The East Midlands Region (R8) covers Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Rutland and part of Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire. We are a friendly, active region holding several events every year.
Our 3 main events cater for a wide range of interests. The first features a Historic Meeting weekend at Donington, the iconic racetrack in our region. This meeting has grown in popularity every year and we regularly have around 150 Porsche arrive to enjoy up to 3 days of racing.
Next, there’s the Porsche Pageant and Concours. This is a family day out held at the famous Chatsworth House and Gardens in Derbyshire. Then we have our Tour Of The East Midlands (TOTEM) which is scenic drive of around 100 miles, incorporating the picturesque roads and lanes of Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Rutland, Leicestershire and Derbyshire ending with a group meal. Many of our events are kindly sponsored by our local Porsche Centre Leicester.
We also hold weekends away, meals out, and fun days on Curborough sprint track, winter talks and a quiz night. The Region has an active group of local members racing in the Porsche Club speed championship
Our informal monthly meetings are held at the spectacular Coopers Arms, Weston on Trent situated south of the A50 near Shardlow. Meetings are on the first Monday of every month (including bank holidays) at 8 pm. Some members arrive at 7 pm for a drink and a chat and/or a carvery meal. These are always busy with 20 – 30 cars attending.
