Learn how to get the most out of yourself and your Mini

I recently again had the opportunity to spend a day with a Mini on a racetrack.  But this was not just another race but rather a ‘test’ day.  We needed an opportunity to do some tire testing when we found this “HPDE” event.  While we have actually sponsored one or two of these in the past, this was the first time I took the time to also serve as an coach/instructor.  All I can say is that this organization really has it’s act together and I would recommend that EVERY Mini owner should make the effort to attend one of them.  Absolutely stock street cars are the most common and probably the best place to start in fact.  (The slower you go, the more you learn).

Below find only part of the great information that can be found on the “Hooked on Driving” Website.
Hooked On Driving is a leading national performance driving program, commonly known as an HPDE, or HPDS (high performance driving experience, high performance driving school).
