Master the Art of Speed Safely at Your Own Pace

H2R offers a combination of personalized classroom and in-car instructions to learn how to get the most out of your sports car safely.

Intro to Performance Driving ($250 / driver)

If you have ever wanted to learn how to improve your driving skills and get the most out of your car, then you have found the right place. Here at Harris Hill Road, we offer two hour school to students of all track driving experience levels who want to learn more about how to drive on a race track. These are also a great introduction to the track for anyone interested in membership.

Each two hour session will be personalized to help you meet your specific goals. If you have never driven on a track before, we will begin in the classroom where we will discuss the theory and concepts behind how driving on the track differs from driving on the street. You will learn how to efficiently manage your tires' traction, as well as the skills that will get your speed up on the track quickly.

Following the classroom session we will start to put your newfound knowledge to the test on the track with lead-follows and then put an instructor in your right seat. This is when you will begin to discover just how amazing your car can be.

Once it's all starting to come together, we will head back to the classroom to discuss any questions that you might have and work on some finer points. From there we head back out on track.

The beauty of this program is that it is the safest and quickest way to learn how to drive your car on a track. Unlike other places where you may be grouped in with others, our instruction will be tailored to you, and you won't have to spend a whole weekend out of town at a track. The track is also an infinitely safer place to discover your car's abilities and practice your skills than the street, because it is a controlled environment. Your instructor will work hard to make sure that you and your car leave safe, happy, and ready to come back. You will find that by driving your car on the track you will gain an entirely new appreciation for what it can do and that your driving skills, even on the street, will improve dramatically.

If you would like to come in a group, we can easily accommodate you. Give us a call or send us an email and we can work with you to come up with the perfect experience.

About our Chief Driving Instructor

With over a decade of on track driving experience our Chief Driving Instructor, Courtney Rivers, is extremely knowledgeable about the intricacies of high speed driving. She began instructing in 2006 with the Porsche Club of America and since 2013 has been a part of their Instructor Training Program. Hundreds of students later, she joined our team in 2014.

While there are plenty of people who are good at driving fast on a racetrack, there are far fewer who excel at sharing their knowledge with others. Whatever your goals, Courtney will help you reach them and make sure that you have a blast doing it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a helmet?

No. We have plenty of helmets in all sizes available for you to use. If you already have one that is SA2005 or SA2010, then feel free to bring it.

What if it's cold or raining?

If the weather is looking bad, it is up to you whether you'd like to come out or reschedule. Unless there is a chance of ice on the track surface, we will still hold the school. Rain can actually be a great learning aid, because it means that the limits of traction are at a much slower pace. If you do decide to reschedule because of weather, please call us as soon as you can to let us know.

Do you rent cars?

No. If you are interested in renting a car to drive on the track contact the Longhorn Racing Academy and they may be able to help you.

How do I prepare my car?

To make sure that you and your car have the best experience, make sure that your tires are in good condition and are filled to the proper inflation levels. Check the door jam for your car's recommended levels. Also make sure to torque your lug nuts to make sure that your wheels are secure. It's also a good idea to clean out anything that could move around on track. Empty out your trunk and passenger area. If your car hasn't been serviced in a while, it's also a good idea to check your oil level and make sure that you're at a good level.

Is it safe?

Just like any time you get in your car there are risks involved, but we can tell you that this is the safest way for you to learn more about your car and practice driving skills that would otherwise be very dangerous on the street. Our instructors are highly trained and will do their best to make sure that you stay safe. Our track features plenty of run off space, so if for some reason you were to go off track there are no barriers or tire walls to run in to, just lots of open pasture.

What cars do you allow?

We allow all cars as long as they are in good condition and have appropriate safety devices. Trucks and SUVs are not allowed. If you have a question about your car, please contact us.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable clothing and most importantly good shoes. Ideal driving shoes have thin, rubber soles and are slim-fitting around your foot. Converse All-Stars are a great example of a good driving shoe. Cowboy boots, hiking boots, and flip-flops are all examples of bad driving shoes. The more feel you have of the pedals the better.

What days are schools offered?

You can schedule your school any time except for Mondays, our motorcycle day, and on Wednesday afternoon when we close the track for maintenance. Occasionally we have races and other events scheduled which can be found on our calendar. We won't be able to schedule a school during one of these events.

Best days to come out?

Weekdays usually have less traffic than weekends, but even on our busiest weekend there will be plenty of room on track for you.

Can I bring a friend or family?

Absolutely! We pride ourselves on creating a warm and welcoming community environment and we love when people bring their friends. They'll be more than welcome to sit through the classroom portions of the school, and will be able to relax in the clubhouse while you are on track.

Is an air tank available?

Yes.

What is your cancellation policy?

Please let us know as soon as possible if you will need to cancel, and we will be happy to reschedule.
