August 21, 2018

Motorsport Safety Foundation Grants Level II Certification to Calabogie Motorsports Park’s HPDE Instructor Training Program

Calabogie Motorsports Park has achieved Level II certification in the Motorsport Safety Foundation’s High Performance Driver Education (HPDE) instructor training initiative, CERTIFIED. Home to the longest track in Canada, Calabogie was designed to provide a challenging, safe and charming venue for both amateur and club level high performance drivers.  

“Calabogie Motorsports Park is proud to be CERTIFIED as a Level II HPDE organization, the first of its kind in Canada, by the Motorsport Safety Foundation,” said Business Development Manager Greg van Dalen. “Calabogie Motorsports Park strives to improve the quality of High Performance Driving Education and will continue to provide the necessary training needed in our industry. For those looking to become an MSF Level II CERTIFIED instructor, please stay tuned for training dates coming soon only by Calabogie Motorsports Park.”

The CERTIFIED program was established to improve the standards and operations of HPDE schools, instructor training programs and instructors to deliver a safer and better quality experience for all involved. The nonprofit believes in the importance of all instructors working from the same baseline, and continuing their training at an Instructor Training School (ITS) that offers a curriculum that covers, at a minimum, the standards outlined by the Motorsport Safety Foundation.

Calabogie Motorsports Park has been recognized as one of the most aesthetically pleasing driving facilities in North America. The Alan Wilson-designed track offers high-speed challenges while incorporating all of the appropriate safety measures required by ASN Canada. 

The Motorsport Safety Foundation is pleased to welcome Calabogie Motorsports Park as the first Canadian HPDE organization to join the CERTIFIED program.
