Event Details

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 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, May 3rd, starting at 7:00 PM where you will learn the basics of safely driving on a race track and what to expect during the event. If you have never driven on a race track, attending this session is highly recommended. Access information for attending the session will be emailed to new drivers in advance of the session.

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.

This event is sponsored by longtime PCA Chicago supporter The Porsche Exchange in Highland Park, which will be providing an event souvenir and a free lunch (what’s not to like?)

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.
