At PRE we have a group of carefully selected individuals who make up our track day staff. We are laser focused on helping PRE customers get the most out of their track day experience. Collectively we have over 200 years of track day and racing experience, and we are ready and eager to share that combined knowledge with our customers. You can view our staff bio page here.
One of our goals is to build camaraderie in the paddock so that our riders know each other. We believe that knowing your fellow riders off the track leads to a safer event on the track. With that in mind we regularly host cook-outs for all our participants called meet-and-greets. Our hope is that this adds to the fun experience of being at the track, and facilitates getting to know other like-minded riders.
