What is High Performance Drivers Education HPDE?
HPDE is a high performance instructional day where participants drive their own vehicles on a race track with an instructor present in the vehicle. Driving techniques are taught to make the driver safer and more aware of their environment. Ex: look way ahead and be mentally prepared, the proper line through a turn, proper heel- toe shifting etc. Once a participant has enough track experience, they may receive a sign off from an instructor and be allowed to drive solo.
Doesn’t my own automobile coverage protect my car during an HPDE event?
