Colorado State Patrol Track

About this event

 

2023 Track 101 HPDE

Sunday, August 6, 2023

Registration opens on Sunday March 26, 2023 at 9:11am for the event planned just for beginner track drivers!  RMR-PCA are pleased to announce our beginner High Performance Driver Education event at the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) Track in Golden, Colorado. 

All drivers welcome! “First-timers” are welcomed and encouraged! In fact, each year many of our drivers have never been on a track before. Additionally, whether this is your first time on the track or you have experience, we have a run group to match your skills.
The event is open to all makes of cars (see Important Notice below). Convertibles must have roll-over protection. SUVs must be German manufactured. If you are unsure, contact our CDIs and they will make the final determination. 

Registration opens on Sunday, March 26 and closes on Monday, July 31, 2023. You must be registered by July 31 in order to participate.  

This event is limited to 60 drivers. This is a very popular event and we encourage you to register quickly before it sells out!

Important Notice: Due to space constraints at the CSP track, attendance will be limited. Preference will be given to Porsche Club of America (PCA) members. Interested non-PCA members should still sign up as soon as possible. Any remaining slots will be released to non-PCA members by July 19th in order of registration.

Cost is $115 per driver, which includes a fun-filled day of driving, instruction and a BBQ lunch provided by On-Site-Tires.  Chris Macarak the owner of On-Site Tires will be cooking enough for your support crew as well. There are no concessions available at the track, so please plan accordingly with snacks and sports drinks, etc. We will provide cold water. Bring your own chair, as there will be limited space under the tent.

Please be aware that due to the layout of this track, you will not be able to enter or leave while the track is in use.  Coming and going will only be available at the start of the day, during lunch, and after the event. A schedule will be provided closer to the event.

You must wear cotton shirts, cotton pants or shorts, and closed-toe shoes when driving.   Bring or borrow a helmet (Snell Rated 2015 or newer). There will be a few loaner helmets available. Also, cars must pass a technical inspection. We highly recommend you have your car pre-teched during the arranged tech inspection sessions. This free tech inspection helps catch potential problems in plenty of time for them to be corrected before your track day. 

  1. You will need to have your BRAKE FLUID CHANGED within one year of the August 6 event and ready for pre-tech inspection. Every year we have disappointed participants because lack of brake fluid changes lead to pre-tech failures and cancellations.  
  2. Please DO NOT bring POP UPS! No matter how secure you think they will be, there are MANY cases where the wind kicks up gusts that send pop-ups flying...and in many cases can injure people and have damage vehicles.  
  3. Helmets: If you are new and do not have a helmet for this event, we will arrange to have loaner helmets at the event. If you already have a helmet, not that the expiration will be checked at pre-tech and at registration (they will need to be Snell rated 2015 or 2020) the day of the event. NO "half helmets" (motorcycle type), but open face helmets are okay. SNELL or M only.  If you plan on using a loaner helmet, we suggest bringing your own helmet head sock. 
  4. NO PETS are allowed at the Colorado State Patrol Track. It is a dangerous place for them...very hot and a lot of rattlesnakes.
  5. All cars must have a passenger seat with equivalent restraint because of driver needed instruction.
  6. On-Site Tires will be at the track so if you have tire issues or need extra air, they will be there for you!
  7. Lunch time charity rides will take place with a $20 donation per car (suggested) Charity funds will go to the important work of the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation.

This Event will be using Deferred Billing. If you are paying with a credit card, it will not be charged until Wednesday, August 2, 2023. 
You must be 18 or older with a valid driver's license to participate in this event.  Your driver's license will be checked at event check in.

Two (2) driver shared cars will be placed in separate run groups appropriate for the event and the driver skill level.  

The charity for the Track 101 DE is the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation. The foundation supports the families of State Troopers killed in the line of duty.
