Performance Driving Experience (PDE)

PDE is a track day with an opportunity to work with an instructor and get experience in car handling and performance driving in your OWN CAR on a real race track!  This is  non-competitive event.  Drivers will be grouped by experience. For safety, drivers are required to wear long pants, closed shoes, and helmets when on track.

All of our events are held on the road course at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.

Novice students will each be assigned an instructor who will guide you through the basic techniques.  No prior experience required!  All passing is done by a point-by in zones specified on the track map.  This will be reviewed in the driver’s meeting the day of the event.

Intermediate students have the option of requesting an instructor when registering, but are also cleared to drive solo.  Instructor availability is limited and provided on a first-come, first-served basis.  There is an additional passing zone granted to intermediate drivers, a clear point-by is required.

Advanced students drive solo and are allowed to pass anywhere on track besides the area between start/finish and the end of turn 1.  A clear point-by is required.
