The 2014 NCM track season kicks off with a 2 day event at Sebring International Raceway.  Home of one of the premier endurance races, we take to the track for the second year at SIR and the 10th year of the Museum HPDE program.  There are many tracks where you can exercise your car and practice your skills but nothing quite matches the feeling of you experience running the same pavement as famous drivers and cars have competed.   


For the second year we continue with 3 student run groups, an Instructor group and our special feature; Touring Laps for those with convertibles and/or drivers that dont want to do the full out HPDE school. Three run full sessions have been scheduled for the Touring Laps on Monday, April 14th.  Classroom sessions are also scheduled for Touring participants to learn the flags and Line.  The Touring sessions will be run with instructor/pace cars interspersed to maintain speeds and mark the correct track line. 

We expect to have a number of VIP Drivers available, Andy Pilgrim and John Heinricy, for celebrity drives and interesting classroom discussions as well as our crew of GM engineers and designers. 

All participants are reminded that it is imperative that after registering they must download, fill out and return their Classification form (includes HPDE AND Touring) no later than February 28th, and download their Driver Package (separate packages for Touring and HPDE) for the tech sheets and key information. Classification paperwork is required to be turned in to Karen promptly after registration for correct run assignment. Those signing up for the special Touring laps should be sure to download the correct Driver package as you do not need to prepare your car the way the high speed participants do.
The 2-day HPDE is $485 for an NCM member and $525 for Non-member (includes a 1 year discounted membership). The Touring lap option is available for $120 for 1 3-session day for the driver and $25 for a passenger. Garages are available for HPDE at $15. HPDE registration closes February 28th at 8:00am ct. 

All attendees for HPDE and Touring, including instructors, students and passengers, must register for the event. Spectators/guests who are not driving or riding do not register but will have to check in at the facility for a spectator wristband.
