Fast Facts

  • 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.
