I'm getting ready to do the same thing. I haven't road raced in almost 30 years but I'm ready to go at it again. I went to the race at PIR but instead of watching decided to volunteer. I met some great people, got a line on some cars, and in general felt more connected than would have been possible as merely a spectator.
Best wishes and hope to see you out there.
Definately!!! I'm from Salem so portland is no issue. I know about the new one in the dalles...its team continental's new track right??? or is it cascade sports car club's? I can't remember. Let me know what you know and amybe I will be able to get to one or both!
Cool, I'm in Pacific City. Team Continental has ORP in The Dalles, CSCC is PIR. If you want to help out, contact Ken at [email protected] and he can give you the information. He's both SCCA and CSCC.
Hope it works out, see ya there!
Sean, just in case you're still following this thread, I'm waiting to buy a vintage Formula Vee when the present owner decides what he wants for it. Unfortunately it's already too late for this season.
Cascade Sports Car Club has a beginning driver school for the very reasonable price of $200, using your own car - or as some do, one of Budget's. I'm going to take the school as it's far less expensive than SCCA or SOVREN approved schools, will get me racing, and the local ICSCC clubs will provide much more track time.
This is a really great opportunity to get on the track and improve driving skills at an affordable price. I looked around for hours but was held back by $2000+ prices. Turned out the best way is right in our back yard. I'm going to a class at PIR in a couple weeks so the weather will still be nice. October is a little sketchy, at least here on the coast.
