Driver Education at Wild Horse Pass East Track

by Paul Koreneff

It’s time for a track event, with the Arizona Porsche Club!

Come meet us at Wild Horse Pass East Track for a day of fun with fellow Roadrunner Chapter members and give your BMW some proper exercise!

If you haven’t experienced a track day before, you are really missing out! This is a safe, controlled, environment where you can learn how properly drive your BMW at high speeds. Some of the things that we will be teaching include car control, when to brake, turn, etc and how to handle the grin that comes from driving your BMW the way it was meant to be driven!

If this is your first visit to the track, then please sign-up for DE 1. Personal instructors are automatically assigned for DE 1 participants. DE 2 and DE 3 drivers can request one.

You must sign up for this event on the PCA’s page on MotorsportReg.com (use the green button below) and also please register with us at the top of this page so we can ensure a spot will be reserved for you.

NOTE: If you have, or are considering owning, your own helmet then please be aware that Snell 2010 helmets are no longer able to be used for these events. You must replace it with a Snell 2015 or Snell 2020 helmet. If you are considering purchasing a helmet, then we recommend going straight to a Snell 2020 since they are legal for an additional 5 years past the Snell 2015  and there is not much of a price difference. The Porsche club also has a few loaner helmets available on a first-come first-served basis, at the track.

Bring folding chairs, drinks (especially water!), sun block, and a hat. Family is welcome and there are usually plenty of people to socialize with. Be prepared for big fun!
