How much $$ is it??
It is $225 for the Saturday PDX.How much $$ is it??
The Club Trial format is one car at a time during the competition portion, it is not W2W racing. During the practice sessions, there are other cars on track but the usual PDX passing zone rules apply. The PDX has many cars on the track at a time, but it is an "educational event" and not a competition, so passing is permitted only in designated passing zones with a point bye. Both are super fun, but I really love time trials. It's like qualifying for a race: you have a few laps to let it all hang out and get your best time in. Fastest lap wins.The site says it is one car on the track at a time. Is that how it works for the PDX as well as the time trial?
I self tech my car and fill out the provided tech sheet before the event and then they check a few simple things in the pre-grid like helmets and brake lights. Normal 3pt belts are fine, but like you I use 4pt w/ASM. These rules apply for both the PDX and the Club Trial. Basically any car will be eligible, and if you are doing the Sunday Club Trial with your car I can tell you that you are in the A Street Modified class (the base class in SCCA for an Exige S). As my car stands right now it is in Super Stock (the base class for an Elise), but maybe not for long.Tech Insp/Requirements for entrance, or done on-site/at gate? Approved Helmet, and min of 4pt ASM's or 5/6pt harnesses, or is this a "street" event - all comers/all classes?
I may go down to Barber for the NASA event that weekend, do some of the LOG events and then the Lotus Track day on Monday. This assumes that my shop is still willing to trailer the car down... its a long way to Birmingham. Hope to see some locals there too!Ok. It would be nice to plan some events as a group. Anyone doing track day at LOG ?
I am. My son will share the car also.
I think this is a good event for a track novice because the SCCA doesn't screw around when it comes to your safety. If you've done SCCA autocrosses before, you know that they are very good about initiating novices. Instructors are also good, passing rules are enforced, tech is taken seriously, etc. Honestly I think you should just go for it and get some seat time before the Lotus Driving School so that you can utilize that time to figure out how to fine tune your approach to this particular car. (BTW, I love Spring Mountain... but I did it in a Radical )I did a little digging around for this and was wondering if this is a good event for the non track people like myself? I see the green class all has instructors but I didn't see anything about what the "classroom" teaches. I'm considering the Lotus Driving School later this year because it covers a myriad of things over 2 days (skidpad, heel toe, lifting, etc) to give you an example.
I am an avid Autocrosser but never tracked so basically going out of second gear is new to me
And I also assume that a stock Elise (no rollcage, exstinguisher, hans, harness, etc) is ok based off your response to Scrumpot. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm nearly certain this SCCA region always has free loaner helmets available for use - they always have a dozen or so at all the autocrossees anyway - but I'll ask the event steward and get back to you.Scott,
A friend wants to attend as well but doesn't have his own helmet. Does he need one or are there any available there for rent/communal use?
2nd question: Do jeans apply as cotton?
