Arrive and Drive
Arrive at a Starting Point and Drive!
Arrive and Drives usually take place on one Saturday a month from May until October except in August when the Summer Picnic is substituted on a Sunday. Enjoy some of the best driving roads in the five-county area. Each drive is roughly 60 to 100 miles in length and finishes in under three hours (unless otherwise noted). You often have an option to join the group for lunch. These are a great way to kick off the weekend and a fun way for new members to get acquainted with ORPCA.
To attend, bring your favorite Porsche (with plenty of fuel) and ideally, a navigator, to our start location. The start location and timing for each event is included in the specific event announcement. With an average of 40 to 50 cars, we often try to break into smaller groups rather than traveling in one long convoy.
Registration for Arrive & Drive events may be required. You are responsible for any costs to park during the drive and for your lunch. The route and final location are not announced until the day of the Arrive and Drive.
There is a mandatory signing of the Release and Waiver of Liability waiver form prior to departure, followed by a required participant meeting. At that meeting the Tour Leader will explain the safety rules, distribute the driving instructions, explain the tour directions and point out items on the route that need special attention. If needed, the Tour Leader will take a count of attendees who want to join for lunch in order to make reservations.
Finally, the assignment of attendees to driving groups and the respective group leaders and sweeps are announced. Make sure to touch base with your group leader and sweep and identify their cars so you can line up in the right group.
ORPCA has established a guide for Tour Etiquette; be sure to read this before each tour so you are familiar with the rules and process. We want everyone to have a good time and be safe. Knowing what is expected ahead of time will limit the potential for issues or conflicts.
