        I plan to drive this time whether it's the FRS in the "PDX" or something racey for TT.

          When I see the words "Track Event" I honestly think of a track meet with hurdles
          and the high jump and that sort of stuff.

              It's also called:

              2016 No Frills Time Trial, Time Trial School, and PDX

              ...yes, the PDX is the same as a "Track Day"

              Come on out everyone for the season opener for the South-East Division Time Trial Championship series. If you're not ready for Time Trialing yet, bring out your daily driver and have some fun and get some great instruction under the PDX event.

                  I'm signed up but I'm trying to decide whether or not to run PDX again or do the TT school. I'm looking at the rules at http://www.scca.com/pages/time-trials and I don't see any mention of fire suits. If my memory serves me though I thought they were required. Also I'm assuming that my car would fall in some sort of catch all class too. Can anyone provide a link that might be a bit more informative and/or clarify all that I would need to step up to TT from PDX?

                        And as of this year the physical is no longer required for a full license.

                          I did make note of that from the sediv site. Its a pretty simple short list of items. I guess I'll be placing an order with summit really soon for more safety equipment.

                          Does the fire suit need to be a one piece unit or is the jacket and pants style gear acceptable as well?

                          When it references head and neck restraints does this refer to a neck brace or is a Hans device expected?

                          I sent and email as directed about getting a logbook for my car. Would it be better to go ahead and send in the novice permit application or just wait and do the TT school at the spring TGPR event?

                          By the way, sorry for any stupid questions. I'm in the process of reading through the GCR (little free time on my hands).

                            The drivers suit needs to be a 1 peice style. You can get a 2 or 3 layer suit and not be required to have the Nomex undies. As far as I know the head and neck restraint is not required but is recommended. I use a Hans and Delanie, has a Nextgen, I think. Just sign up for the TT School and get all your gear (gloves, arm restraints, Nomex socks, fire retardant shoes, SA2010 or newer helmet, a balaclava if you have facial hair and a fire extinguisher for the car. You have a race seat and harnesses) When you come out to the event you'll get your logbook and you can fill out your novice permit at the event. Once you complete the school the chief instructor or chief steward can sign off on your permit which will allow you to obtain your tt license.

                              Good summary John. I remember the same dilemma when I started, I started PDX in one car but wanted to move into TT. I didn't want to convert my daily into a race car so I ended up shopping around for one that I could convert. This will most likely lead to maintaining a dedicated race car which all racers need to do anyway; which is what happened to me.
