Tired of riding out the pandemic? Ready for Spring? 

Come join us in the beautiful Catskill Mountains for our second HPDE at the New York Safety Track! 

This Advanced HPDE is open to expert and advanced track drivers, Club Racers and Instructors. 

For advanced drivers, this challenging circuit offers a great opportunity to further develop your high performance driving skills in an open-track format.  There will be two run groups, fast and faster, which will alternate on track every each day, all day.  You assign yourself to one or the other run group according to your preferred pace and comfort level.  Regardless of which run group you choose initially, after a couple sessions running separately, all drivers have the option to drive in either group at any time when the track is "green" as long as appropriate respect is paid to the run group's pace and "culture". All standard BMW CCA safety protocols and passing rules will be in effect.  Instructors are available by special arrangement for those new to NYST and need a bit of help.

To be confirmed for this event, drivers must satisfy one or more of the following criteria:

  • BMW CCA: Group S (or equivalent); Group 2 (advanced) and upper-level Group 3 (intermediate) drivers previously signed off to solo; SLIP rating L3 or higher.

  • PCA: white or black run group.

  • MSF-certified Level 1 or 2 instructors, and GVC Instructors in good standing.

  • Professional or amateur (club) racers with valid competition licenses.

Please be sure your motorsportreg logbook is up to date.

If you are unsure whether you qualify for the lapping group, please contact  Bill O'Neill or Jay Sofianek (GVC Chief Instructors).

To keep crowding at this small track to a minimum, participants are limited to two guests. All guests must sign the GVC waiver immediately upon arrival.

Two-day event:  $550
