Itching to go for a drive?

Now that spring has finally arrived, we are sure that all of our club members are keen to get their cars out for a drive. It is that time of year when we and our cars come out of hibernation and we want to get out on the road to blow out the cobwebs. Normally, your club would be promoting such activity and getting ready for our regular club driving season.

However, and it is a big however, unfortunately this year the situation is very different. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the current recommendation is to go out only for necessary errands or exercise and to not drive unless necessary, due to the potential of an incident which would then involve first responders and/or a tow truck, thus potentially increasing risk for all involved. Therefore, for safety reasons, PCA and Wild Rose Region are not hosting organized events until further notice. Also, seeing a line of Porsches on the road might create the wrong impression with the general public.

Obviously, going out for a drive is a personal choice but the club has made the decision that since we don’t recommend group drives right now, we ask that members not post such potential drives on the website. If posted, they will be removed. While this may be disappointing, we hope that you understand. Our goal is to help society at large get through this current situation, so that we can all regain our freedoms sooner rather than later.

In lieu of actual driving, please consider posting something on the forum about a great drive you have done or a drive that you would like to do, along with pictures of you and your car. Two COVID threads have been started up and both have had a lot of positive response. Thanks to Mike Darlow for starting a “Let’s see your car pics” thread and cam0141 for starting the thread “Wild Rose Represents at PCS Simracing at Silverstone”.

Stay safe everyone and we hope to see you out at club events in the not-too distant future.
