On Saturday September 7th the region will be conducting a safe driving training course hosted by the Portland section.
A full day of driving skills, plus lunch is included.
 
  • Location is The Southwest Washington Fairgrounds at 2555 N National Ave Chehalis WA 98532
  • Saturday September 7th 9am-4pm
  • Cost is 35.00 for members, 45.00 for non-members and teens are free. 15.00 for non-participants for lunch only. (ticket sales coming soon)
 
National Driving Instructor Jason Burton will join us to conduct the event.
 
In the morning there will be a classroom session covering defensive driving skills, followed by one-on-one instruction
in your own car. Then we will apply the knowledge learned in the classroom on mini-courses, practicing Evasive Action, Slalom, Braking & Turning, and ABS Braking. 
 
In the afternoon, the action heats up and you’ll continue to practice all your new knowledge on the autocross course where you can further build your skills. If you are new to autocross, don’t worry, you won’t be alone. Think of it as a small race course with cones that will guide you (and an instructor if you’d like more guidance). 
 
SD/SF Certificates will be issued certifying your completion of the program, and prizes will be awarded for the best autocross times. At the end of the day you’ll have confidence in knowing what your car can do, and what you are capable of doing with your car.
 
The skills to be taught in the driving clinic are:
  • How to make sure the vehicle is mechanically sound and safe to drive.
  • How to set the seats and mirrors and position the head and hands of the driver for maximum control of the vehicle.
  • How to accelerate, steer, and stop the vehicle in extreme situations.
  • How to steer with the eyes and continuously scan and evaluate the driving environment in order to drive smoothly and safely.
  • How to develop a set of attitudes that will enable the driver to anticipate circumstances that will require response and determine the proper response for the circumstances.
Come join us for this fun and educational event!
