Porsche Club of America to visit Traverse City, Mich., for 2013 Porsche Parade
PCA
PCA's showcase event, our annual Parade, will return to Traverse City, Mich., for the first time since 1989. A hidden gem for many, TC - as it's known to locals - is one of America's best-kept secret resorts. Known for its laconic beauty, its high-duned coast along Lake Michigan, and as the tart cherry-capital of America, TC offers a great variety of touring destinations, scenic, well-surfaced roads, beautiful vistas and a sophisticated small-town atmosphere as a home to a vibrant art, literature, and film community. Parade's host, The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, offers an amazing array of amenities, activities and facilities that will make this year's Parade one to remember. The Concours will be on-site, steps away from the hotel and Concours prep area. The two day autocross will be held at nearby Antrim County Airport. The Parade TSD and Gimmick Rallies will cruise through some incredibly beautiful scenery and visit several historically significant sites. And of course the Tech Quiz will have you wishing you'd read just one more book and checked your collections of manuals for the umpteenth time...

Registration opens March 12, 2013
Let's not forget all the other great Parade activities for kids and adults that Parade has become known for over the years: the Art Show, the Hospitality Center, the driving and bus tours, the 5K Run/Walk, the RC car autocross and more, more, more! This year's Parade in Traverse City, Mich., is already gearing up to be another one to be talked-about for the ages. For more information, go to parade2013.pca.org Registration for the 2013 Porsche Parade opens on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. All registrations entered by midnight Thursday, March 14 will receive equal and highest priority. There will be no paper registration.

Brumos ends Circuit of the Americas debut with podium celebration
Brumos Racing
For Brumos Racing, a trip to Austin’s new Circuit of the Americas presented both opportunities and challenges. The second round of 2013 Rolex Series competition marked their Austin debut and was one of the most highly anticipated races of the season. The new facility did not disappoint, drawing high marks from crew and drivers. While many of their competitors had tested at the facility previously, the track was new to Brumos, so the team focused on preparation in the weeks before the race. Their research and hard work paid off, as the car proved to be strong right off the truck. Andrew Davis showcased the Brumos Porsche 911 GT3 for the large crowd of Texas fans, putting the #59 in 3rd place for the start of the race in a strong qualifying performance.
