GVC Advanced HPDE at the Glen 


New!!  Garage bays are now available for two-day registrants!

This event is open to advanced track drivers  and provides a great opportunity to further develop your high performance driving skills. The unique DE format has two run groups, faster and slower, alternating every half-hour each day.  You assign yourself to one or the other run group according to your preferred pace and comfort level. Regardless of which run group you choose, all drivers have the option to drive in either group at any time when the track is "green" as long as appropriate respect is paid to the run group's pace and "culture".  All standard BMW safety protocols and passing rules will be in effect.

LOTS of track time!

Registration is limited to 70 cars to prevent overcrowding, so early registration is highly encouraged.

To be confirmed for this event, drivers must satisfy one or more of the following criteria:

  • BMW CCA: Group S (or equivalent); Group 2 (advanced) and upper-level Group 3 (intermediate) drivers previously signed off to solo; SLIP rating L3 or higher.

  • PCA: white or black run group.

  • MSF-certified Level 1 or 2 instructors in good standing.

  • Professional or amateur (club) racers with valid competition licenses.

Please be sure your motorsportreg logbook is up to date.

Instructors are not assigned, but are available by special arrangement if you need a bit of help.

If you are unsure whether you qualify, please contact  Bill O'Neill (GVC Chief Instructor).

Guests are welcome to attend and enjoy the sights and sounds of WGI, but must have their names added to the Guest list to gain admittance to the track if arriving separately.  All guests must sign the GVC waiver immediately upon arrival.

Two-day event:  $595 (max. 80 drivers)

Garage rental (optional):  $60 (half-bay for both days; two-car max. per bay).
