ARPCA's first Auto-X school at PittRace!
Allegheny Region Porsche Club of America will host our first Autocross (Auto-X) School at Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PittRace) Saturday May 28, 2016.
Autocross is a fun, safe, timed event where you maneuver your car through a cone course traveling at speeds up to 55 mph all while competing against your friends for the fastest time of the day. Don’t let the 55 mph limit deceive you into thinking that autocross is easy, it is a practiced skill that can take years to develop, learn how to see the correct driving line and keep your car on the limit all while attacking a different element every few second. You can typically expect to make anywhere from 15-20 major steering inputs all within a minute or less on a given course. The skills that are learned through autocross will translate to many other future motor events such as Driver Education days out on the track.
This School will teach students what to expect at an Auto Cross. We are structuring the school get as many runs as possible. In order the provide superior 1 on 1 instruction and many runs for the participants, we are limiting the number of students to thirty-five(35). This event will sell out, so register early.
Any street legal car can participate (please no SUVs). Helmets are required, but good news, the club has good supply of loaner helmets. Reserve a helmet when you register.
