2019 Pumpkin Run Drivers Education at Putnam Park

October 11, 2019 - October 13, 2019

Central Indiana Region of the Porsche Club of America (CIRPCA) is hosting our annual Pumpkin Run Driver Education event at Putnam Park Road Course (www.putnampark.com) in Mt. Meridian, IN. on October 11-13, 2019. The driving season will be coming to a close soon, so why not close out the year with a great weekend of track fun!

Registration is available here via ClubRegistration.net

Putnam Park is a favorite among racers and beginners alike. The 1.8 mile, 10 turn circuit is a great layout for beginning drivers, yet challenging enough for experts to hone their skills.
Our two day event will provide extensive track time, as well as classroom instruction. Beginning drivers and those with limited experience will have an experienced instructor in the seat next to you, ensuring that you learn the proper line around the track and safe driving technique. All of our great instructors are dedicated to making your experience FUN & SAFE! At the conclusion of the weekend, you will go home a better driver and you will have a BIG GRIN on your face.

If you’d like more track time, during the lunch break you’ll have the opportunity to participate in touring laps, at normal highway speeds. The best part is that you can take family and friends with you for the touring laps, with no helmets required. This is a great way to refine your driving line, locate landmarks on the track, and increase your comfort level.

Onsite Tech Inspection and Registration runs from 4:00pm- 9:00pm on Friday, October 11th, at the Host Hotel – TBD. For those unable to make it on Friday, tech inspections and registration will continue from 7:00-8:00am on Saturday morning at the track. Student drivers (everyone other than instructors) are required to have a Tech Inspection Form completed by a qualified shop before presenting their cars for the onsite tech inspection and registration. Tech Inspection forms are available via the CIRPCA website or via clubregistration.net upon enrollment.
