Rocky Mountain Region’s “Grand Loop” Tour to Durango
July 27, 2022 – July 30, 2022

The RMR Grand Loop Tour is a unique opportunity to visit some of the Rocky Mountain West’s most scenic places. In an epic 4 day tour, drivers and their companions will travel with like-minded Porsche enthusiasts starting from Ft. Collins. This extensively planned, 700 mile driving tour bypasses dull interstate highways in favor of more exciting two-lane highways. These roads are often marked in blue on road maps. Travelers may encounter antelope, bison, elk, deer, and even a moose or a bear, so stay on the lookout for wildlife and bring your best camera! The tour officially ends in Durango, Colorado. Adventurers may consider taking the opportunity to use Durango as a pivot point for a Utah or Arizona Parks adventure before heading home.

Registration will close at midnight on Monday July 3rd. Register on MotorsportsReg

RECARO “Profi SPG XL” RACING SEATS UPDATE: The Driver Education Committee has been made aware of an immediate recall of Recaro “Profi SPG XL” racing seats which were produced from 2017 to 2022 due to failure issues. We ask that you forward this message to all drivers in your DE programs and post to your social media platforms. To enroll on Recaro’s list for replacement seats, please go to the following link. The letter which Recaro sent to the purchasers of these units is here. We are not requiring the Tech Inspection teams to monitor for these seats as it is up to the individual drivers to make a decision how to proceed with Recaro’s recall notification. We do, however, want to issue a warning based on Recaro’s recall and make our DE drivers aware of the situation. (posted 11 Jun)
