What’s more fun than driving your Porsche? Driving it with a group of fellow Porsche owners! Longhorn Region members team up to deliver great driving events throughout the year. These events take careful planning, coordination and commitment to provide rewarding and safe experiences for our members. From scenic Hill Country drives to track days at Harris Hill, there are many events waiting. We hope you will participate in as many as possible. Longhorn PCA is a run by a great group of volunteer members. We encourage you to get involved. It is rewarding to meet new people and try new activities in your Porsche. Our Committee Chair leaders are always looking for a helping hand to deliver these fun experiences. To get more involved, email one of our Committee Chairs about your interest.

Longhorn PCA members are fortunate to have the Texas Hill Country in our backyard. With the many great Texas roads around us, it’s no wonder Driving Tours are such popular events. Our group of Tour Leaders put great effort scheduling and planning these events throughout the year. These drives provide for great scenery, fun twisty sections, interesting landmarks and camaraderie with fellow PCA members. Tours are run on public, paved roads, and speed limits are always observed. We follow safe driving practices including single file driving, observing speed limits and no passing. Rest stops are typically included along with a stop for a meal/snack at someplace fun. Keep an eye on our event calendar for upcoming Driving Tours. Hope to see you there!
Rallies are competitive events with the requirement to follow a specific course. The two major types of rallies are the Gimmick Rally and the Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) rally. Rallies are run on public, paved roads, and speed limits are always observed. Longhorn Region typically holds Gimmick Rallies a couple times a year. These are great events for couples as rallies require a driver and navigator team. A Gimmick Rally is full of puzzles and tricks. Drivers and navigators will need to observe, count things and answer questions regarding items seen along the route. Each team is scored based on their answers showing how well you solved the puzzles along the way. Gimmick Rallies are fun! Make it a point to participate in one of our rallies.
Autocross is an exhilarating form of motorsport. It emphasizes precise car control in a fun, low-cost, friendly and safe competition. Learn and improve your driving skills on a safe course marked by soft traffic cones typically set in a large parking lot. The car control skills you gain allow you to explore the limits of your car which makes you a safer driver on the street. Discover the fun and camaraderie of Autocross. Check out PCA’s Tips to enjoying your first Autocross.
