The Midwestern Council of Sports Car Clubs will be running two drivers schools this year with tracks for both High Speed Autocross and Wheel to Wheel. The first is April 21st at Blackhawk farms in Rockton IL (N. of Rockford) Roll bars are required in open cars. The club will also run five HSAX days plus a HPDE at Blackhawk and Autobahn in Joliet, IL. HSAX is just what it sounds like - standing start autocross using a racetrack instead of a course of cones.

Here's the link to the calendar and registration, and the official description of the event:
Midwestern Council presents the first of two on-track driver's schools for 2012. Each features a full day of instruction, track time and constant feedback from experienced instructors.


I've done the HSAX school twice and it is an ideal way for a novice to get experience and confidence at the track.

Jim, Thanks for posting about this!!
I am the registrar for the drivers schools with Midwestern Council. We do still have some spots open in both High Speed Autocross and Wheel to Wheel schools. HSAX is a great way to get out on track and have fun, even if your car isn't fully race prepared yet or you've never had any experience. The registration does close on Wednesday, April 11, so if anyone is considering signing up, do it right away.
I'd also like to see some B-spec cars out there this season, plus we always have room for more Spec Miatas :) Midwestern Council licenses are accepted by other racing organizations and we have a wonderful W2W program with some really great instructors. I ended up taking the W2W school twice my first season just because it was so helpful and lots of good feedback.
Here are the links for more information, or to sign up.
