"be safe, drive fast, have fun"
THIS EVENT IS FOR PORSCHE CARS only – but it doesn't matter where the engine is!
October 10, 2012: Please note the Beginners run group is now full. Anyone registering at this time for this run group will be placed on a wait list. Your credit card will not be charged unless you are accepted. All Beginners on the wait list will be provided an update on their status within 1 week of the event.
This event is open to drivers with no track experience ranging up to advanced level. We have three run groups allocated by experience of track driving and, of Thunderhill. Passing will be with mandatory point-by in all groups. Instructors will be allocated to all 'first time' drivers to the track.
We take safety very seriously, and will 'black flag' any participant who disregards passing protocols or consistently fails to give point by's, including denying access to the track with no refund of registration fees if deemed necessary by the safety officer. (Fortunately, in 6 years we have hardly ever had this happen because, as a limited sized group, we have a chance get to know each other and conga lines rarely happen!).
We are a Porsche club, not a driving school or a driving business, we several run safe, fun and friendly track events each year. We do not race, time trial or time laps. We limit our events to 60 cars so that we can offer plenty of room on track and lots of track time. The registration fee includes a full buffet lunch in the Clubhouse and bottled water throughout the day.
All drivers must certify that their car has passed a safety inspection, conducted by an approved safety inspector, within 30 days of this event. Information on safety inspections is listed on the requirements page. (All Porsche dealerships are approved, as are all reputable repair shops in the Region).
A no-host group dinner and check-in, for those who travel up the night before, will be at Casa Ramos in Willows at 6.30pm on October 28th. Further details will be provided to all registered participants close to the day.
Registration Fee: $240 if registered on or before October 21st, cancellation fee $50. No refunds after October 21st. Instructors $50. Lunch is included with all registrations.
