While amateur racing is certainly within the grasp of most track day enthusiasts, HPDE Open Track days provide all the challenge, joy, and excitement needed to appease a huge lot of us.
Unfortunately, far too many drivers take to the twisty back roads to satisfy the insatiable desire to push their cars, and driving skills, to the limit. While fun, these roads are not groomed, adequate emergency response personnel are not nearby, and unexpected obstacles abound. The result is often catastrophic, and not just for the driver.
We strive to make the roads a safer place by introducing the accessibility of performance driving on some of the country's best circuits in an affordable, low stress, high fun manner.
Please don't hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions about taking part in an HPDE event. We are here to help and eager to hear from you.
PARENTS - the best way to keep your teen safe behind the wheel is to ensure they have the skills to avoid accidents AND a truly safe outlet to exercise their desire to drive fast. Contact us for more information on teen driving programs in your area.
What is HPDE anyway???
While HPDE does offer an outstanding bridge to formalized amateur racing, HPDE is the name applied to driving schools held on race tracks designed to teach drivers proper high speed driving techniques in a safe and controlled environment.
HPDE days are low stress, high fun factor events that welcome all drivers from complete novices to veteran racers looking to get some additional track time. Just about any car is welcome, so long as it passes a safety inspection and can safely get around a race course (most SUV's don't fit into this category).
Drivers are grouped according to experience and instructors are frequently available to compliment the mandatory classroom sessions required for newer drivers. Etiquette rules are strictly enforced with open passing reserved only for experienced drivers.
In addition to have an amazing day of spirited driving, HPDE participants can expect to learn proper driving position, braking and turning techniques, track safety, and handling characteristics.
Spectators and family are always welcome (and can ride along with experienced drivers) so be sure to bring a friend!!
