NCR Autocross #6

Saturday, 30 September 2017 07:00am - 05:00pm

EndofSeasonHere is your last chance to participate in the NCR autocross series.  Our Autocross Season Finale is also a fundraiser for the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry.  All net proceeds along with all voluntary contributions will be donated to Loaves and Fishes.

Autocross is a great chance to learn car control, compete with some friends, and have a great time.  Located close by in Ayer, MA, this is the perfect chance to learn just how well your Porsche handles in a safe, controlled setting.

The event takes place at the Moore Airfield near Ayer, MA.  We usually run a full loop course that is about a mile long.  We have a great Novice program which includes guided course walks and instruction throughout the day.  No experience is necessary!

Online registration is required (closes Wednesday night before the event).  There will be no on-site registration.

Rally #6 - “Off the Beaten Path” Fall Foliage Tour

Saturday, 21 October 2017 10:00am

Beginning near the Massachusetts border (easy access from major highways), travel along back roads, scenic by-ways, and Old Stage Coach Roads of central New Hampshire without being slowed by “Leaf Peepers” who will be on the Interstates.   You will travel through some of New Hampshire’s most picturesque towns and hopefully on roads you didn’t know existed.   We will end at a well-known tavern for a late lunch after which you will have easy access again to the major Interstates for your travels home.    And there will be PRIZES which will NOT require you to keep track of items along the route.  So, enjoy the drive, meet new and current friends and have a great Saturday traveling in central New Hampshire. 

We meet at Panera Bread in State Line Plaza, 4 Plaistow Rd (Rt 125) in Plaistow, NH.  After our drive, lunch and festivities will be at the Common Man Restaurant & Tavern in Merrimack, NH.  Tour planning courtesy of Rich and Marilyn Willey.

Assembly & Sign-In:  9:30 to 10 AM

Drivers & Navigators Meeting (Mandatory):  10 AM

Departiure:  10:30 AM

 IMPORTANT:  RSVP with names of participants.  Information will be e-mailed to registered participants. Limit:  25 cars.
