How to obtain a Club Racing License



Overview of PCA Club Racing Rules

Club Racing has classes for every type of Porsche. To be eligible, a car must have a Porsche chassis and drivetrain.  There are two types of classes: 

  • Stock (street cars with minimal modifications, all allowable modifications are carefully defined in the Rule Book)
  • Modified

Stock classes are formed from similar factory power to weight ratios, and cars must have complete road trim, stock drive trains, street tires, etc. Modified classes are defined by engine size, and are further split by street tires or race tires. 

Safety equipment requirements include: 

  • Roll cage meeting the minimum specs for the specific class
  • 5- or 6-point harness with proper seat
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Window net
  • External cut-off switch (can be installed internally, with an external pull wire)

Driver equipment includes helmet, suit, shoes, gloves, etc. The Club Racing Rule Book contains all specifications for safety equipment.
