It’s been a while since we’ve last posted an article. COVID has been hard on the automotive journalism world, but we’re starting again. Our first on-site coverage is of the opening of a new racing school based at Willow Springs International Raceway.
The Dement Kwan Racing School (DK Racing) is the brainchild of racer Martina Kwan and Vision Motorsports head, Dwain Dement—the first male and female FIA license team to start a driving school. The school offers a full day of instruction by seasoned racers, who take students around in groups on Big Willow (the largest course at Willow Springs), teaching them how to attack the corners, car balance, power application, and track safety and communication via flags and hand signals. The DK Racing School had to do it all, just socially distanced and masked.
Driver lead instructor, Kwan said, “DK Racing School was in part working in support of the PCA San Diego region to assist students, some who were trying to gain their Certificate for Solo Driving, so that they could start attending PCA-SDR DE and Time Trial Events.”
Being that Vision Motorsports is a major player in the Porsche community, representatives from the Porsche Club of America, San Diego, were on hand to assist students, some who were trying to gain their Porsche license so that they can start attending Porsche racing events.
