Rockford Speedway
9572 Forest Hills Road
Loves Park, IL 61105

Event Info

This is a 1/4-mile, high-banked, asphalt race track sanctioned by NASCAR and has more than 60 years of history. The result: This place has character. Today the speedway is ours to have some fun and to improve our car handling skills. This venue is a bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip–as anyone who has driven here can attest.

The PVGP is one of only two vintage car races held on street courses in the USA. The races are held in Schenley Park which is just west of downtown Pittsburgh. The Allegheny Region of the PCA has arranged for our parking on the golf course and will host catered lunches on Saturday and Sunday. The Porsche parking area is literally 75 yards from the race course. The entire golf course is covered with cars from every nation. You can walk the course and see the biggest and most diverse car show you will ever see. And pretty much for FREE!

Gingerman Raceway
South Haven, MI

Event Info

The Chicago Region invites you to join us for our 21st annual Drivers Education weekend at GingerMan Raceway, which is located just outside the scenic Lake Michigan resort community of South Haven, Michigan. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, July 23rd and Sunday, July 24th. We hope you can join us for one of the season’s premier DE events.

GingerMan Raceway is a challenging 2.21 mile road course with 11 turns, a number of elevation changes, and plenty of runoff areas. Not only is it fun to drive, but it was built with optimal driver safety in mind, which makes it a great choice for less experienced drivers.
