High Performance Driving Experience at Portland International Raceway (PIR)

This event was run on Aug.12, 2021

We look forward to sharing our events with you - and please know that just as on the track we will focus on safety with regard to COVID-19 - that may mean events look a bit different but the fun on the track remains the same.
CLICK HERE to see the HOD event guidelines employed in the COVID-19 era to assure the safety of all participants. Note that Portland International Raceway may override HOD guidelines.

We will help you navigate all considerations and attempt to clearly communicate rules and regulations leading up to the event.

Join the Hooked On Driving, PacNW team as we return to PIR for another round of fun.

This is a fully coached HPDE event with THREE run groups from Beginner to Advanced. Come out and have a great time sharing the track with like minded enthusiasts.
And we buy your lunch with your driver registration. Should you need a lunch for a non-registered guest, you can purchase an additional lunch at $20 each.
Annual family membership/username in Team HOD is required. Membership can be shared by a household, including offspring up to 25 years of age who are still living at home.

  • - A-Solo is intended for drivers who have completed the A-Novice program and have been signed off for Solo, having several track events under their belt. Coaching is still available and dedicated here but on a ratio of 3 drivers per coach throughout the day.
