HPDE 101

High Performance Driver’s Ed 101

March 18th – 9 to 11 AM

Hosted by Porsche of Colorado Springs


Ever wonder what AMR’s High Performance Driver’s Education (HPDE) is really like? Is it racing? Can I use my daily driver? Do I need special tires? Will I hurt my precious baby? Will I feel intimidated by the track junkies? If you’ve read the information on HPDEs on the PCA and AMR websites or read the periodic articles in the AMR newsletter or Panorama some or all of these questions and more have been addressed and hopefully answered. But…there’s nothing like hearing it first hand by fellow members who actually participate in HPDEs.

So, as we’ve done for the last three years, we’re planning on holding another “HPDE 101” session on March 18th at Porsche of Colorado Springs from 9:00-11:00 AM. We will supply everyone with some finger foods, coffee and juice. This fun HPDE 101 event is just 3 weeks before the first 2017 AMR HPDE. We currently have five AMR HPDEs scheduled in 2017: at La Junta Raceway on April 8-9, at Pikes Peak International Raceway on April 22-23, at Aspen Motorsports Park on June 11 (as part of Rocky Mountain High Way), at Pueblo Motorsports Park on August 19-20 and we close our season on September 30-October 1 at Pueblo Motorsports Park again. Each of these is a great learning track for beginners, but also offer challenges for our experienced drivers. The plan for HPDE 101 is for several of our HPDE participants to tell their stories about their HPDE experiences. We’ll have old hands there along with AMR folks who’ve only done HPDEs once or twice. Then we’ll open it up for questions and answers. As extra incentive, we are offering a $50 credit for all first-time newbies, which can be used by any qualifying attendees toward an AMR HPDE this season.

Who should come? Of course any member is welcome, but we’re really trying to reach those of you who’ve considered participating in a HPDE, but for a variety of reasons, have never done so. We’re also trying to reach new members (or long-time members) and spouses who haven’t really investigated the activities the club has to offer. There is NO cost to participate. Nothing, nada, zip, free…and we’ll provide the donuts and coffee. So, please come and join your Porsche friends at Porsche of Colorado Springs on March 18th.
