Tire Rack Street Survival
Tire Rack Street Survival July 11th
Registration is open for our first Tire Rack Street Survival School of the year. The school will be held on Sunday, July 11th at Campgaw Reservation Ski Area in Mahwah. It teaches young drivers age 16-21 important skills that aren’t generally taught in driver education courses. It combines on-course activities that simulate various emergency situations in a controlled environment with classroom sessions to reinforce the skills and encourage good judgement while driving. Tire Rack Street Survival is a program of the BMW CCA Foundation, a 501(c) (3) public charity. Students are expected to arrive at 8:30 and the school will end at about 4:00. A pizza lunch is included. Cost is $95, and the school is open to any 16-21 year old with a drivers permit or license. Students are encouraged to bring the car they normally drive. You can register by following the link at www.streetsurvival.org once the school is listed on the schedule. Schools generally fill quickly and we don’t control the registration locally, so don’t wait too long if you have a student. We plan to run a second school later in the year.
We still need staff for this event. If you are an intermediate or higher Driver School Student or if you have Autocross experience you are welcome to take the short training course found in the “Become a Coach” section at the bottom of the www.streetsurvival.org website. It should take less than an hour and reviews the exercises and their purpose, as well as the terminology used in the program. Once you complete the training send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org asking to be included in our list of coaches.
