ESR would like to invite all the new drivers or old ones, who are looking to improve and learn in a friendly environment. Welcome to the ESR Academy which is entering its second season. The goal of this series is to develop drivers in their own language. With Coach support and report cards ESR more senior members will do everything they to bring you up to speed. There will be 2 lessons this season based on pace and needs; Class 101 or the Under Class is about to be setup and get the basics on a fast track. The Second Class (201 or Upper) wants to unlock the setups and focus on more advanced concepts for drivers with a solid understanding of racing. After the success of the of the first class in the Audi TT we have decided on a new challenge in the form of the BMW 235i. Why is this car a great academy car? Well it's rear wheel drive as opposed to the front wheel drive Audi and is a very stable base. This should allow for a reasonably short period of learning the car and the ability to advance to more general concepts for pace, overtaking, defending and becoming a complete racer. The tracks will keep free content, keeping the costs of this academy very low. In addition, we want to have a wildcard feature 101 drivers to perform clean races to earn an entry into the race against the more advanced drivers.
