ON THE COVER:

In the decade since Scott Sturdy and his band of ’02

Group brothers and sisters convened the first ‘Gathering of

Perfectly Aged BMW Motorcars’ at the Westbend Winery in

Lewisville, the event has grown by leaps and bounds. It has

outgrown its original vineyard venues, shed its ‘vineyard’

label, and turned into an official BMW CCA Regional Event.

Titled simply The Vintage and still overseen by Sturdy, it

now takes place annually in Old Salem Village in Winston-

Salem. And in this correspondent’s not-so-humble opinion,

it easily rivals quite a few of the National Oktoberfests of

recent years in both attendance and ambiance. Here’s why.

The Gathering this past May was even bigger than

last year’s record show. It attracted 280 ‘show’ cars – BMWs ranging from Isettas and Neue Klasse

sedans to the latest models allowed by Vintage rules, in this case BMWs from the late ‘80s – and

one lone motorcycle! On Saturday, the cars created a gorgeous multi-colored panorama of BMW’s

history as they lined the historic village’s Main Street from end to end. Their drivers had come to

from as far away as Texas, Oklahoma, Canada, Maine and Minnesota, which kind of put the lie to the

PAUL HOECKE Notes from the road

Freedom of the Road

This month, as we celebrate Independence

Day, a lot of us will probably do our celebrating in

traditional fashion – you know, watching parades,

having backyard cookouts, kicking up sand at

beach parties, doing a bit of fishing, or taking in

a sports event, live or on the tube. For the most

part, it’s pretty much the same for Yours Truly,

except for one small twist. Invariably, the Fourth

causes me to dream about all those open roads

out there, just waiting to be explored.

I guess it’s an ingrained mindset that harks

back to my working days. Although I retired from

the daily rat race some years back, the Fourth still

says ‘vacation time’ to me – preferably the start

of a long break. I’m sure that too is something I

have in common with millions of people – except

that even back when I could only count on two or

three weeks’ free time, I always preferred my long

vacations to be the rolling wheels kind. (Just by

way of an example: Our first vacation after getting

married turned into a 3,500-mile tour!) And now

that my time belongs to me alone, the lure of the

open road is greater than ever.

Not that I don’t enjoy a stint at a beach resort

or mountain cabin – actually more the former

than the latter. But sitting on my hindquarters

for any length of time has never been my style,

no matter how pleasant the place may be. In my

book, places like that are way stations, good for a

few days’ layover; but ultimately, it’s the journey

that counts. Chances are you disagree; in fact,

some of you probably think I’m slightly nuts. But

that’s just me; probably my inner nomad’s fault.

As I see it, our world is too full of new sights,

places and things to do for me to ignore them –

like by hopping on a plane. (Ugh!) Which is why

the minute I hear (or think) the word ‘vacation’,

my instant response is: ‘Road Trip’.

At first, it’s purely a Pavlovian response; an

impulse akin to the proverbial old warhorse pricking

up its ears at the bugle’s sound. But my head

isn’t far behind. It too says ‘Go’ – except it tells

me to be realistic. Since going solo isn’t much

fun, I’ll have to muster solid reasons to convince

any likely co-travelers, but especially my Significant

Other, that driving five hundred miles just for

the heck of it is a Good Idea.

No problemo! With years and years of experience

behind me, I have assembled this neat little

array of pro-road trip arguments. Collectively, I

call it my Freedom of the Road list. So if you’re

ready, allow me to walk you through the entire rationale

as I plead my case.

For starters, I’ll mention the sheer exhilaration

of just driving. (Think Marlon Brando in ’The

Wild Ones’, not Clive Owen in ‘The Hire’.) I mean,

for the likes of us, BMW fans one and all, what

better way is there to savor the Joy of Driving than

on an extended trip, right? The Song of the Six

(or Eight or Four) under the hood; the unruffled

response of the suspension; the way the car

smoothly handles every turn, mile after mile – accompanied

by a Bach toccata or Willy Nelson’s

‘On the Road Again’, it’s poetry in motion.

Of course, that argument alone may not turn

the tide in my favor. In fact, it probably won’t. It

works fine for me, happily ensconced behind the

wheel, but a lot less so for anyone in the passenger

seat, no matter how comfortable and adjustable

that may be. So my next step is a head-on

attack: “We can stop and stretch our legs any

time we want to, Dear.” This carries considerable

weight with anyone who has spent hours cooped

up in a packed airplane, confined to a cramped

seat with hardly any legroom, nothing edible to

speak of, and an almost inaccessible toilet. (Do I

2 TARHEEL CHAPTER FOOTNOTES http://www.tarheelbmwcca.org


need mention the TSA gauntlet?)

If this approach doesn’t fly – (So sorry, bad

pun!) – I take the psychological tack. Call it an

adult version of my old response to the all-toofamiliar

query from the backseat: “Are we there

yet, Dad?” “No, but let’s look for a place where we

can get ice cream.” I call it my Serendipity Appeal:

“Remember that wonderful (fill in name of location

here) we had to pass by the last time we were

down that way? We could stop there this time

around.” Or maybe: “We don’t have to stick to the

highway, Honey. There are lots of side roads we

can take through (fill in name of area) en route.

Here, take a look at the map.”

This kind of appeal often works, and for good

reason. It evokes images of sights one has always

wanted to see but hasn’t; or memories of places

bypassed on earlier trips. (Notice there’s a hint

of assuaging guilt here.) What’s more, the carrot

doesn’t even have to be the Taj Mahal, or for that

matter that great seafood place in Manteo. Heck,

we once did a 10-mile detour over some really

neat two-lane roads while trying to find (get this!)

The Editor’s Desk...

As we announced a few months back, we

will be implementing a change to how we deliver

the January and forward issues of FOOTNOTES.

From that point forward, the default delivery

method will be ONLINE VIEWING AND NO PA-

PER COPIES WILL BE MAILED.

In order for you to continue to receive FOOT-

NOTES via US Mail, you will need to “opt in”.

We are now in the process of putting together

information, for publication in a future issue, that

will explain this change in detail and what you

need to do to “opt in” to a paper copy. (Basically,

you will just need to email me with your name

and member number to “opt in”.)

Some have already sent me emails “opting

in”, and these have been noted––you won’t have

to notify me again.

As we approach year end, I will begin placing

an indicator within your US Mailed copy that will

indicate your delivery preference––that way you

will be able to double check your delivery preference

before we roll this out with the January issue.

Stay tuned for further details. -ed.


a Dairy Queen we’d missed on a previous trip to

the NC Zoo!

But if that still doesn’t close the sale, I whip

out my sharp pencil (well, a calculator will do)

and proceed to demonstrate how the proposed

road trip will be so much easier on our pocketbook

than any other modes of transportation.

And, mind you, that’s no bull; it’s serious economics.

In my experience, the money we’ve spent

on our road trips, even our longest ones, has invariably

come out to a fraction of what flying (plus

renting a car at the other end) would have cost. If

you want proof, do the math yourself. These days,

that’s not pleading poverty; it’s just plain smart.

Anyway, if nothing else, this closing argument will

always win the case for me.

You, dear reader, might still say: But what

about all that time on the road? In reply, I’d point

out that we’re talking about going on a vacation,

not a business trip. The objective is to cruise, not

get there as fast as possible. (Duh!) Then I’d cap

it off by referring you to Item One above, on the

assumption that you actually like driving. I trust

I’m not wrong about that.

One item on that list that I keep to myself

– in my hip pocket as it were – is my demand

for minimal distractions from all the gadgetry

populating dashboards nowadays. All those neat,

sophisticated and, Oh, so helpful accessories

remind me of the ‘Star Trek’ movie in which Jean-

Luc Picard, captain of the ‘Enterprise’, muses

about what it must have been like to navigate the

oceans with nothing but the wind to propel the

ship and the stars to steer by. It’s not quite like

that for me, but pretty close.

I know your reaction will probably be: Ah,

there he goes again, the old Luddite. I won’t

blame you. It’s what sells cars today. But the

truth is, I don’t hate technology; I merely draw

the line at what’s of use to me all the time (read

‘car phone’ or ‘mpg readout’), not once in a blue

moon. What fun is there in knowing that it’s

twenty miles to the nearest cafe serving coq au

vin when, by pulling over on a whim at a local eatery,

you may find the best culinary experience of

the trip. Besides, I’ll say it again: I’m talking about

vacationing here. It’s when you’re supposed to

enjoy the scenery, converse with your co-travelers,

maybe listen to music – not play with the touch

screen on the dash and endure the GPS incessantly

bleating “Recalculating” as you explore new

ways of getting to wherever ‘there’ is.

Yep, I’m of the old school. But I enjoy the

freedom it represents. And when in doubt, there’s

always a fallback: A quick stop to consult the

good ol’ paper map, and knowing that the sun

rises in the east and sets in the west. That’s what

real road trips are made of.

Come to think of it, I better quit here. One

dream, as yet unfulfilled, is doing my very own

One Lap of America. I have a route in mind, sort

of, and I’ve driven parts of it, here and there. But

I’ve never done it all in one swoop – boxed the

compass as old salts used to say. So it’s back to

the maps for me. I’ll let you know how it went

when I come up for air at the other end.

CLUB RACING REPORT

BY PAUL HOECKE

BW’s Podium, Pippy Percevers

These days, it may seem as if we’re always

starting this column with a disclaimer or two.

Rest assured; we’re not making it a habit. But

we do need to begin by correcting a goof in last

month’s CR report.

Contrary to what we said in our coverage of

the race at VIR, it was Dennis Pippy, not Shane

Gunn who won M3T in the endurance race. We’re

not entirely at fault in this; we were blindsided

by the initial results posted right after the race,

which listed Pippy as a DQ. However, as it turned

out, Pippy’s first-place finish in the class was reinstated

later when the DQ judgment was reversed

– but only well after we had filed our report. We

apologize for the error, especially to Shane, who

ran a great race.

Since the VIR race, there have been three CR

events in which our local racing crowd was represented

– and about which we have at least some

information: The Stan Parker Memorial Race at

Watkins Glen in early May; the Premier North

Central Region race at Mid-Ohio the last weekend

in May; and the race at NJMP the first weekend in

June.

The Glen race, a North Atlantic Premier Event

hosted by the Genesee Chapter, was a pretty big

affair. It drew 68 drivers who got to compete in

four races. However, only one local hot shoe, Dennis

Pippy showed up for the event. One of four

competitors in M3T, he ran in all four races with

pretty good results; i.e. a class win in one sprint,

which he finished leading a small parade of M3T

rivals; two second-place finishes in the other two

sprint races; and a third place in the enduro.

The field at the Mid-Ohio event was sizable

too – 53 registered drivers, including five from

our neck of the woods: Roman Lifson (IP), Sean

McKay (IS), and Gunn in M3T; plus Jason Crist

and James Clay, who (along with John Capestro-

Dubets) must have been there to co-drive or otherwise

support buddies (or clients), since neither

one was listed as having brought his own car. But

that’s all we can tell you at this point. For some

reason, race results were still unavailable more

than a week after the event, long after this report

had to be filed. We hope the delay was due to

nothing more serious than snafus in scoring.

Pretty much the same goes for last month’s

race at NJMP’s Thunderbolt circuit. As we went to

press, the only detail we had about it is that the

44-driver field included only one local hot shoe

– Pippy again, competing against five other M3T

drivers. In fact, he was the only driver from our

entire region! Evidently, he is pretty serious about

shooting for the class championship this season.

We expect to have the missing results from

Watkins Glen and NJMP in our next issue. We also

hope some of you were able to wheedle a pass

of some kind to the club race at VIR a couple of

weeks ago. A joint undertaking by our chapter

with the Delaware Valley folks, in conjunction with

the PCA, the event offered local racing fans a rare

opportunity to watch the season’s second club

race at our home track. But if you weren’t there,

we do expect to have chapter and verse about the

event in a future report.

Finally, as the 2012 CR season reaches its

midpoint, it seems appropriate to comment on

the ongoing changes in CR’s character, as evidenced

by the mix of cars and classes we’ve been

seeing on area tracks. From where we sit, it’s clear

these are gradual, maybe evolutionary changes.

On the one hand, we hear of cars that used to

figure prominently in local competition but are

6 TARHEEL CHAPTER FOOTNOTES http://www.tarheelbmwcca.org


now up for sale – two that come to mind are Andy

Watts’ super-fast #19 and Billy Revis’ #14 – and

K-Prepared cars are rarer than the proverbial

snowball in a Carolina summer. On the other

hand, classes such as I-Prepared seem to be following

the Olympic motto, Citius, Altius, Fortius

(Latin for ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’) – okay, maybe

not the ‘higher’ part, but you catch our drift. And

who hasn’t noticed the way the Spec classes – the

E36s, M3Ts and more recently the Spec E30s –

have developed an ever-higher profile on the CR

scene. Some of that may be attributed to basic

economics, akin to the idea behind the launch of

Improved Touring in the SCCA, years back. But

we think that it’s not just a blip; it’s a trend that’s

bound to broaden the CR base, by offering racers

more options in what they can bring to the

track, and by allowing more drivers to cross over

from other racing venues. If that is indeed so, it’s

bound to benefit Club Racing long-term.

Unfortunately, we have hardly anything to tell

you about our guys’ exploits on the NASA circuit.

Since we can’t show up in person at every race, we

rely on the websites of the two ‘local’ NASA Regions,

Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, to provide us

with news and results. But at this point, neither

region’s site has made available results of past

events – the Southeast’s ‘Pit Bull Brawl’ at CMP

in May; and Mid-Atlantic’s ‘March Madness’ at

VIR and ‘Spring Rumble’ at Summit Point in April.

Hopefully, the outcomes of all those races, as well

as last month’s events – Mid-Atlantic’s ‘Hyperfest

‘12’ at Summit Point and Southeast’s ‘June Jam’

at VIR – will become available in time for our next

report.

In sharp contrast, we do have stuff to report

from the local pro front, and it’s more good news.

In mid-May, Team BimmerWorld (BW) quickly

managed to put the mechanical snafus at Homestead

behind it and snagged an ST podium finish

in Round Four of the CTSCC series at NJMP!

This time, it was Dan Rogers’ and Seth Thomas’

turn. With a fifth-place finish at Barber, back

in March, under their belt, the duo added substantially

to their standing by piloting the Team’s

‘new’ #82 car to a remarkable second-place finish.


Having started 24th on the ST grid, Rogers kicked

off the chase. Despite a stop-and-go penalty he

incurred when he was forced to pull out of line

during a restart to avoid a bunch of stalled cars,

he marched through the field, reeling in twelve

cars before handing over to Thomas. With the car

in good position and teammates providing occasional

‘tail gunner’ support behind him, Thomas

then forged ahead to take the checker a mere 1.8

seconds behind the ST-winning RSR Honda.

The other two BW cars didn’t fare quite as

well. A hit just two turns into the first lap forced

the #80 car of James Clay and ‘JCD’ into the pits

for lengthy repairs. And some twenty laps later,

just as #80 was about to reenter the fray, the #81

328i driven by Greg Liefooghe and David Levine

suffered a punctured oil cooler, forcing it into the

pits for a while as well. As a result, Levine and

Lieefoghe completed only 71 of the race’s 83 laps

to finish 26th; while Clay and JCD completed only

54 laps, finishing 29th.

As Clay put it later, barring those two incidents,

“the full team could have filled the Top

Ten.” Considering that the race saw five fullcourse

yellows, which ate up twenty-four laps, we

think it is fortunate indeed – and a credit to their

driving skills – that Rogers and Thomas managed

to escape unscathed.

Since then, Team BW has had little time to

rest on their laurels, as last month’s schedule

comprised three races in rapid succession – Mid-

Ohio the second weekend; Road America two

weeks later; and Watkins Glen (the long course)

as this issue hit our website. (We suspect Clay

and JCD had reconnaissance in mind when they

showed up at the CR event at Mid-Ohio, just two

weeks before their CTSCC battle!)

We expect to have word on how the team

did in those races as results become available.

Meanwhile, as you read this, Clay and his band

of track warriors are looking forward to an almost

unbelievable four weeks’ break until their next engagement,

Round Eight at Indy the last weekend

this month. As always, we wish them the best of

racer’s luck.

ON THE COVER:

event’s ‘regional’ label. And vendors selling new

and used BMW parts, food stands, a Spaten Beer

Garden and displays by event sponsors – BMW

CCA, FLOW BMW, Liberty Mutual and the BMW

CCA Foundation – completed the day’s relaxed,

fair-like atmosphere.

But Saturday was only the piece de resistance,

as most of the registrants were there the

entire weekend, from Thursday night on. Friday

was road rally day, which started at the Farmington

Dragway. This gave the lead-feet in the group

a chance to clock some quick ETs before heading

down the rally route, which ended at the event’s

birthplace, Westbend, where food and drink

awaited them. And Sunday rounded out the Gathering

with a photo op at the historic Old Shell

Station in Winston-Salem. What with all the socializing,

imbibing and prize awards in between,

there’s no question in this correspondent’s mind

that, from the participants’ standpoint, the event

was virtually indistinguishable from an O’fest.

As for attendance, only partial numbers are

available, but they are impressive. A total of 540

vintage fans registered with their ‘show’ cars. In

addition, spectators who did not register but only

came to gawk, at Westbend on Friday or Old Salem

on Saturday, got in in free of charge, which

swelled attendance by a lot. By how much is just

about impossible to estimate accurately. But an

unofficial count by Yours Truly of cars in the peripheral

parking lots suggests there were a couple

of hundred cars there at any given time. And

counting turnover, there may have been twice as

many spectators’ cars that day, which works out to

an additional crowd of between 300 and 500 BMW

fans. And that makes it a huge crowd indeed.

If you were there, you’ll agree that this is

one event worth going to year after year. And if

you weren’t – well, let’s just say that this is one

vintage you should definitely try next time. Who

knows? It may turn you into an oenophile of the

older BMW variety too. ticed! -Ima Schraubenzieher,

Classics On The Green

New Kent Winery, New Kent VA

European Antique, Classic and Exotic Automobiles and Wine Festival - Saturday -

Sunday, September 15-16, 2012

Classic Automotive Events of Virginia, Inc., in

conjunction with the Central Virginia British Car

Club (CVBCC) is pleased to announce its 28th annual

Classics on the Green – European Automobile

Show and Wine Festival. The show and wine

festival will be held on Sunday, September 16,

2012, again this year at the New Kent Winery, 8400

Old Church Road - just off Route I-64, Exit 211 - in

New Kent, Virginia. The event opens to the public

at 11:00 AM and will continue until 4:00 PM (rain

or shine). The fun begins on Saturday, September

15th, with driving tours, sightseeing, shopping,

and a dinner at the winery.

Last year’s event was a huge success with

over 275 automobiles on display and many vendors

offering unique goods, services and even

luxury car test drives. This year the festival promises

to be even more spectacular, with a new show

field, new vendor areas, Hot Air Balloon rides,

and many other activities for the family’s enjoyment.

The Winery will feature a variety of exquisite

Virginia wines from its own Winery and other

Virginia Vineyards.

The featured marque for 2012 will be Rolls

Royce and Bentley. Additionally, there will be a

special display celebrating the 50th anniversary of

the MGB. Joining the Rolls and Bentleys will be

such extraordinary nameplates as: Austin Healy,

Aston Martin, MG, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lotus, Porsche,

Triumph, Mini, Morris Minor, BMW, Mercedes-

Benz, Saab, Volvo, Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini,

Pantera, and many more.

Please join us with your family and friends

for the 28th Annual Classics on the Green. Advance

purchase admission to the car show and

wine festival is $25.00 (advance purchase available

through the COTG website). Admission for

the car show only is $10.00 for adults (children

12 and under are free). A portion of the proceeds

will be donated to charity. Our beneficiary again

this year is the Richmond Fisher House at the Mc-

Guire Veterans Medical Center.

Additional information and ticket purchases

can be obtained through the COTG website: www.

New Kent Winery can be found at www.newkentwinery.com

obtained by calling Kevin Allocca at (804) 909-

SAY WHAT...

Send your questions and comments for “Say

What...” to Footnotes via email at footnotes@carolina.rr.com.

I have a 1993 BMW 325is with low miles for

her age (70,000). I havenever taken her to the

track, but I do like carving the mountain backroads.

With the age and mileage of my car, what

should I be looking at to replace in the suspension

to keep her in top shape?

Everything now in the suspension is stock

original, but no current problems with the ride.

Second question is: what would be the “one”

suspension upgrade that is the best bang for the

buck, that you really don’t need, but you gotta

have? -Brad Winesett

For most E36 cars (92-99 3 Series), you can expect

70k to be a pretty good end of life for the rear shock mounts

and therear trailing arm bushings. There are various

replacement parts for both of those failure locations and I

do prefer something better than the stock design for both

locations. Also, while they may not be trash quite yet,the

front control arm bushings in non-M cars are webbed rubber

with big air voids and I prefer either the M3 piece or a

urethane replacement in that location also.

If I was picking one upgrade, it really would depend

on my budget and what the goal was (lowering the car,

more responsive, what ride quality, etc). The suspension

is a system and all the parts work together, so picking one

piece may not be my preferred approach. If I was doing it

that way, I would likely go for a set of Bilstein struts and

shocks though. They last well and will give you improved

responsiveness and grip. For me, the shocks and struts are

the heart of a proper suspension system and while the other

parts should be chosen to work with them, dampers will

make the most difference on the feel and performance of any

BMW.

And keep in mind, one piece of a system will not likely

transform the car into something amazing, but one wrong

piece can defi nitely make the car irritating to drive and destroy

your ride quality. Work with the shop or vendor you

trust to make a good decision.
