PROGRAM
Friday, August 1
[Porsche Club Finland training only for PCF members, not part of our event]
Arriving at the hotel "Tervise Paradiis" (Side 14, Pärnu) or hotel "Astra" close to it (Tammsaare 24B, Pärnu). "Tervise Paradiis" is a hotel with spa and water park, so perfect for the companions who don't want to spend the next day at the track. Access to water park, pool (from 6:30) and fitness center is free for every TP guest. Participants staying in Astra have to pay extra to enter waterpark in TP.
19:00 Gathering at Tervise Paradiis parking lot reserved for us. Fitting of compulsory sponsor decals on the cars.
20:00 Parade in Pärnu. Please be very careful while driving in the parade. Show-off and reckless driving is not allowed!

Saturday, August 2
7:30 Breakfast
8:20 Gathering beside Tervise Paradiis
8:40 We drive to the auto24ring
9:00 Arriving at the track. Making of a group photo. Installation of transponders.
After the transponder is installed on your car, drive to the pits, park your car rearward diagonally infront of the garage (as last year) and leave your stuff in the garage designated to you (see Garages.pdf)
Carmus Porsche Service and Oliver Herne Motorsport offer free car service in garages #16 and #17. Please note - this service is only for urgent matters (don't ask for things that you can do before the event, like changing braking fluid etc.)
10:30 Driver meeting.
To minimize the number of passings, there will be fast and slower sessions. Fast session is for the participants who have their personal auto24ring lap record under 1:32 and slower session is for the drivers with their personal record of 1:32+ and for the rookies (until they go under 1:32). Every session lasts 1 hour and has open pitlane. You drive as many laps as you want and come into the pits as many times as you want.
A rookie-sign will be put on the rear bumper of cars which drivers are first time at our event.
Full day of accident-free driving is our ultimate goal!
Every lap is measured digitally and by the end of the day only the best lap of every car will go to the results table. If a car has more than one driver, the drivers should inform the organizer, which time belongs to which driver.
From our event Porsche Racing Club Finland gets the results also for its Time Trial series (information from PRCF).
Please note: the pitlane is accessible only with wristbands given by the organizer.
11:00 Fast session (laptime up to 1:31,999)
12:00 Slower session (laptime 1:32,000+)
13:00 Fast session
14:00 Slower session

Sunday, August 3
08:00-10:00 Breakfast
10:00 Photoshooting beside Tervise Paradiis of the top 3 drivers with their cars + photo of the best country team of 5 drivers with their cars. Please be serious with it - once a podium car had left before the photoshooting.

RULES FOR PARTICIPATION
* Insurances are not valid on the racetrack.
* The event is for street cars only. Every car must have a valid street car technical inspection and must arrive on its own, not on the trailer.
* Racing slicks are not allowed because many drivers are coming from abroad. Street legal racing tyres like Michelin Pilot Sport Cup and others are allowed.
* Only one set of tyres is allowed to use. It is not allowed to bring along a second set. This trackday is for everyday street cars and we want to keep it that way - it is not professional racing event where you have different tyres for different weather.

CHECKLIST
* Please check your brake discs and change pads if necessary
* Definetely change brake fluid to racing fluid (eg. Motul RBF600,660)
* Fill the engine oil to the maximum and have a 1L spare oil with you for any case
* Put new tyres if needed. Igor@Kummimees.ee is the right man to ask!
* Make sure you know where the towing eye is
* Don't forget your video- and photocameras!
* Have an umbrella with you
* Have cash in your pocket for food at the track

THE TRACK
In 2012-2013 a
completely new 3.2 km
auto24ring was built
on the grounds of the
old Audruring.

RULES ON THE TRACK
* Maximum 2 persons allowed in the car on the racetrack
* Helmet is mandatory for everyone in the car
* Pit area speed 10 km/h
* No burnouts - immediate ban from the event!
* Passing the slower car: the responsibility of the safe manouvre lies on the faster driver coming from behind.
* The driver of the slower car should keep its normal driving line, but at the same time has the responsibility to let the faster car take over in maximum 1 lap. Otherwise a warning will be given to the slower car driver by the organizers. 2nd warning is a ban from driving.
* Driver who passes the slower car aggressively or dangerously, will get a warning. 2nd warning is a ban from driving.
* Every participant is obliged to report every dangerous situation he sees - safe driving is the first priority of the day.
* If the black flag is shown, the driver must complete the lap and return to the pits.
* If you drive off the track and cannot get back to the tarmac on your own, you have to pay 500 EUR penalty (which goes to charity). This is because we don't like participants taking risks on our fun driving day (this is not professional racing!). Losing control of the car can hurt yourself and/or others, it will have financial consequenses and it will waste other participants' driving time waiting for your car to be removed.
* No cool-down on the race track as others drive at full speed.

DISCLAIMER
Disclaimer will be signed by every driver after the driver meeting. The text is as follows:

Motorsport can be dangerous.

I participate on this track day on my own risk and I bear full responsibility for everything I do and for everyhting I will leave undone. I’m aware that driving a vehicle at high speed is dangerous and I have been given knowledge on how to minimize risks. I admit that the explanations given by organizers do not preclude dangerous situations nor possible damage.

I will use personal safety equipment (helmet, seat belt), will respect track rules and organizers’ signals and orders. I will do anything to avoid accidents and in the case the accident is not avoidable, I will do anything to minimize the damage.

I’m aware that insurance companies do not compensate damages happened on a racetrack.

I assure with my signature, that I act on my free will, being aware of all threats and I will not press charges on organizers.

If I’m not ready to follow the orders given by organizers, I have always the possibilty and responsibility to withdraw from the participation of the event.

I will also bear full responsibilty for the transponder installed on my car. In the case I lose or ruin the device, I will compensate it’s value of 300 EUR.

PARKING
This is not about where to park, but how to park. Please always park so that the car front will be towards the people walking by. This tip we got from Porsche Club Finland many years ago and this is really a simple way to get good photos where all the cars are always lined the same way. Thank you in advance for helping us with this small favour!

TYRE SERVICE

CAR WASH

PREVIOUS EVENTS
Results and reviews of 2013   2011   2010   2009   (There was no track day in 2012 due to the new track construction work)
The event was started as a Porsche Track Day in 2007. Between 2009-2013 a few other high end cars were allowed to participate, too, but the interest never increased from non-Porsche drivers and from 2014 the event is again for Porsches only.
