ARL WANTS YOU! Calling all drivers…. The ARL drivers’ school is currently and actively seeking instructors to join us on Thursday nights. There has been an expressed interest from our driver pool (and GTPlanet) in general, for us to really kick this program into high gear. We need your help! If you feel as though your skill level in this driving simulator can help others out, we want you! Some basic criteria: · An instructor can be from either division, Silver or Bronze. · An instructor must be willing to devote up to one hour on Thursday evenings (9PM EST) to assist, help, develop and grow other drivers from within and outside of our ARL community. · An instructor must have a headset/mic, in order to effectively communicate with the student. · An instructor must be willing to teach one or all of the basics, intermediate and finer points of driving. That’s about it! We are looking to give back to the driving community and ask that you help us in this endeavor. How a typical Thursday night may play out: · A BOD member will open a lobby titled ARL DRIVER SCHOOL. · As drivers/instructors join the lobby, we encourage the instructor to “buddy up” with a new or newer driver. · The pair should then break off into a private chat, so as not to be interrupted or distracted by general chatter. · The instructor either follows, rides in car, or both, as the student drives around the track. This is the point where your instruction, expertise and experience will pay off for the student. · A series of mini races will be held throughout the course of the evening/driving school period. An instructor may partake in the race or choose to ride “in car” with the student, spotting and coaching as the race progresses. · A driver should spend at least 45 minutes with the student.
