Covid-19

Greetings fellow Rennsporters, 

As the weather starts to warm up our thoughts usually start to think about upcoming club events, but our 2020 season will be a bit different. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus will impact our 2020 season.

The Rennsport executive and all the various organizing committees have been following all the latest developments. At this point the governments of Ontario and Quebec are banning all indoor and outdoor gatherings until mid April at the earliest. As soon as it is safely possible, our goal will be to run our outdoor events and re-evaluate our indoor events. These events will be adapted to follow all the latest COVID-19 public health guidelines. 

Until further notice all regular scheduled indoor club activities like monthly dinners and breakfast meetings have been put on hold. 

Stay well, and we will be back in touch with new information as soon as possible

Call for volunteers Destination Porsche

Destination Porsche is here on 27-29 September and we need your help.

The full reserved area includes the paddock for all of the GT3 Challenge race teams and a display of the classic Porsches that have been restored by 12 of the Porsche Centres across Canada.

We are looking for volunteers to ensure the success of this event. You must be available for a minimum of four hours per day, Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday. As a thank you for your support, Porsche Canada and Rennsport offers; a free entrance ticket to the races, reserved Porsche parking and based on availability volunteers shirts.

Jun_11_Coffee_RunCoffee Run leaders are advised to drive their planned route a few days before the run to ensure that there are no unexpected surprises; and with good reason.

The road was completely torn up for widening construction.  I had to improvise in short order and then drive a new route that night.
