Skip Barber is excited to announce that they have partnered with Apex Pro. The innovative Apex Pro gives instructors and students instant feedback and access to the latest in motorsports data technology with powerful, yet intuitive tools from Apex that reinforce the disciplines learned in the classroom.
The Apex Pro unit utilizes a row of LEDs to provide drivers with immediate feedback of how they are doing on the racetrack and enables the instructors to utilize high-resolution performance data after sessions to review with their students. APEX Pro is a machine-learning algorithm with vast data intake and computing power, allowing drivers to instantly learn where on any track their vehicle is capable of higher performance. APEX ushers in an era of useful, grip based, real-time feedback.
“We met Anthony and his team a few years ago, and were excited to hear of their acquisition of the Skip Barber name in December 2017. This team not only knows how to run a top tier driving school, but they’ve established relationships with some of the great instructors from Skip Barber that built it into the incredible training ground that it was,” said Andrew Rains from Apex Pro. “Being a Skip Barber graduate myself, I can’t say how thrilled I am to see Anthony and his team “get the band back together” and rejuvenate the industries’ greatest brand.”
Anthony DeMonte, CEO of Skip Barber Racing School, is equally impressed by the Apex Pro. “We are constantly looking for ways to improve our program and Andrew and his team have developed a really innovative training tool that our team is really excited to utilize both in the cars and in the classroom. The combo of instant visual feedback of how they are performing on track, coupled with the data available for our instructors to review with the students is a really great fit for our program.”
Skip Barber Racing School will begin to introduce the Apex Pro system to their 3 Day Racing School and 2 Day Advanced Racing School. Check out www.SkipBarber.com for upcoming events.
