The Roadrunner Region heard it’s name called several times in the awards banquets at Porsche Parade. The region was named First Runner Up in the 2017 Ferry Porsche Award. The Ferry Porsche Trophy was named in honor of the late Dr. Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche and first presented at Parade in 1961. The trophy is presented to the outstanding PCA region of the year that demonstrates the highest standards in meeting the objectives and ideals of the Porsche Club of America and “In Appreciation of Loyalty to the Porsche Car and the Porsche Idea.” Historically, PCA awarded the Ferry Porsche Trophy to one region. In 2010, in an effort to recognize more regions for their outstanding achievements, the PCA Executive Council decided to award first and second runners-up for the Ferry Porsche Trophy. The award states ‘In Appreciation of Loyalty to the Porsche Car and Porsche Idea”.
