What a year 2004 was for our club.
Besides a Maverick Region activity
almost every week, the Porsche
Parade 2004 finally came upon us. It was a
great event and got rave reviews from the 600
attendees who immersed themselves in a
week-long Porsche love-fest during the week
of the fourth of July. Maverick Region was in
the spotlight of all of PCA and shone brightly. Even the
weather cooperated. I’d like to thank Jan Mayo and her entire
Parade team for putting on a great Parade and also for making
Maverick Region look good in the eyes of the rest of PCA.
As you may know, The Hope Shelter is our designated
Charity. It is a haven for the victims of spousal abuse. This
year a dedicated team of Maverick Members is bringing to
fruition the dream of seeing the ground break on a new home
for the Shelter. The old facility was neither large enough nor
repairable enough to continue in its current capacity. This is
a huge undertaking, but the results will be worth the effort.
... As a result, folks tend to concentrate on the
activities they like the best ...
I want to thank all of the 2004 activity and event chairs
for their efforts. If any one single person didn’t do each of
their jobs to the fullest, we wouldn’t be able to have so many
high-quality events that serve so many members. Guest
attendees from other car clubs praise our activities, and our
newsletter is the best of any North Texas enthusiast club.
I want to thank our sponsors, who without their support,
we wouldn’t have the number of events we do, the level of
service, or the attendance we get at them. Thank you all.
I want to thank my fellow executive committee: Noby
Takahashi – Vice President, Bob Knight – Treasurer, and
Mimi Spreen – Secretary for their support, help, and personal
commitment over the past two years to run the region.
Finally, I want to thank all of you for being members,
joining as new members, and supporting the club, our charity,
and our sponsors the way you have. I know at the end of
the day in the scheme of life- this is just a car club. But I love
Porsche cars- heck I love all kinds of cars- but I also love this
region and its members. In conclusion, this has been an exciting
two years to serve as your President and I thank you for
allowing me to perform this service for our club.
Maverick Region has grown very large over the years, and
while a nice thought, it’s rare to find many members who
engage in all the various activities and events the club offers.
As a result, folks tend to concentrate on the activities they like
the best. One of my goals during my tenure as President was
to continue building the club into those areas of excellence.
For example, I wanted the AX and TT group to offer lots of
events for their entrants and have the best equipment and
tools possible, and be profitable at the end of the year once all
expenses and upgrades were accounted for. That group has
achieved that this year as in years past! All of the disciplines-
Drivers Education, Tours, Club Racing, Happy Hours,
Socials- they all have strong followings, quality leadership,
and increased attendance. While many were the same individuals,
we attracted over 2000 people to all our events this
year, not including Parade ’04.

The activities of 2004 are finally winding
down, but there is still plenty to report
for this issue. Late October saw several
events for the Maverick Region, including our
first-ever October Drivers Education. The
event was sponsored by Boardwalk Porsche
and was a big hit. I was lucky enough to squeeze
in to my run-group ay the last minute, and I’m
glad I did, it was the most fun that I’ve had at a
DE in a while. I got some great instruction and learned several
things that I can continue to work on in February at our next
DE. You can read more about the DE in Ben Hartsell’s
article on page 16.
Another popular October event was the Charity
Autocross held at the Texas Motor Speedway “bus lot”. There
was a fantastic turnout and a challanging themed course.
Marcus Booth’s article on pages 14-15 captures the fun,
and there’s even a course map so you can see some of the
“trickery” that course designer Chuck Machala dreamed up.
I would like to make a correction to the Boxstoberfest
article that we ran in the November issue. That article was
actually written by Ted Pietrzak from the Hill Country Region.
I had accidentally given credit to Tracey Gross, but Tracey does
deserve credit for attending the event and being the conduit
that brought this article and it’s photos to us to enjoy. Either
way, everyone had fun and they hope that more Mavericks can
join them next year for the annual event.
Finally, this issue of Slipstream will be my last as Editor. In
the two years that have passed since I took over from previous
editor, Wendy Shoffit, I have learned a lot about the club and
everyone involved. Putting together this publication each

The November Board meeting was held on
Tuesday, November 9th at Bobby Archer’s
Motorsports/German Motor Works on
Henderson Street in Fort Worth.
Attendees: Keith Olcha, Bob Knight, Joel
Nannis, Lanean Hughes, Rocky Johnson, Joe
McGlohen, Mike Brodigan, Matt Platts, Mimi
Spreen, Charlie and Teri Davis, Bill Dawson,
John Sandusky, and Wendy Shoffit.
The meeting was called to order at 6:50pm.
Keith Olcha - Attendance is very low for Founders Day.
Will send out an email saying Thursday is deadline. Two DE
seats will be offered as a silent auction item, one novice and one
advanced. The holiday party is at TMS on 12/12 and sponsored
by RUF. The new member party is on 1/16.
Matt Platts - Waiting for various articles for the December
issue of Slipstream.
John Sandusky - Waiting for an ad from Autobahn and
waiting for MSR.
month can be a challange; waiting for content, photos, tracking
people down who promised to do things, gathering
tid-bits of information that will be helpful to the region, etc,
but it’s been worth it. There’s a lot of time and work involved
with putting each issue together, but I get a great amount of
satisfaction each month when it’s done.
I am also thankful for the help that I have received from
many people, starting with everyone who writes articles for us.
Without these event articles, Slipstream wouldn’t have much
to say... let’s keep those articles coming in! And without the
photography that’s provided by our regular photographers,
the articles would be pretty boring, so a big thanks to everyone
who has helped us there. The other main area that I get help
every month is from the rest of the Slipstream “staff” that
includes event ad design that was handled for the majority of
my tenure by Teri Davis and has now been taken over by
Dennis Chamberlain, proofreading by Wendy Shoffit and Jan
Mayo, and final layout touch-ups and pre-production
assistance by Kevin Hardison. Without all of these people’s
help each month, Slipstream simply wouldn’t be possible.
The editor position for 2005 will be filled by a relatively
new member, Michael Holloway. Michael’s background
includes experience with various desktop publishing software,
and he’s excited to get started. Several of us “old-timers” will
be hanging around to help out, effectively expanding the
Slipstream staff while trying to spread out some of the work
that has historically been placed on the Editor. Wendy Shoffit
will become the Content Editor, I will be staying around as the
Photo Editor, and Dennis, Jan, and Kevin will continue doing
what they do so well for us. This Editorial staff “expansion” has
been needed for a while, and I expect that will continue to
happen as Slipstream moves farther into the future.
Charlie Davis - Plans on doing some work on Truxster: 1)
hydrolic lift needs to be lowered and 2) mount jacks on corners
to keep steady when parked.
Joel Nannis - Thinks we have new members, but is not getting
information from National on a regular basis.
Mike Brodigan - We have ads.
Lanean - Ground breaking for Hope project will be on
12/19 at 2:00, everyone is invited to attend (more details on
page 10 - Ed). Kroger is providing us with skilled labor as their
donation from the facilities division.
Bob Knight - We have money
Wendy Shoffit - Asked if anyone is interested in having
more fun events. Charity AX had about 46 attendees and
brought in about $1500. After track fees are deducted, the balance
goes to Hope Shelter. People also made extra donations
for Hope. Overall throughout the year TT and AX made a profit.
Motion made to adjourn the meeting at 8:23, seconded

There comes a weekend once in a while that Porsche
drivers rise early and head for the track. We hope for
perfect weather and the track most fit for our car (or
Dad’s car). But this was a Halloween morning, a different
autocross than usual. Black cats would cross the paths of fast
cars and doom them to wiping out cones. We even found one
on my dad’s windshield. Normally when you hit cones you
just get a bad time or maybe a DNF, but this time it was more
punishable. Cone crushing offenders could be doomed to
visit Joel the Grim Reaper, and if you hit a pumpkin you got
ten seconds added to your time. As everyone hoped, it looked
like it wasn’t going to rain, but right after the driver’s meeting
it started to pour.
... but this was Halloween morning ...
Car #619, which I think was a 968, was the first car on
the track. The cars sped around the track in the rain, trying
not to go to fast for fear they would spin. The first cones
went down at precisely 9:47 AM. The Grim Reaper drove
car #167, some sort of hot rod (a borrowed Formula
Atlantic - Ed). He took the first spin and hit an impressive
34 cones for the day. My dad hit four cones, his personal
record. Later in the day the rain stopped and #73, a Honda
Prelude managed to pick up a cone and try to carry it off,
but the guys at the gate caught him.
Now, the technical issue of the autocross; which way do
you go around the figure eight triangles? Many people
figured it out and called it obvious but I decided for fun I’d
take a trip back to last year’s trigonometry class and figure
it out without a car since I only have my permit. I also
figured out who had been sleeping in math class back in
their high school days.
So here’s how it is: two triangles, you have to go around
all the sides once and through the center at least twice. By
observation you can see that both triangles are equilateral,
meaning all the sides are the same and all the angles are 60º.
In trigonometry, if you draw a line down the middle of the
equilateral triangles you will end up with 30-60-90 right
triangles. By that you know that the short sides are each x
but they add up to be 2x. Each hypotenuse is 2x, and the
longer leg has the value x radical 2. The wrong way to get
around the track was to go two long lengths, three short
lengths, and a medium length; meaning straight on two
triangle sides and through the middle once for each long
length, and three short lengths for the turn around the
bottom of the triangle. The length of both long legs of the
right triangles was x radical 2 so I called that the medium
length. A long length is 4x and a short length is 2x.

Here are the two ways that you could go:
We know that 2x√2 is bigger than 2x, so therefore the
first way (left at the first triangle) is shorter.
Most people went the right way and some people went
the wrong way, but it was all fun.
The rain quit as everyone hoped and people got in their
fastest runs at the end of the day. It was a great autocross on
Halloween; the track was a lot of fun (to walk in my case).
One last thing, everyone be sure to stop by the yellow 914
and talk my dad into buying a Boxster or a 911, not an
MR2! Well since we’ll be heading into the five month
autocross drought, see you next year.

Drivers Education at MotorSport Ranch
By Ben Hartsell

My 17th DE – How in the world did I get to this point?
While at lunch with Hans Hoffman a couple of weeks ago
I had a surprise visit at the table by none other than
Lanean Hughes. We were talking about Porsche publications
and Slipstream came up and I was lamenting the fact that it
seems like the AX/TT folks get all the coverage and glamour shots
on the cover! Lanean retorted that if someone (looking me square
in the eye) would submit some content about the DE’s we’d love
to feature them in Slipstream. Well – what could I do at that point
other than volunteer to write a piece about the upcoming inaugural
October Maverick DE at MotorSport Ranch? So here I am,
writing the first installment of what I hope will be a series of articles
on my DE and Porsche experiences.
I got my introduction to Porsche when my wife,
Michelle, purchased a 2000 Boxster new from Boardwalk
Porsche (formerly The Porsche Store). Wayne Corley was our
sales contact and I hit it off well with both Wayne and our
service advisor, Hans Hoffman. It turns out that both Wayne
and Hans were into the DE side of things and took every
opportunity to suggest that I get my own P-car and take it out
to the track. In the meantime my older brother purchased a
2000 996. I drove it and rode in it and that only further fueled
the desire to get my own P-car. I couldn’t get a Boxster
(already had one) and couldn’t get a 996 (can’t copy the older
Larry Irby from Boardwalk Porsche mans the grill
with assistance from his daughter, Nikki.
brother) so I decided to look for the last of the air cooled cars
– a 993. Once I had decided on the 993 I did some research
and became aware of the ‘Turbo-Look’ or ‘C2S’ or ‘Carrera S’
cars and loved the look of the car. So I mentioned off-hand to
Wayne Corley “If you happen to have a Carrera S come
through the shop – let me know – I’m in the market”. Come
to find out that Wayne held his laughter until I was out of
sight – these cars never came onto the market! Well, two
weeks later the improbable happened and a 1997 Carrera S
showed up for trade at the Porsche Store – Wayne called me
– and I bought it. In May of 2001 I became the proud owner
of an Arctic Silver 993 C2S.
Since then I’ve been sucked into the world of Porsche
with a vengeance. As with most 30,000 mile 993’s the suspension
was shot – so I put on Bilstein PSS9’s. The steering wheel
and shifter were worn – so I put in 996 bits to replace the
worn parts and update the look of the interior. The turbo
twist wheels had seen their better days so I updated my street
wheels with the 2002 Carrera 5-spoke wheels. Put on Turbo S

positioning lamps, Euro front bumper cover, clear turn
signals, and I was in love. After the newness of ownership
wore off I decided I’d see what this DE thing was all about. I
went to my first track event as part of the 2001 Maverick
Region instructor clinic – turns out I was going to be a guinea
pig for new instructors! Well – I did my first track driving
with Mike Lapp as my instructor and I loved it! Since then
I have participated in no less than 17 DE’s in 3 years! I’ve
driven Hallet once, TWS twice, TMS twice, and MSR twelve
times. My progression has been steady but sloooow. I’ve
finally become comfortable with the sensations of high speed
driving and am really enjoying it this year. All of my
instructors have been wonderful – and very patient with my
‘methodical’ learning pace.
So why do I DE? I suppose everyone has their own list of
reasons – it’s fun, challenging, a chance to stretch the p-car’s
legs, and is much safer than street ‘racing’. It is all those things
for me but principally I see it as a way to stretch myself. You
see I have some phobias – not too serious but they are there.
Claustrophobia, fear of heights, can’t stand elevators, and
worst of all I don’t like flying – and I fly 30-40 times a year
between work and travel. I decided that I needed to face my
phobias, look them square in the eye, and stretch myself
beyond them. Driving my Porsche at DE’s does just that for
me. I am learning to face the normal fears of crashing, spinning,
and embarassing myself in front of my peers. And it is
working. I’ve gained more confidence in my car – but mostly
more confidence in myself. That confidence extends beyond
the track. It is enhancing my life in general and the lessons I
learn at the track are suprisingly global in their applicability.
If I can face the fears I have at the track and grow beyond
them – well then I can do the same in all aspects of life!
Another fantastic benefit of the DE experience has been
all the friendships I’ve developed. I have gear head buddies to
talk to so I don’t bore Michelle to tears with all the P-car talk.
I have developed business relationships with other club members
– it’s great to do business with someone you actually
know and with whom you share a common love of Porsche.
So I can stretch myself, have a lot of fun, meet great people,
spend time away from the clamor of my every day life – what
is not to like here? If you DE you know what I mean – if you
don’t, seriously consider giving it a try. You just might find
there’s a lot more to it than just blasting around the track!

Big Cedar Lodge Tour
by William (Bill) J. Coates
Once again last week on October 22nd, 23rd, and
24th Ted Glover, with the help of Andy Miller, put
together a great run. The Oklahoma-Arkansas-and
now Missouri tour is in the bag. It’s not our fault
Arkansas didn’t have the space Texas has and tried to put
the same number of miles in a smaller area. The fore
fathers of Arkansas are totally responsible for building
curved roads that go up and down hills between tall trees
that over-hangs the road with beautiful leaves of red,
orange, and yellow which naturally beckon a Texas
Porsche driver. You stick a curve in front of me and my
Porsche and I will enjoy it, I know I will, I’ve seen myself
We had 15 cars and only one car missed a turn in 3
days of driving over 1,500 miles. This is the first tour
that all the cars were of the 911 family with no Boxsters.
The cars were as colorful as the scenery with red, white,
yellow, silver, blue, and of course, black. The one time
we got cars lost was because the person met us in a

seen myself do it ...
different town and was new, therefore did not attend the
driver meeting which is held before we leave in Dallas.
They did not know the rules but learned quickly, we
really look after each other.
We left Dallas Friday morning with a drive up
through Oklahoma to Poteau for lunch at Warehouse
Willy’s then back on the road into Arkansas. No rain so
the roads were dry and traction was very good so we did
our best to straighten them out with our road handling
ability. We sure enjoyed the handling of the Porsche
automobile. Don’t worry we had no effect on them, they
are still just like we left them. With one rest stop after
lunch we rolled into the Big Cedar Lodge in Missouri at
about 5:00 PM. We all registered and cleaned up for the
evening meal at the Devil’s Pool Restaurant.
Ted Glover is retiring from leading all the tours fulltime
but will work with Andy Miller next year for about
5 or 6 trips. Before the meal we gave Ted an album of
pictures from all the trips and comments from different
people who have gone on these trips. Andy Miller and
I have been on most of the trips that Ted has put
together, so we wrote along with a few others’ comments
about Ted for the album and a lot of the members
signed the album after writing their own thoughts. He
really enjoyed looking at the pictures and reading the
funny captions that Andy put on the pictures. I know
Ted and he will put this album in his library for all to
see. Bonnie, Ted’s better half, may even let it sit on the
coffee table. Speaking of Bonnie Glover we have to
thank her as well. I can’t think of one trip she was not
on always relaying turns, road numbers, calling back to
see if all made the turn, helping with coordination,
allowing for her time with Ted to be taken by the club,
and radioing to us to turn right when Ted would say left.
Private joke, Bonnie always relayed to us what direction
Ted said to turn and we were always telling her
afterwards she said left, and then he turned right, and
that she did not know which was her left or right. But
then we heard Ted in the back ground saying left and
she only relayed what he said. Bonnie, rest assured we all
know where the error originated.
After the evening meal and hours of laughing we all
dropped into bed, spent. No, dummy, not in the same
room. We are a together group but all had separate
rooms. Speaking of rooms there is no need in renting
expensive rooms at these nice hotels or resorts because
you do not spend much time in them awake. But the
scenery at Big Cedar was fantastic. The next day we went
on two roads that we have never been on which Ted and
Andy rightly named the “The Snake” and “KingSnake”.
These things had more curves than Jane Mansfield and
as many changes as Texas weather. We conquered the
“The Snake” then took a rest at the town of Summit and
then whipped out the Porsche snake charmer on the
“KingSnake”. There is no Snake we can’t put back in the
charmer’s Snake Basket. A long lunch in Mountainview
and return trip to Big Cedar followed.
We all rested and got ready for another good night
meal with all our friends at the Candlestick Inn in

Branson over looking Lake Taneycomo. This restaurant
put us in a closed room, they were smart. We again had
a very good meal and each received a piece of chocolate
fudge cake that three people could have shared. It was
again an enjoyable meal with our friends talking about
the events. This was followed by an easy drive back to
the resort and straight to bed.
The next day, Sunday, we were on the road at 7:30 to
Turner Bend down route 23 with a stop at the Queen
Wilhelmina Lodge Restaurant on the Talimena Scenic
Byway. A short stop in Antlers, Oklahoma and then the
final drive back into Texas. If you haven’t been on one of
these trips, you should go.

Early 911 Restoration: No. 4
Photo by Charles Freeman
by Charles Freeman
It looks like I am stuck with a problem I assume is common
to a lot of the early 911s - a rusty floorpan. It is my understanding
that they did not start to galvanize the sheetmetal
until about 1969. This was done only on the floorpan until
about 1976 then the entire car was coated. I assume that my car
has a galvanized floorpan. However, as you can see, after I
removed the undercoating there was a severe rusting of the
metal. In some places the rust-rot had eaten half way through
the metal. I had spoken with some local Porsche shops about
repairing the floorpan as I felt this was probably outside my skill
level. Most don’t care to do this kind of work. One shop wanted
to cut the metal out between the door sill and center tunnel then
drop in a new piece from the top (or inside the car). I wasn’t
sure that I liked this idea but the price was right - $500. This
seemed to be an acceptable repair until I found rust located by
the brake master cylinder (not an area easily accessed from
inside or underneath the car). This would not be as easy to
repair as we had first discussed. Well I took my time working on
other parts of the car and finally decided to see if I could do the
rust repair myself. I found a shop that had purchased a factory
OEM 911 floorpan back in the mid-80s and he wanted to get rid
of it. For the paltry sum of $250 I was the proud owner of a
complete factory floorpan. This is a tremendous bargain
because the best price I found in the aftermarket is $200 for just
one side. My floorpan also includes the area by the brake master
cylinder that no restoration company makes.

Okay, now I have a floorpan so it would probably be a good
idea if I knew how to weld. I haven’t touched a welder since high
school (~25 years) so I am sure to be rusty. I want to minimize
my costs so I investigate all my options. I could use stick, MIG,
or TIG. Stick is the old style of welding where you hold an electrically
energized wire in your hand with a metal rod, “stick”,
attached. When you touch the stick to the work surface you
complete the electrical circuit and the high temperatures created
melt the metal. Easy in principal, tough to do on a thin sheetmetal
panel. MIG is a popular do-it-yourself method where the
stick is replaced by a continuous spool of wire. When you want
to weld you press a button and the wire is fed out of a “gun” in
your hand. Then there is TIG. These units are great for performing
very fine welds as they offer a lot of control.
Unfortunately they are the most expensive. The thickness of the
metal in the floorpan is about 0.040” or 19 Ga. Most welding
units are designed for joining thick pieces of metal. Welding
thin sheetmetal is probably the most challenging form of welding.
If the welder is held in one place too long you get “blowthrough”
(a big hole in the metal). If the time is insufficient then
you don’t have good weld metal penetration between the two
sheets of metal. Heat distortion is another critical issue because
during the welding process the metal expands slightly. If too
much of this occurs then the metal warps. So now to the issue
of which kind: stick or MIG. Cheap MIG units can be had for
about $150 then you need to purchase a bottle of shielding gas
for about $100. I found a well known automotive restoration
company sells an attachment for a stick welder that allows quality
welds on 24 Ga. material (bigger number is thinner metal).
They also have an attachment to allow spot welding. I purchased
both of these gizmos for about $50 each. I then found a 110Vstick
welder on e-bay for $100. So I was off and running with
this welding “system”. I practiced welding with this attachment
which basically vibrates the tip of the electrode up and down so
the electrode does not make continuous contact with the part.
Well if you have ever tried to keep a 6” pencil in one spot while
someone vibrates your hand up and down (I can just see you
trying that right now) imagine doing that with a 12” electrode
with sparks flying everywhere. Mark down one tool for the trash
bin. The spot welder seemed to work okay but I can’t verify the
quality of the joint without pulling the two panels of metal
apart. Luckily a friend of a friend had a nice Miller Electric 115V
MIG welder that I could borrow. With a little time and patience
I learned to weld quite well on thin practice sheetmetal. I
became quite excited when I could hear the bzzzzzz of a quality
weld. Contrast that to bzz-pop-bzzzz-pop of a bad weld.
After sufficient practice I was ready to weld in some bracing
in the car. If I am to remove the entire floorpan then I will
be loosing some of the structural integrity of the car. The doorsills
and center tunnel act as the backbone with the floorpan
connecting these components. I used square stock tubing and
cross-braced the car in all three spatial planes.
Now is the fun of removing the old floorpan. I purchased a
spot weld drill and started to drill out the welds. There are two
kinds of spot weld drills that I found. The first looks just like a
very short drill bit with a very wide angle at the tip. The second
is like a tiny hole-saw with a center guide pin. This is the one I
purchased since it was $19 instead of $30 for the previous one.
With the spot weld bit I purchased you must drill a pilot hole
for the guide pin to fit into otherwise the spot drill just wanders
all over. I am not sure how many spot welds there are in the
floorpan but I used up 4 of the pilot drill bits at $5 each just
working on the driver’s side of the car. This was also very
Photo by Charles Freeman
tedious work. I then realized I could purchase drill bits with a
130∞ angle and these would cut through the near panel and
slightly into the far panel and work much faster than my spotweld
drill. I went through another 10 of these drills at about $5
each and I was probably only a third of the way through. I spoke
with a neighbor who, at one time, restored a 356 and he suggested
that I just use a sledgehammer and chisel to separate the two
panels. It sounded a bit crude, but hey, he did it on his car. So I
tried this for a very short period of time. That sledgehammer got
very heavy and in a tight space I ended up hitting my head, my
hand…. This really didn’t seem to be working well so I tried out
my new air chisel. This did a beautiful job of separating the panels
and made one heck of a racket. Only problem is that it was
difficult to control the cutting direction. In a very short period of
time I had cut out the rusty floorpan but was left with a lot terribly
distorted doorsill/center tunnel and a lot of metal that
needed to be ground away to create an even surface for welding.
There goes another lesson. Take advice for what it cost to get.

ALMS Audi Sports Car Championship
Photo by Bill Stafford
by Bill and Marilyn Stafford
The season ending 4-hour race for the 2004 American
LeMans Series wasn’t the first race ever run into the
darkness, but it was the first time a night race has been
held at Laguna Seca. If you were to purposely pick a spot to
hold a night race it couldn’t be any darker than at Laguna.
Although the “neighbors” were complaining about the noise
(Laguna Seca is situated up in the hills inside the old Ft. Ord
Artillery Range impact zone), the race ended at 8 PM and no
further nasty phone calls came in after that.
Practices for the night races are different. That is to say
the night practice sessions are not held the night before
(exception being Daytona) and the time between them and
the race tends to dull the memory a bit. Couple that with an
uncertain weather forecast, and you have an interesting
event. This being the final 2004 Race, most of the Class winners
were predictable, barring, of course, a catastrophic
event. None the less, the race was interesting and when the
rain came with about 30 minutes to go, it became more
interesting as darkness and a slick track prevailed with no
one wanting to pit for rain tires until absolutely necessary.
The Race: The British #27 Creative Autosportif DBA-
Zytek surprised many by taking the pole in front of the
Audis. Driver Nicolas Minassian knew they would face a
tough race with the 2 Audis and the ever-present Dyson
cars. “We know the Audis will be consistent. They push
buttons to get out of the pit where I have to worry about the
clutch, gas, and brake. I will need a ten second lead to be
successful in the pits.” But if you guessed Audi would win,
you would be correct. They just keep steamrolling right
along. The only thing that changed was the Team. The #38
Series champions J.J. Lehto and Marco Werner came in 2nd
this time, while the #2 Audi R8 with Johnny Herbert and
Pierre Kaffer managed to take the checker.
the win in that order and Job (factory driver) Timo
Bernhard also took the driving title. Team Flying Lizards
Porsche was 3rd. Sadly, the rumor may be true that the Alex
Job Porsche Team may be calling it quits after this year, but
the official word is “undecided”.
Pit Rat Notes: The Track Management continues to
surprise the Fans with some varied racing events (shifter
Carts) and the occasional weird thing. This year, there was a
Brazilian Dance Troupe decked out in Carnivale outfits
going up and down the Paddock. More than 1 driver was
seen following the scantily clad dancers as they … well,
There is still a lot of Team indecision regarding the
2005 season. Dick Barbour was in the pits throughout the
weekend talking to various manufacturers. He will not be
back with the Lamborghinis, but he will be back.
The next item hurts my brain. American Le Mans Series
introduces the “Founder’s Challenge Cup” to celebrate
accomplishments of gentlemen drivers (What about gentlewomen
drivers?). Drivers in the AMLS whose primary
career is not racing will have their own championship to
compete for in 2005. Named in honor of ALMS founder
Don Panoz, the Founder’s Challenge Cup will recognize
drivers in each race, with points awarded for a season-long
championship. The champions will receive unique,
“specially designed awards” that will be revealed at the 2005
season-opening event at Sebring. Enough said……
Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca continues to undergo
more changes. Over the winter, the gravel trap runoff area at
turn 9 will be expanded due in large part to the AMA
Motorcycle race requirements. Ironically, the best place to
view the race (my opinion) is at the signature “Corkscrew”
Turn 8 where the view is now marred by the addition of
high catch fences mandated by the Champ Car Series.
Several individuals, off the record, made comments that if
and when CART goes out of business, the fence would be
Also for the first time the Grand American Road
Racing Association (GARRA) will be bringing the Grand
Am series and the Daytona Prototypes to Laguna Seca for
the 2005 Seasons 4th race on May 1st.
Get to a race and support your local Racetrack.
Olivier Beretta driving the #4 Corvette grabbed the pole
in the GTS class, tying Ron Fellows for the most poles in the
Series. However Fellows and Johnny O’Connell in the #3 car
ended up with the win. With the pullout of the Team
Barbour Lamborghini’s after the Petit LeMans at Road
Atlanta, the Corvettes own the GTS class. This victory was a
3-lap runaway from the Saleen and marked the first win for
Team Corvette at Laguna Seca while finishing off a perfect
year in which they went undefeated.
