Description The Chicago Region Porsche Club presents RADE, a novice driver school with an emphasis on safety, in Elkhart Lake, WI at Road America—one of the premier racetracks in the country. This program, held over the Memorial Day weekend, was developed to teach novice drivers 18+ the skills necessary to drive your sports Porsche (no SUVs or E-cars) at its limits in a safe and controlled environment. All students will be provided an in-car instructor to show you the proper “line” around the track, teach how the principles of accel- and deceleration impact your vehicle, and help you learn car awareness on this 4-mile, 14-turn track. Novice drivers are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to attend both the Precision Car Control Clinic and the Novice Day DE at Blackhawk prior to coming to this event. These events will help you get up to speed on the big track at Road America.

All drivers who have not driven Road America previously should attend the valuable, novice driver’s orientation meeting on Thursday, May 26th at 8p in the Siebkens Resort dining room, featuring veteran Club Race drivers John Ruther and Greg Turek, after which instructors will be assigned. Additional classroom sessions will be provided throughout the weekend.

Payment via club registration is required in full prior to event confirmation. Initial Early Bird pricing is $600 for Friday through Sunday, $500 for either Fri+Sat or Sat+Sun. No one day registrations are available. Discounts for 2 people sharing the same vehicle is at 75% of the offered rate.

Prices will increase on the following dates;
+$50 for all those NOT PAID by April 3rd
+$50 for those NOT PAID by May 15th

Cancellations must be via email to the event coordinator or registrar.
Cancellation Fees are as follows:
Prior to April 3 - No fee
April 4 - May 15 - $50 fee
May 16 - May 22 - $100 fee
No refunds after May 22, 2021 or for no shows at the event due to the cost incurred by the club to rent the track and put on this event!

Online waivers are required for all participants. Your entry will not be confirmed until the e-waiver is completed, and payment is made. Be sure to opt in for text communications to stay up to date with all event announcements.

We recommend booking your hotel room as soon as possible as this is traditionally a very popular weekend in this resort town. Mention PCA Chicago if booking at the Osthoff Resort to receive the discounted block room rate. Camping is not available as part of the PCA event, but Road America is hosting a family camping weekend - see their website for details on that option.

All applicable COVID protocols in place at the time of the event will be recognized and enforced.

INSTRUCTORS: To accommodate in-car instruction for novice drivers, please sign up as an instructor, if you are comfortable. Instructors will receive a non-transferable, non-divisible $75 voucher for 2 days and $100 for full weekend instruction that can be used toward another PCA Chicago track event or the annual holiday Dinner Dance. Instructors will be notified at least a week prior if a student will be assigned.
