Matt is the owner of Speed Sports, has been involved with racing for over 20 years and is an ORPCA member. Matt will point out some of the high performance features of the GT3 Cup cars and highlight the differences between the Porsche race car and the road-going Porsche. In addition, there will be an informative presentation on Porsche restoration with a first-hand look at some stunning results from Matt’s shop. As a grand finally, Matt and the gang will take us on a tour of his car photography studio where there is a chance to win a personal photography session for your Porsche.
This is a high-revving and popular tech session and one you shouldn’t miss. Breakfast goodies and coffee will be served. Additional information about Matt and Speed Sports can be found at www.speedsportsracing.com.
The 2016 Autocross Season is Finally Here
Registration for our 2016 Autocross Season Opens January 22, 2016. This season we are offering the Championship Series Pass (CSP) which is on sale now. This pass has a onetime cost of $40.00. In return you get a 20% discount on all autocross events (except our Driver’s Skills Clinic), immediate entry into our Class Points Championship race, and more… Read more by clicking the links above.
The Autocross Team is sure glad the season is here! We’ve been going a little cone crazy.
So what has our team come up with this season to make your autocross experience the talk of the town???
For a start how about a new registration program which gives all our ORPCA members the capability to register any time starting January 22, 2016 for any or all events. How about a program which gives discounts to all our participants and eliminates the requirement of having to attend 5 events to qualify for our class championship point’s race???
REMEMBER – The cost of last seasons Trophy Pass?
REMEMBER – What discounts??? Right, there weren’t any.
REMEMBER – You missed the 5th event last year because you were called away on business, or was it you or a family member took ill.
What’s the catch you ask? You need to purchase a Championship Series Pass. The onetime cost is $40.00 and it needs to be purchased before you register online for any event. The pass is available NOW at our AXWare Store. Just log in and go to My Controls and click on Club Store. Fill in the quantity you want, 1 or more, and add to your cart. Proceed to Checkout, pay and you’re done.
REMEMBER – The Championship Series Pass is the only way you can earn class championship points.
REMEMBER – This pass eliminates the minimum event criteria toward the class point’s championship.
NOT CONVINCED – then how does a $7.00 discount on all autocross events sound?
If you knew you would only be able to attend one or 2 events in the 2016 season then the pass probably isn’t for you. You will not receive class points (attending only 2 events probably won’t put you in the running anyways) and you will not receive event discounts.
REMEMBER – You do not have to purchase a Championship Series Pass. You can still register for events online for the same price as last year: $35.00 for members, $40.00 for non-members.
The fine print is the pass is not retroactive from the date of purchase for points or discounts. The pass does not cover Driver Skill’s Clinics or other ORPCA sponsored events.
