Porsche Club Announces Autocross Kick Off

Yes, just about any car can autocross. Even a FIAT Abarth on 3 wheels, as demonstrated by NMS a few years ago at Little Creek Virginia. Shoot, you can even get on 2 wheels sometimes!

On April 7th the Carolina Region Porsche Club of America kicks off their first autocross event of 2024. Plan now to sign up and then make your way to Greensboro NC for some car-tastic fun! We'll be in one of the parking lots at the Greensboro Coliseum, so while it might also be fun to drive INSIDE the coliseum, there is likely just a bit more room outdoors.

No extra style points for trying to match your shirt with your car. 
Unless it's red. Red is the fastest color. 

You don't have to drive a Porsche, and you don't have to belong to the club. Heck, you don't even have to have a car, but trust me, your time will be faster in a car. What I mean is that you don't have to drive your OWN car. You can team up with a friend or even some person you don't know, and take turns driving the same car! 

Autocross gives you the lowest cost competitive driving event that I know about, not counting your private drag-race vs. the Highway Patrol, or any kind of dangerous street racing. So far, these cars are signed up in my class: 

Four drivers signed up so far, and 3 of us have the same 2009 year car (Boxster/Cayman) and the same engine, and the 2015 Cayman has 10 more Horsepower. Sounds very equal, so we'll see how the drivers do! 

Registration is on the website, where you have to create a FREE account, and then find the events for the Carolinas Region Porsche Club of America.
