The 2021 Track Chair for the Bluegrass Region of the Porsche Club of America is James Diehl.
Track days are fantastic for increasing driving skills making you a better driver on the road. Those who have been before can attest to that as well as the fact it is great time to meet other enthusiasts and enjoy the camaraderie. Whether you have been involved in track events before or thinking you would like to try a High-Performance Driver Education (DE) weekend, please reach out. My hope is to help organize our region’s interest and build some networks for members added enjoyment.
If you wonder what it is truly like, the PCA put out a great video to actually see what HPDE is like. Do you want to learn more about PCA Drivers Education Program? Check this video out! Please click on the link or go to the PCA news page.
The mission and purpose of the Porsche Club of America’s Drivers Education Program is to provide a safe, structured and controlled teaching and learning environment. The PCA DE Program is designed so that participants can improve their driving abilities and acquire a better understanding of vehicle dynamics and driving safety. Participants will experience first-hand the capabilities of high performance automobiles in a controlled, closed-course environment and acquire skills that will enhance safer vehicle operation in all driving situations.
But wait!!!! Do you own Macan or Cayenne? Sure, they may not have the speed of a GT3, but they are amazing on the road course. Don’t rule yourself out, These SUV’s will deliver a fantastic time and provide you the opportunity to REALLY learn to handle your vehicle. The point is that no matter what you drive; HPDE will make you a better and safer driver on the road facing the day to day challenges of simply commuting.
For a list of events, you can go to Motorsportreg.com and registration can be completed there.
If you need help or are looking for other members of region that might go, I again, encourage all to contact me so we can build a BGPCA coalition attending events.
