Autocross – Performance Driving Chatham @ John D. Bradley Centre
Jun 24 all-day

Car Enthusiasts,

You are invited to enhance your driving skills in a safe and fun environment. Pylons are strategically set up into a driving course in an enclosed parking lot; each driver runs through it, and is timed. Practice driving smoother and try to beat your own time throughout the day. If you’ve never been – you have to try this at least once, it is a blast!

Autocross offers a perfect sweet spot between the street and racetrack. Speeds are much lower than the track.

Register: clubregistration.net

Registration opens in first week in May. Cost: $40

The Land Between Driving Tour

An exceptional route is being carefully designed that meets the needs of Porsche enthusiasts and their high-performance cars – minimal traffic and great pavement! Please join us for a great day exploring a very rural area northeast of Toronto with fabulous roads and breathtaking rugged sights you likely have never seen. The Land Between has been described by author Brian Robert as “the chaotic collision of the St. Lawrence Lowlands and Canadian Shield,” a large swath of area that runs from Georgian Bay in the west to Kingston in the east — “rolling hills, flat plains, hard rock and conifers.” Further details will be published here prior to registration opening, stay tuned!

  • Hosted by James Biggar [email protected]
  • 25 Porsches
  • Cost: $40 per person (includes lunch, tax and tip).
  • Registration via ClubReg opens Sunday, May 20, 2018 at 9 p.m.

Driving Tour To South Coast Jazz Festival (Port Dover)
Aug 18 all-day

Driving Tour To South Coast Jazz Festival (Port Dover)

Sign up early for perhaps the most interesting driving tour of the 2018 season! We currently plan to leave from either Oakville or Milton, and follow a special route over and around Hamilton Mountain and then stop for a group lunch enroute to Port Dover in Norfolk County, the home of a number of wineries. Jeremy organized a great event in 2017 which had us crisscrossing the escarpment on some exciting roads, which many of us felt was the best event we had been engaged in that year; this driving tour will encompass a number of those elements.

Port Dover is the home of the South Coast Jazz Festival, now in its fifth year and attracting top-tier jazz and blues performers over the festival weekend (starts Friday and concludes Sunday afternoon), with the main event taking place Saturday evening, the day of this driving tour. This driving tour includes a ticket for each person to the festival, which includes a reception hosted by Dini Petty, dinner and the evening performances. A special “Porsche paddock” is planned next to the main event venue, so parking at this busy festival is taken care of!

For those who wish to stay overnight, a block of hotel rooms has been reserved but be warned — the number of hotel rooms in Norfolk County is rather limited so, if you want to reserve a room, please register early and then contact John Buckingham regarding the available hotel options. In any case, the block of rooms will be released by June 1, in fairness to the demand from other festival participants. And, for those staying over, a group breakfast is being considered AND your festival ticket will give you access to any of the other performances that day.

Cost for the event is $130 per person and includes lunch and the festival events (reception, dinner, performances). For more information on the South Coast Jazz Festival, please visit http://www.southcoastjazz.com/

  • Hosted by John Buckingham and Jeremy Gunness, [email protected],
  • 25 Porsches, 225 kilometres
  • cost $130 (includes reception, dinner, music performances)

Best Of Wine Country Driving Tour (West Edition: Niagara)

 

Enjoy a fun day touring Vineland and Niagara-On-The-Lake in your Porsche with fellow club members —  starting with Southbrook Vineyards, we visit their thoughtfully designed and LEED-certified hospitality pavilion. Through the guided wine tasting, we learn about Southbrook’s award-winning, sustainable and biodynamic viticulture practices. A picnic lunch and wine pairings are served. After lunch, stretch your legs as we take the scenic route to Vineland. Next stop is 13th Street Winery where we sample a couple of Ontario’s quintessential varietals, tour the estate, and don’t forget to treat yourself to butter tarts and other goodies from the famous 13th Bakery! For the art lovers, the gallery at 13th showcases original works by Canadian artists. Last but not the least, a pit stop at Cherry Lane for snacks and juices, before we head back home.

  • 20 Porsches, cost $48 (includes wine tasting and gourmet picnic lunch)
