    Explore one of North America’s most impressive, most popular and most powerful natural wonders — Niagara Falls — as well as several also-incredible nearby attractions along the Niagara River, on this exhilarating driving tour and exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences, from the best vantage point possible: the cockpit of your Porsche!

    A plethora of exciting and rare opportunities await as PCA UCR is granted unprecedented access to Old Fort Erie and the sights and sounds of this War Of 1812 National Historic Site, a putting competition at Legends On The Niagara championship golf course complete with prizes, scrumptious gourmet multi-course lunch at Table Rock House Restaurant overlooking the mighty Niagara Falls (and with private Porsche parking!), very special Journey Behind The Falls excursion through 130-year-old tunnels at the base of Niagara Falls (a truly remarkable and unique perspective), as well as a cruise through picturesque Old Town Niagara-On-The-Lake.

    The day’s extraordinary events begin with a mid-morning meet-up just off the QEW in Vineland and a blast through some wonderful twists and turns, ups and downs, in Niagara escarpment backcountry, on the way to Old Fort Erie.

    In 1943, Winston Churchill called the curvy meandering road along the Niagara River “the prettiest Sunday afternoon drive in the world.” For this driving tour, however, we plot the route on a Friday for less traffic and fewer tourists, complete from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.

    The day wraps up with a late-afternoon refreshment reception at Queenston Heights Restaurant. Did you know this is where Niagara Falls was originally located 12,300 years ago? Erosion has taken it away 11.4 kilometres down the river. Just one of many trivia tidbits to be gleaned, so don’t miss what will certainly be one of the most talked-about driving tours of the 2020 season!

    Hosted by Kimberly Willis and Stefan Walther, driving-tours@pcaucr.org, 40 Porsches, 200 kilometres, cost $119 per person (includes lunch at Table Rock House Restaurant in Niagara Falls, admission into several attractions, wrap-up refreshment reception at Queenston Heights Restaurant, other highlights)

    Registration via ClubReg opens Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 9 p.m.
