    Most of the instructors couldn't drive their way out of a wet paper bag....They have some really good instructors, guys that have been doing it for a while and have racing experience, and then a bunch of wannabe's who just like being called a BMW driving instructor. And then there's Stuie, who just wants free track time :lol: :lol:
