Check out the summary and video below:
HPDE is an opportunity to enjoy your car in the safe, controlled environment of a race track.  You will improve your car skills in areas such as looking further ahead, awareness, car control in a skid, proper line on the track, threshold braking, to name a few. You will drive your car at a higher level all the while grinning from ear to ear.  You will find it challenging, fun and rewarding.

A race track is the safest place to drive a car.  Everyone is driving in the same direction.  Everyone has a single purpose and is focused on their driving.  There are corner workers that control the track and maintain a safe environment for everyone.   Drivers are divided up by skill level and into separate run groups:  Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Instructor.  Novice drivers will not be placed in the same run group as advanced drivers for both safety and enjoyment for all.
