Event Details

The Chicago Region Porsche Club presents RADE, a novice driver school with an emphasis on safety, in Elkhart Lake, WI at Road America—one of the premier racetracks in the country. This program, held over the Memorial Day weekend, was developed to teach novice drivers 18+ the skills necessary to drive your sports Porsche (no SUVs) at its limits in a safe and controlled environment. All students will be provided an in-car instructor to show you the proper “line” around the track, teach how the principles of accel- and deceleration impact your vehicle, and help you learn car awareness on this 4-mile, 14-turn track.

All drivers who have not driven Road America previously should attend the valuable, novice driver’s orientation meeting on Thursday, May 25th at 8pm in the Siebkens Resort dining room, featuring veteran Club Race drivers John Ruther and Greg Turek, after which instructors will be assigned. Additional classroom sessions will be provided throughout the weekend.

Registration for this event is exclusively at where the price schedule is outlined—including premium rates for Early Birds, discounts for 2-driver cars, golf cart rental and an event long-sleeved t-shirt (may not be available if not confirmed prior to May 12th). Online waivers are required for all participants. Your entry will not be not be confirmed if the e-waiver is not completed and payment is not made. Be sure to opt in for text communications to stay up to date with all event announcements.

Cancellations must be made via email to the event coordinator or registrar and will incur a nominal fee after April nd. There will be no refunds after May 19th or for no shows at the event due to the cost incurred by the club to rent the track to put on this event.

We recommend booking your hotel room as soon as possible as this is traditionally a very popular weekend in this resort town. Mention PCA Chicago if booking at the Osthoff Resort to receive the discounted block room rate. Siebken’s Resort and the Shore Club are also great options. Alternately, camping is offered through Road America’s website at

All applicable COVID protocols in place at the time of the event will be recognized and enforced.

INSTRUCTORS: To accommodate in-car instruction for novice drivers, please sign up as an instructor, if you are comfortable. Instructors will receive a non-transferable, non-divisible $75 voucher for 2 days and $100 for full weekend instruction that can be used toward another PCA Chicago track event or the annual holiday Dinner Dance. Instructors will be notified at least a week prior if a student will be assigned.
