The thinking here is you are going to get a much more through inspection this way as opposed to a quick look-over the AM prior to the event. As was stated, the PCA is very thorough with a safety first mentality. It makes me feel more comfortable taking my nice street car out knowing some idiot wont slam into me in a corner because his 2-yr old brake fluid boiled over, and helps put the instructors more at ease knowing they're climbing into a sound vehicle.

Totally get it. I guess it should have been more clearly communicated in the registration process is all, because I'm pretty good about following procedures and being as prepared as possible so I felt like a total bozo showing up with no tech sheet, especially since it wasn't my first rodeo.

The HPDEs I've attending had the same rules:

Windows down (for easy extraction & hand pointing for passing)
Long sleeves
Usually safety gear (helmet etc)

This actually used to be much more common. Not requiring a third party tech is a relatively recent development for track days.

One group that I run with did the opposite. They used to do on-site inspections and now require you to arrive with a signed inspection form. You can do it yourself. No need to go to a fancy shop. They are doing it as a bit of a release of liability. If they aren't responsible to certify your car for use on track then they can't be held responsible if you have a failure.

In 25 years of track and another 10 of autocross, I've never had a requirement of a 3rd party inspection. I'll assume that maybe PCA has had that. The only PCA thing I ever did was a co-event autocross with BMW CCA and PCA during the Boston Porsche Parade. Nothing special tech, but they did sort of keep that all separate anyways. I think I did tech. Don't remember.

Its probably dependent on the track and insurance. The first event I did at Thunderhill required it almost 20 years ago, other events I attended but didn't drive at Laguna Seca and Sears Point required it back then.

The newer organizations around California now running events don't require it anymore. I don't know about PCA or other clubs though.

Clothing requirements are far more loose around here because of 100+ degree temp track days. People could get heat stroke in long sleeves and pants.

If you want a nice informal track day that is extremely well organized, try a SCCA Track Night in America. Most relaxed event I've ever done, plus you don't have to wake up at 5am to get to the track. I never knew how much being well rested for a track day makes it that more enjoyable.

Remember the JDM guys from Best Motoring? Always interesting to see a Japanese perspective on Porsche performance.


Don't understand what they're saying? Turn the closed captioned English subtitles on.

Hello fellow Porsche enthusiasts. I have some sad news and could use some help/advice regarding my 991 CS

I discovered the pictured damage to my car today. I am not sure where it came from. I live in NYC, and garage the car, and very rarely street park it. I did just have it serviced at a Porsche dealership, but I think it'd a bold accusation to imply they did this (unless someone can point to this being possible from removing/attaching the bumper).

Anyways, does anyone have any thoughts as to whether this can be fixed without a complete bumper replacement? What's odd about it, is the damage protrudes from the bumper, its not an indentation. There's also no visible damage to the paint except a tiny 1-2 millimeter spot inches below the protrusion. After researching, it looks like the metal piece behind plastic bumper damage essentially stamped itself into the bumper.

Its about the size of a playing card. It's not the end of the world damage wise, but the car is pristine and this will annoy me a lot. Any thoughts are appreciated. What's the going rate on a bumper replacement? Guessing $2-3k? Thanks, Steve

That's the first time I have seen diamondplate on a Porsche. Looks good

Looks like you backed into something, or somebody pushed in your bumper and pushed the bumper against the inside form left that impression. Suspect you might need a new rear bumper unfortunately.

Not sure if it could be repaired as the plastic looks deformed. How does it line up at the rear wheel well?

Nice paint Sorry about the bumper.

Hardwired my radar detector and using a Blendmount <--- should have done this years ago. Now I want to wire my other cars to get rid of the lighter cord and get 3 more Blendmounts. A product that I wonder how I lived without, despite hearing about them for years and thinking it was all hype.

Installed my 2 channel Blackvue dashcam and again wish I did it last year. Now I am wanting a dashcam in my other vehicles.

A simple morning of 'chores' ends up looking a lot more expensive than I thought it would.

Can't imagine it would be worth paying 2-3k for a bumper vs. filing a claim. Edit, meh, maybe it would...

That's what I figured, thanks. Looks fine at the wheel well btw.

Yes... the paint has the "NYC parking garage reflection package". Very rare : )

Take a look for a used bumper. Every now and then they do show up for a fair price.

Took the last picture for me to make sense of what I was looking at. The NYC parking garage package makes PTS look like child's play. hahaha

I would ask a PDR guy and see if they can remove the indentation if the paint isn't damaged.

Anyone have advice on where to sell my Cobb Accessport V3 for a Macan?

I have a 2018 GTS thatís been great but its lease is coming up in the not too distant future and Iím not driving much at all these days so I figure I may as well sell it.

Itís been out of the box literally three or four times just to install then uninstall prior to service. I never sell anything online and some of the forums Iím finding have minimum post counts, etc...

Join local FB Porsche owner groups in your area or Macan owners group nationwide, or list it for sale on Porsche owner forums like Rennlist. A small unit like the AP should be an easy sale.
