The 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (WTSC) is off and running. And it sets the stage for the 2016 Porscheplatz season.

PCA’s Canadian Porscheplatz at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park will be part of Canada’s biggest sports car race of the year, the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix, which will show­case the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship on July 7-10.

Expect to see the same great Porscheplatz activi­ties as in past years including dedicated Porsche onlyparking at the Tent Corral at the top of corner 1–a great viewing area; the camaraderie of your fellow PCA members and Porsche owners in our hospitality tent; presentations by drivers, teams and sponsors; information from Porsche; live cable TV feed of the races; and refreshing beverages.

Remember all of this wouldn’t be possible without the PCA and UCR volunteers who work so hard to make the Porscheplatz an enjoyable experience.

So mark your diaries and I look forward to seeing you there.

  1. My first time at CTMP on Sunday for the big race. That looked like a nice set up on the hill to park and watch. I could not get in for a look around but may get pass for next time.
