The Tire Rack Street Survival program hosted by the Kansas Region of Sports Car Club of America Foundation is scheduled to be held at
Heartland Park Topeka on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 8am – 5pm. Breakfast and lunch will be served to students, parents and volunteers. We encourage parents to stay for the day and be observers in the classroom and at the driving exercises. Sometimes they even help us keep the course cones upright.
This advanced driving program is for young drivers, 15-21 and the young at heart. We will be teaching skid recovery, braking and turning in panic situations, steering around problem situations, and emergency lane changes at road speeds (up to 45 mph). There is also a classroom component reviewing these driving exercises.
Consumer Reports made an excellent video for The Tire Rack Street Survival program and each year one of these young adult driving programs is held at their testing facility. You can view the video at: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2011/05/street-survival-teens-learn-life-saving-driving-lessons-at-consumer-reports-test-track/index.htm .
If a parent would like to register their student they can go to www.streetsurvival.org and will be directed to the registration website. This school is only $75 per student. We can keep the costs down because the coaches and staff are volunteering their time and skill set to help kids stay safer on our roads.
We only have room for 30 students. After 30 registrations a waitlist will form and students will be contacted on the waitlist if another student is unable to attend.
If a parent just can’t afford the fee they can call me to work something out. Currently we can’t offer to many scholarships.
This school comes once a year to Topeka. Help us teach students the skills they can use to keep themselves safer on our roads.
