About this event
Sunday, April 16th, 8:00AM- 5:00PM
The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® 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 teen students (this class is only being offered to students aged 15-19) 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.
The day is split into multiple 1-1.5 hour slots rotating two groups of students between the classroom and hands on driving. The student never drives alone, an experience driving coach is present in the passenger seat guiding the student at all times. The student will experience what it feels likes to brake, steer and control the car in a safe and controlled simulated emergency situation.
It's about more than driving - it's about LIVING!
