If this is your first HPDE, welcome to PDS! Here are some tips to make your first time enjoyable and hassle-free.
Show up early - Gates usually open between 6a and 7a, and in many cases there is an "early drop off" period the night before the event. There will be a lot going on the morning of the event so don't show up fashionably late. You'll miss something.

Make sure the car is ready:
Bring the right stuff:
Dress the part
Prep the Driver:
Spectators are welcome at PDS events. During the lunch break, we offer parade laps for all who are interested. Parade laps allow everyone the opportunity to drive the road course configuration being used that weekend. They are driven at normal street speeds with seat belts on, but no helmets are required. An advanced driver or instructor leads the group around the course for five laps. No passing, racing or "slingshotting" is allowed during parade laps.
