PCA Diablo Region track event at the NEW 5 MILE Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA
FRIDAY September 26, 2014.
"More room on track, more track time"
"safe, fast, fun"
W e are running the new 5 mile circuit and with each group limited to a maximum of 30 cars you will get more track space than you can imagine. Plus, we are limiting the number of run groups to 3 which means you get more on track time with up to 5 run sessions per group.
The event is open to drivers with no track experience ranging up to advanced level. We have three run groups allocated by experience of track driving and, of Thunderhill. Passing will be with mandatory point-by in all groups. Instructors will be allocated to all 'first time' drivers to the track.
We take safety very seriously, and will 'black flag' any participant who disregards passing protocols or consistently fails to give point by's, including denying access to the track with no refund of registration fees if deemed necessary by the safety officer. (Fortunately, in 6 years we have hardly ever had this happen because, as a limited sized group, we have a chance get to know each other and conga lines rarely happen!).
We are a Porsche club, not a driving school or a driving business, we run several safe, fun and friendly track events each year. We do not race, time trial or time laps. We limit participation at our events so that we can offer plenty of room on track and lots of track time. The registration fee includes a full buffet lunch in the Clubhouse and bottled water throughout the day.
All drivers must certify that their car has passed a safety inspection within 30 days of this event per PCA guidelines the safety inspection form can be downloaded at http://diablo-de.org. All drivers will complete this safety inspection form which verifies the condition of their car is ready for the track and will be handed to us at check-in, or at 'grid tech', which is final inspection of your car on the day of the event. Well maintained Porsches should have no problem passing tech inspection, if they have good brakes, tires, no oil leaks and no defects. If in doubt, have the experts look at your car.
A no-host group dinner and check-in, for those who travel up the night before, will be at Casa Ramos in Willows at 6.30pm on September 25, 2014. Further details will be provided to all registered participants close to the day.
Registration Fee: $325, cancellation fee $75. No refunds after September 15, 2014. Instructors $50 - guest instructors or those not driving may come along for free. Lunch and bottled water is included with all registrations.
Please note that when you sign up, your card will be vaidated but not immediately charged until your place is confirmed.
