Porsche Club of America Diablo Region Track Day at THUNDERHILL RACEWAY PARK Friday, March 27, 2015.
We're going back to the 5-Mile Circuit!
Limited size run groups, lots of track space, tons of track time.
"Have Fun, Be Safe, Drive Fast"
THIS EVENT IS FOR PORSCHE CARS ONLY - All event details can be found at www.diablo-de.org
This event is open to all Porsche drivers from first time beginners through advanced level track drivers. We expect to run three run groups: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced and will classify drivers based on overall track experience. 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 7 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 this event to 30 cars per run group (remember this circuit is 5 miles long) so that we can offer plenty of room on track and lots of track time. The registration fee includes a full yummy lunch 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 (https://www.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.
The always popular and fun no-host group dinner and check-in will be Thursday night March 26 at Casa Ramos in Willows beginnning at 6:30pm. Bring your guests to dinner as well, it's always a good time.
Registration Fee: $325 per driver, cancellation fee $75. Sorry, no refunds after March 16. Instructors who also want to drive their own cars are $50. Instructors who just instruct are free. Lunch and bottled water is included with all registrations. Registration will close when driver count is reached, or on midnight, March 16th.
Please note that if you intend to share one car with two different drivers, BOTH drivers need to register AND be capable of running in different run groups. That is, both drivers cannot drive in the same run group.
No passengers or guests allowed in cars during hot laps. IF we have parade laps, passengers are allowed.
