NEQ is pleased to announce a special winter driving opportunity for advanced winter driving students and instructors on Warner's Lake February 14, 2015. This event is open to all NEQ instructors interested in honing their low friction skills and to experienced students who want to enjoy lapping sessions and explore the possibility of becoming a winter school instructor with us. Any advanced winter student who feels confident to drive solo and has attended 3 or more winter events is welcome whether or not you are interested in instructing.
The format will include a skid pad and open track. Instructors will also spend time discussing low friction teaching / coaching techniques to better serve our members
As in the previous years we will be working with AMEC with our event held on Saturday prior to their races on Sunday. Warner's Lake is located south and west of Albany NY near East Berne NY.
As always with lake based winter events we are at mercy of the weather and we may be forced to change the schedule according to Mother Nature’s whim. Our partners at AMEC are expert in determining the best time and place to get on the ice and we count on them to make the right decisions regarding where and when. Flexibility is the key.
Registration will open January 31, 2015, at noon, but don’t be concerned about logging into MotorSportsReg on the stroke of the opening time to secure a spot at the school. If demand exceeds our capacity we will use a lottery system similar to last year that will randomly select the participants from the registrant roster. Everyone’s status will be “waitlisted” initially and you will be notified by email status update if you are selected. Once registration closes we will run the lottery and notify the “winners”. The lottery applies to students only. We are planning to run a second school this season at Hunter Mountain. Those not selected for the first school will be given preference for the second school should one be scheduled. The Hunter Mountain two day school will be similar to the one run in January and will be open to all beginners through advanced.
As always we will keep you informed by email of changes which could include both date and venue.
The cost remains at $100 for the day driving your own car. You will also have opportunities to ride with instructors. Also, AMEC offers ride along during breaks in their racing on Sunday. Helmets are required but will be available on Sunday at no charge. AMEC has offers an introductory to racing program. Check out their website icerace.com for details
Note that this year we are only allowing winter specific tires: Studded or Non-Studded snow tires.
These events are held on lake ice with areas for car control exercises including a skid pad area, and slalom area as well as a 1.0 – 1.5 mile road course on the ice. Facilities will be very basic. Plan to spend the day outside. The only place to get warm other than lunch will be your car.
Toilet facilities may be whatever nature provides depending on the venue.
We are excited again to be working with AMEC again and expect conditions to be very good this season.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact Dave Klock the event master, via email at email@example.com
