    05/05/2012 - AutoX School @ Regency Furniture Stadium

    REGISTER HERE: http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.c...D16DF2350F2702

    REGISTRATION OPENS: 02/11/2012 @ 8:00AM
    REGISTRATION CLOSES: 05/04/2012 @ 12:00PM (OR WHEN FULL)
    MAXIMUM REGISTRATION: 20 PARTICIPANTS
    COST: $80.00

    Autocross is a safe, low-speed motorsport where competitors drive against the clock to turn in the best times as they navigate a driving course defined by orange parking cones in a large, open lot. Our NCC Autocross school is the best way for new and budding autocross participants to learn more about autocross and improve their driving performance through in-car instruction by some of the best instructors in the Washington DC area. Come join us for a fun and educational day filled with safe but adrenaline raising motorsport.

    Sessions will include a variety of topics to help novice participants better understand what goes on in a day of autocross, and what they will likely be seeing and hearing around them as they participate in the motorsport. Instruction on how to prepare both the car and driver for autocross, how to register, tech inspect, work a course, and safety topics will get you up to speed with the day-of operations for participating in autocross. Then, drivers will learn how to make the most of their runs by examining techniques like walking the course to determine good run lines, throttle modulation (your gas pedal is not an on-off switch!), and when to brake. Discussions will also cover basic handling conditions such as 'oversteer' and 'understeer' you may have heard of, and how to correct them, and try to prevent these issues to give you your best runs.

    It's time to put all of your newfound knowledge to work. Get ready to buckle up and drive, as you will get run after run to put your training and skills to the test with a series of handling and stopping challenges as you gear up to run a full autocross course. With one of our excellent instructors at your side, you will continue to receive guidance to improve your performance and lower your lap times. As you learn how to pick your turn-in points, choose your braking zones and work the throttle wisely, you will notice a consistent improvement in how your car handles confidently and smartly through the sea of cones.

    There is no better way to get started in autocross than with the NCC Autocross school. Whether you've done a few events in the past, or if you've never been out to a course before, you'll find the program educational and the skills you learn useful not just on the autocross course, but for all of the driving you do. Our staff is ready to answer any questions you will have and will ensure you get personalized attention and instruction to overcome any concerns or issues. We are ready to introduce you to the fast and fun world of autocross, are you ready to join? Register now as space in our schools are limited to ensure small class groups and personalized instruction.

    I'm looking forward to this event! BTW, I don't have an approved helmet. Will there be some loaners available that I can borrow for the day? Thanks! -Andy

    Hi Andy,

    You'll have a great time at the school.

    And yes, the club has plenty of loaner helmets for you to use.

    If you don't mind a freakin heavy steel jack, I can bring my low-profile Craftsman that I keep as a backup.

    Looking forward to Saturday.

    I have not been to the area of the Stadium. So pardon the prosaic questions: Is there something around the parking lot where we could buy food/lunch or cold drinks ? Bathrooms ?

    Thanks,
    Andy22

    We will be providing food for all school participants - so no need to go searching elsewhere.

    As far as bathrooms, we are trying to confirm that they will be open at the stadium - hold tight while we get a solid answer.

    See you Saturday.
