Florida Track Day


Getting familiar with the group...

Been working for the last 3.5 months or so on organizing a Track Day with Performance Driving Group (http://performancedrivinggroup.com/)

We have chosen March 30th, 2014 at Homestead Miami Speedway… The regular price for the event is $299, but I have been able to get a group discount base on the amount of drivers we get.

Minimum 5 drives: $25 off
5 - 10 drives: $35 off
10-15 drivers: $40 off
15 + drivers $45 off

PDG also provides coffee and donuts or bagels in the morning, catered lunch, use of our full motion simulator, no charge for an instructor (see web page for 1st timer information) , no charge to instructors, no membership fees and more. This event is NOT strictly for Gen Coupe, so it you have a buddy with a xyz car he/she will be able to join in the fun. The more the merrier and the more money stays in our pockets.
