High Speed Touring

High-Speed Touring Series (High Performance Driver Education):

High Speed Touring @ Hallett (HST) is your chance to drive your car on a real road race course.

So you've got a really neat performance car - vintage, modern, exotic or one of the many sporty performance tuner coupes and sedans that are in vogue. And maybe you frequently experience frustrations because you can never really open-up your car to the spirited driving for which you think you and your car are capable. Fear of traffic citations, your reputation, your wife/parents, etc. keep your urge to drive at speed in check. Are you really wanting to be an on-track driver and not just a spectator, but maybe not quite ready for wheel-to-wheel racing? Then the HST series is for YOU! It's great fun for all motor heads AND you can afford it...read on...

HST lets YOU, at modest cost, get lots of seat-time by lapping, AT SPEED, in performance-oriented STREET CARS! It's easy to qualify you and your car for HST lapping at the Hallett Circuit. Here's the deal: You must become a member of Hallett High Speed Touring Club ($50 once a year). ANY street-legal car (excluding SUVs, trucks, wagons, vans except by specific permission) can be used WITHOUT normal race prep...no roll cage, no driving suit, no prior competition driving experience are required for this non-race series. Convertibles must have  factory roll bar protection to participate.

If it is your first time to drive on the Hallett track in this DIRECTION (CW or CCW) in the HPDE series, you are REQUIRED to sign up at least a week in advance and prepare for the Driver Education class ($50 fee). We send you an interactive high performance driving guide via drop box or by us mail to study and prepare.

  • Arrive at 7:00 am and sign waivers @ admission gate
  • Report to 2nd floor classroom by 7:15 am for OPTIONAL ariel training video to learn Hallett corner-by-corner.
  • Check-in on 1st floor of tower, bring your completed tech sheet with your helmet for inspection.

You must have factory seat belts, wear a 2015 or newer Snell-approved safety helmet (rentals are available) and you must wear a long-sleeved shirt and long pants and closed-toe shoes while you drive on track for YOUR safety.  Driver must have a car # on both driver & passenger side front doors at least 8" tall (we recommend blue painter tape).  You'll receive FIVE 15-minute on-track sessions for around $175 per event day (a super bargain for any major road racing course).
