Midweek Casual Drives
The Midweek Casual Drives are meant to bring Porsche enthusiasts together as they enjoy their great cars. Some ORPCA members are retired or have freedom in their work schedule to participate in these mid-week drives. The drives themselves are aimed at enjoying the regions paved country roads in a relaxed driving style. Prescott Kelly, a Porsche aficionado, recommends driving our cars at least 50 miles until the oils, lubricants and systems are operating at designed temperatures for a period of time. Our mid-week drives are usually 50 to 100 miles, sometimes more, and terminate at a lunch stop. We go rain or shine.
The drives are designed so that you don’t need a navigator. If your significant other can’t go, no problem, come and join us. Do you need a Porsche sports car? No, your Porsche SUV or sedan is fine. If your Porsche’s are in the shop, come out and hop in a Porsche that has an open seat. If you are a potential ORPCA new member and want to start checking us out. Join in!!
These casual drives started in 2015 with two cars, David Lee and Joe Kelly. In 2016 the casual drives expanded to six monthly events, scheduled at the tourmeister’s convenience. These are published at least two weeks in advance.
In 2017 we are shooting for seven drives, one a month, starting in April and going through October. The 2017 drives will explore a wider geographic range. Tentative plans include several drives to the Oregon coast, a dinner cruise, a couple of drives near the Columbia River and Washington and one or two around Salem/McMinnville. If you have the time and want to enjoy exercising your car with like-minded enthusiasts, join us.
Please let Joe Kelly know if you plan to attend as he needs an approximate head count for the lunch stop: firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile phone number 562-587-3090.
The October midweek casual drive will be October 17. For details please go to: October Midweek Casual Drive
