About this event
The Chesapeake Region invites all PCA members
to attend the
For over 50 years, Chesapeake Region has invited its members and friends to celebrate the annual Chesapeake Challenge – the oldest running multi-event weekend in PCA history. The Challenge quickly became popular among Mid Atlantic owners, and attendance grew to well over a hundred cars in the ensuing years. The Challenge has moved around Maryland throughout its history. From 1968-2008, the event was held as a three-day event held from Friday over Saturday, with the autocross being held on Sunday morning. Last year, the event was a less than traditional “virtual” event, so we’re excited to be back in person this year! The 52nd Chesapeake Challenge will be an all day, one-day event.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23rd
This year’s event will be held entirely at Frey’s Brewing in scenic Mt. Airy, Maryland. The brewery is located on a fully functioning agricultural farm with rolling hills in the background of the lovely Brewery Barn.
Saturday will open with a Concours d’Elegance consisting of Touring (judging of interior, exterior, engine and storage) and Street-Prepared categories (interior and exterior). Classes for both categories will be based on entries. In addition to class awards, there will be awards for Best of Street Class and Best of Concours/Touring Group. Both the Street and Touring Categories will be eligible for People’s Choice Award.
The Chesapeake Region will host a picnic lunch catered by Carterque. Shortly after lunch, a Gimmick Rally will leave from the Brewery featuring a scenic and delightful route created by Ron Farb, made even more enjoyable and satisfying by clever gimmicks devised by Steve Graham. Individual first-, second- and third-place trophies will be awarded to the top-performing drivers and navigators.
Upon your return, we will participate in a Tech quiz testing your Porsche knowledge…this is supposed to be a “fun” test, if there is such a thing. Coinciding with the Tech Quiz you will be able to sample Frey’s Brewery offerings. There is NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL to be brought to the Brewery. The final event of the day is the Awards Dinner Buffet catered by E.W. Becks.
