HPDE generally requires completion of one of our previous events at Pitt Meadows (Car Control, Winter Skills, Dancing With Cones) or a previous HPDE day with the BMW CCBC. Note experience 

Advanced group requires previous participation in two or more HPDE Days or alternate verifiable course.

For the purposes of our HPDE course, we classify drivers according to past experience with our club, or another recognized group, such as PCA or PDC.  We define a novice as a person who has not completed a HPDE day with the BMW CCBC or another group that we recognize and can verify.

If we cannot verify your previous experience, we will classify you as a novice for your first HPDE day with the BMW CCBC until an instructor can sign you off for a higher level.

Run Groups

Group C - Group C is our novice run group. Drivers in this group learn the techniques and fundimentals required to drive a race track safely and effectively at speed. This group will do lead follow throughout the day. 

Group B - Group B is our intermediate run group. Drivers in this group have enough experience to run solo on track and pass in designated passing zones. 

Group A - Group A is our advanced group. If track conditions allow, this group may have more designated passing zones than Group B. 

Note: On occasion drivers and cars may be moved between run groups. Our events attract a wide variety of vehicles and experience which can result in a difference in speed between vehicles. We aim to keep our events safe and enjoyable for all of our participants which may result in adjustments to run groups. Any adjustment to run groups will not affect the amount of time a participant has on track.
