Cars will start to line up for the Parade laps when the corral opens @ 7:00 am. Please read carefully the attached information on Porsche only Parade laps which start promptly at 8:20, after waiver signing and mandatory safety briefing .Also attached is the most recent draft of the Platz schedule….Please note that events that  take place in the tent are in red. Race tickets and possibly corral passes are still available for purchase at the Sebring International Racetrack website.

May 26-28 ZONEFEST the crown jewel of Zone 12 events. Here is  a reminder from the North Florida Region team, who are hosting Zonefest this year over Memorial Day weekend in Tallahassee. Can you believe that it is already March 2nd  ?!?  That means there are less than 60 days until the cut-off date for the DoubleTree Hotel block of rooms being held for Zonefest 2017 in Tallahassee, FL over Memorial Day weekend this year.  So please don’t delay.  Make your Hotel reservations now!

And, if you still need to register for Zonefest, please do that now also.   The weekend’s program is engineered to provide a fun and exciting experience and its activities reflect the varied interests of PCA members themselves: competition driving, concours showing & judging, automotive mechanical and technical subjects, driving tours, fine dining and, most importantly, sharing the great camaraderie that PCA membership provides!
What more can we say, other than Register Today !

Visit the Zonefest 2017 website for links to both the Zonefest Event Club Registration and the DoubleTree Hotel Group Registration sites at http://nfl.pca.org/zonefest_2017.htm

And remember, PCA is “Fueled by Volunteers” and we’re still looking for some bodies to fill  open volunteer slots in various areas for Zonefest 2017. If you are interested, please check out the “Fueled by Volunteers” survey link, also on the Zonefest 2017 website.   We are assembling teams now!  ….Also visit the pca zone 12 website for more information about each activity and links to club registration and the host hotel.  http://emailer3.pca.org:80/UploadFiles/1Zonefest2017ScheduleofEventsrev123171.pdf
