It is with a heavy heart I'm sharing that Gavin Riches passed away on Jan. 9. Gavin was a longtime member of Suncoast PCA and husband of our Board member and Chief Track Instructor Amy Riches. If you ever met Gavin it didn't take long to realize you were in the presence of an amazing man. Kind, considerate and so passionate about motorsports! He willingly shared his extensive knowledge of cars, driving and safety with our DE program participants! He will be greatly missed. Amy has set up a webpage for your to share your condolences and make a contribution to enable her to take his ashes back to his farm in New Zealand (any excess funds will be donated to a charity to be set up in his name). The website link is: everloved.com/life-of/gavin-riches/donate/?flow=205

Cards may be sent to their shop: AutoQuest Motorsports, 14498 S. Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers, FL 33912

​Ready for Life – PCA Holiday Charity Challenge

First, contributing Suncoast members should look at this week’s final Speedometer graphic; you literally buried the indicator needle!

The Speedometer hit 11,150 MPH ($11,150) exceeding the 10,000 MPH top indicated speed (dollars) on the gauge for Ready for Life, “Changing Lives Beyond Foster Care,” our chosen charity for the PCA Holiday Charity Challenge. The 2021 New Year will start out as an opportune time for the RFL kids and young adults benefited by your commitment and generosity. For those busy members who have not yet contributed, you may yet do so by using the button link, “Donate to Ready for Life,” on this page.

​Porsche Profile Strikes Gold at the 2020 PCA National Awards Ceremony

Lightning strikes again! The November/December 2019 issue of Suncoast Porsche Profile was selected “Best Newsletter” in Class V at the 2020 PCA National Awards presentation held on August 19, 2020. Usually done at Parade, this year, due to the pandemic, the awards ceremony was done virtually on YouTube. You can see the entire event at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXMl2jFTb-Q

The selected issue was great because of the writings of our columnists: John Vita, Fiona Brooks, Pedro Bonilla, Tom Briest, George Wienhold and Jim Hoey; our erstwhile contributors: Hans-Joachim Krenz, Bill and Mary Caldwell, Bill Sumansky, Rich Tillotson, Denise Remus, Dan Engel, Kevin Pizzarello and our European Correspondent—Jeremy Swiger. Then there were the unseen workers: Assistant Editor—Ralph Porzio, Graphic Artist—Dave McGowan, and Copy Editor—Penny Sippel. They all deserve this award, and we thank them for their help in achieving this honor for our region once again.

Thank you all who have written, or are now writing for Profile.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Suncoast PCA members and friends,

We are experiencing an unprecedented public health emergency with restricted travel and cancellations of major events to eliminate gatherings of large crowds.  We are all concerned about Covid 19 and it’s potential impact on our families and friends. 

We want you to know we are closely monitoring the CDC and health department recommendations. We are evaluating each of our member events to determine whether we should cancel or postpone. We will post updates on our website, Facebook page, and through focused email blasts.

We want to make sure we support the health and safety of our members.  Remember: 

  • Stay home when you are sick 
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds 
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue into the trash and wash your hands
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me or another board member. Our contact information is published on www.SuncoastPCA.org and in the Profile magazine.  

Thank you for your patience as we continue to monitor this evolving situation.  

Denise Remus, President
