Hello, SM Drivers! I want to thank Jim for starting this whole thing and Glenn for providing a terrific tool to help drivers get better!

We've had good interest already regarding our upcoming seminar series, due to be kicked off Thursday, July 23rd and Friday July 24th. These initial seminars will complement one another and together, provide a one-two punch allowing attendees to become fluent not only in the use and maintenance of the Traqmate system, but begin to and progress making sense of all of the voluminous data collected by this great tool. We'll help you become familiar and facile with the Windows navigation required to use this system as well.

Traqmate 101 will cover not only hardware interface, file collection and storage workflows, firmware and software updates and becoming familiar with ALL the features of TraqView and TraqStudio, but also begin to delve into what all of this data means and HOW to apply it towards improving your driving THE VERY NEXT SESSION! We'll study braking rates and behaviors, acceleration rates and transitions, breaking up the track to begin segment analysis (an important tool to evaluate technique changes as simple as whether or not to change a gear at a particular point on the circuit) and to determine TBL, comparison lap setup among your OWN laps and with others. We'll even show you how to determine the rate and amplitude of steering input to SEE if you're "on time" (or more usually, LATE) through the Uphill Esses at VIR! Even if you've used this device for several years, you can come away from this seminar comfortable and confident that you can not only better utilize this information yourself, but know enough to show others how to use it. If you have ANY reservations about the use of the hardware or software, you NEED to attend this seminar. It's for folks who want to do more than to just "scratch the surface" of this powerful tool.

Traqmate 202 will focus much more on making intelligent use of and the interpretation of the collected data FROM A DRIVER'S POINT OF VIEW. Utilizing many of the concepts made popular by William Mitchell and Jorge Segers (SAE, Society of Automotive Engineers technical paper and book authors), Traqmate 202 will explore the various ways the data can be sliced and diced to form a useful and accurate picture of the driver's strengths and weaknesses, comfort and confidence anywhere on the course. This is not a terribly "technical" or "mathematical" treatise, but instead a critical, intensive look on how to recognize patterns of driver behavior and successfully develop strategies to fix those behaviors that require fixing! Attendance of Traqmate 101 is highly recommended as we will be exploring all aspects of the use and capabilities of TraqView and TraqStudio, focusing much more on "soft" concepts.

A light dinner will be provided courtesy of Millie's Pizza from Milton, NC at our facility midway through the seminar. Water, soft drinks and iced tea will be provided. All is included in the price of the seminar. Please spread the word amongst your friends and online so that we can get the word out as soon as possible. We already have several more scheduled for this Summer and Fall!

Thanks, Peter
