ORPCA News - Updated January 25, 2023

The drive is a leisurely drive through the wine country and Willamette Valley. It is just shy of 80 miles and about 2 hours and 30 minutes driving time. We will meet at a Park in Beaverton, and then head south toward Cooper Mountain, through Midway, towards Yamhill, with a rest stop in Carlton. Then we travel west around McMinnville, south around Amity, crossing the Willamette on the Wheatland Ferry, then heading north to St. Paul for lunch. The route is mostly low elevation, in case of snowy weather there is an alternate route that avoids the higher elevations. We will gather at 9:00am and leave by 9:30am. Registration closes tonight, Wednesday, January, 25 at 7:00pm – here:  January SUV drive.  There is only 1 opening remaining. 
Please note any SUV is welcome.

Porsche Parade is PCA’s annual week-long convention. This year it will take place at the La Quinta Resort & Club (Hilton) in La Quinta, California (Palm Springs area) from June 18 – 24. There are dinners, special banquets, Concours, Autocross, Time -Speed-Distance (TSD), and Gimmick Rallies and Driving tours, along with special activities in the area. It is a great way to meet people from other regions. 
Registration happens in 2 phases:  Phase 1 is when you register for the event and then you can register at the hotel with the PCA pricing.  Phase II is when you can select banquets, tours, and other events. 
Parade Phase I Registration will open on Wednesday, February 1 at 9:00 am Pacific Time at the following link: https://www.pca.org/pca-login/parade-registration. At this time, you will have the ability to register for Parade.  Once you have successfully registered for Parade, you will be sent a confirmation email to book your housing via ConferenceDirect.  Please make sure to look over the room types on the website.
FYI – Parade Phase II Registration and the ability to select banquets, tours, and events will open Wednesday, April 5 at 9:00 Pacific Time. 

This class is recommended for any member who wants to lead a 2023 drive or tour and has never attended this class or led a drive. The class is also open to all members who want to learn about designing an Arrive & Drive, a Midweek Casual Drive, or a Multi-Day Tour for the 2023 season.  The class is limited to 12 people.  Complete information and a link to register are here:  Tours Class

The Spring tour is sold out with a waiting list, but we still have a few spots available on the Fall tour, October 6 – 9. You really don’t want to miss out on the Club’s premier driving tour! The 2023 tour will visit the Columbia River Gorge, the canyons of the Columbia Plateau, the rolling hills of the Palouse, the Snake River Canyon on a Jet Boat, the majestic Wallowa’s, and premier wineries in Walla Walla. Visit 2023 NW Passage
for the complete description of the tour and to register. Contact Jeff Gretz at [email protected] or 503.915.2364 with any questions.

We have recently added our ORPCA window clings to our Shop on the web. Go to: ORPCA Shop  to check the new product out. 

The Annual Tech Inspection is Saturday, February 25 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Justin Williams and Bryan Farley and the team at Matrix Integrated have graciously provided the AX group the use of their shop. This is only intended for our Autocross participants.  If you are new to Autocross this year, please come down. 
Full details on this event are here: Autocross Tech Inspection on Motorsportsreg.

Have You Seen My Keys?

Have You Seen My Keys? As we all get older, we’re probably often asking this question of our spouses, our partners, our kids, our pets, maybe even ourselves (it’s still ok to talk to yourself!). But in this tech article I’m not talking about car keys. Instead, I’m discussing your wheel lock key. Wheel locks and a coordinating wheel lock key?  I have those?  Most likely you do, all depending on

Oil Leaks into The Great Abyss

Oil leaks on an air-cooled Porsche. ORPCA was presented with a recent technical question: “I just had my Porsche in for servicing and was told my engine is leaking oil. But I’m not seeing any spots on the ground. Can you explain?” Depending on the Porsche model, the origin of an oil leak, as well as its severity, we find that oil can travel many different paths towards the ground,

Winter Tires Are For Which Season?

We’re well into spring now, but out of convenience, are you still driving around on your “winter” tires? There are numerous reasons why this is more dangerous than you might think, and why you should immediately have them swapped for your non-winter tires.
