Track Summary


Reviews of the track have called it one of the great road racing circuits in the U.S.

The HPR Web Site is: www.HighPlainsRaceway.com

Track Location: The track is about 60 miles east of the Denver metro area, 45 miles on I-70 and then 17 miles on Hwy #36. Image:Mapquest-map.gif‎

HPR first opened for the 2009 season. The track has been a great success. It is home for all the Front Range amateur racing organizations. Uniquely it was built and owned by those same clubs, namely SCCA, Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing (RMVR), Porsche Club of America (PCA), Motorcycle Racing Association (MRA) and a fifth entity which covers a number of other racing clubs.

While most weekends are booked by the various various clubs who built and own the track (spectators welcome), HPR is also available to anyone for Lapping Days. Also, during the week the track can be rented exclusively for private use. See the Events Page for available dates. Lapping Days can be reserved and paid for online.

This is a link to a page on their website which described the track in detail. However, the YourTube aerial video below was recently discovered. Sorry, we can't give credit to who took the video since we couldn't make contact with them via YouTube. But it's a great aerial overview of the circuit.
