Be a part of the Portland SpeedTour to be held at Portland International Raceway over the July 22-23 weekend. The event includes SVRA (Sportscar Vintage Racing Assn.) vintage races and Trans Am series races. Full access to the paddock area and garages is given to SpeedTour spectators. You will be able to see all of the vehicles up close and be part of the excitement. There is also a SVRA car show open to all classic, vintage, exotic, collectible cars and vintage motorcycles of interest. The car watching/gawking/BSing is unparalleled.
Mt. Hood Miata Club’s participating members will be included in the car show, parking in the Club’s area corral among all the other marques represented there. The track will be within easy strolling distance, and the pits will be close by. Club members can also take part in the popular "Last Lap" tour around the track in their show car.
(The PIR event actually runs from Friday morning until late Sunday, but Mt. Hood Miata Club’s event will only encompass Saturday and Sunday.)

I love these events and have attended them for several years. Things to seriously consider bringing –
- Folding chairs
- Sunscreen and/or sun-resistant clothing
- Lunch (there are food purveyors at PIR). If we have enough interest, the club may sponsor a potluck.
For Club members and guests with who are into early starts, anyone who’s interested is warmly invited to join others who are similarly afflicted for a 7:00 (that’s AM!) breakfast at Shari’s, located near PIR at 9730 N Whitaker Rd, Portland, OR 97217.
