See you at the track!
This is not a racing school but rather a high performance driving event (HPDE) on a race circuit under close supervision by instructors. You will be taught the fine art of car control and fundamentals of vehicle dynamics. You will be able to learn the capabilities of your car and improve your driving skills at speeds that are not permitted on public roads. All drivers will be instructed on safety regulations, and general etiquette on the track. In addition to the “Pre-Event Safety Inspection” which the driver is required to have performed, an “On-Site Safety Inspection” will be performed prior to the event. A confirmation notice that explains the Safety Inspection requirements will be sent to you approximately 3 – 4 weeks before the event and after registration and payment are received and accepted. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you review the Pre-Event Safety Inspection PRIOR to registering. It can be found under "Forms" at PatroonHPDE.com or click HERE.
