Drivers Education

Is it true I have to look out the driver’s side window to see where I’m going while driving the banking at Daytona International Speedway? Is it true my car will slide off the banking if I’m going less than 40 mph? Will my modern Porsche’s systems go hay-wire while on the banking and put my car into limp mode? Is it true my car will see a higher top speed than at any other track I’ve driven?

You can find out the answers to these and other Daytona legends you’ve heard over the years by attending the Advanced Solo DE at Daytona International Speedway, held in conjunction with the Zone 12 PCA Club Races on October 21st – 23rd, 2016. The event is not limited to Porsches. Drivers must either be a PCA National Instructor, or, have achieved Advanced Solo status with their home region and have experience with PCA Expanded Passing (with a point by).

There are two registration options. The 2 day registration option is $450.00 and the 3 day option is $500.00. A check of Daytona events, sponsored by other HPDE organizations and clubs makes this is a real bargain. Zone 12’s event is anywhere from $100.00 to several hundred dollars lower than those organizations’ events and theirs are 2 day events!

You’ll have the opportunity to attend the racers’ “chalk talk” given by Cory Friedman of Autometrics on Thursday evening, as an initial exposure to driving Daytona (highly recommended, even if you’ve driven Daytona before). There may also be a “track walk” orientation that same evening (tbd).

We recommend that cars be equipped with DOT “R” rated tires. At a minimum you must have tires rated at speeds of 149 or higher (V, W, Y, or Z). Tires must be new or nearly new. We recommend that your car have a 5 point harness and a roll cage/bar and we further recommend the use of a HANS device. Helmet must be at least a Snell SA 2005, or newer. Boxsters and other late model Porsche convertibles (996/997/981/991) may participate with tops up. Cars must have a technical inspection at an approved shop. We also recommend PCA endorsed track insurance (available at www.pcahpdeins.locktonaffinity.com).

Registration will be on ClubRegistration.net where additional event information is available including lodging, event options and fees. Be sure to search for Zone 12 events. Registration is open now. Please be sure your driving credentials are updated in your Profile on CR.net. Your credentials WILL BE VERIFIED, prior to your registration being confirmed.

Co-drivers are permitted, assuming both drivers meet event credential requirements. Both drivers must separately register for the event on ClubRegistration.net. Please send an e mail to the Event Chair, stating your pairing intention.

We must limit registration to the first 65 so don’t wait to register and possibly miss the opportunity to find out which Daytona rumors are true and which are urban legends.

Please Note: New for the garage option this year on ClubRegistration.net is the ability to choose your garage location. Follow the on-screen instructions during the registration process. Once you have reserved and paid for your garage, you are guaranteed a garage. However, Event Management reserves the right to reassign you to a different garage as/when circumstances dictate.

Questions? Please contact Event Chair, Jim Burnett at 575-336-1198 during July, August or September and at 904-247-9204 during October. You can also reach Jim at 111margaret@att.net.
