In the Zone

In the Zone 

by Sandy Provasi, Zone 7 Representative

 

As I write this column, we do not know the extent of the lost and destruction to all in the North Bay. Fires are still burning and it will be some time before Redwood Region can let us know if there is anything the rest of us can do to help. We know some of our fellow PCA members have lost their homes and Porsches. I will keep you posted. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Redwood Region.

The final Zone 7 Autocross just happened at the end of October. Everyone is invited to attend the Zone 7 Awards Banquet on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 6pm at the Hilton Garden Inn, Fairfield. We will be presenting the class awards for the Zone 7 Autocross and Zone 7 Concours Series along with some special Zone awards. We will not have Club Race awards, as they will be racing down in Buttonwillow with Zone 8 that weekend.

Rennsport Reunion VI, will be held at Laguna Seca on September 27th-30th 2018. Tickets are on sale now (www.mazdaraceway.com) for the event and the corral. From the PCA site here is what Rennsport is: For those who may not know what, exactly, is a Rennsport Reunion, picture this: tens of thousands of car enthusiasts and hundreds of Porsches of all types on display and racing on track. Among the thousands of people scattered about the paddock and infield are famous race car drivers, engineers, designers, and company executives — basically the who’s-who of the Porsche world. Porsche, not PCA, puts on this event.

PCA will provide a hospitality tent with refreshments and presentations by Porsche insiders for members in attendance. More information will become available in the near future. PCA volunteers will be parking the corral Porsches by model at the event as in past years. Hope to see you in the corral.

Please check out the new addition to the Zone 7 Website thanks to Richard Chew at http://zone7.pca.org. Richard has added a place for photos and article’s from Zone events. Enjoy the photo of 82 Porsche on Shasta Dam.
