About this event


 

Cascade Sports Car Club HPDE Track Day at Portland International Raceway

PLEASE JOIN US FOR A TRACK DAY EVENT IN CONJUNCTION WITH A CLUB RACE
This event is a great opportunity to come out and be part of a "Race Weekend"!! Between your sessions on track there will be race group qualifying and afternoon races!  Spend the day driving and when not driving, watching some great racing. Or come out and spend the day driving around the track with time still left in the day to get those weekend chores finished!

LIMIT: 25 CARS

COST: $149

This is for HPDE Advanced participants only -- must have a minimum of three days of track experience within the last 2 years. There are no speed limits and passing is allowed only in designated sections. The morning HPDE driver's meeting will go over the passing areas and rules. HPDE Advanced participants are held to a higher standard due to their experience and the fact that there will be no instructor in the car.  Drive smart and safe. 

All entrants must be at least 18 years old and possess a current valid Driver's license. Helmets are required -- Snell M2005 or SA2005 or newer. Helmets are available for rent ($10). All cars will go through a minor tech inspection on the morning of the track day, but it is the responsibility of the participant to ensure that their car is in good mechanical condition. Tires should be in good condition, the wheels properly tightened and plenty of brake pad, etc. Convertibles have more strict requirements -- CSCC-ConvertibleRollbarRequirements.pdf

Registration opens at 7:30AM

Tech opens at 7:30AM          

You must check in with registration located on the second floor of the tower. Show registration your Driver's license and sign the waiver. You will be given a tech form. Your car will be inspected in the pre-grid area prior to going on track.

Event requirements

Track Day Requirements: Safety is our primary concern. We require a helmet certified as SNELL M2005 (novice school only) or SA2005 or newer. We have helmets available to rent ($10) also.

Long pants and closed-toe shoes are requiredWe strongly recommend 100% cotton or Nomex clothing: underwear/bra/socks, long-sleeve shirts, long pants; leather shoes and gloves (no nylon inserts). If you have made track driving your hobby, we highly recommend that you invest in Nomex driving attire. Please do your research before buying, as "not all that glitters is gold." 

You will bring your own vehicle. It may be a daily-driver, modified street car, or fully-prepped racecar. It must be in good condition, free of leaks or safety issues, with fully-functioning seat belts (for driver and instructor), and plenty of brakes and tire tread. We also recommend installing at least a partial roll cage in your car (but this is not a requirement for HPDE).

Convertibles/open-cockpit cars must have approved functional roll bar(s) -- see note below. No pop-up roll bars will be allowed. 

Cars will be inspected before being allowed on the track.This inspection and roll bar acceptance is not a certification of a car’s safety or its ability to withstand the stress of this driving event. You are fully responsible for finding and remedying any safety issues prior to the event.

HPDE participants may not be allowed on track if their instructor does not feel safe in the vehicle (concerns about seats, seat belts, equipment status, etc.). The organizers will make every effort to secure a replacement instructor for the HPDE participant, but in the situation where one cannot be substituted the participant will not be able to go on track in the car. If this situation occurs, then the participant will not be charged for the event. It is the participants responsibility to ensure that their car is in satisfactory condition, especially all safety equipment, for the rigors of high performance driving on a racetrack. 

Per our insurance requirements, all entrants must be 18 years of age or older and show a valid driver's license at registration.

Items Covered in the Vehicle Technical Inspection:

  • Adequate tire tread
  • Proper tire inflation
  • Loose items removed
  • No cracks in Window in Drivers View
  • Seat belts in good condition and working order
  • Driver and passenger seats secure
  • Brake lights functional
  • Ensure the positive terminal on the battery is properly covered
  • The battery needs to be mechanically secured to the car
  • The helmet requirement is Snell SA2005 or Snell M2005, or newer.
  • Roll bar (convertibles)
  • Eye protection (convertibles)

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT CONVERTIBLES:

Convertibles are defined as cars with retractable tops, whether soft-top or folding hardtop. Convertibles are not allowed to participate in sessions driven at speed without a roll bar and a 5- or 6-point harness for each occupant (which also implies seats that allow for proper mounting and routing of the 5- or 6-point harness). Arm restraints are strongly recommended. The use of a roll bar meeting the minimum requirements is described in CSCC-ConvertibleRollbarRequirements.pdf. Cars equipped with only factory popup posts are not allowed.

Cars with factory-installed, fixed rollover protection or removable roof sections (including Targa tops and T-tops) may be allowed only if the both the driver and passenger are within the protection of the Helmet Reference Plane described in section A.1 in CSCC-ConvertibleRollbarRequirements.pdf
