Cars and Coffee

All Blue Ridge Region PCA members are invited and encouraged to attend Cars N Coffee on Saturday March 11, 2023 starting at 9:30am.  Come for great cars and food, but most importantly to socialize with other club members!  What an awesome way to connect with club members and to fill the cool days.

There is no club cost to attend this event, but members are responsible for their meals and beverages.  Registration is limited to members of the Blue Ridge Region PCA and their family or guest. 

This is a limited capacity event so register early.  A waitlist will be maintained once the event fills to accommodate additional attendees as cancelations occur.

What goes into the cost of organizing an HPDE meet, track day, or race event on a road course?

The largest fee is the track surface itself. It requires many experts to prepare, lay, and maintain the specially formulated asphalt that resists high lateral G forces and somebody has to shell out the dough for it. That person paying is the event organizer, and by proxy, their participants.

Today we’re going to peek behind the curtain at the cost of road course rentals around the world.
