Survey: Interested in a tour to Colorado in September 2023?

Interest survey: possible PCA-Milwaukee Region September 2023, Colorado tour

PCA-Milwaukee Region is considering another long-distance tour next year, this time to Colorado, to drive numerous uber-twisty, Porsche-perfect mountain roads, including Pikes Peak (Elevation 14,115’) and Independence Pass (Elevation 11,095’). The time will be early September 2023 (departing Saturday, September 9, if we had to guess). If there is little interest, the idea will be dropped. If there is a lot of interest, we’ll proceed with planning. Please consider that this tour would require about 8 days, and it would likely add about 3,000 miles to your Porsche’s odometer.

If you are interested, please send a brief email indicating your potential interest (no formal commitment is required at this time……but will be soon) to:
