Performance Driving Experience

Attention Drivers:

The Tri-Region Race Group is hosting two one-day SCCA Performance Driving Experiences (PDE) on Friday and Saturday, June 17 and 18, 2005 at Pocono International Raceway.

Entries will be limited to 100 cars each day, and the number of Novice drivers to 25 each day. There will be three run groups each day – one novice and two experienced. The number of cars per run group will be based on the experience of the drivers. All drivers can expect at least 2 hours of track time each day.

Entry forms and instructions are available at

The Event

The course used both days will be the Club Race Course (2.5 miles). This is the same course used for the last two SCCA National Races. It is a 2.5 mile road course, run clockwise, with the natural bus stop chicane on the Long Pond straight. This gives the driver a challenging infield road course with the Devils Elbow, two high speed straights, a bus stop chicane with a second gear exit, and one high banked turn (NASCAR turn #1).

Entry Fees

Only pre-paid entries will be accepted. All spots will be assigned in order of payment received. When all spots are sold out, a waiting list will be started in the order additional entry payments are received. No payments will be accepted at the track.

Overnight camping will be available at the track Friday night. There may be car Corrals depending on the interest. Cars participating in the Corrals will not be charged an entry fee and can buy tickets for the Pig Roast. Also, see lodging list for local hotels/motels.

The PDE will be open to all licensed drivers 18 years of age and over, both SCCA members and non-SCCA members. Students will use their own cars (see requirements below).

Are you going to the event? The only NER race that weekend is Beaverun. Too far for a single. Besides I would rather get the practice in for the double in August. Should be fun instructing too.
