Porsche Crest New York to Montreal Run!

24 Heures of Montreal

Saturday April 7th 2018 - Sunday April 8th

The time has come!

The best way to start off the season is to shake out the cobwebs by taking that beautiful Porsche of yours for a nice little jaunt with fellow enthusiasts.

The road and fun with new friends

This is not a PCA event!

I REPEAT this is not a PCA event!!!

No “PCA Rallye” rules apply

We are all adults, there will not be the usual PCA hand holding.

There will be NO:

Stages
Scheduled bathroom breaks
Scheduled meal stops
Coffee breaks
Tea and crumpets
Gimmicks
Photo shoots
Meet and greets
Absolutely no hotel accommodations arranged

***All on you****

24 heures of Montreal!!!

Is a classic, OLD SCHOOL, Rallye

Get there when you get there! (I hope it’s after me).

There will be TWO Rallye access points:

First:

Fort Totten

Bayside, NY

Depart @4:30 am Naval observatory time

Second:

Mobil Station

30 Lincoln ave, Pelham NY 10803

(exit 12 off the Hutchinson)

Depart @ 5:30 am Naval Observatory Time

Final Destination:

Porsche Prestige Dealership

3535 Chemin de la Côte-de-Liesse, Saint-Laurent, QC H4N 2N5, Canada
whenever you get here.

First car to reach the Final destination wins the 24 Heures of Montreal cup!

Once all drivers have arrived at the final destination we will announce the celebratory gathering venue for the evening.


Departing: Montreal, Quebec @ 8am Sunday April 8th from: Porsche Prestige Dealership

3535 Chemin de la Côte-de-Liesse, Saint-Laurent, QC H4N 2N5, Canada

Sounds good, might be a few of us from NYC interested.

Kinda think it would be better to have a hotel destination for possible late arrivals from breakdowns or stragglers. But more so somewhere the cars can park together, drivers get a beer together after the dinner, or have coffee in the morning and everyone has a chance to meet if they want.

Your rally your rules but IME socializing with the crew and the cars is a big part of the gathering.

If you can say where the evening venue is it would be easier for those of us interested to find accomodation.

dealership is the main destination, as for breakdowns I think its a more appropriate spot for a repair option then a hotel? as for grabbing a beer we are announcing the spot when we all arrive in Montreal... Thanks for your advice I really do want to make it as cool as possible !

Thanks it was a good car. If only you could keep them all.

You have only a couple of posts on here, we PM'd you for more info, and got nothing back. The idea is cool, but to make this actually 'cool' its prolly a good idea to be much more forthcoming. What's your name, where are you from, is it just you organizing this or is this rally sponsored by the Porsche dealership in Montreal for some kind of publicity effort ? Are you advertising some kind of service, selling something ?
If you dont have a relationship with the Montreal dealer it's going to get very weird when a bunch of filthy Porsches roll onto the lot and park LOL. What's the connection ?

Also like i said what's the deal with Hotels ?. Where are you staying ? These trips are as much about the people on them as the driving. Right now you have a slick (sponsored) image and seemingly thats all.

Its cool that it's not some PCA snoozefest but In terms of organization you want to get a bunch of people together without obvious planning, or consideration of what this experience is, beyond driving as fast as you can for 6 hours. Trust me a base Hotel for Sat afternoon / eve to hang out and look at the cars and meet each other is a really big part of it.

From reading your posts on the gram you drive a 997. So from my G body perspective The Gumball rally / race aspect seems completely slanted in your favor. For it to be fun and fair you should divide the car groups at the very least by Air / Water.

New IG, FB pages. No posts on PP, I don't see this posted on R3nnl1st ... I work in Advertising and right now this feels a bit like its building to something ? Branded piece, maybe you have a Marque themed social media channel ?

Come on dude, this supposedly takes place in less than two weeks, you want drivers then out of courtesy you need to give details. Secondly if you are seriously looking for NY based cars then cross post this to tech. You will get a lot more views.

Yeah!
This is real.
I know the guy who put it together.
Just a bunch of guys who have met through PCA and other events going up on a road trip looking to meet new people that are looking to enjoy their cars and as SM70911 put it its as much about the people as it is the cars. Sometimes, in advertisement and in life, simplicity works. Don't over complicate things. Just show up or don't.
Just for the record, as record keeping has become of the utmost importance to PCA and Pelican board guru types, I have also just joined this forum. I have been utilizing this awesome database of knowledge for years but have not taken the plunge into conversations because of the gurus that "guard" these pages.
Thanks to Dave and this event I am becoming more a part of this community. That's really the idea here, right? Can't wait to meet up with other like minded people. I don't have Facebook and I am not on other social media platforms. If someone needs to know more details about me, I will see you in person at this event. Not behind a computer screen.
Sm7011 it was almost a nice attempt at giving some great advice to someone, another member, someone who shares the same passion for Porsche. Better luck next time.

If you don't like the questions i asked about an event, or the way i ask them then you should take it up with the forum moderators. These are the people who determine whether content on these threads is inappropriate.

24 Heueres I have PM'd you
