This one's being organized by the KC region BMWCCA, at the MCC facility.

And the top reasons somebody should attend:

10) It's a hell of a lot of fun!

9) It's not "driver's ed". No gory movies, no droning instructors telling you to make a full stop and use your signal.

8 ) Our instinctual responses to fear and pressure come from millions of years facing down bears and catching fish with our bare hands. Those instincts fail us when it comes to managing a car in an emergency situation...they're usually the exact wrong thing to do

7) The reason insurance costs so much for 16-24 year olds is pure statisics...Insurance companies pay more claims on drivers that age than anyone else. It doesn't have to be that way, and we can help.

6) You'll probably save enough on your insurance to pay for the measly $60 entry fee.

5) Lunch is provided

4) The facility is a dedicated classroom and track facility, not a parking lot and a tent. There's an actual indoor classroom, a floodable skidpad/hydroplane area, and a HUGE streets-type course

3) 93% of drivers think they're above average in skill, and since only 50% of people can really be above average at anything, that means 43% of drivers overestimate their abilities :rofl:

2) You'll learn what it's like to really slide your car, to recover from that skid and the one that often immediately follows it

1) You'll learn your way around the condition called Object Fixation, which means staring at what you're afraid of hitting..and driving right into it, without realizing you could have easily avoided it if you just looked where you wanted the car to go instead




Go here for registration and more information: http://www.streetsurvival.org/school-information.php?ID=164

If you're older than 21, you can usually still attend as long as we have room, and right now, we do. So hit me up if you're interested and I'll get you on the list.

Here are some videos, the first one is a before & after series I took this past spring during the emergency avoidance exercise.
