Central Indiana Region PCA Spring Brake Drivers Education 2019
04/26/19-04/28/19
CIRPCA Spring Brake Driver Education

PLEASE READ BELOW FOR REGISTRATION DETAILS

Sponsored by TOM WOOD PORSCHE

The Central Indiana Region of the Porsche Club of America is pleased to announce an exciting 3 day track event at the newly repaved Putnam Park Road Course, in Mt. Meridian, IN, on Friday – Sunday, April 26 – 28, 2019.  Saturday and Sunday will be a traditional Driver Ed program, open to drivers of all levels, driving any make of vehicle, from 1st time track drivers thru advanced drivers.  Friday will feature open lapping for advanced drivers (those who have been cleared to run in a solo run group for a previous event).

Putnam Park has always been a great track for both novices and advanced drivers, but 2019 should be especially exciting because Putnam Park experienced some small pavement issues in 2018 with the last repave and because of this, has recently undergone ANOTHER COMPLETE REPAVING OF THE ENTIRE TRACK! In 2018, participants noticed far less tire wear than the previous surface. In addition, wet weather traction is outstanding!

Friday, April 26th will be open for any advanced drivers, who have previously driven in either the Instructor, A or B groups with CIRPCA, or other advanced driving groups in other organizations, who do not require an Instructor.  We anticipate between 3 – 4 hours of open track time for these advanced drivers.  What a great way to enhance your skills, with lots of time on a less crowded track!

As always, our Saturday and Sunday DE event, features lots of track time, along with classroom training, to ensure everyone goes home a better driver.  It is open to all licensed drivers, 18 and over, driving any make vehicle. Membership in PCA is not a requirement! Instructors will be provided for all drivers at the beginning or novice levels. 

As always, participating vehicles require the completion of a Technical Inspection form by a qualified mechanic (inspected and signed no early than 30 days prior to the event) before presenting the vehicle at the track for final inspection.  Final on-site tech inspection will be available on Friday morning at the track, and again Saturday morning at the track. Drivers must bring their completed and signed tech forms to one of the onsite tech inspections. Tech forms are available on the registration website and also on the CIRPCA website by clicking on the Driver Ed icon. More details will be posted at a later time.

Student Registration: Registration is via www.clubregistration.net.  Search for Putnam Park events, and the dates of April 27-29.  If you are new to Club Registration, you will first need to establish an account (no cost), and create a personal profile, which includes your relevant driving experiences. 

The event fees are as follows:
Cost for the 3 day event (advanced drivers) is $600. 
Cost for the Saturday – Sunday event for all students is $425. 
CIRPCA Approved Instructors may register for Saturday and Sunday for $125.
One day may be purchased for $250.

Instructor Registration: Anyone registering to instruct must be an approved CIRPCA instructor. Questions here can be directed to the registrar. There may be some time Friday and during the weekend to evaluate and coach advanced drivers that may be interested in instructing in the future. Anyone interested can please reach out to our Chief Driving Instructor - Doug DeArmond at douglas_dearmond@yahoo.com.

Helmets: Only Snell certified helmets, carrying a 2010 or 2015 sticker, will be allowed.  A limited number of rental helmets are available, via the clubregistration website at $65 for the entire weekend.

Garage Rental: a limited number of single bay spaces are available for $150 for the entire weekend.  All garages are 1st come, 1st served, and may be reserved via Clubreg. Vehicles can be left in the garage for the weekend and there is power & compressed air available.

Northern Ohio Region PCA Nelson Ledges 2019 High Performance Driver Education & 944Fest Sponsored by Porsche Beachwood
08/02/19-08/04/19
The Northern Ohio Region PCA will be running a High Performance Driver's Ed event at Nelson Ledges open to all marques and all skill levels!

Nelson Ledges is back!!! Nelson Ledges has always been a local favorite with a rich racing history.  However, as the track condition continues to deteriorate, many of us were worried it would become a ghost.  Fortunately, a hardcore car enthusiast family has purchased the track and is completely rebuilding the facility.  Most importantly, they stripped the track down to the road bead and completely repaved it.  The also added apex curbing and will be adding exit curbing soon.  Nelson has always claimed to be the fastest 2-mile track in the country, and after taking some laps on it, I can verify that it lives up to that claim.  The track is wickedly fast - the new pavement has tons of grip and the new curbing allows you to attack the corners much more aggressively than in the past.

In addition to the new track surface, they have been steadily improving the facilities as a whole., The are pouching back the wall in several places to provide more runout and make things safer, all of the ramshackle buildings have been torn down, and there are new bathrooms with Air conditioning!

This will be a standard weekend HPDE, but will also be hosting the 944Fest event once again on Friday.  If you are participating in the 944Fest - register with the 944Fest guys after signing up for the track event portion here: http://www.944fest.com/sign-up.html

We will also be having a huge cookout at the track on Saturday as soon as the track closes at 5:00.  Anyone who has ever come to this event can attest to the fact this is a party not to be missed.  Great food, kegs of beer, wine, and a bonfire and Chinese lantern sendoff after it gets dark.  Camping is available and is always a popular option. 

See you in August!
