Pedal to the Metal - 10 things you don't know about your car

General description

Hit the road this September and come to discover in Bucharest the world of automotives! From the drawing board to the wheel you'll find out what sets those wheels on fire and keeps that engine running!

If you like working with your hands, enjoy "tinkering" with cars or are you simply curious what's under the hood, this course is for you! Our training sessions and lectures will teach you the fundamentals of automobile components and how they work, system by system and bumper to bumper.

We'll make sure the lectures won't drive you crazy with all those transmissions, mufflers and we'll hit the breaks and change the route for the weekend and take you to the snow-covered Romanian mountains.
