Every driver can benefit from taking a performance driving course. The techniques used to extract maximum performance are often the same as those used in emergency situations like black ice.

Not too long ago Mercedes Benz created the AMG Driving Academy which was an excuse for people with very expensive cars to get together and actually, ya know, learn how to drive the damned thing. Luckily for the those of us who can’t afford to drop 80K or more on a car, the good folks at Mercedes recorded a bunch of their lessons. The series is now available to the rest of us thanks to the miracle of the series of tubes. Even if you have no intention of racing most of the principals and techniques explained in this series has a very real application to everyday driving.
