October 17-18 Oversteer DE @ HPR

———–October 17-18, 2020————

Saturday: Full Course / Sunday: West Course

Join us for the October Oversteer DE, the final DE of the 2020 season with an exciting twist to wrap up the year!  On Saturday we will run the normal High Plains Raceway Full course, but on Sunday we will run (for RMR’s first time ever) the West course!  Despite being shorter the West course will provide a new challenge to seasoned and newer drivers.  The West course removes turns 9ab, 10, 11 and 12 taking drivers on a unique corkscrew from top of turn 8 directly into turns 13-15.   We will hold a track walk on Saturday night covering the West course.

COVID-19 NOTES: Due to COVID-19 restrictions this event will be limited to drivers who have earned a Solo designation for PCA DE events.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept new drivers who require an instructor in the car with them.  We hope to be able to return to having a novice instructed group in 2021.   If you are an interested novice driver this is still a GREAT opportunity to come out and volunteer, see how the DE events work, see some awesome Porsches, and observe the event.  

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We need volunteers for the positions of GRID and TECH AT THE TRACK to help run this event.  Please help!  Even if you are not driving volunteering is a great way to be involved in the action, learn more, and help the club. Volunteers earn credits to use towards the cost of future events!

CHARITY FOR THIS EVENT: COLORADO MISSION OF MERCY (COMOM): COMOM is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to provide quality dental services, at no cost, to individuals of all ages who cannot afford and access dental care; eliminating dental pain, promoting oral health, creating smiles, and providing oral health education.  Every year COMOM holds a two-day dental clinic in a large facility in different locations around the state of Colorado as an open door clinic to the community.   Dental services are provided to any person on a “no questions asked” basis. Patients are evaluated and treated based on their most urgent dental needs. Patients undergo dental treatments such as cleanings, fillings, root canals, and extractions.  The best part about COMOM is that this quality treatment is provided at no cost to patients, and it is staffed by an all-volunteer force of dentists, dental hygienists, dental laboratory technicians, dental assistants, and community volunteers who donate their time, materials, and expertise.   Since its inception in 2007, COMOM has served 15,000 patients and provided $13,000,000 in donated dental care.  More information at www.comom.org

Dear members,

COVID-19, the novel corona virus, has become the forefront of immediate health concerns.  The RMR Board has been following and discussing these issues on a frequent basis.  We understand that members have concerns. In all things we do, we consider first and foremost the health and safety of our members, volunteers, and sponsors.  As we begin to host events again, we ask that everyone follow the guidelines below to help keep themselves and fellow members safe.

Social distancing is key when gathering for the event.  Please maintain a distance of 6 feet from friends and staff whenever possible.
Face coverings are most essential in times when social distancing is difficult.  Face coverings are meant to protect those around you in case you are unknowingly infected.  We are requiring that masks be worn at all times unless maintaining at least six feet of distance, or when eating, drinking or driving.
Avoid handshakes, fist bumps, and other forms of physical contact.  When appropriate, use hand sanitizer or wash your hands and avoid touching your face.
Following these guidelines will help to lower the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19, and will facilitate our ability to host more events in the future.

By and for the Board of the Rocky Mountain Region, Porsche Club of America, Inc.
