For 2017, we're changing our school format a bit in order to further broaden its appeal. Participants can elect to participate through one of two streams.

The first stream, The School Stream, is aimed those who are either new to performance driving, or are just getting started. The second stream, the Tune Stream, is aimed at those who want some time to fine tune their inputs, their cars, or simply shake things down. Each stream is described in more detail below:

School Stream

Your day will start with some classroom orientation to the basics like seating position, vehicle dynamics, line selection, and much more. You'll also get a basic primer on how autocross events work and how to approach them. From there, you'll move to in-car exercises including emergency lane-change, slalom, and a peanut-style skid pad that will give you the opportunity to put that theory to use. From there, you'll like it all together for some runs through an autocross course, giving the opportunity to react further apply your learning.

We'll supply lunch and give you the opportunity to meet and network with some of the area's most active, friendly, and quick drivers. Yes, part of the agenda is to get you hooked.
