However, here at MINI of Pittsburgh, we like to be prepared.
The winter is not over yet, so we wanted to refresh our local drivers’ winter driving skills.
This past Sunday, on February 10, 2013, many MINIs circled the Pittsburgh International Race Complex from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
MINI drivers learned more about winter driving in a safe and pressure-free environment.
We asked some of those who attended the event about their most valuable lessons learned.
Here is what they had to say.
“Don’t try to take that first set of gates out wide or you’ll end up head first in the wall.” – Justin
“Know your limits and test them only in the most ideal of controlled environments. I also learned Pitt Stop drivers know their way around a track!” – Wayman
“Taking ice on in a straight line rather than at a turn will give you more control over the car – so maybe go a little wide in the turn instead of sliding off the road. Also, my MINI is a beast.” – Tiffany
“That a Justa on snow tires can perform well on the north track!” – Melissa
Oh, and the most valuable lesson we learned: “Oh My Grill has the best specialty grilled cheese sandwiches around!”
