Hey all, the North Atlantic chapter of ACNA is running a one-day
driving clinic Saturday. This is a collection of the 'exercises'
many clubs use to teach car control skills. Slaloms, skidpad,
braking box, lane-change/avoidance, etc in a large parking lot up at
NHIS in Loudon, NH (about 20-25 minutes from Concord, NH).
The club had teenage/inexperienced drivers in mind, but if you've
wanted to dabble and get your feet wet with some of what a full-
fledged track even is about, this is as good a way as any (BMW club
actually requires something similar before they let you on the track
at all!) I believe some demonstrations are planned- like how holding
a cell phone interferes with your ability to control your car :-)
Cost is $100, you do NOT need to be a member, and any licensed driver
is welcome. Learner's permits are OK, but ONLY while doing the
exercises, as NH doesn't recognize learner's permits...and your teen
should have in-car experience before this clinic. You don't need to
"pre-tech" your car like you would for a full-fledged track event; we
do a basic check of your car when you get there.
Full details (along with the specifics on learners-permit drivers)
and registration are here:
Feedback of any kind is welcome, email me if you have any questions
or need help.
