Event Details

Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA) is proud to announce an exciting High Performance Driver Education Day, Held with the support of Lotus Ltd this years day will be on May 29, 2024.

Watkins Glen International, at the southern tip of Lake Seneca in New York, is one of North America’s oldest road courses and was home to the U.S. Grand Prix for many years. Lotus won several times with Innes Ireland, Jimmy Clark, Jochen Rindt, Ronnie Peterson, and Emerson Fittipaldi while others such as Mario Andretti also took podium finishes for Lotus.

What better way to explore the handling of your Lotus or Mercedes-Benz than on one of North America’s premier road courses. The intent of the MBCA’s Driver Education program is to teach you the skills to handle your car better. Besides having plain old fun with your car, the techniques you’ll learn will make you a safer, more aware driver on the street! Afraid to take your car on the racetrack because it might get damaged? That’s understandable, it can happen. However, it can also happen on the street. The race track is a controlled environment in which you have far more freedom to make a “mistake” than on the street. (However, if you really want your car protected, read about optional track insurance coverage below.) If you are a beginner or novice driver, during our High Performance Driver Education Day, you will have a seasoned instructor with you at all times to guide and teach you at a pace with which you are comfortable. There is no pressure and no trophies at a Driver Education day. It’s all about safety, car control, and fun! Yes, in that order.

You do NOT need a Mercedes-Benz or Lotus to attend this event. Any marque is welcome if properly equipped. You are encouraged to tell your friends about this event and have them join us for a wonderful day at Watkins Glen!
