January 19, 2012 by  

Daytona State College’s Advanced Technology College (ATC) will be holding its tenth annual ATC Car Show this Saturday, January 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Daytona Beach campus. The show will be highlighted by the presence of the International Sport Compact Auto Racing Series organization which will add a representative from the business community to the show. The College is using printing services to print flyers and posters about the show to distribute to the local community to attract attendees and increase attendance at the show.

According to Doug Giacobbe, having ISCARS at the auto show demonstrates that businesses are becoming interested in the show and adding to the relevance of the College’s high technology programs. At the ATC, the College has programs in computer science, performance engine technology, automotive technology, and simulation technology, among others. ISCARS President and CEO Randy Claypoole hopes that his organization’s attendance at the show will increase the attention to the College’s advanced technology educational programs and encourage students to consider careers in auto racing or other high technology industries.

The show itself will feature free admissions for spectators who can see demonstrations of the Ormond Beach Police Department K-9’s, aircraft and rally car simulators and engines guilt by students in the College’s High-Performance Engine Technology Program. There will also be door prizes and food. A fee of $10 will be charged for those who enter their automobiles in one of 14 different categories that include hot rod, antique, foreign-made, antique and classic and will be awarded trophies for the best models in those categories.
