New and existing Porsche Club of WA members are invited to get involved in the sporting series. This series offers an excellent schedule of sporting events for those members wishing to improve their driving skills while competing against other members (by way of timed laps) and having a huge amount of fun in your Porsche! The series will consist of timed events at Barbagallo Raceway, Collie Motorplex and Perth Motorplex. The emphasis is on providing a controlled, supervised environment for members to have fun, learn and enjoy the spirit of friendly competition.
So why not get involved in our sporting series by getting your Porsche out on the track! There is no additional cost to enter the series, only the normal track day fees which are kept to a minimum. You will NOT be racing other cars directly. Every event is a speed event which means you will be racing the clock to try to get your best time for the day!
Even if you don't wish to join the full series, members are welcome to come along to any round and join in the fun on the track. All you need is the requisite safety equipment listed below.
