It's not just the cars, it's the People!

Abran RiveraHi, I am David Witteried, the California Inland Region President. Welcome to our web site! The CAI region is a charted region of the Porsche Club of America, Inc. Our region was formed in 1987 and is generally made up of members in the 935xx Zip Code areas. California Inland Region is part of Zone 8 which consists of 14 chartered regions in southern California, Nevada, and Arizona. To see a Google Map of the CAI region boundaries click here.

Our web site is designed to be a useful tool and a place you will visit frequently. Use the quick links at the top of the page to view upcoming event fliers or the calendar page for longer range planning. If you have a question about the club try our FAQ page for a quick answer! Photos of recent events or an adventure you want to share are available on the photo gallery.

Our Installation Dinner was a success with 20 members signing up to share the evening at the Charus’ home in Palmdale. Originally we had planned on having the event at John and Kathy Quick’s home in Juniper Hills, but due to circumstance beyond their control the location had to be changed. Bob Gordon took some photos which you can enjoy on our Facebook Page. Tom Brown our PCA Zone 8 Representative made the trip from San Diego to join us for the evening’s festivities. We had a great meal, photos taken by members were shown, games were played, and door prizes were handed out! A special prize was presented to Lori DeCristo for being the CAI Rookie of the Year. Lori who was not a “car club person” decided to give the PCA a try after buying her red Boxster. She jumped right in and started attending our monthly breakfast and board meetings, and quickly volunteered to be our Social Activities Chairwoman. One of her goals was to increase participation amongst our Santa Clarita membership by having more activities in the area. And after only a year as a committee chair, Lori has joined the CAI Board of Directors as our new Vice President for 2015. Lori has also contributed at the Zone level by volunteering for the California Festival of Speed and other events. If you see Lori be sure to congratulate her!

I also wanted to thank R2 Racing (18228 Soledad Canyon Rd, Canyon Country) for donating a $200 service coupon for our door prizes, when you stop by their shop be sure to let Robert and Rafi know that you appreciate their support!

Welcome New Members! Joe Graziano, David Patience, Amir Hami and Ken Vaughn. I hope to see you at one of our events soon!

Upcoming Events:

Speaking of Santa Clarita… we are going to have another Breakfast Meeting at Margarita’s Mexican Grill on the 28th of February. We met here last year and everyone agreed that the food (and parking) was great! I am counting on a good turnout from our southern members, mark your calendar now. Please see the this flyer.

Concours in the Canyons on April 19th. The registration site for our annual Concours has opened on MotorsportsReg (see flyer). This is our signature event for the year and has been enjoyed by our membership as well as the public since we changed its location a few years ago. You can see pictures from 2013 on our website.

Date Corrected… Tech Session at R2 Racing, March 21st. Details to come… mark your calendar.

Zone 8 Festival of Speed, April 10-12. I would like to solicit your support as a volunteer worker for the 2015 Zone 8 Festival of Speed (FoS) on 10-12 April. The California Festival of Speed is the Porsche enthusiasts dream weekend. It includes: Club Racing, Time Trials, Swap Meet, Porsche Corral, Porsche for Sale Platz, Porsche Timeline Display, Vendor Row, Concours, Taste of Autocross, Parade Laps, Friends, Fun and all things Porsche! Need we say more? This event has race cars, show cars, it can even have your car! See the cars, meet the drivers and experience the excitement! As a member of your PCA Region, you are also a member of Zone 8 (the 13 PCA Regions in southern California, Arizona, and Nevada). The FoS is run and staffed with volunteers from all over Zone 8 and we can use your help! This is your opportunity to get involved with a multi-region event where you can meet and make friends who share your passion for Porsche! If you want to support the FoS in some way please contact our volunteer coordinator Connie Somers (volunteer@calfestival.org). 

Do you have an idea for an event? Is there something you would like to see your club do? If so please contact me or any of the board members and we can discuss it. One of the more rewarding things you can do in the club is to volunteer to lead or help out with an event.
