It’s Time Again For Maverick Region's Annual
Father's Day Picnic and Concours D'Elegance!
Saturday, June 17th
The Casey Family’s home in Copper Canyon
(See map at left)
Lunch at high noon
Concours registration at 10:00 am
Concours judging at 1:00 pm
The Casey family is once again graciously opening their home for our annual gathering honoring Dad. The
Club will provide the barbecue fare (hot dogs and sausage dogs) as well as soft drinks. The only ‘price’
of admission is that we ask you to bring your favorite side dish or dessert to share. You may BYOB,
but no glass containers please, as we will be in the pool area. Also, bring your swimsuit, towel, and
sunscreen, and you might want to guarantee yourself seating with a lawn chair, too!
In keeping with tradition, there will be a low-key wash-and-shine Concours for those who want to
show off their favorite cars. Charlie Davis has volunteered to coordinate the Concours, and if you
know Charlie, you never know what kind of twist he'll put on it. Porsches are, of course, our first
preference, but if you have a car made by one of those OTHER companies that you just have to
show off, bring it! All awards will be "People's Choice," unless Charlie comes up with something
different, that is . Judging will last about 15 minutes. EVERYBODY gets to judge--even the kids!
Please RSVP by Friday, June 15th to:
Mimi or Carey Spreen (NOT the Caseys)

April turned out to be busier than I had expected.
The two Time Trials and an Autocross at Mineral
Wells didn’t seem like a lot, but a few of us decided to
take some Fridays and paint all the boxes for our
courses for the Time Trials this year. So Bill Dugan,
Charlie Davis, Noby Takahashi, Keith Bird, Wendy,
Jasmine and I, painted the cone boxes (and numbered
them so we know which courses the box applies to).
Special thanks to Graham Lane for making the templates for the painting
that sped up the process and produced outstanding results!
In other AX/TT news, I finally got the online registration working!
Go to http://www.pca.org/mav and follow the Driving Events and then
Autocross links. It should be the first link at the top. This should greatly
reduce our paperwork and eliminate at least one source of errors (my typing
in the names and car info!).
Kay Leibel, our wonderful Goodie Store person has come across an
interesting new accessory that your car will love – a Maverick Region
license place frame! I think it is a great idea, and can’t wait for us to get
them in. She has placed an order for them and they should be in stock by
the June Drivers-Ed at MSR, so come to a Happy Hour or DE with an
extra $10 (or order using the forms found online or in Slipstream) and get
one while they last!
Now let’s talk about the LSR40th and Zone Shootout. I know you
won’t have much time after reading this to apply, but we want a really good
showing of Mavericks down there at College Station in all the events. We
need our best Concours and Autocross competitors to go down and do
battle with other regions. This is a rare opportunity for us to get regional
competition, and will be a great warmup for Parade!
With the event coming up in College Station and Parade following
shortly thereafter, and knowing full well that I want to start doing more
Drivers-Ed events at different tracks, it is obvious that I need a trailer. My
old trailer had been damaged in the accident coming back from last year’s
Parade, and we had strongly considered selling it ever since. We finally
realized the smart thing to do would be to spend a bit repairing it and find
a cheaper place to store it (I no longer need the 10x30 enclosed space I was
renting as I have reduced my car count over the last few years). So I found
a place that would let me park the trailer, fairly close to my house, that
costs about one quarter what I was paying before. And to top it off, we
bought a new Expedition as a tow vehicle. Now I think we are ready for
some more serious towing!
Coming up in June we have the One Lap of DFW on the 2nd (come
out and watch or work, even if you don’t drive), Standridge Autocross on
the 3rd (a great place to start autocrossing!), The Zone Shootout at College
Station on the 9th and 10th, Teri Davis’ famous Rally Workshop (worth
the effort whether or not you are going to Parade) on the 16th, and the
Father’s Day picnic at the Casey’s on the 17th. Then we have our DE at
MSR on the 23rd and 24th before we leave for Parade! Something for
everyone... come on out, and join the fun!
by Pam Abdalla, Slipstream Editor
I’m very excited about the autocross at
Standridge June 3rd. It will be the first one
I’ve done in a year! Not participating since
then has not been by choice, I just have not
had the opportunity. I hope that there’s a big
turnout, as I think it’s so much more fun
when there’s lots of people around. I’ll fill
you in on how it went in July’s issue, but
hopefully you’ll be there to catch all the
On another note, being a first-time proud mom of a justturned
one-year-old, I can’t help mentioning my daughter’s
birthday, so please bear with me. Mikayla Sofia celebrated her
first birthday May 13th and what a day it was! So many people
advised me not to throw a big party because “one-yearolds
don’t know what’s going on anyway.”, but there was too
much going on that day not to celebrate. Not only was it her
birthday, but we also had her baptized that day, plus it also
happened to be Mother’s Day! So, we threw a big bash, and
she really did have a blast! I’m glad I did it. When she’s 20
and sees the pictures of herself with cake all over her happy,
smiling face, I hope she’ll thank me for making a fuss.
One final note: To all those who are heading to the
Milwaukee Parade this June 30th, have a safe trip, a great time
and lots of good luck. Oh, and be sure to bring me back lots
of pictures and articles, too!

The May meeting of the Maverick Board
was held on May 9 at the “fresh baked”
chocolate chip cookie house of Wendy and
James brought the meeting to order at
7:09 and immediately lost control.
First up was Wendy Shoffit’s report on
the Mineral Wells Time Trial and Autocross
weekend. It was a very successful and she wanted to remind
everyone that pre-registration helps in the overall success of
the event. Also, online registration is now available at the
Maverick web site, and for everyone who participated, your
competition stats are online.
Maverick Region has entered nominations for 2001
Parade for Family of the Year (The Shoffits), Enthusiast of the
Year (Ed Mayo), Region of the Year, Public Service/Charity
and Newsletter. We hope Ed gets to bring the enthusiasts trophy
back to our Region after Lanean has to relinquish it from
her win last year.
Nelson Hodges’ update on One Lap of DFW sounds like
a cast of thousands with participation by 20 to 25 car clubs.
He is looking for volunteers and participants. He wants to
make sure that the hosting club, Maverick Region PCA, at
least makes a strong showing. More details are available on
the web site.
The June Driver’s Education (DE) is all set and Nelson is
coordinating workers for this event as well. We even have the
Porsche Store as a sponsor.
The Zone Shoot-out in College Station will be on June
9th. Register to participate or just come down and watch the

Cars Fail, People Don’t - Time Trial #1
by Wendy Shoffit
I had anxiously awaited Time Trial (TT) #1 of the season. After
having had a few events this year in the unfamiliar Standridge Stadium,
I was looking forward to the ease of coming “home” to Mineral Wells.
No, I didn’t grow up there, but that is where my first autocross was! It
James and I decided to bring Jasmine on this particular trip. We
drove out Friday to help Bill Dugan, our Time Trial Chairman, paint
cone boxes to aid in setting up the TT courses. Since we had extra help
from Charlie Davis, it was no big deal… only a few hours later we were
done and busy trying to get the paint off of our hands and shoes and
retrieve the keys from the ignition in Bill’s Tahoe (ask him about the
newly-invented “On-Star wire!”). Since Jasmine had been good for us,
we decided to treat her to a local carnival that happened to be in the
mall parking lot that weekend. She had a ball, but James and I were a
little nervous, desperately seeking their safety record. I’m kidding
Anyway, Saturday morning came too early, but the conditions were
familiar. Thunderstorms loomed in the distance. Weather forecasters
were having a hard time predicting where and when the storms would
hit. History has told us that if the weather is going to be bad in
Dallas/Fort Worth, it will be worse in Mineral Wells, so we were anxious
to get going. Our only hang-up was fog, so thick that you couldn’t see
more than about 20 feet in front of you. That made setting up the
course a bit challenging. Thank goodness we had the painted boxes to
make it quicker.
Everything else seemed to go pretty much as planned. Over 40
people came out, despite the gloomy forecast. Once the course was
done, the cars were tech’ed, the Developing Driver (DD) students
assigned instructors, and the drivers’ meeting behind us, we were off.
Things were finally going great. James had a fantastic set of runs in our
’78 SC and I was getting to where I was remembering what to do and
starting to hook up again. Then it happened…
While on the back straight, going from second into third, I shifted,
but the car didn’t. I tried again… no go. How about fourth? Nope.
Second? Again, no. Uh oh… I pulled off to the corner station, as far off
line as I could and waited. After I had stopped, I was able to finally get
it in first and so after the grid was held, I carefully limped it back to pits.
James and Ed Mayo took a look and saw that something made the
Mark Gohlke getting everyone started.

transmission go – AGAIN! Last year’s trip to Hallett came rushing back
to me where the same thing had happened. I know it’s not my fault, but
oh man, why me???
It was obvious that the car was going nowhere, but we still had the
afternoon set coming up.A brave Fran Ussery let me drive her 914. It was
a completely different animal, but I had a great time in it. Fortunately I
didn’t break it! James was lucky, too… he scored a ride in Ed and Jan
Mayo’s modified 914 “Cockroach.” It wasn’t hard to tell when he was
driving the open-top car – he’s quite a bit taller than the Mayos.
After our fun afternoon runs were done, we had to figure out how
to get the car home. We had decided not to bring our trailer, thinking it
would be too much trouble. Little did we know! Fran offered her
trailer, but our car wouldn’t fit. Bill offered his, but it was the same
problem. Ed offered his enclosed trailer and it fit! Since Cockroach isn’t
street legal, his car had to go on Bill’s trailer. Bill’s car then had to go on
Fran’s trailer and Fran’s car (the one closest to being street legal) had to
be driven. Nancy Dugan offered to drive it. I guess they figured one ride
from me was enough for one day! ;)
So, again thanks so very much to Fran, Bill, Nancy, Jan, and Ed for
all your help. It is amazing to me how this group of Maverick Porsche
Club members works! It’s unfathomable that so many people would go
so far out of their way to help us out. Maybe we should change our
slogan to, “Cars may fail…but these people don’t.” Nah…it’s not nearly
Time Trial Results - Mineral Wells

Autocross School #1
by Kelly Binek
I attended the Autocross school in Mineral Wells in April, and
thought I would share my experience with you. This was my third
autocross, and my husband’s second in the Maverick Region (yes,
I am one up on him.) We were quite excited. The first two we
attended were at Standridge, we really enjoyed them, but imagine
our surprise, and delight, when we arrived in Mineral Wells and
reviewed the itinerary of the exercises and course map. There were
several more exercises than there were at Standridge, and the size
of the actual course , in my opinion, was a little scary. Then when
I found out that the obtainable speeds were close to 70 mph I wasn’t
too sure about participating, but with the prodding of my husband
I hung in there.
I found all four exercises to be quite helpful. After my laps on
the large oval skidpad, and small skidpad exercises I have a better
understanding of lift throttle oversteer. I almost spun out a couple
of times, but I think I recovered nicely, of course my husband
pulled me aside and gave me pointers! The braking exercise really
caught my attention. I intend to start concentrating on threshold
braking. My instructor tried very hard to make me understand the
threshold idea by explaining it to me, however, until I did a full
360 degree maneuver (that was awesome) I didn’t quite understand.
I understand now that in order to get a good time, you
have to accelerate to the highest speed possible and use the
threshold breaking to slow you down fast enough to make the
corner and not lock up your wheels. Just like in every autocross
school I have been to I wish I could have had a little more time
to runs laps because just when I figured out what, when, where,
why and how, it was time to move on.
The chicane and slalom are always my favorite. After a few
runs you get confident, and then BAM, you lose it!
Overconfidence can help and hinder. The exercise taught me that.
I learned you basically have to push the car to ride on the EDGE.
When my instructor told me I was smoother than my husband, I
got over confident and let that lift throttle oversteer just take over.
After a wonderful lunch with good company, on we went to
the timed runs. This was a little different from Standridge
because we all had an assignment. Assignments ranged from
working corners, working the grid, or helping with the booth and
recording times for runs on the board.
The Ed and Jan “Mayo Heel and Toe and Clinic” was overbooked!
The slalom exercise offered regular, increasing, and decreasing slaloms.
Drivers lined up for the Time Trial exercises.

Of course my first run was cautious. (remember the 70 mph
speed issue weighed heavily on my mind) After my parade lap to
familiarize myself with the track, and the knowledge I gained
from running the exercises earlier in the day, 70 mph didn’t seem
so bad anymore. The time invested by the instructors in their
teachings prepared me for the actual course. They covered everything!
When I got on the course I felt very comfortable because
through the morning exercises I did, I had actually been practicing
every maneuver on the course. Without those exercises, I don’t
think I could have done as well.
I also learned that sometimes you can save time by rubbing,
or flat out running over a cone. I plowed over a cone, it was right
under the porsche crest, by doing that I sacrificed one second due
to the penalty, but probably saved 2 seconds. That’s about how
much time I would have spend trying to correct the mistake I
made when I headed into the slalom. By the time I reached my
5th lap, I was discussing more horsepower with my husband.
That stretch from the chicane to the pivot cone, as well as the
stretch out of the box to the timing line could have been faster.
I had so much fun, and since that day my husband and I
have discussed getting a chip, a 5 point harness, better wheels and
tires, basically anything that makes the car perform better. For my
husband it’s a dream come true, not only does he have someone
to talk to about driving, but now he doesn’t have to justify spending
the money, if he says more horse power, I say get it.
Thanks to Wendy and James, and all the instructors that
invested their time. A special thanks to Kevin Chen, our instructor,
who was brave enough to get back in the car with me after our
We look forward to the next opportunity to attend an event.
The only thing that will make it better will be when I get my own
car to drive!!! Believe me, I am working on it.
Autocross School #1
by Richard Klein
O.K., so I think I’m ready. I’ve always wanted to feel what it was like
to really drive the car. The dumbest way find out is to drive around town
and over time, slowly and quietly push my skill limits (without the
benefit of instruction) to see what it is like. There are three possible
outcomes of this behavior. At best I will figure it out via trial and error
by myself without mishap. Right, it’s possible but the chances are slim
to none and it takes forever. Maybe just do the same as above with a
healthy dose of fear-induced conservatism mixed in to guarantee no
mishaps. Fine, just what I have been doing for years with this nagging
feeling there is more. Or push harder, no, not a subject that is open for
So what is a boy turning 47 years old on the Saturday of a Maverick
Driving School event to do? Make the commitment? Drive to Mineral
Wells? First thing is to separate fact from fear.
1. I’ll damage the car. Clearly an unfounded fear, in fact the worst
case possible is the car spins or hits a cone. The events are designed for
safety by experienced people with the same concerns. There will be no
other cars close enough to run into, no matter how hard I could try. By
the way, please review the opening paragraph.
2. I’ll make a fool of myself. Always a clear and present danger. The
fact is that I can only be a fool by trying to be something that I am not.
The simple solution is to keep in mind that everyone started some time,
declare myself a newbie and bask in the gentle acceptance afforded by
the rank. Works for now but I may have to revisit this one next year.
3. I don’t know what I am doing. Unquestionably a fact and a fact
that will remain in place until I know what I am doing. In the meantime
I just have to remember to breathe.
4. There will be people there who have been doing this for years,
competition driving skills are now second nature, they know the
history, the terminology, the secrets of the game, they have cars
modifications, tire choices and an entire list of issues unknown to me
honed by years of experience. Thank God for small favors.
5. My instructor will intimidate me. The fact is my instructor, Steve
Kent, is dying for me to succeed. He explains the whys of balance and
weight transfer, demonstrates each exercise first so I can see what it
looks like before I attempt it, patiently answers all questions and gives
me a running commentary of tips while I am driving. The latter being
most helpful. It is amazing how easy it looks when he drives, which is
the mark of a skilled craftsman, how clear the theory behind it all is after
our conversation and how quickly it disappears when I drive. Through
out the weekend his actions are supportive, nurturing and forgiving. So
what I have to say about it is, thanks, thanks to you, Steve, for giving up
your weekend and the skybox at the NASCAR event to be here. Thanks
to all of the instructors for generously passing along your experience
and the skills necessary to participate in and enjoy this sport. Same to
all the people working the event. That said I wonder if there is an
unspoken competition among the instructors for how well their
students do. Any sport that is scored down to one thousandth of a second
has got to attract a competitive lot.
6. I don’t know anyone. True, but that one won’t take long, it’s a
pretty friendly group.
So I gave myself permission to participate. Here is what the
weekend was like. First thing was finding a helmet. Oh no, the helmet.
When I asked Tom at Mayo’s about a helmet he answered, “Got a five
dollar head, get a five dollar helmet. Ok fine, the list of what not to get
was defining what was possible. The Maverick site made the specs clear,
a web search turned up the major models but the fit is the key to no
headaches. Tom suggested 2 local dealers, I opted for a good fit with a
head sock in place on the assumption that a clean sock would be very
welcome in the summer months, not that I planned on sweating. Easy
enough for the first hurdle with a simple moral to the story…ask the
Saturday morning and the Mineral Wells event site appeared
before me. A quick walk around got me a nametag, a bunch of handshakes
and #6 was handled. Clean out the car, shoe polish the car
number on the rear windows, drivers’ meeting, break into run groups
and on to the exercises.
First up for our group, threshold breaking. The hardest exercise for
me for the weekend. Properly done it was counter to my entire street
driving experience; stay on the throttle much longer than I thought
possible, stay on some more, then max braking, and no locking please.
Happy Birthday Richard Klein!

Entering the chicane right allowing a full power exit.
Brake to soon and give up time, to late and forget the corner. It is the
ultimate in making a commitment while analyzing time and distance
on the fly. The braking ability of the car was amazing. My only
complaint was we didn’t have a full day to practice.
Next was the slalom, a lesson in rhythm and setting up the balance
and placement of the car. Boy did it feel great when it was right. It was
that feeling I was looking for.
The skid pads followed. I thought it would be learning to catch the
car before spinning out. To my surprise it was about throttle steering,
my now favorite activity. That was the small pad. The big pad added
speed and finding the line. Just when I learned an exercise (small pad)
I had to apply it (big pad). Here was the time to get over the fear of
spinning. I spun, then I spun again. It is no longer a concern.
The afternoon was an autocross. It was one-lap, small course,
Steve’s coaching, and second gear in a 911. This was fun. The hard part
for me was seeing the course in the cones. The solution was to look out
further, to see the pattern of the gates. That puts everything near the car
into peripheral vision.
Sunday morning started the same, only the exercise courses were
larger, we were going to shift to third meaning higher speeds, and each
course applied yesterday’s skills. Just when I was starting to get
comfortable, the ante goes up. The afternoon brought a time trial,

There was a clear logic in the way the weekend was planned. Each
exercise emphasized a skill that logically layered together to form a
foundation. As the foundation solidifies, confidence increases. As each
skill is absorbed the experience of driving slows and relaxes even as the
speeds get higher. What would have been frightening earlier seems quite
natural. It was very effective for me.
The weekend transformed my perception of my car and the club.
I grew up racing sailboats with my brother, competing in national level
regattas around the country. Boat handling was all about proper set up,
trim, balance, timing and feel. When all was right the boat felt alive.
Once the boat felt good, we had to get our heads out of the cockpit, to
see the fleet, wind direction & strength and plan a constantly changing
strategy. There was no one right way. Steering changes with the helm
were seen as putting on the brakes so we steered the boat with the sails
and crew weight to preserve speed. Bodies in motion act the same way,
the edge of adhesion feels fluid. The main difference was we always got
wet. Focused perception, anticipation, consistency, and a light, gentle
touch with a little luck would carry the day. What is it about these
hairless, pink apes always wanting to travel through the landscape faster
than they can run?
Happy Hour at Sevy’s

Rob Turner (lt) and Rich Krug (rt) with Lanean Hughes.
Porsche Happy Hour-A Good Place To Meet New Friends As
Well As Old!
It is truly a small world. At the last Happy Hour at Sevy's on
Preston, I not only met some new friends but also Rob Turner, an
old friend from about 10 years ago. Rob and I did some business
together, I think it was either CD ROM or Karaoke. I know there
is a lot of difference in the two but I did both.
It was very interesting meeting Rob again as well as all my
new friends at PCA. As a matter of fact Rob and I are going to try
to connect for another business opportunity again. Come join the
Happy Hour, you might meet an old friend, for sure some new ones.
- Rich Krug
Having previously owned two Porsches, I never joined the
PCA, due to what reason, I cannot fathom. Well, being a bit
older and finally driving another Porsche (this time a 1976 930),
I felt that it was time to join up and be counted among the supporters
of everything Porsche. The ink was barely dried on my
new membership cards when I announced to my wife that I
would go check out the Happy Hour at Sevy’s Grill. Glad I went!
The folks that I meet were very friendly and since we are all PCA
members, we all have something in common. Note: when someone
asks what color your Porsche is, be sure that you do not say
“White, Red or Silver”. The correct answer in this case would be
“Grand Prix White, Guards Red or Artic Silver”. This is a test and
you will be graded, bonus points if you know the color code
The great thing about this chapter of the PCA is that you can
be involved as much or as little as you wish. So to all you new
members out there, do not be intimidated, all are welcome equally
and accepted as you are, dents and paint chips on your Porsche
included. So thanks to Tinker, Lanean, George, Linda and
Wendy, you all made me feel right at home and not a stranger in
a strange land. Best of all I got to visit with an old business
acquaintance, in this case Rich Krug (I was sorry to hear that
business is slow and also sorry to see you saddled with that new
2001 TT. It pains me to see you reduced to such levels!!! (Tongue
firmly in cheek here).
My advise is to get involved and have fun. Nothing is better
then hanging out with folks that share a similar passion (okay,

The ducks and swans even have their own islands!
The Clark Gardens in Mineral Wells hosted an event on April
28th at their lovely “mini arboretum” for the Hope Shelter.
Several Maverick members attended, and those who couldn’t
make it missed an absolutely breathtaking walk through nature!
From black swans to golden ducks it was a great experience.
While enjoying all the beauty you also knew you were supporting
the Hope commitment. I hope to someday soon host an event for
the Mavericks at this great facility!

Corners of the Mind: Practice 1, On Track
By Paul Young, San Diego Region (from The Windblown Witness)
The key to success in any skill is practice, practice, practice.
Obviously there is much to learn by reading books on the subject,
observing someone else, or listening to a discussion. But the
actual experience of doing is the best way to gain experience and
learn. This applies to sports, art, vocation, hobby, and, of course,
driving. Generally those that have more experience are more
At an autocross or time trial, we get certain amount of time
or number of laps. It would be to our advantage therefore, to
attend as many of these events as feasible. An autocross is an
event where cars are allowed on a track at intervals designed to
allow an adequate margin of safety between cars. If a car spins
out, for instance, there must be plenty of time for the next car to
avoid the incident (with the help of a yellow flag from the corner
Time trials are driving events with continuous lap practice,
and are often held on large (2.5 miles), fast race tracks. The start
and finish lines are the same, so you drive successively around the
course for a specified time (15 to 30 minutes per session). Since
the entire run group (up to 25 cars) is out on the course at the
same time, passing is necessary. This is handled with the emphasis
on safety. You have the added responsibilities of watching your
mirrors, giving passing signals, being passed, passing other cars,
watching the corner workers more carefully (who now have 4 or
5 different flags instead of just yellow), while running continually
for up to 30 minutes at higher than autocross speeds. All this can
become second nature with a good deal of practice (track time),
but to the newcomer it can be a drain on mental resources,
allowing little time to think about learning driving skills!
Nonetheless, a time trial affords many miles of track experience
and several hours of on the track practice during the weekend.
The focus and concentration of the continuous lap format allow
you to get into a groove and really work on your driving.
I didn't get seriously involved in time trials until I had the
basics of driving solidly understood (after a year of autocrossing).
I recommend that you first have car control well in hand before
starting to time trial. There are many new things to keep account
of while driving at these events. If you are trying to keep track of
all these things while struggling with how your Porsche handles...
well, you get the picture. Later, you can go beyond our time trial
series into club racing, vintage racing, or other types of professional
motorsports. But it's interesting to see that even the most
experienced drivers still find a challenge and opportunity to learn
at an autocross, where the emphasis is on figuring out the course
smoothly but quickly. The point is this: in order to maximize
track time, participate in as many events as your time and
I don't know of any secrets to getting more actual on-track
time. Our rules are different now, but it used to be you could
register for two groups, or register two cars at an event. I did just
that back in the Fall '86 series and won two trophies in two
different classes. But it was too much work, especially at Holtville!
Bob Lemke says that sometimes I'm getting more actual track
time than him because my lap times are slower. Uh huh, I guess
that makes sense - slower means more time. Hey, by extending
that logic, you can get a lot of track time just by walking the
course. Now there's an idea.
So if we've exhausted every idea for getting more track time,
what else is there? If quantity of track time is optimized, let's
work on increasing the quality of the track time that we do have.
Exactly what do we mean by quality track time? For our purposes,
we want to learn as much as we can in any given amount of time
we do have. If we drive a practice lap and learn nothing from it,
that lap was not practice; it was useless. Perhaps you weren't
aware of what you learned, so don't just throw out every lap that
has no obvious lesson to it. The more education you can glean
from any given lap, the more you can find to improve from, the
better that lap was. Hey, it's called a practice lap, so consciously
learn everything you can from it!
What are the methods of getting the most from a practice
lap, and what tools can we use to learn the most we can? Well, we
talked about attitude, and that has a lot to do with opening our
minds to new ideas. Another key to absorbing the most experience
is concentration or focus. Any distraction will inhibit our
ability to receive and process input and ideas. One factor that can
be a major internal distraction is tension - physical, mental or
emotional. By relaxing ourselves, we can actually free our minds
up to better focus on our task of learning the course and driving
technique. What I am talking about is relaxation as a method of
reducing or removing tension.
Do you ever get nervous while waiting in the pregrid line at
a time trial or autocross, especially for timed runs? Your heart
beats faster, your breathing is heavy with anticipation, your
knuckles turn white as you grip the wheel tighter, you look over
at your date and... oops, wrong scene! But the symptoms are
similar. I can tell you that with experience (driving experience,
that is), the nervousness does become less pronounced, though it
never completely goes away. However I have found a few things
that help me, and I do these as a matter of habit, even if I don't
feel very nervous at all.
While waiting in pre-grid, I scan my entire body starting at
my toes and working up gradually through my head and arms.
This mental scan looks for any muscle or nerve tension along the
way and I imagine the stress being neutralized. Without moving
my limbs, I will tense and then relax every muscle, making sure
they are unstressed. Afterwards, my muscles and nerves are left
rested and ready to perform their tasks with a minimum of any
pre-stressed condition that might fatigue them or distract the
mind - consciously or subconsciously.
Another technique is to inhale slowly and deeply for five
seconds, hold this full breath for five seconds, then exhale
smoothly and completely for five seconds. Then I breathe deeply
and normally for a few seconds and repeat this process two or
three times. This deep breathing exercise slows my heart a bit,
regulates my breathing, relaxes a bunch of muscles and calms my
nerves. Perhaps most importantly, it gets oxygen flowing to my
brain (no I did not learn this from Bill Clinton).
Finally, I remind myself to be intense (focused), but not
tense... intense, not tense... intense, not tense. This entire ritual -
scan, breath, focus - takes just a few minutes. When it's done I feel
refreshed, unstressed, relaxed, and yet alert and ready to concentrate
on driving. My muscles are ready to respond without being
pre-stressed. My hands control the wheel with a steady, moderate
grip. My mind is looking straight ahead, on the track, my driving,
the tasks at hand, and learning.
Seem a bit silly? Not if you are serious about driving faster.
Hell, I'll use any legal advantage I can get! Perhaps these exercises
and imagery are not quite right for you, or maybe you have other
techniques. But give it a try, or at least look for ways of relaxing
your body and focusing your mind during those times that you
might get a bit nervous.
Out on the course, there are things to work on to improve
the quality of your practice. We want to learn the course as fast as
possible while maintaining smoothness. Except for how your car
behaves at the limits, everything you need to learn about the
course can be picked up at greatly reduced speeds (even while
walking the course). This means that if you are driving smoothly,
you are learning the course. If you are at or near the limits, you
are learning car control (not the course). This does not mean that
you should always drive well below the limits, nor always probing
the limits; just know when and where to use each technique.
It may seem obvious, but it is important to know the feel of
your Porsche. This is an understanding of how your car behaves
in a variety of situations. It is not necessary to have a physics
degree specializing in automobile chassis dynamics to understand
your car any more than you need to be a psychologist to interact
with people. We learn through experience. You will get to know
your Porsche better and better. In order to maximize this learning
process, it helps to first minimize distractions, as we have been
discussing. As we gain experience, we need to increase the link
between driver and car.
Fine performance automobiles are touted as being an
extension of the driver, but we humanoids need to adapt our
senses to our Porsches too. We can improve our driving skills if
we can more thoroughly understand how our car behaves under
assorted conditions. Nobody is the perfect driver - none of us can
extract the absolute most out of any given car. So the driver is the
limiting factor in practical terms. But in theory, the car has a
limit; the maximum that that car can theoretically achieve with a
perfect driver. If we accommodate to the car, we can come closer
to that hypothetical boundary - driving the car as well as it can be
driven. We also learn which sensory inputs we need to be aware
of and which are distractions to be ignored, thus freeing our
minds to focus on what is truly important. With practice, we can
learn which situations will likely produce certain responses
from our Porsches, and tune our sensitivity accordingly. For
example, understeer (front wheels plowing) can best be sensed
through our eyes and hands (steering wheel), whereas oversteer
(rear wheels loose) is better felt with the seat of your pants - the
perception of lateral motion. If we are in a tight corner and we
want to use a bit of controlled oversteer to our advantage to get
through the turn quickly, we can anticipate the sensation of
impending oversteer, and handle the car appropriately for the
These may sound like advanced concepts, but many drivers
do these things subconsciously. It will take some time, but we can
get into the mindset of learning quickly. By understanding the
process of connecting with your Porsche, we can expeditiously
conform to other cars and learn their characteristics quickly also.
This adaptability will allow us to quickly adjust to new cars,
tracks and situations. A great car, like a Porsche, will have solid,
predictable, repeatable performance, but it cannot adapt to the
driver. It is our job to learn how a car behaves, just as we learn
how to interact with a variety of people.
If you know your car perfectly (none of us do), and you
know the course completely (again, nobody does), you still can
work on how your Porsche handles on that particular course,
given this day's conditions (track surface, traffic, weather, etc.).
The point is that there always will be something to work on and
improve, so select a study topic and tackle it! As your car control
and course familiarization skills advance, the improvements will
come more slowly. But keep working at it despite the seemingly
slow progress you may encounter at times.
The key to performance driving practice is quantity and
quality of track time. To improve the quality we can heighten our
concentration by minimizing tension and stress. We can prepare
for our lap or run group by relaxing our body and focusing
our thoughts. On the track, we should attempt to become an
extension of the car, tuning our senses to the car and the
particular situation. Each car has a theoretical best lap, and we
should strive to adapt ourselves to the car with the goal of getting
closer to that ideal.
To Members of Maverick Region PCA,
In Memory of Candy Cowling
Thank you so very much for the cards, phone calls, and other kind expressions of sympathy
at the time of the loss of my beloved Candy. A special thanks to those who attended
her memorial service and for the beautiful flowers sent by the Maverick Region.
Candy was an associate member of PCA-MR and together we attended the last 12
consecutive Parades. Her work and travel schedule did not permit regular attendance at MR
events, but we were at this past year's Safari Round Up, an event which she enjoyed very much.
Candy did NOT like to be photographed, so if any of you have snapshots of her that
you would be willing to share, please send them to me at the following address. I will scan
them and return to you immediately. I will use them for a memory book I am putting together
for her mother, who is in ill health and lives in Midland, TX. Please send to: Milton Barley,
P.O. Box 896, Aledo, TX, 76008, (817) 613-9375.
Again, thank you for your kindness at a difficult time.
We will miss her very much.

Driving School Thanks!
by Kevin Hardison
The Maverick Region Driving Schools have been an important part
of my life for several years now. When I first started driving with the
Mavericks, the driving schools weren’t being offered. By the time they
started up again, I was definitely a “tweener”. Not good enough to instruct,
but too good to take up a valuable novice student slot. Most of my beginning
driving instruction was supplied by some very patient drivers and
competitors who showed a lot of class. I needed all the help I could get!
This year we offered an Intro to Autocross School, a Ladies Autocross
School, and our now traditional 2-Day Mineral Wells School. Along with
enthusiastic students and eager instructors, we also had a core of workers
and “tweeners” who kept the events moving. They helped out by showing
up early, setting up the courses and driving exercises, and working corners.
This year I tried to thank everyone by offering worker and instructor fun
runs at the end of each day. Those runs provided much entertainment for
everyone who stayed to watch!
I need to thank Wendy & James Shoffit for twisting my arm to help
with the schools again this year. They kept all of their promises and went
far beyond the call of duty. Jan Mayo deserves all of the credit for chairing
the Ladies School. Both Jan & Ed Mayo helped put on the “Mayo Clinic”
in Mineral Wells. Graham Lane and Keith Olcha shared in the Chief
Instructor duties. Charlie Davis provided advice and course setup help.
Teri Davis organized lunches for everyone. Bill Dugan, Mitch Williams,
Warren Bushey, Noby Takahashi, Cody Sears, Shawn Collenberg and
many others. Proof that the schools are working have been the comments
received and the extra participation we’ve had this year. Thanks everyone!
