On March 12th, FCA US LLC media released details about the latest stop for the “Mopar Road Ready” program. This time the program that is designed to help young drivers acquire the skills to be safe and defensive on the road is headed to Florida with a stop at the Gainesville Raceway in Gainesville. The free program is set to take place March 21-22 and allows qualifying teens between the ages of 15-19 to participate. Teens who sign up must have either a learner’s or driver’s license with at least 30 hours of driving experience to qualify for a place at the event. According to Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO Mopar Brand Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA – Global, “Mopar is a brand that cares about and supports all its drivers, especially the youngest. This is why we’ve teamed with the NHRA Motorsports Museum and B.R.A.K.E.S to offer the ‘Mopar Road Ready’ teen drivers’ initiative. This program allows teenage drivers to safely learn valuable defensive driving skills in a controlled environment.”
This collaborative efforts of the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Motorsports Museum and B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe) make events like this possible. Experts from both of these nationally recognized organizations lead teens as they participate in both classroom and behind-the-wheel training. Sessions last for four hours and include the review of topics including hand positioning, basic vehicle dynamics, accident avoidance, panic stop, along with many others.
