Pacific Raceways

Click button to see larger view of track layout.

Pacific Raceways Road Course is a SCCA and NASCAR certified, 10 turn (9 turns with a "kink" on the straightaway), 2.25 mile course.

 

There is a total elevation change of 125 feet, of which 100 feet occurs in 1/2 mile.  The road course winds through natural wooded terrain, making it one of the most unique and challenging courses in the United States.

 

2005: Our road course users have made clear that Turn Nine was their greatest concern. We are pleased to announce that Turn Nine has been completely rebuilt, with a new radius, a relaxed apex, better drainage, and all new pavement. This project also includes a catch fence protecting the corner of Grandstand A. Visibility has been greatly increased for the racer, which should heighten everyone’s enjoyment as cars speed through this turn.

 

In 2002 the hot pit lane was moved past the mid point of the straightaway (adjacent to Grid) and the track moved right to that point adding  turn 10 going back onto the original straightaway.

 

In June, 1997, new pavement was installed in the area between the exit of turn 2 and the exit of turn 7.

Turns 3 and 3A were repaved again in 1998.

There are gas stations, fast food establishments and a shopping center north of the track  in Covington. There are several hotels nearby in Auburn, Kent, and Renton.

 

There is NO place to dump oil, antifreeze, or tires at the track, so

TAKE THIS STUFF WITH YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE!

on any AM radio. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES move any PA system speaker!
