Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

Last month I mentioned how much I look

forward to February as the start of the

racing season. It begins for me with

the Daytona 24 hour Sports Car Race.

Congratulations to Kevin Buckler and his Racers

Group team for an overall win this year in the

#66 Porsche GT3RS. I began buying parts

through the mail seven years ago from Kevin

when he and his wife Debra were the whole

company. Kevin walked me through many an installation talking

to me on my cordless phone while I was leaning over the car.

Kevin still club races with PCA and is a regular guy.

Of course, a GT class car never should have won Daytona

in the first place. It was only because of problems with many

of the cars in the brand-new Daytona Prototype class that

attrition allowed a lower-category car to win first place overall.

We’ll see how Grand-Am does this year. I still don’t think there

is enough fan and sponsor interest in three sports car organizations-

SCCA, Grand-Am, and American Le Mans. We’ll see…

So what have I done so far starting in February? I attended

Autocross 101 – an introduction to autocrossing, and Karen

attended the ladies-only autocross school the day before at

Pennington field. She loved it. I’ve only driven my Boxster on

the street for the past three months and I forgot where the

steering wheel was pointed a few times when the car was sliding.

By the time you read this we will have completed our first track

event, the Drivers Education at MotorSport Ranch. So what is

going on in March? A full calendar, of course, as the weather

improves.

you can enjoy working on your own car with your hands and do

a better job than most paid-services is good old-fashioned

washing, waxing, and interior cleaning. It can be time-consuming

but there is nothing like a clean Porsche in-and-out! There are

various websites such as www.carcareonline.com that will tell

you about techniques, and sell you the cleaning products.

Another thing is an oil and filter change, and/or changing the

pollen or particle filters on the newer cars. Again, this is about

50% of the total scheduled maintenance on a daily driver over

time. There are people who also think routine brake services

such as pad replacements and fluid flushing are too complicated

for the novice. It’s easier than you think, and in just a couple

of years can save you enough money to spend more on other

fun car-related stuff. There will be opportunities over the year

to attend tech-clinics designed to demonstrate the things you

can work on yourself on your Porsche.

Finally, next month I’m going put on paper, a frequent

dream of pretending what I would acquire (money being no

object) if I had to fill a 15-stall warehouse collection of

Porsches. Racecars, road cars, and special editions- you name

it. All these cars should be drivable. While I might not put

much mileage on them, they are theoretically able to run as

intended with reasonable notice. Factory mechanics on call!

Why don’t you all think about it also and email me with your

favorite road and race Porsches. You don’t have to list 15. I’ll

take everyone’s favorites and compile a weighted list of our

readership’s 15, and my 15. Feel free to add your comments. I

bet your list will be more interesting than mine!

...I forgot where the steering wheel was pointed

a few times when the car was sliding...

There is one more set of autocross and time-trial schools,

on March 8-9 this time being held at Mineral Wells, and the

first regular timed-event autocross and time-trial weekend of

the year will also be out at Mineral Wells at the end of March.

Time trials are on Saturday, and autocrosses are on Sunday.

The schools are low-pressure, instructive, and fun. Our first

dinner social is March 1 as well as our first tour of the year

along the Dogwood Trail to Palestine on March 23rd. Please

look over the calendar on the first page for the rest of the

month’s activities.

March 15 marks the long-awaited and much-ballyhooed

introduction of the Cayenne Sport Utility Vehicle. I don’t know

about you, but feel as if this thing has been written about,

talked about, and sneak-previewed for ten years already. And

just when a gallon of gas is almost as expensive as a gallon of

milk. I guess timing is everything. I read that every Cayenne

they will produce for the next 18 months is spoken for.

Hopefully our area dealers will have some unveiling parties, etc.

I think the Cayenne and the Hummer H2 compete for the most

exotic medium-duty tow vehicle.

I have often heard people talk at our socials about what

services they can or cannot do on their Porsches as far as owner

maintenance is concerned. Many people think if you can’t

perform a tune-up then you might as well not work on the car

at all. I’m not sure about that. One of the biggest areas where

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Editor

We have had another interesting February

here in Texas. I can’t think of any other

place where you can have 70 degree

top-down weather within a week of getting 2

inches of sleet that totally shuts down a metroplex

of over 3 million people, then right back to

pleasant sunny days just as quickly! One can only

wish for nice weather on our event weekends, but

that just wasn’t the case for our Ladies Autocross School and

Autocross 101 at Pennington Field a few weekends ago. There

wasn’t any precipitation, but the temperatures did nothing but drop

for the entire weekend. The temperature was somewhere around 30

degrees with a wind chill in the teens for the Sunday morning

driver’s meeting! It didn’t seem to matter though, all participants

and workers had a great time.

Cold weather and all, the driving season is officially under way.

February was chock-full of teaching and learning, and there’s still

ground to be covered. Make sure to examine the calendar closely,

you don’t want to miss a Drivers Education, Club Race, Autocross,

Time Trial, Rally, or Tour because you failed to plan appropriately.

Don’t forget that all of the DEs in our area fill up quickly. If you

would like to get in, you must follow the entry rules to the letter.

We are also quickly approaching the 2002 Tampa Parade in

Maverick Minutes

by Mimi Spreen

The February board meeting was held on Tuesday February 4th at

Lanean Hughes’ abode. Joe McGlohen provided barbeque for

dinner. In attendance were Lanean, Wendy Shoffit, Mimi Spreen,

Keith Olcha, Michael Wingfield, Mark Steele, Matt Platts, Noby

Takahashi, Joe McGlohen, Teri and Charlie Davis, Mike Brodigan, Cody

Sears and Bob Knight. The meeting started at 7:05 with Keith's "Round

the Room" reports.

Mike Brodigan advised that advertising was going well. We've

added 2 ads and dropped 1, collected some back fees and plan on

selling more 1/4 and 1/2 page ads because of the ease of handling and

the higher revenue. Matt Platts stated that the February Slipstream is

at press and should be mailed out in the next few days.

Teri reported that the rally school was good, although it lost a

small amount of money. Teri can forward the class materials to

anyone who didn't go to the school. Parade for Dummies which was

held at The Prairie House in Carrollton was well attended, even

though we had our first SNOW of the year.

Noby is planning on requesting insurance for the upcoming

events. Mark Steele said TT104 had 25 attendees, which gave

everyone plenty of runs. Wendy actually drove Mitch's Miata and beat

Bob Benson AND Jan Mayo!! (Oops, should I not have said that ;-)

Lanean said that the New Member Party was very well attended,

the beautiful weather helped that I'm sure. I want to take a moment

to thank Lanean for taking over my part of putting this party

together at the last minute. My 100 year old grandmother passed

away and I was in Shreveport for her funeral. Thanks again, Lanean.

June. If you haven’t made your plans already, there may still be a few

available spots, so act quickly! You should also consider renewing

your PCA membership early if possible. Imagine the disappointment

if you were trying to get into a DE only to find out that your

membership had lapsed and you had to scurry to renew before the

event. You can renew early online at the www.pca.org website.

Once again this month, you will have the pleasure of reading

articles written by our region’s members. The different points

of view expressed

by these talented

writers is colorful and

creative, you can

really get a feel for

being at the event

right along with

them. In fact, why

don’t you attend the

next event with them?

Imagine how much

fun you could have!

Look for me at

your next event, I’d

love to say “hi”.

A reminder of our 2003 “sleet attack”

Lanean also said that the February Happy Hour is at Sherlock's

Pub. The April 13 Bus lot for AX will have bathrooms and concessions.

It will also have bleachers. Due to an IRL conflict at TMS, we

can't have the October 12 date, so the alternative is Oct 25 and 26.

Sponsor checks for club race have been received.

Wendy brought up an addition to the event calendar for July 12

from 11-1 PM at the McKinney Library. It will be an informal

concours for kids ranging in age from 12-18. Motion made and

passed to add this to the calendar.

Joe mentioned that 9 radios need to be replaced for a total of

approximately $2300.00 which included carrying boxes. It was decided

that we could wait until after the Feb DE to make the expenditure,

since we would not need the radios until after that event anyway.

Cody requested volunteer workers and instructors for the

upcoming driving schools. Volunteers are needed for the Ladies AX

on 2/15, AX101 on 2/16 as well as the Mineral Wells event on March

8 & 9. Contact Cody if you are available and would like to help.

Last, but not least, the truck! Charlie informed us of a truck that

he has found. He actually drove it and said there were some things

that would need to be fixed, but overall it looked ok. He checked into

insurance coverage. A motion was made to buy the truck for

$2000.00. The motion was seconded and approved.

Meeting was adjourned at 9:10 pm.

Happy Hour at Railhead

by Claire Athy

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain, Tinker

Edwards, and Mark Gluck

One of our most fun and unexpected

Christmas gifts this year

was given to us by two of our

children - a membership to the Porsche

Club of America. We received lots of

PCA materials in the mail, including

"Slipstream". We looked them all over

and observed that it seemed the

Regional Mavericks Club had a large

number of active members who did a

variety of exciting and fun things. Then Dennis Chamberlain called

and invited us to the Happy Hour at The Railhead on January 16,

2003 to get acquainted with some of the members and to hear more

about the various events that the club had to offer. During the phone

Gregg and Claire Athy

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain

discussion, Dennis and my husband, Gregg, had a discussion about

DE, which was the event in which Gregg was most interested.

Since the Railhead was relatively close we decided to go to find

out what it was all about. Despite being a bitterly cold night there

was a good turnout for the get together, we enjoyed the drinks, the

food, and good conversation. The big barbeque sandwiches were

delicious, and the french-fries smothered with grilled onions were

most unique.

John and Marlo Pulliam

We had an opportunity to meet quite a few Porsche owners

and hear about the specific activities and events they each enjoyed.

Since the Goodie Store was open and doing a good business, we

ordered our name badges from John, Dee, and Demi Lersch. We

did discover that most of the members with whom we spoke had

belonged to the PCA for quite a few years and it was obvious while

listening to them that their enthusiasm for their cars and the club

had not diminished.

I can't begin to remember the names of all those that we

met, but in addition to Dennis and the Lersch’s, we had the

opportunity to talk with Jay Easley and Anastasia Zaruba, Debbie

Lage, Joe Rode, Annette Nolte, Mike Brodigan, Keith Olcha, and

Tinker Edwards. They all made us feel welcome.

Living in Fort Worth we probably won't make it to all the

Happy Hours in Dallas but we'll try to make as many as we can.

We're also looking forward to doing some of the tours and other

scheduled events. According to Dennis, the March 20 happy hour

returns to the Saltgrass Steakhouse in Irving, at 635 and

MacArthur.

It was an enjoyable Happy Hour and we thank all of you for

your hospitality.

Carrera GT Unveiled in Geneva

by PCNA

ATLANTA, FEBRUARY 4, 2003 --- Stuttgart, Germany-based Dr.

Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG will unveil its V10-powered Carrera GT highperformance

roadster in March at the Geneva International Motor Show.

With more than 600 horsepower and racing-inspired technology,

Porsche's top-of-the-line sports car delivers pure performance.

The Carrera GT has a pure racing engine. Its 10-cylinder powerplant

with dry-sump lubrication is based on Porsche's 5.5-liter V10 naturally

aspirated engine developed especially for racing. For production,

technicians at the Development Center in Weissach, Germany, have

increased the displacement to 5.7 liters. Maximum output is 612

horsepower (DIN*) at 8,000 rpm, with peak torque rated at 437 poundfeet.

The Carrera GT has a top test-track speed of 205 miles per hour

(330 k/h) and accelerates from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds.

Its specially developed six-speed manual gearbox allows it to go from zero

to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.9 seconds.

Porsche developed a new construction concept for road and racing

vehicles. The Carrera GT's monocoque and entire sub-frame are made

of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), and Porsche has applied to

patent this technology. Carbon is the only material that, after complex

processing, can meet the requirements needed to combine top-class

driving performance and driving dynamics with minimum weight at

maximum rigidity.

With attainable speeds of more than 186 mph (300 km/h),

aerodynamics plays a crucial role. To achieve as high output co-efficients

Photo Provided by PCNA

as possible (so-called "downforce"), the Carrera GT has an underbody

geometry that can only be found in similar form in pure racing sports cars.

The underbody is completely cased in carbon fiber and provides an

additional suction effect thanks to its rear diffusor and flow channels.

The Carrera GT also features the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake

(PCCB) system. Porsche has supplied this component since 2001 and is

the first manufacturer to include it in a mass-produced vehicle (the 911

Carrera GT2). A global innovation - the PCCC (Porsche Ceramic

Composite Clutch) - transmits power to the drivetrain.

The first Carrera GT models produced at the Porsche plant in

Leipzig, Germany, will be delivered to customers at the end of 2003.

Ladies Autocross School

by Alicia Reich

Have you ever washed your car at 5:30 AM? I did, in

preparation for my first Autocross School, held on Feb

15 at Pennington Field in Bedford. I am not an early

bird by definition, so this took significant commitment on my

part to finally fall out of bed. My Dad told me that the car had

to sparkle like a gem or it would not pass Tech Inspection. Of

course, I didn’t really believe that bluff, but I’m a wee bit of a

neat freak and I just had the urge to make my car shine. With

one exception, everyone else at the autocross school had also

washed their car at 5:30 AM, because they were all clean despite

significant recent rain!

And what beauuutifuuuul cars they were! The Boxsters

are neat, and the 911’s are cool, but my heart was won over by

the new Mini. What a cute car! My snazzy ride is a 1990

BMW 525i (Dad calls it “my daily driver”), which clocks at just

under 100,000 miles. Dad bought it for Mom when it was

three years old, and we’ve taken good care of it since, and it is

now most definitely “mine”.

...My dad told me that the car had to sparkle like

a gem or it would not pass tech inspection...

I am a junior at Ursuline Academy and started driving to

school a year ago, six months after I earned my license. It took

a while for Dad to acknowledge that I was a safe driver and

grant me the freedom of the road in my own car. Although I

have driven a go-cart on a number of occasions and definitely

enjoyed it, I had never participated in a driving competition

before.

Like everyone, I went onto the track as a passenger in

itially as my instructor zipped round the skid pad. While she

was cranking the gas, little old me was mashed against the

passenger door, heavy helmet jammed up against the glass.

Photo by Matt Platts

After the first ride, I gulped and feebly told my instructor

that I have had “minor” encounters with motion sickness

throughout my life. Amazingly, when I took the drivers seat

and slowly passed the first few cones, I found that I had left the

motion sickness behind in the passenger seat!

My instructor, Lisa, specified that the counterclockwise

rotation should feel easier than running clockwise, but I found

my best results when circling clockwise. After my third run

clockwise, the facilitator at my station told me I was driving

with only three wheels on the ground! I was shocked and

started apologizing, but he laughed at my reaction and said a

“three-wheeley” was a good thing. And it sure felt awesome,

too!

After lunch, our group rotated to the slalom and braking

exercises. Out of all the simulations, I found the braking to

be exceptionally helpful. Lisa instructed me to calculate the

braking distance of my car, and then apply that information to

determine a braking point for each corner. This was excellent

information and I find myself applying it constantly to my

driving habit on the road only a week later.

Twice during the day I encountered the members of a

girl’s soccer team in the restroom. The first time, one of the

girls asked if I was a professional race car driver. I immediately

giggled and said, “No, just having some fun.” But when I

encountered more of the same team later in the day, I surprisingly

responded with a proud “yup” before I even realized I

opened my mouth. Could this be a subconscious recognition

of my goal in life? The girls responded, “that’s so cool,” and

as I walked out of the restroom waving bye to my new friends,

I sighed giddily after my first encounter with fan adulation.

I sure am glad the PCA and Maverick Region decided to

let the younger crowd learn a bit about car control in an

autocross setting. It was pure fun packed with good information

(thanks, Lisa and School Crew!). I am planning to run the

entire autocross series, so hope to see you there! Does anybody

Christmas at Hope Shelter

By Lanean Hughes & Wendy Shoffit

Once again this year, the Maverick Region was able to help

out at the Hope Shelter during the 2002 Christmas season.

Many members contributed gifts, stuffed animals, stockings,

and stocking stuffers. Several deliveries were made during the

month of December, all gifts were well received and enjoyed by

everyone at the shelter.

Dorothee Thielisch’s hand-made stockings were great, they

were so big that some of the children could almost fit inside

them! If you attended the holiday party at the Leibel’s house, you

probably helped to contribute to the the huge pile of stuffed

animals and toys under (and around) the Christmas tree. Can

you believe that all of that plush was squeezed into Lanean’s 944

Turbo for the trip out to the shelter? We joked that if Lanean got

pulled over while driving home that night, that she would surely

be able to talk herself out of that situation. What police officer

could resist all those cute bears staring out of the back window?

Here are some photographs to help us remember the season

and maybe even start thinking about what we will be doing to

help this worthy cause throughout 2003.

Autocross 101

By Bob Lewis

This past fall I purchased a Porsche. After the sale I was told

that PCA organized great events. I was told that they provided

an opportunity to exercise the car and your abilities. Some

events were held at high speed race tracks. My eyes glazed over in

anticipation. I later found a Slipstream and discovered where and how

to join. After receiving my first Slipstream I saw an announcement for

a DE event. I applied. There was a new member welcoming party

which I attended. There I was encouraged to attend Autocross events

to learn some of the potential of my car. After all, the car has too much

speed to test it’s limits among the civilians on urban streets.

When I enrolled in Intro Autocross 101 I thought that this

venue might be classroom only. As it turned out a classroom might

have been a welcome break from the weather, but that’s another

story. The morning was filled with exercises for the car and driver.

My group started with braking. Next we went to a counterclockwise

skid pad. Then we went on to a clockwise skid pad. Lastly, we had 3

slaloms with different cone placements. These were comprised of a

constant distance between cones, an increasing, and decreasing

distances between cones.

We were assigned an instructor for the entire day. This

instructor was with us each time we drove the car. What a great

method to learn. At each exercise he drove first and explained the

good, bad, and ugly of the strategy of that exercise. Then we got to

drive and discovered the ugly, bad and sometimes the good of our

maneuvers.

Photo by Matt Platts

We had a drivers meeting that outlined the morning activities

and previewed the afternoon. My first exercise was the braking one.

I launched the car at full throttle. At something past 7,000 RPM in

second I hit the brakes. The car stopped short by a couple of feet

Bob Lewis getting the “feel” for his new C4S

from the target line. The next times I slowed somewhat, but each

time was beyond the target line by a few feet. The car stopped in

much less distance and time than I expected.

18


The next two exercises were on the skid pads. We learned that the

car would take a different radius with only a modulation of

the throttle. I held the steering wheel in one position and was able to

change the line of the car using just the throttle. Later in the day I was

a corner worker at a skid pad and was able to see the other cars doing

this very thing. Having both experiences was very educational.

...At something past 7,000 RPM in

second I hit the brakes...

Next were the three slaloms. My instruction, Jason, showed how

to blip the throttle at strategic places to bring the rear end around

the cones. They were telling us that the best line is a straight one

with only minor amounts of steering wheel action. I was to feel the

handling action thru my seat. I either need more practice or thinner

pants. I could conceptualize the throttle steering but didn’t seem to

reduce it to practice very well. I need more practice with this

skill. It should be pretty easy but would be tailored to your car’s

performance.

We broke for lunch. The event leadership arranged the cones

into an autocross track. We had a drivers meeting. They showed us

how this track layout was an extension of the very exercises we had

practiced in the morning. They added a 360 degree hairpin which I

never did do as well as had hoped. My times decreased except for the

last time where I think I reverted to my instincts not the teaching.

Knowing our times was great instant gratification.

It was an awakening to see an automatic heavy Corvette have

the fastest times among the students. The he and she drivers of this

car were able to accelerate between the sections of the track and

brake with their left foot. I did not practice that. He and his wife

were experienced autocross participants according to my instructor.

The Miatas displayed a great deal of balance and turned in good

times also. Horsepower was not a much of a requirement for this

track design. You needed great handling, knowledge of your car’s

potential, and the skill to unleash it.

The weather was cold and very windy this Sunday. The wind

chill factor must have been well below freezing. There were twenty

or so Maverick Region volunteers out in this miserable weather

helping us newbies learn the ropes. These people must be fanatical

and dedicated. They seem to be my kind of people. When I commit

to something it takes an awful lot of bad things for me not to show

up. All of the students owe a debt of gratitude to those organizing

this event. My instructor did not drive a sport type of car to the

track. I offered to let him drive mine during the fun runs, but he

declined. After two days his face was wind burned, he was cold, and

only wanted a hot bath at home.

I had a great time. Thanks again to those that worked at this

event.

Time Trial 104

by James Shoffit

It was early on a Saturday morning when we arrived. Wendy and

I had spent the night at the new Best Western in Mineral Wells

(four thumbs up, by the way!), and quickly noticed the cars were

all covered in a thick frost. The drive to the MineralRing saw the

temperature dip 30...29...28...27...26... where it stopped and started

moving back up. The sun was soon up, and the clear day without

wind slowly warmed us as we unloaded the car, set up timing,

trailer, and course.

Charlie Davis was taking a few spins in John Garcia’s

Formula Atlantic race car to see if his size-12 body would fit in

the size-5 car. Someone yelled “hey, the space shuttle should be

passing over!”

Eyes turned upward, we saw the streak – air molecules

miles per hour reentering our atmosphere 40 miles up. Then

something seemed to fall off. Then another something, and then

another. Soon the main streak split into two, and we heard a loud

boom. We hoped that this was normal reentry process, but the

radio soon confirmed nagging doubts.

The time trial school went on, though it was somewhat

delayed in the confusion. Once underway, students and

instructors alike were treated to a year’s worth of time trials

all compressed into a single day for one low, low price.

The day started with everyone working on Course 1.

Students and instructors were paired up, hopped in a car with the

instructor driving, and were treated to 3 slow(er) laps each,

who was the student and who was the instructor. They both

complained about their instructors and about having students

that just wouldn’t listen.

Chuck & Noby disagreeing about the line

Bill Miller learned the most valuable lesson – never bring

really old tires to ANY event and try to drive on them. His spins

resulted in at least 3 new nicknames : calls of “Spin Miller”,“Thrill

Miller”, and “Tractor Bill” followed him around all day.

(I won’t mention the times that Wendy and I ended up kneedeep

in weeds – or John Garcia nearly lost a wheel)

David Pang gives his aero kit a workout

Many thanks go to the organizers and contributors – Kevin

Hardison, Cody Sears, and Wendy Shoffit, to name a few.

Let’s hope we do this one again next year – it was the best

value I have seen!

Ben Hartsell crosses the finish line

followed by two more sets of 3 hot laps. Then the driver became

the passenger in the former passenger’s car and again did a set of

3 slower laps, followed by 2 sets of 3 laps. Then worker changes,

rinse, and repeat.

Then we set up course 2 and each entrant had 2 sets of 3 hot

laps both as a driver and a passenger. Then the same was repeated

for course 3. The day was finished off with a shootout for top

time of day (which can’t be published since this was a school).

The newest people to time trials received instruction from

the most experienced drivers, while those closer together in skill

were often placed together. Chuck and Noby are still fighting over

Rally School

by Russell McLellan

From the passenger seat, my partner’s eyes darted back and forth

between the surrounding landscape and a set of directions that

slightly resembled Egyptian Hieroglyphics as he tried to find the

next turn. I watched the speedometer for any movement off 25, and

tried to estimate how much faster I should go to compensate for the

last Stop sign.

Why were two people so concentrated on driving 25 mph which

should be so easy for one of the best performance cars in the world?

We were competing in our first T-S-D (Time-Speed-Distance) Rally.

We, along with about 20 other people, had spent the morning

attending Maverick Region’s Rally School. We learned how to read a

tulip diagram, understand “all” the rules, e.g. what is a “rally road,

and what is not. Most importantly for that day’s competition, what

was “protection”. Which turned out to be a concept that would trip

up many cars during the afternoon, including ours?

We learned that the key to a T-S-D rally was to have the closest

Driving a Porsche at 25 MPH. It Can be

Tough... Really!

time to the “perfect” time calculated in advance by the Rally master.

That time would be measured at a series of checkpoints on course,

and we would not know the location of those checkpoints. If we got

off course we would not only add time as we found our way back, but

we might actually miss a checkpoint. It seems that good Rally Master

could, and would, put traps along the course that would allow us to

continue on what appeared to be the course, but in fact wasn’t.

Photo by Matt Platts

We also found out why a Rally master was that diabolical.

Besides making the course more challenging for us, they and their

team, had invested about 150 hours and driven about 1000 miles to

create our 50 plus mile course.

So what was all this about? What’s a rally? Why are they so

challenging, and maybe most importantly, why were we all doing this?

A classroom full of enthusiastic students

I had heard about road rallies ever since my fascination with

sports cars had begun many years ago. I never really understood what

was involved, let alone why so many people, both amateurs and professionals,

were involved in rallies around the world. Maverick

Region gave me the opportunity to get the scoop a few Saturdays ago!

Teri Davis from the Maverick Region had assembled a great

team of people to take our class through everything we needed know

24


to compete in a Rally. We learned there are several different types of

rallies. Routed rallies like the Time-Speed-Distance type that we’re

going to do that afternoon, and Gimmick routed rallies. Gimmick

rallies which might be a scavenger hunt, Hare and Hounds where the

hare (The leader) leaves markers along the course and the hounds

(the competitors) have to follow the route; and Poker Runs where

instead of a time slip at each checkpoint you get a “card”. Finally

Performance Rallies that include SCCA national ProRallies and

divisional ClubRallies. These are done on blocked roads and are run

like Routed Rallies.

Then we were on the course. A course that required both of us

to totally concentrate on our respective jobs. His as navigator, which

I quickly learned I was totally dependent, and mine as driver, on

which he was totally dependent. A great part of rallying is that it truly

is a partnership and a shared competition. We found out later in the

Teri Davis & Carey Spreen clarify with a diagram

After a great morning of cramming our heads full of an amazing

amount of information we were off to the roads around Texas Motor

Speedway for some practice runs before the afternoon’s actual

rally. We practiced how we would communicate directions, share

decisions, and generally tried to figure out together how we were

going to end up finishing with a respectable, and hopefully winning,

time.

Apparently Mark & Lisa had enough time to stop for refreshments...

day that we managed to finish in the middle of the group, but more

importantly had learned a lot and had met, and spent a wonderful

day with, a group of terrific people.

Would we do it again? Absolutely! In fact a few emails have

been exchanged “plotting” our next event, and beginning to develop

our strategy. We had a chance to discover a new and curiously very

“must try” list.
