Recommended Posts

I thought I would do Rob a favor and seperate this topic from his NW meet and greet thread.

So if you have questions and would like to join us the day before Grabbers event please post up here.
I would like to get a head count so I can push for a group discount.

CONFIRMED!!!
If we get 5 or more for either the school or HPDE and we will all recieve a $20 discount from the regular rate.

This is also a open inventation for all TEAM SHELBY members to come hang out with us, cost zero dollars to come by to watch us drive the 2.1 course.

What time would be appropriate for spectators to come watch ?

 

 

They run 4 run groups - 20 min sessions on track per group, rotated thru the day

First group usually is on the track by 9am / lunch break from 12-1pm / event concludes by 4:30pm

In the past each run group will run twice in the AM and twice in the PM

 

Novice School

Advance School

HPDE (Team Shelby members)

Test & Tune (Race prepped cars)

Rumor has it 2 more Team Shelby members may soon be signing up.

I will talk with with Tracy about a group discount usually goes into effect once we reach 5

 

Reminder: Your card won't be charge until the day of, so if we get the car count we need we will only be charged the discounted rate the day of the event.

I was reading the HPDE Requirements and it states that you must have "One Driver Training event approved by Cascade Sports Car Club." Is this true or not? The first post indicates it is not...just want to make sure before I register. I wrote them last week and still haven't heard back.

SOrry they don't sell fuel at the track it maybe a restriction since it is owned by the CIty of Portland

 

I can get you hooked up on some 100 octane Sunoco once you get here.

It's a judgement call by CSCC, if you have track day experiance at PIR or other venues it should not be an issue (approved Events as deemed by them), make sure to have events and dates available. Many times they will send out an instructor to ride along the first session just to check out (new to them) participants.

93 octane will work fine . I was hoping to gas up close to the track but 4 sessions will go through it quick and driving up/back with a jug would be frowned upon !

Gas is close by, lunch is always a good time to refill.

I'll be bring my truck and trailer with plenty of cans available.

Just wanted to say " Thank You Kerry " for getting the group set up with Tracey and the folks at the Cascade Sports Car Club . I had Gordon Jones as an instructor for the initial outing and I was laughing because he was wearing a 2001 SCCA PCRRC shirt which had my name on the backside . The track was a blast , fun to learn , got to experience it in the dry along with a session in the rain . Just couldn't get used to some blue SGT always going by me ! :hysterical: Thanks for having Jim and I over for dinner and showing us the fleet and also for getting us a discounted price at the track . I wish that we could of spent more time together . We'll get together later with you. :shoppingcart_:

I would like to thank Kerry for suggesting this and putting it together with Cascade Sports Car Club. I had a fantastic time. It was also a great learning experience for me and I really enjoyed meeting some great new friends.
