GVC HPDE #107
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 HPDE is open to experienced autocrossers, HPDE drivers at the intermediate, advanced, Solo, and Instructor levels, and club racers.
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 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 in the morning running separately, drive in either group 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. A classroom session will be held to review track layout and procedures.
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: Solo-qualified drivers (White or Black run group).
MSF-certified Level 1 or 2 instructors, and active GVC Instructors in good standing.
Amateur (club) racers with valid competition licenses.
Autocrossers with verifiable experience.
Please be sure your logbook is up to date.
Unsure whether you qualify? Please contact Bill O'Neill or Jay Sofianek (GVC Chief Instructors).
To keep crowding at this small track to a minimum during the pandemic emergency, participants are limited to two guests. All guests must sign the NYST and GVC waivers immediately upon arrival.
Two-day Fee: $550
