Event Description

Driver's Education There are few thrills in life that rivals those of driving a performance automobile at high speeds.  Although enjoyable, the dangers and risks of driving much above the speed limit on American roads can have serious consequences.  Modern technology has given us cars with capabilities far above those required for everyday driving and so most drivers never really get to test their car's performance potential or their own for that matter.

The Alabama Region of The Porsche Club of America allows you the opportunity to drive at high speed in a safe and structured environment in our Driver Education Program, while making you a better and safer driver.  The PCA DE Program is run in accordance with the PCA Minimum Standards for Driver Education.  All of our instructors are experienced and certified by PCA.  This program is structured to allow totally inexperienced drivers to become familiar with the principals and techniques of High Performance Driving and put them into practice on the track under Instructor guidance.  This stepped program allows for students to rise to more advanced run groups as their skills progress.  With time and experience, Candidates may be signed off to run by themselves as Solo Drivers and, if interested, can be themselves trained as certified National PCA Instructors.

For over 20 years PCA has been fortunate to utilize the world famous road racing course at Road Atlanta as the home base for our outstanding DE program.  We look forward to you joining us for a fun weekend.  We are not responsible if you become addicted to this experience.  Actually, we hope you do and will become a regular participant with Peachstate and other Regions’ DE events!

For those who really feel the "Need for Racing", Porsche Club has developed their own Club Racing Program that has been running nationwide for over 18 years.  There are classes for all models of Porsche.  As a means to obtain a license for this series, Candidates must run required number of DE weekends and then be give a Sign Off Check Ride from the Region's Chief Driving Instructor before applying for their Rookie License and the Racing School Training Weekend.  For those racers with a license and experience in other venues, please contact the PCA National Club Racing Office to determine if you have a reciprocal license privilege.
