A real stock car roars around a banked oval track as a coach's voice crackles in the driver's ear. This isn?t the Indy 500; it's L.A. Racing. Featured on NBC Today in L.A., L.A. Racing's Adventure programs let would-be racers grip the wheel during fast-forward laps around a real track. This video shows the rubber meeting the road at Irwindale Speedway.
Inside, L.A. Racing's instructors educate new drivers, helping them get a feel for new tracks and learn to follow the proper line through turns. These practice cars feature realistic racing effects?engine vibrations and road-surface texture, for example. Competition courses are available for drivers who want to take racing to the next level and master advanced techniques such as throttle control, trail braking, and passing.
