Flight 37

October 24, 2014 @ 11:00 am - October 25, 2014 @ 3:00 pm

The 2014 Flight 37 Experience

*Time is Running Out – Your Flight 37 Shirts Must Be Ordered by Sunday, October 5th to Ensure Delivery Before Flight*

The Arizona Region of the Porsche Club of America invites you to participate in our annual Concours and Car Show, now in its 37th year.  As we did in 2013, our 37th Annual Concours d’Elegance will be held in conjunction with the 4th Annual Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: “Horses and Horsepower”.  This is a great opportunity to show your car, raise money for charity, and enjoy some great polo at the same time.  This year our club events are held on Friday and Saturday, October 24th and 25th.

  • Volunteers – Our club activities are successful because of volunteers.   Please consider volunteering for the some parts of Flight 37.  Help is needed during the reception, the Concours and the awards banquet.  Thanks in advance for your help.
  • Schedule:

Mid September – Registration opened on September 15, 2014.  As we did last year, registration will be through the http://www.MotorSportReg.com website.  The direct link for the event is:  http://www.motorsportreg.com/events/flight-37-westworld-of-scottsdale-polo-field-pca-arizona-869524.   Please make sure that you have provided all the details pertaining to your guests and vehicle so that this data pulls properly into your registration record.  Registration will be based on either package or a la carte selections.  The package selection will provide a discount from purchasing the events separately.  All packages include the entry of one car into the Concours and one casual short sleeve shirt.

Additional car entries can be added in the Concours category.  Additional shirts must be added through the Additional Shirts section.  As an added benefit, each registrant will receive a pass to the Molina Fine Jewelers Drivers & Players VIP Lounge during the event on Saturday. This pass is a $300 value if you purchase it online before the event.  For more information on the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships, go to http://www.thepoloparty.com.
