• Lone Star Resion PCA Get Together (GTG)
    In an effort to provide more opportunities
    for members to meet on an informal basis.
    LSR is encouraging participation in weekend
    morning meet-ups for coffee. Currently we
    have events in Spring (NW), Woodlands (N),
    Piney Point (Central), Friendswood (SE),
    Galveston (E).
  • High Speed DE
    A DE is a chance for you to drive your car
    in the controlled enviroment of a track
    setting. DE event are usually held on
    the 2.9 mile long. 15 turn road coarse at
    Texas World Speedway, located near College
    station, Texas. From time to time the track
    layout may change to provide a new format.
  • Car Control
    If you are new to the world of Porsche or
    an experienced driver but unsure of your
    vehicle's capabilities and your ability to
    control and enjoy it, the Lone Star Region
    offers its Car Control School. The
    instructional activity provides you with
    survivability skills that apply both to
    everyday driving and the track environment.
    We want you to be comfortable and enjoy your
    vehicle, no matter what situation arises...
  • Concour
    A Concours d' Elegance is an assembly of
    autos in competition on their relative merits
    in terms of coach work, design, finish. LSR
    Concours are based on the pratical reality
    that most of us have many other priorities,
    limited time, and may well use our Porsches
    as daily-drivers. The odds are that most
    of the cars shown locally are prepared
    in a few hours and generally driven to
    the event prior to a final cleanup.
    Everyone should have a good time enjoying
    their cars and meeting other enthusiasts.
  • Social
    Our social activities are one of the best ways
    we have to get folks with all of those
    unique interests together. What better
    way to meet Porsche lovers than over
    a nice meal and/or refreshments at many
    of the great establishments Southeast Texas
    has to offer.
  • Autocross
    autocross is an entry-level competitive
    driving event around a course defined
    by traffic cones. Requires very little
    car prep, time or money. You get a
    chance to walk away with a trophy and
    meet new friends at the event. If you're
    not sure what an autocross is go to YouTube
    and look up our Cone killer series.

RALLY / TOURING

LSR periodically conducts Rallies, Fun Runs, and Tours (or joins with other local clubs) for those wishing to take a break (and give their brakes and tires a break) from those high testosterone / estrogen Drivers' Ed, Club Race, and Autocross events.

LSR events are meant to be more social than competitive and are activities that can involve the whole family (well, those with Cayennes or small children that can fit into the back of a 911) or older children who can navigate for their mom or dad driver.

In all types of events - Rally, Fun Run, or Tour - the objective is to get Porsche people together for a fun day with their cars and maybe learn something about the wonderful country that surrounds Houston at the same time. Click this link for information on rallies and tours on the PCA website.

The Rally Committee looks forward to seeing you at the next event.

Rallies

Rallies involve covering a measured course in a certain amount of time. Several intermediate checkpoints are established on the route, and all teams must check in at given intervals at the checkpoints. This form generally requires higher speed driving and more precise navigation involving keeping track of both elapsed time, average speed, and distance. A conforming rally requires a large amount of planning, organization, coordination, and volunteer staffing.

Fun Run

Fun Runs involve covering a course that has been laid out and measured before hand. Directions (sometimes containing cryptic clues) are provided to each driver / navigator team, and the objective is to cover the same distance as has been measured on the course. At the same time, the teams will be asked to make certain stops or observe and record landmarks or points of interest along the way. The run will end with a lunch or dinner at a scenic spot, where some nominal prizes are awarded to the team that most closely matches their mileage to the measured course, to the team with the most correct answers to the "landmark" questions, and to the team that (inadvertently) covers the most distance trying to get from start to finish.

Tours

Touring involves all cars assembling at a start point and then driving in convoy along a scenic route (for example, a Spring wildflower tour). The trip usually ends at a restaurant or other point of interest. Many of our tours are being structured as charity events with a nominal voluntary contribution solicited from participants. Check the News page for details.

PCA has several documents that pertain to planning, conducting, and post event reporting for touring activities. This same level of documentation is generally available for all PCA events that LSR conducts; however, tours are more likely to be organized and conducted on an informal basis. Persons leading tours need to be aware of this information.

Except for the PCA Insurance Item, the following are links to the applicable documents on the PCA website. Member log-in is required to access the forms.

NOTE - these documents and forms change from time to time. Current copies of the document and forms should be downloaded from the PCA website (member log-in required) for use at events that require them. All forms must be printed IN COLOR.
