PCA-GGR Duel in the Desert
Buttonwillow Raceway Park

March 28-29, 2020

Join GGR as we kick off our 2020 season at the challenging and fun Buttonwillow Raceway!  We will be running Configuration #1 CW (clockwise, normal direction).  First timers and beginners will receive instruction from GGR's PCA National qualified instructors.  Instruction is also available for intermediate and advanced drivers.  PCA-GGR's Driver Education events are focused on safety, fun and maximum track time.

This event also includes GGR's first Club Race of the 2020 season.
(Registration for the Club Race can be found at: http://register.pca.org.)

Ground School:  For those new to track driving and/or GGR DE events, and is included with the Student registration fee.  Ground school will cover safety, preparation, at-track instruction format, introduction of the scheduled track configuration, as well as event protocol and schedule.  The next ground school date / time / location is in the works, but plan on it being the weekend of March 14.

At Track Orientation:  Friday evening preceding the event.  Complementary to Ground School.  All are welcome.  Also good for experienced drivers making their first visit to this course.

Procrastination Fee:
Registration closes Saturday night midnight March 21.  That nasty $100 procrastination fee goes into effect midnight March 14.

Student Sell Outs:
Priority is given to PCA members and Porsche owners.  All others will be determined by registration and payment date.  Registration is not complete until payment is received.

Central Coast Region DE on Friday March 27:
Our good friends at the Central Coast Region will be hosting their DE on Friday March 27 (same track configuration).  Register for the CCR event here, and make it a three day weekend!

PCA - HPDE Insurance Program:
In June 2009, Porsche Club of America and Lockton Affinity announced the PCA - HPDE Insurance Program. This innovative program provides single-event physical damage coverage to PCA members who attend High-Performance Driver's Education events. Over the past ten years many auto insurers have changed their policies to exclude coverage for claims "occurring on a surface used for racing", "at a high-performance driving event", or "use of an auto at a racetrack". Your existing auto insurance policy may not cover damage to your car at the track.

Information on the PCA HPDE Insurance Program can be found here:
(This information is provided as a convenience to our members and should not be construed as an endorsement.)

Coverage from other companies may be available as well.

Paddock Camping:
RV sites are available direct from the track (661-764-5333).  Paved RV sites are around $50 for the weekend; unpaved RV sites are around $40.  (Of course, if you can snag one of the concrete aprons at the ends of the garage buildings, you're golden.)

Does Your Insurance Exclude HPDEs?

If your street insurance excludes on-track driving, an HPDE Insurance policy can buy you peace of mind

Affordable physical damage insurance for on-track incidents covers you, a co-driver & instructor with an agreed-value policy. See details...
