Due the ongoing impact of Covid-19 we have decided to cancel the Ground School theory class planned for 25 April as well as the Ground School practical on 10 May. Our intention is to reschedule both events once the impact of this Crisis has abated.
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
To add to your calendar!

PCA and most driving clubs, recommend the use of current SNELL SA rated Helmets or their equivalent BSI and SFI counterparts. SNELL certifications are for a ten-year period. SNELL certified 2020 helmets are now available at retail outlets. Therefore SNELL SA and SM 2010 helmets will no longer be accepted at Rennsport events. This rule is applicable to all PCA regional driving events.
As of 2021, ONLY SNELL and 2015-2020 or their equivalent BSI and SFI certified helmets will be permitted.
For the Rennsport 2021 DE season, each driver participating in the Drivers Education program must wear a helmet meeting the following Safety Helmet Standards:
- SNELL Foundation Helmets rated: SA2015 or SA2020 (recommended)
- Equivalent British Standards Institute (BSI): BS6658-85 type A/FR
- Equivalent SFI Foundation Inc. Helmets rated: SFI 31.1A
At the first event attended in the 2021 season, and all subsequent events, you are requested to bring your Helmet to the Tech Line for inspection. A Sticker will be affixed to indicate your helmet meets requirements for 2020 and future DE events.
Please do not hesitate contacting us if you have further questions at DrivingEvents@Rennsport.ca
Montréal Holiday Party
Destination Porsche is here on 27-29 September and we need your help.
The final races of the 2019 Porsche GT3 Challenge Cup Canada will be at Le Circuit Mont -Tremblant that weekend and Porsche Cars Canada, with the help of PCA regions across the country, has organized a weekend of activities called Destination Porsche so that Porsche owners will be at the centre of the action.
A large section of the spectator area, that we are calling the Coral, has been reserved for us to park our Porsches.

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.
