Sunday May 10th, 2015 Skid Pad Session
This registration is for the Sunday May 10th, 2015 skid pad day. We'll be using the new Jefferson Circuit Skid Pad complete with irrigation and full-time access via the track.
We use the skid pad as an extremely beneficial tool for developing car control skills. We practice inducing, acknowledging and correcting from understeer ultimately transitioning into oversteer and developing comfortability and control in oversteer. Additionally we practice different accelaeration, braking and cone drills. We run at least two cars on the skid pad at a time and sometimes three depending on the level of skill per driver.
These skid pad days are broken up into two sessions; 8am-noon and noon-4pm. Advanced drivers are encouraged to sign up for the pm session. Those with less-than-great car control skills are encouraged to sign up for the am session. The cost is $90 person.
NOTE: Summit Point has tentatively booked us on the JC skid pad on May 9th and 10th but has reserved the right to cancel if they're able to rent the whole Jefferson track and skid pad before two weeks preceding the event which is April 25th in this case. If that were to happen, no registrant will be charged and our skid pad day will be rescheduled to a later date.
NOTE: this event is limited to the first 12 registrants. There will be 12 drivers in the AM session and 12 in the PM session. You're welcome to register for both if you like.
NOTE: these events always sell out and usually within a few days of open registration. If you're registering with a group of people or even with just one other person and your preference is to attend with that person/group, please email us ahead of time so that we can attempt to accommodate the request. If we do not know with whom you're registering, we can't possibly make certain to confirm both/all in your group. Of course this only matters if your preference is to attend only if all in your group are confirmed. Email.
It may be hot so be sure to bring plenty of hydration. Snacks and lunch are also a good idea and of course friends and guests are welcome.
