About Rally Sport Region: The Short Version

Thursday, November 6, 2014 8:01 PM

Welcome to Rally Sport! The Porsche Club of America (PCA) Rally Sport Region was formed in 1996 with the objective of encouraging all members to participate in the planning and enjoyment of our events, whether social events like the Color Tour or driving events at our local tracks.

We started with less than 30 primary members and have grown to about 220. Although we are located in the southeastern Michigan region, we’ve had members from around the U.S., and even internationally from Canada to Germany.

Since our first year, we’ve been holding driving education and social events throughout the driving season. We’ve also had various charity events, from autocrosses to Ferdinand Porsche birthday parties. We have on average one social event each month, and five or six track events per year. We’re always open to new ideas from our membership.

Our monthly newsletter, the Bahn Stormer, has also been around since the beginning. It is our source of information for events, contacts, and informative articles. It is a handy source of reference for our members throughout the year. On a national level, we receive Panorama, the award winning magazine of PCA.

Our goal has always been to be the “fast, fun, friendly” region. And because we’re family-oriented, our fourth “F” is actually “food.”

Visitors are always welcome! Rally Sport Region welcomes non-members to all Driver’s Education and social events (check out links). Come out and enjoy beautiful cars, delicious food and good company!

FAQ – Answers to popular RSP Questions

Can I be a member of two PCA regions at once?

Well... maybe. One of our members was in both Rally Sport and Central New York regions at one time. He said that he just paid the membership dues twice, once for each region. I’ve asked the central PCA (Porsche Club of America) office, and I’ve gotten a "yes" and a "no" from them. I think you can if you pay twice.

Is this region called RSP or RSR?

RSP is the official region name given by Porsche Club of America. Rennsport Region is officially called RSR. However, we sometimes refer to ourselves by the wrong acronym because we get confused easily, and because RSR is easily the cooler acronym. Canadians.

I heard that the Porsche club was full of snobby people. Is that true?

Who told you that? They probably meant "sloppy" instead of snobby, due to the large quantities of Good Food at our events. We didn’t earn the nickname "The Fast, Fun and Friendly Region" for nothing! Come join us and we’ll prove the snobby myth wrong. And uhh... bring Food.
