What can I drive on track?
Members can drive any vehicle as long as it passes a safety inspection. Dedicated track cars are not required. Most members will be driving street cars such as Porsche, BMW, Ferrari, Lotus, Mazda, and many others. Open top cars must have suitable roll bars. Club vehicles are available to rent per day for those that do not have their own car yet.
How is a member day structured?
Track access on member days will vary based on the number and experience level of the members attending. The track may be open track on some days and broken into 2-3 sessions based on driver skill level for safety. On occasion, there may be an open lapping day or driving school operating opposite member sessions.
What happens if it rains?
Track days usually run rain or shine, however there are many days available each month for members so if you do not want to run in the rain, you won’t feel pressured to do so like you would in an HPDE event.
Why join as a member?
Membership allows for more open access and flexibility that an HPDE or typical track day. As a member you have access to more days at Palmer than any single car club. On member days, track time is practically unlimited in either an open track format or with 2-3 rotating sessions. A typical car club day is broken up into 4 x 20-25 minute sessions many times, with full run groups that can make it almost impossible to get a clean lap.
Amenities such as garage access, preferred parking, future clubhouse and bathrooms will make the experience at the track more pleasant and relaxing.

What is HPDE?
Known as High Performance Driving Education/Events. These events are held by a variety of car clubs where participants include both students and instructors. Students are grouped according to their ability and experience, novice, intermediate, advanced and instructor. Track time is usually split between these into 3 or 4 20-25 minute sessions that each driver level is limited to. Classroom instruction fill some of the down time between sessions.
HPDE events are not racing. Cars on-track must follow strict rules set by each club which minimize the likelihood of on track incidents. Passing is usually only allowed within designated “passing zones”, and then only with clear hand signals and instructor confirmation.
A very popular and inexpensive way to start track driving but your track time is limited and many times crowded.
