About this event

2024 Keep on Rockin' at HPR HPDE

RMR/PCA High Performance Driver Education Event at High Plains Raceway

Saturday and Sunday July 27th and July 28th

Join us for RMR’s next HPDE event of the season at High Plains Raceway (where “Fast” never stops!).  Do you want to go fast?  Can I get a “Hell Yeah”!  Would you like to better understand your car’s capabilities without the risk of the cops going after your hot rod Porsche?  This DE (Drivers Education) event is ready to rock and you don’t want to miss it!  As always RMR’s rock-star instructors will be available for drivers who need them. Register early as these rockin’ events always sell out “fast”!

  • There will be lunchtime charity rides at a cost of $20 per vehicle. You can drive any roadworthy vehicle at highway speeds and you can take as many passengers as you have seatbelts, no helmet required. The proceeds will benefit the event’s charity the Food Bank of the Rockies.
  • The club will provide refreshments for Beer:30 on both Saturday and Sunday.  There will be a Saturday evening group dinner available for an additional cost of $25/person. You can select this dinner option when you register.
  • Weather permitting the CDI team will lead a Walk the Track session after Saturday’s dinner.  These track walks are a great way to better understand how to choose the best line through a turn to set you up to rock and roll faster!
