Club Racers REGISTER HERE

HPDE REGISTER HERE

Join us for a great weekend of competitive racing in beautiful Colorado on a challenging 2.55-mile track with rolling terrain that provides over 70 feet of elevation change!

Welcome to RMR’s combined Club Race and HPDE. Club racing is one of PCA’s premier driving events with 26 Club Races held this year and spanning coast to coast. The very first PCA Club Race was hosted by the Rocky Mountain Region in 1992 at Second Creek racetrack. Members of the Rocky Mountain Region take pride in this historic event. The Region has run the race at Second Creek, at Pueblo Motorsports Park and now at High Plains Raceway.

NOTE: The HPDE event is in conjunction with the National Club Race being held the same weekend.  Only experienced drivers are allowed to participate. To qualify for the 2022 Rocky Mountain Thunder HPDE you need to have:

  • If local to RMR,
    • You have driven in at least two RMR/AMR HPDE events in the last two seasons
    • You have driven in at least one event at High Plains Raceway
  • If an out-of-town DE participant
    • You are an HPDE instructor or an intermediate-advanced driver having driven solo for at least 4 days on at least 2 different tracks
    • You can provide a track driving history and/or reference contacts with your local club’s chief driving instructor

Shared-driver cars will be allowed provided that one driver has previously run in the Expanded Passing run groups (check with the HPDE Chief Driving Instructor for permission).

We will have two HPDE run groups. The “Red” run group, for instructors and expert level drivers, will utilize PCA’s “expanded passing” protocol where passing is allowed most anywhere on track with a point-by.  The “Blue” run group, for advanced and intermediate level drivers, will utilize conventional passing only on the longer straights with a point-by.

DE drivers are also invited to participate in the HPR open-lapping day on Friday.
