RMR/PCA Event at High Plains Raceway

May 1st & 2nd, 2021

Join us for the first HPR event of the year!  An excellent team of instructors & volunteers to Zoom your Porsche around the best track Colorado has to offer.   We plan to offer both In-Car and Lead/Follow instruction options for novice drivers. Due to high demand we are completely sold out with a waitlist. Regstration is now closed.

Chris Macarak of On-Site Tires will provide his incredible Saturday night unique Brats ‘n’ Beer dinner with a variety of wonderful brats (in the past, it’s been rattlesnake, deer, elk antelope as well as traditional brats – who knows what Chris will cook up this year?  You will, if you attend!)  You’ll love On-Site’s personal and professional services at the track, business or home!

COVID-19, the novel corona virus, has become the forefront of immediate health concerns.  The RMR Board has been following and discussing these issues frequently.  We understand that members have concerns. In all things we do, we consider first and foremost the health and safety of our members, volunteers, and sponsors.  As we begin to host events again, we ask that everyone follow the guidelines below to help keep themselves and fellow members safe.

  1. Social distancing is key when gathering for the event.  Please maintain a distance of 6 feet from friends and staff whenever possible.
  2. Face coverings are most essential in times when social distancing is difficult.  Face coverings are meant to protect those around you in case you are unknowingly infected.  We are requiring that masks be worn at all times unless eating, drinking, or driving. Please bring your own face mask and have it on when you arrive at the gate.
  3. Avoid handshakes, fist bumps, and other forms of physical contact.  When appropriate, use hand sanitizer or wash your hands and avoid touching your face. For your health please bring some hand sanitizer and use it frequently.

Following these guidelines will help to lower the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19, and will facilitate our ability to host more events in the future.

**These guidelines are subject to change as the demands of the pandemic are constantly evolving, so we ask for everyone’s flexibility as we prepare and host this event.  Any changes will be announced by email communication before the event, or at driver’s meetings at the event. **

There will be beer-30 on both Saturday and Sunday, with certain precautions.  Concessions at the track will be open for breakfast and lunch, but will not provide dinner service so if you are staying at the track make sure to pack food for evening meals.

We are excited to support our charity for this event is Lung Fund Colorado (CU Anchutz) and you can donate during registration.

Lunchtime charity rides will be held for $20 per vehicle - Any roadworthy vehicle can drive the track at touring/highway speeds.  All proceeds benefit our charity for the event,   With COVID-19 restrictions all charity ride vehicles may have passengers, but everyone in each vehicle must have arrived at the track (traveled to/from) together.  No unrelated parties may ride together in the charity ride.
