Time Attack Course:
The Time Attack Course for Round #4 of the points championship will be challenging with fast sections of the track and slow tight / technical components as well. The course will feature a layout which incorporates the pit lane, turn 1 of the oval, the apron at the bottom of turn 1 and the front straightaway at PPIR. This will be the first occasion that the Time Attack course has been set on this section of the raceway in 2016. The staging lanes will also be located in a new spot being on the west side of the garages. This course will be spectator friendly as people will be able to watch from the cold side of the pit lane wall.

Kart Track:
The event on 6/19 will feature an outdoor rental kart track on the inside of the quarter mile oval at PPIR. It is going to be a blast!! Make sure to give it a try! Buy your tickets at the beer garden.

Drift Course:
The drift course for June 19th will feature a fast and wide layout along with a small practice area for donuts and figure 8's.  The large track will begin with a high-speed manji where drivers will flick the car's outside rear towards a clipping zone directly in front of the spectator area. Following the outer clipping zone at the spectator area the drivers will negotiate around an inner clip in the center of the straightaway then immediately start slowing the car down with some e-brake modulation. Turn one is a large decreasing radius corner which feeds into an even larger turn two with more than 180 degrees of directional change. The last corner on the track will be a hair pin. The drivers will be entering and exiting the track through the same gate this time around in order to minimize traffic through the pit area.

 

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.


IMPORTANT INFO - Be sure to reach the full Rules and Regulations
DO NOT message us about car numbers, we are not reserving numbers for anyone. You may choose your number per classification and remaining numbers are first come, first serve on Sunday morning during tech inspection. 
* MAKE SURE TO PARK IN YOUR PROPER LANE LABELED FOR YOUR CLASSIFICATION WHEN YOU ARRIVE IN THE MORNING FOR TECH INSPECTION (there will be plenty of room in the new grid lanes). The lanes will be labeled and our staff will help to direct traffic accordingly. Classifications are declared on our website in a downloadable .pdf document (AWD A, AWD B, RWD A, RWD B, FWD A, FWD B and Exhibition). The first three letters declare the drive-train type, the "A" or "B" declares a power to weight ratio. If your car has a power to weight ratio of 12 pounds or more per horse power you are in B. If your car has less than 12 pounds per horse power you are in A. FORMULA = Vehicle Weight divided by Horse Power (use a Google search to find your car's Curb Weight and Horse Power rating and take all mods into consideration, because PPIR will). Classification of any vehicle is COMPLETELY AND ULTIMATELY at the discretion of PPIR. If your car is borderline between A and B PPIR will make the decision for you.
* ALL CARS MUST BE STREET LEGAL AND RUNNING 200 TREAD-WEAR OR HIGHER TIRES TO BE PLACED IN A POINTS CLASS, or else your car will be placed in exhibition. Please know what class you are running in before arriving to the track to make it easy on yourself. 
* Help the tech inspectors by COMPLETELY FILLING OUT YOUR TECH CARD, and please BRING YOUR OWN PEN! 
* We will be using a Tech Sticker on the windshield of all cars that will declare your class and number. The Tech Sticker will also have check boxes to count how many runs you make through the day. Our staff will check-off a box each time that you make a run before you are sent onto the track in order to make sure people are not cutting in lines/lanes and to do our best to ensure that all drivers are getting the same amount of runs throughout the day. 
* There will be a separate lane for Multi-Driver cars to switch drivers and get another run in while your class lane is up for its turn. Multi-Driver cars will have multiple check box stickers reflecting the amount of drivers sharing that car and the drivers will each have their own number assigned. 
* We are greatly looking forward to the Time Attack points series starting up this Sunday, good luck to everyone and we will see you at the track!
