Kicking off the event season is the Museum in Motion Collector’s Tour March 25-28. Starting in Naples, Florida, the participants will be treated to unique and interesting experiences as they travel northward along the Gulf Coast. Starting with a visit to the very private, limited access Collier Collection, the tour will include stops at Muscle Car City, The Ringling Museum, St Armand’s Circle in Sarasota and the Fantasy of Flight Museum. Time has been allowed for private exploration and sightseeing as well. Participants can head over to Sebring at the end of the Tour if they want to experience the track world or just be spectators.
The NCM HPDE schools have become known for offering more than the routine driving schools. They are attended by many GM engineers and designers giving participants first hand contact with people like Kirk Bennion, designer; Harlan Charles, program manager; Tom Wallace, ret. Chief Engineer; Art Spong, customer quality; and Gerry Panetta, styling studio. Imagine not only being able to meet and talk to these people but also to have them teach you how to handle your car on the track.
If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, consider that special guest instructors who have come to NCM HPDEs include, Andy Pilgrim, John Heinricy and Shields Bergstrom. They will pilot your car around the track and give you a race type ride and an advanced education.
For the first time ever we will be offering a spectrum of activities at Sebring March 29-30 including an NCCC sanctioned autocross and an All-GM judged car show.
Any participant is welcome to the autocross, whether to just try it out, compete for points or times or get rides. Spectators are welcome at all activities including the HPDE and they can sign up for rides on the track or at the autocross as well.
