Here's your favorite PCA content from 2020

Tuesday, January 5, 2021

2020 was a difficult and unprecedented year. Due to the pandemic, the lives of even the most fortunate have changed in dramatic ways: We lost loved ones, spent more time at home, avoided human contact, and, of course, events were cancelled. It also meant most of us consumed a lot more media.

For PCA’s part, we noticed a considerable increase in traffic to the news section of our website and YouTube channel, so we’ve decided to highlight the five most popular web stories and videos of the year, as well as our newest live show, Tech Tactics Live.

Just as important to our members during these uncertain times were 12 exciting issues of our award-winning magazine, Porsche Panorama; the first PCA National Awards Ceremony, the expansion of our PCA Sim Racing league, and a full year of Members Making a Difference articles.

Most of all, we look forward to bringing you even better content in 2021. Happy New Year!

Tech Tactics Live, PCA's first live YouTube show

The idea for a live show filmed at the PCA National Office garage became a reality in 2020, fasttracked because of the pandemic. The show is our way to bring the Porsche and car communities together during a time when meetups and many other types of auto-related events were cancelled. Fortunately Tech Tactics Live is here to stay.

The first Virtual PCA National Awards Ceremony

Usually the PCA National Awards are announced during various banquets at Porsche Parade. This year's Parade was cancelled due to the pandemic, so we instead created this awards video, which was shown as a YouTube Premiere. That meant that, although the video was pre-recorded, viewers could comment in the live chatbox as the awards were given out.

PCA Sim Racing expands in second year

PCA Sim Racing was started in 2019, and little did we know that sim racing would become the de facto outlet for members who weren't able to race or attend track days due to the pandemic. With five racing series completed, PCA Sim Racing is here to stay.

Members Making a Difference completes first full year

PCA members are a charitable bunch, and our Members Making a Difference series of articles show how they help to make their communities better. Started in late 2019, it became a source of good news in 2020, a year when bad news was so prevalent.
