Cascade Sports Car Club to Provide Driver Training and High Performance Driver’s Education For Oregon PCA in 2018


Cascade Sports Car Club will provide Drivers Training and the High Performance Driver’s Education (HPDE) for 2018.  We think you will find it accessible, with a number of choices for training this year. We are working with them to set up how you can join thier training days. More information on this has it gets closer.

Here is how Cascade Sports Car Club explains their program:
“These track days give you the opportunity to drive on a real racetrack. Whether your car is a daily driver or a fully prepared race car and you’re a first time novice student wanting to become a better driver, or a seasoned race driver looking for some seat time to shake down your car before a race, we’ve got you covered. The program begins with a 3 hour “ground school” where you’ll have professional instruction in the dynamics of cars and car control. You’ll learn about contact patch, weight transfer, and all of the physics of a car in motion that keep you in control. If that’s not enough, it’s fun! The next day we’ll meet at the racetrack to put that knowledge to use with our expert staff of in-car instructors. You’ll learn at your own pace and gradually work your way up to more challenging speeds.
Are you interested in taking your driving to the next level and getting your racing license? You’ve come to the right place. We’re a fully sanctioned ICSCC driving school. When you’ve completed our program you’ll be cleared to enter in a novice race category. After you’ve done your mandatory novice races you’ll be fully licensed and on the road to glory!”

HPDE is an opportunity to enjoy your car in the safe, controlled environment of a race track.  You will improve your car skills in areas such as looking further ahead, awareness, car control in a skid, proper line on the track, threshold braking, to name a few. You will drive your car at a higher level all the while grinning from ear to ear.  You will find it challenging, fun and rewarding.

A race track is the safest place to drive a car.  Everyone is driving in the same direction.  Everyone has a single purpose and is focused on their driving.  There are corner workers that control the track and maintain a safe environment for everyone.   Drivers are divided up by skill level and into separate run groups:  Novice, Advanced School, and HPDE.
