Drivers Skills Event - PCA - Inland North West Region

Spokane County Fairgrounds - Sat, May 11, 2019

Driver Skills Overview

Driver Skills is a one day clinic on the fundamentals of performance driving hosted by the Inland Northwest Region of the Porsche Club of America. Appropriate for novices and experienced drivers alike, Driver Skills will make you a safer, more competent driver on the street. Working one-on-one with our Instructors, students rotate in small groups through the following educational segments: 

  • Classroom
  • Slalom
  • Wet Skidpad
  • Threshold Braking and Accident Avoidance
  • Figure-8
  • Autocross

None of the segments involve timing or competition. The student works one-on-one with their instructor at a pace appropriate for your experience and comfort level. Together, the segments improve the students ability to look ahead, precisely place the vehicle, control weight transfer, steer with the throttle and brake effectively. At the end of the day students are encouraged to apply the day’s lessons to a simplified Autocross.

The Driver Skills participation fee is $100 including a box lunch and water. Helmets are not required for this relatively low speed 10 acre venue. Limited helmets for rent for $25 are available at the venue on a first come basis. Registration is encouraged through It is possible to register by mail and pay by check using the INWR website (

The venue for this event is a large, 10 acre parking lot, located south of the Spokane County  Fairgrounds. The asphalt surface of the lot is old and has cracks with grass stalks sticking through; this can be seen in the photos. The segments used in the Skills event are planned to avoid as much of the cracking as possible but complete avoidance is impossible. Pieces of loose asphalt and small rocks get loosely trapped in the cracks and the motion of vehicles across them sometimes breaks the stones loose which in turn may impact the lower surfaces over your vehicle. Clear bra or blue painters tape is effective as a deterrent to the “pings” left by the rocks. The latter can be easily removed promptly after the event.
