The annual Porsche Parade is a week long gathering of people and Porsches from all over the world. It is held in a different location each year. Events include Concours, Rallying, Autocrossing, Technical Sessions, and more.
A social event can be any gathering of club members. Most common events are lunch or dinner at restaurants, members volunteering to host parties at their houses, golf outing, and annual holiday parties at select venues. We may meet at a specified location and drive together or plan to just meet at the venue. The idea is to enjoy our cars and camaraderie.
An autocross is a closed-course driving event where the objective is to complete the course in a safe manner in the shortest amount of time possible (fastest overall speed). Some autocrosses are held using a large open area with the course marked by pylons. Some autocrosses are held on a closed-circuit road course.
Our Region offers driver education programs that allow you to learn how to drive your Porsche in a variety of circumstances. Emphasis is placed on improving your safety skills as a driver as well as high performance driving.
PCA Club Racing
PCA Club Racing is an organized race series for Porsche owners. The rules are similar to vintage racing. See the Club Race Page for more information.
A rally can be competitive or for fun. The objective of a rally is to follow a course, usually on public roads, to the precise detail specified in the rules. Competitive rallies dictate a certain schedule for the checkpoints along the way. Points are deducted by arriving at the checkpoint either early or late. Fun rallies may include a gimmick (poker rally, regional interest). Part of the challenge with a fun rally is to discover the intended route, which may require other skills such as solving a puzzle or looking for obscure reference points.
A concours is a judged event where cars are prepared to “as delivered” condition. Points are deducted from a maximum possible value based on condition and cleanliness. Various concours rules are used depending on the level of competition. The annual Porsche Parade concours is the highlight of the concours schedule.

Just like it sounds, but consider what incredible roads we are blessed with here in Ohio and Michigan to run the tours. Join your friends and their Porsches to chase each other over the hills, across the valleys, around the Great Lakes, eateries and picnic areas as we enjoy the twists, turns and sights only available as a string of beautiful Porsches wind through the landscape.
