Porsche 911 GT3 RS spied up close and personal
WorldCarFans.com
Porsche is hard at work preparing the 991 911 GT3 RS as a prototype was spied testing recently on the Nürburgring. After fixing the fire-related issue on the 911 GT3, Porsche has resumed work on the hardcore RS version which probably won't be delayed as initially believed so chances are it will be introduced in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. It will feature a modified body with wider fenders, different canards along with a big wing at the back. Also expect to see an updated roof and a restyled hood for a better aerodynamic efficiency.

Register for the Monterey Parade!
PCA
Parade will be held Sunday, June 15, until Saturday, June 21. Registration is now open. A guide to all events is on the Parade website at parade2014.pca.org, and you should use that to help you plan your week. All registrations will be accepted but be aware some events fill quickly and then go to a “waitlist” status.

The Parade registration system pulls its information from your PCA account, so please ensure you have all your information up-to-date, and that you know your PCA website logon information (user name and password). We especially need a current email, as all Parade information is sent to that email.  

We are fortunate to have blocks at five different hotels this year — you will be in good company no matter which one you choose!  Once you have completed your Parade registration and have received the confirmation email (within a few seconds) with both your entrant number and special hotel authorization codes, you will be ready to reserve your accommodations. Remember that lodging reservations are subject to availability — you will want to book as soon as possible after registering for Parade to ensure your preference.

PCA National volunteer position available: RegionFocus Coordinator
PCA
We are looking for a volunteer to take RegionFocus to the next level. Rather than unilateral distribution of a lengthy newsletter, we are searching for a PCA Region Officer (past or present) who will send periodic articles to regional management and then promote discussion of relevant topics via a management forum on pca.org. That is, while the RegionFocus Coordinator will compile and distribute relevant articles, the RegionFocus Coordinator will need to be comfortable leading and moderating discussion in an online forum.
