2024 PCA-CWR Tour & Drive Rules and Conduct – MAIN POINTS


Please read and be familiar with full event rules.  You will be required to acknowledge your acceptance of the rules prior to each event.  IGNORANCE OF THE RULES IS NOT AN EXCUSE.

  1. SAFETY FIRST, use common sense & have fun.We want everyone to have fun while sharing the experience and passion we all have for our cars. Please, always be mindful of the safety of others while we share PUBLIC roads and facilities. We are subject to and must follow the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act.
  2. THE WORLD IS NOT YOUR RACETRACK! A tour is not a competitive driving event! We drive spirited cars and enjoy spirited driving. Knowing this, your tour planner(s) attempt to plan tours on windy, scenic, secondary/back roads to provide the most spirited driving experience possible within the confines of the law.Please, be respectful of your fellow tour members, the communities we drive through and the laws of the land.PCA-CWR is a member of the community and as such, we’re visible ambassadors of our club! Please be mindful of this during any club sanctioned event.
  3. Attending the Driver's meeting is COMPULSORY (drivers and passengers must attend)!Please arrive at the event at least 30 minutes prior to the start. Arrive prepared with a full tank of gas. A drivers’ meeting immediately precedes the planned tour departure. Tour route, rest points, group divisions, GPS & Contact information, driver advisories and other matters of importance will be discussed. PCA-CWR Tour Rules and conduct policies will also be reviewed. Failure to attend or to comply with the associated rules can result in removal from the event.
  4. Drive at a safe speed. It is PCA policy to obey all laws, but there is no substitute for common sense and good judgment – nothing ruins a fun day like an incident. Test your car and your abilities, at an appropriate venue. PCA-CWR offers several track events throughout the year where you can test limits safely.
  5. Keep the car behind you in sight. This is especially important when clearing an intersection or making a turn onto a new road. If you see the car behind you lagging, slow for them while keeping the car in front of you in sight as well allowing the group to stay together.
  6. Keep your position.  Be familiar with the car in front and behind you (work out your position by introducing yourself to drivers directly in front and behind you before starting the tour).
  7. Keep the group together. Maintain a safe following distance but do your best to keep up with the group.  DO NOT LAG! Lagging makes it difficult and confusing for other drivers. If your driving style or vehicle makes it challenging to keep up, please talk to the tour director and ask to be moved to the rear of the group or to a different group.We want to accommodate everyone so we can all have fun.
  8. Please stay with the group that you were assigned to at the start of the drive.If you want to change groups, you may do so by coordinating with the tour director group leads at the next rest stop.
  9. Do not depart the group along the route unless other cars/drivers are made aware.Other tour members may be tempted to follow you, taking them away from the group tour. If you must depart at some point, make the tour/group leader aware and they will announce your intention to depart.
  10. Do not drive faster than your comfort level.Tours Leaders and Group Leaders are mindful of all participants.Drive at a pace you’re comfortable and the group will adjust.
  11. Do NOT drive faster than the posted speed limit! – No explanation necessary, just don’t!
  12. No passing… Maintain your position in the drive or tour! This is key to maintaining a safe, fun event.  Our goal is for a fun event with no incidents.There is no shame in following or being a slower car. The purpose of these events is to make new friends and have fun, so please appreciate other fellow drivers making an effort to participate safely and respectfully.If you want to change your position within your group, you may do so at the next stop by notifying the group leader and making the group (especially your immediate neighbours) aware of the change. Frequently, non-Porsche cars may become mixed with your group. When you pass non-event drivers, be courteous, and remember that we are ambassadors of the Porsche Club of America, Canada West Region and all of its members.
  13. Use the next rest point to catch up. In larger groups, we may get split up.  Don't panic. Follow the route and stop at the next rest point where we will wait for you. There is no need to drive fast to catch up.
  14. If something happens, stop and call the Tour Leader or the Sweep. If you have an incident or break down or if you see one, stop to help and call the tour director immediately.
