The 2021 driving season has arrived!

PCA's Rally Sport Region is offering a special program for low or no experience drivers-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.

BREAKING NEWS!!! Due to the continuing COVID pandemic we will not be doing 100% in-car instructing. Depending on any federal, state or local restrictions in-place on May 11th and for the safety of our instructors & students we will be following PCA's/MSF's Lead-Follow protocol where a "pod" consisting of an instructor in his/her car plus 1 or 2 students following in their cars to learn the proper line around the track.  But, if regulations loosen plus both the student and instructor feel safe together some instructors have indicated they'll be willing to do in-car instruction.  Stay tuned for more info as we develop the program.

BREAKING NEWS #2: Thanks for keeping up with the fluidity of the situation!
Instead of a Zoom meeting for the Green (Novice) group there will be hand-outs emailed regarding Lead-Follow.  Please PLEASE PLEASE read them before the event.  Green classroom will be in-person at the track socially distanced with masks
in the classroom or under the pavilion. Questions about the Lead-Follow hand-outs can be asked there.

Green group will be a Lead-Follow group only. Due to the updated CDC guidelines allowing vaccinated individuals together in close quarters, we will now be allowing in-car instruction for students with proof of vaccinations.  Instructors paired with in-car students will also require proof of vaccination.  Please email a picture/scan of your proof of vaccination card to the registrar (Charlie @ before you arrive at the track if you wish to sign up for in-car instruction! In-car instruction will be held in the Yellow run group. Blue and Red run groups will be run as normal. No
ride-alongs in Blue or Red groups unless both individuals have proof of vaccinations. 

If you do not feel comfortable Emailing your proof, give Charlie your best "blood oath" and/or Boy Scout honor pledge and I will check the box.  But, PLEASE bring your proofs -- copy on your smartphone is OK -- to the Registration table.

We will be doing non-contact temp checks at Registration. 

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 Waivers and PCA Waivers (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.
