After a lot of hard work, the PDX gang has got two dates picked out for us to do PDX! So let everyone know to get on their calendar July 17 (Wednesday afternoon) and August 15th (Thursday afternoon) DMVR and the Iowa Speedway will be holding a Performance Driving Experience on their road course.

Here is your chance to hlep us grow, tell all your friends and family- this is an entry level event with instructors that gives a person with their own sport car an opportunity to learn how to drive fast around the speedway!

More to follow, first thing- get this date on your time off schedule! We will need volunteers, instructors, corner workers, help on timing, and drivers!

These events are extremely popular and well attended in St. Louis, Chicago, and Brainard, MN.

More to follow, get it on your calendar now!!!

Des Moines Valley Region of SCCA in conjunction with the Iowa Speedway in Newton are offering brand new Performance Driving Experience events on the Iowa Speedway’s oval/ road course for drivers who long to go fast! Join us on the afternoon of July 17th and August 15th for instructional classes and track time!
Performance Driving Experience (PDX): 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. (we have a limited supply of loaner helmets if you don’t have one).
You provide the car, and we provide:
* In classroom instruction
* In your car instruction w/ experienced race instructors/drivers
* On track experience with you behind the wheel in your car- going around the banked track and road course turns!
Upon competition, you receive a certification of completion, a photo in the winner’s circle (weather permitting), and additional opportunities to participate in other speed events! Bring some friends to join you!
Only those who sign up get to cross the finish line with the checkered flag flying!

Our members fill positions as corner workers, grid workers, paddock, tech, starter/flagger, timing and scoring, registration, Pace Car, and more! Some work locally only such as at Newton’s Iowa Speedway, others travel to other events SCCA puts on, too like road course tracks in Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Missouri, Minnesota, and more. Newcomers are welcome!!! You will get one on one training!

If you like getting us close to the excitement, and you like racing, this is a lot of fun! Contact Brian Dupey, our Director of Volunteers, and he can help you get trained for a lifetime of close up fun and excitement in the racing hobby!

Just to help folks get psyched up for this...

I found the Speed coverage of the 2007 Grand Am race that was held on the Iowa Speedway road course. There's a pro in-car demo lap at 7:25.

And here's some in-car from our May Club Race there:

We'll be running the same course as fast as you're safely able, but without the door-to-door competition.
