Default PCA Nord Stern Region DE/DT this weekend

So this will be my first Drivers Training/Drivers Education eventh with the PCA. It is being held this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I am all set with the tech inspection done on my 964, new rear brake pads, new helmet, and a hotel room already booked. The event is being held at Brainerd International Raceeway in Brainerd, MN. It is about a 5 hour drive from my house, but promissess to be worth every bit of the trip. One must not forget that the trip in iteself is the destination. Esecially while driving a 964.

Has anyone tracked their 964s in a PCA Drivers Education event or have they participated in a PCA High Speed Driving Drivers Training Event?

I'm interested in any feedback I can get. Are there any special mods which need to be done to the car in preparation for track time? Attached is a picture of my pretty little 964 with her new clothes on (in the form of magnetic numbers) I keep her in the shed as that is where she feels most at home. She is not pretentious like my BMW that demands a garage space.

I've done lots of spirited parade laps at BIR. You are in for a ton of fun!

Safety first.

I do about 10 or so of these per year. The trick is to take it slow at the beginning, maybe even skip a session because at the end, people run out of pads, tires or energy and you're all alone out there for the last couple of sessions at the end of the event (That means nobody holding you up or distracting you.)

The only real recommendation I have are tire pressures. Measure them at the end of every session. I try to keep them at 36 psi hot but you might start a little higher initially.

Enjoy!
