Jerkoff Track Day Instructor Outed On YouTube, Fired

This guy driving a MS3 goes on his first track day and gets no instruction from his instructor. I haven't been on a track day but are these 'instructors' like the volunteer ones you get when you do Solo's or do you have to pay for them??

most instructors are volunteers, some are paid with oney, some are paid with track time during the particular clubs track time that he's volunteering for.
This guy was kind of a jerk only pointing out his faults and not correcting what he was doing wrong or explaining what he did wrong. He did say he'd let the guy take 1 lap and then see what he was doing, but all I heard was douchery

Wow, that makes me appreciate the instructor I had during my first HPDE so much more! What a jackass.

What an ass. If the guy doesn't want to help someone why even become and instructor.

I love the vid! Seems like just a lot of friendly banter to me

I guess most of us will never get to say "I need to hit the breaks because I don't want to hit the Ferrari" LOL
