High heels not only give women an edge in fashion, self-defense, and tightrope polo, they also provide an excellent foot fulcrum when liberally applied to the accelerator of a ’69 Dodge Charger. Learn to pump your pump properly with today's side deal: for $99, you get one admission to a Wheels in Heels driving clinic on September 11, 2010, at 8:30 a.m. The three-and-a-half-hour female-focused fete takes place at the Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.
Developed by Colorado racecar drivers Denise Longwell and Christine Jerritts, the Wheels in Heels driving clinic aims to empower everyday women at the horseless helm. During clinics, highly trained instructors illustrate how to recover automotive control during all sorts of emergency situations, such as skidding, brake failure, and jaywalking chickens. Because the goal of the clinic is to prepare you for real-life collision avoidance, you'll learn to master the maneuvers from the familiar confines of your own car, although if you seek vehicle versatility or don't own a four-wheeled wagon, you can call ahead to see about reserving one of the event's sponsored chariots. Before you head to the racetrack for hands-on practice, you'll get to show off your fashionable footwear by throwing up your feet during a short classroom orientation.
After 3.5 hours of expertly guided wheel wizardry, women from all walks of life cruise away with a heightened sense of confidence and safety formerly reserved only for Keanu Reeves and Keanu Reeves 2.0. Whether you are a feisty young female with an inexplicable need for speed, or a professional mom looking to fight the minivan stereotype, today's Groupon to Wheels in Heels will top off your goal tank. Call ahead or email to register.
