PDG provides our group of drivers with the safest and friendliest atmosphere possible. Since our staff of individuals has been working together since 2008, our program runs flawlessly. Our staff has an extensive amount of experience in motorsports as well, and we are recognized by the entire Florida racing community for providing the best weekend track days to drivers.
We provide weekend track days for all who want to participate in this passion. We frequent the four Florida race tracks as many times as possible during the year where we provide a High Performance Driving Experience for those individuals who want to bring their cars out for a day of safe fun. Our goal is for you to drive at our events in a controlled environment while enjoying plenty of driving time. Our driving instructors are on hand for all new drivers.
We also offer rental cars for Beginner students through our partner company, Sports Car Driving Experience, who will provide the latest 2023 model C8 Corvette’s and SS Camaro’s.
