CVCC HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVERS SCHOOL
May 2 & 3, 2020
Cumberland Valley Corvette Club will holding its annual High Performance driving school on May 2 & 3, 2019 at the Pocono Raceway - North Course.
This event is open to all makes and models; convertibles and open cockpit cars require approved 'roll-over protection' (not cosmetic, bolt-in, or accessory style hoops/bars). High center of gravity vehicles (trucks, SUV, Crossovers) are not eligible.
Please contact CVCC for additional information on these restrictions.
We will be using a new format this year; we are reducing the number of run groups and increasing the track time. If all goes well, participants will get 5 sessions per day on the track.
This will be a non-competition event with emphasis on learning to drive your car on a high-speed road course. 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 in-car instructor.
INTERMEDIATE - Driving school or high-speed competition experience.
ADVANCED - Extensive track time or competition license.
An instructor will NOT be assigned to the Intermediate and Advanced groups. but a number of instructors will be available. Any time there are two people in a car, one MUST be an approved CVCC instructor. This school is one of few opportunities in the East Region to qualify for an NCCC high speed license
All STUDENTS will have mandatory classroom sessions and meetings both days of the event. Approved roll-over protection is required for convertibles and open cars. One-piece targa tops or ‘T’ tops are considered roll over protection.
Entry Fees include both days:
STUDENTS (with instructor) - $350
INTERMEDIATE - $325
ADVANCED - $300
Spaces are be limited, so send your entry in early. When we receive your completed entry form and fee, you will be sent a schedule, motel information, pre-tech form, maps and other useful information.
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.
Safety Equipment: Helmets are required and must be Snell Foundation certified 2010 ('SA' or 'M'), or newer. A hard mounted fire extinguisher, minimum 5BC rating with a gauge, metal bracket, and clamp, is required in accordance to our NCCC insurance.
Driver check-in and Tech Inspection will be available at the host hotel (Comfort Inn Pocono Mountain) Friday evening 5:00p.m. - 7:00p.m. and Saturday morning in the garage area at the track.
