Whats New:

ARPCA Announces the 2016 Driver’s Education Event Schedule!

This year ARPCA will once again be conducting four Driver’s Education (DE) events.   DE events provide you an opportunity to drive your car on challenging and iconic racing circuits in a safe, controlled manner accompanied by a PCA-certified driving instructor.   Our Driver Education events are all on the weekend with an invitation-only “Lapping Day” on Fridays for instructors and highly-experienced drivers.

Unsure if high-speed track driving is for you?   We offer a Car Control Clinic as well as a new Autocross School that are an excellent introduction to performance driving techniques conducted in a lower-speed environment.  Additional information on these events will be posted on ARPCA.com when details are available.

Click here to learn everything there is to know and what to expect from attending an ARPCA Driver Education program.

We are once again returning to our favorite circuits: Watkins Glen International, Pittsburgh International Race Complex and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Support material for track events (participant guide, track map, run-group assignments, etc.) will be posted when they are available.  Until then register early…

The 2015 Officer Slate

Office & Candidate

Introduction

President George Patterson Porsche People – I’m both excited and energized to be running for office of President. The past 2 years have gone by quickly. In that time, the club has accomplished a great deal. The most important is our element of inclusion. There is no person or no idea that goes unheard. We see new people at every event. More importantly, we see them again at other events. We have new events on the calendar [think: Opera, Ladies-Only, Touring Crew, Grand Concourse Concours etc.]. Our Driving events have never been better. 2015 will have 4 Driver Education Events and 3 AutoCross events. The website, email info-blasts and Rundschau are fantastic. Financially we are stable and have given more to charities each year. All that said, if you’ll have me for another year, I’d be honored to represent you as your club President. Finally, sincere thanks to ALL who make our events happen. It’s a great club. Thank you again. George
Vice President Tony SciulloTony Sciullo
Hello ARPCA members, I’m honored to be nominated as your next Vice Pres ,…Wow, humbling to say the least. I’ve been an avid member for almost 4years now and I’ve attended the majority of the board meetings in the last year. I’ve taken an active role in a number of club functions, foremost of which would be the PVGP. I’m on my 3rd Porsche (two currently), and I’m always planning my next Porsche. I’ve been a sports car guy all my life and I regard the Porsche as the nexus of practical and exotic . In other words the pinnacle of practical power and performance! So before this denigrates into some type of urban poetry , let me just say I’m well equipped with broad board experience and true passion for all things Porsche. Thank you for all of your consideration for this role .
– Tony Sciullo

Serving as Treasurer for ARPCA for the past year has flown by!  It has been a very successful year for the club and is positioned well to start a financially healthy 2015.  The event coordinators for the social events and the tracks events have done a great job keeping the events self-supportive financially and well attended.  That combination keeps our account healthy so that we can plan for a successful 2015.  I enjoyed serving as the Treasurer and thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people along the way.  Your support is greatly appreciated and I would be honored to serve as Treasurer in the upcoming year.
