2011 Mid Ohio Club Race and Driver’s Education

Mid-Ohio Region (MORPCA) presents their annual club race at Mid-Ohio Sport Car Course on May 13th through the 15th, 2011. This will be a three day event with practice on Friday; followed by Sprint and Enduro races on Saturday and Sunday.
Are you craving some track time? We have just what you need; an advanced three day driver education will run in conjunction with the club race. The drivers will run solo, with no instructors. However, our experienced and advanced instructors will be available for those drivers new to Mid-Ohio or for those who want some extra coaching. We can also provide limited instruction to racers that have not raced previously at Mid-Ohio.
Widely known as one of the most technical and competitive in the U.S., Mid-Ohio is a permanent road course with a 2.4 mile, 15-turn configuration. Among the track’s signature turns are the Keyhole, the Esses (Madness), Thunder Valley and the Carousel. This historic circuit has been home to many noteworthy road racing series for nearly half a century, including Can-Am, American Le Mans series, Formula 5000, IMSA GT, Trans-Am, Champ Car, and the Indy series. You will find the Mid-Ohio track to be challenging and rewarding. Smiles are no extra charge. New for this year will be Mid-Ohio Regions’ participation in the Wounded Warrior Program. We expect to host a number of our countries finest at the event and introduce them to the Porsche track experience.
For those looking for a little less intensity, come mingle in the paddock, enjoy a lunch from the concession stand and watch the races. We also welcome your participation as a volunteer. Online registration at will begin March 28, 2011. Please contact Event Chairman Ken

In The Zone – Feb 2010

By Ron Carr

Zone 4 Representative

Well, we are into the New Year and the Great Lakes Zone is mostly blanketed with snow, ice, and slush!! It’s time for doing indoor events and planning the outdoor ones. Most Regions have wonderful indoor events in the winter such as Chili Cook-off’s, Wine Tastings, new member parties, and other social events to keep up our spirits and provide an opportunity to (what else) talk about summer driving! Another popular indoor event is a Tech Session, usually held at a local Porsche service shop. Please check out you Region’s website for the latest local region events that may interest you. If you are traveling around the Great Lakes area and find yourself looking for something to do in another region area, check their website before going and see if there is something going on that would interest you. Generally speaking, PCA Regions will be happy to accommodate visitors from other Regions at their events if at all possible. It’s a great way to make new friends or catch up with some old friends that you only see in the summer.
