Porsche Club of America


©2016 Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of all traffic laws at all times.

It’s clear at first glance -

in this car beats the heart of a pure-bred sprinter.

Muscular, athletic, powerful and challenging. The Cayenne GTS makes a clear statement.

On every straight and in every bend. The car is powered by an all-new 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6

engine with direct fuel injection (DFI). It produces a 0-62mph time of 5.2 thrilling seconds.

An all-rounder that enjoys the short sprint as much as the long distance. For exhilaration and

relaxation. And with a range of standard equipment that is far from ordinary.

The new Cayenne GTS.

Shifting Gears: What do YOU want from Founders’ Day?

By Jim Falgout, Region President

The month of May is one of our most

active, with plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy

your Porsche and your fellow Porsche enthusiasts. Be

sure to participate in at least one if not more events

this month!

Now I am really going to shift gears on you: I am

going to talk about Founders’ Day. Last year I heard

some members were asking “What is Founders’ Day?”

Basically, it has been several things through the years.

Some clubs have monthly membership meetings; the

Maverick Region does not. Some clubs have an annual

meeting. Founders’ Day is the closest thing we have

to an annual meeting. One important function that

occurs during Founders’ Day is the election of officers.

Our bylaws require it. However, if that was all we did, it

would not be much of a meeting.

As I said previously, it has been many things.

Previously, awards for our Autocross and Time Trial

series were given out during Founders’ Day. That

activity was changed to a different occasion. One thing

that does happen during Founders’ Day is a silent

auction to raise funds for our charitable endeavors.

We choose this event to support our charity, which has

proven to be a fun activity and helps the cause. In the

eight years that I have been a member, there have been

a variety of speakers and it has been “black tie optional.”

While some may not like that criteria, in reality very

few exercise that option. The event has been a sit-down

dinner with a cash bar, although none of this is set in

stone.

The reason I am bringing up Founders’ Day is that

attendance has been declining over the years. We

have begun re-evaluating the event. We want to know

what you want the event to be. In what way would

you like to celebrate the anniversary of the founding

of the Maverick Region? Please send any suggestions

to social@mavpca.org or president@mavpca.org. We

certainly want to hear from you.

Another thing we want to hear from you about is

what activity you would like to help make successful.

You didn’t think I would forget to solicit volunteers,

did you? Please contact Jim Gallegos at volunteers@

mavpca.org.

YOUR CLUB WANTS YOU . . . Volunteer! You will

be glad you did.

Many people contribute to the success of your club.

One of the most successful of your club’s endeavors is

Slipstream. It has won national awards. In addition to

the tireless work performed by the editors, the excellent

articles contributed by members make it the success

it is. One of our members, who has a very busy

schedule, finds time to write some of those excellent

articles. Ash Seidl-Staley, thanks for all your contributions

to Slipstream. Keep up the good work!

Gimme a Minute: April Board Meeting

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary April 6, 2016

President Jim Falgout

began promptly at 7:00 pm.

Social Co-Chair Phyllis Gallegos

mentioned a date for Founders’

Day. Unfortunately, it conflicted

with our Club Race in November,

so another date will be worked out.

May at Mayo’s is all set with Blue

Mesa catering. She needs more RS-

VPs, though.

Volunteer Chair Jimmy Gallegos

sent out a form for event chairs to

complete and return to him. He will

pair up job needs with willing volunteers.

Editor Jim Hirsch continues to

create 40-page issues. Current printing

of 1825 covers our needs. In the

past five months we have had over

100 new members join the club, so

he will continue publishing articles

recapping what our events are about.

We have 31 advertisers. The Photos

of the Month feature is going well

and is always looking for pictures for

articles and on the cover. He will be

gone in May, so Carey Spreen will

finish the June issue.

Co-Editor Carey Spreen reminded

everyone that the Phase II of registration

for the Porsche Parade in

Jay Peak, Vermont, opened Monday,

April 4.

Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh

has had requests for a Maverick

window sticker. He found a source

for $1.29 each (500 minimum). The

board approved a motion to purchase

them. He will have them available

for sale, but cannot do so on

the Goodie Store website directly.

He will investigate the best method

for selling and report later. He will

also purchase several moderately

priced items from our Goodie Store

to make them available for sale.

Safety Chair Joe McGlohen

has been training Bob Kramer

and Wayne Elliot as assistants. His

current focus is on our Drivers’

Education events. He will continue

looking for an additional younger

candidate.

6 May

Advertising Chair Cindy Bliss is

still getting a feel for her new position

and will work with Jim Hirsch.

Sunday Drive Chair Tom Martin

reported his first event of the year

was to the Mitas Hill Vineyard,

which was attended by 111 cars and

183 people, the largest ever. His new

sound system worked perfectly. Because

the group was so large, he had

six drive leaders to split the group

up into manageable chunks. The

next drives will be to Ben Wheeler,

TX, and the Revolver Brewing in

Granbury.

Bob Kramer looks forward to getting

more involved in the club while

not stepping on too many toes. He

noticed some issues at the last DE

and will help to make improvements.

PR Chair Brenda Dranow continues

to work on issues to help with

Slipstream, despite being away.

DE Chair Chris Tabor reported

the April 2-3 DE had over 100 attendees.

The DEs this year to date

have been more successful than last

year’s to this point of the year, partly

due to better date selections. He

will be looking to increase the price

of the September event by $25 to

adjust for increasing costs. He has

been reaching out to new members

by sending event discount coupons.

Bill Orr is assisting Tom Martin

with Sunday Drives. He shared a

new phone app called “Porsche GTS

Routes” that records routes and

makes them available to publish, a

possible great tool for the events.

Concours Chair Andy Kay is set

for May at Mayo’s on April 30. He

has his awards and other items prepared,

but needs several volunteers

to help with parking and vote tallying.

He is also working to get volunteer

judges for the June 5 Autos in

the Park concours. If he cannot get

enough judges, it will be a people’s

choice event.

Calendar Boy Brendan Eagan has

the Google calendar up to date and

is looking for a replacement helper,

as his last one moved away.

Rally Chair Don Sebert has his

first event on April 16, a Puzzle Rally

from Plano to the San Martiño Winery

in Rockwall. He is taking RSVPs

to rally@mavpca.org.

Secretary Wendy Shoffit reported

for several absentee chairs. Membership

Chair John Hamilton stated

we had a net gain of 12 from last

month, bringing us to a total of 2529

primary and associate members.

Autocross Chair Mark Schnoerr

said that, after three events so far,

19 Mavericks have participated in

the series, but no one has swept the

new classes. The AX school was held

March 19 in Mineral Wells, followed

the next day by a mirrorcross. The

third event was at Lone Star Park

where he was course designer and

event master – a great event with

some close battles in the Porsche

classes. The next event is May 29,

the day after the first Time Trial this

year, both in Mineral Wells. Time

Trial Chair Travis Howard is ready

for that event and will be running

TT Course #1. More information

later. Historian Charlie Davis will

begin working on dates for the next

Photo School and contest. He will

report on those later, as details are

decided. Lastly, as Club Race registrar,

Wendy reported that the COTA

event is shaping up. Attendance is

currently down from past years, but

will work to increase those numbers.

Jim Falgout announced that Ash

Seidl-Staley is the Maverick of the

Month because of his continuing

tech article writing for Slipstream,

despite a very busy school and life

schedule. If you have suggestions

on someone you would like to see

receive Mav of the Month, contact

Jim.

Meeting was adjourned at 7:45

pm, as our fearless accountant leader

had to return to work because of

tax season. Possibly the shortest

meeting ever!

Destination Restoration: Jacking It Up

By Ash Seidl-Staley

Photo Courtesy of the Author

One of the most beautiful aspects of the

Porsche, as a car, is its low profile. Whether one drives

the classic 911, a nimble 914, a scathingly fast Carrera

GT, or one of the various front engine Porsches, the

truncated stance screams power and agility. It is undeniably

accurate to state that this look is gorgeous and

advantageous for high speed cornering, but having the

car so close to the ground can often make upkeep of

the vehicle difficult. Many maintenance procedures can

be accomplished without having to raise the vehicle up

into the air, but many more cannot. To avoid unnecessary

damage to our precious vehicles, it is important

to know where the car’s jack points are and how to

properly use them. For the purposes of instruction this

article will focus its attention on how to lift both front

and rear engine-mounted Porsches, specifically a 911

and a 944—though these procedures and jack points

can be carried over to newer models and body shapes.

Let’s begin with a nice diagram depicting a 911’s

jack points. As you can see, there are six main points

underneath the car that should

be used to jack up the vehicle.

Two of them sit directly behind

the front wheels of either side

of the vehicle and the four other

points lie directly in front of the

rear wheel wells. On most vehicles,

when rust is not an issue

or the structural integrity of the

rocker panels isn’t threatened,

this section of the floor pan has

little nodes that stick out signaling

the exact position a jack

should be placed. If the front of

the vehicle needs to be lifted the

best places to lift, include directly

in the center of the Crossbeam or

at the A-Arm mounting points.

Jack points are

marked with an X

Many home mechanics, myself included,

choose to lift the rear of

the car via the sump plate cover

on the bottom of the engine. I have read and seen multiple

discussions pertaining to this procedure and have

determined that using the engine for a jacking point

is really up to each individual owner. As long as care

is taken throughout the lifting procedure your car will

be free of damage. Remember, patience and common

sense are our friends.

No matter what position you wish to raise your vehicle

by, it is important to always use an item, usually

a small chunk of wood, as a buffer in between the jack

plate and the metal of the vehicle. This not only provides

an added measure of stability but helps protect

your vehicle’s metal if a slide or jack slip were to occur.

A procedure that is doubly important is always, and I

repeat always, utilize jack stands in conjunction with

the floor jack itself. Too much can go wrong when using

the floor jack alone; jack stands provide additional

support and save lives. Thankfully Porsche has courteously

provided many points where jack stands can be

inserted. These include: the rear torsion bar covers,

the front torsion bar mounting points, the front cross

beam connecting the A-arms, and the rear torsion tube

itself.

Once

the car

has been

lifted

up and

placed

on jack

stands,

remove

the floor

jack and

step

Notice that the jack point for a 944 is in the

middle. Jack stands can be inserted at the four

corners of the floor pan.

away from the vehicle. Allow the weight of the car to

settle on the stands for a few minutes. Then administer

a test on the vehicle by pushing and shoving the car.

There is no need to get angry like the Hulk, but it is

important that you do this to make sure that the car

will not slip or fall off of the stands while you are under

the vehicle. It is better to have the car fall off the

stands when you push on it then it would be to have the

car shift while torqueing a bolt or breaking free one of

those trailing arms. For added security, as my family has

experienced the detrimental effects of a jack failure

first hand, I always place two extra tires underneath the

floor pan. This only eases my mind, as well as my wife’s,

but is not strictly necessary.

To lower the car after your work is done, replace

the floor jack to the point where you chose to lift the

car. Lift up, carefully remove jack stands and any other

form of safety measure present, then slowly lower the

vehicle down to its iconic stance.

That’s about it my friends! Remember, the Internet

is full of beneficial “how to” videos, discussion boards,

and technical articles that adequately describe how to

jack up each specific Porsche model. It wouldn’t hurt

to invest in a Haynes manual either . . . Wrench on,

Mavs!

Mitas Hill Vineyard Sunday Drive Recap

ByTom Martin, Sunday Drive Chair

Photos by George Luxbacher

Would you have any

Grey Poupon? It was the first

day of Spring, just hours after the

vernal equinox. The neo-Druids

were spent from their time at

Stonehenge, the Australian Grand

Prix was already in the books, and

somewhere in North Texas, a bevy

of the Porsche faithful gathered in

a parking lot in Plano.

Actually, it was more than a bevy

of Porsches. More than a cadre, a

covey, a crowd, or a flock, too. In

fact, it was more of a horde. Maybe

even a legion. It was the biggest

dang turnout of Porsches and people

that the Club has ever seen for

a Maverick Tour.

Yes, 111 Porsches and 183 people

turned up for the first Sunday

Drive of the 2016 season.

The drive was a relatively short

62.1-mile jaunt, designed as a sort

of primer for new members to the

12 May

A record number of Maverick members

participated in the first drive of the year

Leaving the lot to start the drive

All told, six drive groups were required

to accommodate all of the participants

Maverick fold. And there were a lot

of new members present: almost

50% according to a quick show of

hands.

The first section of the drive

led drivers out of the confines of

the Metroplex; the second took

us through towns

like Farmersville

where the roads

opened up somewhat;

and once the

drive groups passed

through Blue

Ridge, the third leg

was devoted to doing

what Porsches

do best . . . killing

bugs. Quickly.

Because of the

total distance of

the drive, and the

relatively short elapsed time needed,

it was decided to forego the

mid-drive restroom break that most

Sunday Drives include. It seems

that many members appreciated

the streamlining. Plus, the service

station in Princeton at the halfway

point would not have been able to

handle the 100+ Porsche swarm

clogging their parking lot and utilizing

the sole rest room.

Upon arrival at the Vineyard,

we were greeted by our gracious

host Rob King, who had a social

area dedicated for our group, in

addition to the normal bar and

restaurant areas. Truth be told, the

establishment was overwhelmed

by the influx of customers, even

though it was alerted well in

advance.

The Porsche Club is welcome

back next year; we will be working

closely with

management

to establish a

prix fixe, limited

menu to

alleviate this

issue.

While the

wait time was

a little longer

than normal,

my wife and

I enjoyed Our club Porsche cars

some great filled the Mitas lot

gourmet cuisine.

She had a delightful chicken

Caesar salad, and I had sea scallops

paired with a mozzarella caprese.

Not only was the food superbly

prepared, the presentation was also

excellent. And of course, there was

the wine, which was also very good.

Many thanks to our Drive Leaders:

Voy “Mitch” Mitchell, John

Harvey, Jon Glover, Young Slack,

and Bill Orr, for helping to make

this Drive a resounding success.

Also, a big shout-out to my sweep

Kevin Creed for doing an excellent

job of cat wrangling.

Hope to see you at the next Sunday

Drive!

Driver Education 2016: April DE at MotorSport Ranch

By Chris Tabor, DE Chair, and Carey Spreen

Photos by Gary Glover*

Maverick Region’s second Driver Education

(DE) event of 2016, held at MotorSport Ranch

on April 2 and 3, was a very successful one for us. The

Green (beginner) and Blue (novice) groups were full,

and the Yellow (intermediate/experienced) and White

(experienced) groups were mostly full. Several drivers

advanced to higher run groups, and two advanced students

became new driving coaches – quite a feat!

*Photo by Andrew Barber

Your Porsche and the track were made for each other

The next DE on the calendar is the Advanced Solo-

Only event at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, the

weekend of May 6-8, held in conjunction with a PCA

Club Race, and put on by Lone Star and Hill Country

Regions along with your Maverick Region.

After that is our summer hiatus, with the next event

coming up on September 24-25. DE-ers are already

looking forward to September to kick off the Fall portion

of this popular series.

Driving your Porsche (or other car) on a real racetrack

is educational and exhilarating, and of course just

Classroom instruction helps everyone learn the track

plain fun. As a beginner, you always have an instructor

in the car with you to help you learn about your car, the

course, the rules, and racetrack etiquette. Safety is our

highest priority, but fun and camaraderie rank right up

there too!

Your Porsche, right off the showroom floor, is a competent

racetrack vehicle – all you need is some track

time, along with the basic skills and proper attitude,

which is where the instructor comes into play. He or

she will help you understand that the correct application

of steering and brakes, as well as the throttle, are

what make you both fast and safe on a racetrack. If you

are worried about wear and tear on your car, tires and

brake pads are the typically the only items that wear out

more quickly than normal street driving.

Opportunities to learn from many Maverick members

Chris Tabor welcomes the DE participants

Because we feel so strongly about new Porsche owners

and drivers understanding the capabilities of their

cars, Maverick Region is now mailing invitations to all

new members to try it out, including a $50 discount.

Additionally, if you refer a friend who has never driven

their car (Porsche or not) on a track, you will receive a

$50 referral bonus when they register.

Come on out to a DE – you’ll be glad you did!

With three events into the ten-event season,

we have 19 Maverick PCA members in the series, and

no one is sweeping any of the new 2016 PCA classes.

Equipe Rapide’s annual Autocross School was held

March 19 at Mineral Wells, where entrants were able to

work with experienced coaches on a figure-8 skid pad,

a low- and high-speed slalom, a fast switchback section,

and a full autocross course. Breakthrough car control

skills were experienced by all participants and seat time

was a priority.

The next day followed

with the second

Autocross series event,

a dual course Mirror-

Cross on March 20.

GT3 versus 650S: You’re the Winner

By Bob Kramer

Photos Courtesy of the Author

About a year ago, I received

an invite to the McLaren

Sports Series Reveal Event, hosted

by Park Place McLaren and the

McLaren factory. A new car, the

570S, was to debut as the marque’s

entry level model. Factory reps

were there to present the cars and

answer questions along with dealer

personnel. The pre-production

model on display was stunning,

a true beauty, but as it was not a

complete car, it could not be fully

experienced. Heck, we couldn’t

even sit in it.

Luckily, they said I was welcome

to try out its “big brother,” the 650S,

instead. The nicest of individuals,

I’ll call him Chris, took me out on

a test drive that highlighted some

of the car’s more performanceoriented

attributes. I think at one

point, one of us might have even

exceeded the speed limit. To say

the least, the car is a hoot on the

street.

I happened to mention how I

had become a track junkie with my

Porsches over the last couple years,

and that it sure would be nice to

get a ride in one of the McLarens

on the track. As luck would have

it, he said the dealership was hosting

a private customer track day at

MotorSport Ranch in Cresson the

following week. Further, he might

be able to get me a drive in one

then . . . and would I be available

on Wednesday? Hmmmm . . . OK!

16 May

The McLaren 570S

The following Wednesday

turned out to be one of those

bluebird days you dream about,

especially while living in Texas. The

sun was out, and yet the temperature

and humidity were both pleasant.

What a perfect day to test the

merits of the 650S, and see how it

would stack up against my current

track car, a 2015 Porsche 991 GT3.

Admittedly, this would be a tall order

for the McLaren as I happen to

love the way my “3” works on the

track.

The author’s Porsche GT3

I got two sessions driving the

650S that day. As it turned out, that

was just enough to plant the seed. I

bought one six months later.

So, which one do I like better

-- GT3 or 650S? I love them both.

How are they different? My observations

of the differences include

the following:

Power: 80% of the 650S’s rather

substantial torque is available at

2800rpm. Four hundred lb-ft at

2800 rpm pulling to 500, vs the

GT3’s maximum of 324 lb-ft developed

at around 6200rpm. The only

thing I’ve experienced that’s similar

was my CBR900RR race bike.

You definitely feel the difference.

Sound: The way the GT3 bangs

and howls downshifting through

the gears coming hard into a corner

(like Rattlesnake at MSR),

screaming through the GMG, is

intoxicating. The 650S sounds best

under acceleration with the back

window down. And it’s good, but

never quite gets to the GT3’s 9000

rpm note.

Ride: I’m sure a good chunk of

the extra $$$ charged for a 650S is

because of the suspension. As far

as I’m concerned, it’s worth it. The

ride is unbelievable. It’s better on

the road than my ‘16 Macan T with

AS, to say nothing of the GT3. Even

in track mode, on the track, the

ride is surprisingly smooth and flat,

even under braking and cornering.

That’s some kinda technology.

Handling: I’m a bit more comfortable

near my limits in the GT3.

Some of that may be due to the fact

I’ve tracked it a lot more. Some of

it is likely due to the difference in

tires (Pirelli P Zero Corsa A vs Michelin

Pilot Sport Cup 2). Some of

it is because the GT3 is more adjustable.

Expendables cost: The McLaren

goes through tires at least twice as

fast as the GT3 does. It also appears

to have a serious appetite for rear

brake rotors because of its brake

steer / open diff technology. By the

way, a set is about $8000. Don’t ask

me how I know.

Driver data: The GT3 displays

readable numeric data (oil pressure,

oil temp, water temp, tire

pressure). The 650S displays tire

pressures and tire temperatures,

but there’s no way I can read them

while the car is moving. Further,

engine data is shown in the form of

four-stage bar graphs. While they’ve

never moved off “normal” when in

use, I wonder what the actual range

has been . . . and just how bad abnormal

would be . . . and how close

I’ve been to it.

View: Visibility out of the 650S is

excellent. While the GT3 rear view

mirror shows me a great view of the

wing, I can actually see other cars

out the back of the McLaren. The

view out the front is much better

also. The lower deck height along


with the raised fenders makes it much easier to place

the 650S exactly where you want it. That’s quite handy

on the track.

Braking: Both have exceptional

brakes. I can, however,

brake slightly later, even

though I’m going slightly

faster, in the Mclaren. Did I

happen to mention the cost

of the McLaren’s rotors?

Fun factor: I can’t imagine

two better cars to have at the same time, given their

price points. One could argue an RS and a 675LT

would be a better pair but others might argue the $$$

difference would be better spent on a Billet Silver Metallic

Viper ACR. Just thinking out loud . . .

Member Travel Notes: Finding a Road Less Traveled

By Melissa Nichols

Photos Courtesy of the Author

My husband has been an avid motorcyclist

for 20+ years and his primary requirement in trying to

find the perfect ride was to figure out the most crooked

path to the destination. Since we purchased “Greta,”

our 2008 Boxster, a little over two years ago, the same

rule has applied. Because we live east of the Dallas Metroplex,

most of our travels have been north of Hwy

380 and east of I-35.

One of our rides had the

target of destination of Bug

Tussle, Texas. We’d read that

it was quite the photo stop, so

we decided to see for ourselves.

Google Maps is our friend when

finding locations. I simply type

in the location, avoiding highways,

toll roads, etc., to keep us

away from the traffic, and then

I alter the course and move the

lines around until the route is

as curvy as possible. These maps

are before and after playing

Bug Tussle original route

Bug Tussle altered route

with the route to Bug Tussle.

Along the way we stop in quaint

little downtown

eateries, always

in search of the

perfect piece of

pie. One such café

that deserves a

recommendation

is Sabine’s on the

Square in Trenton.

The owner is a lively

rock-n-roll chick

who serves large helpings of pretty decent food. Don’t

forget to try her pecan

pie if you stop

in. As for Bug Tussle,

well, it is certainly

worth the trip for the

photo op, but don’t

blink or you will miss

the one and only

dilapidated building

at the intersection of

two cotton fields.

A Bug Tussle photo op

Durant original route

On our most recent excursion, we drove to Durant,

Oklahoma for a concert and a little bit of gaming action.

We decided on a straight shot to get to the destination

but took the leisurely route home. In doing so,

we found a beautiful bridge that spans the Red River

between Oklahoma and Texas, and the countryside

is gorgeous with endless rolling hills. We stopped for

a few pictures and then drove through Bonham State

park as well. Our advice is to always make the detour

for state parks. The usual entry fee is $4.00 per person

but in this case, they will let you drive the scenic loop

for 15 minutes as a courtesy. It’s a quaint little park that

we will consider going back to for a picnic lunch. Here

are the before and after maps of the Durant trip as well

as pictures of the bridge and Bonham State Park:

As a general

rule of thumb, our

day trips are usually

3-5 hours in

length which includes

a stop for

lunch. We usually

have a target destination

in mind

and work around

how to get to and

from that point.

We’ve found that

Durant altered route

Bridge at the Oklahoma-Texas border

the people in local eateries often have good advice on

other things to see in the area, and they’re usually

friendly. Most of all though, our goal is just to enjoy the

experience of the drive.

City, Texas and have been Maverick PCA Members since

Revolver Brewing: May Saturday Drive Preview

By Tom Martin, Sunday Drive Chair

B - DOUBLE-E - DOUBLE-R - UN –

Beer Run !

Do you remember the malt shops of your youth?

Yeah…… neither do I. Well, our May Saturday Drive

leads us Mavericks to a malt and hop shop, courtesy of

Revolver Brewing in Granbury.

Come escape the confines of the urban sprawl and

explore with us some of the less traveled backroads of

the western sector of the Metroplex. The route is 101

miles in length, so we should arrive at our destination

just in time for a refreshing afternoon libation.

Every Saturday, Revolver Brewing opens its property

to the general public to partake of their most excellent

wares, and also those of a food truck or two. Admission

is $10.00, and

includes a logo

pint glass, beer

tasting, live music,

and a tour

given by one

of their genius

brewers.

Some picnic tables and chairs are available, but it

is recommended that Mavericks bring their own lawn

chairs.

The Drive will be held on Saturday, May 14th. Starting

point is the parking lot of WalMart Supercenter,

located at 6360 Lake Worth Boulevard in Lake Worth.

Starting time is 10:00 am, so plan to get there a little

early to sign up and attend the Drivers’ Briefing.

Of course, attendees are not required to participate

in any of the destination’s offerings, so if one desires,

one may head straight home after the Drive on their

own route.

If you plan on attending the Drive, it is imperative

that you RSVP before the Drive. Just shoot an e-mail

to tours@mavpca.org with a simple “I will be attending

(by myself, with my wife, with a friend, etc.)” and you’re

in. When you RSVP, it gives us an accurate count to

supply to the proprietor of the destination, plus three

days before the Drive, you will receive an e-mail with

the following attachments: a Garmin .gdb file of the

route, a route overview, and turn-by-turn instructions.

Hope to see you (and your Porsche of course) at the

Beer Run!

Well, another fun social night out was experienced

with the Maverick Region Porsche Club and this time it

was at “Love & War in Texas,” located in Grapevine.

This monthly social for March was well attended by

Porsche Club members to catch up with each other

and to just have a good time in spite of the rain. There

was an array of great looking Porsches to admire in the

parking lot, which kept you from questioning if you

ended up at the right place. We can expect to always

have a good time at these socials, thank you Stephanie

Ho (PCA Maverick Region Monthly Social Chair) for

coordinating another great event.

Around the Bend...

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor

The Joy of Porsche. I have not been able to

find a tome with that title, although there is a legion of

books under the heading of “The Joy of ...”.

No, I’m not about to begin writing the Porschespecific

entry into that genre. Instead, I’m going to

encourage our Maverick Region members to write your

personal chapter of The Joy of Porsche and be willing to

share your experiences with our readers.

For example, I happened

to be out at the

April 12 Track Night

in America and had

a chance to see firsthand

how one of our

members experienced

The Joy of Porsche. Mike

Mike Barnett and his 2007

Porsche Carrera at MSR

had not been out

to the track with his

Porsche 911 for almost

three years. After four

sessions that evening, the Joy for Mike in getting back

on the track was readily apparent.

And, as many of you know, your Porsche also experiences

its own version of Joy after a bit of vigorous exercise.

All of its many computer-adaptive systems come to

full attention when you ask your Porsche to stretch its

legs as it was originally engineered to do. Its Joy is that

all systems stay at close to full attention for some time

after you complete your track time. The response as

you drive it on the street for the next few days brings an

even greater amount of Joy to you!

This issue is filled with many other examples

of The Joy of Porsche. For example, Melissa Nichols

shares her family’s driving strategies when

looking for some Joyful time on the road.

Bob Kramer shares the Joy of comparing the driving

experience of wonderful cars that many of us only get

to dream of driving. Ongoing contributor Ash Seidl-

Staley provides Joyful strategies for suspending your

Porsche in the air safely.

And, new for this issue, member David Cavazos

shares his Joy of sketching Porsche-based cartoons.

David is titling his series as “Pcar -Tunes”. I hope this

becomes a regular feature of Slipstream.

Whatever your Joy of Porsche includes, please share

those experiences with our readers by sending your

stories to me at editor@mavpca.org.

Finally, in our continuing Slipstream initiative - Mav

Photos of the Month - the focus for this month was

engines. Thanks to our members for submitting these

great photos shown on page 31.

For the June issue, our focus is interesting

backgrounds with your Porsche in the

foreground, so send your photo submissions to

editor@mavpca.org or post them on our

Maverick Region Porsche Club of America

Facebook group page by May 10.
