All skill levels are welcome from beginner to track veteran! 

All participants must present a valid driver's license. All drivers and passengers must be wearing long pants and long sleeve shirts made of cotton or other non-synthetic fibers.

We will split participants into 4 groups. One of the four groups will be dedicated to novice drivers who will be required to run with instructors.  Each run group can plan on four to five 20 to 25 minute sessions, and all solo drivers may take part in the one hour open track session at the end of the day.

Run Groups:

Green: This is the novice group for anyone who has zero, or very limited track experience (2 weekends or less).  An instructor will be provided for all members of this group.

Yellow: This is the Intermediate group, which is for anyone with multiple weekends of experience. Instructors are available to all members of this group, but not required once the driver has been signed off to drive Solo.

Blue: This is the Advanced run group, which is for anyone with many track weekends, no instructors are required. You should have a solid history of being safe on track, being aware of all your surroundings, knowing all the flags, etc. We are offering a promotional discount of $25 off to fill out the Advanced group.

White: This is the instructor run group.  NOTE: If you help instruct at the HPDE, you will get emailed a thank-you discount code sent so you can run Gripfest on Sunday for $75 off!
