Double Down Course:
The Double Down Time Attack at Pikes Peak International Raceway allows drivers to face off against each other in a car versus car race. The unique course design provides a safe and controlled environment where the drivers may race through the track simultaneously! This creates an exciting battle as the drivers accelerate up to the finish line potentially at the same time. The Double Down Time Attack on will allow plenty of practice runs throughout the day and elimination runs (sorted by vehicle classification) will begin in the afternoon until the field is narrowed down to the winners of each class. There will be plenty of time for fun-runs at the end of the day after the competition portion of the event.
The drift course layout on mimics the Pro Formula Drift course at Road Atlanta (the upcoming FD event of 2016). This layout provides a high-speed entry directly in front of the spectator area and then leads into a series of technical switchbacks. The course design doubles back on itself for the second part of the lap. The 12 acre autocross lot will comfortably fit a second course that will be running simultaneously with the Road Atlanta Course! This second course is a low-speed layout (perfect for low powered cars and super close tandem battles) that we call the PPIR SportsLand Course. The term SportsLand is used often in Japan at smaller sized technical drift circuits and our layout fits the name just right! The two courses will give the drivers maximum seat time and a variety of driving styles to explore.
A few quick tips to make sure your day at PPIR goes smoothly:
* Make sure to read through the tech inspection card to ensure that your car and your helmet are ready to go for the day. If anything is found to not meet the requirements, you will not be able to drive!
* Check your tires after every run. If a tire blows-out during a run it is possible to damage your car in numerous ways, if you see chords it's time to switch out wheels/tires.
* Use the donut box to sharpen your car control skills throughout the day.
