WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE INSTRUCTION IN THE CAR 

THE PORSCHE CLUB OF AMERICA AND THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA HAS  STATED WE MUST WEAR A MASK IN PUBLIC AND PRACTICE PHYSICAL DISTANCING OF SIX (6) FEET – INSTRUCTION OF 2 PEOPLE IN A PORSCHE IS NOT POSSIBLE TO MEET THE SIX-FOOT RULE  FOR THIS EVENT!

HOWEVER, IF YOU CO HABITAT WITH SOMEONE, AND ONE IS AN INSTRUCTOR, YOU MAY HAVE THE OTHER PERSON IN THE CAR FOR INSTRUCTION 

Everyone must wear a mask at all times (within reason) unless eating or drinking or in a car wearing a helmet

We will try and keep this a clean and simple event by not having our usual Sunday night meeting – especially as there will be no novice meeting

 We will do Sunday CHECK IN at the event hotel and FINAL TECH INSPECTION

CHECK IN AND FINAL TECH INSPECTION WILL BE DONE ON MONDAY MORNING ALSO STARTING AT 7 AM UNTIL THE DRIVER’S MEETING AT 8:15 AM

 

AS ALWAYS, WITHIN 30 DAYS OF OUR EVENT YOUR CAR MUST BE INSPECTED BY A SHOP LISTED ON THE ZONE 8 WEBSITE, USING THE TECH INSPECTION FORM AVAILABLE ON THE ZONE8.ORG WEBSITE
