About this event
Savor the joys of spring in your Porsche by joining our warm-up event! REGISTER NOW!
Just from its name, you know that this PCA Chesapeake tour is going to be very unusual. For one thing, it will be both a driving escapade and a destination event. And it will feature not just one but two distinct destinations. The first is a deactivated Nike Missile Base in Granite, MD. The second is the joint Linganore Winecellars/Red Shedman Brewery.
Limited to 30 Porsches and 60 people, this tour is certain to sell out quickly, so sign up ASAP. The registration window will open on May 13 and close on May 20. Three editions of the tour will be offered on the same day, with staggered start times, corresponding to Groups 1, 2 and 3. Each group will be made up of no more than 10 cars and 20 people. THIS REGISTRATION IS FOR THE FIRST TOUR GROUP!
With a maximum capacity of 20 persons each, 45-minute guided tours will be offered to the 3 groups at the Cold War era base that once held anti-aircraft nuclear missiles. This Tour & Rally Committee event will conclude with a picnic lunch at Linganore. In between, there will be delightful country roads for us to enjoy in our Porsches. This extravaganza is the brainchild of tour master Ron Farb.
Scenic Drive – Join the fun and enjoy your car!
