Cool biggrin.gif

After the Stunt class on the 27th in Glenville NY.

Stop on over at our Hotrod shop at Key Motors to hangout for the rest of the day in Ballston Spa, NY with UNYISSO.

Key Motors is not that far away from --- Leonard Motorsport Driving school in Glenville, NY.

Thanks DW for posting this on INEGMA. jump3.gif

If any of you are wondering whether or not you want to take this class, let me tell you that it was AWESOME. How often will you be able to attend a class that will teach you car control on a private course?

I hope that we can get enough people to sign up to be able to hold the class. I've already signed my ass up and I hope a few more of you do too.

If you're still on the fence about signing up, consider this. Have you ever beat a car in a race that you probably shouldn't be able to beat, simply because your driving abilities were better than the other person? Well if not then you can look forward to it after taking this class.

p.s. - Chris McCabe, don't we have a little grudge match to settle out on the track??? ohmy.gif

Just for a quick rundown of what we did last year...  (my understanding is that this year we'll have a FULL DAY of track time - WOO HOO!)

That UNBELIEVABLE video they showed us where one of the instructors drove a Mark VIII through a stunt exercise.  They were sliding the car sideways through very tight spaces, doing donuts around people, controlled 180's while shifting from reverse to drive, all kinds of crazy stuff!

Leo you are going to love this banana.gif You are going to have a full day at the track wink.gif
That is what Kevin said at UNYISSO's get together this past Saturday.

That rear wheel drive V-8 Lincoln Mark VIII that you mentioned from the Training Video last year has me all pumped up right now. jump3.gif
This Hotrod Lincoln had to hit the driving course at over 100 mph and did three complete controlled
360 turns and straighten out in the opening shot.
Even though I was not able to attend the driving school.

I bought the DVD from Kevin Leonard.
Watching that Lincoln go nuts right now. ohmy.gif

Tires squealing wink.gif

Constant tire smoke pouring out of the rear wheel wells going thru the road course. laugh.gif

Music Cranked Loud in the family room ohmy.gif DAD - TURN IT DOWN !!!! hahaha.gif

The tire smoke is getting so thick from the V-8 Cop Cars and Lincoln Mark VIII in the room.
I had to open the window to get some fresh air. laugh.gif

I notice there is a spark jumping off my foot everytime I watch this DVD.
Fires off the old Sparkplug all the time tongue.gif lildevil.gif

Now everyone can Contact Instructor Kevin Leonard directly to sign up for his specialized performance driving school jump3.gif

If we attended the course last year does that mean we can skip the classroom part in NY on Saturday? If so I am so in. Watch out Leo here I come! peelout.gif

Chris your 100% correct wink.gif
At our Mod day at Key Motors recently.

Kevin Leonard mentioned that you guys that took the class last year will just be doing all the driving this year in Rhode Island all day Saturday with Kevin's program.

Only the first timers have to come to Glenville, NY to take the classroom instruction for this performance driving school.

I can see it now faintthud.gif jump3.gif
You and Leo going for 1st place in the Road Course biggrin.gif

I'd be interested if the classroom was at the facility. It's just too much driving for me to head from NH to NY, spend the night at a hotel (more $$$), and then drive to RI the next day and back to NH. I'd love to do it, but not in this way... And it's a bit more expensive than last time, too.

Bummah. I was really looking forward to it this year, too... sad.gif
