On-Track Lapping at Palmer Series (OT LAPS) is offered to all drivers on these dates:
OT LAPS provides 60-90 minutes on track, per group: experienced drivers or novice drivers.
For novice drivers, our coaches and staff will help guide you in classroom and track sessions.
Classroom sessions introduce the basics for driving on the race track:
» Track safety basics: safety flags, pitting procedures, point-by passing rules.
» Vehicle dynamics: Traction limits, weight transfer, friction circle physics.
» Threshold braking and initiating turns for speed and traction.
» Consistency in driving, car placement, and sighting/visual focus.
» What to do in a spin, reacting to on-track incidents at speed.
Experienced drivers can expect 3-4 track sessions and 60-90 minutes of track time.
Novice drivers may wish to review HPDE school requirements. Experienced track drivers may wish to see our lapping day requirements. For questions, please
