Arrive & Drive Racing
Area Racing Manager – Rusty Pruden, Central Indiana Region PCA
Join us for some low-keyed, fun racing!
In the 8 months since starting the Arrive & Drive League, we’ve grown from 24 to over 240 members! Our sessions now typically have 25-45 drivers who enjoy racing with their PCA Sim Racing friends.
We race twice each week:
- Sundays at 3:00 PM Eastern / 12:00 PM Pacific
- Mondays at 8:00 PM Eastern / 5:00 PM Pacific
Most sessions follow the format:
- 50 minutes of open practice
- 25 minutes of open qualifying
- 45-minute race
Arrive & Drive features a no planning, no practice, “just show up and run whenever you have the time” race environment! If you are serious about winning, please look at the other terrific PCA Sim Racing series and events offered.
In Arrive & Drive, drivers from four of the five PCA Sim Racing skill levels, Pro, Club, Sport, and Challenge all race together on the track. Most sessions handicap the faster drivers facilitating closer racing between all our drivers. Sportsmanship, camaraderie, and clean racing are stressed.
Did we say just for fun?
We’re not designed for learning and skill development like in PCA Sim Racing Zone Group eDE sessions. However, our venues may somewhat mirror upcoming PCA Series or Team Racing sessions just to give our drivers more seat time before their competitive Series and Team events.
Unlike other PCA Sim Racing Series, where drivers’ performance and their finishing order are tracked, Arrive & Drive does not follow finishing orders, rankings, and standings. Winning and standings are not important to Arrive & Drive!
Cars and Tracks
All races will use iRacing’s Porsches exclusively. Cars currently used include the GT3 R, the GT3 992 Cup, the Ruf RT 12 R Track, and the Cayman GT 4 along with some multi-car races designated by PCA Class. In the future, we may also use the new Porsche Hybrid and Porsche E-racer.
We use a variety of 30 tracks from all over the globe. These are tracks that are active in other PCA Sim Racing series and events. We try to avoid tracks that do not provide drivers with multiple opportunities to drive them after purchase.
New in 2023
Starting in 2023, we will eliminate our “racing seasons” structure. All sessions will be individual and will not be assigned to a season.
Tracks and/or cars may (or may not) repeat each week, you’ll just have to Arrive & Drive to see and join in the fun!
