Greetings Zone 4 Members,

I am pleased to inform you that in 2015 regions within Zone 4 hosted 3 Club Races, a significant increase from only one the previous year.  Our Zone 4 Club Races attract participants from all over the country driving a wide variety of models.

In July, OVR hosted the Top Gun Challenge at Putnam Park Road Course in Mt. Meridian, IN.  They held 4 Sprint races over 2 days plus a 60-minute Enduro.  There was a dinner Saturday evening where awards from the day’s races were distributed.  In addition, there was a 3-day Advanced HPDE in conjunction with the races.  Southeast Michigan Region hosted Roar by the Shore at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, MI, in August.  The 60-minute Enduro was held on Saturday while the Sprint races were held Sunday, and everyone enjoyed Saturday’s delicious catered dinner.  The weekend also included a full DE with participants receiving a generous amount of time on the track.  The 3rd Club Race in Zone 4 was MORPCA’s Race of Champions at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course held in September.  The 4 Sprint races were held on Saturday and the 90-minute Enduro was Sunday morning.  They also held an Advanced HPDE throughout the weekend.  I have been working closely with regions and Club Racing to add additional races to the schedule.

Now that Porsche has officially announced the release of the GT4 Clubsport race car, I am excited to share with you that I have been one of a few individuals secretly working with Club Racing and Porsche Motorsports for some time now to possibly bring this new and exciting racing series to a world class venue within the zone.  If you have never been to a Club Race, plan to attend one, or better yet, volunteer your time and services.  They really are a lot of fun, and the region would greatly appreciate the assistance.

The last weekend of September Rennsport Reunion V, Legends of LeMans, the world’s premiere official Porsche gathering, was held at Laguna Seca.  It was an amazing event with a record breaking attendance of 57,351.  There were1500 cars registered for the corrals which were separated by model, including around twenty 918s.

For this event, Porsche assembled a spectacular collection of vintage and current racecars from 1955 to the present, Many of these are rarely seen outside of the factory museum or are in private collections, such as Jerry Seinfeld’s #20 Gulf 917.  Included in the collection were the 24hr LeMans winning 919 and the 911RSR that won the previous weekend at COTA.  Chopard sponsored the Heritage Display which showcased 60 of the rarest and most significant racecars.  In addition, 50 legendary and current drivers, engineers, and owners were in attendance and participated in interviews and autograph sessions.  Many historic cars took part in the races held throughout the weekend, and it was incredible to be able to watch several 917s racing a few feet away as we stood just outside the paddock.

The PCA tent hosted several presentations including one by August Achleitner, Porsche’s 911 Product Director, who introduced the new 991.2.  The twin turbocharged car represents the future of all 911s to come.

With the holidays approaching, many regions will celebrate with their PCA family and friends by holding festive annual holiday parties.

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:
