AROSC Apr 16-17 Driving School, Streets of Willow

High Performance Driving School
April 16 – 17, 2011
Your car. Your helmet. 2 days of track, skidpad and classroom.
Streets of Willow, at Willow Springs Raceway, Rosamond, CA
3 groups: Street Performance, TT (Novice/Advanced), Race

The High Performance Driving School is a chance to test the limits of your vehicle and yourself. No flashing lights, no tickets, no worries! In addition to having a great time, you will be learning the skills that will make you a better driver on the track and on the street. You will have class time, skidpad exercises (a great experience in learning car control) as well as a lot of track time.

Our High Performance Driving School, run by the AROSC, has been in continuous operation for over 20 years.
• No racing belts required for Street Performance Group.
• Instructors will ride in your car.
• All cars are welcome; you just need a desire to improve your skills and to have a little fun in the process.
• In Race class you will have more starts in 1 day than you would see in 2 years.

Details at: AROSC-HPD Home Page

We now have more information available:
AROSC SW Apr 2011

And an entry form.

When we took our 240Z apart in November, it was our plan to have it together and ready for the driving school in April. It's now 120 pounds lighter and still in pieces. A bit of sanding and painting to do yet. Then it will go back together.

A few questions about the driving school and car preperation for the school:

Can I take the race school without taking the time trial school first? (I took the Street School a few years ago and have an AROSC time trial license).

Does the car (and driver) need to be prepped for race events to take the race school?


Thanks,

Peter

Race School requirements

You can attend the Race School without doing any of the Advanced Time Trial Schools. HOWEVER, you better call the Director of Instruction to talk your way into Race School. With a Time Trial license you stand a good chance of talking your way in. Oh, throwing around lots of cash helps a lot
The car entry requirements are the same as those for Race.
Roll Bar, SFI rated suit, 2005 Snell Helmet, window net or arm restraings, and a few more items.
Read everything about the High Performance Driving School at: AROSC Driving Schools
Getting thru Race School will help you a lot incase you want to enter the May 14-15 Buttonwillow Enduro.
See you at School

School Registration looks good

As of Sun Apr 3 we have 43 Students entered: 10 thru snail mail, and 33 thru MotorSportReg.
Street Performance has closed. We need a few more racers and time trialers.
And at least 1 super car is entered in Race.
Come on out and see what it is. . . .
Remember, registration is now on line at:
MotorsportReg.com : Online registration management tools for driving and social events

Online registration is great. It will definitely help get more drivers to come out.

I am going, just haven't sent in the entry form! Since I am competition director, I guess I can register late???

With all the wet weather we have had, maybe we will get lucky and have some rain for the school!

A bump to get some of you thinking about attending.
Edit 4-2: Spoke to Headmaster Steve. Street Performance is about filled up. We need a few more Race and more Advanced Time Trial. Those of you who think you know how to drive, but really don't. Those of you who drive your guts out and still get passed. Those of you with inconsistent lap times. "Drive Fast Now, Ask Me How !".

How can you go wrong?
2 days of track, skidpad and classroom
An instructor in your car and driving your car if you want
A slower track to practice technique with few bad consequences of mistakes
Away from the office and family for 2 days
You get to stay in Lancaster (oh, wait, cross than one off)
Other than that, how can you go wrong?
Taxes are due, so why not ease the pain with a little recreation?

On-line registration at: http://www.motorsportreg.com/
and look for an AROSC event in April

I wish my motor was ready. It still needs a few more bolts and nuts....
You all have a lot of fun!

We are full up in Street Performance, but still have room in Race & TT groups.

Does anyone know if there are realistic chances for a CCW-direction session at the end of Sat or Sunday? Maybe even the longer configuration with most of the speed-controlling cones removed? Curiously, jeff
