The April 6th date is a week before our event, so if you have any changes you've wanted to make to your car, this would make an excellent test & tune! The event I did with them in the past, they did morning runs and afternoon runs, which gives you time to adjust and try new things if you want. I don't know if that's how they intend to run this one or not, but hey.... seat time is seat time, and seat time is the best mod you can make to your car.

So for those of you that like to register at the last minute, I just got this email that said "we are extending registration for SCCA Drivers until TUESDAY of Next week.. JULY 30" for the Aug 3 event.
......That said, "SCCA" is just the name of the class, you don't need a membership. And if you're still on the fence and want to wait later than that, email Sean @ email@example.com and he still might sign you up......but you didn't hear that from me.
Also they plan on doing at least 6 runs, good chance you'll get more than that.
I had a blast at the 8/3 PCA event. It's hard to go wrong at ZMAX and that course was super fast! Kurt's Lotus goes to 66 MPH in 2nd gear and we still had to go to 3rd a couple times. I definitely struggled to time/execute my upshifting/downshifting...not all of us have it down like you do Gregg!
Wish I could have made that one. Gregg, In your video where the camera is behind the right front tire you can see sparks coming from the wheel under braking. That was cool!!! Look around the 4:40 and 6:00 mark. It was at the last left 180.
And maybe they were there, I didn't see any rescue personnel or ambulances in their usual space. I would guess PCA would have to have 'em like we do?

Great event, but like some others had trouble figuring out shift points. I tried leaving it in 3rd for most of the time but was more than a second slower when I did. Good experience though, at those speeds I was way behind the course and needed to be doing everything sooner than I was. I also didn't notice when registering that there was an SCCA class so I ended up in non-Porsche.
Steve, the emergency personnel were hanging out in the shade under the grand stand.
You do not need to be a PCA member or SCCA member to join their events. They are open to any make/model but only have 2 classes for "us," either the "non-Porsche" class or the "SCCA" class (which does not require an SCCA membership, its just named that....).
