About this event

 

 

 

This event has been canceled due to new Covid restrictions announced by Gov. Inslee, Nov 15th, 2020. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

 


The Northwest Alfa Romeo Club has been providing safe and fun High Performance Driver Education (HPDE) events to club members, non-members, family and friends, and the car enthusiast community in the Pacific Northwest  for over 30 years.

On Sunday, November 22nd we invite all our sport driving friends to join us for an afternoon of spirited driving, camaraderie, and good times. This is a late afternoon HPDE event being held at Pacific Raceways in Kent, and is an open lapping format designed to provide club members and non-member guests the thrill of driving their beloved Alfa Romeos and all other vehicle types in a "spirited" manner on a closed road course. This event is open to all experienced drivers regardless of member or non-member affiliation with NWARC or any other regional car clubs, and an NWARC membership is NOT required. A 1-day temporary AROC membership is included in the registration cost for non-members for this individual event, and you are of course welcome to join NWARC (AROC) and enjoy the annual membership benefits if you desire: http://www.aroc-usa.org/application.php

Previous sport (track) driving and HPDE experience is required as a prerequisite for this event. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation and the WA State mandate for "social distancing" we will NOT have in-car instructors available for this event. So it is critical that you have verifiable credentials from NWARC, Proformance Racing School, or any other reputable car club/organization for "solo driving" in either Novice, Intermediate, or Advanced run groups. You also must have driven solo on track at Pacific Raceways at least 2-times in the past two years. If you are not sure whether your current experience level qualifies you for this event or you have on-track experience that is not documented here on Motorsportreg.com, please do not hesitate to contact the event registrar Mirko Freguia
