For the tenth year in a row, PCA regions from Zone 12 and Zone 3 will welcome PCA members and Porsche owners from all over the globe to the PCA Corral at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, Jan. 29-30, 2011. Our infield corral parking area is reserved exclusively for Porsches. There is no extra charge as long as you have an infield parking pass. Be sure to arrive early as the area fills quickly on the morning of the race and admission is on a first come basis. In addition to parking, this great member benefit offers a large tent with seating and closed circuit television coverage of the race. Refreshments and PCA member information are also provided. The Racer's Group (TRG) has invited PCA members to tour the TRG trailers and garages prior to the race. Interested PCA members will meet at the corral tent at 10am on Saturday morning and walk as a group to the TRG area of the paddock to take part in the special tour. Remember, overnight camping and tailgating in the corral is strictly prohibited and overnight parking of your Porsche is at your own risk. The racing is set to be phenomenal this year as this will be the first official event on Daytona's new pavement. We look forward to seeing you there!
