Black Rock 2018 Drivers Events

Information for Black Rock Driving Events.




There will be some SIGNIFICANT changes to our High Performance Drivers Education (HPDE) event this year.

We are very pleased to have Steve Cropper as our Head Instructor and his merry band of Professional Certified Instructors returning again this year to help us with this great event. The Instructors will be offering new challenges so all levels of drivers can enjoy their driving experience to the next level and maintain safety and vehicle integrity.
The HPDE will run on Saturday as two events, morning and afternoon sessions. Both sessions will require the drivers to comply with PCA guidelines and have their Porsche, Technical inspections sheets completed prior to Saturday’s event.
The morning session will run from 8:00am to 12:00pm and will be tailored to novice or first time drivers. This session will emphasize improved driving skills, vehicle capability, track safety and track regulations. There will be a number of exercises that the students will partake in. After the exercises the Instructors will drive the track with each student to advise and become familiar with the track layout, then each student will drive with an instructor present. Novice drivers and first time participants must partake in the HPDE Classroom session on Friday from 4:00 to 5:00pm in the Resort Ballroom.
Lunch will be offered at track from 12:00pm to 1:00pm the BBQ lunch is provided by UVFB (by donation).
Afternoon session will be run from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm. This session will be a SOLO EVENT to limit the number of cars on the track to 3 or 4 at a time, for 4 or 5 laps. This session will be open to all levels of drivers. Intermediate and Advanced drivers are not required (but are welcome) to partake in the morning session. In order to maximize the number of solo sessions and laps per session the Instructors will organize this event to group’s, according to driver experience level. Instructors will be available to ride with any driver.
