"Taste of the Track" at Lime Rock on Sept 21

Posted on September 13th, 2019 8:10 AM by Jeff Kriz


Don't miss the "Taste of the Track" Track Tour at our September 21 Advanced DE at Lime Rock Park. The cost is $25.00 for one 15 min. pace car controlled session on track at 60 mph, with a 20 min. educational "chalk talk".  Helmets are not required.  Vehicles licensed for road use must have a current state inspection, but a track tech inspection is not required.

If you have been itching to get your Porsche on track but aren’t quite sure about doing a PCA Driver Education event, this is your opportunity to get a taste of what it’s like at a minimum cost!  Bring a folding chair and watch the Advanced drivers or socialize with DE participants.

Go to ClubRegistration.net to register for this event (search for Event Type = "Driver's Ed" and Event Host = "Hudson Valley Region PCA"; if you haven't already done so, you'll need to set up an account first).  Contact the HVR Track Chair, Kevin Challacombe, if you have any questions.

Bellvale Creamery Meetup

Posted on July 19th, 2019 4:11 AM by Jeff Kriz


Attention HVR PCA members!   We're having a meet up on Sunday, July 28th 12-3pm at the Bellvale Farms Creamery (1390 Rte. 17A, Warwick NY 10990).

The Bellvale Creamery is located on the top of Mount Peter with a spectacular view of the Warwick Valley. It is a frequent stop for hikers on the Appalachian Trail and Trip Advisor ranked the Bellvale Creamery #2 among Top 10 Ice Cream Parlor’s in the United States. 

Come join us for a relaxing afternoon of socializing, ice cream and admiring the great views (and the cars too!). For more information about the farm and creamery be sure to check out the official website at www.bellvalefarms.com.

Just a couple of reminders - the ice cream, food and beverages are on you and the parking on 2 gravel lots, although ample, can fill up so plan to arrive early. This is a destination meet up, so there is not an HVRPCA driving tour to or from the location. Of course, you are free to make your own private individual arrangements to drive together if you like.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
