Virtual Driving School December 7

The Longest Day Driving School is our biggest club event, however, some of our members have never touched rubber to the track. If you want some track experience without committing to LDDS, our virtual driving school in December is for you. Even if you are a seasoned veteran just looking to improve your skills over the winter months, you are welcome to a fun day pushing cars to the limit and even beyond.

Join us for a virtual driving school on Saturday, December 7 from 11 am to 3 pm at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa, 5452 NE 22nd St., Des Moines. We will have various video games set up in the Theadora C. Mapes Auditorium where you can drive on well-known tracks like Road America, Laguna Seca and even the Nurburgring in Germany without fearing a crash.

This is a family friendly event and all ages are welcome. We will have instructors for each video game. Mario Kart will also be playing for those beginner virtual racers.

Park on the north side of the ARL and enter at the auditorium entrance. For those allergic to animals, there is no need to worry; the air system for the auditorium is different than the air system for the animals. For those that are animal lovers, you are welcome to tour the facility and see what animals are up for adoption.

The club will be providing chili to all “drivers” and attendees at the school. Please email any questions you may have to

You are also welcome to bring your own chili recipes or treats to the event. If you can’t make it and would like to donate a gift to the shelter, visit their Amazon Wish List at Amazon Wishlist.
