Itinerary

Personalized Itinerary

Ride-Alongs are available on a first come, first serve basis during most days that we are on track for general driving classes. Reservations are not required or accepted at most tracks. 

This fee is in lieu of a "crash clause" requiring each participant to commit a certain amount that will be forfeited in the event of an incident/crash. RPDE provides that each driver who pays the $39 Driver Release Fee will not be responsible for most damage to the car resulting from an incident/crash at the track. Only in the event that a driver intentionally or negligently fails to follow instructions which leads to an incident/crash will RPDE seek financial recompense for resulting damage to the vehicle.
