It?s time for our flagship high-performance driver?s education (HPDE) weekend at Grattan Raceway. This is your chance to explore and hone your driving abilities on one of the most entertaining courses in America. Grattan?s 2.0 miles of exciting and challenging corners (including a 160 degree hairpin and a downhill reverse camber turn) make it one of the best around.Recent track resurfacing only further enhances the experience. All drivers?young and not so young; novice, intermediate, and advanced?are welcome. This year, the event will be held the weekend of September 20-21, 2014 (Approved advanced students and instructors are also invited to drive on Friday, September 19.) Motor City BMWCCA prides itself on offering some of the best in-car instruction in HPDE. No matter your driving level, we will help you improve! Event Type: High Performance Drivers Education (HPDE). This is a non-timed, non-competitive driving event. Participants safely learn and develop (a) high performance driving technique, (b) driving line at Grattan, and (c) situational awareness through on-track and classroom experiences. In-car instructors are provided for all students, and solo opportunities are available if student and instructor agree it?s appropriate. Driving Groups: Participants will be organized into one of three driving groups (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced) based on experience. Passing rules are more lenient for more experienced students, including open passing with a point-by for the Advanced driving group. Our goal is to foster a safe and invigorating environment for everyone! Drivers: Need to be 18 years or older and carry a valid drivers license. You will also need a Snell SA or M-rated helmet (2005 or newer). We have some helmets available to rent, but supplies are limited! Vehicles: Will need to undergo a pre-event technical inspection by a licensed mechanic. Our apologies, but we cannot accommodate convertibles (soft or retractable hardtop), targa, or T-top vehicles.
