Portland Int'l Raceway

About this event

The Shelby American Automobile Club Northwest is hosting another open track event at Portland International Raceway (PIR) on Thursday, August 26th, 2021. All makes are welcome. Our intention is to have a fun and exciting track day which allows you to drive your car on the world famous "PIR". If you have been itching to try out your performance car on a closed track or you have been doing it for 50 years we have the event for you. We will limit run groups to 20 cars each for four 15- 20 minute run groups: Novice, Intermediate, Vintage Exhibition, and Advanced. We expect to have 5 sessions for each run group. We encourage first time open trackers to see what you have been missing. There will be plenty of help with instructors for new or new to PIR drivers depending on the pandemic rules at that time. 

Vintage Exhibition Group is back. Last year we added a new run group called "Vintage Exhibition Group" which included all makes from 1978 and earlier. It will be slower pace with gentlemanly rules. We want this to be a no-harassment, low intensity, fun drive around with vintage cars and vintage drivers with the same 5 sessions. The same tech requirements holds for the Vintage Exhibition Group. 

We expect to have an all day track photographer.

Cost is $275 per driver.
