Porsche Club of America Chicago Region

April 26

Now’s the time to schedule some springtime excitement!  Driving your Porsche at speed on a track, in a safe and controlled environment, with an instructor sitting right next to you!

Blackhawk Farms Raceway, in South Beloit (near the Wisconsin/Illinois border), is a complex 1.9 mile, 7-turn track that provides an ideal learning environment that will keep you focused all day.

We typically have 40+ novice drivers, so this is a great way to meet fellow enthusiasts, learn the track, learn the car, and have a GREAT time doing it.  We also incorporate a group of more experienced drivers, so no matter what your experience, this is an excellent “season opener” for you track enthusiasts, or soon-to-be track enthusiasts.

This event is open to all sport cars that pass tech (Cayenne, Macan or other SUV’s, electric vehicles, and open-wheeled vehicles are not allowed) and to all drivers 18 and older with an emphasis on the novice driver.  This is the event to attend if you are new to the club and are interested in learning how to drive your car on a race track. Novice drivers get a morning and afternoon classroom sessions and in-car instruction.

This event also has an online classroom session on Tuesday, April 23rd, starting at 7:00 PM where you will learn the basics of safely driving on a racetrack and what to expect during the event. If you have never driven on a racetrack, attending this session is highly recommended. Access information for attending the session will be emailed to new drivers in advance of the session.

By the way, we’ll need instructors for our new or less-experienced drivers, but as a thank-you, volunteer instructors will receive a voucher for use at a future PCA Chicago event.
