ELKHART LAKE — With all this snow on the ground and more on the way, the time is right to shake off that cabin fever and start looking for a big, empty, snow-filled area to do donuts, handbrake slides and other thrilling sideways maneuvers.
But instead of doing it in a parking lot – where you not only have to ignore the nasty glares of freaked-out folks and risk a chat with our friends in local law enforcement, Road America encourages drivers to try its Winter Autocross on March 10.
It’s only $75 per driver or $100 for two drivers sharing a car. Extra pit passes are $20 each.
“It’s huge fun, of course, but you will also learn how to command your vehicle in low-traction conditions so you can be prepared when less than desirable winter road conditions make driving unpredictable,” said Mike Kertscher, programs manager for Road America. “Various pavement conditions and courses are offered including a long course, short course and practice pad. We will also have awards for best times in FWD, RWD and AWD vehicles.”
