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.

NEW PCA REQUIREMENT FOR 2019 - regarding 5 and 6 point harnesses and HANS devices.
New for PCA DE events for 2019, if a car is using 5 or 6 point harnesses, the driver and potentially any instructor or student passenger, must be using an appropriate HANS device and HANS equipped helmet. The Chief Instructor will make sure that instructors assigned to student vehicles with harnesses have the appropriate equipment. If you are signing ups and your vehicle has 5 or 6 point harnesses, please be aware that you will be asked to show your HANS equipment at the onsite tech inspection. 

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.

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!

Central Indiana Region of the Porsche Club of America (CIRPCA) is hosting our annual Pumpkin Run Driver Education event at Putnam Park Road Course (www.putnampark.com) in Mt. Meridian, IN. on October 12-13, 2019. The driving season will be coming to a close soon, so why not close out the year with a great weekend of track fun!

Putnam Park is a favorite among racers and beginners alike.  The 1.8 mile, 10 turn circuit is a great layout for beginning drivers, yet challenging enough for experts to hone their skills. 
Our two day event will provide extensive track time, as well as classroom instruction. Beginning drivers and those with limited experience will have an experienced instructor in the seat next to you, ensuring that you learn the proper line around the track and safe driving technique.  All of our great instructors are dedicated to making your experience FUN & SAFE! At the conclusion of the weekend, you will go home a better driver and you will have a BIG GRIN on your face. 

If you’d like more track time, during the lunch break you’ll have the opportunity to participate in touring laps, at normal highway speeds.  The best part is that you can take family and friends with you for the touring laps, with no helmets required. This is a great way to refine your driving line, locate landmarks on the track, and increase your comfort level.

Onsite Tech Inspection and Registration runs from 4:00pm- 9:00pm on Friday, October 11th, at the Host Hotel - TBD.  For those unable to make it on Friday, tech inspections and registration will continue from 7:00-8:00am on Saturday morning at the track.  Student drivers (everyone other than instructors) are required to have a Tech Inspection Form completed by a qualified shop before presenting their cars for the onsite tech inspection and registration. Tech Inspection forms are available via the CIRPCA website or via clubregistration.net upon enrollment.
