CVCC DRIVERS SCHOOL
May 4 & 5 2019
Cumberland Valley Corvette Club will hold a driving school on May 4 & 5, 2019 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. The students will be in groups of 15 to 20 cars according to their skill levels to avoid more advanced drivers running up on drivers just beginning. Cars will be grouped as follows:
STUDENT - Little or no experience. You will be assigned a full time instructor.
INTERMEDIATE - Driving school or high-speed competition experience.
ADVANCED - Extensive school time or competition license.
An instructor will NOT be assigned to the Intermediate and Advanced groups since they are intended for track time. However, there will be a limited number of instructors made available, if requested for a ride along. It is the student responsibility to connect with an instructor.
The instructor shall be the person who decides when a STUDENT is ready to solo. If any student who has been signed off wants an instructor to ride with them for further help an instructor should be available.
Any time there are two people in a car, one MUST be an instructor.
All STUDENTS will have a mandatory classroom session prior to entering the track.
A roll bar is required for open cars. Any clip-on hardtop for open cars is not considered roll over protection. One-piece targa tops or ‘T’ tops are considered roll protection.
Entry Fees include both days:
STUDENTS (with instructor) - $335 INTERMEDIATE - $310
ADVANCED - $285
Spaces will be limited, so send your entry in early. When we receive your completed form and entry fee, you will be sent a schedule, motel information, pre-tech form, maps and other useful information. If you give an e-mail address we can confirm your entry right away. All other information will be sent USPS at a later date.
Refund Policy, Full refund up to two weeks before the event. After that date full refund ONLY if someone is available to take your place. NO refunds after Thursday before the event.
Note: Snell 2010, or newer, approved helmet and mounted on board fire extinguisher minimum 5BC rating with metal bracket and metal to metal clamp are required by NCCC insurance to run in the school.
