On November 10th, the Arizona Border Region will host a Tire Rack Street Survival school at Marana Regional Airport.
The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a "hands-on" driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.
The Street Survival school is an all day event, from 8:30am to approximately 3:30pm. Cost per student is $95, lunch on site is included.
Please refer to the event calendar for event schedules and run/work order.
The Sports Car Club of America is represented in the Tucson and southern Arizona area by the Arizona Border Region, region #88, which is part of the larger SCCA Southern Pacific Division. The Arizona Border region host Solo events, more commonly referred to as autocross, we also have Rallycross events and Road Rally events. The Region also holds monthly board meetings, typically the first Tuesday of each month, which is open to anyone interested in the SCCA, autocross, or the Region's activities.
The SCCA Foundation is sponsoring VetMotorsports to provide more opportunities for veterans to participate at competitive events. Assisted by local volunteers, the veterans are given the opportunity to drive, work with the pit crew and ride-a-long in both four wheel and two wheel events.
Our Region is beginning our involvement with ride-a-longs, beginning April 29. The ultimate goal is to place veterans in hands-on, high stress, team environments reflecting the environment of active duty assignments. By associating these feelings with a positive, fun activity, we hope to help them heal and move forward. You can find more information at the web site below.
VETMotorsports placed injured warfighters behond the wheel in Selma, TX this past March. Below is the in-car footage with a Air Force veteran behind the wheel with an Army Veteran as his co-driver.
Club meetings are open to anyone with an interest in the club and its events. You don't have to be an SCCA member to attend and you don't have to have attended an event yet either.
Meetings start at 7pm and are typically on the first Tuesday of the month. Exceptions are conflicts with national holidays including the running of the Tire Rack Solo National Championships in early September.
Next Meeting: Tuesday, November 6
Feel free to attend and enjoy free food and bench racing.
