Club Night at Porsche Centre Doncaster


Tuesday 18th August 2015


Peter Fitzgerald – Approaching 40 Years in Motor Sport

PCV will celebrate its 40th Anniversary on August 26th, having been founded to create opportunities for Porsche drivers to celebrate the marque, socialise and, above all, to explore their cars' performance.

We are excited to hold our 40th Anniversary Club Night at the stunning new Porsche Centre Doncaster. The format of the evening will follow our programme of socialising over finger food and drinks (beer, wines and soft drink), topical presentations, meeting new members and hearing about competition results, social news and forthcoming events. 

Long term Club member Peter Fitzgerald has certainly been exploring the performance of many different Porsches and other makes over 39 years, both within the Club and beyond, around Australia and around the world. Starting with a 911S in the 1977 Aust Sports Car Championship, to Carreras, 968CS, 993RSCS and 996 and 997GT3 Cup cars, he has competed and won in a multitude of racing series, as well as being Outright PCV Champion in 3 of the last 4 years.

He has been Australian Production Car Champion twice in various makes, won the Porsche Cup, won the Aust GT Prod Car Ch in a 993RSCS in 1997 and been placed in all the years from '95-'99, been placed in the Aust SCC twice, in the Aust Sports Sedan/GT Ch twice, in the Nations Cup twice, in the Carrera Cup three times, and has multiple wins and places in endurance events at Winton, Eastern Creek, Bathurst and Sandown. He has raced in the World Endurance Ch in a Lola-Chev, the IMSA Camel GTP Ch in a 935K3 at the Daytona 24 hour, at the Nurburgring 24 hour in a 996 Cup car and 997GT3RSR, and is currently contesting the Aust GT Ch in an Audi R8 LMS, now a Porsche relative!

Come and hear Peter, with Will Darvall as MC, as he talks about his enduring and successful competition career, which is approaching its own 40th Anniversary! 

We will also hear briefly from PCV Member Andrew George regarding his expert knowledge on the new rules regarding Vic Roads Club Permits and modified cars.  Andrew is now an approved VASS assessor and happy to offer advice to fellow PCV members.  His talk will focus on roll cages given the motorsport theme to this evening.
