Plan to join us for the 47th season of this iconic inter-regional race of champions.  Next up is WMR’s event, which will be held at Kentwood Community Church. No experience required, but a Snell-approved (2005 or later) helmet is.  And by the way, if you’ve got some friends who don’t have a Porsche but are interested in participating, they’re invited too. No pre-registration required; just plan to show up and have a great time!

WHEN: Saturday, July 31, 2021; registration and tech inspection opens at 9:00 am
WHERE: Kentwood Community Church, 1200 60th St SE, Kentwood, MI 49508

Red Barns Spectacular

Hey Gilmore Car Museum fans – it’s closing in on the first Saturday in August. And as many WMR members know, that means it is time for the Red Barns Spectacular. This is the “grand-daddy” of antique, classic, and special interest car shows, and it is taking place in our back yard. As always, WMR will have a Porsche corral, although this year it may be in a different location. Please plan on arriving as early as possible if you want a spot in the corral. You may also enter your 1996 or older Porsche for the People’s Choice awards. You can find more details by clicking here.

WHEN: Saturday, August 7, 2021 – gates open at 7:00 a.m.
WHERE: Gilmore Car Museum, 6865 W. Hickory Road, Hickory Corners, MI

German Auto Service Open House
