At a minimum, you must have a helmet (SA-2015 or newer). It’s also helpful if you have some hard-soled shoes and some racing gloves.

AutoX Questions

Absolutely, CVR AutoX-University is the best way to teach them driving skills and how to safely drive. See the required Waivers on the AutoX page.

No. We encourage you to not make any changes. Enjoy just how amazing your Porsche is straight from the factory. Just be sure your car is properly maintained, your tires are properly inflated to factory specs, and remove all loose objects you may have placed in your car before your run.

Yes. Our “Other” car class is just for that purpose. AutoX is a great way to enjoy how your sporty car will handle close to its limits.

No. Rain is fantastic for refining driving skills. Please bring an umbrella and dress appropriately. We will pause the event if severe weather or lightning is threatening.

Driver's Education Questions

We accept all Porsches at our CVR DE events except for Macans and Cayennes

Yes. Driver Education events are for 18+

Register for an event on and click on the payment link to go to PayPal.

Only registered participants are allowed in cars on track. If there are 2 people in a car, one must be an approved CVR instructor.

No. You drive your Porsche on the street when it rains, you can drive your Porsche on the track when it rains. Rain gives you the opportunity to refine your driving skills.

All CVR De events have separate rungroups: Beginner (with instructors), Solo, Advanced, and Instructor. All beginners have an instructor with them for all on-track sessions

Gates open at 7 a.m. at Lime Rock Park, registration goes until 8 a.m., the driver’s meeting is from 8:15-8:40. First cars on track at 9 am. The event ends at 5 pm.

Event costs vary based on the season and the day (weekends are more expensive than weekdays). All pricing is on

Yes – all helmets must be Snell SA-2015 or newer. We have a limited quantity of rental helmets for each event

Lime Rock Park has a snack bar, with food for purchase.

You do not need a trailer. You can drive to Lime Rock in the Porsche you will be driving on track.

Generally, your auto insurance policy does not cover your car on the track. It is up to you if you want to get track coverage from one of the many companies that cover track coverage.

Contact the CVR DE registrar once you are registered and confirmed for an event if you have not received an email regarding your car number. You will be assigned a 3-digit number or you can request to see if a 3-digit special number (birthday, anniversary, etc) is available.

Fuel is available for purchase but it is more expensive than the local gas station. Fill-up before you get to the track.

Prior to the Drivers Ed, your Porsche must be checked by a CVR inspector. This should be done between two and four weeks – but never more than four weeks – prior to every Drivers Ed event in which you’ll drive the car. This avoids unnecessary delays and disappointments by ensuring that your car meets the basic safety requirements – e.g., mechanical operation, tread wear, etc. – before you get to the track. Print out a 2023 tech form from the DE tab and bring it to your inspection. You’ll receive a completed and stamped Tech Sheet that must be brought to the track.

Long Pants and shirt (no synthetic material), rubber-soled shoes (no open shoes), and SA-2015 or newer helmet.

Rally Questions

No prior experience necessary. Everything you need to know will be provided to you when you register for the event. Many first time Rallyists do quite well on their first runs.

While we do have overall winners for each event, we have a separate Rookie class reserved for first-timers with its own award. In most events, roughly 1/3 to 1/2 of participants are newer or first-time participants.

Generally, Rallys include 3 hours for the event and 1 additional hour for awards over lunch. The distance driven varies by event but is usually around 50 miles.

At a minimum, you must have a driver and a navigator. It would be too dangerous to do both roles. Besides, the event is much more fun when completed with a friend, colleague or family member.

No. You can switch up driver and navigator with different people but eligibility for the Rallyists of the Year award requires the same driver/navigator team (regardless of who does what).

Absolutely. We encourage people to bring the whole family. The more participants in the car the more chances of success.

No. Rallys run rain or shine because the event takes lots of planning. The rain doesn’t take away from the experience though and we usually have good-sized groups even with the rain.

We understand members might not want to drive certain cars in the rain. If it does end up raining, we allow participants to switch cars with notice.
