Zone 12 News: Updated event dates and SVRA at Sebring!
Category : News
Hope all is well in your world and you’re staying healthy. In the PCA world, there are a few updates to this year’s events, but we’re still doing our best to keep things going.
Here are a few new details about some annual events and a brand new event at Sebring this weekend – the SVRA SpeedTour!
March race at Sebring
There will NOT be a PCA Porscheplatz at the Sebring race in March (17th-20th)
Unfortunately, we will not have a Porscheplatz tent (PCA hospitality) at the Sebring race in March. As they did for the race last November, the track will have the Porsche and Corvette corrals set up in the traditional location (at the Turn 17 start to the front straight), but “we” (PCA) will not have a presence there or need Volunteers to run the corral.
If you bought a corral ticket, you’ll be parked there with other Porsche owners and can enjoy the race like you usually do. There won’t be an official PCA presence, but you’ll probably see a lot of your PCA pals there. If you need more details, check the Sebring website.
PCA’s Werks Reunion at Amelia Island, May 21, 2021 (TENTATIVELY)
At the moment, Werks is still on, tentatively. It’s held during the Amelia Island Concours weekend, so if the Amelia Concours organization cancels their event, then Werks will be canceled. But if it’s on, then we’re on!
Registration for Werks is currently set to open on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, at 12:00 PM (EDT).
Porsche owners interested in displaying their vehicles must register in one of two categories:
Porsche Corral — Display your cherished Porsche proudly alongside others in its model type. Corral participants are not considered in judged competition.
Porsche Judged Field — Compete against other owners to take home a Werks Reunion Award. Register early as this category sells out fast!
**please note that there is no spectator parking and all Porsche owners wishing to attend must register and park in the Porsche Corral.
Zone 12’s Annual Zonefest – MOVED TO LABOR DAY WEEKEND (TENTATIVELY); September 3-6, 2021
Zonefest is Zone 12’s annual all-Region bash, usually held during the start of summer, in various parts of Florida. We’ve had to delay it this year until Labor Day weekend (Sept 3-6).
Please plan to join us this fall in Melbourne. Thanks to our host Region — Space Coast – this is going to be an incredible weekend. Of course, all this is dependent on the health and safety circumstances at the time, but the plans are currently moving forward for a Labor Day Zonefest.
Registration will be on ClubReg, and will open sometime in late spring. Stay tuned for updates and keep checking the Zone 12 page.
OktoberFast at Daytona is back – bigger and better than ever! Our Zone 12 Club Race / DE / Autocross will be Oct 22-24.
We’re planning some fun new activities and events this year, while we’re at the World Center of Racing for the weekend. More details to come soon!
Registration for the Club Race, Solo Driver’s Ed and Autocross will be on ClubRegistration.net, and will open sometime in the early summer.
We’ll welcome back our usual team of Volunteers – and we’ll need even more help this year. We’ll use ClubReg for Volunteer registration.
If you live in the central Florida/Daytona area and you plan to go to OktoberFast, if you’re interested in more info about becoming a Volunteer, please email Raylene (Ray) Grynkewich at Raygrynk@comcast.net.
Stay tuned for OktoberFast updates as we finalize plans, and keep checking the Zone 12 page.
And finally … for some fun this weekend, check out the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) race at Sebring this Saturday (Feb 20)
The Everglades Region is planning to caravan to Sebring, from a rest area in the Fort Meyers area, right off of I-75.
There’s a lot going on at this great event, so plan to attend if you’re in the area! The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) returns to Sebring International Raceway on Saturday, February 20th.
Join fellow PCA members for a memorable day at this historic race track. Enter the “Hagerty / Cars & Caffeine Car Show” and be part of the SpeedTour weekend.
Sebring SpeedTour is one of the most popular events on the SVRA schedule, routinely drawing hundreds of vintage race cars from all eras, makes and models. The weekend features large fields and great competition in all SVRA race groups. Following the vintage races on Saturday afternoon, the pro Trans-Am series takes the track to qualify for their Sunday race.
