Touring Crew – Tuesday July 23, 2019

Thanks to ARPCA and Porsche Touring Crew member Dr. Jon Tucker, the PTC has been invited for a return drive and lunch at possibly the most desirable luncheon and golf location in the Pittsburgh Region – the picturesque patio at Nevillewood Country Club.

On Tuesday, July 23, PTC’rs will convene at a set-aside parking area at the Club and enjoy good conversation, a full bar and top-rated cuisine, with a commanding view of one of the award-winning Nevillewood fairways – a unique Summer vantage point enjoyed by golfers and non-golfers, alike. Participants will arrive between 11:00 and 11:30 am. Last year’s Nevillewood gathering was a big success, as PTC’rs in coupes, convertibles and SUV’s experienced sunny skies and great service from Nevillewood’s imaginative culinary team.

The Porsche Touring Crew is an ARPCA social group, and is always open to both ARPCA members and guests. The event is no cost; however, attendees pay for their own lunch.  Guests are always welcome. For more information, contact Tom Mueller (ermtcm@verizon.net, 412-651-4232) or Wayne Desbrow (wdesbrow@zoominternet.net, 412-860-5700).

MSR Registration closes on July 20

Saturday October 6th – AutoCross #3 – 8:00AM

Autocross (AX) gives you the opportunity to test yourself and develop your own skill set, as well as learn the limits of your vehicle in a safe and controlled environment. All events are based around a course made of traffic cones and each lap timed for every driver. Autocross events seldom see speeds in excess of 60 mph and there is no “wheel to wheel” competition.

AX is one of, if not THE safest and most INEXPENSIVE way to participate in MotorSports today!

Registration Opening Soon on MSR!
