RSR Waterford Hills Beginner-Focused DriverEd 5/10

Waterford Hills

About this event

The 2022 driving season has arrived!

Have you seen our 2022 hero image?  Phoebe Mather, our Waterford CDI's daughter, is busy working on her Porsche in preparation for our Beginner's HPDE.  Are YOU going to be ready with your ride?

PCA's Rally Sport Region is continuing our tradition of holding a special program for low or no experience drivers.  But this does NOT mean only beginners/novices are invited!  ALL DRIVERS, 18 YEARS AND OLDER, ARE WELCOME! 

PCA's Rally Sport Region and its team of nationally recognized instructors will conduct a driver's education event at the technically challenging and newly repaved 1.4 mile Waterford Hills road course. Come out and take part in this special Beginner's Day event and see how enjoyable a driver’s education event at Waterford Hills can be! 

All drivers will be placed in run groups based on experience. If you are a beginner you will be on the track with other beginners and an instructor will be with you in the car. More experienced drivers will be placed accordingly.

COVID: Since we cannot predict what the status of the pandemic will be for this DE, stay tuned to this registration site and watch for MSR Email blasts to stay up to date in case we need to adjust our instruction protocols.

SCHEDULE: Gates open at 7:30 AM. Registration opens at 8:00 AM, depending on traffic for the Registrar. Please bring your driver's license, completed technical inspection form, and helmet to registration. You will be asked to sign the Track Waiver and PCA Waiver if you didn't sign the E-waivers and then you will be given your packet which will have the schedule of the day and the numbers to put on your car window.  MANDATORY DRIVER'S MEETING will be held at 8:40 AM in the paddock. Your Instructor will do a final tech inspection in the Paddock.

Come on out to the track May 10th whether it is your first driving event or one of many.
