Porsche Club of America – San Diego Region welcomes you!
Join us as we head to Southern California's newest track for the second of two great weekends in 2015: Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, Saturday & Sunday, October 24 & 25, running clockwise. October is an awesome time of year to be in the low desert, and since we haven't had an event for nearly six long months we expect a sellout. Be sure to carefully read everything on both this page and the next before signing up so that you aren't shut out!
This event features both a Driver's Ed (DE) and a Time Trial (TT), with separate run groups for each event and differing entrant requirements (DE events have no driving prerequisites; see Prior Experience section on the following page). Time Trials, which have driving prerequisites, work like a Driver's Ed event during practice, but feature Transponder timing during all sessions with times posted online and optionally sent to your mobile phone immediately thereafter, as well as available in the Club's permanent record database at the conclusion of the event (no timing for DE run groups though in-car timers are currently permitted except for novices). Due to very high demand, all participants signing up after September 17 are being Waitlisted. Sign up when registration first opens to avoid this uncertainty in the future. We do expect movement in the Waitlist as participants are vetted, cancellations occur, etc. If you are interested in participating, thoroughly read this information page and the next, follow all instructions, then carefully fill out the registration form on the third page. Your card will not be charged now (though the number will be collected) and you will be informed via e-mail if a spot becomes available for you. Please be prepared to respond within 24 hours (8 hours the week of the event) or the next person on the Waitlist will be contacted instead. Run groups are allocated based upon supply and demand. All spots are allocated first come, first served (subject to Season Pass priority). If you sign up and a spot does not become available for you, you will not be charged. Thus, if you are interested in participating, especially as a novice DE or experienced TT Student, indicate your interest by signing up ASAP.
Only two day registration is available for this event, though you may attend only one of the two days if you wish (DE participants must attend the Friday evening classroom session in Indio and if only choosing to drive one of the two days, must drive on Saturday). The base price for this event (assumes early registration, no need to rent anything, etc.) is $270 for the weekend. Track time per entrant is expected to be approximately 3 hours, and traffic is anticipated to be low so everyone should be able to get tons of flying laps. Our $/hour ratio is among the lowest of any group, especially when you factor in the quality aspect. See the Payment section below for more info.
To register we require that you join the PCA - San Diego group here on MotorsportReg.com (note: this just means adding PCA - San Diego to your list of Clubs on MotorsportReg; it does not make you a member of PCA). Regardless of which region of PCA you belong to or if you don't belong to PCA at all, you must join the SDR group on this web site (again, doing so will not make you a member of PCA). This will be done as a step in the registration process. Non-Porsches that meet our rules are welcome!!!
Physical Damage Insurance – NEW: Insurance for your car is available for this event via Lockton Affinity, LLC, PCA's exclusively endorsed insurance provider. Note that liability coverage is not included and Time Trial Timed Runs are specifically excluded from coverage. This insurance is strictly optional. For more info click here.

Event Hotel: Best Western Date Tree Hotel, 81909 Indio Boulevard, Indio, CA 92201, (760) 347-3421. The rate should be around $80/night. Ask for the Chuckwalla Race Track rate or the best available, in case they have a better offer at the time you call. If the Best Western is not available, check out Rodeway Inn & Suites, 82275 Indio Boulevard, Indio, CA 92201, (760) 775-2229. It is suggested that you call any hotel soon and directly, rather than using any travelnow.com links to the right in order to get the best rate.

Late Registration: You must register with credit card on file by 11:59 pm October 9 to receive the discounted online rate; after that a $50 late fee applies through October 18. Online registration closes at 11:59 pm October 18, after which even higher on-site registration fees apply (though space is unlikely to be available at that time).
