HPDE Details

2020 HPDE Schedule and Registration

June 2020 Track Update:  Note, our DE format is subject to change based upon the health and safety guidance in effect at that time.  We are working on a variety of options, should they be needed.  As of now the track is expected to be open and we are looking forward to the green flag!  If you have not already completed and returned to Jeff Darby a PCA National COVID-19 waiver, please click here to download.  Please print, sign, take a picture of both pages and return to Jeff Darby.  We encourage you to keep a copy on your phone for ease of sharing.  It is likely that you may have to sign the waiver more than once; for example, our HPDE events will each require this waiver, as could other events where we are unable to verify your signed waiver being on file.  Please take care of this ASAP as we want to avoid a situation where you are turned away from an event for anyone in your party not having this waiver completed.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and prompt attention to this matter.

June 16th 2020 Track Updates:
For all of us track rats, the time is here to once again enjoy your Porsche as it was meant to be.
***UPDATE – other than DEX, all groups are sold out.
Father’s Day Gift?
There are only 4 spots left for our Driver’s Ed eXperience (DEX).  
If you have found yourself curious, but don’t want to commit to the full DE, this is a nice way to get your feet wet.  It is Saturday only and includes the same classes as our Group 1 students along two 20 minutes sessions on the track – both with your instructor, one session riding in their car and one driving your own car.  Helmets not required as you will not exceed highway speeds.  As with regular paid registration, DEX includes an exclusive, special edition event t-shirt.  All of this for only $100!  The memories are priceless.

May 2020 Track Updates:
For all of us track rats, the time is near to once again enjoy your Porsche as it was meant to be.
  • Our Father’s Day weekend High Performance Driver Education (HPDE or DE) event @ the incredible Barber Motorsports Park is shaping up very nicely.  At present we plan to have novice instructed and the Driver’s Ed eXperience (DEX) as usual; albeit with some additional precautions.  Note, we are subject to decisions by governmental bodies and PCA National.  Should a change be necessary, updates will be sent from our DE chairman, Woody Robbins to those who have registered.  With so few track events this year, we are already close to capacity.  If you have signed up, but not paid – you are not registered.  Once our small run groups are filled, registration will close.  To register, please click here.
  • Our Peach State friends have a DE at Road Atlanta on June 6th & 7th.  They extended a personal invitation to the Alabama Region; please join them if you can.  For more info click here.
  • PTX (Porsche Track eXperience) is keeping us in the know for their events that will feature maximum track time.  For the latest info click here.
