The Florida Crown Region (FCR) was chartered on June 16, 1960 as the Central Florida Region and changed it’s name to Florida Crown Region on January 25, 1975. The Region is very active in monthly Socials, Driver Education, Autocross, Concours, and other special car related events. In 1999, the region added Club Racing to it’s list of many events. Florida Crown has monthly social dinner gatherings in the north and south areas of the Region. Some of these have hosted special speakers, such as Bill Warner of Amelia Island Concours, the late Bob Snodgrass, and world famous road racer Hurley Haywood of the Brumos Racing Team, among many other notable car enthusiasts.
Florida Crown Region Board meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at various locations around Jacksonville. See the EVENTS section for specific locations and dates. All club members are invited and urged to attend the Board meetings and to become involved in some of the leadership positions of the club.
Florida Crown is a very active group with various activities throughout the month. We hold scheduled Dinner Socials on the second Tuesday night of each month. FCR has both north and south region monthly social events, at various venues, to allow members throughout the entire FCR Region to gather in Porsche fellowship. You are invited to attend all of these fun filled evenings to talk Porsche, meet new people, participate in our monthly prizes and more. Check the EVENTS section of this web site for current happenings.
We also hold Drive & Dines (D&D) events where we travel to various interesting places, typically within a few hours drive of our Region. It’s really fun to have 20, 30, or more Porsche’s cruising down the road together to an interesting location. Again, check the EVENTS section for current and future D&D events.
Florida Crown provides opportunities to learn more about driving your excellently engineered Porsche through our Autocrossing, Driver Education (DE’s), and PCA Club Racing. For a fun day of Porsche comaraderie, enjoy participating in one of the FCR quarterly Autocrosses. Here you’ll learn to safely navigate a course of cones while competing to see who can have the quickest time. Then spend a weekend at a Drivers Education event to test your driving proficiency on a track at speed. If you still yearn for more challenge in driving your Porsche, you can work your way into Porsche Club Racing.
