The Road America Drivers' Education “RADE” event is a driver school put on each spring by the Chicago Region Porsche Club with an emphasis on safety. Held in Elkhart Lake, WI at Road America, one of the premier racetracks in the world. This program has been developed over many years to teach you the skills you need to drive your Porsche at its limits in a safe and secure environment.

We have offered a limited number of spots to Badger BMW members. Those with previous Road America experience along with their BMW’s will be allowed to participate.

This event is held over Memorial Day weekend and you must pass technical inspection (SUV’s, Cayenne or Macans are not allowed), and to drivers age 18 and older with an emphasis on the novice driver. Starting Thursday night, May 21st with a novice driver meeting, and ending Sunday, May 24th, RADE leaves Memorial Day open to celebrate with friends and family.

Pre-registration is required for this event, as on-site registrations will not be accepted. Novice drivers, who have never been on a road course, are strongly encouraged to attend the Autocross Precision Car Control Clinic, as well as, Novice Drivers School at Blackhawk Farms Raceway.

Three Friday events plus our two-day Oktoberfest weekend.

The season begins with our Novice Day event on Friday, April 24th. This event is dedicated to the novice driver. This is the event to attend if you are new to the club. We typically have 40 or more novice drivers at this event so in addition to learning how to handle your vehicle. It is also a great way to meet fellow club members. Again this year we will be incorporating one experienced group at this Novice Day event. This group is open to all who have previous track experience but have not reached the Instructor level.

The June 26 and July 17 events are open to novice and experienced drivers. Run groups will be based on driver experience. A novice group with both on track and classroom instruction will also be provided.

The season ends with the Oktoberfest two-day weekend event. This is open to drivers with previous experience. No novice instruction will be provided. The weekend event includes dinner party Saturday and pizza at the track Sunday.
