Greetings PCA Zone 4 Members,

As I have been logging many miles visiting a number of regions, I continue to be impressed everywhere I travel throughout the zone. In the past few weeks I have travelled extensively. I was invited to Tire Rack's exceptional facility located in the Michiana region. After a full day, a few of the region officers took me to an authentic Austrian restaurant for dinner complete with lederhosen and schnitzel. I attended Allegheny region's biggest event of the year: The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, which is one of only two vintage races that occur on public streets in the world, the other being in Monaco. It is a multi-day event that included a kick-off party for visitors from out of town, an international car show, catered meals and some great prizes. Sunday's beautiful weather brought out record attendance with nearly 150 Porsches in the corral.

I travelled to Indianapolis for the 2nd Porscheplatz in our zone, which was being held in conjunction with the Brickyard Grand Prix. PCA members from several regions were treated to a day full of exciting races in a beautiful hospitality suite at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, featuring a discussion with the Porsche Factory and Team Falken drivers moderated by Fox Sports' Bob Varsha. In addition, attendees were provided a delicious catered lunch courtesy of Tom Wood Porsche whom I would like to thank for their generous contribution. The Porsche car corral contained a nice variety of models.

I also attended the Zone 4 Car Corral at the Concours d'Elegance of America at St. John's. This is one of the country's best concours events featuring a world class exhibition of classic, rare, and magnificent automobiles. It was great to have the opportunity to hold our own Zone 4 concours on the site of such a prestigious event. A great deal of hard work goes into making these events the successes they are, and to all of the volunteers I want you to know that your efforts are not going unnoticed. One of the goals I set out at the Presidents' Meeting in March was to have Zone 4 regions begin to join forces and work together cohesively in order to provide even more opportunities for everyone to be able to enjoy our favorite cars. The hospitality and camaraderie displayed at these events confirms that we are on the right track. As I attend each event, it has been very rewarding to meet members from a variety of regions from throughout the zone.

As we continue to enjoy our very busy driving season, there are a number of wonderful events being offered throughout the Zone. Please remember to check your region newsletters, websites, and emails as well as the Zone 4 website for the most up to date list of events available to you. I hope you will expand your horizons and travel to some of the outstanding events being held throughout Zone 4.

Please consider attending other regions' events. See the Event Calendar below.

I look forward to having the opportunity of meeting each and every one of you at these upcoming events. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at: MSoriano.ZoneRep@gmail.com

Thanks,
Michael
