My Thoughts

by Jan Mayo, Slipstream Managing Editor

Ya know, you just rock along every day, doing

the things you do thinking folks are generally

happy and everything is ok. Then you find

out, six months later, that someone was not only

happy, they were so impressed with one of our

events that they wrote about their experience in

their home newsletter and plan to adopt some of

our practices into their own programs. Wow. Seems last fall Toby

Duckett from Chicago was visiting a friend here in Texas and they

attended one of our MSR DE’s. Toby’s experience, well the whole

2800 mile round trip, was so invigorating that he wrote about it in

Chicago’s monthly newsletter “Chicago Scene,” expressing a nice

Thank You to Maverick Region for the grand time he had at MSR.

He had a list of things that our DE’s do on a regular basis that

they may incorporate into their DE events, including: on-line

registration, run groups and teams with team leaders, filled

registration packets. Way to go Bill Dawson and your 2006 DE

Team! You just got a Chicago size pat on the back.

Caren Cooper, our gorgeous new Zone Rep, hosted a Zone 5

Presidents and Editors meeting in March. A representative from

nearly every region was present, just the farthest south (New

Orleans, Baton Rouge and Corpus Christi) were not able to come.

PCA’s National Executive Secretary, Vu Nguyen, was here and

enthralled us for the entire morning (really!) with what’s

happening in the National office, insurance procedures and tales

of the ’72 914 which he was picking up the next morning in Tulsa

to drive back to Virginia. Vu has brought a ton of energy and

marvelous management skills to the job so if you have any

problem or question or just want to chat with a really fun guy, feel

free to call or email PCA’s National office. Vu will help you

with what you need and you’ll feel like you’ve made a wonderful

new friend.

Catch my Draft

by James Shoffit, the Maverick Region President

Alot of people seemed to appreciate the

article I wrote last month and told me

so – thanks for all the kind words, and it

is good to know someone besides Wendy reads

my articles!

Our Concours program is just going like

gangbusters. By the time you get this, we will

have probably already had our May at Mayos

Concours – and as of right now, 23 cars are signed up. That

is just incredible! Now I just hope it didn’t rain us out.

A bit about Slipstream being late – we are in a difficult

position with that. Back a few years ago, Slipstream worked

like this : 1) The editor would finish Slipstream, drive it to

Ussery, they would process it and print it (takes 2-5 days

depending on their workload). 2) The printed copies would

then be brought to my house. 3) Andy Mears would print a set

of labels based on our membership database, subscribers,

advertisers, and sponsors. 4) We would call a group of 5-7

people to come over as quick as they could, and spend an

evening applying labels to all 1200 Slipstreams. We would

then bag them according to zip code, label the bags

appropriately, and put them in my car. 5) Andy would fill out

all the paperwork the post office needed, and often Bob

Knight would have to write a check for postage. 6) The next

morning I would take off from work and drive them over to

the post office in Fort Worth and manually bring the bags

inside to be processed, usually standing in line as one often

does at a post office.

This was a great process as far as expediency is concerned.

They were able to get to you much quicker. The problem is

one of sustainability. When it wasn’t me doing the driving and

delivering and labeling, it would be Tinker or Jan or Wendy or

someone else. Finding volunteers to continually make that

level of sacrifice is challenging to say the least. It is hard

enough to get an Editor, for Pete’s sake! (thanks again, Jan!)

So we decided to hire that process out. Now Slipstream

gets printed and Ussery Printing delivers them to Tri-Win,

who handles all the label creation, labeling, bagging, and

delivering to the Dallas post office (rather than Fort Worth).

So this takes a few days for them to handle that rather than

the usual 24 hours it took us. Add to that the fact that the

Dallas post office seems to be busier, and it sometimes takes a

week or more to get the issue all the way to my house in

Irving.

So what can we do about it ? The first thing we are going

to try is having Tri-Win deliver the Slipstreams to the Fort

Worth post office. It seems like we had much better delivery

times – which could shave a week off of the receipt date –

when we used them. The Fort Worth office could be as busy

as the Dallas office is now, so we don’t know if that will work

or not. All we can do is try.

The second thing we have discussed is moving up the

deadlines and production dates. The problem with this is we

are creating ads for events that are 3 months out, and reporting

on events two months ago. So you would read about the

Holiday Party in the February issue and Mark Gluck would

have to create ads for the May at Mayo’s Concours in March.

Often we don’t work out the details soon enough to be able to

produce ads, and reporting on events that far behind just

doesn’t suit our small-club feel we enjoy so much. If we were

a big corporation, that is probably how it would be done, but

we don’t want to revert to that unless we have to. We have no

paid positions – we are all just volunteers, so have to do what

we can to not run volunteers off.

Of course the PRIMARY reason Slipstream arrives late is

because I am always the last one to turn in my article! I think

Rocky and Keith know what I am talking about!

Come on out and join the fun! See you soon!

Maverick Minutes

by Charlie Davis

In attendance: Jan Mayo, Christy Dominick,

Denny Payne, Charlie Davis, Teri Davis, Travis

Howard, Robyn Howard, Bill Miller, Dennis

Chamberlain, Joe McGlohen, James Shoffit, Wendy

Shoffit, Bob Kuykendall, Mark Gluck, Bryan Bell,

and Bob Bianconi.

At about 6:55 PM, Bob Bianconi ran in

and (between deep breaths) said he had 9 people signed up for

the pending Concours at May @ Mayo’s. He then told us a

story about car keys and UPS. You had to be there. Bob left as

quickly as he came.

James called the meeting to order at 7:10 PM. He inquired

about sponsorship for the upcoming club race. Joe reported that

Keith had asked him to work with Boardwalk regarding the

details of their sponsorship. James, trying to help Bob B out with

the Concours, asked for a list of previous (old) Concours entrants

(from the era when we had Concours events). We came up with

a few names. James asked who delivers Slipstream to our dealers?

He also asked if it might be a good idea to schedule a Tour to a

Tech Session?

James announced that National has a new requirement

whereby both the President and Vice-President must approve a

newsletter prior to printing. We discussed this a bit and

concluded it might make finding candidates for Pres/V-Pres

difficult, but would solve the problem of finding an Editor.

Dennis and Bob will schedule with the accountant to do the

2006 audit after 4-15-2007. Dennis reported that the latest

Happy Hour was good and gave us a quick rundown of the

pending ones. He told a story about sharing food with Tink. The

moral of this story was not to. You had to be there.

Bob K allowed as how we have money. He asked board

members to let him know in advance about fixed expenses. He

reported that Joe/Keith got the storage unit paid up recently.

Mark reported that now we have insurance coverage for

officers and chairs of the Region.

Joe reported that he was representing the DE Chairmen. He

went on to request five radios, one gang charger (for six radios),

two storage boxes, and some number boards (that won’t melt or

dissolve). The board approved $3000 for these purchases.

Bill said we are having a Club Race and that 12 people have

signed up so far. He said Boardwalk paid for printing the Club

Race flyers. Thank you Boardwalk!

James interrupted: He forgot something… Chris Alvarado

from Austin may try to organize a Zone-5 Charity Autocross to

coincide with our last event of the year at TMS.

Bryan reported that AX #1 had 57 ? entrants, TT #1 had 25

entrants, and AX #2 had 35 entrants. We discussed why the last

two were small…concluded it was bogus weather reports. Bryan

noted that he had not received insurance certificates for the last

two events. Mark will check on this.

Robyn “Takin’ Up Space” Howard passed.

Travis had several questions about our AXes. He noted that

AX #2 stopped early and wondered why. Bryan and Charlie

explained that we either do fun runs or have an AX Challenge

after official runs. There were several people who came from

out-of-town (Houston, Austin, Colorado Springs, and Florence,

which is S of Ft. Hood) and wanted to get an early start home.

When these people left, there were not enough people left to do

much! We briefly discussed our new classification system. Until

we know what classes all the cars are in, James can’t produce

results. Travis also inquired about the $170 DE fee (he likes it),

but was told it only applies to the DE at the Club Race. Dennis

then took Travis outside and shot him [joke]. His picture will

appear in his box in the May Slipstream.

Teri reported that the last Rally made $40.00. Bob K injected

that Rallies have the highest net profitability of all events.

Charlie noted (not a complaint) that Darron had problems

with his new TimeTrial timing software. We need to be patient as

he debugs it.

Denny will try to reconfigure the website so that it plays to

mobile devices. Stay tuned…

Christy said that PayPal was working great. She continues to

add products and features to the Goodie Store portion of our web

site. She reported there was not much traffic yet. We discussed

some ideas for getting more Goodie Store traffic, such as creating

a flier for Club Race entrants. Teri asked if the Goodie Store

wanted to handle our special T-shirts for the San Diego Parade?

She will send .CDR files to Christy.

Jan reported that she had two articles about Rally and one

article about TimeTrial #1 and Autocross #2 in the pipeline. She

needs more articles, though. Bryan Bell has agreed to do a series

of articles about Autocrossing.

Wendy reported that the tardy Slipstreams are not Jan’s fault.

The problem is with the Dallas Post Office. She suggested and the

board concurred that we need to move back to the Ft. Worth PO.

We believe this will cost us about $50.

James interrupted again. National is starting a new e-mail

service with which we can send messages to groups of members.

Individual members can opt out if they do not want to receive

these communications. It will use the national database and be

available for use within a couple of months. It will work

similarly to Constant Contact.

Wendy continued by giving the Webmaster a heads up that

Keith will have some Club Race info put together soon. She

inquired whether we want to add an option to our

clubregistration.net page to donate to our charity. We decided

yes. Wendy reminded us that Jan is the National Awards Chair,

and while discussing National Awards, she nominated Tracey and

Ed Gross for Family of the Year. The Board thought that was a

good idea.

Prior to adjourning at 8:30 PM, James inquired where the

cookies were? They were last seen in Dennis’s vicinity, but he left

early. You had to be there!

Premier Wine Tasing

by Trish Moncus

Every now and then, you stumble across an event that

sounds too good to be true and this event had our names

written all over it- we love wine, it was 5 minutes from

the house, and it was with car people. So we were there. Not

to make it sound like we drink wine for a living (I wish),

but we’ve been to a lot of wine tastings ,we’ve vacationed

visiting vineyard so we know that they can run the gamut from

pretentious to wonderful and this event fell into the latter

category as it was really enjoyable.

First, you have to love an instructor that includes a

Margarita wine in the line-up. James of Premier Wines was

One of many lovely toasts of the evening

Premier Wines dedicated a bottle of wine to Tracey

my kind of wine guy. He appreciates that everyone has

different tastes, different budgets and different reasons for

buying, drinking and gifting wine. If you were new to wine

tasting, this was a great start as James was unpretentious, he

was informative and he was fun, which is what it should be.

Tracey did a fantastic job of starting us off with a good

even had one blue wine. Everyone was hard pressed to find

something that they didn’t like.

I would encourage anyone who is interested learning

more about wine to attend future events as it’s a comfortable,

relaxing atmosphere shared with friends.

My First Rally

Ethan Bradley - Age 11

My first rally began at the Flower Mound Animal Adoption

Center. My dad went as the driver with me as the

navigator. At the beginning of the rally we had to read

a form with all the rules on it. The cars that participated were

2 Boxsters that were red and white, one green 911, one orange 914,

and one Volvo.

The main point of the rally was to time yourselves between

certain points on a course throughout the countryside. After the

first lap we returned to our starting point and wrote down how

long it took us. Next, we started the second lap. We tried to match

the time from our first lap while driving through the same

course. However, the second lap included the search for

tie-breakers. For example, one clue was “Tezmeral also sold _ .”

The blank was German Shepards.

It was so painful to drive below the speed limit, because my

dad and I were ahead of our first lap’s time and needed to slow

down! One of my favorite things was driving with the top down,

so I could feel the wind blowing through my hair on such a

beautiful, sunny day!

After the rally the group went to Friday’s where we had a

snack. Also, 1st ,2nd, and3rd places were awarded (my dad and I

almost got third). Meeting new people was another of my

favorite parts of the day. MY MOST FAVORITE PART OF THE

DAY WAS SPENDING TIME WITH MY DAD DOING WHAT

WE LOVE DOING!!!!!!!!

Play it Again, Sam

by Frank Briggs - Ageless

The weather was cool and Spring was in the air in Flower

Mound, Texas as Teri and Charlie hosted a fun filled Sunday

afternoon rally. The rally type was known as a Regularity

Rally. At my age, I thought this was something that I might need.

On further explanation, I discovered that this form of rally is the

comparison of two identical rally routes run with as close to the

same time as possible. The instructions were straight forward and

the scenery was filled with beautiful estates, winding roads and

thoroughbred horse stables.

There were 5 competing teams and awards for 1st thru 3rd

place. Bobbie and I came in 5th only because there were just 5

cars. We navigated the route just fine, but our times were not

close enough to bring home the gold or silver or bronze. I think

I’ll blame it on Sunday being the first day of daylight savings time

or something. Coming in 4th place was the team of Richard

Bradley and his son Ethan in their beautiful red Boxter. Watch for

an article by Ethan from the navigator’s point of view. He is a very

mature young man and I am anxious to read his report of the day.

3rd place went to Mark and Catherine LaCroix who joined us in

their Volvo. Mark and Catherine were guests who recently

became members of SCCA and reside in Grapevine. Their time

differential was only about 30 seconds from their first and second

run. You can tell times were close for there only to be a 30 second

difference for 3rd place. 2nd place went to Jan Mayo and Kevin

Davis in Jan’s white Boxter with a differential of only 25 seconds.

The gold went to Betty and Clay Perine driving a beautiful 914.

Their differential was 10 seconds. I guess they adapted to daylight

savings time much better than I.

After the rally we gathered at TGI Friday’s for dinner, dessert

and the awards ceremony. While I came in last place, I got to

spend a wonderful afternoon driving my Porsche with my wife by

my side and new acquaintances in front of me and behind. With

that kind of atmosphere, who minds whether they came in 5th or

10th.

Thanks again to Teri and Charlie for hosting a fun afternoon.

Our clocks are now synchronized—Teri, when is the next rally?

Pivot Cones Galore!

by Wendy Shoffit

As the beginning of each autocross season gets nearer, I get a sense

of trepidation. I haven’t driven our race car (a 1978 911 SC) in

several months… What if I forget how to autocross?... What if I

embarrass myself?... What if the car breaks or the tires completely

cord?... Even though I’ve done this since 1998, I still get butterflies in my

stomach. I don’t want to look bad in front of all the people I love to

tease! But then, before I know it, the first autocross of the year is upon

me and I fall back into the swing of things. I’m lucky this year

because Andrea Bell has offered to take over the primary registration

responsibilities (after having done it for about 7 years). Mike Lockas

took over doing worker assignments 2 years ago. Now it seems as

though I have a bit of time in the mornings to focus! That’s good and

bad. Good that I can think; bad that I can think too much!

Conner and Jasmine helping Mike with the worker assignments.

The course Bryan designed for AX #1 at Texas Motor Speedway

really made me crazy. I *HATE* pivot cones more than any other

element available in an autocross. I can’t seem to get them right. I’ll take

slaloms, skidpads, and boxes any day over pivot cones. Bryan’s course

had FIVE of them, zig zagging back and forth in the same section. I, of

course, thought he did it to be mean to me. He, of course, did it to

be challenging and something we’d never seen before. Regardless, I

grumbled about it and shook my fist in his general direction.

Wendy’s first pivot cone of the season

James took his laps first and turned in some good times. After

changing the car from fitting his 6’3” frame to my 5’4” one, I was

ready for his sage advice. He’s a great husband in that he’s not as

interested in beating my times as he is in improving my driving. He’s

always quick to tell me what line to try, what gears to use, and how he

thinks I can speed up. I’m usually 1-2 seconds behind his time. While

in “real life,” that’s time for only a quick breath, but for an autocross

lap, it feels like forever! My times end up being pretty decent. I was

surprised because I felt there was more I could do.

We switched to working, had lunch, and then came back out for

another go at it. For my second set, I turned in some GREAT times! I

had James’ times beat, but I knew he had one more session to go. You

see, while HE isn’t all that competitive with me, he can afford to be

that way because he nearly always beats me! I, on the other hand, am

extremely competitive with him AND everyone else. I can’t use the

excuse that his car is better set up than mine or his tires are stickier. I

blame it on the testosterone. He has too much and I don’t have

enough. I’ve said for years that I’d take testosterone injections if I

weren’t so afraid of the facial hair! But I digress… As I watched him

drive his final few laps, ever improving his times, I started getting

those butterflies again. I wanted him to do well, but just not beat me

this time. On his final lap, he drove like a madman and ended up

spinning. Argh! I didn’t want it to end like THAT!... Although… I did

beat his time… *giggle*

Not only did I beat James’ time, but I got Bryan, too! I’ve not

beaten him in forever and this time it was only by 0.009 seconds! The

only Porsche to best me that day was Danny Nowak in his tricked out

white 914-6! (And I’ve been told he drove for several years in Indy

Lights, so I don’t feel so bad!)

What a day! What an event! What a big head I now need

deflating… It was fun.

Fun After the Storm

by Jeff Herrmann and Tannia Dobbins

In spite of the recent storms and the eight inches of rain Mineral

Wells received the day before, the weekend of Mar 30/Apr 1 was

absolutely beautiful and many folks made the trip on good faith

that MineralRing would be in

shape for the events. Those who

showed up were delighted with the

wonderful weather (although

Saturday morning was a little

chilly and windy – imagine that)

and a nice clean lot. Jim Hedderick

(Boxster, #39), who made the

trip from Houston, found the

Mike is bundled up

per the hotels warnings

event worthy and fun. Even Mike

Lockas (944, #31) still came out

after the hotel called him to

discourage his trip!

Time Trial #1

The Time Trial configuration was laid out for course #1 which

was nice because this was the one that the TT School students

were familiar with. It is great having the confidence to take on

something familiar … and something that we tackled just a few

weeks before. In fact, the course was actually a little more fun since

the right corner after start/finish had been opened up slightly

making it easier to navigate the turn.

Well Jeff, you didn’t HIT the cone,

but is backwards the quicker way around it?

The opening season for time trials saw the launching of a new

timing program. All was off to a great start then some SNAFU’s

appeared. Several cars were given reruns … well, I guess you could

say they needed them after seeing run times about 30 seconds

faster than their competitors. I

know Bryan Bell (996, #204)

told everyone at the driver’s

meeting that he was going to get

Rick Randall doing the Wave

the fastest time of the day

(because, as he exclaimed,

“Richard Diller (911S, #550) is

not here!”). Indeed he did with

a 65.566, but we are still wondering what he put under the hood

that day! Jake’s dad, Kevin (#122), driving a BMW M3, ended up

having to take ten laps all at once but after eight had said

“enough!” There is indeed something odd about being out there

all by yourself going around and around...

Since the day progressed rather quickly, Bryan and a bunch of

volunteers took the time to paint the course. In fact, they were able

to paint permanent markings for courses one, two, and three.

Autocross #2

Charlie Davis devised a course that used almost every foot of

the MineralRing. It was one of the longest courses seen in a great

number of events. He was able to combine some technical turns

while still making the course easy to follow. Very few people got

lost on this 90-100 second course. Of course, what would a

Charlie constructed course be without the theme names for each

turn. With names like Propaganda, Chi Z, Chi Cane, Tunnel and

Momentum, the court could not determine if the theme was

Chinese (Chi = energy), Chicago (Chi short for Chicago) or

Vietnam (Propaganda, Tunnel, and Momentum).

It’s great to see Danny Nowak back out at Mineral Wells

Wendy Shoffit (911, #11) being the trooper that she always is,

worked setup, registration etc. and didn’t have time to walk the

course. This was apparent during her first run when she scared us

all to death by trying to reconfigure the course on the fly! She got

over it right way and came back to take the fastest time of the day

among the ladies with a 98.618.

Just a Couple Technical Problems

What would any weekend be without a few technical car

problems? It seems that Rick Randall (Targa, #161) wanted to

participate so much that he drove all the way there on corded tires

… raced the morning time trials, then figured he had better leave

a little rubber on the tires to get home in one piece so he headed

out at lunch time. Needless to say, we missed his lively radio

etiquette calling in each car status at start/finish.

Clay flies by the cone, prior to the Chi Cane

As for dinner, there was a good turnout at Baris’ (we got to sit

in the back room). The only scary event of the evening was when

Nancy decided she was ready to help Mike Lockas (944, #31)

expand his talents. Mike received “on the fly” training on how to

work the cash register and really enjoyed taking everyone’s money

that night. Tannia Dobbins (Boxster, #77) who wasn’t sure Mike

really know what he doing with everyone’s credit cards opted to

pay cash just to be on the safe side. Maybe it was because she

heard Mike say “Now…how do I run those credit cards through

again?”

Danny Nowak (914, #306), back this year after a long hiatus,

was having some excellent runs when the shifting linkage gave out.

He really wanted to stay for the autocross on Sunday but couldn’t

Jason Rogers shows Jeff the right way to go around a cone

figure out how to run the course without first and second gear.

Nonetheless, he and Nan enjoyed Baris’ and a relaxing evening

with the dinner group.

Clay Perrine (914, #24) was having a great weekend until

something went awry with his car at corner four of the autocross

course. It seems that he went into the Chi Cane box and never

came back out. I’m not sure that this was what Charlie had in

mind when he designed it!

One last note: For all of you that didn’t hear the news, Tracey

Gross (Boxster, #284) was planning on attending but broke her

wrist the week before. So to Tracey: GET WELL SOON. We

missed you this weekend!!

Photos by Charie Davis

Chuck McCoy (944, #44) had a scare on the TT course at

corner 3 (caught on camera by Charlie Davis) – which was

probably not the corner where you wanted your brakes to fail.

Well, actually, it was just one brake pad, but Chuck had to forego

the rest of the afternoon session until he could make evening

repairs. All turned out well since Chuck was able to step in and

work start/finish when Rick departed.

Who can forget the story Christy Dominick (944, #199) and

Denny Payne (944, #991) had about their 944 not starting? It

seems that Christy may have a potential career in auto mechanics

since she knew that a screwdriver squeezed in the right place can

help free up a stuck injector every time! Both Christy and Denny

missed the time trials but they made sure they were at Baris’ for

dinner that night.

We are now building and taking orders for Porsche 924/944's for SCCA, PCA and NASA racing for

the 2007 season.

With the addition of the PCA 944-SPEC (SP1-SP3) series, there is now a greater than ever venue

to economically race these cars. In SCCA, you can have a GT2, GT3, EP, or ITA racer. With PCA,

you can pick from a number of classes, dependent upon your car.

Cars are built from mild to wild, depending upon what class you plan to enter and to what level

you want to participate.

Our experience building and racing Porsches goes back to our 911's in the mid and late 70's,

924's and 944's in the 80's in SCCA, IMSA GTU and Firehawk, PCA in the late and early 80's/90's,

and Speedvision GT, Rolex GT and GT in 2000 up. In addition to the Porsches, we have had a

hand in building five AUDI S4's for the Grand AM Cup, and a couple of AUDI TT's for SCCA.

We can build on our inventory of chassis's, or take yours and develop it into the race car you want.

Get ready for the 2007 season NOW!! We plan to attend and support as many race events for

2007 as our racing schedule will allow.

Happy Hour at Saltgrass

by Dennis Chamberlain

The Saltgrass has been one of our annual traditions for

Maverick Happy Hours since 2001, and it turned out to be

excellent again this year in terms of food and service.

One of the highlights of the evening had to be Clint

Blackman who appeared with, of all things, an HO gauge Porsche

locomotive made by

Marklin trains (made, of

course, in Germany).

HO Gauge

It’s a replica of the

Deutsche Bahn electric

engine that transports

our completed cars

from Stuttgart to the

North Sea for overseas

transport. Clint knew all

the statistics for it,

including the fact that it

had 8,200 horsepower

and can do zero to 200

kmh in 20 seconds! The

statement on the side of the locomotive says “We sit here on the

rails, but our heart is on the road.”

New members Jim and Karen

Lincoln, Gene Harkey, Brian

Bolton and Guhan Raghu attended,

along with Vintage Porsche

icon Jack Griffin, who gave me an

update on the progress of the

Dream Garage.

For dinner Tinker Edwards

and I shared a ribeye, and you

would have thought we were at Del

Frisco’s (well, almost), while at the

same time debating with Karen

Lincoln the benefits of eating raw

oatmeal (you sort of had to be

there).

Speaking of Germany and traditions, for our happy hour

on May 17th we return to the Bavarian Grill in Plano. Come

ready to enjoy the German food and wine, and remember that

the portions are huge, so you might want to share. Hope to see

you there!

Welcome, New Members!

You have just joined one of the best and most active PCA

Regions in the country! Some clubs focus solely on social

events, while others focus on just show and shine concours

events. Maverick Region is a club that focuses on providing our

members with the tools necessary to have the ultimate in driving

experiences.

You will notice that our region has many Time Trials,

Autocrosses, and Drivers’ Education (DE) events (in addition to

a yearly Club Race). This has been the spirit of the region for

quite some time. We have some of the finest instructors in the

country. Make sure you take full advantage of the driving experiences

we have to offer.

Racing is not ALL we focus on, though. If racing doesn’t

suit you, we have monthly happy hours, three monthly lunch

gatherings, regular dinner socials, frequent driving tours on

some fabulous roads in and around Texas, driving rallies (fun

for the whole family), and regular opportunities to support

our perpetual charity, the Hope Shelter.

If we don’t have what you’re looking for, just ask us... we

might just add something extra to the calendar.

Please also feel free to share article ideas (and submissions)to

editor@mavpca.org.

We’d love to hear from you!
