The Parktown Imports Carrera Classic is the St. Louis PCA's High Performance Driver's Education program (PCA HPDE). This school offers the perfect environment for car lovers
18 years of age and older to learn more about performance driving. Our driving school is structured by the Porsche Club of America's Driver's Education Program and is a school that pairs experienced
instructors with students of all levels to help them safely
learn vehicle dynamics and high performance driving skills in a safe,
controlled setting. If you have always wanted to learn more about driving technique, joining a DE event is the safest, single best way to learn. While the event is held at a race track, it is NOT a racing school. You will not be taught to race. You will learn about vehicle dynamics and high performance driving that will
carry over to street driving and make you much more aware and capable
in an emergency situation on the street.
To attend a PCA DE, you don’t need to own a Porsche.
The schools are designed to teach you to drive YOUR car better, regardless of who manufactured it. You will see many non-Porsche cars at a PCA driving school.
The St. Louis PCA has a long partnership with Gateway Motorsports Park. GMP is located just a couple of miles from downtown St. Louis and is a world-class racing facility that hosts events from NASCAR, NHRA, IndyCar, SCCA, NASA, BMWCCA, and ACNA to name a few.
Note to all visitors: You must
have the minor waiver form complete if you plan to visit Gateway
International with a person less than 18 years of age. The minor will not be allowed to enter the track without a signature from the parents or guardians. This form can be downloaded on the right side of this page.
