Once again, the Boston Chapter is proud to host a Driving School at Watkins Glen International! The Glen is a large track (3.5 miles) which is known for its elevation changes; there is over a 100 foot difference between the highest and lowest sections of the track. IRL cars started racing here in 2005, and the US Grand Prix ran here from 1967 through 1980!

This event is a special "intensive" HPDE, with a very limited number of student slots available. This event will sell out so we encourage you to register early and plan for a lot of track time. The first day will comprise multiple on track exercises designed to raise your situational awareness with one on one coaching, to bring your driving skills to the next level.  The second day will run an open track format where you will build on the skills developed on day one.

This event is open to drivers with at least 20 days of experience on their track driving resume. Once you register for this event please contact the Chief Instructor with your driving resume as this will be reviewed before you are accepted into the event.

There will be no car sharing possible at this event due to the Intensive format.

What is a Driving School?

The purpose of a driving school is quite simple: to improve your driving skills. We will emphasize the relationship of driver and machine, making them function in unison and giving you, as a student, the opportunity to learn your limitations and expand your capabilities, thus creating safe driving skills and habits in a controlled situation.

If you're new to driving on the race track, unfortunately, this isn't the event for you. Click here to learn more and find other schools you can participate in!

What is an Intensive Driving School?

Everything you love about honing your skills on the race track, taken to the nth degree.
