What People Are Saying:

“Since 1989, I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Chris Cook. At that time in my life I had already established myself as one of the countries better racers, but it was working alongside and observing Chris, that my racing and teaching rose to an entirely higher level. In my mind, he is the most talented teacher of high performance driving in the USA…. with probably the best car control I’ve witnessed…. this including past teammates of mine that had raced in Formula one and Indy cars. My faith and trust in him so solid, that I encouraged my son to work with and learn from him . In doing so I immediately witnessed a drastic improvement in both his speed and car control on the race track. All that said, I would endorse Chris, above virtually any other organization in the United States. And do so with confidence.”

Perfect For Car Enthusiasts and Exotic Car Owners

Redevelop Your Enthusiast Driving Experience

For many who have an unwavering passion for high-performance or exotic cars, owning a vehicle of this type is more than just a purchase—it’s a lifestyle. The next step beyond ownership is learning how to drive exotic cars the same way NASCAR professionals hit the track. That’s where Chris Cook Performance comes into the picture.

Getting behind the wheel of an exotic car is entirely different than taking a traditional vehicle out for a spin. Signing up for the Enthusiast Driver Development program with Chris Cook Performance is a hands-on chance to learn the intricate details of making the most of an exotic car’s performance on the road.

These training sessions are limited to three cars to ensure a quality one-on-one training experience with every driver. Through the Enthusiast Driver Development course, drivers will learn how to better handle their exotic cars at enhanced speeds and recognize personal driving limits at the same time.

While some Enthusiast Driver Development program participants are prepping for an upcoming event, others simply want to hone their skills behind the wheel. Either way, you’ll be learning the critical high-performance techniques that make driving a more efficient and satisfying experience. That happens whether you’re in control of your own exotic car or handling one of ours.

At Chris Cook Performance, our services also go beyond lessons and extend to storage. When you’re looking for a place to safely stow your exotic car while it’s not in use, our CCP shop may be just the right place.

A variety of vehicles are used throughout training to ensure participants are equipped with the knowledge and flexibility to drive their way through just as many challenging scenarios.

Military and tactical teams benefit from this type of training when honing their skills behind the wheel. Moving between cars and trucks that require versatile skill sets to handle helps drivers feel confident at all times, even within an ultra-challenging environment.

We teach techniques using efficient, effective, and engaging conditions that allow for practice at the required levels of proficiency. Performance through these courses is graded against safe, measurable, and proven standards.

We’ve designed our courses to utilize speed, power, and repetition and create an environment in which participants move away from driving under stress and proceed to manage stress while behind the wheel. With time, drivers will learn how to make hyper-focused micro-decisions quickly to maximize their vehicle’s performance and ensure every mission is safely and successfully accomplished.

Our program participants will walk away with new techniques related to a range of vehicles. They’ll also have gained skills related to enhanced concentration and confidence within the realm of emotional control.
