This was my first event and first track day. I talked with my instructor today he said for me to sign up for hpde 1 and ask for a check ride later on the first day. Thanks for the help!
I may sign off a student for HPDE2 for the next event at the same track.
If another instructor has signed off for another track and you are at a new track, I may indicate OK for HPDE2 next event. I always tell my students - GET AS MUCH INSTRUCTION AS YOU CAN!
Example Road Atl is not hard on brakes and tires, CMP is. Roebling is a nice weekend drive comparitavely.
Barber is a completely different animal, Charlotte is pack you big brass ones, etc.
I would follow your instructors advice, sign up for HPDE1 at a different track and let the chips fall where they may.
Why are students so anxious to get the instructor out of the car??????
