One of the core missions of the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park has always been to promote the improvement of driver skills.
Now that the Motorsports Park has officially opened, that mission will roar into action with the inaugural High Performance Driving Event coming up later this month.
“There are tracks where you can exercise your car and practice your skills, but nothing compares to being one of the first attendees at the first HPDE event at NCM Motorsports Park,” a spokesman said.
There is still time to sign up for the first-ever NPDE event, slated for Sept. 28-29, both as instructors and participants.
Along with the instructor group, four student run groups are planned – beginners, low intermediate, high intermediate, and advanced.
Classroom sessions are slated for HPDE, Touring, and PrimeDrive Groups.
Touring laps are also available for those who don’t want to participate in the complete HPDE school and/or those with convertibles (roll bars are not needed for touring laps).
Three full sessions will be held Sept. 28, with PrimeDrive following on Sept. 29. The Touring sessions will feature instructor/pace cars interspersed to maintain speeds and mark the correct track line.
The fee for the two-day HPDE is $485 for NCM members and $525 for non-members (includes a one-year discounted membership). The Touring lap option is $120 for Sept. 28 and $25 for guest touring. The PrimeDrive on Sept. 29 is $120.
You must register for the event. For more information, contact Karen Renfrow at 270-467-8804 or Bryce Burklow at 270-781-5286.
