teaching philosophy.

The OVRP staff of instructors also includes Junior Instructors that have demonstrated themselves as accomplished racers in regional, national, and international competition. The peer mentoring element of the program has proven to be a benefit in making new drivers more comfortable in acclimating them to the karts, the track, and to racing in competition.

Personalized attention is the keystone of racing instruction at OVRP. Depending on the students level of ability and experience programs can include off-track kart orientation, track orientation, lead-follow track sessions, the racing line, braking points, turn-in points, trail braking, race starts, and race strategy. Each program is tailored to the individual student: we start at your level of ability, and instruction progresses as you progress. You won’t be left behind, and attention is concentrated on your racing development.

All equipment is provided: helmet, gloves, driving suit, and kart appropriate for age and size. Classes are best scheduled on weekdays by appointment (weekends are normally busy with race events.
