5/11/19:  All Sponsored Driver spots have been filled.  Only a few non-Sponsored Advanced spots remain open.

5/8/19: Beginners run group is full. No additional Beginners can be accepted.  Intermediate run group is only accepting Sponsored Drivers.

5/2/19:  We can no longer accept any more Beginners to our Wait List, as it is extremely full at this time.  Only Sponsored Beginners can still register.  We will notify the current Wait Listed Beginners of their status within the next week.

We are now Wait Listing Non-Sponsored Intermediate Drivers. There is no charge to be on the Wait List, and we will clear people off the list on a first registered/first confirmed process.  We plan to have the final decision on wait listed drivers by May 10.

4/22/19: We are continuing to accept Non-Sponsored Beginners on to a Wait List, but please note that this Wait List is rather large.  The probably of a new Wait Listed Beginner being accepted for this event is rather low.

4/11/19: NON-SPONSORED BEGINNER DRIVES ON WAIT LIST.  Effective today all non-sponsored Beginner registrations will be placed on a Wait List.  There is no charge to be on the Wait List, and we will clear people off the list on a first registered/first confirmed process.  We plan to have the final decision on wait listed drivers by May 6.


General Information:

This event is open to all Porsche drivers from first time beginners through advanced level track drivers. We expect to run four run groups: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Instructors.  The DE team will review all registered drivers and will confirm the run group classification of all drivers based on overall track experience.  During the event the DE team will work to accommodate drivers wishing to change run groups, subject to approval by our Chief Driving Instructor (CDI).  Instructors will be allocated to all 'first time' drivers to the track.

Two Drivers Sharing One Car:

Please note that if you intend to share one car with two different drivers, BOTH drivers need to register AND be capable of running in different run groups.  That is, both drivers cannot drive in the same run group.  No passengers or guests allowed in cars during hot lap sessions.   If we do offer a parade lap session during this event, passengers will be allowed at that time.

Passing will be with mandatory point-by in all groups. We take safety very seriously, and will 'black flag' any participant who disregards passing protocols or consistently fails to give point by's, including denying access to the track with no refund of registration fees if deemed necessary by the safety officer. (Fortunately, in 8 years we have hardly ever had this happen because, as a limited sized group, we have a chance get to know each other and conga lines rarely happen!).

We are a Porsche club, not a driving school or a driving business.  We run several safe, fun and friendly track events each year. We do not race, time trial or time laps. We limit this event to 25 cars per run group so that we can offer plenty of room on track and lots of track time. The registration fee includes a full yummy lunch and bottled water throughout the day.

Sound Limit Strictly Enforced:

Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca enforces a strict sound limit.  This is expected to be a 90db day so please make sure your car will pass under the limit prior to arriving at the track.  No refunds if your car fails to pass the at track sounds checks.

Safety Inspection Information:

All drivers must certify that their car has passed a safety inspection by an authorized person within 30 days of this event per PCA guidelines.  The safety inspection form can be downloaded from our DE website (http://www.diablo-de.org/home.html). All drivers will complete this safety inspection form which verifies the condition of their car is ready for the track and will be handed to us at check-in, or at 'grid tech', which is final inspection of your car on the day of the event. Well maintained Porsches should have no problem passing tech inspection, if they have good brakes, tires, no oil leaks and no defects. If in doubt, have the experts look at your car.  

The following sponsors are offering free tech inspections:

  • Porsche Livermore – by appt. only

Please call the Service Department at (925) 344-5609 and ask for Kayla or John

  • Kahlers in Dublin – by appt. only

Contact them at service@kahlers.com or by phone at 925-829-2050.

Pre-Event Meetings/Dinners:

Drivers are invited (Beginners strongly recommended) to attend our DE Introduction briefing called DE 101 / 201, which is typically held two weeks prior to the event. We will have a section for new drivers to track, as well as discuss driving Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, an opportunity to share experience for all levels.  This event will be on May 8, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, at Porsche Livermore.

The always popular and fun no-host group dinner and check-in will be Sunday night, May 19, starting at 6:00pm. The dinner will be served family style at:

Chef Lee’s Mandarin House,

2031 N Fremont St, Monterey, CA

  • Drivers with 5 or less track days experience should register as Beginners (FULL)
  • Drivers with 19 or less track days should register as Beginners (FULL) or Intermediate (Sponsored Only)
