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 events at the Virginia International Raceway. 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 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.

Save the Dates: May 30, 31 and June 1, 2014

Join the Shenandoah Region PCA for an enjoyable weekend full of exciting Porsche events in historic Richmond, VA. On Friday evening we'll gather to prep our cars at Dave's Auto Spa for the upcoming festivities and hang out and "kick the tires" at Euroclassics Porsche. Afterward, we'll head over to Belle Vie European Bistro for a great meal and some socializing.

Saturday will be a grand day! We'll begin the morning with a tops-only concours and a people's choice car show along the banks of the scenic James River, at the home of Tred Spratley and Janine Collins (our gracious hosts from last year). The fun will continue with the ever-popular catered lunch at "Cafe Carrera" and then a gimmick rally in the Richmond area, which will end up at Euroclassics Porsche for an interesting tech session. That evening we'll have an awards banquet with guest speaker Cam Ingram of Road Scholars, known for his prize-winning restorations of rare and collectible Porsches and other cars.

To top off this exceptional weekend and satisfy our need for speed, we'll have an autocross on the 1/3-mile banked oval track at Southside Speedway, with an optional boxed lunch.

Bring the whole family. All Porsche enthusiasts are welcome!
