5 sessions for 3 Run Groups

The Holy Grail of Tracks. United States Best F1 Track, 3.4 miles of f1 history, with 20 turns, off & on camber, long straights. 133 feet of elevation change. F1 garages all to ourselves.

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.

It is not mandatory that you drive your Cadillac V-Series vehicle on the track in order to participate. If you own a purpose-built track car or a Corvette, Camaro or some other "track ready" vehicle, you are welcome to register and drive that vehicle.
