Midwest Regional Event: Kansas City Section Defensive Driving & Autocross July 8, 2017


The Kansas City Section hosted yet another successful Regional Event with the July 8th Defensive Driving School and Autocross.  There were a record number of participants [35] and we were gratified to have many drivers aged 20 and under that were able to learn new skills and apply them on the course:  defensive driving excercises, slalom and the skid pad all provided both challanges and fun for all the drivers.  Special thanks to National President Terry Kiwala who spent a considerable amount of time with the set up of the courses and acted as the autocross starter for the entire afternoon.  Special thanks also to lead instructor Dudley Smith for recruiting an excellent cadre of instructors and leading the excellend classroom presentations.  It all made a very hot, humid, Kansas City day really enjoyable!  Dinner at the local Olive Garden capped off the day with more fun and a few awards.

Get to know what your car can do and what you can do with your car!

The MBCA|Twin Cities Section is set to host a Defensive Driving and Autocross Event open to both MBCA members and non-members alike, with teen drivers especially encouraged to participate.  Participants will learn handling and braking skills that will make them a better and safer driver from acclaimed National Driving Instructors, Frank and Mary Alice Cozza, and Regional Director, Jason Burton, who will be joined by fellow instructors from a number of local and regional sections.

In the morning, a short classroom session covering defensive driving skills will be followed by one-on-one instruction using your own car.  These in-car exercises will help drivers become familiar with various defensive driving and evasive action maneuvers.

After lunch (which will be provided on site), participants will hone their skills on an autocross course specifically designed to simulate a variety of daily driving situations.  Certificates of completion will be issued and a variety of prizes awarded at the end of the day.

Cost for the day (including lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments) will be $40 per driver, payable in advance by check written to:  MBCA – Twin Cities Section.

Please provide names and contact information to Joe VanLoy via phone or email to reserve your spot and submit your check no later than Wednesday, October 5th to complete your registration.
