SEPTEMBER 21 & 22, 2019


NOTE: The DE event is in conjunction with the National Club Race being held the same weekend.  Only experienced DE drivers are allowed to participate. To qualify for the 2019 Rocky Mountain Thunder DE you need to have:

  • If local to RMR
    • You have driven in at least two RMR/AMR HPDE events in the last two seasons
    • You have driven in at least one event at High Plains Raceway
  • If an out-of-town DE participant
    • You are an HPDE instructor or an intermediate-advanced driver having driven solo for at least 4 days on at least 2 different tracks
    • You can provide a track driving history and/or reference contacts with your local club's chief driving instructor

Registration approval for instructed DE drivers will be dependent upon the number of instructors available for the event. DE instructed drivers must have previously driven in the intermediate (Blue) run group or equivalent.  Preference will be given to more experienced instructed students, depending on the number of drivers and instructors who register, but we will try to accommodate everyone we can.  We cannot have shared driver cars unless one driver has previously run in the Expanded Passing run groups (Orange or Black).

We will have two DE run groups. The "Black" run group, for instructors and expert level drivers, will utilize PCA's "expanded passing" protocol where passing is allowed most anywhere on track with a point-by.  The "blue" run group, for advanced and intermediate level drivers, will utilize conventional passing only on the longer straights with a point-by.

DE drivers are also invited to participate in the HPR open-lapping day on Friday.

On Site Tires is sponsoring a "Brats & Brews" dinner at the HPR Pavilion on Friday night. There is no charge for "Brews and Brats" but yuou must register to attend. There will be a BBQ dinner (optional) at the HPR Pavilion on Saturday night.  Cost is $20.00
