About this event
St. Louis Region SCCA Performance Driving Event (PDE)
Social distancing and masks in the registration room will be mandatory. Any participant not willing to comply will be asked to leave without a refund. Everything went very smoothly in 2020 and we intend to keep it that way this year!
We will not be offering in-car instruction until further notice due to the ongoing pandemic. All novice group students will be paired with an instructor and we will be doing lead-follow again this year.
We offer four 20 minute sessions for $170. At this event, you will have an opportunity to work with an instructor and practice car handling and precision driving in your own car on the 1.6 mile road course at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway. This is a non-competitive, non-timed event. Drivers are grouped by prior experience. Drivers are required to wear a helmet, long or short sleeved shirt, and long pants.
Drivers will be assigned to the novice, intermediate or advanced groups based on prior driving experience and performance. Novice students will have an instructor with them on track at all times. Intermediate students will have the option to have an instructor ride along or not. Advanced students can request an instructor for a session and are subject to instructor availability.
* If you have not driven with our program before, you must register for the novice group. If you have significant track experience, reach out to the registrar ahead of time, but most people will need to start in the novice group with us.
