This is the 41st year for the Buckeye Chapter High Performance Driving Event!

We strongly encourage you to give one a try if you haven’t yet.  You’ll be amazed at how much you learn, and how much fun you’ll have doing it!

Join us at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on August 21st & 22nd for the 41st Buckeye Chapter BMW CCA High Performance Driving Event!  Mid-Ohio is an excellent venue with a fantastic track and has updated its policies and procedures to comply with state and local COVID-19 guidelines.

High Performance Driver’s Events (HPDE) teach performance driving techniques, coached by experienced instructors under the safest conditions possible. This event is not a race but rather a controlled environment in which you can push the envelope at your own pace. You will learn how your car handles at high speeds and under extreme cornering conditions. After your experience at our HPDE you will be much better prepared for those “intense moments” often experienced in regular driving. Students are grouped into several categories, depending on skills and previous school experience, for both in-class and on-track sessions. This is a great investment for any driver, male or female, young or experienced. We’ve yet to hear of anyone leaving a Driver’s Schools without feeling they were a better driver!
