They will have HPDE 1-4, Time Trials, Racing, Competition School and Instructor Clinic!

They will also offer a Hyperdrive option that allows your family, crew, or friends the opportunity to have one session on track with an instructor (and classroom session) and experience the thrill of driving on track in a controlled environment. They do not need to be a member to sign up for the Hyperdrive option, but they will need a vehicle.

I won a free Hyperdrive (classroom session followed by 20 minute on track session) so will running my Abarth on the road course on Saturday.
Should be fun racing without cones for a change!!

Very cool, "free" is my favorite flavor! I keep looking at the NASA schedule up at VIR in Virginia, and they seem to have some reasonable priced HPDE beginner level days too. Have fun!

Here's some video from Saturday. This was my second 20 minute session (the first was free and I couldn't resist spending money for a second session :smile:).
Unfortunately I got a bug on the camera lens; combined with the sun it caused poor quality video.
The first two laps are under double yellow (no passing anywhere on track) so are the slow ones.

I am probably going back for a full day (five 20 minute sessions) in November - it was a lot of fun!
The course is a tricky one, particularly the M's. We run them sometimes during autocross so getting better there will help me in both disciplines.

The straightaway is long and has an incline; I was reaching about 105 MPH; the corvette that was out there said he was reaching 150MPH!

You should check the THSCC track program, we have a really good HPDE program. Link below
The season is over for this year but the schedule is basically the same from year to year.
Also, I am instructor with them.
