2017 Club Trials Results & Points


Time Trial events with the SCCA are divided up into 4 different programs. Performance Driving Experience (PDX), Time Trials, Track Trials, and Hill Climbs. The Time Trials program is designed to accommodate all types of cars.

PDX

The PDX program provides an instructional environment for drivers who simply want to improve their driving skills and increase their enjoyment of driving their street vehicle. True to the “run what ya brung” adage, all it takes to be a part is your street car, a valid license and a helmet.

PDX events are about you, the driver. Plenty of seat time, plenty of individual instruction and a ton of driving exercises make up a PDX; all of which is designed to educate you and make you more confident behind the wheel, both on the track and on the street.

Participants receive a solid blend of driving instruction, ranging from the classroom to in-car training to “follow me” drills. A wide range of topics are discussed and shown at a PDX, including: following a “racing line”, passing zones, speed limits and other general driving techniques. Of course, each driver receives feedback from his or her instructor at the end of each lesson.

PDX events are non-competition based. Why?

Because the focus is on you. Three other levels of the Time Trials program provide competition, but it’s important that the skills taught at a PDX are learned beforehand so you as a driver can enjoy the latter levels of the program the way they were intended.

Time Trials

When you’re ready to race against the clock, Time Trials is ready for you. The second level of the program, Time Trials builds on the instruction you received in the PDX while allowing drivers their first chance at competing against time. Competition classes are formed (with both street and fully-prepared race cars), and winners are decided by fastest time around the course.

Track Trials

Street cars no longer cut it at Track Trials. Only cars prepared for Road Racing or Solo events are allowed as speeds and intensity levels are higher. The tier-three program offers closed-course track time, with competitions again decided by fastest time around the course.

Hill Climbs

Full safety gear is mandatory as it’s just you, your car and a mountain road. Hill Climb events are run on paved mountain roads over short distances, and in the true spirit of racing, fast time wins.

P1100619Do you and your car qualify for a Track Day PDX event?

You must be at least 18 years of age with a valid driver license. Convertibles, unless they are equipped with a hard top or an approved roll bar/hoop, are not allowed, See exceptions. Cars with other removable tops like, t-tops, and targa tops must meet appropriate safety regulations. The following convertibles are approved. MINI Cooper Convertibles, 2002 Porsche Boxster, and the Honda S2000 have been approved by the manufacturer as having factory rollover protection.

Should I do anything before I arrive at a track day PDX?

Tech Inspection Form If you are not sure your car is ready for the use on a racetrack, we suggest you take your vehicle to a technician who is skilled enough to evaluate your vehicle for track use. This is important! Your safety and other around you depend on your car being properly prepared. Items like brake pads, brake fluid, and cooling systems should be in perfect condition. You should also familiarize yourself with “flags” that are used at tracks.
