Event Preparation and Things to Bring
Congratulations on your decision to participate in the 19th Annual Performance Driving School hosted by the Carolina Regional Mustang Club. The purpose of the school is to provide participants an opportunity to learn more about their cars and how to drive them safely in a performance environment. This is NOT a racing school. Racing and other overly aggressive driving will NOT be tolerated.
- SHORT OR LONG SLEEVE SHIRTS, LONG PANTS AND CLOSED TOE SHOES ARE REQUIRED WHILE DRIVING ON TRACK.We require that students wear non-synthetic clothing, such as wool or cotton for safety and comfort. T-shirts (short or long sleeves) and long pants must be worn when driving or riding on track. Shorts or tank tops can not be worn in the car while on track, and in October you probably won't want to anyway. Suitable footwear, that is, no open toed shoes or sandals, must be worn while on track.
- BRING YOUR OWN HELMET (SNELL SA2010 or SA2015 required).The Driving School has 5 rental helmets in varying sizes.We strongly recommend that you either rent one from the school through the on-line registration system for the weekend or attempt to borrow one to bring with you.
- BEFORE YOU DEPART.We strongly recommend that you install or have installed new brake pads on all 4 wheels and bleed your brake fluid and add new, high temperature variety.Road course events can take a toll on brakes and we don’t want your weekend cut short due to worn out brake pads.There are few auto supply houses in the area so finding specific replacement brake pads could prove difficult.High boiling point brake fluid is recommended to prevent the boiling of the fluid in the master cylinder and brake lines.This condition could lead to a reduction in braking capacity for your vehicle.We also recommend a recent oil change along with an inspection to determine that your coolant reservoir is properly filled.
- Extra quart (or two) of oil and extra brake fluid
- Beverages to replace the water you will lose at the track. No alcoholic beverages are allowed until the event finishes for the day.
- Snacks to replenish your body.There is a concession stand open for breakfast and lunch
- Glass cleaner and paper towels
- Gas - fill up before arriving at the track, but regular and racing fuels are available, though expensive, at the track
- Fire extinguisher (optional though recommended)
- Other tools and parts, as desired. Examples: coolant, air compressor, hoses, belts, extra brake pads
- Sunscreen and/or a hat
- Lawn chair(s) and a canopy for shade
- A tarp or two to protect your gear from the elements in the event of rain
- A relaxed, open mind for learning new and exciting driving skills, and the willingness to be guided by your experienced instructor.
