We will be at the Amelia Island Porsche Club of America Werks Reunion on Friday, March 8 with our 924S on the Judged Field. There are several 924S and 944 cars registered, and if you have never been, this is a Friday that you will want to take off from work!
We were on the judged field last year and the array of Porsches – new, vintage and unusual – was stunning.
Werks Reunion was created by the Porsche Club of America as an event to celebrate both the Porsche marque as well as the camaraderie of being an enthusiast. This is not a contest of who has removed dust from the deepest crevices in their Porsche but rather a judged show that rewards a Porsche that has been lovingly maintained and presents itself well on the field. Our judges do not use Porsche Parade Concours score sheets but rather rank the cars according to certain attributes discussed prior to judging. For those who do not wish to have their cars judged, you may display in the model specific corrals or if the organizers see fit, on the judged field itself. There are no score sheets returned or protest committees. This is a casual gathering of Porsche enthusiasts focused on having fun rather than solely competition.
Membership in PCA is not required to participate in this celebration of Porsche automobiles. Expect to view a breathtaking array of Porsches at this free-to-spectators event, from rare classics to current models and everything in between. Display your own cherished car in model-specific Porsche Corrals or enter the Porsche Judged field and compete to win in more than 20 prize categories. Spectators are welcome and free to attend.
Porsche owners looking to compete will have the opportunity to enter their car in the Judged event. From original to modified outlaws, our goal is a welcoming event that will dazzle competitors & spectators alike. Judging classes & rules will be available at a later date. Special, one-of-a-kind trophies are being made just for this event. Porsche owners who do not enter the Judged event will have the opportunity to show off their pride and joy in the model specific Porsche only parking corral.
This year we have a goal of a stunning display of more than 500 Porsches, access to dozens of vendors, and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow car enthusiasts. The 2017 show will feature the latest Porsches, special vehicle presentations, celebrity guests, and a surprise or two.
Spectators, guests, spouses do not need to register. Only owners of Porsches entering the Judged field or parking in the Porsche corral need to register.
Corral Parking (Porsche Only) fee is $60 per car, includes an Werks event bag, reserved parking space, and automatically entered into special sponsor awards.
Judged Field Participation (Porsche Only) fee is $85 per car. Also includes Werks event bag, reserved parking space, commemorative gifts, and automatically entered into special sponsor awards.
Let’s get lots of folks from the 924S/944 Community! You don’t have to park in the Corral or have your car on the Judging Field – just come to the North Florida Coast and have a great day with Porsches!
