The Concours season is here! It’s time to get your Porsche out in the sun for that critical inspection so you can spend all the time you need to prepare for Concours competition. Our OCR Concours will be on Saturday, June 16th at the Sports and Recreation Park in Mile Square Park, Fountain Valley.

 

This year we will honor the 70th anniversary of Porsche sports cars. In June 1948, the first Porsches were built and licensed to race. Those rare cars put in motion a dedication to engineering, building, racing and driving the finest cars in the world.

 

You are invited to attend and participate in your PCA-OCR Concours. For beginners and even experts, start your preparation with a review of the www.zone8.org website. Go to “Events” and then to “Concours d’Elegance.” You will find everything you need to know about Concours car preparation, competition and judging. The rules and categories for competition are explained. If you are interested in learning to be a Concours judge, this is where you get your start.

 

Cooper Boggs of Cooper’s Classy Car Care will host a Concours preparation workshop at his home in May. This is your chance to spend a morning with the expert. Cooper will share tips about what it takes to win in the Concours.

 

Volunteer at the event! If you don’t plan on entering a judged category, then show up, park your car on the field and join your friends and help out at the event. Learn how it all works. On the Friday before the morning of the Concours, a hearty group of volunteers joins our field marshal to set up the field. We accommodate up to 120 cars on the field in the judged and display sections. There is room for everyone.

 

Circle Porsche and Porsche Riverside display new cars at the Concours. Porsche vendors join us to display their merchandise. Our very own Goodie Store will have a full display of shirts, caps and many more fantastic items. We’ll have food and beverages available and the Fountain Valley Community Foundation will host a beer and wine garden at our event. The park is a great place to bring your family and a picnic to spend the day. Don’t forget to enter the Picnic Contest! Box lunches will be available for day of purchase and pre-order.

 

All the details are being worked out right now by your Concours Committee. Details and registration will be announced in the Pando, on the App, and in the Club Calendar available on the PCA-OCR Facebook and web pages. Registration will open on May 1 and will be available through www.motorsportreg.com.

 

Over the years, the Concours has been one of the great annual events for our club. We have seen some amazing Porsches on the field and everyone has a great time. Mark your calendar and plan on joining us!
