Fun Run – San Rafael to Hop Kiln Winery
May 17 @ 8:30 am – 1:30 pm
Fun Run - San Rafael to Hop Kiln Winery

San Rafael to Hop Kiln Winery on Sunday May 17. Plenty of twisties through Marin County’s grass lands and redwoods, you’ll enjoy seascape vistas and end up at a winery in Healdsburg for lunch and wine tasting.

We’ll meet Sunday morning, May 17 at 8.30 in San Rafael [address to be emailed], and after signing waivers we’ll divide cars into appropriate groups, depending on drivers’ desired pace. Because this Fun Run is not a leisurely destination tour, you’ll need to give some thought to your driving style. This is an energetic drive and we want members to be comfortable and above all, safe. Here are several details to note:

  1. Due to high demand for these Fun Runs, this Drive is open to Golden Gate Region drivers only; Porsche cars only. We can accommodate 30 cars on this Drive.
  2. If you haven’t already got one, you’ll need to open an account on MotorsportsReg and sign-up both driver and your passenger [passenger need not be GGR member]; there is a $10 per car entry fee [non-refundable].
  3. If driver has never received a GGR name badge, be sure to check the appropriate box when registering, and we’ll have one for you.
  4. Wine Tasting and Picnic Lunch $31 p.p. incl Tax & Tip [non-refundable] for BBQ of Tri-tip, Sausages, Chicken thighs, Caesar salad, Pesto pasta salad, and Strawberry lemonade. While visiting the winery, you’ll have 20% discount on wine purchases.
  5. More logistical details to come, including route map, as we get closer to D-Day. For questions,
    email ggr.touring@gmail.com. Get out your PCA membership number for Golden Gate and a credit card and you’ll be in business.
  6. Registration opens Sat 25th at 10 am. Use this event/registration page link.

Fiesta New Mexico @ Santa Fe and Taos
May 21 – May 24 all-day
Fiesta New Mexico @ Santa Fe and Taos

New Mexico ROADRUNNER PCA is excited to host the 41st consecutive Fiesta New Mexico, May 21 through May 24, 2015. We are inviting all of you to join us for a true New Mexico experience in the spectacular beauty of New Mexico.

Santa Fe and Taos are located in Northern New Mexico at an altitude of 7,000 ft. with high sub-alpine temperatures ranging from 40 to 95 degrees in the summer and 34 to 50 degrees in winter. Santa Fe is our first destination, with a renowned art scene, great shopping and wonderful restaurants. Taos is home to Mable Dodge Luhan, Kit Carson, Millicent Rogers and the historical Taos Pueblo.

The kickoff will be Thursday, May 21 in Santa Fe, headquartered at The Lodge at Santa Fe. Friday, the 22nd, we will caravan on a spirited drive on the High Road to Taos. Our headquarters in Taos will be at The Sagebrush Inn. Built in 1920 it still retains much of its rustic charm, while having been remodeled to provide modern, comfortable, clean accommodations, including indoor plumbing.

This year’s Fiesta New Mexico will be a casual New Mexico experience, so reserve a little extra space in your Porsche for your cowboy boots. We will be 2-stepin’ to live music at the Sagebrush.

Mark your 2015 calendar for May 21- 24 and let us show you our beloved “Land of Enchantment”. Register here.

Autocross @ Alameda | Alameda | California | United States

Registering on-line gets you a $10 discount over on-site registration.

To register: Information will be posted on Motorsportreg.com a few weeks prior to the event.

Are you new to PCA and this is your first autocross? As a new member and new autocrosser welcome, we’d like to treat you to your first event and waive the registration fee. Email Andrew at to arrange for a discount code to use on Motorsportreg.com.

The price, to be paid on-line through MotorsportReg, is $50, with a $10 discount extended to current PCA members. All drivers, including on-line registrations, must check in at the registration table before 8:30 am. We reserve the right to verify PCA membership at registration. Please bring your PCA membership card to ensure your discount.

On-site registration will be available from 7:30 am to 8:30 am. On-site registration is $50 for PCA members and $60 for non-members.

Our events are open to the following participants only:

  • Anyone participating in a Porsche, PCA member or not!
  • PCA members driving any car model
  • Invited guests of PCA members with prior approval from the Autocross Chair. Please email autocross@pca-ggr.org for prior approvals.

The location for this event is Alameda Point. We use a decommissioned runway on the former Alameda Navel Air Station. The site doesn’t have a formal address, but if you set your GPS to the intersection of Main Steet and Navy Way in Alameda, CA, you’ll get there. Just past that intersection, Main Street dead ends at a chain link fence with a gate. Access to the site is through that gate.

Schedule:

Gates open at 7:00.
Registration and course walk 7:30 to 8:30
Mandatory Drivers meeting at 8:45
First car on course: 9:00
Note: All times are estimated.

Cars will be tech inspected in the paddock before the drivers meeting or on grid.

If you don’t have a permanent number already assigned by GGR or Zone 7, a car number will be automatically assigned to you. If you’ve run with us before, you’ll likely be assigned the same number.

A list of driver/car# will be emailed to the registrants one day before the event.
