Race in March (2011, Seattle Area)

Since Anijo bailed on keeping track of this I thought I'd give it a shot. (Yes, I stole his post and formatting)

I'll try and keep up with who plans on attending what event. If it's too much of a pain, I'll stop. Regardless of if I update the Members planning on attending lists, we can use this thread to organize meeting up to go to an event etc. as well. The Tacoma Mall Krispy Kreme has worked out pretty well for Bremerton based events. Southcenter Mall would work out better for Packwood events for those going early. Click the location link for directions to any of the sites. For PR, click the directions link on their site (it's in Java so I can't link straight to it).

Membership Requirements:
  • Alfa Events: No Membership Required
  • BEAC Events: Must be a Boeing Employee
  • BSCC Events: Must be a BSCC Member [$25 Membership]
  • Porsche Pacific Northwest Events: Schools - Porsche Club Sponsor or Membership in one of the following clubs: PCA, Alfa, Audi, BMWCCA, BSCC, Corvette, Mini, Viper, or PDC club member
  • Porsche Club Oregon Region: Unknown, see http://www.oregonpca.org/
  • Proformance Racing School: Must be a client for all non-school events, going to a school makes you a client, or be a member of the Alfa or Porsche clubs.
  • NWR SCCA Events: Membership Required [$10 Weekend memberships available on site, full memberships available online for $45 or $60, up to 3 weekend memberships can count towards a full one]
  • SCCA Oregon Region Events: Membership Required [$10 Weekend memberships available on site, full time memberships must be Dual Region]
  • WWSCC - No Membership Required (I think)

Pre-registration varies from Event to Event. Pre-Registration is always cheaper, sometimes required, but not always available more than 2 weeks before the event. Always check the link for a given event.

Remember to Bring:
  • Oil - During the lapping days you can burn as much as a quart! Autocross days are less, but it's still worth topping off at the beginning of the event
  • Sunblock - Especially for the autocross events where you'll spend half the time working the course
  • Water - No matter what the event, it's going to be hot in your helmet and car
  • Helmet (If you have one that meets the requirements) - All clubs require a helmet, some will lend you one in exchange for your license, others will charge you money to rent one. Helmet Requirements (always double check the club's listing!):
    • AutoX - Snell Approved M2005 or higher
    • Lapping - Snell Approved SA2005 or higher
  • Cash - At almost all Bremerton events, the local Lions Club will show up and serve cheap burgers, hot dogs and Philly Cheese Steaks but they're cash only
  • Your Checkbook - All autocross events that involve timing equipment have a rule: If you car touches the timing equipment, it's a $100 fine payable on the spot. You can sometimes run and pick up money from an ATM down the street but it's easier if you have your checkbook handy.
    • Don't be intimidated by this, in reality, it's very rare. The club doesn't WANT this to happen, so they setup the course to try and prevent it from happening
  • Gas
    • AutoX - 1/2 tank or more
    • AutoX Practice - Full tank
    • School - Full Tank
    • Lapping - Full Tank

Yah... I dunno, I want to try and do one last event before I sell the car but I just got it back from the body shop and I'm gonna feel silly if I get some new cone marks on it... I'm also back to stock suspension and only have 3 Starspecs left.


Good job though Mike

dondo,

you should integrate these list into here as well.

The alfa event seem pretty good deal since no membership required but you have to attend the school 3/20/11 to participate in the rest of the event.

Are passengers allowed at the PGP events?

And what is the difference between a PGP lapping day and a PGP lap attack day?
