Neil, any chance I could maybe borrow a harness from you for it? I'd ask for the camera again, but its East track, the same as before.
Might ask for the camera on Sat Sept 9th when I run with the SCCA PDX group on Full track.

Open track, on Sept 5th (east track) and Oct 10th (west track), thru Miller. Cost is $100 for orientation (TORDE) which will get you one full session in the morning (20+ min), then $175 for afternoon (3 sessions, 20+ min each). After you've done TORDE, you can opt for full day at $275 (5 sessions) or afternoon half day at $175 (3 sessions). Register at <a href="http://millermotorsportspark.com/openTrackDays.cfm">Miller</a>
SCCA PDX, is their Performance Driving Experience. Available Sept 8th and 9th on the full track. The 8th is more geared towards beginners and the 9th more geared towards intermediate/experts (basically passing zones and instructors available). Cost is $125 for SCCA members, $150 for non, per day. There should be 4 20 minute sessions each day. Go <a href="http://forums.utahscca.com/viewtopic.php?t=3040">here</a> to register.
They will also be doing a PDX in October on the 7th and 8th. Configuration is likely to be the outer track (what AMA Superbikes ran). Pricing unknown at this point, but either $100 or $125 for members given past events.
All you need is a car in good working order and a helmet (Snell M-95 or SA-95 or better, open or full face). And a healthy willingness to learn. Also check your ego at the door, chances are you won't be the fastest out there, so just expect to get passed.
And most of all, have fun.

I believe there are instructors on the 8th though.

and you are right. It is the 8th I am instructing, but I also have the option to drive on the 9th.

Don't know if I can make it. Yes, Mark, I'm still kickin' around. Bigger turbos now, though.
