This is going to be very cheap.  Other regions are charging [2] 20 minute sessions for $120.  We are offering [5] 20 minute sessions for $125.  That being said the price is the same if you just do Saturday or Sunday only.

Session times for PDX are:
> Sat 8:30 am (20 minutes)
> Sat 1st after lunch break (20 minutes)
> Sat after last race group (20 minutes)
> Sun 9:15 am (20 minutes)
> Sun between last 20 lap race group and before enduro start (20 minutes)

There will be some "classroom" before/after each session.

Quote from: "karl"
I downloaded the PDX info sheet and have 2 questions.

1.  The opening paragraph says to be familiar with the 2009 Time Trial Rules, but the link is to the 2008 Rules.  Is their any major difference between the 2 sets of rules?

2.  The Technical Inspection paragraph states that Tech forms should be completed prior to the event.  Where are these forms located?

It looks like a generic form was copied and the info is dated.  This is the current rules for Time Trail - Level 1 - PDX: ... l1-PDX.pdf

Don't let the name fool you, there is no timing in Level 1.

Well since there appears to be no tech forms attached to file we can not hold students accountable for not filling one out prior to the event.  But the rules state "good working order".  So at a minimum the car would have to pass auto-X tech, have a working tail light, passenger seat safety equal to driver seat.

My must do quick tips:
Brakes, brakes, brakes. This is the only must do performance wise. Good high performance pads, high temp fluid, and a recent fluid change. Buy some extra pads to bring with you and you can return them if you don’t need them. Buy track purpose pads. Just do something…..

This is for the people (friends, family, co-workers..) out there that want to try auto-X, but don't have a car or don't want to use their car.  

I have a beat ass car for this very purpose.  Yeah, it will be slow and probably handle like a greased turd.  It will be automatic, because 75% of the people that said they could drive stick skills showed through when the green flag dropped in the NX and G20.


NOVICES have first dibs, the least amount of experience driver will bump more experienced drivers off "the list".  Accepting 4 drivers per event max (2 for novice school).  Stand me up for an event that resulted in me turning another perspective driver away will be your last time for the year.

From the SCCA standpoint I guess you should have a driver's license and under 18 follow minor wavier rules found somewhere on .

This is FREE, although a $5-$10-$20 would be nice to cover gas, wear and tear but absolutely not required.  Vehicle costs are also supplemented by the hotdog/hamburger/sausage sales.

Just send an email .

Powers that be yeah or nae?

I am not a member of FSAE anymore but would like to put together a more dedicated novice (beater) car.  100% transparency if requested.  Couldn't make it out all the time last year due to home purchase but the big grill will be back in full force.  All prices donation only, proceeds will go towards gas, an oil change, junkyard tires and eventually a nicer beater car.

I guess this would only apply to ECC-N events, BIMP has concessions and SEAD still going to have the roach coach?
