Default Team O'Neil Winter School this year?

Is NESC organizing anything this year? TON has posted school dates.

Do they do 1 day rally classes? They used to do 2-5 days, I did a 2 day class years ago that was much fun. Tempted to go up this year for a 2 or 3 day school using their cars if anyone is interested in that. I probably won't like the price much.

I have first hand knowledge that NESC will not be running TON winter safety classes this year. Over the past 5 years interest has gone down and insurance costs have gone up. That said, its still is the most fun you can have in a car on snow for 300 bux. They are offering a 2 day winter-x/rally-x class now too. First day in their cars second day in yours. Details on their website.

Happy motoring

An Audi club has picked up two weekends, but they probably wouldn't allow non-European autos....

They let anyone in. Pretty sure they do 2 days, with some actual timed runs.

FWIW..., historically, the Audi club rents the whole facility and uses their club members to instruct. I.e. you will not be instructed by TON staff. TON staff will be on site simply as "life guards". Be sure to inquire if that is, still, the model if you sign up to run with them. Not saying anything bad about the Audi club, but just want people to know their classes are just not the full TON experience.

New winter season, same question.

Curious if NESIC will get a TON Winter Driving Day set up this season. Anyone have an idea of how many people would need to sign up to make it happen?

In the past we've needed 12 or so to make a one day event happen, many less for a two day event. I'm down for a multiday event this year.

NESC, Inc will not be organizing a winter safe schools at TON this year or in the future. 2011 was the last year for club insurance. Plus TON events were a loss to the club every year every year but one. Was very hard to consistently fill them.

Just work with TON directly, the class is worth every penny.

Reading this has increased my interest in the TON experience 10 fold. Would be willing to do a group trip this winter/spring
