“I attended the ABRS in 2009 when it was based in Calgary. I did a two-day course with the first day being in karts, and the second day in the formula renault 1.6. This was my first time to attend a proper race training academy, and I came away with a new knowledge of racing theory and techniques. I look forward to continuing to use the skills I was taught at the ABRS while I race in the Lamborghini Asia series.”
