Road Course Acclimation Program


Designed for FIRST-TIME road course drivers, this program gives interested students an opportunity to see what road course driving is all about.  The Acclimation Program includes three classroom sessions, two car control sessions, two 20-minute controlled on track sessions, and instruction.

Upgrade to a full Novice day to add afternoon sessions and an additional 1.5 hours of track time!


We are planning to run PittRace's full course.


We follow AutoInterests' rules and regulations as the sanctioning body for the HPDE event, for more information see our HPDE rules page here and our vehicle prep & TECH page here.

Read all rules and make sure your vehicle is qualified and that you have adequate safety equipment because all fees are strictly non-refundable as per our Refund Policy & Purchase Policy.

Drivers need to arrive at the track at 7:00am for check-in and tech inspection.  Please check your email, as pre-event information will be emailed about a week prior to the event.

All vehicles driving on track are required to have numbers.  Acclimation students, your numbers are included in your registration price.

DRIVERS: please review pre-event information here.
