Prez Says

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

The most important event of the year is

coming up very quickly. Hopefully you

are reading this BEFORE it has happened!

Founders’ Day is happening at the Southfork

Ranch about 20 miles north of downtown

Dallas, on November 9th. If you get there before

6pm, there will be a tour of the ranch! RSVP as

quickly as you can!

But first, the morning of Founders’ Day there will be a

Charity Autocross at Pennington Field (Central Exit, just south

of 183 in Bedford). All the profits from this event go directly to

the Hope Shelter in Mineral Wells, the home for victims of

domestic violence.

Parade plans for 2004 are going well. We have met with the

City of Fort Worth regarding Concours locations. The city officials

all liked our presentation and thought it sounded like it

would work. There are still thousands of plans to be made, but

progress is going quite well.

I am writing this just after the final Autocross of the season.

As Timing and Scoring chair, I am compiling and verifying all

the driving event trophies that will be awarded at Founders’

Day. But this last Autocross was something special – with only

13 participants, everyone was a crucial worker! We got all our

runs done by 10:40 in the morning, and had a wonderful lunch

at the Farm House in Cool.

The board meeting will be on November 6th, and the

Lunches in November are on the 19th and 26th. Our driving

season is over, so it is strictly socials for the rest of the year. The

November Happy Hour will be at TBC Indoor Racing on I35 in

Dallas, just South of Regal Row. Those are the types of events

that I really enjoy – the combination of social, driving, and

competition!

...combination ofsocial,driving,and

competition. . .

The annual Holiday Party will be hosted by Alan and Kay

Leibel this year, who have graciously offered their home for the

club! This will be on December 7th; see page 13 for all the

details.

We have something for everyone, so come on out, and join

the fun!

Because I Said So

by Wendy Shoffit, Editor

I’m just going to come out and say it... I have a

gripe this month. Yes, I know it’s totally out of

character for me, but I’m going to go out on a

limb and take a chance that you might not like

what I have to say. I apologize in advance if I offend

you in any way.

I’ve been frustrated lately with comments I’ve

received from several members about their not

knowing about some event or another. It’s seemingly been a shock

that an event is “this weekend” and that if they had known, they

would have planned to be there. Frankly, I don’t know how much

more I can do to give advance warning. The next 3 months’ worth of

events are listed on the calendar page (page 1), it is also on the

website, and I try extremely hard to get event ads in Slipstream in a

timely manner. Yes, I know... the last couple of issues have been

later than usual. Believe it or not, things come up in life that,

unfortunately, mean Slipstream takes a back seat. Most people

understand that when I tell them. I hope you all do.

I realize that for all of you life happens as well. Most of you don’t

plan life events around the Maverick Region schedule. Here’s what I

ask, though. If there is a certain type of event you want to participate

in (Happy Hours, Autocrosses, DE’s, social events, etc.), please

please please look ahead in the calendar and mark the date on your

calendar. Put it in your Palm Pilot if you have to. I hate always saying,

“Mark Your Calendars” on an event ad. It seems redundant. I would

think if you want to attend a function, you’ll do it on your own. You

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Secretary

The October Board Meeting was held at the

home of James and Wendy Shoffit and got

started on time at 7:00 PM. There was a

good turnout for both the pre-meeting dinner and

the regular meeting.

Dennis Chamberlain reported on the latest

happy hours and wanted to remind everyone of

the upcoming events.

A motion was made to provide financial assistance to The

Hope Shelter in Mineral Wells, being that they are in dire financial

need. The Maverick Region has elected to advance expected

proceeds from the scheduled November Charity Autocross. As a

reminder to everyone, this year’s Charity AX will be on November

9 and in town at Pennington Field. Look for the ad on page 2.

Cody Sears reported on the good time had by everyone that

participated in the final Time Trial events for the year, #5 and #6.

Both events were held on the same weekend in Mineral Wells with

a good turnout for both.

Bill Dugan wanted to let everyone know that there would be a

Driving Event Rules Committee meeting December 7th. Everyone

is welcome to participate and give comment. Submit all questions

or comments to Bill.

are all big boys and girls who manage your schedules every single day.

Now, I’m not going to stop putting the reminders out there, but

I hope that you will all plan a little further ahead so that when

something you’ve been wanting to do comes up, it won’t catch you off

guard.

Enough of all that. Onward and upward! As James mentioned,

coming up very quickly is Founders’ Day. That’s an event I look

forward to every year. I really like having a reason to dress up at least

once a year! Seeing James in a tux reminds me of our wedding day. It

gives me warm fuzzies all over. I also really enjoy giving and receiving

awards! The smiles are always amazing. I’ve never been to Southfork

Ranch, so I hope I have time to take the tour. I grew up watching

Dallas, Falcon Crest, Matlock, and Hawaii Five-O with my grandmother.

Ahhhh, more warm fuzzies! I hope to see many of you there.

Oh, before I forget, the Addison Lunch location has changed.

Since the Good Eats on Midway closed down, we have temporarily

decided to meet at the TGI Friday’s at the N. Dallas Tollway and Belt

Line in Addison. A new restaurant, the Texana Grill, is taking over the

Good Eats spot soon. We’ve been told that they have great food. If it’s

good enough, we might change the lunch location again. Watch for

future notices (and mark your calendar).

Lastly, we are looking at options to reduce our Slipstream

printing costs. Since it is published online now, if you are interested in

receiving only an electronic version and stop your printed copy, email

me editor@mavpca.org and we’ll get you set up. Thanks!

As the membership of Maverick Region has grown so has the

circulation of Slipstream, in turn, the associated amount of effort

and cost. It was proposed to the board that the sorting, mailing and

postage management of Slipstream could be outsourced. At this time

we are considering a variety of options, if anyone can recommend

a postal fulfillment organization please contact Andy Mears.

The meeting ended at 8:11 PM. Next month’s board meeting

will be on November 6.

“Moonlight at the Oasis” Happy Hour

by Dennis Chamberlain

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain,

Dee Lersch, and Mark Gluck

The weather forecast was

ominous for our “Moonlight

at the Oasis” happy hour.

Despite that, a smattering of

adventuresome Mavericks ventured

south to Joe Pool Lake, and they

were rewarded with a clearing of the

clouds and a calming of the winds.

We were also rewarded with the

company of none other than the Hill Country region’s registrar

and D.E. instructor Kerry Watson, who had driven all the way

from Austin – her well-known red 944 in tow -- for the happy

hour. (OK, well, she was actually on her way to the Maverick

Region’s MSR D.E., and Joe Pool Lake happened to be in

her path). Kerry apparently arrived early because, by the time

I arrived she was already in a position to recommend their

signature drink, the name of which cannot be repeated in this

family publication. Nonetheless, it was most impressive.

. . . name of which cannot be repeated in

this family publication. . .

Another unexpected treat was the casual mentioning by

Mark Williams’ that, parked outside, was his new 2003 Boxster

S. Mark Gluck and I practically ripped off the Oasis’ front door

in our haste for our first close-up inspection opportunity. Also,

Mark Williams

during dinner, Kerry was kind enough to modestly answer

some D.E. questions -- including a couple of heel-and-toe

pointers.

Be sure to take notice that our November 21st happy hour

will be at TBC, the indoor racing facility on Stemmons, just

south of Regal Row. The vehicles are electric, and the food is

provided by Sonny Bryan’s.

A Seat in Time

By Lanean Hughes

The question people asked me most was, “Lanean, when are

you getting a Porsche???” I would respond with, “When the time

is right.” It finally happened in September 2002. Thanks to the

Meredith family, my dream came true. I have a beautiful 1987

Guards Red 944 Turbo with just the right amount of “KiKK!!”

Photo by Lanean Hughes

. . .I know I have lots yet to learn . . .

My first real driving experience in the new car was the

September DE at Motorsport Ranch (MSR). I had a great

support group of “YaYa Sisters” who were also part of this great

The instructors’ clinic was a success, as always.

event cheering me on. With the great instruction of Michael

Wingfield on the first day and Caren Cooper on the second

day, I am totally in love with this car. Their expertise and

encouragement gave me the confidence I needed to make this

car do what it was intended for - driving at controlled speeds

(and then some) and finding the limits of the car. Heel/Toe, trail

braking, apex… yikes, trying to remember. I was so caught up in

knowing that this was “My Car” that a lot of the driving “buzz

words” just kept spinning in my mind.

Many thanks to those who have helped me fix a few of the

mechanical problems. I know I have lots yet to learn. I can check

the oil, transmission fluid, tire pressure, and every night check

to be sure there are no leaks. That’s the best news you can haveno

leaks!! The car that is 15 years old with 100K+ miles on it still

purrs like a kitten!

The next event I participated in was even more exciting as it

brought back so many wonderful memories of calling my

favorite hotel with a “lake view,” visiting with the owner, getting

the latest update on the family and then seeing if there is a room

for me (of course there is)! Getting up very early, loading the car,

taking an extra tire (if you have one), the cooler, the lawn chair,

and clothes for various weather conditions, the BYOB for the

Saturday night gathering, leaving Dallas and, yes, you guessed

it…heading to the “MineralRing.”

The 917 replica drew quite a crowd,

despite having no engine or transmission!

For many years, trips to Mineral Wells (MW) were all we

had. Autocross (AX) and Time Trials (TT) were the only games.

I found the TT Reunion Weekend to be the best! I soon realized

that you don’t really forget the track. It’s like riding a bike again

and you realize how much fun it all was. To my delight Richard

Diller, was there, who many years ago was my instructor at a

driving school in MW. We chatted awhile and then it was my

pleasure to see that great 911 #550 speed around the MW

course.

Yes, it’s been a long time, but I’m so glad the “Seat in Time”

finally happened. I can now experience all the thrills again and

wave to all those “P-Cars” in Texas!!

ALMS at Laguna Seca, September 20-22, 2002

by Bill Stafford

Photo by Bill Stafford

As usual, this years’ American LeMans Series Race at Mazda

Raceway at Laguna Seca was filled with elation, sorrow,

suspense, good food and wonderful weather. Fog, now

labeled “marine layer”, was prevalent as always but didn’t slow

anything but practice and qualifying.

The race this year was a month earlier than usual and thus

escaped the higher potential of fall rain. There were several

highlight events at the track. Dr. Don Panoz debuted the New

Star Mazda Racecar (see later in this article) and a Class 8 Super

Truck (8000 pound Semi, 1260 horsepower, twin turbo diesel on

delight the crowd and try to drum up fans for the Super Truck

Racing Association of North America (STRANA). They plan to

start the series next year. Watch for the STRANA special on ESPN2

in November. Improvements to the track are still underway.

The track is changing – new stands along pit road and bigger

gravel pits and tire barricades for safety. Additional changes in

the upcoming years include new permanent garages with Pit

Row suites above; hillside terraced seating, and a new Start-

Finish bridge. Overall $11 million of improvements are planned.

as ex Formula 1 drivers JJ Lehto and Max Angelelli brought

the Cadillac Northstar LMP home third. This was their second

consecutive podium finish; unfortunately the timing was just a

bit off as the funding for the LMP program has been terminated

which might not be a bad thing.

In the LMP-675 (low power LMP) Class, all top three finishers

were in Lola EX257/AER MGs. The top finisher was the Chad

Traffic Jam at the Corkscrew

Bloch/Claudia Huertgen/Steve Block trio. Second was James

Weaver/Butch Leitzinger duo followed by the Jon Field/Rick

Sutherland car.

The best race of the afternoon took place in the GTS category

as the Ferrari team had some unfinished business to care take

care of from Le Mans. Now that the Ferrari is able to last the

entire race without a mechanical, they’re proving to be the cars

to beat in GTS. Tomas Enge #33-GTS Ferrari 550 Maranello had

the pole in GTS and this was his first time at the track and

hadn’t taken a lap before the first scheduled practice. The Saleen

S7R of Franz Konrad and Terry Borcheller qualified second. The

Corvette Team wasn’t happy to see either the Ferrari or the

Saleen in front of them, but as Andy Pilgrim expressed “it’s good

for the series”. Team Corvette - #3, Ron Fellows and Johnny

O’Connell were knocked into the Turn Four gravel trap by the

Cadillac (déjà vu – same place they put Boris Said last year)

which led to a broken exhaust which led to a fire. In the fire vs.

Races

In the LeMans Prototype class (LMP-900) the #1 Audi

driven by Emanuele Pirro and Frank Biela scored their second

ALMS win of the year despite the whining and fretting of

Emanuel Pirro. In his defense, Pirro was fighting the flu and the

crew did have to replace the tub due to the crash at the previous

race at Mosport. The “new” chassis was the same one that won at

Le Mans wrenched by Reinhold Joest. Overall they had a good

weekend as they qualified on the pole and enjoyed an essentially

trouble-free race to win by nearly 26 seconds over the Privateer

Champion Audi of Johnny Herbert and Stefan Johansson. Team

Cadillac finally proved that they are not just another pretty face

composite materials, fire always wins. The corner workers at

the corkscrew were apparently not fully trained on the fire

equipment as they tried to put the fire out from 15 feet away on

the side away from the fire. They did manage to blast the driver

in the face with the powder though. But no one was hurt and the

crowd always loves a good barbeque. Desperate to get a

high podium finish, the other Corvette of Andy Pilgrim and

Kelly Collins, gambled on fuel to outlast the Ferrari, but

apparently ran out 2 laps from the finish leaving them 3rd in

class and 16th overall.

In GT (until recently, the Porsche class), Lucas Luhrs' #23-

GT Porsche 911 GT3 RS captured his third pole of 2002 and the

seventh of this career. Luhr and Sascha Maasen enjoyed their

fifth win of the year in the GT class with a one-lap victory over

the Anthony Lazzaro/Ralf Kelleners Ferrari 360 Modena. Alex

Job Racing teammates Timo Bernhad and Jorg Bergmeister lost

a sure second place when the Porsches’ gear lever came off in

Berhands hand five laps from the end. Kevin Buckler and Brian

Cunningham survived a horrendous weekend of mechanical

trouble to claim third. Kevin Buckler, Racer’s Group, #66-GT

Porsche 911 GT3 RS, is one of a very few teams that are trying to

complete in both the ALMS and Grand-Am series. Master of the

understatement, Buckler stated “Going from Grand-AM one

weekend to ALMS the next and setting up the car differently for

each series is proving to be tough. It seems like the first two days

of each race weekend we’re going through major setup changes.”

Hmmmm……

took first in a Porsche Cup 911. Peter Cunningham was second

in his Acura NSX and Justin Marks was third in another 911 Cup

car. A local firm (AER) rented Boris Said who managed to motor

a Roush Mustang into 14th place. Something was said about

slippery track. How’s that for bad R.O.I?

There was also a Shifter Cart race. The carting guys are a fun

bunch. They are eager to help each other and completely open

about their gear. Refreshing! There were also lapping the circuit

in about the same lap times as the GTS Corvettes but just 1 inch

off of the ground. WOW! You also get the long vanished odor of

burning Castrol from these horizontal motorcycles.

Dr. Don Panoz unveiled the new Mazda Star series racer.

This basic “affordable” open wheel racecar is being sold for

$66.5k (accessory list still to come). Will this series prove as

popular as the Toyota series? Will it be the platform for young

drivers? For his backing/funding/promotion of the new series

Dr. Panoz was present a very kitschy Mazda R8 Rotor with a

clock in the middle for his, uh, desk… The Star Mazda racecar,

features the same next-generation Mazda rotary engine as the

forthcoming Mazda RX-8, is scheduled for testing in 2003 and

will run in the Star Mazda Series North American

Championship, a support series to the American Le Mans Series,

in 2004. The Star Mazda Series develops racecar driving careers

THE TRUCK...8,000 lbs of thundering diesel racer!

by providing an opportunity for drivers to complete on the same

racetracks used for professional events and is one of the most

successful racing series in the U.S. Many well-respected drivers

have risen through the ranks from Star Mazda including Le

Mans 24-hour GT class winner Bruno Lambert. Last year,

average of more than 40 racecars started each Star Mazda series

event. Hey, you want a new RX-8? Win the series and get one for

free in 2003. Win the series in 2004 and add $100,000 to the free

car giveaway.

Rat Notes:

After practice or qualifying most drivers’ comments are very

positive for example: It was nearly perfect, I made a small mistake,

the car is the best it has been this weekend, I had a little bit

of over steer, etc. Then there were comments from Jon Field #37-

P675 MG Lola EX257 on Saturday after the practice session.

“Terrible! The car was a pig. We missed sessions because of the

engine and the clutch. We haven’t moved forward all weekend.”

Whoa, Jon, it’s part MG! - Take a nerve pill and call me in the

morning.

Of Timing Tents and Brain Cells Bent

by Michele deJong

Photo by Kevin Hardison

Ido believe a good time was had by all at autocross #5 held at

Pennington field. The kids got lucky and watched movies in the A/C

provided by the Shoffit’s large American (is that in the OA class?)

vehicle. The rest of us adult types gleefully contributed to the already

smoggy air with fast times through a truly LOOPY course by Cody

Sears. More than a few folks had at least one DNF run as the pivot cone

was negotiated and the curls continued. (Who says you have to be

blonde to be dizzy?!)

Michele deJong playing catch with her new ducktail.

Mike and I haven’t been out much lately, so a combination of rusty

driving skills and slippery street tires made for some amusing “toss and

catch”, but we did have the silly grin that comes from NOT losing it and

improving times. (Although Mike’s fix for “Spinner”- a ducktail- wasn’t

enough to prevent style points on cooked tires) The variety of cars (lots

of OTHER makes) and drivers was fun to watch and we met some folks

that we hadn’t had the chance to greet yet. (Hi, again.)

feat of mental gymnastics. And there’s generally a second or two for

commentary on the radios. WELL! At these intervals, it was all we could

do keep our heads from exploding (imploding?) with the info-flow. As

James said,“This is taking my entire brain, and I’m not sure how much

I had to start with!” Or something to that effect.

Posting was equally fun as the run groups were in no particular

order and cars in any group were bound to be at totally opposite ends

of the posting board. With the loss of Mike in the afternoon, James had

to call the class as well as the car number so Myra had a better chance

of finding the correct driver. (“OA, OJ, OG OH SH--!) The brain cells

further warped upon finding a couple of CUVs (completely unknown

vehicles) on the course—ACK. (Ok—white OG #77, now red OJ #77)

Thanks to grid for putting up with the occasional glitch due to our

whirling eyeballs and timing lines being crossed by two-legged beasties

instead of 4-wheeled toys.

So—if you encountered James or myself on the road after the fun,

you now understand the “Bill the Cat” meets “The Pointy-haired Boss”

look on our faces! I had to remind myself that I made a prime target for

law-enforcement types due to the “Porsche factor” and idiot-avoidance

tactics. Thanks for a WONDERFULLY mind-bending and FUN

Now, about that timing tent. Worker assignments were graciously

made with kids in mind (thank you!) which meant Mike and I were in

posting and timing. I did timing with Wendy and James trying to keep

track of cars crossing lines at less than 15sec intervals, finding said cars

on the timing sheets, acknowledging and recording times, cones hit,

DNF’s, etc., and calling times etc to posting. For those of you who have

worked timing before, you know that this isn’t ordinarily all that great a
