PDE (Performance Driver Education) Learn the art of track driving in a controlled environment on the full 2.8 mile Pitt Race course. The goal is for you to continue to develop your skills behind the wheel as you experience a broad range of your car’s performance at a pace that is faster than Group 1 and Group 2. If you want to be a better driver with driving techniques based on racing, Pitt Race PDE is your source. No classroom or instruction is provided for Group 2 Solo and Group 3. Participants are divided into the following Groups:
Group 2 Solo (Intermediate): Group 2 Solo is for drivers who have demonstrated an understanding of high-performance rules, safety, etiquette, and track regulations. Drivers in this group have been signed off as a safe solo driver by two Pitt Race Instructors. Cost: $225 per driver
Group 3 (Advanced): Pitt Race PDE drivers who are signed off by our chief driving instructor and/or are accredited race organization or school (SCCA, NASA, etc.) have the opportunity for solo runs and to utilize our Test & Tune event days. Cost: $225 per driver
Group 2 Solo & Group 3’s will consist of several run groups splitting up the different classes of cars from street cars, race prepared (closed wheel) & race prepared (open wheel). There will be 25 minute sessions, back to back, until 5:30 p.m. The length of and number of sessions may vary by event depending on registration.
