Cars and Sunset

Silver Strand State Beach

About this event


PCA SDR is hosting our very first ever Cars and Sunset. The event will start with a convoy, meeting at the Target parking lot in Mission Valley where we will convoy through Coronado to Silver Strand State Beach to watch the beautiful San Diego sunset.

PCA SDR is trying something different and we invite you to join the fun. Cars and Conversations have been going very well but have you been wishing for an event later in the day? Well, here's your chance to enjoy your Porsches along with a beautiful late summer/early fall San Diego sunset.

We will begin the event by meeting at the Target parking lot in Mission Valley where we will conduct the safety debrief and check everybody in. From here, we will convoy to Silver Strand State Beach.

PCA SDR has reserved a parking lot just for this event so you will not be driving around looking for parking. Once arrived, you're free to park your car and enjoy the evening watching the sun set with your fellow Porsche friends. Please feel free to bring chairs, blankets, jackets, light snacks, cameras, tripods, picnic baskets, etc to make your evening as enjoyable as possible.

Price is $5 per person on and $15 parking per car which will be paid by you at the entrance gate. Unfortunately, no-shows and late arrivals will not be refunded so don't be late as we will leave promptly. You must meet at the starting point in the Target parking lot in Mission Valley to sign waivers and receive wristband. Unfortunately, there is no option to meet directly at the Silver Strand State Beach.

Saturday, October 7th

If you are a PCA member and will be driving a Porsche, you're eligible to register for this convoy and event. When registering, please be sure to register each person attending as the price is $5 per person. Parking is $15 per car which you will pay separately at the beach entrance gate. You must sign the waiver upon check-in to the event at the Target parking lot in Mission Valley to receive your wrist band in order to drive with the PCA SDR convoy group. Please arrive at starting point fully gassed or fully charged.

The convoy will start from the Target parking lot in Mission Valley located at 1288 Camino Del Rio N, San Diego. From there, we will drive 8 West, then 163 South, and then 5 South. We will then cross over the Coronado Bridge and turn left on Orange Ave and continue towards Silver Strand State Beach along Silver Strand Blvd/CA-75. 

Please do not rev your engine, speed through the area, do any burn outs, play loud music, drive reckless, Tokyo drift, race, etc. You'll be representing PCA SDR and we don't want something to happen where we can't host these events anymore.
