Testimonials

I cannot recommend SCDA highly enough

I’ve now participated in four HPDE events with SCDA this season and one last season. All have been fantastic. Instruction is top notch and everyone I’ve met (participants and staff) has been courteous, friendly, helpful and generally enthusiastic. Safety standards are excellent and their approach is helpful and encouraging with 100% focus on skills development and improvement. I can not recommend SCDA highly enough.

Don’t even hesitate, sign up for your first SCDA EVENT today.

As a Porsche Club member, I was hesitant to try DE with another car club. I’ve now done three events with SCDA. This car club is truly professional. DE is about having fun while learning the limits of your car. SCDA does everything to make you feel welcome. Starting with coffee, donuts, and other treats registration and the drivers meeting is simple and easy. Tech inspection is painless. Instructors are great and the culture is second to none. From Ferrari’s to Spec Miatas and everything in between, every driver is welcome. SCDA is very service oriented they do not expect you to volunteer or help out. They value your time and money and want you to enjoy the event without any hassles. Track sessions are much longer than many other car clubs, what a great value! They have a great schedule and visit some really great tracks. Don’t even hesitate, sign up for your first SCDA EVENT today.
