PCA Chicago’s autocross mission is to provide a safe and structured environment in which to promote the development and improvement of driving skills. Autocross is a timed competition where drivers navigate through a temporary course created by traffic cones. Autocross places emphasis on car control, handling and driver skill rather than sheer horsepower. PCA Autocross has many classes which allow any model and vintage Porsche to compete with other Porsches exhibiting similar performance characteristics. The constant attention required for continuous precision turns, plus braking and accelerating, makes autocross one of the highest adrenaline motor sports you may ever attempt. At every event, we are treated to a unique course layout, with lap times in the 40-60 second range.

Three Friday events plus our two-day Oktoberfest weekend.

The season begins with our Novice Day event on Friday, April 26th. This event is dedicated to the novice driver. This is the event to attend if you are new to the club. We typically have 40 or more novice drivers at this event so in addition to learning how to handle your vehicle; it is also a great way to meet fellow club members. Again this year we will be incorporating one experienced group at this Novice Day event. This group is open to all who have previous track experience but have not reached the Instructor level.

The June 21 and July 26 events are open to novice and experienced drivers. Run groups will be based on driver experience. A novice group with both on track and classroom instruction will also be provided. A Special 50th BHF Anniversary event will be on June 21 - Stay Tuned!!

The season ends with the Oktoberfest two-day weekend event. This is open to drivers with previous experience. No novice instruction will be provided. The weekend event includes dinner party Saturday and pizza at the track Sunday.

Everyone that attended last year’s P&P#5 agreed that we needed to give the Marovitz Golf Course a 2nd try, but this year we won’t have to deal with the Lake Shore Drive construction and Chicago Marathon barricades.

Collectors' Car Garage
2500 W Bradley Place
Chicago, IL

Event Info PDF

You may have noticed I have set up our last 3 Porsches and Pastries at their last year’s locations.

Since the weather can be iffy in November, one of members Adam Kern suggested visiting Collector’ Car Garage on the West side of Chicago. CCG’s Facilities make a perfect venue for iffy weather because we can gather outside in their large secure parking lot if the weather is good or we (members, not cars) can head inside their 60,000 sq. ft. Dust-free Climate Controlled Garage if the weather turns bad.

Aaron Wallace, Head of Membership Development will be conducting tours of CCG.
