Porsche Club of America Diablo & Sequoia Regions Track Day at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca 

 Monday, November 20th 

 Sponsored by Porsche of Fresno

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



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 7 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.  Please read our "Advice for making the sound limits at Mazda Laguna Seca Racewayon our DE website.  Don't be 'that' guy!

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 (https://www.diablo-de.org). 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 sponsor is offering free tech inspections:

  • Kahlers in Dublin – by appt. only

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

Pre-Event Information:
