HPDE stands for High Performance Driver Education. It's code for: bring a car onto a track to learn Performance Driving. This is not racing. It is track driving. You will have an instructor work with you on the track, which will make you more confident and a better driver overall. And, you will have a smile you can't remove!!!
The experiences will vary, but these experiences will generally take half of a day.
Autocross takes place on the FCP Euro Proving Grounds; a .52 mile permanent, paved road course that's fun and easy to drive using the Just Hands Racing car. These programs allow you to learn car control in a high-performance setting without the higher risks.
Track Tapas Days is a newly launched program at Lime Rock Park. Tapas Day is a two-hour program that allows participants the opportunity to experience both the FCP Euro Proving Grounds (see Autocross below) and the 1.5-mile iconic road racing course. Beginner level participants learn from a trained driving instructor all while utilizing the Just Hands Racing car.
Not yet ready to be the one behind the wheel, but you still want to experience the thrill? Sit in the passenger seat and get the rush of the track with one of our drivers.
This car will be "track prepped", meaning it will have a lot of modifications not found in regular street cars. Almost all modifications were made for safety!! The chances of you needing any of it is minimal, but safety first is paramount in any sport.
Most important is the hand control system. Since we want people to feel comfortable, we are outfitting the car with left and right side have controls. We will have a Veigel Classic II for right hand drivers and MPD Push Right Angle for left handers. We will have both Veigel Soft Knob Grip, Single Pin Foam Grip and the Tri-Pin steering aides, pending on your dexterity.
Since we are currently building the car, check out Torsten's car.
It's very safe. There is no random passing. You can only pass if someone gives you a "point by" (an arm signal to you to say they see you and are allowing you to pass). Similarly, no one can pass you without you giving a point-by. That makes things very safe!!
Thanks to HMS Motorsports and Nicholas Tobin Insurance we have SNELL 2020 Helmets with integrated Trac-Coms radios (the best, in our opinion!) so you can talk with your instructor. We also provice HANS devices for Head and Neck protection. And soon, we will have NOVEC fire suppression thanks to AMT Motorsport.
