Many thanks & best regards,



It’s hard to believe that four years have passed since our last factory visit but as I mentioned at our AGM in December we are delighted to have secured a visit for 2013. The date set for our visit is Friday 17th May 2013 and we are now in the final phase of organising this very exciting visit to Porsche Factory & Museum, Zuffenhausen & Ruf Automobile, Pfaffenhausen.

Places will fill quickly, so book early to avoid missing out on this super opportunity to see some of the workings of Porsche AG.

Important note; Porsche Club Ireland is only facilitating the organising of this visit and we cannot accept any liability as outlined in the attached Disclaimer.

To book your place for the factory visit you must send a non refundable cheque of €100 per person & a signed copy of the attached disclaimer to our club secretary as an expression of intent and to book your place. The money paid at this point will go towards the cost of the coach transfers while in Germany and some meals.

Should this trip be oversubscribed, those not successful in securing a place will have their cheque returned. It is important to note that numbers are restricted for the factory visit, so as a result priority will have to be given to PCI paid up members, after that we will accept family & friends to accompany members. As we are restricted to 40 people on this trip, we will set a limit of two person’s max, including the fully paid up member.

Cheques should be made payable to Porsche Club Ireland and the signed Disclaimer (including your home address) must be sent to the following address, it is on receipt of your cheque and Disclaimer that your name will be added to the list.
