Winter Driving Education Event in February is Being Sponsored by MINI of Pittsburgh

MINI of Pittsburgh is proudly sponsoring the Winter Driving Refresher education event where drivers can bring their vehicles and drive in winter conditions and learn new skills.

Online PR News – 27-January-2012 – – MINI of Pittsburgh is proud to announce that they are sponsoring the Winter Driving Refresher education event on February 12 at BeaveRun, put on especially for the PittStop MINI Club. The driving education event will help teach drivers how to improve their driving skills in slick conditions.

The event will be held on February 12 from 8am-3pm at the BeaveRun MotorSports Complex in Wampum, PA. The event gives drivers the opportunity to learn driving in slick and extreme winter weather in a safe and controlled environment rather than on public roads. No reason to go to your local public parking lot and worry about getting caught spinning around in the snow!

The cost to attend is a mere $5 for primary drivers and $5 for any co-drivers. The cost of the event includes all of the training and fun driving as well as a Subway Box Lunch. The event will include classroom instruction by instructors detailing winter driving techniques, equipment to use, and even winter survival skills. Instructors will be in driver’s vehicles giving one-on-one instruction as owners travel through the slalom, skidpad braking, and coned-autocross courses.

Drivers will receive education on how stability control and anti-lock brakes work, when to enable Traction Control and when to shut it off, and how to integrate these components into driving in the wet conditions.

All MINI and non-MINI vehicles are welcome to attend the event. Drivers must have a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance to participate. The event will be a go no matter what conditions are present on the day, snow, rain, sleet, or a sunny and beautiful February day. The course can be tuned to imitate slick conditions so weather is not an issue.

MINI of Pittsburgh is honored to sponsor the event and be a part of a great training event. To register for the event, visit For more information on MINI vehicles, visit MINI of Pittsburgh and speak with their helpful staff members. Visit MINI of Pittsburgh online at
