Dominion Raceway HPDRE - Saturday 05/04/24

Dominion Raceway

About this event

Welcome To Our High Performance Driver Education Events!

Thanks for checking-out our Saturday 05/04/23 HPDRE event!  HPDRE is our in-house track day and driver-education event run on our challenging and fun 2-mile-long,12-turn road course.  We plan to have additional HPDRE events on the following dates: 

Saturday 6/8  |  Saturday 7/13  |  Saturday 8/17  |  Saturday 11/2

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 $295 per day, however, there is a $20 "Early Bird" discount if you register early, so REGISTER TODAY so that you don't miss that discount! Once the Early Bird Discount period ends, the standard registration fee will be in effect for registrations received 10 or more days before the event.  Registrations within 10-days of the event will have a Late Fee imposed.

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!  Intermediate and advanced participants will get access to over 2.5 hours of track time!
