are group driving events on public roads with a social, non-competitive
(generally) flavor. Tours groups range from 10 to 50 cars and participants
may be alone or have the entire family stuffed into the back seat of
the 911. In most cases tours are very family-friendly events and there
are usually kids along for the ride and activities.
Since tours do take place on public roads the prevailing traffic laws
must be obeyed. That still leaves plenty of room for spirited driving
on the spectacular twisty roads you'll find on nearly every tour. And
even at sedate speeds it's quite a rush to be in the middle of a pack
of gleaming Porsches snaking away in both directions.
The social aspect of tours is seen in the various activities that
accompany the driving. The casual atmosphere lends itself to relaxed
discourse with your fellow club members, often in a setting involving
food. A tour isn't considered complete unless it involves at least one
and sometimes several opportunities for snacking, breakfasting, brunching,
lunching, picnicking, potlucking, or fine dining. Tour planners are
required to be acquainted with the best bakeries and restaurants in
common activities on tours include trivia games, rallies,
scavenger hunts, walking tours, kite flying, museums, shopping, and
more. Some of our weekend events in particular offer many things to
do in addition to enjoying the simple thrill of driving your Porsche
on the most exciting, scenic roads Washington has to offer.
And speaking of Washington roads, our great state offers an incredible
variety of driving and sight seeing experiences. Our tours cover the
beaches of the southwest, the forests of the Olympic Peninsula, the
farmlands of the northwest, the towering Cascades, and the wine country
and deserts of inland and eastern Washington. We even make it to Canada
and Oregon on occasion. Tour planners put together spectacular routes
covering sweeping highways, scenic byways, and the squirrelliest forest
service roads you can imagine. No matter how many miles you've logged
in this state you're sure to be amazed and thrilled by a tour route.
