    Following this breakfast event we will convoy together at 9am to the 11th Annual Dundarave Show and Ride right in the heart of delightful Dundarave Village. This is PCA-CWR Good Works event with the purpose of raising money for medical research to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis, a deadly genetic disease affecting children and young adults across Canada. Money will be raised by means of a donation to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for having your Porsche in the event. Donations of $50 or more will be issued a tax receipt by the CCFF. We had a great variety of Porsche types and model years on display in previous shows, with over 90 cars participating last year, and maybe this year we’ll hit the 100 Porsches mark, and we might just be able to fit them all in on the 2400 block!

    The 24 Hours of Le Mans

    The 24 Hours of Le Mans (French: 24 Heures du Mans) is the world’s oldest active sports car race in endurance racing, held annually since 1923 near the town of Le Mans, France. It is one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world and is often called the “Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency”. The event represents one leg of the Triple Crown of Motorsport; other events being the Indianapolis 500, and the Monaco Grand Prix.

    Since 2012, the 24 Hours of Le Mans has been a part of the FIA World Endurance Championship. In 2017, it will be the third round of the season. The circuit on which the 24 Hours of Le Mans is run is named the Circuit de la Sarthe, after the department that Le Mans is within. It consists of both permanent track and public roads that are temporarily closed for the race. Since 1923, the track has been extensively modified, mostly for safety reasons, and now is 13.629 km in length. Although it initially entered the town of Le Mans, the track was cut short in order to better protect spectators. This led to the creation of the Dunlop Curve and Tertre Rouge corners before rejoining the old circuit on the Mulsanne.
