Greetings Zone 4 Members,

  It has been a very busy summer for us here in Zone 4, and all of our regions’ social calendars are at full speed.  OVR’s Top Gun Challenge returned to Putnam Park Road Course this year. During the weekend, they ran 4 Sprint races and an Enduro race.  They also held a 3-day advanced HPDE in conjunction with the club race.

The next weekend I attended ARPCA’s premiere event, the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at Schenley Park, 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 began with a kick-off party for visitors from out of town.  In addition to the vintage races, there is an international car show, catered meals, and some great prizes.  The highlight of the weekend, however, was the fact that after a great deal of hard work and determination, the organizers were able to reach an agreement with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to be able to display Janis Joplin’s 356, which has only left the museum a few times.
The following weekend, I attended P20.  For the 4th year in a row, the event was held in Granville, Ohio, just east of Columbus.  With the cooperation from the City of Granville, Broadway Street, the city’s main thoroughfare, was transformed into the perfect setting for the nearly 350 Porsches that lined the street.  Graham Rahal’s viper green 918 arrived at the dealership 2 days before the event, and he allowed it to be the focal point on Marilyn’s Row, giving everyone attending P20 the chance to view his car even before he was able to.
On Sunday, I attended the 2nd Annual Zone 4 Car Corral at the Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s in Plymouth, MI.  The Concours d’Elegance of America is widely regarded as one of the country’s best concours events featuring a world class exhibition of classic, rare, and exotic automobiles.  Once again, the Porsche Car Corral was the largest and most well attended corral at this event.

A great deal of hard work goes into making these events the successes that 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 when I first became Zone Representative was to have Zone 4 regions work together in order to provide even more opportunities for our members, and I was very pleased to see that each of these activities attracted participation from members from regions throughout the zone.  The hospitality and camaraderie displayed at these events confirms that we are on the right track.

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’s website and newsletter, 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.  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:
