    For those wondering, 'what's Car Control Clinic?' or 'what's Highway Safety School?', it's essentially an introduction to the track. Learn the performance limits of your car on a real road course at local driving speeds- with an experienced instructor in the passenger seat.

    And guess what...convertibles are allowed!

    A good working car is required, so we've arranged for FREE tech inspections at the following locations (pre-scheduled appointments are required):
