Now that Spring has decided to show its face in Minnesota, we are looking forward to a great weekend at Brainerd International Raceway for our 2013 HPDE Driving School.
If this is your first driving event we know you may be feeling a bit nervous. But don’t worry, safety is our #1 concern and you will be paired with a seasoned instructor who will help you learn more about your car and yourself over the two day event.
For those who have driven at BIR in the past, you will be challenged this time by a track that has been re-graded and resurfaced since last year so, basically, you will be running on a track that is new to you.
Remember, IT IS NOT TOO LATE to sign up for this weekend's event, see our event page for all the details if you are interested!
