HPDE General Notice 
If you do not see the HPDE Group that you want, that means it is full. Please email to get on the waiting list. 

HPDE 1 is where it all starts. If you've never been on track before or would like to be guaranteed an instructor, sign up for HPDE 1. We do not rent transponders for HPDE 1. Selecting the HPDE 1 option automatically assigns you an instructor. Please do not select the Instructor option. 

HPDE 2: 
HPDE 2 is for drivers that have been signed off to drive on their own, but want more time at HPDE 1 speeds and skill level. So Group 2 is Group 1 (runs with Group 1), but with no instructor assignment. We do not rent transponders for HPDE 2. 

HPDE 3: 
Saturday will work up to additional passing by the end of the day. Sunday will be a continuation, starting with limited passing and then picking up pace and passing areas in subsequent sessions. This should better prepare drivers for Group 4. Sunday only entrants should be aware of this. 

HPDE 4 is for advanced drivers with open passing skills. All HPDE 4 drivers who are new to NASA must be pre-approved by the Chief Instructor before being allowed to drive in HPDE 4. 

HPDE Cancellation policy: Full refund less $30.00 processing fee, with notice by the Monday prior to the event, otherwise no refunds. Once the car goes on track, no refunds or credits. No exceptions.
