Event requirements

HEADS UP! If you completed a Technical Inspection for the April 2017 event, you do not need to have it done again!  Due to the short turnaround time between events, we have made this allowance for the June event only.

Driver's Education is designed to improve your driving skills and learn techniques at speed. Track experience is necessary for this event and skills learned will make you a better driver. This event features the West Track and Outer Loop, which provides a great opportunity to carry speed and learn a new track configuration in the same weekend!  UMC is a terrific facility with lots of amenities like paved parking, gas pumps and real bathrooms.  Food is available on-site, as are shaded areas for spectators.

You do not have to be a PCA member to participate, nor do you need to bring your Porsche! We expect a number of BMWs, Audis and other makes on the track.   There are also safety requirements for you and your car. These include a Snell M rated or SA 2010 or later helmet, and closed toe shoes.

Please indicate your level of experience on the registration form. There will be instructors available for the rookie and beginner groups.

Shared Cars –  if you want to share a car with another DE driver please note that you must run in separate groups (i.e. Beginner & Intermediate). If you have questions on how this will work please contact Greg Troester at de@irpca.org

Your car must have had a Full Tech inspection within the last 30 days prior to this event (annual tech forms are no longer accepted).

*Note - if you completed a technical inspection for the April 2017 event, you are good to go!  No re-inspection needed.

Find a full list of recommended inspection shops here: http://irpca.org/track-events/resources-rules/hpde-tech-approved-shops

Use the Safety Inspection Form found here: http://irpca.org/wp-content/uploads/DE/DE_Forms/2017_DE_TechForm.pdf

In addition, PCA National requires us to do a "Top Tech" at the track. Please have this form completed at the track, prior to checking in with the registration desk: http://irpca.org/wp-content/uploads/DE/DE_Forms/TopTechForm.pdf

Driver's Education Information
We look forward to having an extremely fun and safe event. We intend to follow PCA and Intermountain Region PCA guidelines during this event.

The Driver's Education program is based on a non-competitive format. We will not keep track of lap times.

Required equipment:

  1. A car that can pass a tech inspection, which must be current within 30 days of the event. Fill out the Tech Guidelines provided in the links above and turn it in at the registration table. You are responsible to make sure that your car is safe for high-speed use. If you have any concerns, contact the DE Chair: de@irpca.org
  2. Shorts and short sleeved shirts will be acceptable for this event. Cotton is OK. Fire resistant materials are recommended.
  3. Closed toe shoes made of cotton or leather. Socks are required.
  4. Helmets rated Snell M or SA 2010 or newerDOT and motocross helmets are not permitted.
  5. Stock seatbelts are OK but racing belts are encouraged as are roll bars, roll cages and Racing seats etc.  5 and 6 point harnesses can only be used with race seats.
  6. Brake lights must work, steering must not be loose, brakes should feel firm, suspension and wheel bearings should be checked for tightness.
  7. The car's contents must be cleared out prior to entering onto the track. Batteries must be secured.
  8. Numbers on both sides of the car must be a contrasting color to car body and be at least eight inches tall. Taller numbers are recommended at this track.
  9. No Convertibles without Roll Over protection. Porsche Boxsters and 996, 997, & 991 Cabriolets have Factory Roll over protection.  Earlier cars must add a Roll Bar or Roll Cage.
    1. Open-wheel cars are not permitted
    2. Race Cars are OK, provided that they can either pass the Standard Safety Inspection, or have a current logbook from a recognized racing association.
  10.  At any time, if you feel you need instruction, ask for an instructor. This track can be tricky and has several high-speed turns.

No passengers are allowed except for approved instructors (with identification) and their students.

Be safe on the track and in the pits. The Number One objective of novice drivers on a track should be to become aware of other traffic. Number two objective is to be aware of how your car responds to input.

There will be a “three spins and you're out” rule enforced for this event. If you have more than two spins during the event you will be asked to leave. Following each spin anywhere on or off the track, you will receive a black flag telling you to come into the pits safely to have a chat with the IRPCA member running that group. He will ask you to analyze what happened. If you don't know, you'll be asked to exit the track at that point. If you realize what happened, explain what you could do differently and you’ll be allowed back on the track.  Your car will also be given a quick look over for damage.

You are responsible to know the meaning of the flags listed here: http://irpca.org/track-events/resources-rules/track-flags
Learn what the flags mean. Pay attention to the flag explanation in the drivers meeting. Also make sure you understand where passing is allowed. Passing at the wrong place or without a signal will result in expulsion.

Pass only on the straights and never in corners. Do not pass without being signaled by the driver that you are going to pass. Slower drivers should indicate your knowledge of cars about to pass you by pointing them past. You will not make friends by holding people up who are faster than you are.
