Lack of PIR trackdays??

Whatís up with the lack of track days at PIR this year motor Corso has three, 2fast has zero scheduled? Am i missing something? Portland is so convient for me, its hard for me to add several hours drive time to and from other tracks.

OPRT is running Friday before every OMRRA round. If OMRRA runs the chicane, they do too (unless you're in the fast group). It's mostly racers getting in extra practice, especially in the intermediate/advanced groups. Advanced is supposed to be 1:18 or faster, so don't sign up for that unless you can hang with the big boys.

1:15 or faster*

Other than that the rest is correct.

PIR has been a struggle for a decade. There aren't enough riders to support it, hence PSSR closed and no one else stepped in to fill the days. If people want PIR to thrive, they gotta get more riders to come to the track.

Lack of Track Days

Noise was the big factor for Monday's at PIR.
As to getting more participation, the track days are getting very very expensive.
I heard $225 for MotoCorsa if you pay in advance this year. Not sure what Optimum is $199.

Factor in fuel, tires, oil and you are pushing $400 on the low side.
