This event also includes GGR's second Club Race of the 2018 season.  (Registration for the Club Race can be found at: http://register.pca.org.)

Ground School:  Required for those new to track driving and/or GGR DE events, and is included with the Student registration fee.  Ground school will cover safety, preparation, at-track instruction format, introduction of the scheduled track configuration, as well as event protocol and schedule.  The next ground school date / time / location is in the works...

At Track Orientation:  Friday evening preceding the event.  Complementary to Ground School.  Mandatory for beginners.  All are welcome.  Also good for experienced drivers making their first visit to this course.

PCA - HPDE Insurance Program:
In June 2009, Porsche Club of America and Lockton Affinity announced the PCA - HPDE Insurance Program. This innovative program provides single-event physical damage coverage to PCA members who attend High-Performance Driver's Education events. Over the past ten years many auto insurers have changed their policies to exclude coverage for claims "occurring on a surface used for racing", "at a high-performance driving event", or "use of an auto at a racetrack". Your existing auto insurance policy may not cover damage to your car at the track.

Information on the PCA HPDE Insurance Program can be found here:

Coverage from other companies may be available as well.

Does Your Insurance Exclude HPDEs?

If your street insurance excludes on-track driving, an HPDE Insurance policy can buy you peace of mind

Affordable physical damage insurance for on-track incidents covers you, a co-driver & instructor with an agreed-value policy. See details...
