Member cost including dinner is $15/person payable at the door. Please RSVP to Hank Beamer by March 22nd, so that we can plan the food accordingly

Set against the sexy, glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, the film is based on the true story of a great sporting rivalry between handsome English playboy James Hunt (Hemsworth), and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Bruhl). The story follows their distinctly different personal styles on and off the track, their loves and the astonishing 1976 season in which both drivers were willing to risk everything to become world champion in a sport with no margin for error: if you make a mistake, you die. (runtime – 2 hours)

Tire Rack Street Survival for Teens* @ Xerox
Apr 6 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!

Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

All Schools $95.

Several group driving events are being planned this season for early Porsche cars. These include the 356, any long hood 911/912 (1964-1973) and all 914s.

April’s group drive will take us from a 10AM meet-up at Terry Hills in Batavia and wind south toward Naples with lunch at Naples Valley BBQ. We will stop along the way for morning coffee in Mt. Morris and afternoon ice cream at Minnehan’s in Lakeville. From there, Rochester and Buffalo groups can choose separate return routes.

Tech Inspection @ Eksten Autoworks
May 1 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Tech Inspections are mandatory for anyone attending our Driver Education events, and strongly recommended for anyone planning to Autocross. In addition, all Porsche owners are more than welcome to have their cars inspected. This is a terrific way to ensure your car is ready for the driving season.

At a tech inspection your car will be put on a lift, wheels will be removed, and a general check-up of your cars road and/or track worthiness will be performed. Some of the items checked are suspension components, safety systems, belts and hoses, fluids, bearings, brakes, tires and wheels, and exhaust system. Links to the actual Tech Inspection form, and the Rules & Regulations, can be found on the Driver Education page of the Niagara PCA website.

Tech Inspections are first come first served, so arrive early. Drivers are expected to assist in removing and replacing their own wheels, so please dress appropriately. Of course, there will be plenty of people on hand to assist. Anyone interested in helping at either of the Tech Inspections can contact Mike Zotter. Assistance is always greatly appreciated!

Zone 1 – Porsche Clash* @ Watkins Glen International
May 31 @ 8:00 am – Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm

Join us for the 18th Annual CLASH AT THE GLEN CLUB RACE  May 31, & June 1, 2, 2019.

Hosted by the Regions of Zone 1 at Watkins Glen International Raceway in Watkins Glen, NY

Established in 2001 as part of the Porsche Club of America Club Racing Program, “The Clash at the Glen” is an event you must attend, either as a racer or as a volunteer.  Held at the historic Watkins Glen Race Track, nestled in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, this track is one that cannot be missed. There will be almost 300 racing Porsches!!  This is one of the biggest Porsche racing events in the country. The three day event is free for club members (bring your club membership card to get in the gate)  and is great chance to get see Porsche racing up close with open access to the paddock and pits. And another great reason to go: there are 10 or so racers from the Niagara Region who will be racing at the three day event. Let’s support our region!!
Held in late May/early June, this event is one where racers must register early.  Being such a historic track and one of the best drives in the country, race classes fill up quickly.  Not only can this race accomodate up to 300 racers, the volunteer effort over 50 volunteers from various Regions throughout the Zone is an effort second to none.   In order to make this event a success every year we rely on the volunteers to make it happen. Without their effort this race would not be possible.  We look forward to seeing you at The Clash this year!

Early registration and hotel reservations are recommended.

Visit the Zone 1 website  for event details.

 

There is no better way to help support Zone 1, than by volunteering for this year’s Clash at the Glen Club Race. Held at one of the best and most historic racetracks in the country, the Clash brings together club members for 3 days of fun and exciting racing, which you can be a part of. Volunteers are what enable us to put on one of the best club races in PCA. We encourage you, your family and friends to register as volunteers for this year’s Zone 1 Clash at the Glen Club Race.

Tech Inspection @ Eksten Autoworks
Sep 11 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Tech Inspections are mandatory for anyone attending our Driver Education events, and strongly recommended for anyone planning to Autocross. In addition, all Porsche owners are more than welcome to have their cars inspected. This is a terrific way to ensure your car is ready for the driving season.

At a tech inspection your car will be put on a lift, wheels will be removed, and a general check-up of your cars road and/or track worthiness will be performed. Some of the items checked are suspension components, safety systems, belts and hoses, fluids, bearings, brakes, tires and wheels, and exhaust system. Links to the actual Tech Inspection form, and the Rules & Regulations, can be found on the Driver Education page of the Niagara PCA website.

Tech Inspections are first come first served, so arrive early. Drivers are expected to assist in removing and replacing their own wheels, so please dress appropriately. Of course, there will be plenty of people on hand to assist. Anyone interested in helping at either of the Tech Inspections can contact Mike Zotter. Assistance is always greatly appreciated!

Niagara on the Road goes to Road Atlanta @ Road Atlanta
Oct 5 @ 8:00 am – Oct 6 @ 5:00 pm

The HPDE Committee is pleased to announce that Niagara on the Road 2019 will be going to Road Atlanta October 5th-6th! This fabled 2.54 mile road course has been home to Petit LeMans since 1998 and is recognized as one of the world’s best road courses.
Mark your calendars! More information to follow.

Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta is a 2.54-mile (4.088 km) road course located just north of Braselton, Georgia, United States. The facility is utilized for a wide variety of events, including professional and amateur sports car and motorcycle races, racing and driving schools, corporate programs and testing for motorsports teams. The track has 12 turns, including the famous “esses” between turns three and five; and Turn 12, a downhill, diving turn. The track is owned by IMSA Holdings, LLC through its subsidiary Road Atlanta, LLC, and is the home to the Petit Le Mans, as well as AMA motorcycle racing, and smaller events throughout the year. Michelin acquired naming rights to the facility in 2018.  In case you want a little more history, click here.

**Please note: This HPDE event is not sponsored by NRPCA, it is sponsored and hosted by Chin Motorsports, hence it will not be covered by the PCA Insurance program. Also, though some of our participants may be part of an informal caravan to head to and back from the track, those activities are likewise not sponsored by NRPCA and therefore not covered by PCA Insurance.**

Here’s some very pertinent information from Tony Giovinazzo.

The 2019 Niagara On The Road Drivers Ed event is taking shape. The plan is to attend the CHIN Motorsports DE school on October 5 & 6, 2019. There are a few things to know to get registered for the event as well as registering as a driver for CHIN.

The first rule is that CHIN will allow an instructor to instruct at a given track ONLY if they have driven the track before. Since most of us have NOT driven Road Atlanta, our plan is to register and drive as ‘open track’ drivers. We would get 3.5 hours of track time each day.

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, here is how we go about registering. The link below will take you to CHIN’s website. I would suggest you review all the relevant info about how their schools work. One has to ‘join’ CHIN as a member, which is a $50.00 fee. This fee is a 13 month membership. (if you’ve driven RA before and want to sign up as an instructor, the fee will most likely be waived). Once registered as a member, the next step is to register for the event. Last years fee for the event was $639.00 for the two days. 2019 prices for October have not yet been released. Registration opens eight (8) weeks prior to the event. That puts registration opening somewhere around the week of August 5. They will show ‘registration opens’ dates as the summer gets going and well ahead of opening date. Once known, we will share that date.

From a planning standpoint, we need to be registered as members and then register and pay for the event on opening day or within the first couple of days. I have been assured that this should almost guarantee attendance. If we wait a week or two, the event may be filled up. As always, early registration is best.

If you think you may attend, save the dates. We will establish a mailing list to keep people updated and send reminders about registering as members and drivers. Instructors are available for registrants, but I believe there is an additional fee for that. ($75.00) Once we have an idea on numbers travelling, we can look at travel plans, hotels etc, and, hopefully, secure a block of rooms near the track. Camping is available at the track if you’re interested. Please let Rich or me know if you’re interested and we’ll start the unofficial registration process.

Join the Niagara Region PCA for a fun scenic drive to Letchworth State Park, the “Grand Canyon of the East”.

8:30am – Meet at  Garber Porsche of Rochester, 3955 W. Henrietta Rd., Rochester, NY 14623. They are hosting breakfast once again this year.

We are changing things up a little this year, chili and sides will be provided.  We are looking for desserts.  Please bring dessert for about 4-6 people only.  We appreciate the generous response in the past, the leftover food and snacks make for more trash and that is the one issue that we have no real answer for as we have to remove everything from the shelter when we leave. Anything you bring into the park, we would appreciate it if you would take leftovers and extras back home with you. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Please RSVP to ——– by October 10th. We need a headcount for Garber as they are catering our breakfast. You must RSVP to have breakfast at Garber’s

Tire Rack Street Survival for Teens* @ Watkins Glen International
Nov 2 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!

Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

Chili Run to Letchworth @ Letchworth State Park - North Highbanks Pavilion 1
Oct 17 @ 9:00 am – 3:45 pm

photocropThis event is RAIN OR SHINE! Like last year, we have an enclosed pavilion so if it’s cold and rainy the fire in the fireplace will be cranked by the time everyone arrives so it should be nice and toasty warm.

Join the Niagara Region PCA for a fun scenic drive to Letchworth State Park, the “Grand Canyon of the East”.

8:30am – Meet at  Garber Porsche of Rochester, 3955 W. Henrietta Rd., Rochester, NY 14623. They are hosting breakfast once again this year.

9:30am– Departure for Letchworth State Park. We will tour the park and arrive at the North Lodge at 1:15 for lunch.

The park entry fee is $10. Bring cash.
1:15-3:45pm – Lunch at North Highbanks Pavilion at Letchworth

We are changing things up a little this year, chili and sides will be provided.  We are looking for desserts.  Please bring dessert for about 4-6 people only.  We appreciate the generous response in the past, the leftover food and snacks make for more trash and that is the one issue that we have no real answer for as we have to remove everything from the shelter when we leave. Anything you bring into the park, we would appreciate it if you would take leftovers and extras back home with you. Your help is greatly appreciated.

 

Bring your appetite, hiking shoes, and camera.
