This past weekend the National Corvette Museum hosted the first of many High Performance Driving Events to be held at its recently opened Motorsports Park. The event allowed sports car owners of any driving ability to get a feel for the all-new NCM track and hone their skills.
The NCM track is made up of a 9-turn East Course and an 11-turn West Course, which can be linked together making a 21-turn, 3.15-mile Grand Course. The facility opened earlier this month and had 189 events booked for its first full year of operation as of September 9.
Participants in the HPDE event were separated into different experience-based classes (beginner, low intermediate, high intermediate, and advanced) so that faster drivers were not on the track at the same time as less experienced ones. Cadillac Racing driver Andy Pilgrim was also in attendance showing drivers how to drive the track and even test driving their vehicles.
The NCM put together a quick video recap of the inaugural HPDE event. If you’re interested in going to a track day event at the NCM Motorsports Park or somewhere else and are curious about what an event like this entails, you won’t want to miss it. Check it out just below.
