- Location:Tire Rack Facility in South Bend,IN
Situated at 7101 Vorden Parkway, conveniently located
near Indiana Toll Road (I-80/90) and US-31.
- Time: 8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.
- Event Type: This event is for new drivers, seasoned drivers as well as
those who want to improve their driving skills. The one day event
is spent learning, practicing and experiencing car dynamics through
a series of 3 key skills:
1) 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.
2) Threshold Braking - Learn how to control your car in an emergency
situation. You will understand more about your car's capabilities and
how to manage them. Learn how to successfully maneuver around obsticles
(just as if you have a deer in the headlights) while slowing your car.
3) Skid-Pad Activities - Drive on a skid-pad where you will have
the opportunity to experience your car breaking traction and then learn
how to regain traction in a safe environment. Feel the balance and learn
how to steer your car with the throttle.
The Tire Rack Facility is the perfect venue for young drivers,
seasoned drivers and drivers young at heart, to have the opportunity
to practice these maneuvers in a safe environment at the performance
limit of their car. It is a great first step or review for those who
want to autocross or drive on a race track. Even if you never participate
in one of these programs, many of the skills you learn will be useful
on public highways.
