SCCA Performance Driving Experience - (PDX)

SCCA Performance Driving Experience - (PDX)

Postby GB24Hours » Sun Jun 26, 2011 9:51 pm

I've signed up to run in the next SCCA PDX at Sebring International Raceway on July 16,2011.

Instead of spending a whole day at an AutoCross for a total of 5 minutes of driving (which is a ton of fun, anyway), I'll get four 20-minute sessions of lapping an actual race course. Safety and helmet standards are the same as they are for an AutoCross. Passing can occur in designated passing zones on the track.

30 openings for Saturday the 16th, and 30 for Sunday the 17th.

As of this writing Sunday is full. 4 (four) spots left on Saturday.

Info: http://www.cfrscca.org/wordpress/wp-con ... y-2011.pdf

There are Club Races, a Driver School, and the PDX all on the same weekend.

I WILL go by myself, but it would be more fun with a buddy.

Nick is signed up... and someone unknown took another spot.

New $8.52 battery installed. Thanks walmart :lol: portable air compressor is dead. Inflating car tires with a bicycle pump really blows. Talk about low-budget racing ;)

The best 2 quotes of the weekend:

Nick's instructor, on his 1987 900s race-car-in-progress: "Well, you might not have the fastest car out here this weekend, but it might be the coolest."

My instructor, an about my 3rd lap of the whole day, just after traffic cleared enough for me to go full throttle down the front straight: "Wow. This thing really scoots."

Glenn was running his new Aero. I had soooo much fun out there!!!! Even with the cheapest car with the least horsepower, it was still a hoot. I highly recommend doing a PDX to everyone here. Doesn't matter what you're driving, going all-out in a safe environment is something everyone should try atleast once.
