Racin' Round the Willows 2

Buttonwillow Raceway

About this event


 

 Our Driver Education + Autocross at Buttonwillow Raceway Park is sponsored by Santa Barbara Porsche for PCA members, with and without Porsche cars and non-PCA members, with and without Porsche cars.  All cars must have fenders.  No Formula cars are allowed by our insurance.  Instruction will be provided for up to 20 students depending upon Instructor availability.  Maximum entry is 65 with 3 run groups.  All students will be in one run group.  Others must have prior experience with us or a signed off log book.  If your eligibility is in question, please contact Jon Milledge, CCCR-CDI 805-704-8785 or email jon.milledge@me.com.

We recommend you study this track video.  Never mind it is a front wheel drive car with brake reservoirs poking out of the dash.   http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=buttonwillow+raceway+counter-clockwise+youtube&&view=detail&mid=DD19383D12852DF53D30DD19383D12852DF53D30&rvsmid=DD19383D12852DF53D30DD19383D12852DF53D30&fsscr=0&FORM=VDFSRV

The DE schedule is available at: http://ccc.pca.org/de-run-time-schedule/

Tech forms are available at:ccc.pca.org/de-forms/

As introduced in the first sentence of this document, we plan on having a DE and an Autocross.  You must run the DE to be eligible for the Autocross.  If you choose to run only the DE, you will still get the same amount of track time as in a normal DE.  We will do that by limiting entries to 65 and having only three run groups for the DE.  All students will still be in one run group but there may be other beginners assigned to the student group.  We have done this previously.  After lunch, there will be DE run groups, then we will stop the DE and prepare for the AX.  We estimate this will take 30 minutes to move some of our workers to a different station and set up our timing equipment.  We estimate that each run will average less than one minute.  We estimate that we can have three runs per minute for two hours or 240 runs.  Divide this by the number of entrants desiring to run could produce four runs per competitor.  This may not be possible but it is our goal.
