Video: Join PCA Club Racing in the 2017 West Coast Series championship

Thursday, April 13, 2017

The PCA Club Racing West Coast Series is a points competition comprised of the all the PCA club races that occur on the West Coast. Historically, club racing in PCA has been most popular on the east coast, and this series was created in 2014 to encourage West Coast club members to take up club racing by providing them with the increased competition and sense of camaraderie that comes with having one's own competitive series. All PCA club racers are elegible to participate, and all entrants of any of the races in the schedule below are automatically entered into the series.

What is Club Racing?
PCA Club Racing is an organized race series for Porsche owners. The rules are similar to vintage racing. While it is amateur racing, it is true wheel-to-wheel competition and is therefore only for qualified, club race-licensed drivers. This distinguishes PCA Club Racing from autocross and time trial, in which you are racing against the clock, and from High Performance Driver Education (HPDE or DE), which is not competitive in any way.

PCA Club Racing was established around several guiding principles. First, there should be a class for all Porsche sports cars, including both street and modified cars. Second, the racing is to be fun, safe, and clean. Third, the organization and operation of club races is to be uniform, so that any racer may attend any club race and know exactly what to expect.

The gateway to club racing are the HPDE and time trial programs. The mission and purpose of these is to provide a safe, structured, and controlled teaching and learning environment on race tracks. And when you are ready to race, PCA Club Racing is ready for you!
