Zone 8 which includes 12 other PCA regions. Our region was formed in 1987 and is
up of members in the 935xx Zip Code areas. California Inland Region is part of

in southern California, Nevada, and Arizona. To see a

What a busy month it has been! The election for
our club’s 2016 Board of Directors was completed with 12 votes cast.
The results were unanimous for the slate of candidates. Next year’s
board will be:
Vice-President: Jim Gude
Secretary: Mike Forest
Treasurer: John Quick
Past President: David Witteried
While November and December were
quite within California Inland Region, they were busy around in Zone
8! On November 20th Porsche Cars North America welcomed
the PCA to come view its display at the LA Auto Show. I understand
this event sold out the first day registration became available!
Luckily my wife, Janice, was working on her computer when the email
announcing that registration had opened arrived and she immediately
signed us up. We had a great time meeting the lead engineer of the
Cayman GT4 Club Sport as well as several of the national board
members and PCNA officials.

After we tired of walking around the auto show
we drove over to the Ontario Mills Mall where we joined up with some
other Zone 8 members for dinner Friday evening. The following
morning I got up early and made the short trip to Porsche’s training
facility for the PCA Tech Tactics. This is an annual event where PCA
and PCNA bring in experts on various topics like tires, brakes, the
new 911’s with turbos as well as other topics. There was one of the
new 911’s on a rack so we were able to go under it and view how the
new engine and suspension are put together. This is a great event
and I encourage you to attend next year if you missed out this time!
You don’t get a lot of chances to have THE experts available to
answer your questions or explain the latest great thing. Ian
Anderson was there and contributed some of the photos below. Thanks

fun with your Porsche and the PCA in 2015 I invite you to join in

than a subscription to a magazine! See you at our next event.
