Spa-Francorchamps is a household name for probably all motorsport fans around the globe. The race track there is a birthplace of many heroic stories, such as Mika Hakkinen’s legendary maneuver against Michael Schumacher in 2000. Spa’s Grand Prix circuit is one of the most demanding in the world and will once again be the venue for the Porsche Club Francorchamps Days (PCF Days) on April 13 and 14 in 2024.
The Porsche Club Francorchamps Days have been a fixed date since 2001
Experience the pure fascination of motorsport with the Porsche Club Francorchamps Days! This exclusive event offers Porsche enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy the world-famous Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps to the full. Founded in 1994, the Porsche Club Francorchamps welcomes the Porsche world to Belgium for the 22nd time this year. This top-class driving event has been taking place there since 2001.
Every year, two to three thousand of Zuffenhausen’s finest make the pilgrimage to the Spa-Francorchamps Formula 1 circuit to visit the PCF Days.
For an entire weekend, the world’s most beautiful race track, according to the organizers, is firmly in Porsche hands. Every year, two to three thousand of Zuffenhausen’s finest make the pilgrimage to the Spa-Francorchamps Formula 1 circuit to visit the PCF Days. The extensive supporting program offers everything a Porsche fan’s heart desires. It ranges from plenty of on-track action and a rally through the Ardennes to the traditional Porsche parade on Sunday afternoon.
During the driving breaks, it is worth taking a look at the paddock. Various exhibitors will be presenting suitable products related to the beloved sports car from Zuffenhausen. Even the youngest visitors can try to set good lap times around Spa in the simulator. Of course, there is also an exclusive evening program with a barbecue and bar. The whole family will get its money’s worth here! Over 10,000 visitors are expected.
The program of the Porsche Club Francorchamps Days (PCF Days)
Participants of the PCF Days have a whole range of different driving events to choose from. There are three categories. Family & Parade, Rally and the Saturday & Sunday Series. The Family & Parade tickets offer the opportunity to take part in the Porsche Parade round and – guided by an instructor – to get a taste of the racetrack. Whether in an F-model 911 or in the brand-new 992 Cup, all newcomers to the racetrack will be able to safely complete three laps of the Grand Prix circuit under professional guidance.
Porsche drivers who prefer to take the beautiful back roads of the Ardennes under their wheels are in the right place at the rally. On Saturday, it starts at 8:15 a.m. with a joint breakfast for all participants. After a short briefing, the rally participants will set off on the first stage at 9 am. Equipped with a lovingly prepared roadbook and a special souvenir badge, they will set off. They will experience an extensive tour of the Ardennes until lunch.
After a one-and-a-half-hour lunch break with a hot and cold buffet, the second stage begins. This offers exciting roads and great views until 4 p.m., before the winners of the rally are crowned in the late afternoon. As a bonus, participation in the rally also entitles the driver to a ride in the traditional Porsche parade lap on Sunday. Two surprises from the organizers are still awaiting approval. Just this much: it could also get down to business off the tarmac.
Hobby racers and trackday enthusiasts will also get their money’s worth at the PCF Days.
For those who like it really fast, the Porsche Club Francorchamps naturally also has the right packages. If you want to push your Porsche through Eau Rouge and Blanchimont at top speed for the first time, the Discovery & Classic Series is the place to be. The daily three rounds of “open pitlane driving” allow two hours of driving time each day. In addition to Porsche 911 and co, Taycan and Panamera are also permitted to participate. Street tires are mandatory for all. But beware: the number of tickets is strictly limited. A day ticket costs 625 euros, for both days 1,220 euros, each including paddock access, welcome package, food and drinks.
Experienced race track drivers for whom two hours of driving time is not enough should take the Sport Series. Here, only road-tired sports cars are allowed on the track as well. The three runs per day last one hour each. Sufficient time to work extensively on your racing line. And it is the perfect environment to get to know your own Porsche better. This group is therefore suitable for advanced sports drivers. One day costs 945,- Euro, both in a package 1.790,- Euro.
Even historic race cars can be seen at the PCF Days
Absolute race track connoisseurs and experts alike will get sorted at PCF Days. In the Expert Series, only vehicles with racing tires are permitted. The drivers can get everything out of their machines in the daily three hours of driving time. An absolute spectacle, not only for the drivers.
