< JUST OPENED A HANDFUL OF SEATS FOR NON-MEMBERS >

At times we are able to offer  —to our members— exclusive access to often non-public places and tours, and we are beyond delighted to offer a tour of the facility, and attendance at a crash test of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in Ruckersville. (https://www.iihs.org/iihs/about-us)

IIHS is an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries, and property damage — from motor vehicle crashes. For decades, IIHS has been a leader in finding out what works and doesn’t work to prevent motor vehicle crashes from happening in the first place and to minimize injuries in the crashes that still occur.

Vehicle Research Center
In 1992, IIHS opened the VRC. Tucked in the foothills of central Virginia, this state-of-the-art facility is where IIHS performs the crash tests that form the basis of its widely consulted vehicle ratings.

Space is limited and once the available spots are gone, the sign-up form will stop accepting submissions. (Only 2 registrations per member organization, please.)

Timeline:

(If you’re willing to drive, please indicate on the registration form.)
