Welcome to the Porsche Club of America ………….Zone 4
Greetings Zone 4 Members,
Over the past few months, I have travelled extensively throughout the zone attending a multitude of outstanding events affording me the opportunity to interact with a number of PCA members.
I was able to participate in MORPCA’s 3rd annual HPDE at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway along with nearly 300 drivers from all over the country, with a large group from throughout zone 4. The outstanding 3-day event is still the only one of its kind permitted at IMS. The weekend began with a gathering held in a pavilion near the iconic pagoda, as well as a reception the following evening in the Hall of Fame Museum. This year there was also a party for all of the volunteers and instructors held at the Dallara Indy Car Factory in nearby Speedway, IN.
I recently attended Northern Ohio Region’s Annual Rib Burn-off and social. This event is consistently one of their largest social events of the summer and included a people’s choice car show. In addition, there was even live music provided.
I also recently attended Eastern Buckeye Region’s Annual Summer Party, an event I’ve been told I needed to attend since becoming Zone Rep. The Summer Party is one of the region’s most popular events. This year’s theme was a Toga Party, and it was great to see so many of the members participate. One of the highlights of the evening was an impressive fireworks display.
As we look ahead to events being offered this month, there are some great opportunities to enjoy some more time behind the wheel before the driving season concludes and it is time to store your car for the winter. A number of regions have beautiful color tours scheduled. In addition, there are still a few more DEs available for those who want another opportunity to spend some time on the track, as well as autocrosses, car shows, and there are always terrific social events to attend. Make sure to get out and take advantage of these opportunities. Please remember to check your region’s website and newsletter for the most up to date list of events available to you.
I hope you will consider travelling to some of the outstanding events being held throughout Zone 4.
