Look no further than SVTOA. You can't beat the price and the amount of seat time in your own car. The Michigan chapter alone has put on 4 events this year at Waterford Hills, Gingerman, Putnam Park and Autobahn.
The Michigan chapter was very light on classroom instruction at Putnam Park where I instructed but at all of the National SVTOA events you get excellent classroom instruction catered to the novice driver. Roughly 50% of our attendees are first or second time students so the intimidation factor of being a rookie is minimized.
The next event is a co-sponsored event at Mid Ohio October 21st - 23rd with the Ohio SAAC Club.

The information to register follows.

Join us for the NW SAAC / SVTOA event at the spectacular Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Lexington, OH, Fri - Sunday, Oct 21 - 23. This is a joint event between the NW Ohio SAAC club and the Pittsburgh SVTOA Chapter. As such, we WILL be running a scaled-down version of our SVTOA On Track Performance Driving Clinic within the overall structure of the NW Ohio SAAC club.

On Sat & Sun ONLY, we will have classroom sessions and be bringing a crew of our highly-enthusiastic and dedicated SVTOA in-car instructors. Mid-Ohio is a technically demanding and rewarding course to drive. The classroom sessions and in-car instructors are HIGHLY recommended for the Beginner and Novice participants and will cost you nothing extra!


Registration Information
* This event is limited to 80 vehicles per day and is open to ALL MAKES AND MODELS.

Pre-Registration is REQUIRED. To register, contact:

Rod Harrold
shelby68kr500@aol.com
Phone/Fax: 330/497-9683

2 cents

i would also recommend nasa which may run in your area..i will check...it seems that in your area there are a lot of fairly inexpensive track days w/o instruction also, so after some "tutored" weekends, you can work on what you learned from the instruction. try www.racenasa.com .and nasa was just at grattan last weekend

Ya know, I was thinking about driving down south this winter to attend 1 or 2 of these to stay fresh in the off season...

And of course have a ton of fun!
