Polaris Slingshot Celebrates "National Stick Shift Day" With Nationwide Stick Shift Lessons

Hi Steve,

Polaris Slingshot<>, the three-wheeled, open-air roadster which promises to deliver the most fun you can have behind a steering wheel, has just announced an exciting program to reintroduce the lost art and pure fun of driving a manual transmission. In celebration of National Stick Shift Day on July 16, consumers can visit their local Slingshot dealership throughout the month of July for a free stick shift driving lesson. Each lesson will enter the participant in the Summer of Fun<> sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip to Maui, Hawaii and an opportunity to flex their newly-acquired skills in the ultimate driving experience on the Road to Hana.

For the 18% of Americans that know how to drive a manual, many will recall the painstaking learning experience in an old, mundane vehicle. Slingshot wants to provide a new perspective on how much fun mastering the art of slipping gear to gear can be, in full control of the vehicle, by offering lessons in a Slingshot.

Please let us know if you are interested in sharing this exciting announcement with your readers (press release attached) and/or if you are doing any coverage around driving stick shift – We’d be happy to provide you with any assets for a piece you are working on.
