Tire Rack Street Survival

Tire Rack Street Survival

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a "hands-on" driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

It's about more than driving - it's about LIVING!

Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

All Schools $95.

THE GREAT AMERICAN MOUNTAIN RALLY REVIVAL (GAMRR) 2019 Oct 25th-27th 2019

Hello former and potential Great American Mountain Rally participants!

I wanted to reach out to you about GAMRR2019.  Obviously the untimely passing of Steve McKelvie (last year’s Rally Chair) has had a profound impact on the planning of the 2019 event. This event will be run October 25th-27th in honor of Steve who was the driving force behind GAMRR2018. Steve provided a level of rallying expertise that was extraordinary. I learned a great deal during the year that we spent together planning the 2018 event, those lessons learned will be valuable in the planning of GAMRR2019. 

With support from the New England Region SCCA and personnel from local sports car clubs I know that this event will rival & hopefully exceed last year’s event. Many have reached out to me offering support in running the event; to those my profound thanks. 

Steve and I had already established a preliminary route and had been coordinating with venues for lodging and events. Following is a preliminary route map.

History of the Great American Mountain Rallye

The flag dropped on the very first GAMR on Thanksgiving Day of 1953 and the rally continued every November through 1957. Described in the April 1956 issue of Auto Age as “America’s longest, toughest, and coldest rallye,” the races attracted driving teams from across America, Europe and Scandinavia. Conducted the weekend of American Thanksgiving, the rally typically featured challenging snowy weather through New York’s Adirondack, New Hampshire’s White, and Vermont’s Green Mountains. Tire chains were an absolute must!

In its day the Great American Mountain Rallye attracted top teams from around the world.  The Rootes team entered Sheila van Damm in 1953 and 1954.  Stirling Moss also competed in this rally in 1954.  The great Maurice Gastonides, the 1953 Monte Carlo Rally winner, was a competitor as well.  One year, multi-time world driving champion, Juan Manual Fangio was the official starter.

The current event includes 3 days of Rallying. Day 1 will start in the Capital District of New York State and run Northerly thought the center of the Adirondack Park to Lake Placid; the site of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics with lodging at an exclusive inn.  Day 2 of the event will include a loop from Lake Placid North and West to the Saint Regis and Saranac Lake Regions and will end back at our exquisite host inn.  Day 3 will see us travelling East through the High Peaks and Keene Valley to Lake Champlain where a short ferry ride will take you across the lake to Vermont. The last leg of day 3 will take us South through the Western edge of Vermont and the Green Mountain Forest, including a number of the infamous ‘gaps” that traverse the Green Mountains. The culmination of the rally will once again end at Hemmings Motor News (our host from last year) with a scoring and a reception in the museum.

Preliminary Itinerary: (mileages subject to change based upon final reconnaissance runs.)

The purpose of the club is to promote fellowship, preservation and education of the Model T Ford by providing support to individuals interested in restoration, automotive history, and folklore of its use in the early twentieth century. Ownership of a Model T Ford is not a requirement to become a member of the MTFCI, MTFCA or Tri-City T’s/Capital District Chapter.

Tire Rack Street Survival

Sunday, October 21st, 8:00AM-4:00PM

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a "hands-on" driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

It's about more than driving - it's about LIVING!

Tri-City T's Car Show

Tri-City T’s, a chapter of the Model T Ford Club International, Inc. & The Capitol District Chapter, a chapter of the Model T Ford Club of America

Saratoga Springs, NY – The Tri-City T’s, a chapter of the Model T Ford Club International, Inc. (MTFCI) and Capitol District Chapter, a chapter of the Model T Ford Club of America (MTFCA) are sponsoring a public exhibition day Saturday September 29, 2018 at the Saratoga Auto Museum, 110 Avenue of the Pines Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. The event is hosted by the Saratoga Auto Museum and is held in conjunction with the “Annual MTFCI International Day of Touring”. This event was started two years ago with the intent of getting as many Model T Fords worldwide out touring for the day to allow for public viewing and education on “the car that put the world on wheels”.

The purpose of the club is to promote fellowship, preservation and education of the Model T Ford by providing support to individuals interested in restoration, automotive history, and folklore of its use in the early 20th century. Ownership of a Model T Ford is not a requirement to become a member of the MTFCI, MTFCA or Tri-City T’s/Capitol District Chapter.

The chapter officers and members encourage any individual interested in learning more about the Model T Ford to attend in order to experience the cars up close along with their owners. The exhibition will take place in front of the Saratoga Auto Museum on Saturday September 29, 2018 from 10 am to 2 pm. Model T Ford automobiles, including several interesting variants of the car (snowmobiles, camping equipment, etc.) will be on display for close inspection. This event is not a car show. This is a “hands-on” type of event. You will be encouraged to sit in the vehicles, lift the hood, inspect from every angle and ask as many questions as you would like. The Model T Ford exhibition is completely free to the public.

More information on the club and Model T Ford hobby may be found on the web at www.modelt.org and www.mtfca.com.
