Saturday, May10th, 201, North Country Region will hold a car control clinic on the parking
lot of New Hampshire Motor Speedway from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM with a noon pizza party hosted by NCR.
The Car Control Clinic (CCC) is a non-competitive event intended to allow drivers to experience the attributes of car control at and beyond the limit, in a safe and controlled environment. It helps drivers improve their driving skills while learning about car dynamics. The CCC serves a dual purpose in that it prepares students for Autocross and Driver Education events plus it teaches skills useful in everyday driving situations. The CCC is held in a large parking lot at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, using plastic cones, to provide a safe learning environment for these low-to-moderate-speed maneuvers.
Take a look at last year's event.
This clinic is designed for all drivers, including ages 16 & 17, with a valid driver’s license and parental consent (sorry, no driver permits). The intent of the clinic is to help drivers become safer and more confident through knowledge and experience
The clinic will cover the following:
- Seating position
- Hand position
- Mental preparation
- Car dynamics & theory
- Car maintenance check
- Emergency Braking
Each student will get in-car instruction from an experienced NCR instructor.
The emphasis of this clinic is car control, not racing or competition. In that spirit, most car makes and models will be allowed to participate. No trucks, SUVs, (Cayennes excepted) or vans allowed. If you are uncertain, please email the event Chairmen beforehand, their decision will be final. The event is limited to 30 students.
Note: Car numbers are not required for this event.
