Florida Citrus Region of the Porsche Club of America to Host CERTIFIED Level 2 HPDE Instructor School

September 4, 2018

Porsche Club of America – Florida Citrus Region Will Conduct HPDE Instructor School at Roebling Road Raceway

The Florida Citrus Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA), which was CERTIFIED by the Motorsport Safety Foundation in February, will be hosting an HPDE Instructor School next month. The event will be held on October 12, 2018 at Roebling Road Raceway near Savannah, GA. Eligible candidates wishing to achieve status as MSF Level 2 Instructors and PCA National Instructors can attend the program, which will include role-playing and classroom participation.

Established in 1974, the Florida Citrus Region of PCA has grown from 25 members to over 1,100 Porsche owners and enthusiasts living in Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Lake counties. The organization hosts a number of driving and social events led by a team of experienced drivers and instructors throughout the year. 

“Candidates can use this day to learn the art of teaching high performance driving and to converse with experienced driving instructors,” said Chief Driving Instructor Bert Del Villano. “Candidates successfully completing the course will be eligible for National PCA DE Instructor Corps Membership as well as Level 2 MSF Certification, and should instruct at the 10/13-14 DE. Only a limited number of candidates will be accepted.”

More information about this event can be found on the Florida Citrus Region of PCA website ( and on the sign-up page here.

The CERTIFIED program was established to improve the standards and operations of HPDE schools, instructor training programs and instructors in order to provide a safer and better quality experience for all involved. The Motorsport Safety Foundation believes it is important that all instructors work from the same baseline, and continue their training at an Instructor Training School (ITS) that offers a curriculum that covers, at a minimum, the standards outlined by the safety nonprofit. For more information about the CERTIFIED program, please visit

The Motorsport Safety Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving safety standards in motorsport. It is a community where the motorsport industry can come together and have a single voice, a place to share safety concerns and collaborate on research. The charity, founded in honor of late professional racecar driver Sean Edwards, continuously works to amend those issues that can prevent another driver, crew member, marshal or even fan from serious injury or death.
