While not a PCA region event, we still highly recommend that you add Saturday, July 7 to your calendar. Join those of us not heading to Parade at the Gilmore Car Museum for the 7th annual DeutscheMarques event. It takes place on the grounds of the museum, and cars of all German makes, particularly our favorite, are welcome. There is judging of the cars, although you don’t have to take it seriously if you don’t wish to do so. The fun begins at 9:00 am and goes until 3:00. Drive your Porsche and help us to take over as the best-represented marque at the event! Spectator admission is $14.00 per person; children 11 and under are admitted for free.

For those of you inclined to test just well your Porsche handles, we offer the Inter-Regional Race of Champions (IROC), the longest-running multi-region autocross in PCA’s history. IROC 1, WMR’s event in the series, takes place at the US 131 Motorsports Park, just off US-131 at the Martin exit. No, we don’t use the dragstrip. What we do utilize are the racing trailer parking roads off to the side. Colin Carpenter, WMR’s own engineer and course guru, lays out a challenging run, compounded, of course, by some of those same orange cones that you’ve come to love on the highways and byways of Michigan during the non-winter season. We run rain or shine, with 6 timed runs on the agenda. That gives you plenty of time to adjust and turn a great time. No pre-registration is required – just show up with a helmet and you’re good to go! You can find more details here. You WILL have a good time!
WHEN: Sunday, July 1. Registration begins at 9:00
WHERE: US-131 Motorsports Park at the Martin exit off US-131
