Greetings PCA Zone 4 Members,

The 3rd Zone Event of the year was held the last weekend in May: the Porscheplatz at Belle Isle. With only 27 days notice, I had to reschedule all of my planned region visits and spent much of the month of May focusing on planning and organizing this event. Each and every region did a fantastic job to help promote this event, which I am pleased to announce was extremely successful. In fact, ticket sales for Saturday surpassed the track's expectations, and we had to request an additional allocation of tickets. The event was attended by members from at least 10 of the 12 regions within the zone, and it was great to be able to spend some time getting to meet a number of you.

The weather was absolutely perfect to enjoy a number of races at scenic Belle Isle including a TUDOR race, a Pirelli World Cup Challenge race, a Super Trucks race, and two Indy races. Over 150 PCA members and Porsche owners enjoyed the exclusive trackside accommodations and were treated to meet and greets with Leh Keen of Alex Job Racing as well as Magnus Racing's Andy Lally and John Potter. There was also a presentation by Roger Hood from Mobil 1 Racing.

Over the course of the weekend a number of raffles took place, and attendees had the opportunity to win a Hot Pit Tour, in which the winners actually visited the pit during the TUDOR race; a Hot Lap Experience where the winners accompanied a professional driver as he drove the track at speed. And after an exciting and fun-filled day, one lucky attendee won a new set of Michelin tires. With this being the first Porscheplatz in the area in a number of years, there was concern about how well it would be received. While acquiring one of these events involves a great deal of persistence and lobbying, keeping high profile national events such as these depends on how well the events are supported and on your participation. I want to thank everyone in Zone 4 for working together and laying the groundwork for the future.

For those of you who enjoy participating in car corrals and watching races, July provides you with a number of opportunities; these include the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, and the 2nd Porscheplatz in our zone at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In addition, don't forget about P2O in Granville and the 36th Annual Concours d'Elegance of America at St. John's.

Please continue to read your region's newsletter and check the region Web sites and e-blasts for the most up to date list of events available to you both in your region and throughout the zone. Consider attending:
