Winter Driving Dynamics
Every winter we all deal with the same issues of driving in difficult, often treacherous, road conditions just to get through our daily routine. Now Pittsburgh International Race Complex offers a "hands-on" instructional course that will help dispel your fears of driving in winter conditions.
This course offers professional classroom instruction on the vehicle dynamics area associated with winter driving, You will spend the majority of the day behind the wheel of your vehicle on our expansive VDA. Our professional instructors will work with you one-on-one, showing you how to assess conditions and then respond appropriately to slippery or otherwise dangerous situations. We will address front wheel skids, rear wheel skids, off-road recoveries, and turning and braking at the same time. You will develop an understanding of ABS and how it works to help you control your vehicle.
We will take you through a step by step process of skid control and collision avoidance to help you better your driving skills in less than suitable conditions... all the time helping you to become more confident of your ability to address winter driving situations.
Also, at the end of the day, we'll have you hone your newly learned skills in a safe yet fun environment by setting up a driving course that will expose you to a variety of winter-like conditions... an opportunity for you to test yourself and your car. So... don't let winter weather control you any longer... come learn from the pros how to deal with the worst that mother nature throws at us.
You will be using your own vehicle for this class so you will become more comfortable with how that vehicle reacts in winter conditions.
