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
