Due to the impending inclement weather that we are expecting in the Denver area we have decided to cancel both the Autocross School scheduled for Saturday, April 29th as well as the Sunday, April 30th Autocross. We are currently looking for other open dates in our busy schedule for these popular autocross events. For those that have registered to attend your credit cards will not be charged.

Where: Front Range Airport Front Range Main Terminal – See Directions Below
When: Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30

Event Registration

Mark your calendars for our first autocross event of 2017. Both the autocross school and the autocross will be held at the Front Range Airport where there is plenty of room to setup a long course with a lot of interesting autocross features. Twists, Turns, and Slaloms all await you to improve and challenge your driving skills.

If you are new to the club, new to your Porsche or other favorite four wheel means of transport, want to improve your driving technique or simply want to enjoy your Porsche, we encourage you to register for the Autocross School and Car Control Clinic on Saturday April 29 and the full Autocross on Sunday April 30.

Are you familiar with Autocross? Autocross is a performance driving experience conducted in a safe environment at relatively low speeds. You will not hurt your car and more importantly you will not hurt yourself. Autocross is a lot fun and provides small doses of adrenaline rush that will keep you smiling for days. Come out to the school on Saturday and learn to autocross with our experienced instructors. What will happen is you will gain additional confidence in your driving ability, learn the limits of your car’s braking capabilities, practice correct seating, hand, feet and vision positions, as well as push and perhaps exceed the limits of your tire’s adhesion capabilities.

By the way, autocross is a social event and a great time to meet new club members and visit with friends.

Each autocross has a unique course design and undoubtedly provides you with a fun driving experience. Last but not least autocross is a social event and a great time to meet new club members and visit with friends.

Autocross School
Our excellent club instructors will work with you by providing plenty of driving time through three car control exercises. Learn about car balance through a slalom course, throttle steering around two skid pads, and threshold braking and acceleration in a unique triangle exercise. All of this in the morning followed by an afternoon of learning how to autocross using these skills on a full scale autocross course.

PCA Parents, remember the School and the Autocross are both open to licensed 16 and 17 year olds. Do you want to be the BEST PARENT EVER? Register your teenager for the school. We always have an instructor in the car and the skills they learn are directly applicable to the street.

Autocross on Sunday
On Sunday, we return to the Front Range Airport facility to run against the clock! Are you the quickest air cooled 911, Boxster, Turbo, 914, Cayenne? Run times are around a minute, which is a long time to hold your breath if you haven’t attended the school to learn how to breath! This event is a great chance to try out your new found skills from the school and to compete against your friends.

Details
Remember, autocross events are open to licensed 16 and 17 year olds. RMR Junior Participation forms and instructions can be found under the forms tab on the club’s website. Please read them carefully.
The Autocross School is limited to 50 participants. Please register early to assure your spot.
Walkups will be accepted for Sunday (cash and check payments only), but Pre-registration for both events is appreciated as it allows us to plan for ‘beer thirty’ as well as organize the event and obtain volunteers.

A Porsche is not required. Only SUV’s with a Porsche badge are permitted and no pickups. Convertibles are just fine and you can run them with the top down.

Restrooms are available onsite, however no concessions are available nor are any nearby. Please remember to bring your own lunch and non alcoholic drinks during the day. Refreshments will be served at the end of each day. Coffee and rolls each morning.

You will need a Snell rated 2010 or newer helmet. Motorcycle helmets with this designation are acceptable. The club will have several loaner helmets available.
