This is a unique and exclusive Car Control event designed for our intermediate and advanced drivers as well as our instructors. 

DO YOU PARK YOUR TRACK CAR WHEN IT RAINS? Here is an opportunity to get comfortable with exploring your abilities with your car in the wet in a safe lower speed environment.

Essentially this will be an intensive day to develop AND practice those, 'at the limit' skills we are learning and teaching on the race track. We are specifically focusing on this group of drivers based on restrictions for COVID -19 and so we will determine attendance based on either your profile or your driving resume.

This event will be held in a large parking lot at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, using plastic pylons/cones, to provide a safe learning environment for these maneuvers. The skid pad area is operated under a sprinkler system to practice the exercises at low speed and also to reduce tire wear. This is a driver education school and is not practice for any racing or speed contest.

Description of Exercises

THEORY - The day begins with a "chalk talk", where our expert instructors explain about vehicle dynamics, the techniques drivers will practice and summarize the exercises for the day. 

SKID PAD - The practical exercises include spending part of the day on our skid pad and figure eight courses, learning about: understeer, oversteer, steering with the throttle, secondary effects, "the line", and power-slides. These basic building blocks are key to learning how to bring your car under control, when the unexpected happens.

BRAKING - The braking exercises allow drivers to experiment braking with ABS, threshold braking, braking and turning, and both single and double emergency lane changes. While these life saving accident avoidance maneuvers prepare drivers for real-world situations they directly translate to the race track too.

COMBINED EXERCISE - At the end of the day the drivers get to put together all the skills that they have practiced through numerous fun runs through our Combined Exercise course. Drivers will demonstrate braking while turning, inducing rotation, countering understeer and oversteer, and other techniques by navigating through this challenging and diabolical course.

Information for Drivers

There are a very limited number of student slots available for this event.

Plan to arrive at NHMS by 8:00am and to leave by 4:30pm at the latest.
