performance driving school

I would like to do this before i take delivery of my car, can anyone suggest a good school where i can learn car control, drifting, and tracking a car? I would prefer something in california but that is not necessary.

thanks Joey

Bondurant is probably the gold standard. But, most of their courses do start at $1,000+.

If you are looking for something a little cheaper, you might look at the tracks around you for some of their daily clinics. For example, I know Buttonwillow up near Bakersfield offers day sessions at a little more approachable price. Other forums have mentioned good things about them.

i think i may do button willow once i get my car then because you have to bring your own car but it is very reasonable at only 225 bucks a day.
