ProPak Program -- for Professional Drivers
For over a quarter century, PersonaGrip's ProPak Program has been refined with endless grip design development, troubleshooting, and driver training.
Numerous IndyCar and Formula One Championships have been won in the hands of drivers using PersonaGrip's serial-numbered racing steering wheels as they pulled into the Winner's Circles.
In the past -- prior to the Internet -- Dellis was always present at the tracks to administer the PersonaGrip steering wheel conversions and support for professional drivers.
However, through decades of experience and now Video Chat in everyone's pocket, drivers can now have their racing steering wheels converted and dialed-in from anywhere off-site, off-track, or around the world using overnight Shipping & Return.
In a Nutshell...
ProPak Program is offered in an overnight Ship & Return format for $1250, plus shipping.
The need for this Season-Long Program stems from seeing the work of talented teams and drivers who have embraced the concept, and are now making their own steering wheel grips with DIY kits and 3D modeling...I salute you.
What looks initially relatively easy on the surface gets quite nuanced as you go down the endless Rabbit Holes...there's only so much info that can come from a basic force analysis...then, there's how you use that info to create the 3D shapes that give that driver total mental transparency in as many conditions as possible.
The Art benefits from hundreds of mistakes and watching injury patterns develop.
Working with high forces and movement in three dimensions at the Human Machine Interface (HMI) goes beyond the patently obvious finger flutes and wing combos.
It also takes astute observation, out-side-the-box creativity, and a disciplined experimental approach with driver input to arrive at the optimal 3D solution at the HMI. When that happens, the man-machine interface truly disappears...and the woman-machine interface does too. ;-)
Michael Schumacher's PersonaGrip custom-molded steering wheel was used to win the Formula One Championship in '95 with Benetton (Ser.#159/F1-001). It truly pioneered today's ProPak Program.
It was the first wheel that was converted using the same basic, quick turnaround Ship & Return method described on this website.
When the design is mentally transparent, drivers often claim that they can make the car feel like an extension of their own thoughts in the corners.
One driver told Dellis that he imagined the right-front tire being his right hand, and the left-front tire was his left hand. He then said, "I feel like I can just claw my way around the track with this molded wheel."
This used to happen sometime after their second or third remold dial-in, and they've had a chance to race it for a few race weekends.
Drivers also reported that there's a certain mental "sweetspot" when using PersonaGrip steering wheels that gets developed over time.
If all this sounds like nonsense to you, it's because you are still applying the old rules to steering wheels....PersonaGrip's record speaks for itself.
For this reason, ProPak Programs are now year-long programs where professional drivers take PersonaGrip steering wheels directly into competition without fear of any limitations on development or their safety.
