Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

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.

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Slipstream Editor

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

Maverick Minutes

by Mimi Spreen

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

and passed.

track, but honorable

mention goes to the

Come Spring and good weather, we’ll be heading back

had more spins than we see in

a typical D.E. weekend. Next time,

I’ll have Joe McGlohen bring a

black flag.

New members included

Creighton Cardwell (’78 911) and

Bryan Corbell (’79 930). And it was

great to see Paul Norwood, who

hasn’t been very active lately. Here’s

hoping that we see more of Paul in

the future.

Charity Autocross

By Marcus Booth

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:

1: 3(4x)+2(2x)=16x

2: 2(4x)+3(2x)+2x√2=14x+2x√2

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

do it.

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.

Photo by Charles Freeman

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

20


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,

you know.

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

removed.

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.

In the GT class, the Alex Job #23 and #24 Porsches took
