We have some new information:
The Great Pacific NW mini-micro car show is drawing very-very near!,
now only 20 days away on Saturday July 28th! Way less than a month,
I wanted to remind all attendees to state your name(s) at the gate
as you enter the track. The person working the ticket booth has a
minicar-microcar attendee master list, if your name is on the list,
you're in! If your name is NOT on the list then it is up to the
discression of that ticket person to charge the 10$ per person
admission fee or not. I would like to think any mini-microcar
attendee will be allowed in for free, but cannot guarantee it. The
track is being rented to the Oregon Motorcycle Racing Association
for track racing events all day on July 28th . They are most
gracious for letting us use the greenspace west of the paddock
outside the track for no charge.
The minicars and microcars will be congregating on the grassy area
near the back (West of the paddock area, outside the track) under
the shade trees. Look for lots of small cars. Volunteers will be
directing cars to park.
Concessions are available across the Bridgestone Tire skybridge in
the track infield.
The optional after meet drive will be about 5-7 miles each way from
PIR to Cathedral Park under the historic St. Johns bridge on the
East bank of the Willamette river right under the Historic bridge on
N. Pittsburg Ave. on the South side of the park. We will meet up
with a bunch of type III's VW's for a BBQ. about 3.30 pm. The VW's
will be congregating for Sunday's annual PIR "Bug-in" event.
A few have asked about hotels and camping. Hotels and motels near
the track are abundant! I have checked pricing on the brand new pet
friendly Motel 6. Plenty of rooms are available and rates vary from
57-69 $. This is the probably the cheapest place to stay and is very
close to PIR, ¾ to 1 mile away, within walking distance. Here is the
There is no camping @ the track, nor would you really want to,
since late night drag racing on July 28th ends @ 1 am. There are two
RV parks close by.
Jantzen Beach RV Park
1503 N Hayden Island Dr, Portland, OR (1.20 miles away)
Columbia River RV Park
10649 NE 13th Ave, Portland, OR (2.13 miles away)
