We will be strictly adhering to all social distancing policies in place at the time (e.g., masks may be required when outside the car; classrooms may be held outdoors; congregating in large groups / evening happy hours may be prohibited, etc.). For those who do not have their own in-car communicator headset - especially STUDENTS! - and want to purchase your own instead of sharing, you can try here but quantities may be limited. Stay tuned for additional COVID-related details as the event nears.

Join PCA Potomac for our 3-day PorscheFest DE at our home track at Summit Point's main circuit to celebrate all things Porsche!

Our hands-on, high-energy driver education program will give you the experience needed to learn how to drive your car toward the limits. We offer 90 minutes of track time per day, with 5 different run groups. Are you a beginner or starting out? Our Green and Blue Run Groups offer an assigned instructor who will ride with you in your car to help you learn how to drive your car fast while being safe. Did we mention there are no speed limits? We also have run groups dedicated to solo drivers, and if you are an advanced driver then you may be suited for one of our higher run groups with fast driving and extended passing (with a point-by) anywhere on the track.

The greatest part of Potomac PCA is the people, people that will help you with your car, and new friends to drive with. If conditions permit, we will host a happy hour on Friday and Saturday evening after the track shuts down. This is a great time to talk about the day's driving, boast about your day, or just get to know the people you are sharing the track with. Our motto "be safe, have fun, and learn" will certainly be remembered after a weekend with us.

Summit Point’s Main circuit offers a little bit of everything, long straights offering very high speeds, tight corners requiring braking performance, high-speed corners requiring skill, and enough elevation change to experience the effects of gravity. Summit Point also offers fuel stations (including high-octane racing fuels), large paved paddocks, and a restaurant. Summit Point events usually sell out quickly so register early.

Track Heroes will attend this DE! The Track Heroes organization assists vets and first responders in managing their PTSD by creating a positive experience associated with a stressful situation (creating an alternate pathway from the stimulus response by adding an option to cognitively process instead of having a typical PTSD response.)  Simply put, they are using the DE environment to rewire the brain.

Reminders: PCA Potomac is also a social club, and new participants are welcomed and appreciated by the entire DE community. Although we love our Porsches, we encourage other passenger car marques to participate. (SUVs and Trucks are not permitted by track rules. Firearms are not allowed during track events. No alcohol or recreational drugs while cars are on track.)  Our DE program does have a “13/13 rule” that can be used at the discretion of our region’s DE leadership in reaction to inappropriate or problematic behavior on the track or in the paddock. This can result in probation and / or “time out” from our DE events for 13 months with reassessment before return permitted.  So PLEASE, drive safe, smart and have a great weekend. As always, it’s not just the cars, it’s the people!

Registration Fee: $610 for drivers, $315 for instructors (both prices include cost of the dinner Saturday night!)

Potomac requires your car to be inspected no more than 30 days prior to the event (AND must be the only event for the car after getting that inspection!!)  Potomac may be offering a free tech inspection, please see Tech Inspections for more details and to download the required Tech form.
