Women’s Car Control & Autocross Clinic
October 15 -- Qualcomm West Lot -- Register Online at http://sdbmwcca.motorsportreg.com
Improve your driving skills, increase your confidence, and experience your car’s capabilities in a fun, safe and stress-free environment. The day will consist of three main events: classroom sessions, car-control exercises and autocross practice. We’ll discuss proper hand, mirror and seating positions, looking ahead, cornering techniques, oversteer and understeer, accident avoidance and much more. One of our driving instructors will be in your car with you for all the driving sessions. Our car control exercises will include a simulated emergency lane change, a slalom, threshold braking and a decreasing-radius corner. After lunch, we’ll do all the exercises in succession during the autocross practice.
