Driver Groups: HPDE will be split into three groups.
New to HPDE drivers will start in this group. There will be a highly experienced lead instructor on-site that will work with you and teach you the in's and out's of HPDE including line, speed, how to approach a turn, what gear you should be in, proper way to brake, etc. Passing is very limited in the beginner sessions.
Drivers in the intermediate group will drive without instructors. Passing is limited and should be done in the specified zones and "point by's" in this group are required. It is the passing driver's responsibility to make sure all passes are executed in a safe and controlled manner.
This class is for the most experienced HPDE drivers. There are no passing restrictions, however, passing still needs to be approached with extreme caution and proper track etiquette - "point by's" are required. It is the passing driver's responsibility to make sure all passes are executed in a safe and controlled manner. This event is not a race - leave a clear passing lane and do not force a pass to be made late. This is the highest level of driving in HPDE offered by Stacked On Track and all drivers should be highly experienced and have a great knowledge of high performance driving.
All event times will be sent to event participants the week of the event. Anticipate a 6 A.M. load in time, 9 A.M. go live time and a 6 P.M. end time.
