It’s Time Again For Maverick Region's Annual

Father's Day Picnic and Concours D'Elegance!

WHEN:

WHERE:

TIME:

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)

at 972-420-9953 or the.spreens@gateway.net

Prez Says:

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

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!

Pam’s Page

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

action yourself.

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!

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Maverick Region Secretary

The May meeting of the Maverick Board

was held on May 9 at the “fresh baked”

chocolate chip cookie house of Wendy and

James Shoffit.

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

action.

The Father’s Day Picnic will be at the Casey’s. Look for

the ad on page 2.

Lanean Hughes gave an update on Hope Shelter and was

proud to announce that MR PCA contributions throughout

2000 helped to improve the matching contributions by the

government.

The meeting closed at 9:08.

Maverick Region PCA board

meetings are held once a month.

The board meetings are open to all

PCA members and your suggestions

and opinions are welcome . . .

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

felt good.

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

(sort of)!

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

as catchy!

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

Nancy Dugan

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

spin.

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

conversation.

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

question.

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.

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,

higher speed, larger course with a practice lap and three hot laps. Much

like tennis, were proper body positioning made it easy to hit the ball

Glenn Holman squeaking by the gates.

well, positioning and weight transfer of the car exiting this curve sets up

the next one. Driving the car 3 gates ahead became mandatory. I was

surprised at what a totally different animal the time trial was from the

autocross.

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

by Rich Krug and Rob Turner

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

(I did)!!

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,

except hanging out a little and driving a lot in a DE, TT, AX, Rally

or tour).

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

successful.

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

worker).

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

finances allow.

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

20


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

desired result.

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!
