PERFORMANCE DRIVING GROUP

Performance Driving Group is a provider of  track days commonly known as HPDE (high performance driver education) where drivers get the opportunity to bring their cars to several race tracks in Florida, and drive on these race tracks at high speeds legally and in a predictable controlled environment. There is NO racing or timing at these events.

Daytona International Speedway, Sebring International Raceway and Homestead Miami Speedway are the tracks where we host our events.

First timers with no previous experience register in the Beginner group so they have the option to request an instructor to ride along in the passenger seat, giving them some instruction on driving and safety. Track driving is completely different than street driving and like all sports, it takes some teaching to learn it.

There is a 30 minute classroom session after the drivers meeting for Beginners, where the lead instructor will give some instruction on car control and passing rules. This is where drivers will get familiar with how to get on and off track, passing rules and flag talk. There are workers at every corner displaying different flags from time to time, and the flag talk will be about what each flag means.

Before a driver can enter the race track, a helmet most be worn, and a class designation decal must be visible by the course marshal. A self tech sheet needs to be completed and brought to registration before you can go on track.

There are 3 levels of drivers; Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Drivers will be placed according to their experience level.

All sales are final and there are no cash refunds for no shows.
