Time Attack Course:
Sunday May 1st will be the second round of the PPIR Time Attack Series and will feature a course on the autocross lot. This will be the first time in 2016 that PPIR has held a Time Attack event on the lot. The event has been moved to the autocross lot due to the impending weather conditions for Sunday and SCCA canceling their event leaving the lot vacant.
The first round of the Drift Colorado Competition Series will feature a course layout on the road course at PPIR. The course begins with a straight line acceleration area which leads into the carousel; a long sweeping 180 degree turn. the remainder of the course is a combination corner section of esses, all the way to the finish line. This course is high speed and great for tandem battles. For drivers with lower horse power, a tip to make sure your car will be able to keep drift for the entire duration of the course, is to run high air pressure in your tires, decreasing the contact patch of rubber to the road. The course layout on the map below is an approximation only and is subject to change.
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.
