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 8:00am sharp to register and attend the drivers briefing while snacking on coffee and donuts. Cars will depart at 8:30am.

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.

Spring into Action Muskoka Driving Tour

 

Start the 2018 driving season off right! For our 10th annual Spring into Action Muskoka Driving Tour, this year hosted by your Driving Tours Co-Chairs Peter Hoffman and Stefan Walther, we will meet at Tim Horton’s (naturally) just north of Orillia, then travel along some of the best winding roads of Muskoka in several “Run Groups” enjoying the crisp spring air and breathtaking lakeside views. Along the route, there will be several stops including the best hot chocolate in the Muskokas, a picturesque setting for lunch and a place at the end to regroup and share memories. Our route will start at the north end of Lake Simcoe and wind through Severn Bridge, Khashe Lake, Housey’s Rapids, through Gravenhurst, along the western shore of Lake Muskoka with a stop in Bala, through Port Sandfield, then north between Lakes Joseph and Rosseau for lunch at Crossroads in the town of Rosseau. In the afternoon, we will twist and turn our way south along the western shores of Lakes Rosseau and Muskoka, along Frank Miller Memorial Route towards Gravenhurst, where we will conclude with a mid-afternoon get together.

Spring Awakening Niagara Driving Tour

Kick off the 2018 driving season in style! With many Porsches emerging from their winter hibernation slumber, get the juices pumping once again in not only your car but also your own body with this fantastic drive up and down and around the mighty Niagara escarpment — starting in the Hamilton area and wrapping up with a mini car show on the south lawn of Canada’s largest winery Peller Estates, complete with a gourmet wine and canapé reception!

The route begins at the top of the escarpment with spectacular views of Lake Ontario, various towns and villages, and even Toronto’s skyline; then twists up and down some beautiful rolling back country; dips below the Welland Canal by way of the Thorold tunnel (gear down so we can hear you sing!); then connects with the picturesque Niagara River Parkway and heads into Old Town Niagara-On-The-Lake.

A happy ending awaits as we pull onto the south lawn of Peller Estates winery for a mini car show and gourmet reception of fine wine and scrumptious canapés created by Executive Chef and Cityline personality Jason Parsons, inspired by local Niagara farms and growers. If desired, extend the enjoyment with fellow Porschephiles on the patio of Peller’s Barrel House Grill as the sun sets over the vineyards — and our beautiful cars.

  • Hosted by Stefan Walther [email protected],
  • 25 Porsches, 200 kilometres,
  • cost $53.25 per person (includes mini car show with wine and canapé reception)
