Frequently Asked Questions

Dates for Registration of Events

Please note that PDX, Track & Trial events open for on-line registration approx. 5 weeks prior to the event.  The close for registration is the Monday prior to the event at midnight EST.  Late registrations will not be accepted.

Car Numbers

A note from Registration:

We have tried very hard over the past 4 years to assign and supply numbers for our participants, and this year, we have found that the cost of printing, and the time stuffing envelopes has become very prohibitive. Our sister organizations, Club Racing, Rally Cross, and Solo all require participants to select and supply their own numbers.

So, we have taken a page out of their books and are now REQUIRING our participants to select a number in MSR when registering online and provide a legible number on the car. These may be magnetics (provided that they are able to stay on the car at speeds exceeding 75 mph), vinyl, contrasting painters tape (For example, do not use blue tape on a blue or black car, it isn't legible), or printed numbers that will be taped to the car.

Car numbers should be at least 8 inches high and 1 inch wide., the bigger, and the more space makes them more legible to our corner workers. To test, put your numbers on your car and walk back 50 feet. If your numbers are still legible then you are good to go!

If you signed up in MSR prior to our number system being in place, please contact me via email: or phone (weeknights, after 8:00pm, but before 9:30pm) 410-857-4116, and I will be happy to assist you

On-track Insurance

The WDCR PDX Program is proud to announce that our events have been approved by Lockton Affinity/Lockton Motorsports for their HPDE Insurance Program. If you're worried about the financial impact of having an "oops" during an on-track session, check them out. Rates seem to be reasonable. Please note that this is program is solely offered by Lockton, not SCCA or the DC Region.  We do intend to make sure that the rest of our programs are also elegible for their coverage as well. Note also that our understanding is that this coverage is ONLY for the PDX sessions, not the Club Trials/Time Trials session

High Performance Driving Clinics (HPDC) & Street Survival

Many of our Track Days instructors are also Certified Teen Street Survival Instructors, helping to protect your most precious cargo by: Promoting Safe Teen Driving and Teaching Your Teen to Survive From Behind the Wheel

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival is a "hands-on" driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too!

Promotional Materials

We've published two official flyers that may be used to help promote the PDX/Time Trials program. They're located under the "Track Days Resources" section, under Archive >> Promotional Material.
