I4 young drivers and their parents from around the Midwest gathered at the Tire Rack in South Bend, IN for a day of Street Survival. It is one of a series of courses in safe driving created by the BMW Car Club and presented by the South Bend Region, Sports Car Club of America and sponsored by Tire Rack. Despite rain, wind and cold, the students learned some of the basics of car control that tested their own personal limits and those of the family car, while operating in a safe, controlled environment. The program goes well beyond the limits of most driver ed courses, but is concentrated into a single day of both classroom and on-track instruction. These events are conducted throughout the year in many communities and can help the young driver better understand how to deal with emergencies while on the road.
