Zone 12 PCA: Big Events Coming Up!
Category : News
Holy smoke, it’s almost March! If you’re like me, you’re asking how the heck did that happen? Wasn’t new year’s eve just … yesterday? Based on the hoopla, 2020 is supposed to be as big as “2000, the start of the new millennium” – so if you didn’t quite realize the year’s almost a quarter over, it’s time to get started on those big plans of yours. And in the meantime, please come out and hang with your Porsche friends at these upcoming events in our little – and very exciting – part of the PCA world …
But before I get to that – as always, we had a great time and wonderful Volunteers for our first two big events of 2020: THANKS AGAIN TO ALL WHO HELPED US AT ROLEX 24 AND SEBRING 48!
March 6 (Fri): Werks Reunion Amelia Island
Next week is the 4th annual Werks Reunion at Amelia Island! It’s still the Friday preceding the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, but it’s at a new location this year – Amelia River Golf Club. As always, there will be 500+ beautiful Porches displayed in the Corral and Concours. It’s free to attend (except a parking fee), so try to be there if you can.
This is a casual gathering of Porsche enthusiasts focused on having fun rather than solely competition, so come on out and enjoy a great day of cars and camaraderie.
Schedule and details: http://werksreunion.com/amelia.cfm
March 19-21 (Thurs-Sat): SuperSebring – 1,000 Miles of Sebring on Friday / 12 Hours of Sebring on Saturday
Two weeks after Werks will be the SuperSebring Double Header WEC and IMSA races! The Porscheplatz car corral is sold out, but you can still come join us in the tent for good ol’ PCA hospitality. And once again, Porscheplatz ticket holders are eligible to take Porsche-only parade laps on Saturday morning.
Thanks to all of you who have already volunteered to help, but we still need more Volunteers.
Please email me if you know you’ll be at Sebring and can help! I’ll be finalizing the schedule soon, and we have a new need for a few Volunteers on Thursday afternoon as well. So, if you’ll be staying at the track and can help for a few hours on Thursday – or any day, please email me now.
This year, there will be two major races – on Friday and Saturday – and a 2-hour race on Thursday afternoon. Lots more fun … but that also means we’ll need extra help on Thursday and Friday.

May 22-24 (Memorial Day weekend): This year Zonefest will be on the east coast, in the Melbourne area!
Registration will be opening soon on ClubRegistration.net. Be on the lookout for an email blast when it’s time to register!
And finally, for anyone who missed Parade last year, I hope distance wasn’t an excuse, since the drive will be so much farther this year. But this year’s will be worth the trip, because there will be much better roads to drive! Even though it’s on the other side of the country, if you can make it out there in June, plan to go to Parade in Palm Springs. Phase 2 registration will be opening soon, on Tuesday March 31, where you’ll select the events and banquets.
Remember, it’s not just the cars, it’s the people … so get out there to meet other Porsche enthusiasts and have fun at some (or all) of these and your Region’s great events!
Hope to see you around soon!
