NOTE: THIS EVENT WAS ORIGINALLY LISTED AS BEING HELD AT STREETS OF WILLOW. THE VENUE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO THE MAIN TRACK AT WILLOW SPRINGS (aka "BIG WILLOW").
Porsche Club of America – San Diego Region welcomes you!
Join us for the final event of the first half of the 2015 season (before our long and painful summer break) at Southern California's reference track: Willow Springs International Raceway's 2.5 mile road course, Saturday & Sunday, May 2 & 3. Early May should provide nice weather at this fun track and we expect a sellout, so 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 immediately thereafter as well as in the Club's permanent record database after the event (no timing for DE run groups though in-car timers are currently permitted except for novices). Students may be Waitlisted later, even if not immediately upon signing up, pending the availability of Instructors. Sign up when registration first opens to potentially avoid this uncertainty in the future (see info on registration priority below). We do expect significant movement in the Waitlist as qualified Instructors sign up, so register now to improve your chances of getting a spot on the grid. Run groups are allocated based upon supply and demand. All spots are allocated first come, first served, but with Season Pass members taking priority, and 2 day participants taking priority over 1 day participants. 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.
You may sign up for any one or both days. 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. Note that while the track map shown at this link is for big Willow, Lockton appears to be aware that the event is at Streets. Check with them though if you are considering purchasing.

Event Hotel: The event hotel is the Hampton Inn & Suites Lancaster, 2300 W Double Play Way, Lancaster, CA 93536, (661) 940-9194. Ask for the Porsche Club of San Diego group rate of only $105 per night (single through quad; includes homemade waffles, etc. for breakfast).

Late Registration: You must register with credit card on file by 11:59 pm April 17 to receive the discounted online rate; after that a $50 late fee applies through April 26. Online registration closes at 11:59 pm April 26, after which even higher on-site registration fees apply (though space is unlikely to be available at that time).
Payment: You MUST use a credit card to pay if registering online, VISA, MasterCard, or Discover only. For complete event pricing details proceed with registration steps. You will have a chance to confirm (or abort) after you make your selections. Card billed AFTER the event.
