ISA Tactical Driving

ISA tactical driving trains high-speed vehicle dynamic skills for mission readiness across varying terrain capitalizing on rally driving techniques used by professional rally drivers. Rally driving occurs at high speeds, across varying surfaces, around obstacles and is timed. The number one cause of fatalities is vehicle control loss during surface transition changes at high speeds. ISA has the terrain and technical skill to train drivers how to properly manage surface changes and avoid fatalities. ISA training saves lives!

Rally High-Speed Multi-Surface

All rally stages and road courses can be run with any vehicle platform the training mission dictates; front or all-wheel drive rally cars, SUVs, up-armored Land Cruisers, low profile sedans, or ATVs and UTVs. This course incorporates 20 miles of configurable rally stages across a 1.6 mile curvy and technical race track. Units can train across dirt, lime rock, sand, tarmac, waterbeds, and dense forestry in the same training cycle, transitioning from loose surface to paved roadway and back to hard pack surface.

  • Lane Evasion & Decision-Making Drills
  • Proper Cornering Techniques
  • Serpentine Drills
  • Steering Wheel Management
  • Evasive Steering and Shuffle Steering
  • Brake & Evade Drills
  • Understeer/Oversteer – Lane Positioning – Skid Control

4 x 4 Off-Road

This course spans 420 acres of terrain with dirt, water, sand, mud, limerock, paved tarmac, and dense forestry. Courses are connected to our firing ranges, rally driving stages and our paved road courses allowing mission essential task lists to be completed expeditiously. Training iterations occur at high-speed with transitions across off-road, paved surfaces and into low-speed tank traps and uphill climbs. In our tactical training, we can also incorporate night vision and high-speed asset recovery while taking fire.
