Track Day LOL Fall PDX 2017
October 8, 2017
PDX (Performance Driving Experience)
Presented by Land O’ Lakes Region, SCCA
Saturday, October 8th at Dakota County Technical College
This is your opportunity to discover the joys of Performance Driving!
A PDX event provides the unique opportunity to bring your car on a real track.
Do you want to improve your driving skills? Come for instruction from trained instructors, who happen to be race car drivers themselves.
And if you just like cars, go ahead and register. We’ll get you started as a volunteer. One BIG benefit is you can take your car on track in the afternoon session, and even have an instructor ride along (no cost!) So scroll down and click continue to register as a volunteer. And if you want to drive, read on and also continue.
Fee: SCCA members: $150; Non-members are $165 (including weekend membership)
You get a full day on the track, classroom and instructor ride-along (advanced drivers can request this but it’s not required)
Do you want to learn how to better control your car at a higher rate of speed than is legal on public roads? Here’s your opportunity to go fast and not worry about getting a ticket in a safe environment. Plus you WILL become a better driver!
All you need to participate in a PDX event is a registered streetcar, valid drivers license, and a helmet (and we have loaners if you need one).
First and foremost, a PDX event is about you driving your car. Our primary focus is the safety of you and your car. Getting you as much seat time as possible with instruction is our next goal, that way you can become more comfortable behind the wheel of your car at speed.
Should I do anything before I arrive at a Track Day (PDX)?
Car and Driver magazine has recently published an excellent guide to preparing for a track day: How To: Go to a Track Day – Feature
If you are not sure your car is ready for the use it will see on a racetrack, we suggest you take your vehicle to a technician who is skilled enough to evaluate your vehicle for track use. You should also plan to bring appropriate “Gear” to the PDX event. Items like extra oil, coolant, tire pressure gauge, sunscreen, umbrella, hat, camera, storage bin or bag, lawn chair, etc.
