PCA Club Racing
The PCA Club Racing Program is designed to be fun, safe and competitive! It is governed at the PCA National Level such that good sportsmanship, honesty, and a sense of fair play prevail.
PCA Club Racing offers a chance to test your competitive driving skills in actual wheel-to-wheel competition – down the straights, when making late breaking moves into a corner, and essentially anywhere else on track. That said, PCA Club Racing Rules are strictly enforced to discourage contact and rough driving such that racers participate in a highly competitive but clean racing series. .
Established in 1992, PCA Club Racing is based on the premise that every Porsche is a good race car and can be grouped into categories for competitive racing against similar Porsches. There are two categories of cars:
1) Stock Classes which are essentially street cars with minimal modifications
2) Modified Classes which are comprised of extensively modified street cars, or factory race cars.
CVR is a Club Race plank holder having hosted a race at Lime Rock Park every year since the start of PCA Club Racing. In 2010, twenty-nine (29) PCA Club Races are scheduled at different tracks across the United States and Canada. Approximately 2,500 PCA members are licensed Club Racers, of which 113 are CVR members.
