Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

Last month I promised I’d give you,in my opinion,my list

of 15 of my favorite greatest Porsches. Well,I will do that

further down the page, but first some miscellaneous

news: 2002 was a record year for 911 (996) sales in North

America, however Boxster sales declined slightly compared to

the previous year. The U.S. will receive an allocation of 1000 of

the new GT3s. I have seen the order guide for this car, and I

am drooling! The specifications are awesome- a car for both

road and track excellence.

Currently, there are 53,000 active members in the Porsche Club of America.

All told, PCA held over 1000 separate events for enthusiasts in the U.S. An event

is a single DE, Autocross, Concours, etc. It is also expected that Cayenne sales

should increase membership in PCA. The introduction is March 17th, and some

of you have already taken test-drives in this ultimate SUV.

As far as events so far since my last column, I’ve been to the Drivers

Education at MotorSport Ranch, and the Autocross 102 class at Mineral Wells.

Both were excellent events and it was nice to get back behind the wheel of my 911.

April 5 marks our first Rally, and there is a driving tour through the Hill County

on April 11-13. We’ve also got an autocross at none-other than the Texas Motor

Speedway bus parking lot on April 13th. There is also a high-speed time-trial at

Mineral Wells on the 26th. As usual there are April lunches and our monthly

Happy Hour as well. Look for details in this issue.

So what about my list of all-time favorites? Okay, my cars fall into two

categories: road cars and race cars. Road cars followed by race cars, in somewhat

particular order:

1) 1973 911 Carrera RS Touring- white with blue inverse Carrera script. A

Euro-only car in its day, it is light, taut, fast, no-power anything (Except brakes). 2.7-

liter engine, the production run was the basis for homologating the RSRs in 1973 and

1974. It is the perfect normally aspirated 911 coupe in terms of looks,throttle response,

and handling.

2) 1955 550/1500 GS Spyder – silver. A race car for the road. James Dean drove

one- the rest is history. Much smaller than a Boxster, but obviously the retro-design

influence. Max Hoffman named the car the Spyder.

3) 1956 Speedster - Carrera GS option, Red. Type 547 four-cam engine option

gave the car 110hp. Max Hoffman did it again. He wanted a car to compete with the

Jaguars of the time, and persuaded Porsche management in 1953 to bring in a cheaper

convertible priced less than the Jags. They chopped the windshield and stripped the car

a bit and named it the Speedster.

4) 1965 904/6 Carrera GTS – Silver. These fiberglass Dino-Ferrari looking

coupes with the 901/20 6-cylinder engine are beautiful from all viewing angles. Hans

Tomala designed this car under the guidance of Butzi Porsche for FIA Group 3 GT class.

Like most GT cars of their era, these were saleable street-legal vehicles produced with

racing homologation in mind. Hey, when your name is Butzi, you’d better produce

some cool cars.

5) 1976 Type 934 – White. A street legal 934, produced as the ultimate development

of the 930 of the time. Besides Group 4 FIA racing, these cars competed in the

Trans-Am in the US in 1977. This car was based on the 1976 Turbo-Carrera with a

three-liter engine producing 485 hp and a body with wide fender flares front and rear.

6) 1988 959 – Silver. Computer-controlled four-wheel drive. Twinturbocharged,

450 horsepower. Adjustable speed-dependent ride-height. Never

allowed to be imported into the US until recently, this car was successful in Porsche’s

rally program and is still an exotic work of art, mechanically and visually.

7) 2002 GT2 – Midnight Blue Metallic. A modern classic. Where can you get this

kind of performance and looks with A/C, stereo, and power everything?

8) 1973 917/30 – Sunoco Can-Am car driven by Mark Donohue for Penske

racing. In it’s day it was faster than Formula 1 cars. It dominated the series, but this was

the last car produced for the last unlimited racing class. 1100 horsepower.

9) 1970 917K – #2 Gulf blue with orange. John Wyer’s team. If you’ve ever

watched the movie LeMans, you know what I’m talking about. If not, rent the movie!

Pedro Rodriguez drove the car that year. Won Daytona, but not LeMans.

10) 1975 RSR - #59 Brumos driven by Peter Gregg and Hurley Haywood. Option

M491 from the factory gave you an RSR. They won the Camel GT series that year. Also

won in SCCA Trans-Am. Brumos and Vasek-Polak were the most heavily involved

dealers in racing through the 70s and 80s. In the 1990s Champion Motors in South

Florida stepped up as a heavily involved dealer.

11) 1978 935/78 – “Moby Dick.” The 935 designation allowed the production

based 934 cars to evolve into “silhouette” racers in 1975 for FIA Group 5 world sports

car racing. These 911 derivatives had to look like production cars but not only could

they have tube-frame chassis; they could also add wild aerodynamic aids.

12) 1981 936-003 - #11, LeMans winner driven by Bell and Ickx. This was an

open cockpit car, with 917 parts, and the type 935/75 engine- taken from the Indy-car

project. 2.65 liters – 620 hp, 1250 lbs.

13) 1983 956 - #3 Rothmans, LeMans winner driven by Holbert, Haywood, and

Schuppan. The 956 and it’s long wheelbase brother the 962 (IMSA) were the most

successful sports cars of all-time in terms of number of overall wins in endurance races

and their ability to be sold by the factory to numerous private entrants. The departed

Al Holbert with his Lowenbrau-sponsored 962 was the perennial IMSA winner in the

1980s.

14) 1998 GT1 - #26, LeMans winner driven by McNish, Aiello and Ortelli. Last

of the FIA GT1 class endurance racecars. They came to the US at Sebring in 1998.

15) 2002 GT3 - #66, The Racers Group. GT class winner last year at Daytona,

Lemans, and a top-5 finish at Sebring. Like the 962, a factory end-user racecar sold to

dozens of privateer teams.

You can find pictures and read about these cars on the web, or in several

excellent Porsche history books available at Amazon, Classic Motor books, etc. I

hope this list spurs your own favorites and don’t forget to drop me a list of the

Porsches you favor. I can think of 5-10 more I’d list. Till next month, then…

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Editor

Are you ready for the Time Trial and

Autocross season? I know I am! By

the time you read this, we will have

already had our first Time Trial and Autocross

weekend at Mineral Wells. I’m hearing that

these driving events are expected to fill quickly

this year, so you'd better register soon if you

would like to further sharpen your handling and

course navigation skills.

We are also quickly approaching our next Drivers Education

event to be held at Texas Motor Speedway during our annual

Club Race in May. This particular DE is open to all blue-solo

and above drivers who have participated in previous DEs. For

more information about this event, see page 13 of this issue. The

application to participate in the DE can be found on page 23.

you thought was possible. You will also be exhausted after driving

at your limit for an entire weekend. You can find more information

about the June DE in the ad below and on the Maverick Region

website www.pca.org/mav . Follow the

"Drivers Education" link for information, dates, and enrollment

application forms. The application deadline for the June DE will

be in *early* May. I need to stress how important it will be to get

your application postmarked on the deadline date to get into this

event, it fills up VERY quickly.

Lastly, I want to thank all who helped write articles, build

event ad graphics, and help gather articles and pictures. Thanks

to you, this issue is packed full of great reading!

The Maverick Region’s next instructional event will be the

June MotorSport Ranch Drivers Education. Unlike the Club Race

DE, the June DE is open to ALL members who would like the

opportunity to "learn the line" at MotorSport Ranch’s 1.7 mile,

11-turn road course. If you have never been on the track at MSR,

you should seize this opportunity to explore your car’s handling

limits. Instructors will be available for all students. I encourage

you to get out there and give it a try. You will have more fun than

by Mimi Spreen

The Board Meeting was held on Tuesday, March 4,

2003 at the home of Lisa and Mark Steele and, of

course, Cindy.

Attendees: Lisa and Mark Steele, Michael

Wingfield, Keith Olcha, Joel Nannis, Wendy and

Jasmine Shoffit, Cody Sears, Noby Takahashi, Lanean

Hughes, Mimi Spreen, Dennis Chamberlain, Bob

Knight and Dee Lersch.

The meeting started at 7:04 pm with Round the Room.

Lanean Hughes - DE applications went out this week. Seven Club

Racers from Kansas will be at the event.

Michael Wingfield - The DE went well. There were 148 in attendance,

including instructors. Water on the track caused problems for

some. We're now ramping up for the next DE.

Joel Nannis - Membership is up, oh and by the way, Happy Birthday

to Joel on Thursday!!

Noby Takahashi - Insurance paperwork ok for upcoming events.

Needs to contact Ted Glover to get specifics on upcoming tours to

complete insurance.

Wendy Shoffit - Intro to Autocross and Ladies Autocross School went

well, the weekend netted a profit. About 34 students for the March 8th

Autocross and about 1/3 to 1/2 of the students carried over from the

previous school. Applications for June DE will be on line next week.

Slipstream will be late this month. We all need to follow through with our

commitments to write articles, etc in a timely manner to help Matt Platts.

Keith Olcha - The next three Board meetings, April, May and June

will be held at Keith's house to help prevent any confusion.

Cody Sears - The Intro to AX and the Ladies AX practice sections

used the same distances between cones in the slalom, same radius in the

skid pad, etc. as were used in the actual courses the students drove. The

consistency helped the students quite a bit as they could used what they

learned from the individual sections.

Dennis Chamberlain - The Happy Hour at Sherlocks had about 43

people and 5 of those were new members. Dennis discussed the Mentor

program and agreed to start a temporary program of pairing new

members with old members for several events and see how it works.

Dee Lersch - Contest to come up with new slogan on T-shirts netted

5 suggestions and we chose a winner. It will be announced with the

artwork shortly. The Goody Store sold it's last grill badges and in order to

get new ones made without the Porsche emblem, it would have to be

re-tooled which raises the cost quite a bit. Lee agreed to email Bob Miller,

at National regarding this issue and report back to the Board.

Bob Knight - He has received the money from the DE. We made

money at the Dinner Social. The Maverick Region tax return has been

completed and signed by Keith, so Bob will mail it off.

Motion to adjourn was made at 8:15 and seconded. Motion

approved. The next meeting will be at Keith Olcha’s house on Tuesday,

April 8th. Food will be served at 6:30, the Board Meeting will start at 7:00.

Happy Hour at Sherlock’s Baker Street Pub

by Jean Frick

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain, Tinker

Edwards, and Mark Gluck

As new Maverick Region members,

we were anxious to attend our

first Happy Hour. We had

chatted with Dennis Chamberlain

online, but I was a bit surprised when

he asked me to write an article about

the event for Slipstream.

Let me introduce you to the

Fricks. My husband Dave is a retired

engineer from Lockheed Martin, who

owned a 1955 356 Speedster (or did it own him?). With a growing

family, he had to replace his dream car with a Chevy, and he has

wanted another Porsche ever since.

Jean and Dave Frick

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain

I am a retired teacher and symphony musician (violin) and

very right-brained. Although we are an unlikely couple, we

married on Groundhog Day 2000, and we have recently settled

in an apartment home in Fort Worth. Dave has finally realized

his dream and will complete his first childhood with his special

order Porsche 986 Boxster, which we picked up in Plano on

February 7, 2003.

The Briggs and Norwoods

All of this is to tell you how exciting it has been to meet so

many of you, and how warmly we were welcomed into the group.

There must have been nearly fifty members there, standing around

discussing the fine points of their Porsches and the upcoming

MRPCA events. It was like a live version of the Yahoo E mail

board. We were introduced to a number of members, and others

came up to introduce themselves to us. A very friendly bunch!

One thing nearly everyone commented on was our MR

nametags, which we ordered at the new members party on January

9th. Fortunately, they arrived soon enough to wear to Happy

Hour. Even the rainy weather and a 102 mile round trip from SW

Fort Worth failed to dampen our enthusiasm for new friends and

a lively evening. (Being from Cowtown, and not familiar with the

tollway, we managed to get into a toll tag lane as we exited at Belt

Line. With no receptacle for our cash, we went on through…

so Dave spent a $ .37 stamp to mail in his check for $ .45. Wonder

how often that happens?).

Hopefully we will arrive at the April Happy Hour (at Malibu

Speed Zone at I35 and Walnut Hill Lane) without a similar

incident. In the meantime, we hope to see you at the DE’s in

Cresson, about 15 miles south of our apartment, or on one of the

many tours.

Zims Swap Meet

by David Mock

The first Maverick swap meet of 2003 at Zims has come and

gone. A special thank you to Al Zim for his hospitality in

providing the space and necessary needs to make such an

event possible. I also want to thank all of you who braved the

slightly uncomfortable cold weather. And while the sun never

showed up, a lot of you Porsche enthusiasts did. This fact was obvious

by how fast the coffee and donuts flew off the table inside Zims.

There were familiar and new faces there and the entire concrete

slab was full. I was told by one of them that this fact constitutes a

“successful swap meet”. The mood was great and the “deals” were

to be had. I know plenty of us ran home with our treasures, either

from venders, or the 15 percent off retail buys from Zims.

Most of us probably spent the rest of the weekend playing with

our hobbies and/or obsessions. Until next time (October maybe),

keep turning those wrenches.

Autocross 102

by Jessica Brown

Photo by Matt Platts

As a sophomore in high school, I realize that years have flown

by, and I can finally drive! This is a very exciting time,

almost even scary. In the world we live in, there are some

really bad drivers. Therefore, safety and knowing how to handle

your car are essential.

I recently attended the Autocross 102 school, which was my

second driving event. This simple, eight hour course helps you to

find your car’s ‘limits’. Out there we push our cars as hard as they

will go and we end up in situations (i.e. spinning out) that you

could face on your daily drive to work. We practice on skid pads,

which are designed to help you to spin, so that you can learn how

to handle one when it occurs. There are braking exercises that

let you find out how fast you car will really stop in worst case

scenarios. The last of the exercises we do is the slalom. There are

three different types of these: one of equal distance, one of

increasing distance which allows you to pick up speed as you go

through, and one of decreasing distance which forces you to slow

down as you move through it.

I was talking to one of my friends the other day and she

mentioned to me that she was recovering from a wreck. As any

friend would, I asked her if she was ok and she proceeded to tell

me what happened. At the time, she had only had her license for

five days, so I am sure that she was a little bit on the nervous side.

She was driving home in her mom’s van by herself and she

encountered a box on the road. As she swerved to miss the box,

she found herself in gravel going too fast. Naturally, she spun out.

She told me that she “tried to find the brakes, but pushed the gas

instead.” This only made things worse. As she tried to find the

...out there we push our cars as hard as they

will go...

brake pedal again, she saw “something blue” in front of her. She

then found the brakes and slammed on them, but she was too late

and she ran into a blue vehicle. She went to the hospital and

luckily only ended up with bruised ribs and a sore body. After she

told me her story, I told her about the driving courses I had been

taking. I told her that we spin out on purpose so that we can

learn how to control it when it happens unexpectedly with other

cars on the road. I know that if I had been driving instead of her,

I would have been able to handle my car much better. I, more

than likely, would have just come out of that a little ‘shook up’

instead of with a sore body and a wrecked car.

Although these autocross schools are fun, it is not just

playtime out there. You do learn a whole lot about your car and

how to handle it. Even if racing is not something you want to

pursue, like myself, I still highly recommend attending a few of

these schools; especially if you are a new driver. Even if you get

to the school and have absolutely no fun driving, you will love the

social aspect of it. The people there are amazing! My instructor,

Jan Mayo, is not only a wonderful, caring person, she is an awesome

driver! She has won the national Parade race a couple of times, so

she has an abundance of experience. Thank you, Jan, for being

patient with me. I really appreciate it. Thanks to all of the instructors

and everyone else who was involved who gave up their weekend

to come out there. It could not have happened without you!

Time Trial 103

By Alex Cobb

When I first got my silver ‘78 911 Targa about six months

ago, I was dying to take it to a driving event, as I had never been

to one. That was one of the main purposes I had in mind for the

911, when I bought it, being that is already setup for that purpose

with all the goodies from roll cage to race seats to a nice, loud

exhaust. My first event was the weekend of Time Trials 5 and 6,

and was exactly a week after getting the car from Austin. I was

hooked before the event even started, and had a blast over that

weekend, but afterwards it was clear the biggest thing I needed

was more seat time and instruction before the next season of time

trials began. With that in mind I anxiously counted the days to

each DE and then to Autocross 102 and Time Trials 103, as I knew

they would be an excellent place to continue to learn how to drive

my 911.

speeding along at about 95 for fear I will be late and primarily

not wanting to miss Wendy Shoffit’s stentorian shout of

“DRRIIIVVVEEERRRRSSS MEETTTIIIINNNGGG!!!!!!” (think

Frau Farbissina from Austin Powers, except with a Texas accent

rather than a German one). All of the sudden as I am happily

cruising, I hear this vicious vibrating noise coming from the back

of the car. I pull over to the shoulder quickly and get out of the

car to see the rear tire is flat - pick you favorite expletive. I didn’t

have a lot of room in the car with all my gear so of course

I decided not to take the spare tire. This decision was also

motivated by issues of weight reduction as the car clearly would

be much lighter without that spare with the heavy, non-forged

rim, these things being crucial for the trip to Mineral Wells. I

did have a can of Fix-A-Flat, but the fact I could put my hand

...the instructors drove and rode in student’s

cars to provide instruction...

Alex Cobb rushes toward the finish line

Beep, beep, beep, beep… the furor from the alarm clock

erupted much too early that morning, 6:15 to be exact. I know

that is late for some of you out there, but at age 22, I am trying to

kick the college sleep habits, so therefore if it is still dark outside

when I wake up that is considered too early! After packing up the

car, I was headed off and couldn’t wait to get there. Driving

along, I realized I had forgotten to get the new brake pads I

bought, as mine were running thin, and thought I might have to

change them after Saturday’s event (I was staying in Mineral

Wells that night so as to not have to get up so early). Of course I

am then running late after I head back to the house to get them.

Finally, I have everything, and am headed west on 820,

through the sidewall seemed to imply that fix wouldn’t work.

As I am about to call someone, namely my parents, to

bring the spare tire from my garage, thinking I will miss this

whole day by the time everything is taken care of, I look up to

see a black 911 Carrera pull up behind me! Then miraculously,

Rick Randall steps out, and after seeing I have a flat, informs

me he has two extra tires! Fortuitously, he was also running

late, saw my car, and just “happened” to have two spare Fuchs

with tires. We got the tire mounted and headed on to Mineral

Wells, and still made it in time to hear Wendy call everyone

together for the driver’s meeting.

Now perhaps I should move on to what actually happened

at the track that weekend rather than my arduous journey

there. The morning of each day consisted of exercises in

preparation for each afternoon, which would be a timed

autocross on Saturday, and a time trial on Sunday. Sunday was

definitely my favorite of the two as the course was longer with

higher speeds, and there was more track time. Since the time

trial class is what I am supposed to be writing about, I will

stick to that day. The morning began with exercises that were

extremely beneficial as they prepared us for the afternoon’s

time trial. The afternoon course was basically split in half to

allow two smaller courses that became the exercises.

Instructors were assigned to students, with Noby Takahashi as

my instructor. The instructors drove and rode in student’s cars

Time Trial 103 (continued)

to provide instruction much like in Driver’s Education events.

After taking many laps through the exercises, I was beginning

to get a good feel of how to negotiate those sections of the

course, and was definitely looking forward to putting the

whole thing together after lunch and run Time Trial Course 1

(This just happens to be the same course that will be run at the

first time trial of the year coming up on March 29th. Some of

you veterans may need to watch your whaletails, as us newbies

got some good practice in on this course setup…). The course

was really a blast, with the best section being the exit from a

long 180-degree right-hander going into the two main

straights, which are linked together by a fast sweeper. This

combination allowed many drivers to go full throttle from the

right-hander all the way into the braking zone before the

hairpin at the end of the back straight, which is a long distance

for those of you who have never been out there. Personally, I

hit higher speeds here than at the Motorsport Ranch DE,

although much of the increased speed could be attributed to

the fact that was my first DE there and I “hopefully” have

improved since then.

The format for the afternoon was alternating between

working a corner with your instructor while the first group

drove and then switch roles. After working our corner we were

ready to drive, and Noby, my instructor would be taking the

hot laps first to “show me the course”. Noby is a talented and

Photo by Dave Frick

experienced driver, and has a Boxster S that he tracks.

However, the Boxster S is quite different from my 911 with its

not so slick-shifting 915 gearbox. It also had Rick’s tires on

the rear, which had seen better days, making for lots of

oversteering fun. With Noby at the wheel it was a wild ride to

say the least. While he put the car around the track a quick

pace we also had two spins, including a spectacular one on the

last lap right after crossing start-finish even taking out a cone,

and dragging it under the car in the process. Needless to say,

Noby has taken quite a ribbing from just about everyone,

18


especially the 911 drivers, such as Eric Erz, whose weekend

spins were way into the double digits.

After this I was definitely inspired, and so we traded places

and joined the grid. James Shoffit, who was working grid

amongst many other jobs, waved us off. As I became familiar

with the course we gradually picked up speed, and were

having an incredible time. We finished and checked the lap

times. I had dropped a little each lap so I was pleased, but

knew there was still more time to be eliminated upon the next

time out. Later on, after corner working, I went out again, this

time once with Noby, and then solo. Going out solo was a lot

of fun, although it was a little scary too. I no longer had Noby

saying “easy, easy…” when I came in to a turn a little to hot, as

the training wheels were now off, the other benefit was that the

car was quite a bit lighter without Noby in there – its all about

the weight reduction, you know. I had some good laps and

flirted with the edge several times. I nearly spun the car in

several places as I pushed it bit too hard at times, but luckily

all I had learned about car control over the weekend allowed

me to recover and avoid any standing ovations for pirouettes.

It was a great weekend, and I learned so much and had

a terrific time. It was an effective school that ran seamlessly

due to the excellent coordination and execution by all who

volunteered their weekend to help teach us how to better drive

our cars. Many thanks go out to all who assisted in any way or

fashion. We are all continuous indebted to you as each event

comes to a close. Anyone who has never been out to Mineral

Wells should certainly consider coming for an event. It is a

perfect place to learn, as there is no real risk of damaging your

car in the “unlikely” event you ever should spin. As far as

myself, with every event I am even more shamelessly addicted

to tracking the car. The intoxicating sound of that flat six

roaring at 6500 RPMs, while drifting towards the track edge is

an experience unrivaled. I can’t wait until the first time trial.

Dinner Social at Dos Gringos

by Mimi Spreen

My goals in finding a place for the March Dinner Social,

was to #1 find a restaurant in Ft. Worth, #2 find a

restaurant that had a separate or private room that

could accommodate up to 60 people, and #3 well, I don't

remember what #3 was, but I'm sure it was pretty important.

If any of you have tried to find a restaurant that can

accommodate 40-60 people on a Saturday night in a separate

or private room, you have some idea of what I was faced with.

Add to that the fact that I don't know the Ft. Worth area at

all, and you can see the dilemma I was in. Out came the Ft.

Worth phone book and I let my fingers do the walking.

When I got to the "D's" in the phone book, I called Dos

Gringos and asked my usual questions and to my surprise,

they had a private room that will hold up to 50 and it wasn't

booked for the night in question, Saturday, March 1st.

I booked it over the phone and quickly emailed Bob Knight to

send the deposit check, so we wouldn't lose the place. As it

turned out, this was a pretty good location, close to the Ft.

Worth Zoo, The Kimball Museum and other museums and

...We actually weren’t the only car club there

that night...

pretty easy to find, even for me (except I received directions

from an employee at Dos Gringos that were incorrect and

wound up being almost the last person to arrive)

Since the RSVP's come through me, I knew who was

coming, but as usual, we had at least 6 people show up who

didn't RSVP which made the room a little tight, but we set

up an extra table, found some more chairs and were ready

without too much effort. There wasn't a "program" we had to

follow and that allowed everyone to mix and mingle and talk

to some members we haven't seen in years.

The food and drinks were good and it turned out to be a

really great place. I'll be sure to keep Dos Gringos in my file.

We actually weren't the only car club there that night. I saw

at least 2 other car clubs sitting at large tables in the main part

of the restaurant, so I guess it's a pretty popular place to have

dinner socials.

Mimi jots down everyone’s food preferences

Our next Dinner Social is the always popular "May at

Mayo's" and we will be dining on Babe’s Chicken. Check out

the ad below for all the particulars, date, time, price and the

always important RSVP deadline. If I don't receive your

RSVP by the deadline, not only does the price go from $15 to

$20, but you have to wait until everyone else gets their food,

before you can get yours.

Hope to see everyone at Mayo's. Hey, Ed, how many people

can your shop hold?

National Concours Judges Seminar

by Ron Knight

On Sunday, March 2, untold numbers of Porsche enthusiasts

braved the snowy roads of Denver Colorado to participate in

the PCA National Concours Judges Seminar held at Prestige

Imports in Littleton. It was a true thrill to find other Porsche owners

that are as enthusiastic (okay, fanatical) about clean Porsche motorcars

as I am. As a relative newbie to PCA and the Maverick Region PCA

I was wondering where the concours enthusiasts were. I’ve met plenty

of MR PCA track enthusiasts, but hadn’t yet stumbled onto the MR

PCA concours buffs.

Locating the PCA National Concours Judges Seminar letter on

the web I signed up and made the trek to Denver. It was a wonderful

experience! The event was co-hosted by the Rocky Mountain and

Alpine Regions, with Zone 9 Representative, Kathy Frick, leading the

...it was easy to learn from our three instructor

judges who have many years experience judging...

charge. Kathy and her event staff had ensured that accommodations,

arrangements and seminar were totally first class. As would be

expected, the majority of attendees were seasoned Porsche Concours

d’Elegance participants and judges. While the preponderance of

attendees were from Colorado and neighboring states, there were

attendees from Maryland, Virginia, and two Texans: PCA veteran

Willie Wilson from El Paso and yours truly from MR PCA.

The facility at Prestige Import was ideal for the seminar since

it was able to house 12 Porsches in the enclosed high bay where we

could conduct mock concours judging over the course of the day.

The Porsches brought in for the seminar included a pristine 356, a

914, a 911E, a 912, a 928, a 968 S2, 911 C2 Cab, a 1997 911 Turbo

S (WOW), a 1998 Boxster, and a 911 Targa. It was worth the trip

just to see these beautiful Porsches!

The 6 hour seminar began with a concours tutorial presented

by Dennis Frick (a 20+ year concours veteran from Harrisburg,

PA), followed by a Q&A session where neophytes such as I could

ask questions. I learned of the three groups: Preparation,

Restoration and Preservation and the Divisions, Classes and rules

associated with each. The attendees then divided into the three

groups (Preparation, Restoration and Preservation), for which a

panel of three accredited national judges had been selected as lead

instructors for hands on training. I participated in the Preparation,

or “search for dirt”, group that featured Bob Gale, Willie Wilson

and Paul Gilbreath as the Preparation Group Instructor Judges.

Following instruction on the nuances of Preparation Group

Concours d’Elegance judging, we divided into two teams for actual

concours judging of Porsches that were on site for this event. Our

Group worked with Jerry Medina’s 1998 Boxster and with a 1997

Twin Turbo S. The attached photo shows part of our group around

Jerry’s Boxster. We conducted timed concours judging of the two cars;

it is amazing how swiftly 5 minutes passes when you are judging and

filling out the judging sheets. When our timed judging was over

our instructor judges critiqued our judging sheets, providing feedback

and instruction for improvement of our techniques. It was

easy to learn from our three instructor judges who have many years

experience judging at Porsche Parades and at regional events.

Later, after lunch, we reassembled as Dennis Frick led a review

of judging techniques. At the conclusion of the seminar I and my

fellow attendees were awarded our PCA PORSCHE Concours

d’Elegance National Judge pin, certifying that we had successfully

passed our training. In retrospect it was a great experience,

especially meeting such fine fellow Porsche enthusiasts such as

Jerry Medina, Bob Gale, and Alex Illornete. I can hardly wait for

our 2004 Parade Concours d’Elegance on July 5th in beautiful

Fort Worth as well as the next MR PCA Concours or Shine &

Show event!
