What is a Performance Driving Experience (PDX) track day?
An SCCA Performance Driving Experience (PDX) track day offers you a chance to drive your car on a real race track. It’s an opportunity to explore the capabilities of your car at greater-than-highway speeds and get practice and instruction in car control and handling. PDXs are noncompetitive, so there is no pressure to perform beyond your comfort level.
Participants are separated by experience and ability into three or four groups, from novice to advanced, with safety as the goal. If you are a novice, you’ll have the guidance of a highly experienced driver riding with you in the car. Of course, FUN is the real reason for participating, and we will do all we can to make your track day one that will keep you smiling for a long time.
If you're ready to have your on-track performance timed, then a Club Trial is for you. Club Trials build on the experience drivers have gained in PDX while enabling them to officially track their lap times to see improvement. A Club Trial is the second level of the SCCA Time Trials program

Registration and technical inspection - 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m.

If you bring people along, be sure to remind them to ask about “Instructor Ride Along” opportunities available to them for a small fee while they are on site.
