The Central Indiana Region of the Porsche Club of America is pleased to announce an exciting 3 day track event at Putnam Park Road Course, in Mt. Meridian, IN, on Friday – Sunday, April 26 – 28, 2024.  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 approved in previous events to drive completely solo - without an instructor).

Putnam Park has always been a great track for both novices and advanced drivers, providing a safe and challenging road course! The recently paved surface provides outstanding tire wear and wet weather traction!

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.  With significant open track time for these advanced drivers, this Friday event will be 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.

NOTE: SA 2010 Helmets are NO LONGER ALLOWED. 
Helmets must have either an SA2015 or SA2020 sticker to be approved.

PCA also requires anyone running 5 or 6 point belts to have a proper HANS device.

Student Registration: Registration is via www.clubregistration.net.  Search for Putnam Park events, and the dates of April 26-28.  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. 

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.
