Thunderhill PCA Golden Gate Region Driver's Education and Club Race
- August 31, 2013
Redwood region members who attended the August 31, 2013 Golden Gate
Region Driver's event included Mac Cranford, Dean Lyon, Grady Carter,
and Andy Brian. Perfect weather and a well run event let drivers focus
on their track time, as Dave Bunch and George Neidel kept the Grid
organized and ready to roll.
Thunderhill Raceway, 6 miles west of Willows, CA is a challenging track
for new students and experienced drivers alike, featuring 16 turns, with
elevation changes and blind corners thrown in for extra excitement.
For club members wishing to experience the performance capabilities of
their Porsches, coming out for an autocross or driver's event is a great
opportunity. In addition to the fun of driving your car under closed
course conditions, the instruction and track time has inherent safety
benefits that carry over to driving on the street. Redwood Region and
other Zone 7 regions have experienced instructors and the resources to
get you started.
Golden Gate Region's Driver's Education Schedule has
been posted to the Redwood Calendar. Redwood's Autocross dates will be
posted as soon as approved by the Airport.
