About this event

Allegheny Region PCA proudly presents the 2017 Tire Rack Street Survival program in Pittsburgh!
Supported locally by Moon Township Ford and PITT OHIO Express.
Please note that Porsche Club of America (local host for this school) does not allow anyone under the age of 16 to participate. Drivers 16 years old and older who hold a valid drivers license, that have no restrictions during the hours the school takes place are eligible to participate. (i.e. If the participant is allowed to drive to and from the event without an adult required to be in the car with them).. Updated 2-28-17
The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a "hands-on" driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.
Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.
It's about more than driving - it's about LIVING!
All Schools $75.
This event is open all drivers meeting the minimum requirements and you do not have to be a member of ARPCA.

Vehicles with modifications that alter the center of gravity (i.e. lift kits) are not acceptable.
High Center of Gravity Vehicles (HCGs) such as SUVs, SAVs, Trucks, Jeep-type vehicles, and Minivans will need to be verified. The older HCGs without electronic stability control (not just the electronic traction control) will not be accepted.
HCG vehicles may still be limited with respect to the exercises in which they are allowed to participate based on local venue conditions.
Please look up the HCG vehicle safety score. You can research the safety ratings that a vehicle has received at www.edmunds.com Input the vehicle and year and look at the safety rating in the upper right corner of the web page.
This review is for HCG vehicles only. Passenger cars do not need to be reviewed.
Any vehicle with a listing of 3 stars or more out of 5 in the Roll Over test will be allowed to participate in our class. We are concerned about the Roll Over test on the HCG only. We are not concerned about the crash test ratings.
Any HCG vehicle listed as “not tested” in the Roll Over test will not be allowed to participate.
ALL COMMUNICATION REGARDING THE SCHOOL WILL BE SENT TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS ON THE REGISTRATION LISTED AS THE STUDENTS.
