This tour will be conducted using the most recent Washington State and PCA Covid-19 restrictions!  What that means for PNWR is that we have to modify the way we conduct our tours.  Specifically what this means is:

1)  We will be using the new electronic waiver called SpeedWaiver developed by  Every registrant, including passengers, must have a smart phone with a camera.  This link is included here:  A smart phone is required to electronically sign the PCA Waiver of Liability AND the Communicable Disease Waiver (CDW).  The signed waivers will be stored by MotorsportReg (MSR) so compliance can be tracked.  There will be NO hard copies of the waiver sheets at the start point.  The link to the SpeedWaiver is: Follow the steps outlined in the link to electronically sign the two waivers.

2) There will be no mass driver's meeting/safety briefing at the staging area.  Instead, the safety briefing and tour notes will be sent via an MSR mass email to all registrants as required reading prior to the tour.

3) The route instructions will also be sent in the mass email and MUST BE printed out by the registrant.  There will be NO hard copies available at the staging area.

4)  No minors will be allowed to attend the tour since there is currently no means for them to be covered under the SmartWaiver.

5) There are no group meals planned for the tour due to restrictions on group sizes.  However, Eric Breidenbach, the tour leader, is working on some dining options at restaurants in the local area near the hotel.  These will be identified once finalized, but all meals will be "on your own" in compliance with local Covid-19 restrictions on seating and number of people allowed., so we may be eating in the same location(s), but not as a large group.  You will need to make your won reservations, if the restaurant requires advanced reservations. 

6) It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that every car have a two-way radio since all communication will be conducted using the radios.

7) Group arrival times at the start point will be spaced further apart to minimize the number of people at the start point at one time.  Groups will also be smaller, so we need a lot of group leads and sweeps!

SO, if you can live with this highly modified tour format, read on!  If not, please do not register.


This is the first PNWR overnight tour to the upper end of the Olympic Peninsula in several years, so it should be something NEW to many of our new members and a "welcome back" to the "old heads"!  Great roads beckon us from sea to sky. Over three days we will explore destinations across the upper Olympic Peninsula, some of the most iconic in Washington.This tour takes you along winding, tree lined back roads beside the water, up to spectacular views of the Olympic mountains from Hurricane Ridge and on to dramatic Cape Flattery, the northwestern most point in the the continental United StatesSPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THIS TOUR:  At the time registration opens, some venues are still closed due to Covid-19 restrictions.  Therefore, we are unable to provide specific information on restaurants, meal choices and whether certain venues will be open to groups (Cape Flattery, Hurricane Ridge, etc).  These details will be provided when we know more.  Bottom line--be flexible!!  Thanks.
