Portland Internation Raceway, is a road course, a drag strip and they have room for an Autocross. They have autocross events there but not sure if its usually clubs that hold them or if its the track. They also have a motorcross area.

I'm new to all of this, how do I go about making sure my car can participate in these events? What are the vehicle requirements to run an autox or a road course?

Update! We are working through some issues, mostly insurance for the event, it is extremely expensive, but we will get there. If all goes well, we will have not one, but TWO El Toro events this year. More soon, I promise.

As far as car goes, we will have a tech team to be sure the car has good linkage for throttle, good brake pedal, battery strapped down, nothing loose in car or trunk, all lug nuts, no floor mats, just standard stuff. Must wear helmet, must have at least a lap belt, even though I prefer a 5 point. This is Protouring, not race cars and I don't think most street cars are going to have a cage. I will be sure the track is slowed down so speeds will not be crazy. My thoughts are we build street cars we can race, not race cars with tags. I will also allow new camaros, mustangs, vettes to participate so if your pt car is not finished, get out that DD and come have fun.

OK, this is not a formal announcement guys, but.........



Mark the weekend of April 2-4 on your calendar and start saving your change, you will probably need about $125 that weekend.



Vendors reading this, mark your calendars also, we need your support. I will be sending out info to all those that have already inquired about a spot as soon as I have conformation back from the city.





If you have extra coins, you may want to save them for Labor Day weekend also.....
