Car Control Clinic September 7, 2013
« on: August 05, 2013, 08:18:10 AM »
Car Control Clinic
Auto Club Speedway, Fontana  CA
September 7th, 2013


The So Cal Viper Club will be returning back to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana California to utilize their huge parking lot to stage our Member's only Car Control Clinic.    This has always been a very popular event for new members as well as long time members.   It is the ideal place to take your Viper out and push it to the limit to get a full understanding of what happens when you cross the threshold of tire traction and become a passenger trying to gain control of the Viper.   

A huge Thanks to Randy Tribolet for getting us set up with the Team manager of Megan Racing.  Naoki Kobayashi (google his name) has been part of the US Drift Industry since it was introduced back in 2000 and his team competes on the Formula Drift circuit.  They will be bringing out 3 of their instructors to help us learn the basics of Car Control through the lessons of Drifting.   

Whether your goal is to learn how to full on drift your Viper or simply get the "feel" of  having the back end start to slide out and what to do to catch it, this is the ideal opportunity to come out and learn.

We will have 3 Stations set up with an instructor at each one to help drivers learn the basics.
The fourth station will be our Auto-x and this year it will likely have a few surprises in the course setup.   ;)

What's going on Dan?  You're not moving out of state?  And I know you're not selling your Vipers.
