The Porsche Club of America is a not-for-profit car club run by its members for its members with 145 local chapters, called “Regions” across North America. This is the web site of the club’s “Upper Canada Region” which covers most of Ontario except the Ottawa Valley. Upper Canada Region is a thriving, active, volunteer-run club with some 4,000 members and affiliates.
If you drive a Porsche or are considering an acquisition, you will know that it’s a pretty exciting and special event. Whether yours is a two-door or four-door sports car, you’ll appreciate the driving experience and the quality of your Porsche, but you should also be aware of the new opportunities it can open up for you to increase enjoyment of your Porsche experience. These opportunities are to be found by joining the Porsche Club of America, Upper Canada Region. We recognize the wide range of different interests and time availability of our 4,000 members, so our activities reflect this. A lot of club events are primarily social and enjoyed by couples, families and individuals alike. Others are designed to develop our driving skills and help us enjoy our Porsches to the full. Here’s an outline of the regular events that fill our annual calendar:
Monthly Socials 2nd Tuesday of every month. A great way to break the ice and meet other members in an informal social setting. There’s always food served and often an informative, entertaining guest speaker.
Fun Runs Meet up with other club members for planned drives through Ontario’s beautiful countryside with scheduled stops for coffee and lunch. So simple – just register, show up and have fun. You may want to consider our rallies and tours, too.
Driver Education If you want to learn how to get the best from your Porsche while improving your driving skills, sign up for our one-day Introductory Driving School and then on to our Driver Education weekends at CTMP (Mosport). You’ll be safe in the hands of our highly skilled instructors as you develop your skills on this great track.
Autocross Another way to improve your driving skills is to spend a morning developing control and balance as you weave through various configurations of cones. Great fun and quite addictive.
Monthly Magazines Lots of useful Information, pictures and stories in “Panorama”, from head office and “Provinz” from your own Upper Canada Region.
Web Sites Visit this, our Upper Canada Region web site, at www.pcaucr.org for up to date news, information and classified ads. See also our parent organization’s web site, www.pca.org , where you can learn what’s going on across N America.
Other events include Ski Day, several charitable activities, technical sessions and more. As we said, something for everyone.
As much as we enjoy the sight of a parking lot full of beautiful Porsches, and as much as our common interest is based on ownership of a Porsche, we stand by our motto, “It’s not just the cars – it’s the people”. So we invite you to open the door to new experiences and fun with the friendly individuals and couples of all age groups and backgrounds that comprise our membership.
It’s easy to join. All you need is your Porsche’s VIN and a credit card to pay the USD46 membership dues. Then just click here to go to the Membership Application page on the Porsche Club of America’s web site.
Give it a try. You’ll get so much more from your Porsche experience.
