Sacramento Valley Region News

Sacramento Valley continues to be one of the highest visited sites in PCA. We generally average 15,000 to 25,000 hits per month. We can thank our members but also many from around the world for these ratings. Next month SVR will be transitioning to a new website. Don’t worry we’ll still have all of the information that our visitors are looking for, including links to the award winning Drifter magazine, news and events hosted by our region, as well as PCA national, Zone 7 and many of the surrounding regions. A goal that I have set as the webmaster is to become a place for Porsche news for Porsche people.

02 Carrera Photo taken in Land Park

Are you a budding Hemingway? Our new site lends itself to a higher participation by our members, including contributors to the site content. We also plan on actively pursuing and posting photographs from our members. There are two things that are not on the calendar yet that we plan on doing later spring and summer. How does having a drone photo of our club, members and cars all at one place sound? How would you like your car photographed? Some of you may have seen the photos of Porsches I place on the corner of the site. I would like to photograph your car. We can run it natural or with a little touch up. If you are interested, contact me at webmaster@svr-pca.org

Tour of the TRG Facility

We started at The Racer’s Group in Petaluma for a tour of their racing facility. Kevin Buckler and crew gave us a warm reception and a little history of his business. Then out to the shop to look at the cars and where the tuning takes place…. Did I mention doughnuts? The group quickly split up into two groups. The wives went toward the bling rack and the husbands proceeded to the engines and tires. However, it didn’t take long to get anyone asked into a race car. A couple of men did make it into the car but were quickly pushed aside by the motor aficionados. TRG has a very interesting history. Now settled at their home in Petaluma they have added wine to their menu. We do believe in eating, drinking and driving. All in moderation of course. Kevin and group opened Adobe Winery on the wharf downtown. And there were cars…
Blue cars.. White cars !

Welcome

Welcome to Sacramento Valley Region’s award winning website!  Our 1,000+ members belong to one of Northern California’s largest and most active Porsche Car Clubs.  Step inside and look around.  Perhaps you’ll find something that interests you, and even better, perhaps you’ll join us!

Member Larry Wilson wrote that we started meeting in an elementary school auditorium in early 1962 with thirty five Porsche owners.

This year we celebrate our 55th year and are able to introduce our official SVR 55th Year  badge, courtesy of Bob Cannon. You can read Larry’s entire article on our History page.
