Porsche Club of WA - Come and Try Day 2017

February 02, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Last weekend saw the running of the Porsche Club of WA's annual "Come and Try Day"

This event is intended for club members to be able to get onto the track, and use their awesome machines to their full potential in a non-competitive and fun atmosphere.
Entrants who enjoy the taste of the action can then enrol into the club's track series run throughout the year at various venues.

The weather was a stinking hot 38 degrees celcius under the hot Perth sun - however the over-engineered and amazing craftmenship of the Porsche factory made sure that the cars ran smoothly.

The day started off in the pits, where the serious guys got prepped with fuel, tyre pressures and such.
This gave me the opportunity to get some detail shots of the beautiful machinery

This was followed by a drivers briefing by the very experienced David Blainey (Sporting Director) so drivers would know what to expect

From here, it was action stations, cars getting lined up in the pits to head out in small groups to get a handle on the track and conditions
