Countdown to the start of Driver Education 2017!

This article was originally published in the PCA PNWR Spiel, March 2017.


I’m calling every one of you that love your P-cars to come out to learn and play at the race track with the Driver Education team this year.   That’s everyone who’s reading this, right?

Now that the holidays are past, I am dreaming of the track and every passing day counts down to the 2017 Driver Education season.   I can’t wait to get to the track where I am one with my car and see all the wonderful friends I have made from our track days.  This is the 3rd year that I’ve been the DE Chair and I am so proud of the great program and world class instructors we have at our club.

This will be an experience that you will never forget.  It is the most fun, exhilarating, exciting, rewarding and safe experience that will remind you of why you have the car you have!  If you have always thought about bringing your car to the track, I urge you to join us.

This year in addition to track days at Pacific Raceways and The Ridge Motorsports Park, we have two unique events.  The first is a “women’s only” day at Pacific Raceways and the second is a two-day weekend event in central Oregon at Oregon Raceway Park.    This is a very special track and everyone who drives here raves about the experience.   Also, we have special hotel rates for the weekend to make it nothing short of spectacular.

Our season schedule is below:

Saturday, April 8th Pacific Raceways

Saturday, May 13th, The Ridge Motorsports Park 

Friday, June 9th Pacific Raceways WOMEN ONLY

Saturday-Sunday, June 24, 25th Oregon Raceway Park 2 day, Sat only, Sun only 

Friday, July 28th The Ridge Motorsports Park

Friday, September 22th Pacific Raceways

Registration is now open for our first event on April 8, the Women’s day and the ORP weekend.

For the die hard track junkies who have been circling the wagons to sign up, I can’t wait to see you again.

For those of you who haven’t been to our Driver Education days and have been curious about the track, join us!  I can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to our program and I promise it will be one the best and most memorable days of your life.

Should you have any questions and want to reach out I urge you to contact me at

See you at the track!
