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

  • Allegheny Region PCA proudly presents the 2017 Tire Rack Street Survival program in Pittsburgh!
  • 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 students 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.
  • It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!  Thanks to the support of The Tire Rack, Michelin, Enterprise and the BWM Car Club of America Foundation we can offer this event at the very low cost of $75.00. Space is limited.
