If you have been looking at our “Calendar” page, you would have seen an upcoming event:
July 11/13: A Drive to Los Angeles for the Porsche Effect exhibition at Petersen Auto Museum, AND, a visit to the Porsche Experience Center- LA. This tour is already well in the development stage by Chuck and Larry. UPDATE: We have rooms reserved for five participants — but more rooms are available!
The “Plan” to drive south from the Modesto area into LA visiting some non-freeway roads along the way Wed July 11th. We will be staying at the Rodeway Inn 17448 Ventura Blvd, Encino, 91316, (@$150 per night — very reasonable for LA !) On Thursday, we will visit the Petersen Auto Museum, targeting a morning tour (Senior tickets are a reasonable $13.00). In addition to the “Porsche Effect” exhibit, there will be other exhibts that we can tour.
We will eat lunch either at the museum or at PEC-LA.
Then depending on whether you want to book an “experience” at PEC, or just watch others out on the “track/skid pads, etc.” we will visit the Porsche Experience Center for the afternoon sessions. A “session” is about 1 1/2 hours and price depends on the “car” you want to drive (Cayman/Boxsters start at @$385 all the way up to a GT3/Turbo at @$900 ! Not sure if you really need that much power on the “low friction” modules!! )
The drive “home” to follow on Friday, July 13th.
This Eventbrite “registration” is for managing the tour. Each participant will be responsible for purchasing their tickets to the museum and PEC sessions. Details will be made available to assist you in these purchases Booking for the PEC sessions will open for July in about May.
Feel free to contact Chuck, Larry or Don, via our contact page, for more information.
