GVC & Boston Chapter HP Driving School

September 27, 2019 to September 29, 2019
Join GVC and our colleagues in the Boston Chapter for our final Ultimate Driving School at the Glen this year. Open to drivers at all skill levels. If you've never driven on a race track before, try out our "Novice Track Day", an affordable one-day school on Friday specially designed for beginners.
Students are divided into run groups based on skill level. Student run groups at this school include Novice (Group 4), Intermediate (Group 3), Advanced (Group 2), and Group S/Independent Study Group (Group 1). Drivers select a run group during registration. The student registrar reviews your selection and makes a final assignment based primarily on experience and prior evaluations (if any). Adjustments may also be made during the school to place you in the group best suited to your skill level and pace. Track sessions for each group sequence on a rotating schedule. Between track sessions and mandatory classroom meetings you'll have time to attend to your car and socialize with your fellow driving enthusiasts. Drivers in Groups 2-4 are each assigned a personal in-car instructor for the weekend. Classroom sessions taught by a senior instructor are scheduled separately for each run group and focused on topics relevant to the group's experience level. Friday: Open track for all EXCEPT Novice Track Day students Instructors Group S ("Friday add-on" or "Friday ONLY" options) Advanced (Group 2) with prior approval (see below); max.10 students Novice Track Day (Group 4);max. 20.
