In this class you will learn all about how to register for events, how to prepare your car for the track, pre-tech, what to do when you arrive at the track, what our instructors will teach you, possible wear and tear on the car, what is an Autocross, what is a Driver’s Education event, and much more.
We will have various speakers who can answer all the questions you might have before your first track experience.We are going to restrict this event to 60 people, so register early to guarantee a spot! Of course any member is welcome, but we’re really trying to reach those of you who have considered participating in an HPDE/Autocross, but for whatever reason, have never done so.

PPIR “19” SPRING “SHAKE DOWN” HPDE
Alpine Mountain Region – Porsche Club of America
April 13th and 14th, 2019 at Pikes Peak International Raceway
Sponsored by Elite Deck and Fence
We are very happy to announce that we are once again hitting the track at Pikes Peak International Raceway. We have secured a limited number of garage rentals for the weekend – sign up early!
PPIR is a great track for the beginner and experienced driver alike. We will be running about 2/3 of the famed oval, plus the challenging infield road course section, so you get the best of both worlds. If you haven’t felt the thrill of going flat out around a banked oval, then hitting a tight road course, it’s something you need to experience.
The facilities here are the best in the State, with a fully paved paddock, a large indoor viewing area, and a view of the entire circuit from atop the scoring tower. Plus, it’s only an hour south of the Denver Tech Center, just south of Colorado Springs, right off I-25.
As part of this event, we’ll be hosting an onsite dinner on Saturday night in the track’s beautiful banquet room right after “Beer Thirty.” This dinner is open to everyone, so sign up for the festivities even if you’re not participating in the HPDE. Each driving day will end with the traditional “Beer Thirty” celebration.
As with all HPDE events, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from our dedicated corps of high performance driving instructors, who will give you one-on-one instruction on how to drive your car in a safe, fun and fast manner around this exciting 1.3 mile track.
2 Day HPDE $280 or 1 Day HPDE: $190
Saturday night Dinner is $25 per person – Everyone is welcome!
Non-PCA members additional $10
Weekend Garage Rental ($50) – Very limited quantity so sign up early!

All drivers must attend a drivers’ safety briefing that will be held after check-in and prior to departure. We will have multiple “run groups”. You will be given a colored dot when you check in that needs to be placed on the upper driver’s side of your windshield. The colored dot will designate which “run group” you will be driving in during the tour.

Mark your calendars for our first autocross event of 2019. 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 27 and the full Autocross on Sunday April 28.
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.
