Track Opportunities in South Florida
Porsches have always been bred for the race track. So it’s only natural that PCA members look for opportunities to test themselves and their cars at the track. We are blessed to have Sebring, a world renowned circuit in our backyard and Homestead Miami Speedway a short drive across Alligator Alley. Driver Education (DE) or High Performance Driving Events (HPDE) offer an opportunity to learn to drive on a real race track. You typically drive in a run group of similarly skilled drivers and, if you are new to DE, an instructor will be assigned to guide you through the entire process / course. You will acquire the knowledge and develop the skills needed to drive safely at a high rate of speed. The goal is to have safe, high-speed fun.
Although Everglades Region is not currently hosting DE or HPDE events, our members can register for events hosted by other PCA regions and track day groups. There is significant cost to rent a track like Sebring and a core team of enthusiast, volunteers are needed to run the program and instruct. We don’t have that critical mass yet, but do have potential to co-sponsor with another organization. We’ll keep you posted as that develops.
In the interim, interested Everglades Region members are referred to our neighboring PCA regions. Suncoast Region ( http://suncoastpca.org ) and Gold Coast ( http://www.goldcoastregion.org ) frequently host events. In addition, PBOC Motorsports Club ( http://pbocflorida.com/ ) and Chin Motorsports ( http://www.chinmotorsports.com ) schedule events locally and nationally. Full schedules and details are available on their respective websites. Once registration opens, you need to act fast since these programs fill quickly. Here are some of the upcoming events in South Florida:
|February 23-24||Suncoast/ Goldcoast||Sebring|
|March 24-25||PBOC/ Goldcoast||Homestead Miami|
