Attention Drivers:

The Tri-Region Race Group is hosting an SCCA Performance Driving Experience (PDE) on the Friday and Saturday, June 17 and 18, 2005 at Pocono International Raceway. Registration is now open, please read carefully, and follow every instruction. All of your questions about the SCCA portion of the event should be answered by reading it.

This is to enter the SCCA track event only, spectators and general ZGCA meet attendees do not need to register:

For additional information:

We'll be posting info on the ZGCA meet soon, but it is important to register NOW if you want to get a spot for the on track action. They will be accepting entries by electronic notification, but you'll also need to download the forms, READ them WELL, then submit an entry with your check.
I say this because out of the 3 groups, I believe the Novice group will sell out quickly. For optimal track time they limiting the total entries to 100 cars each day, and the number of Novice drivers to 25 each day. We will run a Novice and two other run groups, the number of car per run group will be based on the experience of the entries. All drivers can expect at least 2 hours of track time each day. As usual you can find the most up to date information on this huge two day long Z and G meet by visiting

I know the registration process seems archaic, but it is this way because the track and all of the support services are all paid for in advance with REAL money.

There will be no cost to gain entry to the ZGCA car corral area, just a $20 fee if you are coming to the friday night pig roast. Of course you can opt out of the pig roast and bring your own coolers full of grub.
Camping is free for Friday night, and it is a bring your own beer event, with absolutely no alcohol consumption allowed until the on-track activities are done for the day.

Of course, pig roast and refreshments for Friday night are included with your paid registration for a track day, whether it is Friday or Saturday that you signed up for SCCA/Tri-Region
Performance Driving Experience

The Event

We will be using the Club Race Course (2.5 miles) both days. This is the same course used for the last two SCCA National Races. It is 2.5 mile road course, clockwise, with the natural bus stop chicane on the Longpond strait. This gives you a challenging infield road course with the Devils Bend, two high speed strait-a-ways, a bus stop chicane, with a second gear exit and one high banked turn. The two advanced run groups can expect more than two hours of track time.

Entry Fees

By April 30 After May 1
One Day $225.00 $250.00
Two Day $425.00 $450.00

Only pre-paid entries will be accepted. All spots assigned in order of payment received. When all spots are sold out, a waiting list will be started in the order additional entry payments are received. No payments will be accepted at the track. We suggest you register early because we are expecting the event to be sold out by May 1st.

Entry fee includes a Pig Roast party on Friday evening, all drivers and workers will get tickets and tickets will be on sale for guests at $20.00 each.

Overnight camping will be available at the track Friday night. Cars participating in the Corrals will not be charged an entry fee and can buy tickets for the Pig Roast. Also, see lodging list for local hotels/motels.
