Chicago Region PDX Event#1 5/26

I just registered for the half day PDX on Autobahn North for Friday the 26th.

2:30 - Registration
4:00 - Drivers Meeting
5:00 - Cars on track

three 20 min sessions weather and sun permitting

$145 for SCCA Members $160 for non-members.

https://www.motorsportreg.com/events...lub-pdx-389471

It was an expensive trip to MSR... I registered for the TSSCC (rt66), CR AutoX (rt66), and the CR PDX for the next two weeks.

Going to do an oil change tomorrow, flip my tires, and try and burn off the rest of this set by July. I already have 50 runs this year!

I hope everyone had a blast in rantoul this weekend. My last two weeks were crazy and couldn't make it down there this weekend. See you kids soon!

So wrapping up around 8, puts me home at 10? Tempting, but that would be a very long day with work in the morning. Anyone else from down here going?

Just take the day off. Duh.

I'm going to be there (assuming the car is still running by then).

I have never done the North course at Autobahn. Tempting but I am sure I will still be too busy with planting though.

I'm planning to go to the full course on the 9th. Not sure if I will do the MG or the 350Z. The Z needs some parts but the MG on a big track is intimidating so we will see. But planning to register soon.

I did the south course twice last year, and am planning to do the full course on the 9th too. I wanted to drive them both separately before running them combined.

I did a AMG PDX on North. It's... short. But the back straight is long enough to get into trouble (120+ into a 90deg left) and much of turns 3-6 is blind or off camber. Very technical.

I was watching some videos last night and it looks pretty technical with a TON of late apex corners (just about all of them) and a pretty cool three turn sweeper onto a straight. I was a few ticks over 100mph on the south course, I am curious what my top speed will be on the north. The video I was watching was a guy in a 335 and he was hitting 120.
