Porsche Club of America Diablo Region Track Day at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca 

 Monday, November 25, 2019

Limited size run groups, lots of track space, tons of track time

"Have Fun, Be Safe, Drive Fast"

THIS EVENT IS FOR PORSCHE CARS ONLY - All event details can be found at www.diablo-de.org

Instructors may drive any make of car



  • 11/19/19:  Only Instructor spots remain open.  All other run groups are filled.
  • 11/13/19:  Intermediate group is now full.
  • 11/12/19:  Beginner wait list is now full. 
  • 11/8/19:  We have filled our Instructor group.  No more instructors are required.
  • 10/27/19:  While we continue to have the Beginner's group wait listed we believe we will be able to accept 3 more Beginner drivers.  So if you are thinking about registering for this group, please do so soon!
  • 10/16/2019: All registrations for the Beginner run group (solo and with instructor) are now being placed on a wait list while we determine if additional drivers can be accepted.  There is no charge to be on the wait list, and we plan to determine the status of the wait listed drivers by November 11.  

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:

WeatherTech 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.  Porsches with the PSE (Porsche Sport Exhaust) option WILL EXCEED THE SOUND RESTRICTIONS when at full throttle at Laguna Seca, even if the PSE option is turned off!   Please read to Laguna Seca sound restriction information on our DE website (http://www.diablo-de.org) to learn how to keep under the sound limit and not get denied driving at Laguna Seca.  No refunds if your car fails to pass the 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:

  • Kahlers in Dublin – by appt. only

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

Private Instructors/Coaches:

Private instructors/coaches are welcome to attend our events once approved by our Chief Driving Instructor (CDI).  If you are bringing a coach to provide you instruction, please be aware that your instructor will need to:

  1. Contact our CDI to discuss their participation and obtain approval. 
  2. Need to register on MSR as an ‘Instructing Only’ instructor, and also list your name in the ‘Are You Sharing a Car’ section of their registration form.
  3. Will not drive their own cars on the track (unless they have registered as a participant and pay the participant fee).
  4. Adhere to all Diablo PCA and track operator requirements

Private instructors/coaches who show up at the day of the event without following the pre-registration requirements are not guaranteed to participate in this event.  Please contact the CDI if you have any questions.

Pre-Event Meetings/Dinners:

Drivers are invited (Beginners strongly recommended) to attend our DE Introduction briefing called DE 101, 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 held on Wednesday, November 13, at Pavlo's Pizza (2408 Twin Creeks Drive, San Ramon) from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

The always popular and fun no-host group dinner and check-in will be Sunday night, November 24 at Chef Lee's Mandarin House (2031 N. Fremont Street, Monterey), starting at 6:00pm. 


 Run Group Selection:

  • Drivers with 5 or less track days experience must register as Beginners (wait listed) 
  • Drivers with 19 or less track days should register as Beginners (wait listed) or Intermediate
