Thunderhill Raceway & the National Auto Sport Association have partnered up to created a program designed to teach the basics, and some advanced, driving and car control techniques.   This course is largely HANDS-ON, meaning that the students learn the most while sitting behind the wheel.


We have developed hands-on exercises for teens to develop car control and proper reaction in emergency situations.  While there is some classroom time, the teens spend most of the day behind the wheel!  It is guaranteed fun, which makes for an extremely good learning environment.



Some of the skills the students will learn are skid control, limit of traction, braking, parallel parking, driving in reverse, merging into traffic, and even defensive driving techniques.  The curriculum has been designed to expose both new, and experienced drivers, to different road and driving conditions, in a controlled environment with a NASA High Performance Driving Instructor in the passenger seat of the student's car.  The time to practice these Life Saving Car Control Techniques is not while driving on the city streets or highways, but at a facility, and using a program, designed to tech how to react to these situations.


The drivers will experience first hand

  • What it feels like if your car starts to slide and how to keep it under control.

  • What it is like having two wheels go off the pavement and how to safely bring it back onto the road.

  • What the car feels like under panic braking

  • And MUCH more

The students and parents will also have the opportunity to see what it is like from the passenger seat of an instructor's car, and how some of the safety techniques apply.

All that is required to participate is a vehicle in good condition, either a learner's permit or drivers license, closed toed shoes, and a willingness to have a fun day while learning how to save lives and become a better driver.  Note- helmets are required for a portion of this program and loaner helmets are available FREE of charge.

Parents must attend with their student.

All students under 18 years old must have a parental waiver signed.
