Goodyear Tires held their annual North American Dealer Conference in Washington DC the last week in January and invited ILR Chief Instructor Ian Law to talk to their over 2700 dealers about winter driving and the benefits of winter tires. The ILR Toyota Tacoma truck was a big hit at the show too.

Just got back to London from Car Control School. Just want to let you know that your team is absolutely topnotch. Every one of them a consummate professional; friendly, helpful, and providing lots of pitches for more ILR schools!
With that in mind, I’ve now decided that you’ll see me in 2016 for Advanced Autoslalom School as well as Track School. And of course I’m spreading the word and socializing the training on Facebook et al. Winter Driving School will have to wait until I trade up my daily driver for something I trust to drive all the way up to Minden.
Keep up the great work, mate. You had a full class of very happy students today due to the calibre and attitude of your instructors.
For our last of the season Track School & Lapping Day at CTMP (Mosport) DDT with NEO Motorsports on Saturday, October 10th we will be teaming up with the GT Super Series races. These are some of the fastest GT car in Canada competing in 20 minute sprint races. The races will be held during the lapping sessions and will not interfere with the Track School. Participants registered for our Lapping Sessions will be able watch some exciting racing and then go out for their own lapping sessions right after the racing.
The new 2016 Winter Driving School has been posted on our Schedule page. We are already booking drivers into these dates so don’t wait too long so you can get the date of your choice. We are also booking corporate groups into our week day programs. Please contact us ASAP so we can get you the best possible date for your group. Don’t forget we have Gift Certificates available so you can give the people you care about the gift that could save their lives.
We know how important it is to motoring safety to be able to see and as importantly – be seen. That is why ILR Car Control School has teamed up with Newmarket based Free Throttle to offer a special discount on LED lighting for your vehicle or motorcycle. Free Throttle (www.freethrottle.com) offers state of the art LED lighting conversions, bulbs and advice to improve your vehicles’ lighting. I have converted my 1982 Volvo to LED headlights and Hi-beams and the difference is remarkable. LED lights offer brighter lights for less power and they last much longer than bulbs.
Our 2015 Exotic Car Ride Charity Event in support of the James Fund at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto was another huge success.

Many thanks to our sponsors and the participants and especially to our organiser Jenn Lyon. Congratulations to Diane F. our 1st place winner on our draw.

A BIG thank you goes out to all the instructors at ILR Car Control School for donating their time and expertise and to all the volunteers who make these days happen.
