SCCA Chicago/Milwaukee Full-Day PDX & Club Trial

Blackhawk Farms Raceway

About this event

SCCA Chicago Region track days are sponsored by Blackdog Speed Shop, Underground Autosports and Discount Tire. Milwaukee Region track days are sponsored by West Bend Dyno Tuning and Schlossmann Honda City.

What is a Performance Driving Experience (PDX) track day?

An SCCA Performance Driving Experience (PDX) track day offers you a chance to drive your car on a real race track. It’s an opportunity to explore the capabilities of your car at greater-than-highway speeds and get practice and instruction in car control and handling. PDXs are noncompetitive, so there is no pressure to perform beyond your comfort level.

Participants are separated by experience and ability into three or four groups, from novice to advanced, with safety as the goal. If you are a novice, you’ll have the guidance of a highly experienced driver riding with you in the car. Of course, FUN is the real reason for participating, and we will do all we can to make your track day one that will keep you smiling for a long time.

Club Trial

If you're ready to have your on-track performance timed, then a Club Trial is for you. Club Trials build on the experience drivers have gained in PDX while enabling them to officially track their lap times to see improvement. A Club Trial is the second level of the SCCA Time Trials program

Schedule & Requirements

The tentative schedule is:

Registration and technical inspection - 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Mandatory drivers' meeting - 8 a.m.
On-track activities commence - 9 a.m.
Sessions end - 4:30 p.m.

Fee is $250 for full SCCA members. Nonmembers must purchase a weekend membership. Transponder rental fee for Club Trial is $30. Lunch is included for drivers and volunteers.

You don’t need a sports or performance car to participate, just a car (no trucks or SUVs) with a factory hard top or approved roll-over protection, a valid driver’s license, and a helmet (loaner helmets are available). You must be at least 16 years old to register.

If you bring people along, be sure to remind them to ask about “Instructor Ride Along” opportunities available to them for a small fee while they are on site.

For more information, please refer to the PDX page, including Track Flags and Tech Sheet, on the SCCA Chicago Region website.
