“MIXING IT UP” HPDE & AUTOCROSS
Alpine Mountain Region Porsche Club of America
April 14th and 15th, 2017 at Pikes Peak International Raceway
Sponsored by Elite Deck and Fence
Want to do an Autocross? We have that!
Want to do an HPDE (High Performance Driving Event)? We have that!
Want to do Both? We have that too!
We are very happy to announce that we are hitting the track at Pikes Peak
International Raceway with a combined HPDE and Autocross event. We will offer a Saturday Autocross, Sat and Sunday HPDE and even a combination of a Saturday Autocross and Sunday HPDE (this is a great introduction for new drivers to experience both great driving experiences).
For the HPDE, PPIR is a great track for the beginner and experienced driver alike. We will be running about 2/3 of the famed oval, plus the challenging infield road course section, so you get the best of both worlds. If you haven’t felt the thrill of going flat out around a banked oval, then hitting a tight road course, it’s something you need to experience.
The Saturday Autocross will be at the same PPIR facility to the west of the track. A great open lot will be set up by our Autocross Master (aka Tim Drummer) and run with extensive support form Rocky Mountain Region PCA from up north.
The facilities here are the best in the State, with a fully paved paddock, a large indoor viewing area, and a view of the entire circuit from atop the scoring tower. Plus, it’s only an hour south of the Denver Tech Center, just south of Colorado Springs, right off I-25. RV Parking Friday night to Sunday is also available.
As part of this event, we’ll be hosting an onsite dinner on Saturday night in the track’s beautiful banquet room right after “Beer Thirty.” This dinner is open to everyone, so sign up for the festivities even if you’re not participating in the HPDE or Autocross. Each driving day will end with the traditional “Beer Thirty” celebration.
As with all HPDE events, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from our dedicated corps of high performance driving instructors, who will give you one-on-one instruction on how to drive your car in a safe, fun and fast manner around this exciting 1.3 mile track.

“BEAT THE HEAT” HPDE — Pueblo Motorsports Park
You spoke…We listened. You love the Pueblo track and the events we hold there. We hear you, we love it too! We are returning to Pueblo Motorsports Park in May and the weather should be beautiful!!! We’ve arranged for paid corner workers again this year. That’ll leave more time for instructors to work with their students, as well as allow our more experienced drivers to kick back and relax between run sessions. So, no more haranguing from Control to meet at the equipment truck before you’ve even gotten out of your car. More importantly, there’ll be more track time for everybody and a run schedule we can actually adhere to. Remember, the driver meeting is MANDATORY and you need to be there at 8:00 am each day. Beer:30 will commence as soon as the last group is finished and the track goes cold.
If you’re NEW to HPDE’s, you will be assigned an instructor to teach the basics and will get plenty of seat time to practice what you’ve learned. You’ll be in a run group with your peers, so you won’t be running in the same group as the more experienced drivers. Instructors will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis, so be sure to register early, so we can pair you with an instructor. Novices are required to attend the Ground School that is held before each of their track sessions. Everyone is welcome to attend the ground school, the times and meeting place will be announced in the driver meeting.
The host hotel is the Wingate by Wyndham, 4711 N. Elizabeth St., Pueblo, CO, 81008, (located just off I-25), about 4 miles from the track. They are offering a special discount rate ($99.00) for HPDE attendees. When reserving, just ask for the “Porsche Club” rate. The hotel is holding a block of rooms until April 27th, so reserve now by calling 719-586-9000!
