A list of Texas HPDEs

We should have a sticky which shows all of the Southwest M3 post members their options for HPDEs. I like to run with the Driver's Edge but they aren't always on convenient weekends and are rarely before/after a holiday which would be nice. I think a consolidated list of track days would make my (and everyone else's) search easier. AND I would think it promotes high performance driving and organizations that conduct such events. Promotes competition also. So, IMO, this is a win-win. Hopefully this tread doesn't end up bankrupting our resident track junkies.

So here is what I've gathered so far for tracks, schools, and dates.

TRACKS
TWS = Texas World Speedway - College Station, TX
MSRC = Motorsport Ranch - Cresson, TX (20 min S of Ft Worth)
MSRH = Motorsport Ranch Houston - Angleton, TX (30 min S of Houston)
ECR = Eagle Canyon Raceway - Decatur, TX (N of Ft Worth)
HHR = Harris Hill Road = San Marcos, TX
GSS = Grandsport Speedway = Hitchrock, TX (SE of Houston)

ORGANIZATIONS
Texas Speed Syndicate (TSS) - http://texasspeedsyndicate.com/
TWS Performance Driving School (TWS PDS) - www.clubregistration.net
The Driver's Edge (TDE) - www.thedriversedge.net
Apex Driving Academy (ADA) - www.apexdrivingacademy.com
Houston M Club (HMC) - www.houstonmclub.com
BMWCCA - Lone Star Chapter (BLSR) - www.lscbmwcca.org
BMWCCA - Houston Chapter (BHOU) - www.houston-bmwcca.com
BMWCCA - Tejas Chapter (BTEJ) - www.tejaschapter.org
Lone Star Region PCA (LSRP) - www.lsrpca.com
Maverick Region PCA (MAVP)
NASA Texas Region (NTR)

...note...I will abbreviate BMWCCA chapters with a "B" plus 3 letters. But for Porsche, I will put the "P" behind the 3 letters to follow the rear engine theme.

CONFIRMED TRACK DATES (date/organization/track/direction & config)

For Those in North Texas.....

DFW AutoClub has quite a few people that do HPDE's regularly (Often with enough people to have their own run groups). It's a very good mixed brand (lots of BMW's) local (DFW) site with an interesting and diverse membership. Steve Fordham at Autoscope mid-cities is very knowledgeable about what events are coming up. He generally organizes the DFW AutoClub groups.

I've added the 2nd half of the The driver's edge schedule. I usually run with TDE so please just post the details of the event if I've missed any. I just want this thread to be fair and balanced.

This is great. Now I'm not so worried about my eventual move to the TX Republic.
