Do you like to drive really fast? How would you like the opportunity to drive your own car on the track down at Gateway International? This is not straight line racing (boring) You get to drive on oval course, then inside doing hairpin turns, curves, straightaways...driving your car at high speeds in a safe enviroment!

Thanks, ... have you done it?
SCCA PDX is their HPDE series.
Not bad ... infield transitions look OK and good run-off.
Corvette can pull some G's on the track arc coming out of turn 7.
Trackpedia has track guide. :thumb:

Yep, i've done it twice so far! Wow....it's almost like "you've" done it the way your describing turn 7.

I've done it, i liked it...however, i've worked 2nd shift for 10 years now. When you have to be at the track at 6am, i don't care how much coffee you pump into yourself...i just couldn't give it my "all" till the afternoon. I'll probably go and hang around...the people there are really nice. But i doubt i'll run....you want to be on top of your game when you are driving that fast...I'm not :(

This coming Saturday, we will be having a car tech to allow people to have their car checked out before coming to the track.

Details are listed here:

Schedule


Last year, every track event was sold out - so do not wait until the last minute to sign up. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask. I have trained instructors and instructed for this group for two years and they are very friendly to drivers of all car makes.
