About this event


Saturday, October 2nd, 2021, 8:00AM-4:00PM

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® program 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.

It's about more than driving - it's about LIVING!

Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

Event requirements

All participants - instructors, staff, students and families -  must answer a question about their COVID-19 vaccination status as part of the registration process at the school:

- I am fully vaccinated as of the event start date (meaning I am at least 14 days beyond my final vaccination shot.)

- I am not fully vaccinated as of the event start date.

- I decline to disclose my vaccination status as of the event start date. (Note: choosing this option will classify your vaccination status as not fully vaccinated as of the event start date)

Student/Instructor pairing requires information about your vaccination status for COVID-19.

Depending on the State of Connecticut and the City of East Hartford guidelines in force on the day of the event, face masks may be required indoors.  Usage of face masks inside vehicles will depend on the individual student and coach.

Parents are encouraged to stay!  Please arrive early.

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.
