Description The Chicago Region invites you to join us for our 26th annual Drivers Education Weekend at GingerMan Raceway in beautiful South Haven, Michigan.  This year’s event will be held on Saturday, August 14th and Sunday, August 15th and we hope you can join us for one of the season’s premier DE events.

Registration is open to all PCA members, as well as experiened non-members with an appropriate sports or high performance car that meets the Chicago Region’s 2020 safety requirements (Cayenne or other SUV's are not allowed). 

Novice drivers are welcome to attend and will be assigned to work with an experienced PCA instructor for the weekend.  However, please note that instructor availability for this event is very limited, therefore novices will be accepted on a first come – first served basis with PCA members given priority over non-PCA members. 
Group 1 will run with PCA Expanded Passing rules.  All vehicles and drivers in Group 1 must be in compliance with PCA Expanded Passing rules and protocols.

PCA instructors willing to help a novice student for the weekend will receive PCA Instructor Gift Vouchers redeemable at future Chicago Region events.  Maximum value of all vouchers may not exceed $100.

Please note! Late registration/payment fee: Event fee will increase by $60 if payment is not received by August 2.  Even if you are registered, but have not paid, the fees will increase after this date.  Please be sure to register and pay early to avoid this late payment fee!
