Street Survival School Returns to WGI

It's become an annual tradition at Watkins Glen International. This past weekend, the Tire Rack Street Survival School, a safe teen driver program designed to give them the driving tools and hands-on experience to become smart, safer drivers, made a return visit to the famed Schuyler County road course. Thirty students ranging in age from 16 to 18 from all across Upstate New York, including Corning, Rochester, Poughkeepsie, Ithaca and Vestal, participated in the all-day event. Program director Rick Zimmerman says the kids enjoy it...


Zimmerman says there's a number of different skill sets the school goes through to help the students develop their techniques.

The students drive their own vehicles in order to best know how it will react if certain events should occur and so they know how it will respond. To learn more about the Street Survival School, click here
