Ups and Downs

by Jan Mayo, Slipstream Managing Editor

Years ago Lucy said in a Peanuts comic strip,

“I don't want any ups and downs. I only

want ups and ups and ups!” Well there have

been a whole bunch of UPS here recently. At the Club

Race over Memorial Day I was thrilled to see Steve

Watkins car… wait a minute, last I heard he was still on

crutches recovering from his private plane wreck (see

January issue). Well it indeed was Steve not only walking

unaided except for a small ankle brace, but driving and racing quite

well. Rah Rah.

Another UP was seeing Rick Randall walking around the paddock.

While he can't get in his Porsche yet due to his rather large HALO device

he can get around very well and he was smiling and chatting with everyone

while watching the racing. He's actually feeling so good he wants the

doctors to rig up the HALO to be water proof so he can get back in the

pool again. Just no diving, Rick!

More UPS - Bob Dunn is home and walking hot laps around his

kitchen and living room. After a collision in Big Bend with Brooke Van

Horn, he spent a week in the hospital. He's back home now and recovering

well. Brooke is UP and endeavoring to not catch a cold because his

cracked sternum would be very painful with a sneeze or cough. Both

gentlemen are doing well and are very grateful for the help, care and love

sent their way by Maverick Region (another UP). Many, many Mavericks

went to visit Bob and Karen while they enjoyed the hospitality of Harris

Methodist Hospital. Several ladies provided Karen with snacks, lotions

and magazines while the guys bench raced with Bob filling him in on the

final standings of the various races. Such caring and giving of baskets

and bags of goodies and visitation time for our out of town friends

makes me very proud to be a Maverick.

The down? Bob and Brooke's cars are not so good. But when you

look at the overall scheme of things, life and limb - ALL our guys are safe

and sound. We love you Bob, Brooke, Rick and Steve. It's good - and will

be great - when we see you all UP and dancing and driving and racing

again.

Rick Randall isn’t letting a little thing like a Halo stop him!

Catch my Draft

by James Shoffit, the Maverick Region President

Iam now recovering from the great racing

weekend bestowed upon us. Le Mans and US

Grand Prix falling on the same weekend was

quite a Father's Day treat! Lewis Hamilton has

brought a bunch of excitement back that might

have been lacking with Michael Schumacher leaving.

Waiting for the kid to make a single mistake

is getting quite tiring, though. But there have

been some good races this year. Porsche was well represented at Le

Mans with Patrick Long and his team taking first place in the GT2

class. And to top it all off, we had a wonderful Father's Day picnic

hosted by Andrea and Bryan Bell. Bryan fought off the rain with his

grilling tools, and the afternoon was wonderful. The kids had a

blast swimming, the adults had a blast chatting, and the food and

hospitality were wonderful.

But one of my favorite things to do with the Porsche people locally

is the lunches. I always enjoy eating, and eating with friends makes

it even better. Right now the Lewisville lunch is doing pretty well,

but I haven't heard as many good reports about the others. I think

what we need there is someone to take charge - like Lanean used to

- and get us going. So I would like to get a volunteer for each of the

lunches - Bedford, Plano, and Addison (I will take on the Lewisville

lunch) - and have them do the following things. 1) Announce to

the email list that the lunch is coming up (a day or two in advance

so people can make plans). 2) answer emails or phone calls from

people having questions about the lunch. 3) At the restaurant, tell

the manager and/or hostess that the Porsche Club is there and

where you will be sitting. I think that could help to increase attendance.

Just knowing ONE person will be there should make it easier

for people to commit, and if the manager or hostess know we are

there, they can direct people to our table that ask about us. So send

me an email to volunteer - president@mavpca.org.

Another position we need to fill is the chair for Autocross and Time

Trial. That used to be two positions, but Bryan Bell made the case

that one person can handle it, and he certainly has. But if you want

to volunteer for JUST time trials or JUST autocross, please let me

know. The AX/TT chair is responsible for talking to the track owners

and locking in dates, designing the courses, and the general flow

of the events. You can talk to Bryan Bell if you need more info to

decide. It needs to be someone who can commit to coming to nearly

all the events though.

Parade is less than 2 weeks away, as I write this. All the planning is

in high gear. We are trying to find all the stuff we want to see on the

way there and on the way back. Trying to find parking for your tow

vehicle and trailer can be problematic. It would be nice if we could

just drive the car out, but 2 weeks worth of gear for 2 adults and a

10 year old just won't fit in a 911. Not like we pack, anyway! If you

are interested in finding out more about Parade, and couldn't make

it this year (or any past years), come to our Post Parade Dinner

Social - those of us that went can fill you in on all the details as to

why on earth you would spend a week of your vacation doing all

these crazy things.

Wendy and I are going to do the Parade Rally for the first time this

year. We have done local rallies quite a few times, but this will be the

first one at the national level. Teri Davis did a good job with her

recent rally school getting us ready for it. So hopefully we will make

her proud!

Another fun event coming up is the Murder Mystery Dinner. This

one will be at the Old Mill Inn near Fair Park. It will probably fill up,

so sign up soon. Details are on www.clubregistration.net. I missed

the last one, and sure don't want to miss this one! Go sign up today!

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

Maverick Minutes

by Charlie Davis

MR board meeting on June 5, 2007…In

attendance: James Shoffit, Bob Bianconi,

Mark Gluck, Dennis Chamberlin, Bob

Kuykendahl, Christy Dominick, Denny Payne,

Lisa Steele, Tracey Gross, Joe McGlohen, Bryan

Bell, Joel Nannis, Charlie Davis, Teri Davis, Jan

Mayo, & Wendy Shoffit.

James called the meeting to order at 7:01. It only lasted a few

minutes, though. He reported that there was an “incident”

involving two cars at the CR. We sent cards. The Steward's report

was good. Rick Randall was at the CR, sporting his “big head.”

PCA National has asked us to host the 2008 Winter Board

Meeting. The schedule is TBD.

Joe had a couple of problems, even before it was his time to have

problems. First, he noticed that the plate of cookies (being passed

around to sweeten up everyone's attitude) was not all cookies;

there were some brownies, too. This was unacceptable. Next, he

asked everyone to, “check yourself for standing water.” Turns out,

he was the only one with a pet mosquito and we left it that way.

Bob B. asked if we wanted a Fall Concours. We did. Decided that

Oct 13th was best date. There is an Charity AX at TMS on the

14th. May turn this into a Roundup weekend? Bob plans a school

for judges prior to this event.

Mark has insurance for all pending events.

Dennis said the last Happy Hour was good, but the service was

slow. The next Happy Hour will be at Champps…then Rio

Mambo in July.

Bob K. and Dennis discussed the 2006 audit. We authorized up to

$1000 for this. It will not be an “official” audit. They will consult

with Bob Knight, who has done several audits in the past.

Bob reported that the May Minutes had an error: the -$105,000

figure should be -$15,000.

He further reported that the profit from the CR will be lower

than last year, but the DE profit will be up. He doesn't know the

final numbers yet. We discussed the perception that in general, all

CR attendance was down lately. An exception is that the bigname

track events are doing well.

Christy has goodies, some of which is new stuff. She continues to

add the new items to the web site. She reported that Denny will

have a “banner ad” up soon on the front page. Christy proposed

that we have small raffles at all our events. She and Joel, working

with Keith Olcha, Sponsorship Chair, will organize that.

Denny made a name badge. Sent it around the table for comments.

He needs a web editing tool. Not Dreamweaver (too

expensive and complex), but will look into some other options.

He will get with James off-line and discuss this.

Lisa was speechless at what she said to Denny! Recovered quickly

after the laughter stopped. She apologized for “dropping the

ball” at the CR. We explained that there was no broken ball. She

has some new ads in the pipeline.

Tracey reported that we made money at Cinco de May at Mayo's.

No specific number was quoted. The next social event will be the

Father's Day Picnic. Registration cutoff is next Tuesday. Joel will

(again) handle the Wash & Shine/Concours. We need to make a

$1400 deposit for the Murder Mystery Dinner on Saturday,

August 4. We can get this deposit back if registration for the event

is low. We need 40 people to attend to be financially viable. The

board decided to approve this, since the last Murder Mystery

Dinner was well attended.

Tracey also reminded us that Founders Day will be at the Austin

Ranch. She is still looking for a Holiday Party site.

Joe stated that we have a policy of only having safe events.

Nobody argued with him.

Bryan agreed with Joe about safety. This was the first time this

has happened and bodes well for future Board Meetings.

Bryan noted that attendance is still down at events. The latest

double Time Trial weekend had 29 drivers on both days. That was

the bad news. The good news is that attendance by ladies is up

(about 27% of the total was ladies)! And many of the most experienced

ladies were not in attendance.

Bryan also mentioned that there will be a “bounce house” and

horseshoes at the Father's Day Picnic.

Joel asked for prizes for the Father's Day Concours.

Joel reported that locally, we have 1197 active members. National

says we have 1088 active and 828 affiliate for a total of 1914 members.

Charlie asked for a new (5th) member of the AX/TT Rules

Committee. Mike Lockas was nominated and approved.

Teri said she only has 3 people signed up for the Rally School and

the cutoff is one day away. She estimates that she needs a minimum

of 10 entrants to break even. We discussed this and agreed

that she would have to cancel the event if more people don't register.

Jan, as usual, asked for more articles. She asked for a key to the

storage unit. Joe said he has some. Charlie also needs a key.

Wendy told us that Jan will not be Slipstream Editor in 2008. We

need a new victim, er, volunteer. In order to help with the workload,

she wants to get a Mac laptop for the Assistant Editor. Also,

Kevin Hardison is stepping back a bit at Ussery's. A different

employee there will handle our newsletter. This may mean we

have to do more of the final layout? We discussed switching from

Quark to something like InDesign to make these jobs easier.

Wendy reported that we collected $336 for our charity at the

recent CR.

Teri said she needs to “retire” from being the Rally Chair. Her

national Parade duties are taking all her time.

James adjourned at 8:44 PM.

Rain, Shine or Oil?

by Clint Blackman

Sunday morning, June 3rd, started with dark, almost black rain

clouds interrupted by bright flashes of lightning and loud claps of

thunder. Then the rain came...and it rained hard. But as quickly

as the rain came...it passed! So by noon, 14 “storm fearless”

Mavericks met in Mesquite and we took off in eight cars to see the East

Texas Oil Museum in Kilgore, Texas.

The storms cleared and it was a beautiful day for a Porsche

Sunday Drive. We opted for a direct route and took Interstate 20 east.

I-20 is a fine highway with ample places to stop for “potty breaks.” It

is always amazing to see how our Sunday Drive cars always draw a

crowd of car lovers wherever we stop. As we drove east, the forests of

East Texas were in spring time “prime.” In two short hours we

arrived in Kilgore to venture into the world of oil production and

exploration.

We were greeted by the museum director who conducted a personal

tour for our group...her son owned a Porsche...so we got special

treatment! We started with a

movie that helped both the children

and adults learn about

where petroleum comes from

and how it was found in the

1930s. Oil, the lifeblood of our

cars, is really quite difficult to

come by. Afterwards, in a few

short steps, we were taken back

to the 1930s when Kilgore went

from a population of 800 people

to 15,000 overnight. The Daisy

Bradford No. 3 oil well “came in”

and it was “a gusher.” We “talked” with the editor of the Gusher

Gazette newspaper, stopped by the Boom Town barber shop, the post

office and the bank. The banker told us about “black gold” and the

riches that were right underneath our feet!

movie at the Boom Town Cinema.

Looking for Hannah Montana?

We even caught a

After the tour we all had a new appreciation for the “wildcatters”

and “roughnecks” who produced one of the largest oil fields the

world has ever seen. We adjourned to the finest barbeque stand in

Texas...Bodacious Barbeque! And after a meal of those fine ribs and

sliced beef sandwiches...no one argued with me.

Our next Sunday Drive is special...we are going to ride the Texas State

Railroad! October 7, 2007 will be an all day affair! Picnic lunch and a

Maverick party in the Club Car...Don't miss it.

From the Tech Q&A - Cayenne Won’t Unlock!

by Peter Smith, 997/Cayenne Tech Advisor

Question: A friend returned to her Cayenne after work today

and it won't unlock. The remote on the key won't unlock it,

and sticking the key in the lock won't work either.

I suggested that the car battery is probably dead, but she says

the little flashing LEDs are still on. Of course, they don't take

much power, so I still think the car battery is dead.

Any other thoughts about what may be wrong? What would

be the procedure to gain access to the car? Don't the 996's have a

place to hook up a 9V battery in case this happens? Is there a similar

procedure for the Cayenne?

Answer: It sounds like the remote died, if the battery is going

dead there would have been a display in the dash telling you

that the remote battery is low. Now why the key won't open

the door is another issue, I think the key is not for that car. Any

Cayenne key that is programed for that Cayenne will work in the

car. You walk up to the car, push the button and the car unlocks, you

then get in and start up and go. The ignition switch assembly in the

dash works with any Cayenne key as long as it is programmed for it.

We have had used cars with different keys that all unlocked the car

and then started it up, but you only use the key lock in the door

when the battery is dead or the remotes don't work. You might need

AAA to open the door for you or see if there is another key to try

and open the car.

Peter Smith - PCA WebSite - 1/19/2007

Additional comments by Tom Charlesworth, PCA National Tech

Advisor:

Peter,

It turns out that you are exactly right. This Cayenne was

delivered with three keys. One of which doesn’t match the others.

The one oddball key does not work in the doors. The other two

keys work just fine. Just by sheer luck of the draw, the key that my

friend has carried with her for the last year or so was the wrong

one.

Tom

When you buy a used Cayenne, unlock the drivers door manually

with each key to be sure.........

Caution: Club Race Slippery When Wet

by Colin Graidage

Tuesday morning, 11:00am, the car is off the trailer and washed,

the Jeep is unpacked, the laundry is in and another Maverick

Club Race is a memory. It has just started raining again.

Racers came from all over Texas, from Louisiana, Oklahoma

and Kansas. I am sure they had studied the weather forecasts. I

expect, like us, they had searched for the most optimistic source

and convinced themselves, and each other, that a 70% chance of

scattered or isolated storms in Cresson obviously meant they

would be anywhere but over MSR.

As it turned out they were right and wrong. The weather played

a big part for a lot of the weekend but all of the races and all but one

of the qualifying sessions were run on a dry or drying track.

My own weekend got off to a questionable start on Friday

afternoon. Loading cars on trailers has never been a favorite job.

I worry as the horizon swings skyward and the car shoots up and

on to the trailer. Friday's exercise was carried out in pouring rain

and without proper consideration of the potential for disaster.

Wet tires, wet ramps and, worse yet, wet wooden ramp extensions

Graduates of the Rookie School

combined to get the car moving sideways as the sky came into

view. It ended with the car diagonally across the trailer and with

the steering at opposite lock. On and safe - just.

Later in the afternoon, the rain stopped and early arrivals

had a dry interval to set up big rigs, RVs, tents and trailers. The

paddock began to look like a race event and rang with the sounds

of unsilenced race cars. MSR has some great parking areas that

provide good views of the action, good access to the facilities and

that drain well even in the

greatest downpours. Arrive

early, get a good spot

seemed to be the order of

the day. It was nice to see

some old friends and meet

some new people.

Bryan Henderson’s

chalk talk for newcomers to

MSR and for our new racers

went well. He said he gave

away his best secrets of how

to get around the track

quickly. But did he? We will

never really know. Dave

Maynard, the National

Steward for the event,

gave four drivers attending

the race school and

three drivers from other

race series their orientation.

He stressed safety,

the necessary skills and

the need to live together

on the race track. I think I

could hear the rapid beating

of at least four hearts

as Dave gave them their

Colin ready to race

instructions and they

anticipated what was ahead of them.

Practice on Saturday morning was a wash-out for many of

us. Those intrepid Mavericks that went out came back with

lurid tales of slides and spins. One of our drivers was on his way

back to “black flag” after a 360 degree spin when he managed a

better yet 720. What was he practicing? For his efforts he got the

Workers Choice award.

Practice after lunch was dry for the red group but wet for the

whites. For the red group read older or less powerful cars, and for

white read fire breathing monsters. The times recorded in this

practice set starting positions for the combined practice starts

and fun race. The older and less powerful cars proved quicker in

the dry conditions than the monsters in the wet. There we were at

the front of the grid all in a neat little row with all of our cup car

friends roaring, coughing and spluttering at the back of the pack.

Oh the ignominy of it. As we gridded I thought “I hope they

know these are only practice starts.” And what about our new

drivers, what were they about to practice?

From reports after the race it seems there was considerable

added excitement for the drivers of the older cars as one after

another these leviathans roared their way to the front of the field.

Who knew their brakes make such a strange metallic noise when

applied in earnest close to a helmeted ear on the way into

Rattlesnake? After you, no, after you, I insist.

It was a particularly long fun race

and it must have been great to watch

these very quick cars clawing their way

back through the field. It was good practice

for the combined Enduro and everyone

seemed to enjoy the format.

Mercifully, we all qualified in the same

conditions for the Enduro so our big

buddies were all at the front of the grid

for the start.

The feature sprint races were run in

separate groups. The racing was close in

the middle of the red pack but Jim

Buckley was in a class by himself, winning

overall in his F car. Bryan

Henderson came in second and Colin

Graidage third, both in F cars. Youri

Bebic was the class winner in G, John

Bicknell in E, Mike Brodigan in

SP3,Rusty Tilton in GT5S, Albert Graci in I and Richard Kassel in

J. There were many tales of heroism and skill from within the

pack once the race was over. Some no doubt true and some imagined.

Our new drivers all did well and appeared to enjoy their

baptisms of fire.

White run group consisted of cars in classes C, D and all the

GT classes. In the white group feature sprint race, Glen Gatlin was

the overall winner in his 1999 GT3 Cup car. Second place overall

was Gerald Isbell in his 2007 Cup car and third place overall was

a fast drive by new PCA racer Keith Verges. Keith is a long time

member of Motorsport ranch and a consistent podium achiever

in NASA's Spec Miata series. George Abdulla won D-stock closely

contested against Steve Watkins and Bob Dunn won C-stock.

Alan Smith won GT3S, Bruce Busby won GT2S and West Dillard

won GT1S. Lew Boucher won GTP2 and Wayne Brown won

GT4S.

The Red group mini sprint race went well with close racing

in the middle of the pack after a hectic and interesting start.

Polesitter Gerald Isbell (110 GTC4) leads the pack in Big Bend at the start of the white group mini sprint.

Thanks to Boardwalk for

their wonderful sponsorship!

Pace Car Driver and Navigator Tom Snodgrass and Bill Dawson

In the white group Mini sprint we witnessed the worst racing

incident the club has seen in years. Two cars collided at the

exit of Big Bend and we were very sad to see Bob Dunn taken to

the hospital by CareFlight helicopter. Our thoughts and best

wishes are with him and his family as he recovers. Brooke Van

Horn, the driver of the other car was able to walk away from the

accident. He was badly bruised but otherwise unhurt. We are so

grateful for their survival from this high speed impact and wish

them both a speedy and complete recovery.

The response from the tower, corner workers, EMS and

recovery teams was excellent and everyone at the event was grateful

for their assistance to our injured drivers.

Despite this unfortunate accident the Dinner and Awards

ceremony went ahead. We enjoyed an excellent dinner from 'On

the Border'. Joel Nannis presented awards to class winners,

thanks to Lee Wilkins for providing the awards and Keith Olcha

presented some tremendous raffle prizes.

Monday dawned with heavy gray clouds over Cresson. The

weather seemed determined to dampen

the spirits with a 70% forecast of

rain. However, as the morning wore on

it seemed we might miss the rain and

so it proved.

The mornings combined Minisprint

race set grid positions for the

afternoon's combined Enduro. We

were grateful to be allowed back to our

proper places on the grid with cup cars

at the front and we, mere mortals, safely

towards the back. Much of the mini

sprint was driven under double yellow

as first one then another car ended in

the mud and had to be rescued.

The main Enduro racing was spirited

and individual competitions kept the

larger than expected crowd of spectators

engaged. The race winner was Jay

Walker, Barry Moore was second and

Dan Wright third. The race was a rousing success with no yellow

flags despite some of our racers fighting their way through the mud

off the racing surface. We listened later with great amusement to

stories of adventures in the long grass.

An hour is a long time to drive a race car at full tilt and by

the completion of the race I was ready for the checker. Once back

in the pits there was a lot of back slapping and more tall tales

about what had happened. Helmet off, I listened to my car pinging

as it cooled down and enjoyed the smells of hot tires, hot

brakes and hot engine. Nothing much compares to what we get to

do with these cars and with these people. The whole thing is a

privilege.

Now, to thank some people for making it all possible. The

Race Committee headed by Joel Nannis and Bill Miller.

Wonderful arrangements and all executed without a hitch. Joel

was tireless the whole weekend, seemed to be everywhere and

always working. Thanks especially to the following people who all

contributed to the smooth running of the event. Registration was

in the hands of Wendy Shoffit who also produced the program,

Grid coordinator was Bob Benson, Grid controller was Jan Mayo,

Safety and Corner workers were under the watchful eye of Joe

McGlohen, Hospitality was managed by Lisa Steele and was

seamless, James Shoffit and Bob Glowacki assisted with timing

and scoring, Mary Coney was in the tower, Wayne Brown was our

medical liaison, Keith Olcha arranged sponsorship. Ben Witry

was the Stewards assistant, Cliff Blackshear was our Lead

Technician, Mark Steele and Tom Snodgrass were our Tech

Coordinators. Tom, by the way, drove the pace car and due to the

wet conditions had to exit the track at the pit entrance rather than

the usual spot at Tombstone. That meant Tom was in the firing

line when the green flag dropped. Never has the pace car gone so

fast. Bryan Henderson, Keith Olcha and John Sandusky were

Club Race and Drivers education consultants and Christy

Dominick was the voice of Radio MSR.

The team from PCA National was Dave Maynard, Chief

Steward, Donna Amico, Scrutineer and Cathy Crosby, Timing and

Scoring. Zone

5 rep is Caren

Cooper. A big

thank you to

the National

team and to

all of our volunteers.

If I

have not

mentioned

you, and

should have, I

Dave Maynard conducting one of many meetings

apologize.

A big thank you to our corner workers who stood out in the

rain at corner stations. Thank you for taking care of us. Thank

you also to the emergency personnel. We couldn't do this without

you and thank you once again for your care and attention to our

injured drivers.

Thank you to our sponsors. Again this year our main sponsor

was Boardwalk Auto Group. Boardwalk has been a wonderful

supporter of PCA racing and our Maverick Region. Thank you.

Boardwalk Auto Group was joined by a great group of sponsors

PCA Club Racing is only one part of PCA's driving opportunity.

This weekend we had eighty one solo qualified Drivers Education

cars sharing the track and the weather. It is not too much of a stretch

between DE and Club Racing and we hope to welcome many of our

current DE drivers into the Club Race fold in the future. When you

think you can, you can, and we hope you will.

One last thing, it was good to see Steve Watkins back racing

after his horrific plane crash. Steve won the award for best prepared

race car. Good to have you back. That's about it. See you all

next year and remember, when you think all is lost, gas, gas, gas.

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,

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.

Running the Loops

by James Milton

Iwas really looking forward to AX#4 at

Pennington Field. My first Autocross in 14

years was at Pennington Field last year. This

year with a few events under my belt and plenty of

good advice from fellow members, with whom I've

become acquainted, I looked forward to the event even

more. In the days leading up to the event, I was a bit

concerned about the possibility of rain over the weekend

and what the effect would be on the course. When

Bryan Bell posted on the mailing list “The course is

called “Loop-E” come on down and find out why that

is!” I was a little concerned. A technical course in the

rain had me thinking the worst. I wouldn't be able to

see, the glass would fog up, I won't be able to remember

the course and on and on. When the hyperventilating

stopped, I remembered that my very first run in

an autocross was in the rain and it wasn't so bad. It was

a lot of fun. That was 20 years ago.

It was cool and very cloudy on Sunday and like a kid on

Christmas Eve, I couldn't wait to see what kind of track layout

Bryan had in store for us. What I found was a course that was very

cleverly laid out with many interesting loops especially the first

set. I walked the course twice hoping to find that perfect line and

I thought I

had a good

idea of what

to do

I decided

to take my

first run slowly

to get better

sense of the

layout and see

just how tight

those turns

were. During

Clint Blackman is all smiles!

that slow

casual run, I

knocked over a cone. Little did I know, this would be a recurring

theme throughout the day. After I finished the first run, having

assaulted a cone for good measure, I figured that was going to be

about as bad as it would get so I was ready to dial it up a bit for

the second run. Watching the 914's doing their thing out on the

course between my runs was great. I couldn't believe how folks

like Kevin Hardison could get through the first element, the

“Inverted Treble Clef”, and be in perfect position to get back on

the straight. Seeing the 944's taking the large “Big Hoop” loop so

smoothly on the second half of the course was an inspiration, too;

a testament to the drivers' skill. But I drive a 911 so I was keen to

see what the Shoffits and Bob Kuykendall were doing in their

respective 911's. I remembered the wisdom imparted to me by

Wendy at the previous event. Slow in, fast out, be smooth and

look ahead. On my second run, I cut 6 seconds off and didn't hit

any cones. I'm feeling kinda good at this point so I decide to “go

James giving a wide berth to that cone!

for it” some more on run #3. I started strong from the line and

turned in aggressively like Fernando Alonso, finessed it carefully

through the first half of the course and managed to successfully

navigate the “E-Loops” on the backside. Making good time heading

into the “Big Hoop” loop, I turned in. The car took a set and

proceeded to travel along the prescribed arc. Problem is, it was

the wrong arc and I clipped another cone!! Ugh, two in one

day.What is this? Concentration shot. Must focus and get the lap

done. Bingo, I got a 64.73 plus that darn cone. Yes, a respectable

time but I knew there was still more left…That would have to

wait until the next session.

We switched to working and I had an excellent time hanging

out with James Shoffit at station two, watching our fellow

racers. I love working the course almost as much as driving it

because you get to see how others do it up close. That black 911

Turbo was amazing to watch as it gobbled up the track warping

from element to element. Michael Vasey, extremely fast in the

STI, defied at least one of Newton's laws of motion and missed

cones we thought were goners and Jeff Hermann in the 912 was

driving so smoothly he made it look easy. The ladies class was

populated with some great talent too. Tannia Dobbins and

Andrea Bell in their Boxsters looked great attacking the loops

with great verve.

After watching all those great runs, I was a bit anxious, ready

to attack the course and get my 64.xx with no cones. Run #4 got

me my best time in the competition of 65.576. Respectable, but

not what I wanted so I go back out for run 5 with a vengeance. I

feel like I'm making good time until I get to the last part of the

“Big Hoop” loop when I press a little too hard and got the front

end sliding….you guessed it. Right into a cone, dead center. I didn't

just hit it. The car ate it up and it wouldn't let go and I dragged

it to the staging area. I had to endure the embarrassment and with

that, some good natured ribbing. I've never hit so many cones in

one event in my life. No worries, it was great fun but I'll probably

get placed on an “Orange Cone Offenders” list somewhere and be

barred from ever doing a slalom again. Life goes on.

It turned out to be a great day. We didn't get a bit of rain, finished

up early enough to do some fun runs, got to see some great

cars and hang out with some really cool people. Special thanks to

Bryan for designing a unique, challenging and fun course. With the

first half of the Autocross season in the books, I'm looking forward

to the next event in Mineral Wells and I hope to see you there.

Happy Hour at Bavarian Grill

by Dennis Chamberlain

We had a good turnout for our May 17th happy

hour at Bavarian Grill, including several new

members and/or first time happy hour attendees.

The best part, though, was this story about Kelly Loy, one of our

newest members.

Kelly (who had

never really thought

about owning a

Porsche) went to Santa

Fe to visit a friend she

hadn’t seen in about

Kelly Loy and Tracey Gross

seven years. Her

friend had a 1990 911

that needed some

service, so she asked

Kelly to follow her to

Albuquerque, leave the 911 there for service, and return to Santa

Fe in the other car. Kelly got to drive the 911 on the 50 mile journey,

and even though she hadn’t driven a car with a manual transmission

in 25 years, it came back to her very quickly. She liked

the car. She liked the car a lot. In fact, she loved the car.

After dropping the car off, they just happened to go to a

Roadrunner Region brunch, where Kelly was talking about how

much fun she just

had driving her

friend’s Porsche.

The Roadrunner

VP pulled out the

region’s newsletter

with a picture of a

2002 996 that was

for sale by one of

the other

Roadrunner members.

Kelly made

Kay and Alan Leibel tickling Tinker Edwards up her mind to

buy it - sight unseen (other than the picture). The next day she

was scheduled to fly back to Dallas, and the owner of the 996

brought it to the airport for her to test drive, and you guessed it -

she bought it and drove it back to Dallas. She didn’t even take her

luggage to the airport because she had every intention of driving

that Porsche back to Dallas. All this happened in only 24 hours.

I think the word is “spontaneous”! Anyone who moves this fast

has to be a natural for

the track. I have a

feeling we’ll be hearing

a lot more from

Kelly.

Oh yes – for our

July 19th happy hour

we’re back to Rio

Mambo in Colleyville.

Don’t forget their

seafood quesadillas!

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!
