2014 THSCC Southern Fried HPDE
You are registering for a two day high performance driver's education event conducted by Tarheel Sports Car Club. HPDE Student drivers can expect four 25 minute driving sessions each day, with classroom discussions held between on-track sessions for instructed groups. Student drivers will be grouped based on experience level into FOUR groups. Green, Yellow, and Blue run groups will have in car instructors.
When registering, please keep in mind that final run group placement is determined by THSCC Staff based on your previous experience as well as prior instructor evaluations. Register for the group you feel fits you best and THSCC Staff will review your MotorsportsReg.com history (Make sure it is up to date!) to verify correct run group placement.
Beginner (Green): Green group students typically have 3 or fewer events. Students will focus on track etiquette/safety, learning the basic line, proper inputs, and awareness of basic vehicle dynamics.
Intermediate (Yellow): Yellow group students typically have done between 3 and 10 events. Students will continue to explore topics of vehicle dynamics like weight transfer and slip angle to improve their car control skills.
Advanced (Blue): Blue group students typically have done 10 or more events. Students will continue to work on improving at-speed recognition of off line situations and how to adjust inputs while maintaining car control to correct them.
Note: We do allow solo students in our blue group for drivers that prefer the pace of our Blue group or may not be as comfortable with the “pass anywhere with a point” rule in our Red group.
Advanced Solo (Red): Our Red group is reserved for students that have demonstrated on track proficiency of car control skills and traffic management in all situations. This run group allows passing anywhere with a point.
****If you have never run with THSCC before and are signing up for our Red group, we do require references, and you will have a check ride during your first session. Please e-mail the registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org with references after you register. *****
Instructors: If you do not see an 'Instructor Entry' option when you register, it means we do not have you authorized as an instructor in MotorsportReg.
