Tony Carolan, President
Welcome to the Porsche Club of Victoria (PCV) website.
We are all Porsche enthusiasts and PCV provides the best avenue to share the passion of your Porsche and the Porsche marque with a group of fantastic fun loving people. As a club we take pride in welcoming and encouraging all members to participate as fully as possible in all that our club has to offer.
If you are a new member… (begin here!)
A great place to learn a little about our club is right here. Notice the fourth item on our web main menu “Club Magazine & Publications”. Here we have loaded all our club magazines “Porsche Parade” grouped by decade, as well as our 40th Anniversary Book. Our excellent quarterly magazine has many interesting stories about all the Clubs events, members and their special cars, superb photos and other articles of interest to Porsche lovers. Virtually our entire club history is now on line.
Look through our web site for our calendar of events which you will find under the “Events (inc. past results)” menu item.
Depending on the Porsche that you own – you are automatically a member of that model's Register. The Registers exist for cars of a particular year group or type of model and offer similar runs to the Social group, as well as technical information events specific to that group. Perhaps the best introduction to the club is to go along to one of your registers events. These groups tend to be smal and quite intimate, which tends to create lasting friendships.
Enjoy our Social Events... (a must for ALL!)
There is a rich and varied social offering of day runs to lunch venues, as well as occasional overnight and multi-day runs within Victoria and sometimes interstate, open to all club members.
There is an annual Show ‘n Shine for those who love pampering and exhibiting their pride and joy.
Our Annual Dinner Dance is held in early December and finishes off our year with this exceptional gala event.
Come to our fabulous club nights… (time to share your passion!)
There are 5 bi-monthly meetings, at Porsche Centres Melbourne, Brighton, Doncaster, or occasionally at other interesting locations, which include dinner, socializing and presentations by a variety of guest speakers from all walks of life and motorsport.
Generally held on the third Tuesday of February, April, June, August and the October AGM. Our opening club night is typically a bar-be-que at a special location. All club nights are catered, and provide information on current activities, competition results, and general interest topics for everyone. We have held fashion parades, phantom race calls, make up demonstrations, as well as the compulsory wheels and tyres presentation. Come along and meet your fellow club members – here is something of interest for all!
Enjoy your Porsche on the Track… (enhance your driving skills!)
With Porsche having such an interest in motorsport, our track program features more prominently than at most other car clubs. There is an annual series of circuit, hill climb and motorkhana racing, at tracks such as Sandown, Phillip Island, Winton, Bryant Park and Broadford. There are class and overall championships on offer over a 10 – 12 round season. Within these competition events, there is a non-competitive Entrée group, who enjoy the tracks at whatever rate they like.
Marshals… (everyone can be involved!)
This active group controls all the competition events and thereby gains an intimate access to, and knowledge of, all facets of racing, either as a qualified senior official or a trackside “flaggy”. Again, many personal friendships are made within this group.
The club has many ways in which members can participate, volunteer and organise. Above all, it is a club of very competent, friendly and interesting people, of great diversity, who enjoy their cars and each other.
Contact me, other committee members, or our administrator, through the details on this site.
I assure you that you will get a friendly welcome.
