About this event
Join the Washington DC Region SCCA for a High Performance Track Education (HPDE) event, with Time Trials (TT), plus one-day Instructor's Clinic, March 26-27 on the Summit Point Shenandoah Circuit. We encourage all experience levels to join us, from the driver that's never been on a track to Time Trials competitors. For more information on our HPDE and TT programs, visit: WDCR SCCA
Saturday's format is different than usual. An Instructor's training clinic will be run in parallel with an HPDE for solo Intermediate and Advanced drivers (tons of track time).
Saturday's Instructor Clinic is by invitation only. If you do not instruct with us and are interested, contact the Chief Instructor, Joe Obernberger (firstname.lastname@example.org). Otherwise, if you don't have an invitation and want to attend, contact Joe Obernberger.
Saturday's HPDE is limited to WDCR-SCCA Intermediate and Advanced students (no in-car instruction or coaching is availble). You'll get a ton of track time, but need to be flexible to allow for schedule changes during the Instructor Clinic.
Sunday, March 27th will be our standard format, with HPDE for Novice (instructed), Intermediate, Advanced, plus Time Trials.
The mission of the SCCA is to fuel a safe, fun, and exciting motorsports experience for automotive enthusiasts. For SCCA's full mission statement, visit Mission, Vision & Values - Sports Car Club of America
