PSA: DO NOT SEND A DEPOSIT IF I HAVE NOT SENT YOU AN EMAIL TELLING YOU YOU'RE IN THE SCHOOL.

Due to dropouts last year, we will also be requiring confirmation that you will be attending the week before the event.

It’s that time again! The ASCC High Performance Driving School for 2020 will be held during the long weekend on Sunday May 17th and Monday May 18th, 2020. This session is open to anyone who wants to learn some of the more advanced techniques and track safety to qualify for a Lapping card or Time Attack license for the 2020 season. A lapping license is required to attend any ARMS lapping events, and a Time Attack License is required for the 2020 ARMS time attack series that will take place in June, July and August.


1. ABOUT THE SCHOOL

The High Performance Driving School will take place starting with an evening classroom session on Sunday May 17th followed by an all day track session at Atlantic Motorsport Park on Monday May 18th. This course consists of a classroom session instructing students on the theory and physics of high performance driving as well as track safety. The following day consists entirely of on-track activities with small groups of students paired to experienced instructors.

We have 30 spots total.

2. COST

The school will cost $300. If signed off by an instructor at the end of the school, this also includes a lapping or time attack license. In addition, if you are not a member of an ARMS club an additional $30 is required to purchase a membership. A lunch will be included on the 18th.

3. WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING

A safe street vehicle. If your vehicle can pass MVI it should be OK for the on-track sessions. Vehicles will be inspected for suitability (Brakes, Tires, etc) prior to the session. It is highly recommended that you flush/bleed brake fluid before the event and do not use pads at less than 50% thickness.

Convertible vehicles are NOT permitted without adequate rollover protection, factory rollover protection is not enough so please check with the organizers. Please contact the organizers with questions regarding vehicle suitability. Students will be asked to complete a self-inspection checklist provided prior to the course.

A Snell 2010M or newer 'M' rated helmet is acceptable, provided the car is not equipped with a full rollcage or racing slicks. Cars with cages and/or slicks will require a Snell 2010 or newer 'SA' rated helmet. ‘DOT’ helmets are not approved. If you have an SFI, FIA or ECE rated helmet it may qualify, please ask.

If you do not have access to a helmet please contact the organizers as loaner helmets may be arranged with advance notice. ASCC has a very limited number of loaner helmets so it is first come, first serve.

4. WHAT YOU NEED TO FILL OUT

Below are the forms you need to read, understand and fill out for this school. PLEASE TRY TO HAVE THESE FORMS FILLED OUT FOR THE CLASSROOM SESSION. If you have any questions just ask.

A. SoloSport Self Tech Form must be filled out and completed

B. License Application Form (Leave instructor only section blank)

C. Club Membership Application (If not an ARMS member for 2020)

For ASCC you can also get a membership online here: http://www.ascc.ca/?page_id=423


For the school a fire extinguisher is not required.

Any questions please email hpds@ascc.ca, post here or send myself a private message

Completion of this High Performance Driving School AND instructor signoff qualifies participants for an ARMS Lapping and/or Time Attack license allowing you access to the many lapping and solo competition sessions at Atlantic Motorsport Park throughout the year. The cost of this license is included in your school entry.

5. REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT

To register for the school please email the following information to hpds@ascc.ca:

- Name
- Phone Number
- Email address for contact
- Make/Model/Year of vehicle and modifications
- Is your car a convertible (Yes / No)
- Previous motorsports/driving school experience with summary details (e.g. BMW school, previous HPDS, x years of AutoSlalom)


A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your entry. Deposits or full payments can also be made via etransfer to treasurer@ascc.ca. Make the password “ASCC20” Cheques payable to ASCC can be mailed to ASCC, Box 31120, Halifax NS, B3K 5Y1, ATT Debbie Miller. They can also be dropped off in person at any of the ASCC club meetings. Second tuesday of every month, 7:30pm @ The Riverside Pub in bedford. Please let me know if you are paying by cheque

DO NOT SEND A DEPOSIT IF I HAVE NOT SENT YOU AN EMAIL TELLING YOU YOU'RE IN THE SCHOOL.

DEPOSITS MUST BE RECEIVED BY APRIL 25TH TO GUARANTEE YOUR SPOT. There is a waiting list every year - if we have not received a deposit by then, we will start looking at the first person in the waiting list.

Please keep in mind that Sunday evening during the classroom session is a busy time so the more prepared you arrive (membership already purchased and forms filled out ahead of time) the smoother and quicker the evening will go! Our goal is always to try and get you out of the classroom at a reasonable hour so that you may have a full nights rest before the following track day!

All Schools are first come - first served! Reserve your spot today!

We look forward to seeing everyone at the Track!

Is there a rough count on how many spots are still available?
I'll send out an update on a few groups.

Only a couple spots, but there's always a waitlist and people always drop out.
