Clinic Message August 3rd, 2016
Esprit de Four 4WDC of San Jose is proud to present its continuing series of beginner off road driving classes. 23 years and going strong! Classes are scheduled for 2010 at the Hollister Hills SVRA in Hollister, CA. Hollister Hills is about an hour south of San Jose.
Who can attend? Our courses have been specifically designed for the novice driver. More experienced drivers also benefit from the classes as we cover new improvements in 4×4 technology and techniques every year. New drivers with a STOCK off road vehicle will be shown the rigors of off road driving in a friendly and helpful environment. Students come away from an ED4 safety training clinic with a new found understanding of their own vehicle and its capabilities. Our students give us high marks. Students often attend year after year and bring friends.
What do we do? Your day begins with some classroom instruction conducted by some of the most experienced drivers within ED4. This is followed a hands-on live demonstration training! Your group then has time for Lunch to talk with Staff and your trail lead. (this BYOL bring your own lunch).
Each student then gets an opportunity, to experience actual off road driving using their own vehicle!
During the trail ride, students in small groups are lead by experienced instructors. Stops are then made at different off road driving venues. These venues have been carefully designed to challenge the driver with basic and everyday off road challenges without introducing a high degree of risk. Since safety is of paramount importance, instructors are stationed all along the way to encourage and offer assistance each and every driver. All drivers get to watch others in their group drive over and through the different challenges. In most cases an instructor will make the first pass through an obstacle so as to provide an actual demonstration.
Come join the members of Esprit de Four 4WDC on May 21st, 2016 or September 17th, 2016, one of our Safety Clinics in 2016 in Hollister, CA. Those interested in attending any of the separate (but identical) classes should get their reservations in as soon as possible as these classes tend to fill up. Sign up for dinner and enjoy some good stories of your day. You’ll be dining with many of your volunteer instructors.
