About this event
Come learn more about you and your car!
Allegheny Region Porsche Club of
The Clinic can teach students what typical driving schools can't: what do do when something goes wrong in the car - and provide the opportunity to practice these maneuvers in a safe environment.
- Smooth steering on a Slalom course - Understand how to navigate your car smoothly through a set of cones. Recognize where you want your car to go. You will learn how to drive where the cones aren't!
- Threshold Braking - Learn how to control your car in an emergency braking situation. You will understand more about your car's capabilities and how to manage them. Learn how to successfully maneuver around obstacles (just as if you have a deer in the headlights) while slowing your car safely.
- Skid-Pad Activities - Drive on a skid pad to experience your car breaking traction and learn how to regain traction in a safe environment. Feel the balance and learn how to steer your car with the throttle.
Come make a weekend of fun as we're hosting an Autocross on Sunday. Apply what you've learned!
