Right Seat Instruction (RSI) - Richard Petty Driving Experience
Right Seat Instruction (RSI)



Richard Petty Driving Experience (RPDE), the worldwide leader in stock car drive and ride entertainment, has adopted an all-new Right Seat Instruction (RSI) driving format at all 20+ track locations at which we operate*. 

With the introduction of RSI, student drivers are now accompanied in the race car by a professional RPDE driving instructor as the student driver completes their experience. Both student driver and instructor wear Stilo helmets featuring a built-in, two-way open-mic system, allowing for clear communication, instantaneous interaction, coaching and feedback. 

RSI gives student drivers the ability to make immediate changes to their driving technique, instantly improve their driving performance, and ultimately helps them “drive faster…faster.”

RPDE is the only consumer stock car driving experience in the country offering this technology. 

“Customers will benefit from hearing instant feedback from their instructor while there’s still time to make adjustments on-track that will improve their driving, increase their speeds and, ultimately, better their experience,” says Rick Fedrizzi, President and Chief Operating Officer of RPDE. “First timers will get comfortable much more quickly and returners will find RSI to be an all-new experience.”

RSI provides customers with an interactive, engaging experience that requires active, thoughtful driving and allows students to get the most out of their abilities.
