No speed limits, no pedestrians, no stoplights, but best of all – no tickets. The Cadillac V-Club in partnership with The Drivers Edge will provide you with an experienced instructor to help guide you through the event, one on one, as you learn how to handle your car at the limit. You set your own goals and only go as fast as you feel comfortable going. Progress as far as you wish in your own car at your own pace, become a safer driver on the street, and have a blast along the way!

High Performance Driver Education (HPDE) refers to a track day held on a dedicated road racing track designed to teach drivers proper high speed driving in a controlled environment. 

The cost to participate will be determined by the program level you select and you will be provided with an experienced instructor, classroom sessions in between run groups, and over two hours of dedicated track time plus classroom instruction.

The Novice program ($275) is for drivers who are new to driving on a racing circuit, or only have one or two previous events. The full day program includes classroom instruction throughout the day, on-track drills to help you learn some basic skills before you drive at speed, in-car instruction, and of course several sessions at speed. This program includes an instructor in the passenger seat of your vehicle.

The Intermediate program ($225) is tailored towards drivers who have mastered the basics, and includes classroom instruction throughout the day, as well as in-car instruction.  You will be driving with an instructor.  To register for this program you must provide evidence of your track driving experience or certification.

The Advanced program ($225) includes a mix of drivers who have worked up the skill ladder and may even include drivers with competition licenses.  However, we do not allow competitive driving (racing) in this group. Aggressive, late passes, dropping two tires regularly, pouncing on a slower car’s rear bumper, blocking or being unpredictable are all unacceptable. The key attribute of the Advanced program is COOPERATIVE DRIVING. This group includes drivers who are experienced in road racing and work together for fast laps around the track. Slower cars hold their line, and sometimes will lift a bit early on corner entry to make the pass easy for the passer. To register for this program you must provide evidence of your track driving experience or certification.

In order to participate, you are required to RSVP and pay in advance of the event via the CadillacVClub.com website.  Your entry is not guaranteed until your payment is received.  A wait list will open for RSVP registration when the event is full.

Be sure to read the cancellation/refund policy.  No exceptions to this policy unless we can fill your spot by moving a member off the wait list.

This is an excellent opportunity to test your track driving skills in a safe environment behind the wheels of your Cadillac V.  Drivers Edge offers a curriculum that goes beyond that of typical performance driving schools.  The programs are designed for drivers of all experience levels and includes techniques and skills you can apply with the assistance of your in-car instructor.  Classroom sessions are brief but informative. You will leave this event with improved driving confidence in yourself and your Cadillac V-Series vehicle!
