Motor-Stadt Region Porsche Club of America
Motor-Stadt Region, PCA, was created in 1973 from the dreams of three young men; Jerry Dillinger, Marty Herstein , and Paul Weston. You may not know these individuals, but you should know that Jerry (Traverse City) and Paul (Philly area) still retain their PCA status and call Motor-Stadt their HOME region. Marty was at the time, an enthusiastic Porsche salesman at Williams Porsche-Audi.
The Western Michigan Region of PCA began at an organizing meeting, held October 22, 1960, at Greenridge Country Club in Grand Rapids. Attendees numbered 31, and all voted to form the club known as PCA Western Michigan.
“Activities favored for events were ice runs, rallies, gymkahnas, and hill climbs with technical speakers and films as features at regular meetings.” Today, the Club is geared toward driving events and social events. The IROC autocross series (with Michiana and Motor-Stadt regions) remains a popular competition. The Grand Prix of Grattan is a three-day event – usually in September – that provides a tremendous amount of seat time on this very popular road course. Dinner drives and other social events take place monthly, and more frequently when we can have our cars out on the Western Michigan roads.
The goal of our region is the enjoyment of what binds us together — Porsche (and good food). Therefore we have events almost every month to help keep us the “Fast, Fun, Friendly Region.” The list of events include driver education (Waterford Hills Road Race Course), autocrosses, tours, dinners, and whatever members decide to put together. In the past, this has included “wall climbing” at Planet Rock in Pontiac.
