Hello Riverside Region:
Wow, our First Annual New Member’s Tour hosted by Ed Maurer was enjoyed by 30 members. MasterShield, Palm Desert, provided detailed information on their body and paint protection products by showing actual examples on Porsches. They also provided some delicious treats for all to enjoy.
Ed then led the group on a brief ride to a late lunch at Bucatini in La Quinta, where both new and old members had a chance to break bread together – – – lots of fun, and many thanks to Ed for accomplishing this tour.
Next, on March 22, David Stewart will be hosting a Tour, Hike and Lunch. This will also be a fun event. A nice drive on paved roads through the Desert hills, followed by a 2-mile roundtrip easy hike to the Whitewater Preserve, where we should see some magnificent wildflowers. David will then take us on a drive through the old section of Palm Springs, followed by lunch at Lulu’s Bistro. Registration is on MotorsportReg.com – use the event link http://msreg.com/TourHikeLunch to sign up.

- I have been asked if we could post who will be attending each of our RsR tours. The answer is that the attendee list is included with each of our tours. However, you must first sign-in to MotorsportReg.com, then access the tour. When the tour page is displayed, you will see a box labeled “Attendee List” on the right-side – – – click on “View current Entry List”.
- A few members have asked to pay the RsR tour registration fees by cash or check. Although we prefer that you become familiar with MotorsportReg.com and use that vehicle for payments (it makes it a lot easier for us to handle money and bank deposits), you can contact the organizer for each Tour that you wish to participate in, and make the appropriate arrangements for payment.
Please remember that if you are planning to attend the Porsche Parade in Monterey this June, registration opens on April 1. It should be a spectacular event.
On Saturday, April 5, we will have our Monthly Breakfast Social Meeting at Gramma’s Country Kitchen. Hope to see you there !!
Also on April 5 and 6, is the California Festival of Speed at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. Several of our members will be displaying their cars in the four-cylinder Porsche display, and many others are planning to either attend the event after our Saturday breakfast and/or on Sunday. If you go, please note that if you are traveling west on the I10, that the Cherry Ave exit is closed for repairs, so get off early on the Citrus Ave exit going north, and then take a left on Merrill Ave to the Speedway.
On Thursday evening, April 17, Precision Motion will host another informative Tech Session. Check our Calendar for details.
Then on April 26, John Soler will be hosting the annual Idyllwild Tour and Breakfast, which is a drive up the mountain, followed by breakfast at Café Aroma – – – which is beautiful this time of year. To register, use the event link http://msreg.com/IdyllwildTour
On May 3, we will have our monthly Breakfast Social Meeting at Gramma’s Country Kitchen.
Then a week later, on May 10, we have our California Porsche Restoration Tour and Lunch. Bob Vose will be hosting this tour, which had been postponed from last year. The CPR team really knows how to restore Porsches. If you were at the recent Porsche Swap Meet at the Phoenix Club, you may have had a chance to view some of their great work.

Lastly, if you are a racing fan, you must see “1”, which is a film documentary on the history of Formula 1, its racers, its cars and the owners. Absolutely fascinating and well worth the view.
