Welcome to High Performance Driver Education (HPDE)...
Dominion Raceway style!
HPDRE is all about the high-speed driving of street, track, or race prepared cars on our 2 mile, 12 turn road course. Not only will you learn to master the complexities of our track, you will gain valuable driving techniques and build skills that can only make you a safer driver on the street.
Entry fees start at $250 per day. We run four groups determined by driver experience. Each group gets four 30min track sessions per day:
Green- beginner to novice drivers (est 0 to 5 HPDE days); instructor & classroom provided; restricted passing with a point-by
Blue- novice to intermediate drivers (est 5 to 10 HPDE days); check ride or solo; restricted passing with a point-by
Black- intermediate to advanced drivers (est 10 to 20+ HPDE days); check ride or solo; passing anywhere with a point-by
Red- advanced/expert drivers, licensed racers, and instructors (est 25+ HPDE days); check ride or solo; full open passing
[If you are not a beginner/novice/green driver but have not run with us before, please send a detailed track driving resume to Jim Lorimer for blue/black/red/instructor approval BEFORE REGISTERING.]
If an event is marked as an "Opentrack Format" event that means Green group is not offered. We will run three groups, Blue or Black or Red, determined by driver experience as described above. Each group gets three 30min track sessions alternating, then we have a 3 hour shared open track at the end of the day for the drivers who have demonstrated proper skill and speed all morning. This means a registered driver can get up to 4.5 hours of track time per day with the OT format!
