High Performance Drivers Introduction – HPDI


The High Performance Drivers Introduction is a “101” on track program introducing new drivers to the hobby of recreational performance driving. Here's what its about:


• Introducing new drivers to the recreational performance driving.

• Creating a lower cost, lower time commitment program to make it easier for drivers to give the sport a try.

• Breaking down the barriers of entry to the sport by keeping groups small, concentrated, and social.

• Creating more prepared drivers – demonstrating what to expect from a performance driving event, as well as demonstrating what is needed and expected from a driver and their vehicle.

• Makes for a great car club or group activity!
