High Performance Drivers' Education (HPDE)

drivers educationZone 9 offers many opportunities to take part in the PCA High Performance Drivers' Education program.

For those of us who would like to go one step beyond autocrossing, there is the PCA HPDE program, which provides a controlled environment for learning about the upper edges of your and your car's performance capabilities. PCA HPDE events take place on a closed-circuit, require a more rigorous technical inspection process, and provide PCA certified driving instructors for drivers of all levels of experience.
