We look forward to our events with you – and please know we will focus on safety in the COVID-19 era so the events will look a bit different, but the tracks won’t!!  Click HERE to see the HOD event guidelines in the Covid-19 era to assure the safety of all participants. Note that Thunderhill rules may override the HOD guidelines. 

The HOD Beginner Boot Camp is a special, one-day, intensive performance driving skills training program, intended to bring new performance drivers up to speed at a faster pace than the standard HOD track program.

Boot Camp includes:

  • Small group environment – personalized approach
  • Over 2 hours in-car
  • Specialized classroom content, extensive on-track coaching on the tricky and fun 2 mile West Thunderhill track
  • Car control clinic on the Thunderhill LARGE skid pad
  • Direct feedback on student progress
  • Diploma issued to successful participants, signifying “Solo approved” status with HOD

Who should sign up for the Boot Camp?

First timers on track will get a head start by doing this day. Drivers who have done the A-Novice program and would like more practice, review and repetition before they move up the ladder will also benefit. Those from Beginner programs with other groups and have yet to be confident about progressing are also welcome!
