About this event
Welcome to High Performance Driver Education (HPDE)... Dominion Raceway style!
HPDRE is our in-house track day program. It is the next step on the "ladder of speed" after our Track Attack events. HPDRE is all about the high speed driving of street, track, or race prepared cars on our 2 mile, 12-turn road course. Not only will you learn to master the complexities of our track, you will gain valuable driving technique and build skills that can only make you a safer driver on the street. Entry fees start at $250 per day. We run four groups determined by driver experience. Each group gets four 25 minute track sessions per day. NOVICE will have at least 2 classroom sessions.
If are wanting to run in Blue, Black, Red, or Instructor Run Group, and you have not run with us before, please send a track driving resume to Jim.Lorimer@DominionRaceway.com for approval BEFORE REGISTERING.
