Driving Tours

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 and run around 60-100 miles in length. Come join the fun and see this rolling car show!

For the 2018 season we have six tours spaced throughout the year. All of the tours are "near to home", and provide members with a beautiful scenic drive to a fun destination! All PCA members can participate in a tour for FREE.

We are back from our short summer break for the 5th Driving Tour this year, and boy do we have a treat for you! This will be our annual charity tour to MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, TX. MotorSport Ranch is a country club for automotive enthusiasts at an awesome race track. We will start the tour on Sunday, September 23rd in Mansfield, TX at 10 am. The drive will be 56 miles long and will not have a rest stop. This is a great route and many of our drive leaders have nicknamed an area of it -The Enchanted Forest- and for good reason. We will be visiting the track while our Maverick Region High-Performance Driving Education program is underway. If you have ever been interested in attending an HPDE and want to know what its like, this tour is for you. For an optional $30 donation you can take your car out on the track for some parade laps! Parade laps are not at a pace that is slow like in a parade nor is it too fast. This will be my third time doing them and everyone I have talked to gets excited while sharing their experience afterward. After the parade laps, we will have a catered lunch that is also optional.


VIDEO: Parade laps at MotorSport Ranch
 Watch this video to just get an idea of what it's like to drive at MotorSport Ranch. A Parade lap is where drivers go around the track at a slow speed in a single line. This is not an example of a DE session.


Catering will be provided by Roscoe's Smokehouse. They will be serving five types of meat including ribs, sliced brisket, pulled pork, smoked chicken, and sausage. The sides will be coleslaw, potato salad, and BBQ beans. Dessert will be peach cobbler and tea will also be provided, all for $16 per person. All proceeds for this tour will be donated to Patriot Paws. Patriot Paws provides service dogs at no cost to disabled American veterans with mobile disabilities and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder to help restore their physical and emotional independence. More information on Patriot Paws or any of our other of our preferred charities can be found at http://mav.pca.org/about/charity. Donations can also be made at any time at that address.

You must register for the tour below. We have two classes now on our tours. Choose Vintage Class for a more relaxed scenic tour or Modern Class for the same type of tour that we have provided in the past. Whichever class you choose it is your decision no matter the type of Porsche you drive. After registration, we will send you all the information needed to attend three days before the tour. We hand out packets the day of the tour with all the information as well. The Drivers Briefing will begin at 10 am so please arrive early so that you are signed in on time. Most tour attendees arrive early to meet new friends and socialize with familiar faces. Arriving early also helps our volunteers get everyone signed in on time so the tour is on schedule. No special navigation will be needed. Our Group Leaders will be familiar with the route and will guide each group of 14 cars or less in their group on the route. If you have any questions about the event please email tours@mavpca.org.
