Extreme Winter Advanced Driver Training

Date(s) - January 20, 2023
9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Pinestone Resort & Conference Centre


DriveTeq will operate its Extreme Winter Driver Training event on the pond at the Pinestone Resort & Conference Centre, Haliburton, Ontario on Fridays and Saturdays each week, starting on Friday, January 20, 2023, until the end of February, weather permitting.

The training program designed to test and improve the skills of all drivers either in their OWN VEHICLES OR BETTER, in our low-cost automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive, heated, studded tire rentals on a low friction surface. This incredible experience to train on ice on a closed-road/(pond) course is designed to improve each driver’s car control skills and confidence to later utilize during the “fair-weather” season on wet and dry pavement. We help folks accomplish their driving goals with lots of seat time coupled with lower speed, lower grip fun, in a controlled environment. Participants can challenge themselves by driving to/at the limit of the vehicle’s grip while accelerating, braking, and cornering with other drivers in the most extreme winter conditions. Don’t miss out on this limited opportunity to practice with slippery conditions to build great driving skills, all while having incredible FUN.

Register now as there is only a limited number of places for each event day.
