Autocross 1 was at the new Burleson

High School lot on Sunday,

February 28. This lot is much like

Pennington Field, where we used

to run events, and also has a terrific

concrete surface. For the first

event at this site, a shorter course

was used but as a result, everyone

got 8 timed runs. See the results accompanying

this article.

There were 13 Porsche entries

out of the 81 total who ran for

times, which is 16% of the entries.

The new Parade “small region”

classifications worked well and put

the Porsches into just three classes.

It was highly competitive in classes

P2 and P4. Fred Stubbs brought

out his Boxster Spyder, and with

support from wife Jean, took his assault

on Class P3 also.

Carey Spreen was first in class

P4 and first quick Porsche. Carey

(911SC), Mark Schnoerr (914 2.0)

14 April

Fred and Jean Stubbs

Carey Spreen had the first quick

Porsche time with co-driver Sue Crimm

and new driver Matt Bugener (Boxster

GTS), qualified for cash awards

(unfortunately Matt did not stay for

awards). The Porsche Ladies swept

the ladies


PAX payouts


cash going

to Sigrid


(914 2.0),

Julia Underwood

(911S), Marissa


The Schnoerr’s 914

(911S), and Sue Crimm (911SC).

Julia Underwood with

Ed Mayo’s 1972 911S

Chris Alkier and Greg Dranow

brought their beautiful late-model

911s out to keep the Caymans honest

in class P2. Matthew Cords and

Brian Ogle have also competed

with each other in this 2016 class.

The next event, which will already

have taken place by the time

you read this (March 19 and 20),

was a double event weekend at

Mineral Wells: an autocross school

on Saturday followed by Autocross

2 on Sunday, a “mirrorcross” with a

full-on Christmas Tree start, where

your best times on each side of the

“mirror” are added together -- lots

of fun. Richard Diller is working on

getting the Zamboni-style sweeper

back in action to make course set

up go quicker at Mineral Wells.

Maybe we can get him to bring out

one of his 911s again. After that,

back to Lone Star Park on Sunday,

April 3.

Come on out -- we have a lot of

fun. There are quite a few interesting

cars and people autocrossing in

North Texas.
