Update by David S. Wallens to the Volkswagen Golf GTI project car
Apr 18, 2024 | VW, GTI, Porsche Club of America

Spring is here. Let’s race.

We’re running our Golf GTI on Sunday, April 21, with our local Porsche Club of America in Tavares, Florida. German Excellence supports the series.

Wait, you say, a VW isn’t a Porsche.

True, but the group offers a Fun class for other makes.

Registration closes this Thursday.

See you bright and early on Sunday.

And I realize this is a bit of a last-minute notice.

The lesson here? Keep an eye on your inbox.

I’m a member of the Space Coast region of the PCA so I regularly check their calendar.

This event is being hosted by the Orlando chapter of the PCA, hence a different calendar. I’m on their list, though, so I got the e-mail about the event.

I know at least one other GRMer will be there, too. We can hang. :)

lll be down in Venice autocrossing with Suncoast PCA and finally trying out the re71rs on the GTI. I think the May Suncoast event is on a different date from Citrus region PCA so I might do both.

I am guessing this is a regular location. Makes me happy, that's only like 70 minutes from the new place, so much like me going to grissom but with some shade and real bathrooms

It is a regular site. The Martin Sports Car club uses it, too.

And here’s what the Tavares site looks like.

We autocross in the big rectangular pad and grid on the smaller rectangle beneath it. We paddock on the mini road course. One of the buildings has bathrooms. There are shady places to hang, too. Can’t go on the gun range, though, and no parking on the grass.

The site was recently repaved, and we just started running there again. It was slippery but you could gather it back up. Eager to see how it feels this weekend. 

 

You'll need to log in to post.
