Maverick Region Tours are gatherings of PCA members and guests who meet up at a defined starting location and drive together, along an interesting route, to enjoy a unique place or destination. Tours generally last about three hours. Come join the fun and see this rolling car show!
This year we have five Tours spaced throughout the twelve months. All of the Tours are "near to home", and provide members with a beautiful scenic drive to a fun destination! Any PCA members can participate in a tour for FREE. Some tours include a catered meal which you may choose to purchase.
Our Tourmeisters are Bill Orr and Mark Pitarresi. To obtain e-mail notifications of the Tours, please e-mail them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

After a welcome summer break, the Maverick Region PCA Tours program resumes its schedule with a drive to Motorsport Ranch later this month. As icing on the cake, drivers will be allowed onto the track for a series of parade laps.
The tour is scheduled for Sunday, September 24, at 9:00 am. It will start in the parking lot of Costco, 250 E Hwy 67, in Duncanville, and end at Motorsport Ranch in Cresson. The length of the tour is 71 miles and because of the short distance there will be no rest stops. Drivers wishing to take to the track for parade laps will be required to present a $25.00 Walmart gift card to the Gridmaster as a charitable contribution to the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House. You can learn more about this very worthy club charity that our club supports on the our web page at http://mav.pca.org/about/charity.asp.
If you've never been to Motorsport Ranch (MSR), it is one of the many "country club" tracks that have sprouted up all over the country that cater specifically to performance automobile owners. It's primarily a track for club members to have fun and go as fast as their comfort level allows. The Maverick Region holds most of its Drivers' Education events there. In fact, a Maverick DE will be taking place the same day that we'll be there. We'll take to the track during the DE lunch break.
Speaking of which: lunch will also be available, provided by Del Norte Tacos for $10 for adults and $5 for kids(12 and under). Just indicate in your RSVP if you plan to have lunch at the track.
Now, I know what you're thinking: "What exactly is a parade lap?" A parade lap is not so slow as to emulate a vehicle towing a parade float, nor is it an open invitation to go flat out around the course. Consider a parade lap as a "safety car" lap. Not too slow, not too fast.
If you plan to attend the Tour, it is imperative that you RSVP before the tour. Once registered for the Tour you will receive an e-mail three days before the Tour with the following attachments: a Garmin .gdb file of the route, a route overview, and turn-by-turn instructions.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to send me an email at email@example.com. I hope to see you and your Porsche at the Motorsport Ranch Tour! If you can't make it be sure to check out our schedule of future tours down below.
