Breaking News: You, our loyal Rally Sport members, are getting this notice 2-3 days earlier than the MSR & general public so please ACT NOW!!!!

Grattan is a challenging 2-mile, 13 turn road course with elevation changes. Many of us think it is the best road course in the upper Midwest.

MSF Level 2 training along with PCA National training will be available on Friday along with skill honing for APPROVED advanced students & instructors.

Rally Sport Region Porsche Club of America is honored to have Ross Bentley, one of the most recognized Pro Driving Coaches in the world. Ross is a former IndyCar driver and a very successful endurance racer.  You may know him as the author of the Speed Secrets series of books, or perhaps you have heard him online in one of several driver and race show podcasts. Perhaps you have read one of his contributions as a writer for Road & Track.  Now you can take advantage of this rare opportunity to meet and learn from one of the all-time best this June 7-9 at Grattan Raceway. Ross will join us on Friday to assist in MSF training – both on-track and classrooms, multiple “workshops” on Saturday, a 90-minute Open discussion on Sunday over coffee and he will be available for questions throughout the weekend along with our driver par excellence & CDI (Chief Driving Instructor) Christian Maloof!!
