Are you new to track driving?  Never driven with ARPCA?  We have a long history of making everyone feel welcome!  All ARPCA HPDE events are a great opportunity to drive your car on a world-class track, enhance your driving skills, have fun with a great bunch of people, and make new friends!

Track Tour

There will be a Track Tour Friday evening, starting at 5:25 pm led by one of our senior instructors. While focused on track orientation for new drivers, everyone is welcome to attend. Contact Carol at track@arpca.com with questions.  

**Please note that ARPCA has no affiliation with the link to a "Virtual Track Walk" on the right side of the page, under "Venue".  This link is a for-profit tutorial produced by a private entity intended for advanced drivers, and those who will be racing at Watkins Glen.   ARPCA does not endorse nor recommend this product for novice/beginner drivers attending our HPDE.

Advanced Solo Lapping (ASL) event

Advanced Solo Lapping is Friday.  Instructors are not provided, A high level of track driving experience and skill is required to qualify. ASL drivers are also required to register for the weekend DE.  The events are not sold separately.

Approved ARPCA Instructors are automatically accepted. If you have previously attended an ARPCA ASL event at this track you will be accepted.

For all others, indicate your interest in attending ASL when completing the registration form. Please make sure your logbook of experience in your member profile is up to date. We will use this to evaluate your ability to qualify. We may also ask for a recommendation from the Chief Driving Instructor (CDI) most familiar with your track driving experience. We will contact you by e-mail if we need your CDI’s contact information. We are very careful to only have qualified participants at ASL. This precaution insures the enjoyment but primarily the safety of those who will be sharing the track on Friday.
