Welcome to the world of Short Course Drivers Education
Welcome to SCDE or, Short Course Driving Education, your first step towards fun, safe, successful HPDE driving.
Short Course Drivers Education (SCDE) is just what it says, it is an HPDE on a short, usually temporary course.
Course length and speeds are scaled-down in comparison to HPDE and runoff is usually plentiful and when it is not, the barriers are forgiving. Think interstate speeds, not triple digits.
Instead of concrete walls, we have simply paint, cones or soft barriers to define “out of bounds”.
The size and speeds are similar to autocross but it is a painted road course that only uses cones for information, not track directions.
In SCDE drivers run timed sessions of flying laps and point-by overtaking is allowed.
Another big difference from autocross is you are scheduled for a total of 40 minutes of track time per half-day session instead of 4 to 6 minutes stretched out over a whole day. If you are an iron man, (or woman) you can do an all-day entry and get 1 hour and 20 minutes of track time.
There are no long, hot, mandated work sessions.
You also receive instruction on HPDE procedures and etiquette along with performance driving instruction that helps you become a better, faster driver that is well on your way to being prepared for a track day at a permanent racecourse.
Oh yes, and at most venues, it is around $125 with full-day and early-bird discounts available. Far less than a full HPDE but only a little more than an Autocross.
