2023 RSP-PCA Waterford Hills Driver's Ed Sept. 12

Waterford Hills

About this event

The 2023 driving season is winding down, but we're not done yet!!!

Registration is Open!!

PCA's Rally Sport Region is having our last Waterford event of the season!  But, remember that we're going to GingerMan the last weekend of September.  ALL DRIVERS, 18 YEARS AND OLDER, ARE WELCOME! 

PCA's Rally Sport Region and its team of nationally recognized instructors will conduct a driver's education event at the technically challenging and newly repaved 1.4 mile Waterford Hills road course. Come out and see how enjoyable a driver’s education event at Waterford Hills can be! 

All drivers will be placed in run groups based on experience. If you are a beginner you will be on the track with other beginners and an instructor will be with you in the car. More experienced drivers will be placed accordingly.  

Gates open at 7:30 AM. Registration opens at 8:00 AM, depending on traffic for the Registrar. Please bring your driver's license, completed technical inspection form, and helmet to registration. You will be asked to sign the Track Waiver and PCA Waiver (if you didn't sign the E-waivers) and then you will be given your packet which will have the schedule of the day and the numbers to put on your car window.  MANDATORY DRIVER'S MEETING will be held at 8:40 AM. Your Instructor will do a final tech inspection in the Paddock.

Come on out to the track September 12th whether it is your first driving event or one of many.
