Leanne and I wanted to thank you so much for your time and dedication in the Karting Academy over this past weekend at the Irvine K1 Speed location.
Rehn had a great time and learned so much. That is definitely a day he will remember and learn from for years to come. It is great to see his quick improvement and attention to technical details that revolve around Karting, and racing in general.
We just wanted to let you know that you left a VERY positive and lasting impression on a great your man in Rehn.
THANK YOU and hope to see you on the circuit again someday soon.
Any additional advice, feedback, or comments are always welcomed.Dan and LeanneIrvine
Patricio, I can't thank you enough! My boys Marcus & Matt talked about their experience the entire ride home, and they’re already asking about taking the next time in Anaheim. The personalized attention and individualized instruction were a more than I expected. I would HIGHLY recommend your class to anyone! Thanks again!John M.Anaheim
I wanted to take a moment to praise the Kart Academy at K1Speed. This was a fantastic experience from the very start. Patricio graciously welcomed drivers as we came in. He had a positive and cheerful attitude that added to the classroom environment. The school setup was very efficiently organized, from the welcome to the final race. I was able to drop my laptime by almost a full second! I was able to take away knowledge to further improve my time!Justin B.San Francisco
Our son, Ellis, was in your kids class at K1 Speed in Houston a few months ago. He is loving go karting and gets to practice a little, but not as often as he would like.
Your class was so much fun for him, and he learned so much. He talks about getting his apex right all the time, and has gotten much faster. He was just getting started when he took the class.
On Spring Break last week, we were in Austin, and we took him to K1Speed there twice. On the second trip, he had a couple of races where he was the only car on the track.
In fact, he trimmed nearly 10 seconds off his times while we were in Austin. More than that, he had one lap that, we were told, broke the Junior record for the Austin track: 27.891! He ran sub 30 laps the whole time for about three races. Compare that with the 40s and upper 30s he did during the class!
He is very proud, and we thought you'd like to know. He wants to be an F1 driver when he grows up.
Thanks again from all of us!Mimi V.Houston
The three of us had a wonderful time at your facility during the Patrico Jordain class. Patrico is as talented as an instructor as he is a racer.
Thanks for putting on the class,Mike R.Phoenix
I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did with the junior clinic last Saturday. Ethan had a great time, learned a lot and hasn’t stopped talking about it.
Good luck in your racing, be safe and we’ll be watching.
Hey, Patricio. I ended up coming to your course this morning (the 16th) with a friend and we both had a great time. I just wanted to say that your teaching today has totally improved my indoor karting experience. My first best lap in that circuit today was 24.253, and with your tips and some practice, I clocked a 22.965 in a later race (first place out of ten!).
I noticed on some documentation that there were both “introductory and advanced courses.” I was wondering when an advanced course was taking place next and I was also wondering if you were the instructor in the advanced class. I would definitely like to attend.
Thanks for the information, and thanks for today!Thomas S.Irvine
