Description Two day Driver's Education at NOLA Motorsports Park. We will be using the 2.75 mile track configuration. Open to all makes of automobile. Entrants must be at least 18 years of age. Sunday is Veterans Day and Monday is the observed holiday. In observation of the holiday there will be no charge for Veterans on Monday. 

The entry fee will be waived for instructors, up to the number of entries needed to cover the novice group. Instructor slots will be allocated on a first-to-register basis.

Please Note: At this time it is not known how “Rear Collision Avoidance” systems will react at speed in the HPDE environment. For the safety of all participants Mardi Gras & Whiskey Bay Regions have decided not to allow affected vehicles to run with our group at HPDE events unless the system can be disabled.  We have no doubt that this equipment is very helpful in street driving however, we cannot risk endangering drivers, instructors and their vehicles at our on-track driving schools.

A box lunch is included in the entry fee for each day that you are registered. We will have an assortment of box lunches for you to choose. You may pre-order additional lunches on the Event Options page.

If you need a rental helmet go to the Event Options page. 

Parade Laps – We will be doing parade laps of the 2.75 mile circuit from 12:00 to 12:30 each day. $20 per car covers both days. You will take about 5 laps behind a pace car at normal highway speeds.  Passengers are allowed. See Event Options.
