About this event
PALOOZA ’21 HPDE
August 28th and 29th, 2021 at Pueblo Motorsports Park
The Alpine Mountain Region Porsche Club of America will be hosting a late summer High-Performance Drivers Education (HPDE) event at the Pueblo Motorsports Park. Pueblo Motorsports Park is one of our favorite tracks. The 2.2 mile 10 turn track has fun elevation changes with a terrific “flow.” And the weather should be beautiful in late August!
As with all HPDE events, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from our dedicated corps of high performance driving instructors, who will give you one-on-one instruction on how to drive your car in a safe, fun and fast manner.
We will be offering In-Car instruction for this event. Your priority in being confirmed for an event will depend on the date and time you register. Be sure to register early. Registration closes Monday, August 23. All drivers will be “wait-listed” upon registration until the event CDI confirms your driving status and can confirm that an instructor is available if you need one. Your experience will be greatly enhanced if you register for both days. Two day registrants requesting an instructor will have priority when instructor assignments are made. Whether or not you will be allowed to drive solo vs. require an instructor at this event will be at the sole discretion of the AMR CDI Committee. Novices must attend the Ground School held before each of their track sessions on Saturday.
