Record Field For 2018 IRDC Summer Classic

22 July 2018 Kent, WA – Heading into the weekend at Pacific Raceways the IRDC group could say that the 3rd time was the charm. A record number of entries to the race that have not been seen for quite a while filled the grounds with haulers, trailers and motorhomes.

To see 40 plus cars lined up two by two for the start of a race is quite impressive, both in sight and sound. Combine all the classes along with the novice class and you had near 200 trying to qualify on Saturday with group 6 having an even dozen.

You have to think the “nose to tail” and “side by side” racing had to be a blast for the drivers testing their driving skills. No race shop here with spare cars and parts as a lot are one of a kind and crashing it is out of the question.

The IRDC is finished for the 2018 season at Pacific but they have more races at other tracks, go to the IRDC website for the schedule and race results from this race.

Race Car Lapping Day At ProFormance Racing School

18 April 2018 Kent, WA – A non-race pure lapping day at the track in a 100% race car has to be a joy for the driver and crew. With no pressure that is around on a race day the relaxed atmosphere showed everywhere.

This was the first time out this season time for learning a new car all together. Testing all the changes, getting your rear-end learning the new or remembering that feeling of G-forces cornering at speed and the push back in the seat as you floor the gas peddle down the straightaway.

The 25 minute sessions for the two groups seem to go by quickly but to the drivers the extra 10 minutes. (normal race time 15min.) seemed to go on like running two races in one.

All in all it was a great day for the 100% race car lapping program. Also a big shout out to the Briscoe Family who with the Ferrari trailer as a backdrop, provided food and drinks for everyone during the  lunch break.
