Please note: If the class fills, there will be a waiting list for another class offered later in the year.
Autocross #2 and #3 will be held the same day (Sunday, May 5, 2019 in the South Paddock of Portland International Raceway), featured as a doubleheader. We were unable to secure a date in April due to other conflicting events at PIR. The good news is, if you sign up for autocross #2, you will get a 50% discount on AX#3, the same afternoon. Additionally, a catered lunch will be provided to all participants registered for the full day's activities.
See the section "Access to the South Paddock" below for directions to this area.
Event Fees: For ORPCA/PCA members the cost is $40.00 for AX#2. For non-members the cost is $45.00. (If you sign up for AX#2 and AX#3, the total cost is $60 for members and $70 for non-members.)
Registration: Autocross team has selected Motorsportsreg.com for the registration tool this year. Click here to register. Note: Participation is limited to 60 drivers.
All drivers must go to Onsite Check-in at the time of arrival at the paddock for car number verification, run group and work assignment. Onsite Check-in opens at 7:30am. Instructors and loaner helmets are available for new drivers.
Once you have checked in and the course is complete, you can walk the course. The course is open for walking when the design committee releases it; generally around 8:00am.
At 8:45am there is a mandatory Drivers meeting and the first car runs at 9:00am.
The Rules & Regulations page with updated information on car classing and regulation changes can be viewed here: Autocross Rules and Regulations.

The 2019 Arrive and Drives start on Saturday May 11, and then every second Saturday of each month until October (except July, when it's the first Saturday because of the Rose Cup/Pirelli World Challenge the following weekend and there is not one in August because of the Summer Picnic). Enjoy some of the best driving roads in the five-county area. Each drive is roughly 60 to 100 miles in length and finishes in under three hours (unless otherwise noted). You have an option to join the group for lunch. These are a great way to kick off the weekend and a fun way for new members to get acquainted with ORPCA.
To attend, bring your favorite Porsche (with plenty of fuel) and ideally, a navigator, to our start location (to be announced here soon) no later than 8:45am. Drivers' meeting takes place at 9:00am. With an average of 40 to 50 cars, we often try to break into smaller groups rather than doing one long convoy. The first group of cars will depart at around 9:15am.
THIS IS A NO FEE EVENT

NOTES: Important information about liability waivers
Porsche Club of America has an insurance program that covers both the club and the participants for events such as this one. In order for this coverage to be in force all participants, drivers and passengers must sign the Release and Waiver of Liability form that will be available at the event. For those who bring a minor/or minors (younger than 18 years old) in the vehicle with you, a different waiver is required. The form, WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT FOR MINORS AS OBSERVERS will also be available at the event. This form requires the signature of a parent or guardian, as well as the participant.
The Waiver Form for Minors as Observers may be signed by the parents/guardians away from the actual event site and presented to an ORPCA official at the event, however the participant MUST sign it in front of an event official. Go to: Minor Waiver Form - Observers and print this out in color as there are highlights in red. Have the parents/Guardians sign it before coming to the event.View event details »
