The Tire Rack SCCA Starting Line school kicked off its 2015 season in Los Angeles, California recently. A partnership between the Sports Car Club of America and Tire Rack, the school allows enthusiasts a professional, all-inclusive entry into the world of performance driving.
While at the school, you’ll develop key concepts of all forms of motorsports while working with a professional performance driving instructor certified by Evolution Performance Driving School. Along with receiving instructions from accomplished autocrossers, the Starting Line package also includes:
- SCCA membership
- Regional event entry
- National Series event entry
- Magazine subscriptions
Before you take the course, your vehicle will need to pass a technical inspection and will be checked to ensure it has functioning brakes, throttle return, properly installed and tightened wheels and that all loose items have been removed. Tire preparation is also key, as underinflated tires can results in increased wear and even damage while autocrossing. To keep tires in good condition, and to give your vehicle a quicker response, students are generally advisable to inflate their tires 5-10psi more than what is recommended for normal driving.
The class is not only educational, but a ton of fun. Take a look at what some participants have said about their experience with the program:
“It's amazing how much faster you can get in just one day with the direct feedback from the instructors. What's more, everyone had a blast playing with cars all day. It was worth every penny.”
“I've always been into racing and this is really the first time I've gotten to experience it firsthand. The instructors were great, I learned a lot through out the day and was able to put it all together on the course they set up for us. Over all great experience and tons of fun. Would recommend it to anyone.”
