Frequently Asked Questions
Tours typically last anywhere from 2-8 hrs.
What kinds of tours does Peachstate offer?
Various types: exploration tours, destination tours, scenic tours, and driving tours. Sometimes we visit natural beauty, sometimes we visit a special destination, like a museum, for example; sometimes we drive to scenic areas, and sometimes, we just drive for the pleasure twisty roads and Porsches amply provide. All tours strive to have interesting routes and/or unique or fun destinations.
Do I have to sign an insurance waiver?
Yes, like every other PCA event involving a moving vehicle, it is necessary to sign the waiver. Peachstate obtains liability insurance for these events, and seeks to maintain the utmost safety during the driving tours.
Will I have to have a valid driver's license?
Yes, you will need to show your valid driver's license at registration.
How often will we take a rest stop?
Usually every hour or so. These areas will have adequate parking and services, including restrooms.
Can I drive spiritedly?
Tour driving always respects speed limits and normal rules of the road. We must stricly control our speed or we can lose our insurance. We fully embrace spirited, safe driving on the track or autocross course which are much safer venues due to the lack of traffic hazards, road hazards, cars driving in the same direction, safety workers present, groupings according to skill levels, etc. Please drive courteously and patiently, as multi-car caravans always require a certain amount of patience in keeping groups together.
What if I get lost?
Each car will recieve an instruction set containing route instructions, rest stop locations, address and telephone number of the restaurant where the tour will end (if applicable), and the cell phone number of the Tour Leader. Other than the lead and last car, drivers should always be able to see the car in front and the car behind in their rear-view mirrors.
What kind of behavior should tour participants avoid?
Any kind of "driver attitude" such as unsafe driving, speeding, passing, and using alchohol or drugs will be grounds for being excluded from the tour.
How should I prepare for a tour?
Fill up your Porsche with gas before you arrive - don't be the person that has to make the tour stop prematurely because you weren't prepared. Also, check your tire pressure and tread depth. Make sure that your windshield is clean, and that your mirrors are properly adjusted for maximum visibility.
Do I have to drive with my headlights on?
