Hooked On Driving
Ken Mantovani III, Florida Region Director
Hooked On Driving is focused on providing high performance driver training in the controlled environment of a race course with NO competition. High Performance Driving Experience (HPDE) is held on a closed road course, with managed passing rules. HPDE is a full-day program where most participants bring their own sports cars and are allowed to drive them on the course in conjunction with focused instruction and monitoring while being grouped by ability and experience.
Do you want to learn how to maximize the performance of your vehicle, but don't want to do it in the unsafe environment of the streets and highways? Take it to the track with The HPDE and learn with top-notch experienced instructors who will teach you how to brake, turn-in, and accelerate out of corners quickly and safely with one-on-one attention. Improving your own skills as a driver is the best modification you can do to your car, all you need is a helmet and a car that will pass our safety inspection. The car doesn't need to be a high performance car or modifed at all, it can be bone stock! Our students have brought everything from stock Honda Civics to highly modified vehicles, as well as supercars such as Ferraris and Corvettes. Students are grouped according to skill level, so you can learn at your own pace and advance when your skills meet the criteria of the next group and when you feel comfortable doing so. Track Days, driver coaching, data acquisition/analysis, trackside support, and vehicle rentals are available. Go to www.TheHPDE.com to learn more!

Florida Track Days
Tony West - Operator/Founder
Florida Trackdays was created to give motorcycle riders a place a ride their bike in a fashion in which they were designed to do. We provide a safe controlled environment at world Class facilities such as Homestead Miami Speedway and Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR) with instructors who are current or former racers with years of track experience. We do this thru classroom inst ruction and riding groups catered to individual rider ability.
With increasing development in Florida and the traffic that accompanies it, motorcyclists are facing a growing riskwhen taking their bikes on the street . My goal is to give motorcycle riders a place to take their street and race bikes with minimal modifications and have a great time on the tra ck. Our t rack days are open to riders of all skills levels. We provide FREE instruction on and off the track with our classroom setting. Our track days are structured upon rider ability. We do this by breaking up into groups: Novice, Intermediate and Advanced. We purposely keep the number of riders in each group low in order to keep the track day experiences as fun as possible. Please refer to our Track Day Forum or please contact Tony directly with any questions you may have.
