Plan to be in Mammoth Lakes September 24-26 for the eleventh annual Mammoth High Alpine Porsche Tour.  There will be drives Saturday morning and afternoon, September 25, followed by a display of participant Porsches on Canyon Blvd Saturday afternoon and evening. As usual, the Sierra Nevada Region is your host region with Mark Coronado (Mammoth resident) doing the planning and making the arrangements for the Tour events in and around Mammoth Lakes.  The Sierra Nevada Region will be holding a drive to Mammoth Lakes from Reno on Friday, September 24 (see separate event listing), which Tour participants from other regions are welcome to join. Since we are holding this event in late September this year, rather than on Father’s Day weekend, you can expect cooler temperatures and a spectacular show of fall color around the Mammoth and June Lakes. Your Porsches will perform even better in the cooler air.

The High Alpine Porsche Tour is a weekend of driving designed for all Porsches from the classic 356’s to the newest supercars and everything in between, including the Cayenne and Macan SUVs. This tour is designed for fun and camaraderie. The highlight is a 100-mile, 2-hour tour that takes you down the spine of the Eastern Sierra, around the June lakes, past Mono Lake, and across the high desert. You’ll enjoy a handful of epic S-turns, stretches of straight highway and rolling hills and whoop-de-do’s (Porsche technical term) that will send your belly into your throat at the right speeds.

This is pay as you go event, but this year we will ask participants from all regions to register in advance so we know how many are coming and can better plan this tour. Please list the name of your PCA Region in the Comment section when you register.
