Event Review: Joburg’s Finest Toyota @ RST

DSCN9364

Rand Stadium Toyota (RST) make it a point to give back to the community for their continued support, and what better way to have done so than a joint effort with the Toyota Twin Cam Club of SA. Last year’s show was a serious contender, but this year it trumped all others and was arguably the largest Toyota-only show in the country.

The double-story dealership cleared its floors entirely for the great task of getting an entire Corolla timeline as well as some exotics on showcase.

RST went all out to provide excellent family entertainment from Urban Trax 4×4 rides and F1 simulators to some of the countries finest examples of Toyotas and the car that Jeremy Clarkson said to be the best he has ever driven. Yes,  the legendary Lexus LFA….

The Toyota Twin Cam Club of South Africa presents:

Advanced Driving Techniques – Skid Control & Collision Avoidance

Date:    Sunday, 28 April, 2013 
Time:   Registrations opens at 09h00, runs from 09h30 – 16h00
Venue: Zwartkops Raceway Skidpan

Cost:   

  • Club Members – R300
  • Non-club members – R380
  • Spectators – Free

Driving in heavy rain can be nerve-wracking. It gets worse when you’re faced with a dangerous situation and where what really matters is a split-second decision, it’s easy to make the wrong one…

South African accident statistics say that over 1 000 road fatalities are reported every month, and that adds up to over 13 000 annually. Can you and your loved ones avoid being another statistic when it comes down to protecting yourself on wet roads in a dangerous situation? With a little help, protecting yourself could become a little easier.

The confidence of drivers and their ability to react quickly and correctly in these instances on our roads play a vital part in the outcome of the emergency situation drivers may be presented with. Confidence and ability behind the wheel are only gained by what you have learned to prepare you for these kinds of situations.

The TTCC is a firm believer in creating and promoting safe driving, driver awareness and preparation – for whatever driving-related scenario you may find yourself in. The Skidpan event, held annually at Zwartkops Raceway, assists drivers in mastering skid control and collision avoidance. On the Skidpan, the Toyota Advanced Driving (TAD) Instructors will take drivers through this comprehensive course and simulate emergency situations dealing with: – ABS braking – Cadence braking – Lane changes – Skid Control – Oversteer – Understeer

Over the years this event has been held, we have watched many a nervous driver be transformed into a confident, positive and in-control driver. We have received numerous letters of thanks from participants informing us of how the TTCC’s Advanced Driving & Collision Avoidance Event prepared them to avoid the emergency situations altogether or minimalise the effects of what could have been drastically worse or even fatal.

Apart from the priceless, life-saving advanced driving techniques participants will learn, the Skidpan is also great fun and yields no damage to vehicles in this controlled environment. No doubt there are quite a few people out there who’ve wanted to see how sideways they can get their car around a sharp corner in the wet. Those with rear-wheel-drive cars are probably at the top of that list. On the Skidpan, sideways is the new straight – and it’s all legal and completely safe. This is also the only event where you will find that should it rain, the event is only going to be more fun!

Advanced Driving Certification will be given to each competitor. This Certificate can be submitted to your short-term insurer, and at their discretion, they should decrease your premium slightly as your risk factor is now lower. Why pay thousands of rands for Advanced Driving Certification and know-how?

We are offering the very same benefits of this comprehensive course with Toyota Advanced Driving Instructors for:

  • Club-members: R300
  • Non-club members: R380
  • Spectators: Free

As always, there will be a ToyConvoy to the event. Multiple-car convoys are always exciting to be a part of. Seeing and being a part of a convoy with so many Toyotas in a line is really a sight to behold! It also makes for great photography…

We encourage you to join the convoy:
Venue: Caltex Maxi’s N1 North – exit side parking area (NOT UNDER THE BRIDGE) 
Time: 08h30 
Committee member Steven Darge will be there to meet everyone and take the convoy through to Zwartkops.
The convoy departs for the Skidpan at 08h45.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Skid Pan – where slipping and sliding has never been this much fun!
