2014 Club Members Car Control Clinic
« on: March 27, 2014, 07:08:52 AM »
  SoCal Club Members 2014 Car Control Clinic
 October  4, 2014


: : : : : CLICK HERE TO BUY YOUR CCC TICKETS : : : : :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 sponsored by our Southern California Viper Club.   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.   

One again a  huge Thanks to Randy Tribolet for getting us set up again with the Team manager of Megan Racing.  Naoki Kobayashi.  They will be bringing out 3 of their instructors to help us learn the basics of Car Control through the lessons of Drifting.    " I know some folks are a little reluctant to burn up their street tires and for $50 they will let you take out their drift car and smoke em all you want. I spoke to Naoki today and he said that they would try to bring two rental cars this time. Also, their cars are set up for the drifting and a bit easier to control in a drift. It's a great way to get a feel for it. Last year, many of us rented the car first to get the feel and then took our vipers out afterward. I think that the best way to do it. They bring a truck load of tires and expect to go through some"  Randy.

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.

This year we will be focusing on Auto-x and this year it will likely have a few surprises in the course setup.

Glenn,
You might want to say something about the rental drift cars in the event description. I know some folks are a little reluctant to burn up their street tires and for $50 they will let you take out their drift car and smoke em all you want. I spoke to Naoki today and he said that they would try to bring two rental cars this time. Also, their cars are set up for the drifting and a bit easier to control in a drift. It's a great way to get a feel for it. Last year, many of us rented the car first to get the feel and then took our vipers out afterward. I think that the best way to do it. They bring a truck load of tires and expect to go through some.
It's a blast!

That's a great thing to bring up Randy.  My tires were shot at that time last year, so I went ahead and attempted drifting. There is burnt and melted rubber seemingly permanently bonded to my car now.  For $50, I think I'll abuse their car.

Yes, we still have plenty of time.  The big blast announcement will be coming out soon.  This is by far the best Club event of the year to play and learn what your Viper can do.  Stay tuned and mark your Calendar. We will have plenty of shade and lot's of cool drinks for all.  October 4th 2014 8)

Megan Racing Drift Cars

I know some folks are a little reluctant to burn up their street tires.  For $50 Megan Racing will let you take out one of their drift cars and smoke em all you want in the drift area. Lets all start committing now for the Car Control Clinic. Thanks 8)
