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
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 - email@example.com.
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
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!

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
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
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
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
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.
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
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.

their wonderful sponsorship!

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
Photos by John Sandusky
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
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.

PCA Club Racing is only one part of PCA's driving opportunity.
This weekend we had eighty one solo qualified Drivers Education

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

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 take my
first run slowly
to get better
sense of the
layout and see
just how tight
Clint Blackman is all smiles!
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
Lisa Steele giving pointers to Denise Sanchez

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
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
VP pulled out the
with a picture of a
2002 996 that was
for sale by one of
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
Oh yes – for our
July 19th happy hour
we’re back to Rio
Mambo in Colleyville.

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
We’d love to hear from you!
