Welcome to the Porsche Club of America ………….Zone 4
Greetings Zone 4 Members,
As winter is upon us, I am pleased to see that many regions are making an effort to encourage their membership to participate and stay involved this time of year. Most of the regions have held their Planning Meetings to help establish a preliminary calendar of events. A number of regions are holding events to welcome new members or introduce their newly elected officers. A few regions hold their holiday parties now as opposed to the end of the year, which is always so busy; while others have held fundraising events to help benefit their communities. This time of year many regions hold tech sessions, which are designed to help us better prepare for warmer days. And as we start looking ahead, it’s the perfect time to begin planning your driving season.
Amongst the events already planned are numerous DEs. Zone 4 regions host Driver’s Education events from April through October. These events are designed to provide a safe, structured, and controlled teaching and learning environment so that participants can improve their driving abilities and acquire a better understanding of vehicle dynamics and driving safety. They take place at a number of tracks including Grattan, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Mid-Ohio, Pitt Race, Putnam Park, Waterford Hills and Watkins Glen; so why not consider attending one this year.
Many regions have already opened enrollment for their DEs, and with Driver’s Education continuing to grow in popularity, more instructors are needed. In the next few months, two National Instructor Training Sessions are scheduled. The first will be on March 25, offered by ARPCA at Pitt Race, and the second will be on April 28, offered by CIR at Putnam Park, followed by a 2-day DE on April 29 and 30.
As region calendars firm up and events continue to be added, please remember to check your inboxes, region’s newsletter and website for the most up to date information about events available to you. Below are just some of the events taking place this month.
