Autocross School Announced For 2016

Autocross has been going strong for four years now.  As we enter our fifth season, we are excited to offer our first autocross school!

The autocross school will be for all levels of driving, and the instructors will be prepared to teach everyone from first-time students to seasoned, veteran drivers.  The school has been developed as much for the novice as for those who want to improve their existing skills.  During the one-day school, drivers will learn about and experience vehicle dynamics through a series of exercises: braking, turning, accelerating, understanding the course, and driver development.

The school is a perfect opportunity for drivers to explore what happens at the performance limit of their cars.  It is a great option for those who want to learn how to autocross, improve their autocross times, or even begin to prepare to drive in a future DE.  Every student will receive in-car instruction from one of our experienced autocross instructors.  The school emphasizes safety, fun, and speed.

The 2015 Autocross School will be held at the Vehicle Dynamics Area (VDA) at Pitt Race in Wampum, PA, on Saturday, May 28, 2016, and will follow the normal autocross schedule.

ARPCA Announces the 2016 Driver’s Education Event Schedule!

This year ARPCA will once again be conducting four Driver’s Education (DE) events.   DE events provide you an opportunity to drive your car on challenging and iconic racing circuits in a safe, controlled manner accompanied by a PCA-certified driving instructor.   Our DE events are all on the weekend with an invitation-only “Lapping Day” on Fridays for instructors and highly-experienced drivers.

Unsure if high-speed track driving is for you?   We offer a Car Control Clinic as well as a new Autocross School that are an excellent introduction to performance driving techniques conducted in a lower-speed environment.  Additional information on these events will be posted on ARPCA.com when details are available.

We are once again returning to our favorite circuits: Watkins Glen International, Pittsburgh International Race Complex and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Support material for track events (participant guide, track map, run-group assignments, etc.) will be posted when they are available.  Until then register early…
