“My dreams since I was a young man.”
Welcome to the Porsche Club of America Riverside Region (PCA-RsR)
Every month we have a permanently scheduled breakfast event on the 1st Saturday of the month in a central location within the region. Our activity calendar also includes drives in our Porsches, interesting tours, tech sessions, and after breakfast events.
Attention Club Members!
Do you have pictures from past events?
Email them to PCARSRhistory@yahoo.com for inclusion in our archives and to be shared with other Porsche enthusiasts online.
Members, if you have picures from an event please email them to PCARSRhistory@yahoo.com for inclusion in our Event Spotlight.
We are one of the largest geographical areas within the PCA Zone 8 of Southern California, and we represent over 830 members.
We can also help you with information about your car regarding services and discounts available at our Region’s Porsche dealers and independent service and parts vendors.
We hope to see you at one of our numerous events soon. Even if you are not yet a member of PCA, come on by and “kick some tires” and join the fun!
Since I took office in January, my goals were simple but aggressive. They included increasing Membership, understanding the Autocross program, bringing back our newsletter, continuing our calendar of events, updating our website, evolving more members, and having more drives and social events. I am happy to say most of these items have been achieved and will continue to be improved upon. Our membership has grown to over 840 active and affiliate members, our Autocross Program has grown to be the best in Zone 8 due to Kraig Strom’s direction. We now have three (3) Breakfast Meetings, our original meeting in Banning, our Palm Springs/Palm Desert, and our Temecula/Murrieta, check the calendar for the dates of each. Our newsletter was brought back by Barbara Berzon and has led to the revival of the Gedanken Newsletter published by Carl Laufer. Continuing to keep our members up to date with a yearly calendar and redoing our website led by Tibor Farkas, to again bring information to all our members. Finally having more drives and social events and having a Year End Party that members will never forget, so mark your calendars as Barbara Berzon is holding nothing back at this event.
The Riverside Region is on the move and to continue these events it takes many people who volunteer their time to make our Region what it is. Don’t be bashful, join in on helping on an event, whether it be autocross, a driving tour, getting advertisers for our Gedanken, there is always some way you can help. Remember it’s not the cars, it’s the people.
As another side note we are always looking for places of interest or excitement for our drives, and also looking for places we can donate to, where that donation would make a difference. Contact Tibor Farkas or myself with any suggestions.
I do want to acknowledge Riverside Porsche and Ontario Porsche for their tremendous support of our Autocross Program and the Club, without them we would not be able to do the many things we currently do.
We are now approaching the time to elect a new board for our club, so give some thought of who you think would be a good board member or how you could help. Our ex-President Xavier Palmer is in charge of our nominating committee, so please contact him with your thoughts.
In closing we still have 2021 to finish, and the events include Autocross, numerous driving tours, New Member Poker Run, and our End of the Year Installation Party, so join in and have fun.
