Please consider joining us at our first Driver Education event for 2016 at Arroyo Seco Raceway (A.K.A. Arroyo Seco Motorplex), located just East of Deming, NM on Saturday, February 27, 2016 to Sunday, February 28, 2016.
The facility is located about 3-1/2 hours drive from Tucson AZ, via U.S. Highway 10. Although the track has been there for a while, the surface is in good condition. The course itself is very challenging and doubly so because we run in one direction on Saturday and the other on Sunday. Registration opens on 12 December 2015. Registration Fee is $210 for 2 days or $160 for 1 day if you sign up before 1 Feb. Use discount code "ASR" at check out to receive $40 off your registration fee.
The heart of this event, of course, is the driver education efforts that are extended to SAR and other PCA members and a few participants from other car clubs. All makes and models of automobiles are invited. We have available many instructor-qualified SAR, and Arizona Region members with PCA National Certified Instructor status. The organization of the run groups allows for as many novice, intermediate and advance groups as needed to ensure that a quality experience can be had by all attendees. Our novice (first time drivers) run groups are small and other groups are appropriately sized, depending upon the participation in each group.
Participants attend a drivers meeting with track operations and safety the primary topic. Following that, we have a sit down, indoor chalk talk to lay out the track map, the "line" and a discussion of appropriate driving techniques of each corner. That meeting is followed by parade laps at greatly reduced speeds. This gives the newcomer a chance to assess possible hazards and to become oriented with the course layout, flag and emergency-personnel stations, and the track entry and exit points. The run sessions then begin immediately, with instructors accompanying all novice students. We regularly keep to our set schedule and stay on time. Our sessions are typically 20-minutes long.
