About The Event

Online registration ends April 15, 2024

Cumberland Valley Corvette Club will hold a driving school on April 27 & April 28, 2024 at the Pocono Raceway - North Course. This will be a non-competition event with emphasis on learning to drive your car on a high-speed racecourse. This is the only opportunity in the East Region to qualifify for an NCCC High Speed Certifcation, required to compete at this year's NCCC convention. The students will be in groups of 15 to 20 cars according to their skill levels to avoid more advanced drivers running up on other drivers just beginning. Cars will be grouped as follows:

If you are unsure of which category to register for, please email Tom Poole:   endeavor01@aol.com

STUDENT GROUP - Little or no experience. All participants in the student group will have mandatory classroom sessions, including one prior to entering the track, attendance is required at all scheduled classroom sessions.

The instructor shall be the person who decides when a student is ready to solo.

Any time there are two people in a car, one MUST be a CVCC designated instructor.
