    "Amazing experience with so much one-on-one training and feedback. Many different styles of cars to choose from. When you successfully complete a two day course, you will have the potential to race in SVRA, SCCA, and NASA.  I highly recommend starting here to get your license(s). Can't wait to return and get more seat time." Google Review

    "I'd have to say that I am very impressed with the quality, attention to detail, and professionalism of the course. The instructors were passionate about teaching your properly. Nothing they did was in half measure. I found the experience more than what I thought it was going to be. The outfit KNOWS what they are doing and they want to ensure you get an excellent education with a great deal of track time." Facebook Review

    " I would describe the school as both challenging and supportive, simultaneously.  This is hard to pull off, but they did it.  All in all a very good school experience and I recommend Kaizen without reservation. " Facebook Review

    "I had a blast at school.  Peter and his staff are top notch and provide great instruction and exercises to gain more confidence in skills and to learn new skills. His program transitions smoothly, one exercise to the other, all building up to make you comfortable in a race environment. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking to learn more skills, become a better racer, or gain your competition license." Google Review
