WELCOME


Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education (DE) events at the Virginia International Raceway and other tracks. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several other social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

UPCOMING EVENTS


Party location Shenandoah Region's 20th Anniversary Party:
Join the Shenandoah Region PCA for a relaxed and fun afternoon. You are cordially invited to The Shenandoah Region of the PCA's 20th Anniversary Party and new member social on Saturday, July 25 at the beautiful home of members Steve and Denise England, near Lovingston, VA. New members, this is a great event for you to meet and get to know fellow Porsche enthusiasts while learning a little of the history of our club!

The theme will be honoring the founders and past leaders.

The fun will begin at the Mountainside Grille in Crozet, VA at 9:00 am for a little breakfast (if you wish), socializing, and oh, the cars. From there we will go on a scenic driving tour to the Anniversary Party at the Englands' farm. You may choose to skip the tour and go directly to the Party, which will start at 11 AM or thereabouts.

After we arrive, we will be treated to barbeque pork and chicken from the Blue Ridge BBQ Shack with all the fixin's, ice tea, lemonade, water, and of course, birthday cake.

Memorabilia will be displayed from the early years of our club to today. After lunch we will have a People's Choice Car Show and perhaps a few words from some of our founders about the beginning of our club.

The Englands' Farm is a beautiful setting with a 5 acre pond and views of the Blue Ridge Mountains that are hard to beat.

To protect the privacy of our hosts we ask that no photos be posted on the web or any social media. Please be mindful of their generosity in hosting us and allowing us to enjoy their farm for the day. It is truly a shame that society has evolved to this, but I am sure you understand.

FSR DE photo First Settlers Region Summer DE at VIR: Please join the First Settlers Region for their July 11 – 12, 2015 Drivers Education (DE) at VIR in Alton, VA. Both days will be on the VIR full course. This event is open to any driver 18 and over with a valid US-issued driver's license and with any make/model of car. On-line registration will remain open until June 26, but it is a good idea to register sooner in case the event fills up.

Are you new to DE and on the fence about whether Driver's Education is for you? Then register for their DE INTRO! For a $50 fee, they will get you onto the track in your car with an instructor for a single session mid-day on Saturday, July 11. Standard DE safety requirements apply, so you will need a Snell SA rated helmet. FSR has a few loaners available, so please email the registrar before you sign up if you'd like to borrow one.
