Hill Country Tour

April 6th - 8th

Once again, it is time to plan ahead and join the MR PCA Tourmiester for a frolicking weekend on the great back

roads of the Texas Hill Country. Prep yourself and your Porsche for some runs, rest, roadwork, and relaxation.

Last year's Hill Country Tour was well attended and well received by the participants. This year's tour is expected

to be even more popular, so get your reservations in early. We hope to see all of the usual 50 - 60 or so suspects

and some new faces as well. Once again, space will be limited so register as early as you can!

DETAILS: We will begin from the Metroplex on Friday at 8:00 a.m. and head to the Hodges’ family’s weekend home in

Comfort, Texas. Along the way, we will be entertained by bluebonnets, mexican food, and the hill country hospitality. This

tour will (as usual for this tourmiester) have some surprises, along with time to unwind and commiserate. We will have a

little Texas history along with this tour, and we might even have a quiz!

The cost of the 2001 April Hill Country Tour will be $30.00. $5.00 of the registration fee will go to

the Hope Shelter battered women's and children's center, Maverick Region's

charity benefactor organization.

To register, or for more information, contact:

Nelson Hodges at (preferred),

or at (817) 633-8161 evenings and weekends.

Prez Says:

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

It seems like most of my articles are about the

driving events, but until someone steps up to the plate

and organizes a Concours program, the driving events

and socials will dominate. We have had some really

good events already this year, with many more coming

up quickly. Of course our Happy Hours are one of my

personal favorites now, and I try to go to every one. It

is a great way to hang out, meet new people, and

unwind with a (rather large) friendly crowd!

A new program we are starting is an official Corner Worker pool for

our Drivers Education events as well as Club Races. Corner Workers are

vital to any road course driving event and the events simply cannot happen

without them. Autocrosses and Time Trials use the drivers as workers,

but there is not as much training involved for most non-track corner

work. A small example of this is that a typical Autocross corner only has

one flag, where a fully-staffed road course corner could have up to 10!

Corner workers are the lifeblood of the event – they are the sole

means of communication to the drivers on the course. They alert the

driver of any dangerous situations through the flags they wave and how

they wave them. So the work is important work. But the best thing (to me)

about working a corner is the sense of involvement you get. You can see

the cars and learn things about how to drive better, but you also get to be

a very important part of the action. You get to hear exactly what is going

on out there and assist with the control of the event.

In the past we have been able to rely on SCCA for paid professional

corner workers to staff our club races and Drivers Education events. But

as more and more clubs are putting on races, their schedules get tighter

and tighter. So we really need a group of volunteers and good ideas on

how to get volunteers.

Joe McGlohen is spearheading this effort for Maverick Region. Read

his article about it later in this issue, and if you have any ideas on how to

make this program successful, or want to volunteer to work a corner

yourself, please contact him. There is a similar effort being led by Jim

Coshow at a PCA National level.

If you are interested in competitive or track driving, there are several

events coming up soon. If you missed the Autocross schools, don’t worry,

we have a Developing Driver class that will get you up to speed in no time.

Make sure the registrar ( knows you want to be in

DD. We have two time trials and a Mineral Wells autocross (plenty of

room) all coming up in April. There are also going to be two Drivers Ed

events coming up fast. Cimarron Region is hosting the Mayfast Driver’s

Education at Hallett on May 5th and 6th, and Hill Country Region is

hosting a Driver’s Education at Motorsport Ranch on May 19th and 20th.

For those of you that like an ever-changing array of twists, turns,

hills, and valleys, there is the Hill Country Tour April 6th to 8th that has

been quite popular in years past. Or, if you prefer, you can do the

Dogwood Spring Fling hosted by Cimmaron Region, which unfortunately

falls on the same dates! Either way, come on out and join the fun!

Pam’s Page

by Pam Abdalla, Slipstream Editor

I have a bit of writer’s block this month.

In fact, Slipstream is completely done except

this one little article, which has been started,

then erased, then started and erased again.

I would love to write about the fabulous

time I had at the Ladies’ Autocross, but due to

unforeseen circumstances surrounding my

availability of an automobile, I was not able

to participate. I did have a rather nice chat

with little Jasmine Shoffit on the sidelines, though. I now

know more than I ever wanted to about that strange blue

cartoon character, “The Tick”.

One thing that I did do this past month was attend the ALMS

at TMS. The greatest part for me, though, was getting there.

George and I borrowed a Porsche 550 Spider replica from a friend

and drove it there. Despite the 50-degree temperature at 8:30 in

the morning and the folks on I635 staring at us like we were

idiots, we had a blast. Once parked at The Porsche Store’s corral

outside the speedway, the car was like a spectator-magnet.

Despite all the beautiful, expensive and exotic Porsches parked

around it, this $12,000 knock-off got most of the attention. I just

wish we could have said it was ours!

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Maverick Region Secretary

The March Maverick Region Board meeting

was held at the always-festive home of James and

Wendy Shoffit in Valley Ranch and was preceded

with a pizza dinner. The meeting opened at 7:01

with updates from each of the committee chairs.

Discussion opened with a proposal for the

club to purchase flag sets for corner worker stations

for use during club races. The discussion concluded

with a request for more research on the cost of making versus buying

the flags. Also discussed was a potential for MR to purchase a set of

scales for club racing.

Autocross (AX) #1 was a great success with 83 participants. The

Drivers Education (DE) event was also a great success with 87

participants. The Goodie Store also had good sales at the February

Swap meet despite the cold weather. The Ladies AX school on March

10 was fully subscribed.

The new member party had to be relocated because of a scheduling

snafu and was changed to the new Nuevo Leon at Montfort in

Dallas on March 17. May at Mayo’s dinner social is scheduled for the

12th of May.

Nelson Hodges reported on the status of the One Lap of DFW. It

is getting a lot of interest from the other car clubs and is expecting a

very good turnout. The plan is to get everyone together on June 2nd

and drive a lap around the DFW area. Contact Nelson if you would

like to volunteer and/or participate. Nelson also reported that the Hill

Country tour is set for April 6-8. There was a typo in the

March Slipstream indicating that the tour started at 8:00 PM when it

actually starts at 8:00 AM. Contact Nelson for more information.

A proposal was passed to dispose of an old laser printer in an

“environmentally sound” way, as well as to dispose of an old

computer from Joel Nannis.

The meeting closed at 8:48. The next board meeting will be on

April 4, at James and Wendy Shoffit's in Irving. As always, check the

MR-PCA web site for the most current information on all of the club's


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 . . .

. . . and there’s FREE Pizza!!!

Swap Meet At GTI

by Vaughan Garrett

"Porsche Parts, Porsche People" What do you get when you mix

people and parts together? A Swap Meet! About 100 swappers

showed up at Dan Butt's GTI in Euless for the Maverick Region's first

Porsche swap meet of the year. Despite a sharp wind, sunny skies prevailed

bringing Porsche fans out of winter hibernation. The swap

meet is always a friendly event and a time to meet new comers and

old timers. You can see the wheels turning in people's minds as to

how they're going to fix-up their cars for the coming season. Even

The Goodie Store had a nice set-up and made many sales.

Thanks to Dan Butts, Tinker Moncus, Lanean Hughes, and to all

who helped make this year's swap meet a successful event.

The Goodie Store table was kept busy.

The 928s were out in force and parked in a group in front of GTI’s shop.

One Lap of D/FW Charity Drive

June 2, 2001

Sponsored by the Maverick Region PCA






A day long tour around the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.

To benefit Familiar Footsteps (a home for mentally disabled adults)

and Hope Shelter (a center for physically and mentally abused women and children).

Saturday, June 2, 2001; 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Start - Downtown Fort Worth; Lunch - Texas Motor Speedway;

Finish -The Ballpark in Arlington.

All Metroplex Specialty Car Clubs.

This year we have a great opportunity to help two of the lesser known local charity organizations through participation in

the "Charity One Lap of D/FW." The two charities listed as benefactors of this event do not receive as much notoriety or help as

other household name groups. However, they are doing a great service for our community and deserve recognition and help.

The Charity One Lap of D/FW will bring together most of the specialty car clubs of North Texas to show, parade, visit with other

people who have a passion about their vehicle marque, and to generally have fun.

The format of the event is as follows. We will all rendezvous at the appointed time and location, caravan to each successive

location along the published route to parade for the waving crowds, and end in the center of the Metroplex where each

car club can conduct their own concours, show and shine, or other awards contest if they wish. This will also give the general

public a central location to come by and get close to some of the most beautiful, exciting and interesting cars in the area, and

talk with the owners. Included in the route plan is lunch and other activities at the Texas Motor Speedway. This event will be

covered by the media to help promote the cause and awareness.

Each car club is asked to help promote the event with private and corporate sponsors for tax deductible donations to the

event. All proceeds will benefit the charities. Awards will be given to the car clubs for largest total donations, and for greatest

donations per number of participants, so let's get out the MR PCA people!

Entry fees are $25.00 per car, and pre-registration is an absolute must. We are expecting a large turnout for this event, so

make sure to be a part of a fun event. Plan your June 2nd Saturday now to join us for food, fun and merriment for a great cause.

If you would like to help, or simply want more information about how to participate for the charities contact the event chairman,

Nelson Hodges at (972) 602-9280 (w), (817) 633-8161 (h), or via e-mail at

Help us make a difference while getting to know your North Texas car nut neighbors. We hope to make

this an annual event.

ALMS at Texas Motor Speedway

by Lanean Hughes

The American Le Mans Series race at Texas Motor Speedway

March 4th and 5th was exciting not only for the Porsche teams

participating (who took 3 out of the top 4 positions), but also for

the Porsche Club. The turnout of club members - and their cars

- was just terrific and what made it even better was to have

a Porsche corral right up at the entrance gate. The corral was

sponsored by The Porsche Store, and we certainly want to thank

them for their support.

Saturday was somewhat “wet” needless to say, so the tent was

a blessing for the 30+ people who attended. Not only did we get

to do an incredible parade lap, around the oval and the road

course, we also had Randy Pobst one of the Porsche GT3 drivers

come to our tent for an autograph session. He spent time visiting

with us and letting us know that they appreciated the local

Porsche club support.

Sunday was a different story. We had 63 Porsches in our corral

and loads of Porsche family from Oklahoma, Houston, Austin,

Wichita and DFW. Quite a showing of all “flavors of Porsche!”

I want to personally thank The Porsche Store for the loan of

a beautiful Racer Yellow Boxster that I drove for the weekend. I

hated to return it, but made sure the front license plate was intact

when it was returned.

Thanks to Wendy and Jasmine on Saturday for their help

and to Jan for helping me “police” the area and welcome our

guests on Sunday.

All in all it was a wonderful event. The racing was great, a

nd it gave many of us an opportunity to see the Road Course

where the Maverick Region will be hosting the October Club Race

and DE.

Thanks Mavericks and our extended family for supporting

our events. It makes the effort worthwhile.

(See page 20 for more on the ALMS race results).

Autocross #1 - Standridge Stadium

by Charlie Davis

The first autocross of the season is history and it was a great start.

Graham, James, Wendy, Bill, and Kevin received well deserved compliments

from those that attended. If I missed a major player in the above

short list, please accept my apologies and (belated) compliments. This

was the largest AX in recent memory and was essentially the same size as

the big Autobahn SpeedWeekend at TMS last year...there were 83

entrants (66% PCA members)!

We continue to modify the AX event, with good results. Although I

personally didn't hear any negative comments, apparently some entrants

questioned the wisdom of our "only the first 3 runs count" rule for parking

lot autocrosses (even though the entrants got a total of six runs at this

event). I believe that this change is fair and well thought out. I assume that

most of those negative comments were due to resistance to change. With

time, I'm sure that we will hear fewer gripes. In my opinion, this change

was long overdue: We had lost the vision of what a true AX is, where an

essential part of the game is quickly analyzing and adapting to the course.

With 10-12 strike attempts, most people can get on base.

One comment that I did hear was that the course was an obvious

914 course. When a 914 took TTOD, these sages were vindicated. But

look at the top 10 times: 914, 911, 911, 914, 914, Corvette, 986, Celica,

914, Neon. Anyone familiar with Ed Mayo's driving and his car,

"Cockroach" should not be too surprised that he was the "winner".

Besides, "Cockroach" is not really a 914 anymore (a 914 on a starvation

diet and a serious exercise regimen, perhaps). So it was a well balanced

course design for any car, driven well. Plus, the course designer drove a

911 to 3rd fastest time. So, if you want to see a REAL 914 AX course,

please ask a 914 driver to design it.

Note also that the total spread in this group was 3.6 seconds (and

that 1.5 seconds of that was between Ed and the second driver, George

Abdalla), so second place was up for grabs by the other 9 drivers....

I was pleased to see several ladies competing and doing well (there

were 10 entered). Jennifer Courtney was the fastest lady and she is a relative

newcomer to the sport. She was only 2.2 seconds behind her husband

Joe (who has much more experience). So, in case you wondered why

Jennifer was on the cover of the March Slipstream, it's because she is driving

very well! An up-and-coming star?

Did I tell you that George Abdalla continues to impress everyone.

He is a natural AX driver, very calm, smooth, and intuitive. For the afternoon

runs, George and Carlo Malana swapped cars and George demonstrated

how to drive a twin turbo on a tight AX course. Fun to watch.

Our relatively new timing system was working well too. James must

be given credit for pulling all this together. It was a lot of work and he has

done a great job of updating our equipment. We averaged about 85 timed

runs per hour during the event! And doing it safely. We heard several

compliments about how smoothly the event was run!

One of the best parts of a small parking lot AX, like this one at

Standridge, is that you can see what everyone is doing and learn from

watching. I love the events at the MineralRing, but it's so big that you

can't see 70% of the courses...not as good for spectating. So, If you can't

get up the courage to start competing, come out and watch. There were

Happy Hour at Nuevo Leon

by Cheri Keehn and Mark Gluck

As is always the case, February’s Happy Hour was a great success!

It was a very nerve wracking event for myself this time. Not

only was Ben going to be unavoidably absent at this Happy Hour,

but it was expected for me to “take the reins,” so to speak, and

stand in for Ben along with Dennis and Tinker. Fortunately

Dennis, Tink and Lanean were wonderful in helping me to welcome

the New Members. So many members are now becoming

regulars at the Happy Hours. It’s fantastic to see the number of

members coming to the events increasing each month.

I have made some wonderful friends since these Happy

Hours have started. I’ve been to a few events within the Maverick

Region, all of which have been fun and educational, but the focus

is other things during these events. I think the monthly Happy

Hours give me the chance to truly get to know the new members,

and become closer to the members I have already met. The

opportunity to sit down, have a drink, and have a meal with old

and new members make it easier to learn about something other

than just when the next DE will be, or what make or model of

Porsche someone just purchased.

Many thanks to Nuevo Leon! Once again they have managed

to make February’s Happy Hour one of our best. The service was

impeccable and the food (as usual) managed to bring to Dallas a

taste of “Old-world Spain” with a flair for the art of presentation.

The appetizers were fantastic. Louis and his staff bring out their

best for Maverick Region and

never once become flustered

with a request from our group,

no matter how unusual. We hope

to have many more nights with

Nuevo Leon in the future.

Cheri Keehn

We came, we saw... we came back for a repeat engagement!

Nuevo Leon was such a hit last fall that we decided to return for

our February Happy Hour. Our virtually private room came

complete with picture windows on two sides, displaying Porsches

of all types and vintage (supplied by us!). Any time the conversation

needed a starter we simply looked outside for lots of material

- or just found Tinker, who was buzzing around everywhere

with Dennis' camera. The food was great, of course, and the

Margaritas superb - right up until we closed the place!

Another feature of these evenings is that we often are able to

arrange for reserved parking, which takes the worry out of what

to do with your prized car when going out for dinner. A reason

for coming out that's worth considering on its own, let alone the

great people you get to meet.

Hope Happenings

by Lanean Hughes

DE Donations Well-Appreciated - The Hope Charity will receive the

$225 that was collected from the parade laps at the MotorSport Ranch

Driver’s Education event. Thanks to all of you who participated!

Girl Scout Cookies Were A Hit! - Diane Johnson and her girl scout

troop presented the Hope Shelter with 70 boxes of Girl Scout cookies on

Sunday, March 11th. It was a great day and we had lots of donations and

boxes of cookies to deliver. Neither rain nor more rain kept Wendy, five

Girl Scouts with two leaders, and me from driving to Mineral Wells!

Some of the staff members and clients were on hand for the presentation.

Your Donations Are Needed - Remember, the shelter is always in

need of adult and children clothing, as well as any household items you

might have. As you are doing the “spring cleaning”, or your last “fall

cleaning,” please remember the folks at Hope. If you have not made a trip

to the shelter, please try to work it into your schedule. They love to see

the Porsche Club and are so appreciative of all we do for them.

Keep Hoping!!!

My First Driver’s Education Event

by John Cochran

Getting ready for my first PCA driver’s education event at

MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, Texas was a learning experience. Having

the car “teched” meant a trip to Park Place to get a technician to check

off all the items that PCA wants reviewed. I could have had the tech done

at Mayo’s in Bedford, except I knew time would be a problem. Had I a

choice, I would have gone to Mayo’s where tech sessions often turn into

PCA social events.

John Cochran coming out of Big Bend.

Getting ready also means dealing with car numbers and signage. I

called John Hrad at The Porsche Store because he has the best looking

signs on the track, at least in my opinion. John pointed me to ProTape

Signs in Carrollton. At the autocross school, I had worked out a permanent

car number with Wendy Shoffit, 727, only to learn from Bill Dawson

that autocross and DE events use different numbers and Mark Hanna had

already claimed 727 for driving events. That’s my birth date and easy to

remember. My wife, Suzanne, claims I have a someheimer’s condition

known as CRS. Anyway, Bill and I were able to work out a cool number -

555 - which, with a little math, duly recognizes the ages that my wife and

I will hopefully achieve later this year.You will have to just guess which one

of us will turn sixty. My helmet, ordered through,

arrived and I was almost ready to get educated in Cresson.

Suzanne and I had gone to Motor Sports Ranch last year, spending

the night at The Lodge in Granbury overlooking beautiful Lake

Granbury. I had worked a corner to see if DE was really something that

I would want to do. It was and for the past year I have been looking forward

to my first drive on the track. I had told other new PCA members

about what I had seen. Fred and Alice Wynn thought it would be a fun

weekend. We agreed to share a suite at The Lodge. Another new member

Suzanne and I had met during a PCA Happy Hour at Nuevo Leon,

Linda Crawford, also wanted to get in the DE. Linda and her grandson,

Matthew, also stayed at The Lodge. On Friday night, we got together for

a toast and later feasted at the local Italian Restaurant located in

Granbury Square.

The weather on Friday afternoon was horrible. The drive to

Granbury was remarkable only for the rain, traffic and three hours spent

on the road. However, by 6:00 a.m. Saturday morning, it appeared that

the rain had stopped. I got up and found a car wash. Our Boxster (pet

named Elga) goes faster when she is clean, or so I imagine. At 7:15, we

left Granbury and drove north to Cresson, arriving at the track just in

time to register and attend the drivers’ meeting. Keith Olcha explained

the black, red, yellow, white and blue/orange flags used by corner workers

to communicate with the drivers. Keith also emphasized that passing

is not allowed except in the straight-away and only then when the slower

car gives a hand signal to pass.

The Green Group (those like me, Linda and Fred with no experience)

was then off to the classroom where Bryan Henderson would

spend the next hour and a half talking to us about driving on the MSR

track. There were roughly thirty students in the Green Group. Brian

must have used the phrase “counter intuitive” a least two-dozen times

describing how we ought to approach corners and use the track-in cone,

the apex cone and the track-out cone. That seemed easy enough sitting

in the classroom chair. Doing it later on the track proved to be another.

While we listened and tried to absorb Bryan’s teachings, the instructors

(Red Group) were driving the still-wet track. The seasoned White and

Yellow groups would follow the instructors. These groups get to drive

without instructors. Finally, the Blue Group ran. Although they had

already been through the initial Green Group education, they still needed

an instructor with them on the track until they could be approved to

drive without an instructor.

“Green Run Group to the Grid” a lady’s voice echoed from the loud

speakers.“Fifteen Minutes. Fifteen Minutes.” Fred in his Boxster S, Linda

in her 968 and Elga headed for the grid. We had been preassigned to different

run groups and were therefore parked in different sections under

the metal roof-covered grid area, all the cars facing one another sort of

like ribs on a spine. Bob Benson initially patrolled the spine area. Jan

Mayo and Michele deJong would take over on Sunday. The Blue Group

was preparing to come off the track. Where was my instructor? I began

to get a little itchy. Everyone else had an instructor in the car. I got out

and found taped to a pole a list matching instructors with drivers. Beside

my name was that of Dave Phillips. “Great,” I thought. “ I have been in

this club for more than two years and the one guy they assign as my

instructor is the one I have never met.”I walked to a pod of folks that had

gathered under the shed to watch a boiling black cloud that was fast

approaching. “Anyone here know Dave Phillips?” I pleaded. Someone

pointed him out. “That’s him in the glasses wearing the white shirt.” I

gave a sigh of relief. I went over and asked,“Are you Dave Phillips?”“Yes,”

he replied. I shook his hand and he asked, “Where’s your car?” I pointed

to 555 and he pulled a piece of paper out of his pocket with the car number

printed 444 on it. We laughed realizing that he would never have

found 555 until everyone else had been directed onto the track and we

would be the only two people left in the grid.

Bryan Henderson, followed by other cars in the red run group.

Dave got in the car and we began to talk. He wanted to know about

my prior driving experience. Rather, I should say, lack of experience. Two

autocrosses and an autocross school are not much education I would

learn. The storm continued to approach. As we talked, the sky darkened

even more. Keith Olcha announced that it would soon blow over, at least

according to the DFW weather tower. The wind had a mind of its own.

It began to howl. The rain grew harder, the drops seemingly driven by


monsoon force winds. Dave opined that we weren’t going anywhere for

a while so we got out and watched the storm for about an hour. We

would later learn that a tornado had touched down in Sanger, just a few

air miles north of Cresson.

Kevin Burke in his Targa

The front finally passed and the rain slackened. I heard Charlie

Davis say, “We got the Green run group. We are going to be going slow.

The instructors will drive the students’ car for the first three laps anyway.

Let’s go!” Everyone got back in the cars. I learned that a driver will not

get the signal to exit the grid until eye contact is made with the grid boss

and the driver signals he is ready with a “thumbs up.” We began rolling.

Dave immediately began instruction, saying even though we got the signal,

be careful because someone else might be pulling out too early. As

we turned onto the track, a corner worker signaled that it was safe to

proceed onto the track, but Dave cautioned that I should always look to

the left for merging traffic. He then set the theme for the day: “We are

going to work on being smooth. Don’t worry about your speed. Smooth

is what I want you to learn. Speed follows smooth.” For the first three

laps, Dave drove around the track, showing me the line where he wanted

me to be on the track at all times. This, I would soon learn, is also easier

said than done.

After a quick three laps, we were back in the grid area and it was my

turn behind the wheel. No helmets yet. Just driving about forty miles per

hour around the track, and looking at the corners for the first time. Dave

reminded me to watch for the corner worker stations, check gauges, look

for the next track-in cone, apex cone, track-out cone, the next corner station

and check mirrors for cars closing from behind. “Gosh,” I said to

myself, “there is a lot more going on here in my mind than I had originally

thought.” Dave quickly brought me back to reality, asking, “What

was going on at that last corner?” “Gee, I dunno,” was all I could say. “I

forgot to look at the corner station.” Dave laughed and said we had just

received the checkered flag and would make one more cool-down lap

and exit. Gosh that first session went quickly and I was already beginning

to question my driving abilities after only one lap.

Whew! I need more practice, I realized, as we drove into the grid

area and Dave jumped out to instruct the next class. I drove back to the

paddock where Linda, Fred and I talked about our first driving session.

We would have three more sessions on Saturday and four more on

Sunday, weather permitting. The next session, we would wear our helmets

for the first time.

Ninety minutes later, sitting in the grid, Dave had a hand-held radio

with earpieces and microphones. He told me to force the receiver up in

my helmet and over my ear. A small wire piece bent to the front of my

helmet and served as a microphone. Cool, I thought. We could talk and

actually hear one another. Soon it was “Thumbs up,” out of the grid and

back to the track for our second session. The first turn out of the grid is

Wagonwheel, an “off camber” turn to the left and followed by an up hill

to Richochet.“Off camber” was a new term for me. It means that instead

of the curve being banked such as an oval at a Speedway, just the opposite

is true. If one were to go too fast, instead of planting the car on the

bank, you would simply slide laterally down the track. We learned that is

not good. There are two off camber turns at MSR. Sideways departure

allows mud to build up against the side of the tires, create a curb and

perhaps cause the car to flip over. One of the first things we learned is if

we were forced to leave the track, we were to leave headed straight, knowing

full well that it would take a wrecker to pull the car from the muddy

bog and create a “black flag” (get off the track) for everyone. This is not

recommended by Dale Carnegie. If you do not believe me, just ask Brian

Scudder what he did on Sunday afternoon to “Win Friends and

Influence People.”

Another new experience was learning that applying power while

coming off a corner apex literally forces the car to the outside of the

track. I didn’t know this. So as I would approach a corner, Dave

would be whispering in a crescendo, “brakebrakeBrakeBRAKE” followed

by “smooth-n-easy, now turn in, look for your track out

cone, powerpowerPowerPOwerPOWER.” Sometimes I would be

enjoying the straight away way too much and I would hear,


One of the first things a student learns is that these instructors are

volunteers. Their families only loan them to PCA for a day or two. They

want them home safe and sound on Sunday evening. About the only

thing these guys know about students like me is that I do not know what

I am doing on a track. Too much testosterone is dangerous. White

knuckles come easy. I learned that Dave is an oral surgeon in Sherman.

One of the first things he told me is that a spinning steering wheel can

take a thumb off or at least crush it. Accordingly, the safest way to hold

the steering wheel is at 9:00 and 3:00 o’clock with thumbs pointed

straight up on the wheel. I didn’t know that Dave was watching me like

a hawk except about every five minutes, he would say, “thumbs up!” By

Sunday afternoon, I would shrink in the seat every time he would have

to remind me. At one point, he threatened that if I did not keep my

thumbs up, he was going to stitch them in the upright position to the

leather steering wheel. I also knew that he was observing me tense up. He

would say, “All right, deep breath. Breathe really deep.” It was amazing

how that would relax away the tension after listening to the rev limiter

tell me that Elga had reached 6800 rpm in third gear on the straightaway.

Mark Bryant in his red 996.

Earlier I wrote about how seemingly simple it ought to be to drive

from a track-in cone to corner apex cone to track-out cone. Dave would

say, “You missed that apex cone by three feet. That’s okay, we’ll get that

point next time around.”He would tell me that I did not know where the

right side of the car was in relation to the road. But then one lap later, I

would miss the cone again. Darn. Dave offered several solutions to get

me closer to the cones. First he offered to glue a piece of paper on the

track so maybe I would run over it. When that mental imagery didn’t

work, he told me if I got really close to the cone, I could see the naked

redhead painted on the cone. That didn’t work either. Not only would I

not get close enough to the cones, I would either turn in six inches too

early or two feet too late. I could not seem to get consistent even though

we were running the entire course in third gear. Dave said learning to

shift down to second for Rattle Snake and Horseshoe would come later.


Photographer Kevin Hardison, this time in front of the camera.

On Sunday morning, we were back at the track at 7:30 a.m.

Saturday night, many of us had gathered at another nice restaurant on

the Granbury Square for dinner and a bit of revelry. Golly, this is surely

an early rising group is all I could think as I drove away from The Lodge,

the sun not yet up over the horizon. Suzanne would sleep in this morn.

Before long, Keith would be again explaining the rules to drivers.“Don’t

stop after entering the grid area to let your instructor out of your car.

Let’s have fun today. Green Group, back to the class room!” And so the

day began. Bryan Henderson gave us additional information. Our

vision, he explained, should not be focused on the car ahead of us. We

should be looking down the track and using our peripheral vision.

Entering corners we should develop a pattern of brake-throttle-turn.

The goal is to be slow in and fast out. Mainly on Sunday, Bryan wanted

us to ask questions. We did for about an hour and a half. It was apparent

that Saturday’s session had embedded a bit of doubt into many of us.

Questions were many.

The first session on Sunday was uneventful. Dave just wanted me

to refamiliarize myself with the track, a “throw away session” as he

described it. We missed the second driving opportunity that morning.

As I pulled in the grid area, Jan Mayo came running and said there was

something wrong with my right front wheel. I pulled forward a bit and

backed a bit as several instructors gathered around listening to a horrible

screeching sound. John Hrad from The Porsche Store came by and

mentioned that their chief mechanic, John Gladwill, had arrived with

their race car, had all his tools and suggested I ask John to take a look at

Elga’s wheel problem. I walked back to the paddock to ask John for assistance.

He gladly put me on the back of his four-wheeler, drove up to the

grid and felt around under the front wheel. He had me drive Elga a few

feet (without noise) and then I drove her to his trailer. John completely

dismounted the right wheel assembly, brake pads, and everything else

down to the spindle. He reassembled the car and sent me packing while

I was trying (unsuccessfully) to pay for his services. The consensus is that

a rock must have somehow lodged between the rotor and the heat shield.

In any event, the car has not had any problem since. My sincere thanks

to John Gladwill and The Porsche Store.

Earlier Sunday morning, Dave had mentioned that if the weather

George Abdalla and Bob Everson drafting close behind another 911.

improved, we could run top down. After lunch on Sunday, the sun was

shining, the wind eased and I dropped Elga’s top and put on the Boxster

“Speedster Humps.” I like the way they look, although I don’t think they

have any useful purpose other than to pad the bottom line of PAG.

Driving top down on the track was a blast. I was glad I bought a helmet

with a face mask. The speed increased a bit on Sunday afternoon as I

became more accustomed to the track, the corner stations, and the line.

I inwardly smiled as I noticed the checkered flag on the next to last lap.

Finally, it’s the last run on Sunday and I am used to the procedures. Many

Green Group drivers have left early. The track is not nearly as crowded.

I have now become comfortable with Dave. He told me early on when I

was mentally kicking myself that I should not abuse myself. He promised

to give me plenty of criticism. Well, he didn’t really but I certainly

did enjoy my seat time with him as my instructor. On the last run, he

said of the corner at Little Bend,“that’s the best you have made that turn

all weekend.” I glowed inside knowing that I was learning. Hopefully, I’ll

be back for the next PCA driving event too and learn more about having

fun with Elga.

In reflection, I think about Bryan Henderson’s advice.“This event.”

he said,“is about having fun, learning to drive your car and doing it safely.”

I really did have a lot of fun and so did everyone else in the Green

Group with whom I spoke. We did it safely. The only time Elga came

close to getting a scratch was in the paddock area when someone inadvertently

opened a door and it came in contact with her handle.

Fortunately, there was no damage.

It would not be appropriate to write an article about this event

without mention of the many volunteers. They did not drive, but

worked the entire weekend so that others could enjoy the driving experience.

If you are one of those who may have been wondering if there is any

benefit to the track experience, I would answer yes. I am now driving

Elga more sensibly on the public roadways, knowing that I am not a

good driver and that those that have their motor vehicles in the lane next

to Elga don’t even know that they are not a good driver. Scary and ironic,

isn’t it. A little education is a good thing but ignorance is bliss.

McKenna Porsche 911 GT3 RS Team Sweeps ALMS

Season Opener at Texas Motor Speedway

Copy Provided by Porsche Motorsports

FORTH WORTH, Texas March 4, 2001: A brand new

Porsche 911 GT3 RS race car fielded by the McKenna Porsche

Alex Job Racing Team, of Tavares, Fla, and piloted by German

drivers Sascha Maassen and Lucas Luhr, dominated the GT class

by scoring a one-lap, pole-to-flag victory in today’s Leather

Center Grand Prix of Texas. For Porsche, it was the 19th win in 21

American Le Mans Series races over two years.

The second McKenna Porsche 911 GT3 RS, driven by Randy

Pobst, from Melbourne, Fla., and Christian Menzel, from

Germany, finished second, but spent the whole two hours and 45

minutes fighting off three BMW M3s and three other Porsches,

all on the same lap for most of the event. This gave Alex Job

Racing a one-two finish, its first ever in the two years of American

Le Mans Series competition. The Said/Stuck BMW was third.

Luhr, who had put the car on the pole yesterday, was gratified

that the rain stayed away from the Texas Motor Speedway and he

could run in sunny, dry conditions. After running the 24 Hours

of Daytona last month in the rain, and practice and qualifying

here in the rain, the race car performed perfectly in the improved

conditions, said Luhr, who scored his fifth ALMS career victory.

Maassen has tasted ALMS victory seven times, and narrowly

missed winning the driver’s title in 2000. The two drivers were

teammates last year with Dick Barbour Racing, but had never

shared the same car.

Perhaps the most frustrated driver in the GT class was Bob

Wollek, who, along with Johnny Mowlem, put the White

Lightning Petersen Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 RS in the top

three several times, but had to settle for a fourth place finish. No

less than three times during the event, Wollek was shunted by

other competitors, resulting in either off-course or spin-out incidents.

Even so, Mowlem and Wollek finished only 1.6-seconds

out of third place.

Other top Porsche GT finishers included the Kelly-Moss

Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R driven by Christophe Bouchut, from

France, and Atlanta’s Anthony Lazzaro (sixth); the Tom

Burgess/Stefano Buttiero Seikel Porsche 911 GT3 RS (eighth);

and the Kelly-Moss Porsche 911 GT3 R of Rick Polk/Cort Wagner


Built by Porsche Motorsport in the Research and

Development Department at Weissach, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS

delivers 420 horsepower from its 3.6-liter normally-aspirated

engine. In 1999, its first year of competition, the car finished 1-2

in class at Le Mans, and has won its class in the American Le

Mans Series two years in a row.

Porsche also won its class with the GT3 R in the Grand

American Road Racing series in 2000, and is off to a fast start to

defend that title with a 1-2-3 GT finish at the recent Rolex 24

Hours at Daytona. More than 70 Porsche 911 GT3 Rs and GT3

RS‚ have been sold so far worldwide, with almost half of those

cars having raced in the U.S.

The #23 Lucas Luhr/Sascha Maassen Alex Job Racing

McKenna Porsche 911 GT3 RS

The new 2001 model of the Porsche 911 has been designated

as the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and is almost identical to the 2000

Porsche 911 GT3 R. The new car has a larger front radiator, a

slightly different front spoiler and rear wing, and other minor

changes, but remains the same for the major components.

Current GT3 R owners can purchase an update kit from Porsche

which incorporates all the improvements in the new car.

The next event for the American Le Mans Series circuit will

be the Superflo 12 Hours of Sebring presented by Dodge, which

will take place on Saturday, March 17, 2001. As they did a year

ago, Speedvision will telecast the Sebring event from flag-to-flag.

Working the Corners

by Joe McGlohen

PCA Zone 5 has experienced a dramatic growth in track events in

the last 2 years. This growth has provided a lot of very rewarding Porsche

moments for a lot of participants. It has also created an enormous

demand for the "Supporting Cast" of volunteers to keep the events flowing

smoothly off the track, and to provide safety and support service at

the corners on the track. We have been fortunate to lean on SCCA flag

teams in the past, but now we are having so many events that conflict

with the SCCA schedule that we are going to be left high and dry for flagging

and communications workers.

One obvious solution is to ask for volunteer support from members

who are interested in track events, but perhaps not quite ready to participate,

or are not able to gain entry into the crowded field in the lower run

groups. These members can learn quite a bit while being a corner worker.

Not only is working a corner a real eye opener, but it also offers the

best view in the house.

In the 1960s when I was just getting into cars, you had to be 21 to

race in SCCA, but could stand Flag at age 18. I learned more in three

years working Flag and Communication than I would have learned from

Bondurant or Skip Barber school. Members new and old should know

proper worker techniques and to assist in this endeavor we will be conducting

a Flag and Communication clinic in the not to distant future for

HCR and for MAV. LSR held one the first Friday in February at TWS. We

generally try to rotate corner workers and get a broad view and perspective

to folks that want to broaden their exposure. Let me know if any of

this interests you. I know I speak for all of the Zone 5 Drivers Education

and Club Race committees in saying that we would be pleased to have

you join us. Joe McGlohen (817)861-2792 or at

See you on the corners!

Spaghetti Warehouse Dinner Social

by Lanean Hughes

About 40 Maverick’s gathered at The Spaghetti Warehouse in

Bedford on Saturday, February 17th for our dinner social. The food

and conversation were both delightful. Also there to enjoy the evening

was Sally and her family from the Hope Shelter. Sally, Ricky, Emily

and Riley all seemed to really enjoy meeting many of the Maverick

members in attendance. She spoke to us about where she has been

and where she is going and expressed how much she appreciated

Maverick Region and their contributions to her family. She stated that

she felt safe and her children did too, thanks to the kindness of

Maverick Region. My personal thanks to all of you who have supported

and are continuing to support Sally and her family.
