High Performance Driving School A.K.A High Performance Driver’s Education (HPDE)
The 2014 “Flat Out” Classic features many events throughout the weekend, and includes a 2-day high performance driving school. BMW club chapters have been hosting these schools for over 20 years and have considerable experience in how to run a safe, fun, and educational school. This is your chance to take your car on a real road course, with qualified instructors, professional corner workers and safety personnel. You will receive 2 full days of classroom and on-track instruction in your car. Ever watched a road race and wondered what everyone meant by the terms apex, early entry, trail braking – well, here’s your chance to learn what all those mean! Advanced solo students have Friday available as well.
Heartland Park in Topeka is the home for the school – as well as all the other events
During the school weekend, we will have all types of vehicles – you do not need a “race car” for this school – as this is not a “race” school. BMW’s, Mercedes, Ford, Honda, Porsche – you will see nearly all makes at this event. Any street vehicle (other than high center-of-gravity vehicles and convertibles) can participate. Your vehicle only needs to be in safe operating condition.
