Tech Session – 356 Pre-A Restoration (Tech Session) @ Chatham, Ontario
Mar 26 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Restoration of 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Chassis 51084.

Got a barn find 356? Come see the restoration of one of the first 5000 Porsches made. Reconstruction began in 1985 and the welding was finished within a couple of years. Then, life intervened and the Pre-A languished for about 25 years before restoration resumed in earnest. At the end of January 2017, the car is fully repaired and reassembled and the restoration team will provide a rare glimpse into the process of restoring an original 356.

This event is limited to 15 UCR Members passionate about 356’s.

 Chatham, Ontario: Confirmed registrants will be provided the venue address

Karl joined UCR in 1991 and a short time later began his motorsports adventure as a student in UCR’s driver education program in 1994 with his 944 Turbo; and when he became an instructor he was one of the youngest ever in PCA. He progressed through PCA Club Racing and in 2003 formed C360R, a professional motorsports operation that prepares and races cars in sportscar series in North America. This multiple championship-winning team has fielded cars in IMSA’s WeatherTech Championship, the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Pirelli World Challenge, Canadian Touring Car and PCA.

As a team owner, he has had drivers win over 50 races and five professional sportscar championships between them. Beyond that, C360R has won ten Manufacturer’s championships with their automotive partners.

Come join UCR members on a half-day journey through some of the most thrilling roads to drive on, surrounded by scenic sights of the countryside and cityscapes to end at the 2017 UCR Open House at 427 Auto Collision.

There will be lots of prizes and the Rally entry fee is a nominal $20 per car. Lunch is not included in the registration fee, but available at the end of the rally at the UCR Open House for a charitable donation by purchasing meal tickets.

Participants must be at the Meadowvale Club, 6750 Mississauga Rd, Mississauga, ON L5N 2L3 (located behind the Hilton Hotel on Mississauga Rd at Argentia Drive, just south of 401) at 8:00 sharp to register and attend the drivers briefing while snacking on coffee and donuts. Cars will depart at 8:30 a.m.

A Rally is a technical driving event. Multiple checkpoints time the cars and penalize early or late arrivals at checkpoints. Trip odometers are set to zero at the calibration point after a short drive from the starting point to get drivers and navigators accustomed to the written instructions of the route. From the calibration point forward, there will be no information about road names. Navigators must pay careful attention to the way points, landmarks and constantly check with drivers for odometer readings. Driving directions forward of the calibration point are provided in Kilometres and Miles, such as “Drive 3km (1.86 Miles) and turn right” followed by step-by-step distance to each way point for navigation of the entire rally. The route instruction sheet will also have questions about significant landmarks to score points for observation, so familiarize yourself with the questions before you drive off and keep eyes open to recognize and record the landmarks.
