NEQ is proud to announce a winter driving school in upstate New York during the month of Feburary, 2014.
The current tentative date is February 8, 2014.
As in the previous years we will be working with AMEC with our event held on Saturday prior to their races on Sunday. Since AMEC has not selected a location for their race on the weekend in question we will announce the location as soon as we know. As winter school veterans know, flexibility is key for these events. We however expect that the event will be at one of the usual lakes that AMEC uses which are Lake Algonquin in Wells NY, Caroga Lake
NY, Warner’s Lake or possibly Canadarago Lake, south of Herkimer NY.
As always with lake based winter events we are at mercy of the weather and we may be forced to change the schedule according to Mother Nature’s whim. Our partners at AMEC are expert in determining the best time and place to get on the ice and we count on them to make the right decisions regarding where and when we will be able to hold an event.
We will open registration on MotorSportsReg on Thursday January 16th at noon and close on Saturday the 18th at midnight. We will keep everyone informed by email of changes which could include both date and venue.
Don’t be concerned about logging into MotorSportsReg on the stroke of the opening time to secure a spot at the school. We are instituting a lottery system and will randomly select the participants from the registrant roster. Everyone’s status will be “waitlisted” initially and you will be notified by email status update if you are selected. Once registration closes we will run the lottery and notify the “winners”. If we are able to run a second school this season those not selected for the first school will be given preference for the second school should one be scheduled.
The cost remains at $100 for the day driving your own car with instructors in the passenger seat. You will also have opportunities to ride with instructors. Lunch as well as coffee and pastry at registration are included.
Note that this year we are only allowing winter specific tires: Studded or Non-Studded snow tires.
These events are held on lake ice with areas for car control exercises including a skid pad area, and slalom area as well as a 1.0 – 1.5 mile road course on the ice. Facilities will be very basic. Plan to spend the day outside. The only place to get warm other than lunch will be your car.
Toilet facilities may be whatever nature provides depending on the venue.
We are excited again to be working with AMEC again and expect conditions to be very good this season.
