About this event
Welcome To Our High Performance Driver Education Events!
HPDRE is our in-house track day program run on our challenging and fun 2-mile-long,12-turn road course. Here are the dates for our 2023 HPDRE events: Saturday 4/22; Saturday 5/13; Saturday 6/10; Saturday 7/8 OR Sunday 7/9 (TBD); Saturday 9/9 OR Sunday 9/10 (TBD); Saturday 11/4. The registration pages for these other HPDRE events will be on MotorsportReg.com soon, but in the meantime, save the dates on your calendar and go ahead and get registered for the 4/22 event!
For experienced performance drivers, our HPDRE events are a great opportunity to have some track day fun with your sports car or race car, alongside a bunch of other like-minded individuals.
For those that are new to performance driving, our HPDRE events are the next step on the "ladder of speed" after our Track Attack events. Not only will you learn to master the complexities of our track, you will learn valuable performance driving techniques and concepts, and you will build performance driving skills. These techniques and skills will not only help you to safely control your car at-speed on the race track, but many of them will help you to be a safer driver on the street.
Entry fees start at $250 per day, and there will be 3 Run Group levels: novice, intermediate, and advanced. Novice participants will have access to over 2-hours of track time, 2 or 3 classroom sessions, and an instructor to work with them throughout the day!
