Jim Russell Racing School

Should the slopes and trails of Mont-Tremblant not satisfy your need for speed, sign up for a race car driving course with Jim Russell’s racing school on a former Formula One track. Classes range from a two-hour test drive to more intensive multi-day courses in race technique and track lapping. No experience is necessary, and the courses are open to anyone who can handle a stick shift and can fit into a race car. All courses use Van Diemen Spec Formula FR02 race cars, about as close to an F1 as most of us mere mortals will get. Should you be lucky enough to drive your own high-performance vehicle, Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant also holds courses with pro instructors to experience the road without stoplights or speed limits.
