DRIVERS: please review the pre-event information linked here.

Friday August 31st is a warm-up to the exciting weekend of CARFEST 2018!  Friday is an HPDE-only day, with CARFEST kicking off afterwards.  To learn more about CARFEST, visit this link!

NOTE: No first-time novice or Acclimation Program on this day. Experienced drivers only!

"Is my run group sold out?"  How to check: on the registration form select your desired options from "Days Driving", "Driver Class" and "Vehicle Number Decal", and the remaining spots available will display above the "Add to Cart" button.

If your run group is sold out, it is not acceptable to sign up in a different run group just because yours is full.  DO NOT sign up in a different run group unless you have been approved by an AutoInterests instructor to do so!  Driving at your skill level in the appropriate run group keeps our events safe and fun for all drivers.

JUST ANNOUNCED: We will be including one FREE CARFEST general admission ticket for each driver registered for the Friday HPDE!  This means you can stick around and take advantage of all that CARFEST has to offer for the weekend!  The free ticket will be provided in your driver packet on Friday.

General Information:

This event is a high performance driving experience (HPDE) and driver's education event.
