Description PCA Chicago will be hosting a Drivers' Education event at Road America over Labor Day Weekend, Friday, September 3 thru Monday, September 6, 2021

For 2021, there will be two DE run groups daily (except Monday), each with limited capacity. A sell out is expected. DE registration packages are for all four days of the weekend and holiday. Please read this full event description for important details.

Only experienced drivers will be permitted to register, no novices or instruction provided. Registrants should have previous experience at Road America, or extensive experience at other tracks. The DE is open to Porsche sports cars only (no Macans, Cayennes or other marques). Priority will be given to PCA Chicago members until July 30th, if payment has been made to secure the spot. If you are outside the region, please feel free to register and pay event fees prior to this date to be given priority for confirmation.

The preliminary schedule has five DE sessions Friday, three Saturday, three Sunday for each of the two run groups and two (combined) on Monday. As you are able, between sessions, please volunteer to help with Club Race gridding in the staging area. We could use all the help we can get!

Standard belts and seats are permitted. If you drive with a harness system which secures both shoulders you must wear a HANS device, per PCA’s “Head and Neck Restraint Systems” requirement, effective 2019.

Club Race registrants may NOT register for the weekend DE sessions (Friday - Monday). Instead they may register for the optional Friday Racer Only Lapping Sessions (under PCA DE Rules). A separate registration is required. Information and register here TRAC Racer Only Lapping Sessions

NOTE: All parking on paved surfaces in the Main Pit-Road paddock, Upper RV paddock, and North Paddocks are reserved. Please contact Stanley Sangdahl at trac.parking@pca-chicago.org with your parking requests. The 36-15’x30’ Lester Garage stalls near turn 14 in the North Paddock and the 13-16’x40’ Hagerty Garage stalls near turn 1 in Main Pit-Road Paddock are rented directly through Road America. Please contact Bridget Beck from Road America at blage@roadamerica.com and then inform Stanley you have rented a stall so he can reserve a space nearby for your rig (15’x80’ space in front of stall for Hagerty garage).

This year, post-COVID craziness, we will be returning to our traditional Saturday night escorted old road course Porsche Parade, car show and buffet dinner party at Siebkins in downtown Elkhart Lake. One dinner ticket is included for each DE driver. Additional dinner tickets can be purchased for family and friends on ClubRegistration.net when registering for the event. Note that racecars participating in the parade MUST have working headlights!
