Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

Ireally enjoyed looking at the Porsche

tractors at Parade ’04 in Fort Worth this past

July. It is really amazing to think that the

Porsche family has been responsible for such a

collection of mechanical appliances ranging

from tractors to military tanks, from air-cooled

aircraft engines to the VW Beetle, and from the

first 356 to the new 997 and all the race cars

along the way too. I also never realized how

much engineering design and consulting work

Porsche did. Most enthusiasts will remember that Porsche was

responsible for designing and fabricating much of that original

Swabian muscle car from Mercedes, the first 500E. Since then,

Mercedes has gone the AMG route, but whom did they call on

first – Porsche. Porsche was also behind the TAG McLaren

Formula One cars of the 1980’s.

I’m constantly amazed at how many older Porsches

(20-30-40 years old) are running well, and in the hands of

enthusiasts. They’re not cheap, but you don’t have to be rich to

own a 20 year-old 3.2 liter Carrera. You can buy one for under

$20,000, and for an operating budget of $600-$700 (not

including gas and insurance) per year it can be a daily drivercheaper

if you do most of the work yourself. I drive my

Boxster daily, and when I’m coming home late at night from

the airport, and there are few folks on the road, I love driving

... I’m constantly amazed at how many older

Porsches (20-30 years) are running well ...

fast with the top down and the feel of the best steering in the

world. I’ve owned a 3.2 Carrera, so I know it feels just as good.

As a matter of fact, I like the sound of the air-cooled flat six

better than the water-cooled Boxer in the Boxster. By the way,

Porsche flat (horizontally opposed) 6-cylinder engines (not

the Cayenne S eight-cylinder, or the Cayenne’s Audi-derived

six) are called Boxer engines named for the jabbing punches

thrown by a fighter. Interestingly the famous Ferrari 512

Berlinetta Boxer is so named because it is a fast-back

(Berlinetta) with a flat-12 (horizontally-opposed cylinders)

engine.

I hope many of you will be coming to Founder’s Day on

Friday, November 12th at the Hackberry Creek Country Club.

It will be really special this year with vocal and musical

entertainment. It will be my last Founder’s Day as region

President, so I’m hoping to go out with a blast. Speaking of

blasts- a couple of years ago I got into collecting and racing

Photo by Keith Olcha

1/32 scale slot cars at home. There is a whole world out there

now that resembles the slot-car hobby of the 1960s. We have

races and time-trials, and the technology and attention to

detail is awesome. The interesting thing for me is that I have

purchased every single car, piece of track, or accessory via

eBay. While not a very expensive hobby, the cars can range

from $25-$50 at average retail, and their list price is even a bit

higher. Shrewd auction management can find these cars for

$10-20 used, and $25-$35 new (on ebay) if you are diligent.

Buying track used is the only way to go, as it is about half

price. Many of the items (cars, track, power supplies) are

interchangeable, and made outside the U.S. in England, Spain,

and Asia from companies called SCX, Scalextric, Ninco,

Carrera and various other boutique manufacturers. Carrera

makes the 1/32 slot car racing set that Porsche sells in their

boutique. Well, I’d better get back upstairs for my next slot-car

race. Till next month, then.

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Slipstream Editor

October turned out to be a very active month

for the Maverick Region. It started out with

a Club Race at Hallett that several

Mavericks attended – some racing, and some in

Club Race School. We were unable to come up with

an article or photos of that event in time for this

issue, but we hope to have some coverage in the

December edition. Following that, we had our last

“regular” Autocross/Time Trial weekend at Mineral

Wells, a Happy Hour at Speed Zone, a swap meet at Zims, a tour to

Arkansas, and a DE. Some of these events happened early enough in

the month to be covered in this issue, but you will have to wait until

next month’s Slipstream for the rest.

Charles Freeman’s technical series about restoring his early

911T is continued this month with part 3 of the series. I’ve received

quite a bit of feedback about Chuck’s project… it sounds like a hit!

Once Chuck is finished with his restoration (and gets tired of

writing!), we will be looking for another technical series. Plan

ahead if you are going to undertake a project and would consider

documenting it for the other Mavericks.

You will also find a few articles about events that took place

outside our region this month. Tracey Gross wrote an article about

her participation in Boxstoberfest 2004 in the Texas Hill Country,

you can check that out on page 22. Bill and Marilyn Stafford

attended the ALMS race at Road Atlanta and came back with a nice

article and some great photos, turn to page 26 for that.

Happy Hour at Bahama Breeze

The September 16

happy hour crowd

wasn’t particularly

large, but we drew

some interesting people,

including two visitors

from other regions –

Sandee Weiner from the

Northern New Jersey

Happy Hour Crew: Jay Easley, Region and Scott Vogan

Tinker Edwards and Dennis Chamberlain

from the Lone Star

Region. Actually, they

didn’t come all that way just for the happy hour (they were

in town on business), but it was good to talk to them and to

hear about what was going on in their respective regions.

Also attending for the first time was Howard Kimbrough

(993 Cab).

It was during this happy

hour that I finally figured

out how to capture a decent

photograph of Jeff Atkins. I

stood on a chair. Works

pretty well, wouldn’t you say?

Hope Shelter Update

by Bill Middleton

Yes folks, the Hope Project is alive and well – it didn’t go

away, it just got eclipsed for a short while by the hoopla

The Hope Team

of Parade! We have all been quietly busy doing the

background work, and things are ready to start happening in Lisa Huffaker Director of Hope Inc.

very visible ways!

Mark Gluck markgluck@yahoo.com

In the past few months, several important things have Lanean Hughes lhughes@fmstech.com

happened on the road to making a new Hope a reality. It was

Bill Middleton wrmiddleton@con-real.com

... the Hope Project is alive and well ...

Ron Colbert ron@exeltech.com

John Lersch deelersch@compuserve.com

discovered earlier in the year that the property on which Justin Hiegel jrhiegel@msn.com

Hope currently sits was not suitable for construction, so

an effort began in earnest to find another location. This has

culminated in the purchase of a NEW lot just two blocks up

the street from the current Hope

site that is an excellent location!

Conceptual drawings have

been in process for about 2

months now, and just recently the

final floor plan has been produced.

A preliminary set of drawings has

been sent to the City for review

and comments, and if there are no

major issues, full drawings for

permit will be produced shortly!

At this rate, it is fully expected

that the project should be ready to

go to permit within weeks! We

could see construction begin

before the end of the year!

At this time, what is most

needed is the STUFF that will

become the reality of Hope –

Linda Bambina bina@airmail.net

construction materials, skilled

trade labor, individuals who can

help with their time, talents, and

resources. Please contact any

Hope Team member for more

information on how you can help

build Hope!

Groundbreaking ceremony

will take place on Sunday,

December 19th at 2:00 pm. Please

come and support this great

project. Following the ceremony

will be a sharing of holiday treats

with the clients at Hope

Please contact a Hope Team

member if you have resources to

offer, or wish to be kept informed

of Hope activities.

Autocross #6

By Jerry Fleming

The day was like a San Francisco Sunday and the autocross

layout, thanks to Chuck Machala, was big, like Texas.

We’re talking Big-Big. It took the fastest driver of the day

88 seconds to tour the layout (We’ll talk more about that later).

We had a guest for the day as well. Ivan’s little cousin, Van was

in the area all day. Throughout the day, ominous looking clouds

hung around and a couple of times the track was dampened by

misty rain, but fortunately for the Sunday bunch we were, for

the most part, dry.

No. 1, Chuck Machala, started us off by welcoming the

visitors, and there were a bunch. He succinctly gave us the

rules for the day and wished us well. Enter Wendy Shoffit,

who stated that someone needed to volunteer to write an

article for Slipstream about the day’s event. Naturally every

hand went up. Hardly did the words get out of my mouth that

I wasn’t a righter, or is that writer? and guess who gets picked.

So, bear with me as I describe the events of the day.

Group B got the honor of showing us the way as they led

off. The track was long and spread out requiring seven groups

of corner workers scattered out almost across the entire paved

area. The first group of drivers found the track a bit wet, but

the course quickly dried and times began to immediately

improve as the groove was beaten into the track. The best

time turned in by Group B was Richard Diller with a 90.356

tour and several were closely bunched up behind. His very

modified 911 looked unbeatable.

Group A stepped up to the plate after about an hour and

the first of the Shoffits did their thing. James on his third run

nailed an 88.216 that stood up as the best time of the day.

Many of us were in excess of 100 seconds as we wound around

the course.

After lunch the mist started again and the first run group

experienced slicker conditions that held down times.

However, by their fourth and final run they were going well.

Cones took a beating for awhile until adjustments were made

as dictated by track conditions. By the second run group of

Group A things settled down and times continued to improve.

The second of the Shoffit clan had her turn when Group

A got underway. Wendy blasted her way to a 91.303 and beat

some of the big boys like #1, #66 and #519. Maybe the Shoffits

were on steroids or something because they just made child’s

play of the event and their times prove it. Congratulations to

James and Wendy.

Fun runs were held after the official autocross was completed.

First, thanks to the corner workers that stayed on

course and helped us out. I took my turn and got to ride with

one of the best drivers of the day and found out that I simply

wasn’t pushing down on the pedals hard enough or at the

right time. The ride really was revealing and it clearly showed

me what could be achieved by pushing the envelope. Back to

my car I went and I immediately shaved off almost three

seconds and that even included one screw-up. I was amazed.

What a great learning experience one ride in the Fun Run

event provided. Thanks, James.

It was a good day, a very good course and as always it was

good to see friends of the Porsche Club and to meet newcomers.

So ends another Autocross year out west at the Mineral

Ring.

As a first timer at a Porsche time trial event I did not

know exactly what to expect, but I am glad I made the

journey out to Mineral Wells. I started out the morning with

a few tests runs with my uncle, Cody Sears, to get myself

comfortable with the track. When the actual events got started

I was working first with my uncle in the grid area and learned

how and when to put cars on the track. Then, finally, it was

my time to run. I was nervous at first but got through it fine

thanks to my great instructor, Cody. Then I got to ride with

Mike Bridges in his blue Corvette. He ran a 75.944 with me

in the car, his best time of the day. Let me say it was quite a

ride. After that I hopped in the car with my uncle and picked

up a few more tricks of the trade when he ran a 78.192 in his

914. As the day went on I was more of a help in the grids now

that I knew what was going on, and my times quickened on

the track.

Overall the experience was great! I met a ton of great

people who were all extremely friendly and willing to help. If

you have ever thought about making it out to a time trial

event but never found a energy to go I highly recommend it.

You will not regret it!

Early 911 Restoration: No. 3

by Charles Freeman

Here we are deep into the teardown stage. This is kind of fun, being

a little destructive. Besides, it doesn’t take a lot of knowledge to

take something apart. Putting it back together is another issue. I

have removed paint from the body panels using chemical stripper and

sandpaper and was pleasantly surprised that only the driver’s door

appeared to have any damage. All of the other panels were quite straight.

There were some rust holes at the bottom edge of the door. A magnet

along the bottom edge didn’t pick this up in the inspection process. The

passenger fender had some rust damage on the bottom trailing edge just in

front of the door and a little along the edge next to the hood. All-in-all

pretty good for a 30 year old car. The rear license panel is the only body

panel I can see needing replacement.

At this point I work around the car removing components: lights,

trim, etc. It is amazing how many pieces make up a car. As I take all parts

off I pack them into plastic bags with the accompanying fasteners. I used a

marker on the bags but considering the amount of muddy grease on my

hands my handwriting is quite illegible. I guess that when the time comes

I will magically be able to read this mess. I place the baggies in boxes and

put them in the attic. I try to maintain similar components in a box, but

this is getting difficult. The number of boxes in my attic is astounding. I

have placed the fenders, front and rear bumpers, wheels, and just about

everything else in the attic. I hope the rafters will be able to support this

amount of weight.

Photo by Charles Freeman

This means that the car is quite unstable. As I pushed on the side of the car

it easily rocked about. Not a good situation while lying under the car

un-bolting components. I purchased two sets of 6-ton jack stands. These

provide sufficient support at the height needed to remove the engine. I

tagged all of the electrical connections with duct tape and labeled them

with a marker. I soon found out that the grease from my hands smeared

the lettering so I will have to guess as to where these go. Enough has been

written on how to remove a 911 engine/transmission so I won’t bore you

with that. Let’s just say it is a little challenging to balance the approximate

400 lbs of this assembly on the 4 inch pad of the floor jack. A great feeling

of accomplishment overwhelms me as I view the engine out of the car.

Such a thing of simplistic beauty, albeit quite greasy.

Photo by Charles Freeman

Almost everything is off of the car and I stand back and look. What

do I do next? I really hadn’t thought this entire process out and, as I will

find out, will have to revise my strategy as I work. Do I want a concours

car? A driver? Or something in-between? Those questions will be answered

for me soon enough. Since I am a scientist by trade, I truly believe

knowledge is power. So I do a lot of investigation into restoration,

rebuilding and so forth on the 911. What a perfect car for a do-it-yourself

restoration. An essentially unchanged automobile over 40 years. This is a

prime reason why I chose the 911, a huge level of aftermarket support. That

and I always wanted one. So in my mind I think my path is to make a high

quality driver. I will upgrade the car with the standard reliability

improvements; chain tensioners, oil cooler, etc. Then I will add performance

options not available on the production car. Things such as 2.2 E

pistons for increased compression and a significant power boost, E cams

for good mid-RPM performance, urethane bushings for improved

handling, and a killer paint job. My desire is to keep the entire cost of the

project below $20k. At least that is the plan.

My next plan of attack is to remove the engine and transmission.

Another advantage of the 911 is that the engine can be lowered out of the

car. Thus not requiring an engine hoist. I purchased an aluminum floor

jack that has a jacking height of 18 inches and that is barely enough to get

the engine out. I thought about purchasing a 3-ton steel jack at half the

price of the aluminum one but I could barely lift it. How much could a

hernia cost? I already have 2 sets of 2 ton jack stands. I soon found that

these are inadequate. When the car body is jacked up to gain clearance for

the engine drop the jack stands are at the last key-way on the extension.

While I am under the car dismantling things, I decide to remove all of

the brakes and suspension components, as well. I notice that my struts are

a red-orange color so I identify them as Koni’s. I feel pretty good about

that. It’s a pretty simple matter of unbolting items from under the car.

18


Upon removing the belly pan from the front of the car I notice some

holes close to the brake master cylinder. This could not be spotted on an

inspection because it required removal of a lot of components on the car

to see. Here comes the big wake-up call. So as I lie under the car I wonder

how to deal with these holes. I vacillate back and forth whether to fiberglass

over them or to patch with metal. Then I get the bright idea to scrape away

some of the undercoating around the damage. Lying under the car on a

nice fall day I found myself getting carried away and scraping more and

more. I have read about different techniques to remove undercoating.

I tried a grinder with knotted wire brush. It works great but I was

completely covered in little hairy fragments of undercoating. I was not

using a respirator doing this so a lot of it was in my ear, nose and

mouth…what fun! I then had the bright idea of using heat. So I got a

propane torch and went to town. I found the best technique was to move

the torch around in about a 6 inch square area until the undercoating had

a reddish glow and starting to smolder I could easily scrape it away with a

steel spatula. Again my enthusiasm got the best of me and I wasn’t using a

respirator. I paid for that mistake every night with a lot of coughing. You

would think being a chemist I would know better, huh? Let me just add

that this is highly dangerous and I removed all of the flammable materials

from my proximity while I was doing this. I worked at this for about 2

months on the floorpan. I then took the grinder and wire brush and

cleaned up the floorpan even more. It came out looking great but exposed

several problems I hadn’t detected in my inspection. Apparently water was

trapped around the pedal cluster area and was repaired by screwing a metal

patch in the area and applying body filler. Also, the damage around the

brake master cylinder was quite extensive and was in close proximity to the

rear mounting point for the front torsion bar cross-tube.

So now I am left with the prospect of what to do. I have found

replacement floorpans available in the aftermarket. Those of you who have

looked for these know that they are available in a L/R side or front/back

depending upon manufacturer. Unfortunately, none of these have the section

into the footwell area that I need.

Come back next time and find out what I decided to do.

End Of Summer Arkansas Tour

by Andy Miller

What could be better than our annual October 3-day

Porsche tour to Arkansas? Well, I guess adding a

second 3-day end of summer trip this year qualifies!

There are just so many great roads in Arkansas that we had to

do it!

Day 1: We departed from Einstein Brothers Bagels and

headed north on 121 to Bonham and our first fuel stop in

Paris. The weather was perfect...sunny and mild by Texas

standards. We had two first time tour participants. Judy and

Chris Kellner were in their newly purchased 1991 amethyst

C-2 Cabriolet. This car was literally driven by “the little old

lady on Sundays” and has only 30,000 miles on it. Also joining

us was Karen in her red Boxster and her friend, Joyce.

Lunch was at the Circle J Restaurant in Talihina, Oklahoma.

Talihina is the western most terminus of the Blue Ridge

Parkway rival, the Talihina Scenic Byway. After lunch, we

got into the great curves and twisties in Arkansas. We stayed

at the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs on Friday night and

gorged ourselves on the hotel’s Friday night seafood fest.

Day 3: It simply does not get any better than our drive

early Sunday morning down route 23 through the Ozark

National Forest to Booneville. There was almost no traffic,

a light fog was burning off, and the weather was great.

Lunch was at the beautiful Queen Wilhelmina Lodge,

which is on the Talihina Byway. We caught part of the

Wilhelmina Rod Run, which is an annual event at the park.

There were over two hundred custom street rods of all

types and colors! After lunch we drove the Talihina Byway

and made our way back home.

Thank you Ted and Bonnie for another great trip!

... It simply does not get any better ...

Day2: The weather reports for Saturday were ominous …

heavy rain all day. Ted Glover, our Tourmeister, assured us

we would have good weather and not to worry. Sure

enough, we were spared most of the day. We had the

ultimate thrill ride on what we have named the “Little

Dragon”. This is a new road that Ted has found. It is literally

one continuous set of curves, switch backs, off camber

turns, you name it…. this road has it all. We would tell you

the location but you will need to come on the next

Arkansas tour to experience it! Lunch was at the Cliff

House, which is about 8 miles south of Jasper on scenic

route 7. The food was delicious and the view of the Ozark

national forest was fantastic. After lunch, we drove route

123 en route to Eureka Springs. This road makes you think

you are driving in the Austrian Alps. Saturday night we

stayed at the Crescent Hotel & Spa. We were treated to a

gourmet dinner in the Crescent Hotel Conservatory. Bill

Coates entertained us with hilarious stories of his boating

misadventures on Lake Texoma.

Boxstoberfest 2004

by Tracey Gross

One Great Run, Two Hits and a Fan Belt!

The PCA Hill Country in conjunction with the Maverick

and Lone Star Regions hosted another Boxstoberfest on

the second weekend of September. And, for the second

year in a row there was no rain! Temperatures were in the

mid-eighties to the low-nineties for the whole weekend

under partly cloudy skies out in the Texas Hill Country.

Events kicked off with the traditional Friday night

social at the Auslander restaurant in scenic downtown

Fredericksburg. It was great to see some old friends and a

marvelous opportunity to meet new ones.

Saturday morning started off bright and early at 9:00

with the whole crew meeting behind the Fredericksburg

Courthouse. In addition to the 23 Boxsters who showed up,

we had visitations from four pristine 356's from the

Fredericksburg area, a white Carrerra, a Seal Gray 996

Cabriolet, a Cayenne S and a 944 Turbo. We had an hour or

so of time to meet our fellow Porsche owners, admire the

Boxsters and ooooh-aaahhh over the 356's.

... visitations from four pristine 356’s ...

By 10:45, the drivers' meeting was over and we were off

to Hunt for lunch. One of the 356's even went with us for

lunch (well, his heart was in the right place but the car

dropped a fan belt on the way, so he didn't quite make it)

and we were joined by a Nissan...er...ummm "Porsche 999

Prototype" piloted by one of the nicest guys out there.

Lunch was at the Hunt Country Store during which we

fended off a Miata group by sheer numbers :). After lunch,

we headed out on to Leakey, passing through Vanderpool,

Medina and Kerrville on the way back. We crossed the Frio,

Pedernales and Guadalupe river valleys, each time rising up

on to the surrounding escarpments for sweeping vistas of

the Hill Country.

While traversing the switchbacks between Medina and

Kerrville, two drivers heroically defended the rest of the

group from a rampaging guardrail on a decreasing radius

turn. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and the whole group

rallied around the drivers to make sure everyone got home.

Our motto was and is "No driver left behind!"

Saturday night was the big event with drinks at the very

cool Hanger Hotel Officer's Club followed by dinner at the

Cotton Gin restaurant. The food was excellent and a great

time was had by all.

Sunday, a small group of survivors gathered for breakfast

at the Airport Grill and started thinking about how

much fun next year is going to be!

Pre-staged... ready for launch!

September Drivers Education

by John Sandusky

The September DE at MSR, sponsored by Park Place

Porsche, was a great weekend. The event started early

with Maverick Region's annual instructor clinic on

Friday. This clinic had a special focus this year - Pete Tremper,

head of the national PCA DE committee, was in town to present

his clinic materials to the group. It made for a busy day

for everyone involved. Upon successful completion of the

clinic, our region instructors are now nationally approved,

and their names become part of the national PCA instructor

database. Quite a lot of material was covered in the clinic, and

those in attendance agreed it was very successful.

Congratulations to all of our region instructors.

... our region instructors are now

nationally approved ...

The DE itself started on Saturday, as usual, to beautiful

late summer weather. Full run groups enjoyed excellent

track conditions. The planets must be aligning or something,

because quite a few of us noticed the skill levels in

Green and Blue were way up for this event. The usual trains

in Green were almost non-existent. What was it? Was it the

driver's meeting in the morning got everyone started out

right? Interesting thought, but probably not. Hmmm - or

was it the instructor clinic and our new nationally approved

instructors? Don't know. But I, and quite a few others, hope

this progress continues. Green and Blue were rockin' all

weekend.

Sunday dawned with the potential for quite a treat.

Kirk Frederick, the GM at Park Place, was coming out for

the event on Sunday (since, of course, they work on

Saturday). And the plan was to bring a new 997 for himself

to drive. Well, unfortunately (or fortunately, however you

look at it!), the 997 was sold on Saturday, so Kirk had to settle

for just a 2004 C4S. Just a C4S. And he did enjoy the

event, along with Randall Johnson (Mr. Parts Manager),

Jimmy Hayes (Mr. Shop Foreman) and the rest of the Park

Place contingent. And we in Maverick Region thank them

for being involved in our events. Did I mention that he just

had to bring a C4S?

Photo by Matt Platts

Well, anyway, I am sure there are ample opportunities

for a 997 to show up at MSR in the future. And maybe a

chance for myself to drive one? You never know. Or maybe

a Carrera GT - I need to test drive one of those as well...

V10... horsepower... huge brakes... Sorry, for a second there

I drifted off. Come on out and join the fun - you never

know what might show up.

ALMS Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta

by Bill and Marilyn Stafford

In the 10 plus years since we’ve been to Road Atlanta, the changes that

have occurred are unbelievable. About the only thing that remains

the same is the Kudzu. The track is now as viewer friendly as any

I've seen and the people are the friendliest. From the addition of hillside

seating at turn 10 to the making of turn 5 (end of the esses) into a

family viewing area complete with jumbo-tron.

Race weekend had 60,000 plus people at the event (probably due

in no small way to the fact that neither Auburn or Georgia were

playing football on Saturday). It was great to see a large crowd at an

ALMS event again.

The Race - Surprise! The LMP1 Audi's were not on the starting

front row of the grid, but they did manage finish 1-2 with JJ Lehto

and Marco Werner in the #38 car beating out the #2 Champion Audi

of Johnny Herbert and Pierre Kaffner. In doing so, Audi clinched its

5th consecutive manufacturer's championship and the Champion

Team secured the title. James Weaver, driving the Dyson Lola #16,

managed to take the pole. Newcomer to the series was London based

Creation Autosportif LMP1 car #27 (Reynard DBA 035/Zytec). They

pulled off a surprise effort by qualifying in 2nd place on the front row.

Peterson Motorsports/White Lightening 911GT3 RSR Porsche of

Crain Stanton and David Murry finished third in GT. The Alex Job

Team has clinched the championship, but the driver championship is

yet to be decided at Laguna Seca.

Pit Rat notes: As always, these are scrounged from usually sober,

reliable sources, but like Grandma always said, you just never know…

- Dale Earnhardt Sr. was under a contract to drive for the ALMS

Factory Corvette Team when he died. As you might recall, he had

teamed with Andy Pilgrim at the 24 hours at Daytona in the Corvette

prior to the accident.

- Dale Earnhardt Jr. purportedly now has a contract to drive for

the ALMS Factory Corvette Team beginning in 2005. So I guess the

race at Infineon with team member Boris Said was a precursor to the

next level for him. A really far out rumor is that he will leave

NASCAR…but that sounds like a “trap” statement, and I really can’t

see that happening. Cubic money and all that, you know.

- Alex Job Racing may not race next year. The Porsche factory

... the Alex Job team has clinched the championship ...

Photo by Bill Stafford

The team was founded in 2002 and has being completing in Europe

and has completed 4 6-hour races there. Team owner, Michael

Jankowski, was concerned that the car would not be able to finish the

race. He was right. The first hours of the 10 hour or 1,000 km. race

featured a hot contest involving the prototypes. James Weaver driving

the Dyson #26 led much of the early part of the race, while the Audis’

mixed it up with the Creation #27 forcing them to run qualifying

speeds and subsequently melted their motor at lap 130. The Weaver

car had a gearbox problem and went behind the wall for repairs. One

by one, the LMP contenders encountered problems, leaving the race

to the Audis’ who still remain bulletproof.

Corvettes, of course, dominated the GTS class. Again, Corvette

brought in "special" drivers for the event. (Unfortunately Dale, Jr. was

not available). Max Papis and Jan Magnussen were brought in to help

the #3 and #4 cars who finished 1st and 2nd.

As usual the best race occurred in the GT class between the

Porsches. This time it was the 2 Alex Job 911GT3 RSR Porsches battling

for 1 and 2 the entire race. The #23 car driven by Timo

Bernhard, Jorg Bergmeister and Sascha Maussen narrowly beat the

#24 car driven by Romain Dumas, Marc Lieb and Wolf Henzler. The

The famous Road Atlanta esses.

decision to not have “direct involvement” with them has caused their

racing effort to be too expensive and they may just go back to selling

parts. They are the oldest surviving ALMS team and are racing for the

Championship this year. Too bad for the sport if it happens.

- The Krohn-Barbour Team (David Brabham/Tracy Krohn -

drivers) is apparently ending his relationship with Lamborghini and

will not race at Laguna Seca this year. Word is that the factory didn’t

come through with the racing development parts for the Murciélago

R-GT. But they were pretty while they lasted.

- Rob Dyson was instrumental in convincing the British based

Creation Team to participate in the Petit LeMans and upcoming

Laguna Seca races. He is also trying to convince them to compete in

the entire series next to add some much needed spice to the series.

(The Audi’s need competition).

- Keep those old race shirts. Recently a 1979 Dick Barbour, Paul

Newman race shirt sold on eBay for $1000. Dick Barbour gave the

new shirt (he says he has a garage full) to "a friend", who in turn sold

it.

Road Atlanta has 2 ALMS races next year, so take the family and

go enjoy Southern Hospitality and some really good racing.
