RMR AX SCHOOL and AX

SATURDAY APRIL 27, 2019 and SUNDAY APRIL 28, 2019

Mark your calendars for our first autocross event of 2019.  Both the autocross school and the autocross will be held at the Front Range Airport where there is plenty of room to setup a long course with a lot of interesting autocross features.  Twists, Turns, and Slaloms all await you to improve and challenge your driving skills.

If you are new to the club, new to your Porsche or other favorite four wheel means of transport, want to improve your driving technique or simply want to enjoy your Porsche, we encourage you to register for the Autocross School  and Car Control Clinic on Saturday April 27 and the full Autocross on Sunday April 28.

Autocross is a performance driving experience conducted in a safe environment at relatively low speeds – typically 2nd gear.  It is also a lot fun and provides small doses of adrenaline rush that will keep you smiling for days.  Come out to the school on Saturday and learn to autocross with our experienced instructors.    You will gain additional confidence in your driving ability, learn the limits of your car’s braking system, practice correct seating, hand, feet and vision positions, as well as push and perhaps exceed the limits of your tire’s adhesion capabilities.

By the way, autocross is a huge social event and a great time to meet new club members and visit with friends.

Autocross School and Car Control Clinic

Our excellent club instructors will work with you by providing plenty of driving time through three car control exercises.  Learn about car balance through a slalom course, throttle steering around two skid pads, and threshold braking and acceleration in a unique triangle exercise.  All of this in the morning followed by an afternoon of learning how to autocross using these skills on a full scale autocross course.

If you are a PCA member and have a licensed 16 or 17 year old relative they may participate in both the School and the Autocross.  All minors will have an instructor in the car and the skills they learn are directly applicable to the street.

Autocross on Sunday

On Sunday, we return to the Front Range Airport facility to run against the clock!   Are you the quickest air cooled 911, Boxster, Turbo, 914, Cayenne?  Run times are around a minute, which is a long time to hold your breath if you haven’t attended the school to learn how to breath!  This event is a great chance to try out your new found skills from the school and to compete against your friends.
