Saturday June 17th – 8:30AM – 4:30PM – Tire Rack Street Survival Car Control Clinic 

ARPCA members know any New/Newer Drivers?

  • ARPCA is hosting our first driver school geared to new teen drivers.  If you know of new licensed drivers, son, daughter, grand-child or neighbor please let them know about a fun way to learn more about handling their car.  They do not need to be an ARPCA member!
  • Primary emphasis of Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about handling limits and how you can control them. Students will become more observant
    of traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves.
  • It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!  Thanks to support of Tire Rack, Michelin, Enterprise, BWM CCA Foundation, Pitt Ohio Express and Moon Township Ford we offer this event at a very low cost of $75.00. Space is limited.

Registration Process

Driving event registration is conducted online through MotorsporReg (MSR) – http://arpca.motorsportreg.com.

The earlier you sign up the better we are able to plan – there is limited downside.  When registering for an event you will be asked for a credit card.  We will not charge your credit card for the event until approximately 30 days prior to event.  Due to significant track deposits, each event has a specific cancellation policy which can be found in the MSR registration.  Keep your data current!  It is important that we have a current valid email address for you. Please remember to update your information in the future should there be any changes.

What happens if the event is sold out? You are put on a wait list. Both Instructor and Driver applications are accepted on a first come, first serve basis, provided all eligibility requirements have been met. There are a limited number of Student spaces available for our events. This number may vary from one venue to another. The event registrar will inform you of your status (confirmed or waitlist) before the event.
