Make plans to join us for our annual HPDE at Barber Motorsports Park! The goal of our HPDE is to teach driving skills on a closed road course that you can apply to your everyday driving. If you've never attended or are relatively new to the HPDE, as a safety-first focused event, we pair you with a seasoned instructor coupled with classroom instruction to help you learn the most from the event. This is not a racing event. You do not have to own a BMW to attend. Sign up today! We hope you will join us!
