Don't despair when Autumn is in the air. Celebrate in the traditional German way - OktoberFAST is back again this year. Yes, that's right - it's your chance to head out to High Plains Raceway for the last Porsche club high performance driving event of 2013.
The event is open to cars of any make or model and to all drivers, even if you aren’t a PCA member. SUVs are not permitted and convertibles must have factory installed or aftermarket rollover protection. Join other track enthusiasts for all things German - fast cars, no speed limits, the oom-pah-pah of Bavarian music and Beer Thirty featuring a tasty selection of German beer and wine. Mark October 19th and 20th on your calendars now so you don't forget!
OktoberFAST is a No Times Driving Event with paid corner workers which means lots of track time. Sign up early so you don't miss out. This will be the time you'll fondly remember when the snow is on the ground and the car is tucked snugly in the garage, so don't wait until the last minute. Registration is now open at motorsportreg.com, with one day for only $180 or both days for $260. Instructors are available and every experience level, from first-timer to pro, is welcome to join in the fun. Watch for the pre-tech inspection dates in email and the Porsche club newsletter.
Last year's participants received a highly-sought after shirt, and this year we have created another unique shirt to add to your collection. Violet Cruz, a graphic designer and Ladies Day DE driver, designed a 911 50th anniversary shirt just for OktoberFAST. She'll be out at the track driving the wheels off her Mini Cooper S, so stop by, say hello, and thank her for such a cool shirt. The only catch is that you have to sign up for OktoberFAST to get one, so don't miss out.
We will also be running a food drive and have noontime rides on the track with all proceeds benefiting the Bienvenidos Food Bank in Denver. Please bring canned goods and non-perishable food items out to the track with you and we'll get it to the food bank.
You can e-mail the event chairs, Bill Emery or Dale Hartzell with any questions.
You deserve to participate in this event and it's the proper way to give your car one last hurrah before winter. See you at OktoberFAST!
