©2015 Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of all traffic laws at all times.
Not for the faint of anything.
Like every car we've made, the GT3 began with a vision. A vision to create not only a pure sports car, but a worthy heir to
our racing legacy. With an enhanced 7-speed PDK transmission delivering a 50% reduction in shift throw, and new,
standard rear axle steering for greater stability at speed, the vision has been undeniably realized. Whether experienced on
the track or the street, the exhilaration of its driver is the same. Felt in every instant response of the throttle. And every
corner taken. Porsche. There is no substitute.

Shifting Gears: Activities During Summer Hiatus
By Jim Falgout, Region President
We keep on growing. Our
membership has gone over
2,400. We were at 2,434 at
the end of May. That is great, but it
also means we need more volunteers
to help make membership in your club
a good experience for everyone. Yes, I
am starting out with an appeal for volunteers.
In fact, in early June, I learned that PCA has
created a new committee, Social Media. If you think you
would enjoy working in that area, please let me know so
I can get you connected with the national chairperson.
YOUR CLUB WANTS YOU . . . to get
involved. You will really be glad you did.
By the time you read this, we will have
had our Concours-within-a-Concours at
the Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas.
That is really nice venue, tree-covered on
grass. Also, PCA will have had its annual Porsche Parade.
If you have not
either of these,
I strongly recommend
do so next
year. Parade is
held at a different
every year (Jay
For anyone who is considering attending a board meeting,
and I encourage you to do so. We will not have a
board meeting in July, because so many of our board
members will have just returned from Parade. We will
resume board meetings in August.
While we do not have many events in July and August
because of the heat and vacations, we will have our social
events and an autocross each month. We also have a
special event on Saturday, August
Even with heat
and vacations in
July and August,
we will have our

We had an excellent display of
photos taken by members of
their Porsches on exhibit at last
year’s Founders’ Day, so if you are
inclined to take pictures of your
Porsche or others, this workshop
could be very beneficial.

We will resume our Sunday/Saturday Drives and
our Drivers’ Education events in September. Hope you
can enjoy one or both of those.
Mav of the Month
Every month it is a challenge to select a Mav of the
Month. We have so many members that give so much to
make our club the success it is. This month I have selected
a member that has been dedicated to making our
Drivers’ Education events a success. He has been in
charge of the coaches. Having good coaches and
enough coaches is an ongoing challenge and he has
met it. John Sandusky has done an excellent job and is
one of the reasons our DE program is so successful.
Next time you are
at a DE, be sure
to thank John for
his efforts. We
he has made
and continues to
make to the DE
Sandusky is our

Your Name Here!
Around the Bend...
By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor
As the temperature rises in July
and August, the number of
club activities tends to diminish
a bit as some driving events are just
more pleasurable when the sun is less
That doesn’t mean your club or your
Porsche activities need to hibernate
however, just the opposite is true. Now is the perfect
time to take advantage of catching up with with some
overdue Porsche participation!
You might start with honing up on your online
presence. In addition to our club website that provides
an immense amount of pertinent information
as well as historical archives at http://mav.pca.
org, we have a very active Facebook community at
http://facebook.com/groups/mavpca and a daily Twitter
feed at http://twitter.com/MaverickPCA.
As mentioned in my article from the last issue,
Slipstream is providing more links and QR codes
to information online that extends the reading
and visual components of many articles and
events. You’ll get lots of extra content by using
these online options.
And while you are online, why not sharpen your Porsche
trivia skills by challenging yourself to either know, or
find, the answer to the many interesting questions Jerry
DeFeo provides each month. You can find past Trivia
quizzes under the Events tab on the club website.
Need another indoor club activity for August? Check
out page 13 for info on the upcoming Photo Workshop
2 to heighten your skills.
This issue also welcomes two new advertisers to support
the publishing of Slipstream. You can learn more
about them on pp. 26-27. Please consider supporting all
of our advertisers when possible!
Remember that our club is planning to publish a
printed (no electronic versions will be available) member
directory this fall. If you DO NOT want your name
and address information included be sure to follow the
steps listed in the ad on page 7 of this issue.
As far as what’s “around the bend”, our August issue
will include photos and information from the
big Autos in the Park Concours event that occurred
in early June as well as an up close look
at PCA Parade activities in which many of our
members will have participated. This 60th PCA
Anniversary is something worth celebrating!
Gimme a Minute: June Board Meeting
By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary June 3, 2015
was started by President
Jim Falgout at
7:03 PM, Concours
Chair Andy Kay
needed to give his
report shortly before that. He said
that this coming weekend (June 7)
was the Tenth Annual Autos in the
Park Concours d’Elegance at the
Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas.
He will have similar classes as last
time. In addition to the medallions
to give out, he had two lovely trophies
to award. Multiple car clubs
will be represented at the show in
addition to Porsches.
Jim then gave the report for the
absent Membership Chairs, Tom
and Susan Froehlich. Our region is
up from last month by 29 primary
members and 38 total members! We
are now at 1,559 primary and 2,434
total members. PCA National now
has a Social Media Chair to help
regions navigate this growing trend.
Vice President Gareth Maurice reported
that the insurance has been
revised for the recently rescheduled
Rancho Sereno Saturday Drive, and
all other events have been covered
Drivers’ Education Registrar Wendy
Shoffit reported that the last DE
event had low attendance, probably
due to it being on Memorial Day
Weekend, and people had other
plans. Despite the torrential downpours
in the evenings, the event was
still a great learning lesson. Fortunately,
it didn’t rain much during
the day, but we still had water across
the track and tons of mud to deal
with. The next event in September
should be drier. As a help to Slipstream
and the photography, she
created and had printed business
cards with instructions how to submit
quality photos for Slipstream.
Event chairs can hand the cards out
to people they see taking photos at
PR Chair Linda Bambina said that
there are about 18 couples going
to the Porsche Parade this year in
French Lick, Indiana. She is hosting
a pre-Parade dinner Tuesday, June 9
to help people communicate about
routes, etc. She is excited that we
entered Robyn and Travis Howard
as candidates for Family of the Year.
*crossing fingers* She is also always
looking for enthusiastic people to
help the club and assist/take over
Editor Jim Hirsch said he will be
out of town next month when he
would normally finish and submit
Slipstream, so he needed to move
back the deadline to the 8th of the
month. He is working on setting up
a photo bucket or similar to have
people view the photos that were
not able to make it into Slipstream.
Continuing to work on the calendar
idea, he had a sample to show us
that was great quality and should be
a reasonable expense. More later.
Co-Editor Carey Spreen has been
culling out his collection of Slipstreams
from the past few years. He
will preserve some for archives, but
recycle the rest.
Treasurer Rich Solomon reported
that we have about $129K in the
bank, thanks to some rebates from
National and other successful
events. He is still working to settle
up the finances from the Club Race
at COTA. Our last DE came out a
little ahead, which is good. He will
be working on billings for the next
Slipstream advertising year.
Guest Jouni Hiltunen was back.
He thoroughly enjoyed this last DE
and appreciated his instructor. He
would like to help out with the DE
or Autocross program, if he could.
Sunday Drive Chair Tom Martin
told us that the Rancho Sereno
event was postponed because many
of the roads were under water. We
fortunately dodged a bullet with the
catering, as someone else was able
to buy the barbecue meat that we
had guaranteed to buy. The tour
was rescheduled for June 20. He has
further drives planned through the
fall. Keep watching Slipstream and
the online Maverick calendar.
Guest Cindy Bliss was back. She
has a local singles group and is
working to suggest possible future
Monthly dinner social locations,
possibly in Plano. Stephanie Ho is
glad to get new ideas. New guest
Brenda Dranow was in attendance
to observe. She would love to get
more involved and volunteer in the
Monthly Social Chair Stephanie
Ho said that we had nearly 120 people
who attended the event at Lavendou.
She was able to fill vacated
RSVP slots with others on the waiting
list, even a few hours before the
event. The owner gave us the entire
restaurant in the end, for a wonderful
dinner and a generous discount.
There were over 60 cars there! She
is working to find the right German
restaurant for the Sept or Oct
event. Coming in June is Love &
War in Texas in Grapevine and we
return to the Hilton Garden Inn in
July. August will be at Wildwood in
Jim Falgout reminded everyone
that there is no board meeting in
July. Before we adjourned at 8:00,
he presented the Maverick of the
Month to John Sandusky, Chief Driving
Instructor for our DE Program,
for his years of work making our DEs
such a success. Thanks, John!

Living the Dream: PCA Driver Education Events
By Bob Kramer
Some of my best times have occurred
on a racetrack. In my
early years, I was nuts for motorcycles
and drag racing. These passions
culminated in my campaigning
a self-built 1132cc Kawasaki Pro Stock
drag bike. I won the CDBA (Colorado
Drag Bike Association), “Fast 8” title
my first year with it.
My interests eventually went
toward road-racing, where
over the years I campaigned
a Honda MT125 R2, a Honda
CBR 900RR, and finally a
Ducati 916, licensed as an Expert
in WSMC (Willow Springs Pro Stock drag bike
When I moved from CA to TX, I decided it was time
to switch from motorcycles to cars. Can you imagine my
surprise when I was told by the local tracks that they required
you to be pointed by in order to pass someone?
And then only in a straight? I’d never heard of such a
thing. It put me off getting involved for several years.
Eventually, the draw to be on a racetrack was too
much to ignore. Having a new 2014 Cayman S made
the yearning all that much
worse. I finally gave in and
got a membership to Eagles
Canyon Raceway. Being retired
allowed me to enjoy the
Cayman S at ECR
track on many a Thursday
and Friday where I had almost
exclusive use of the track. I was in heaven except
for the missing element of competition.
That’s when people started telling me about PCA DE
events. Again though, the controlled passing thing just
didn’t figure. On top of that, several people told me
I’d have to spend a lot of time in the Green (beginner)
group, even though I had racing experience. I decided
to pass on getting involved.
Strangely though, I kept hearing about how much fun
it was, even from people who were racers. How could
this be since it isn’t racing? I decided the only way to
find out was to go to an event and check it out myself.
The first DE I attended was as a spectator at MotorSport
Ranch - Cresson. Most everyone was friendly, talkative
and quite upbeat. It was hard not to notice the stupid
grins many people had on their faces. I took that as a
Photos courtesy of the Author
Long about then, the GT3 I had been lusting after finally
arrived at the dealership. With this car, I figured
some driver education could be beneficial, even if I had
to get it in the beginner group. So I registered, and was
pleased to see there was room to include my experience
in the “driver profile” section. I hoped it might help
me move through the ranks more quickly. It did: when
I received registration confirmation, I saw I had been
placed in the Blue group.
The GT3’s odometer showed 1940 miles when I got to
the grid for my first session. Perfect! It’s broken in and
ready to rock and roll. My instructor, David Lindner,
arrived and introduced himself. His demeanor, knowledge
and experience quickly put me at ease. We shared
an intercom system he brought so we could communicate
each session. On track,
he made suggestions that
were quite helpful, especially
when I actually made
the adjustments. “This
is excellent” kept going
through my mind. I could
GT3 at MSR
feel a stupid grin forming on my face as each session
progressed. What a hoot!
David was fantastic. He even took me out in his car a
couple sessions to better show me how to improve. The
better I did, the easier it got, and the more at ease I
was in the car. Soon we were cracking jokes and having
a great time, even as the speeds had increased significantly.
I was having one of the greatest times ever -- and I
got promoted to Blue Solo during the second session of
the second day. Why hadn’t I started doing this sooner?
It turns out the passing restrictions aren’t as bad as I
expected. Catching the car in front of you is a lot of
what racing is all about anyway, and there’s plenty of
opportunity for that. Not having to worry about some
nut job trying to pass you at the wrong time is also pretty
nice, especially if you like your car. The best part of it is
being able to experience your limits and your car’s limits
in a safe and helpful environment. In that respect,
If anyone is sitting on the fence trying to decide if DEs
are worthwhile, let me assure you that they are. Consider
this: you get two days of track time, complete with
instruction when desired, meals, and oft times a T-shirt,
for less than $350. Just try and find a deal like that anywhere
else. On top of that, you’ll likely have about $1000
worth of fun and meet a lot of fantastic people too. You
might even have one of the best days of your life.

The owner was
willing to drive in during the day
because the brake lights worked.
However, he was somewhat uncomfortable
with using hand signals for
turns. I hooked up the trusty PIWIS

processors for what had failed. I
fully expected to find an issue with
the front end control unit. Nope.
Everybody was happy with each
other. No faults. Huh? Moved to

and attempted to turn on the headlights.
Nope. Not happening. Sat

Autocross Update: Mirrorcross at Mineral Wells
Equipe Rapide is administering the Maverick Region,
Porsche Club of America, (PCA), autocross
series for 2015 and held a mirrorcross in Mineral
Wells on May 31st. It consisted of two mirror image
courses with a drag race start. Two cars go head to head
at the NHRA style Christmas Tree. After completing the
run they switch sides and run again. Competitors took
8 runs back to back alternating left and right courses
mode.” This is a mode in which all
Porsches arrive, fresh off the transporter
from the factory. Transport
mode deactivates high battery drain
systems and limits the vehicle to 25
mph top speed. Been that way for
years and years. We ran a vehicle
handover routine, which deactivates
transport mode, then re-checked
operation of lights etc. Nothing. We
then gave the owner a loan car and
kept the Macan for more intensive
The next day one of my guys
draws the job and we discuss it. I
told him I had generated a VAL
(Vehicle Analysis Log) already and
performed a handover, etc. We
concluded that disconnecting the
battery, letting all the capacitors
drain off, powering back up, then
erasing faults was worth a try. That
did it. Good grief. The “I forgot Mi-
Photo courtesy of Wikimedia Commons
croprocessor Syndrome” had struck
again. It is a rare occurrence, and
it has been months since I last saw
this type of issue occur. Usually it is
seat heaters or door lock issues. So a
second VAL was generated after repairs,
and all were attached to PQIS
system for Porsche to review. I do
not think it will recur here, as it never
has in the past. Microprocessors
are mindless entities that need some
sort of organic overlord implanted
in the vehicle in my opinion.
Well these things just occasionally
happen. More to come in August.

A Suspension Odyssey Part 7: Brake Caliper Rebuild
By Ash Seidl-Staley
Let me start this month’s article
by offering my thanks to the
rain gods for finally ending
their onslaught of torrential down
pours over North Texas. And although
I am grateful that the lake levels are
now above normal and that the grass
is green, I want to be able to drive
my cars on the weekends soaking up
the sunshine . . . maybe June will be a more promising
month for cruising.
With my literary offering out of the way, let’s begin
with a recap of last month’s article regarding front
brake calipers. As of now, your car should be jacked
up with its front wheels off, the brake calipers should
be unbolted and detached from their brake lines, the
brake pads should have been removed and inspected,
and the caliper’s pistons should be free of their housings,
awaiting you on your workbench. If this checklist
has been completed, it is time to move on to cleaning
and rebuilding the calipers. Contrary to popular belief,
this procedure is not as scary as it might sound. The
hardest part is getting those pesky pistons out of their
housings, but with those out of the way, everything that
follows is gravy.
Start by spreading out the entire caliper assembly on
your work station. The calipers, their associated hardware,
the brake pad clips, and the brake pad push pins
can all be cleaned with a Scotch-Brite pad and conventional
brake cleaner. While scrubbing the caliper, make
sure you get into all of its grooves and recesses. Pay special
attention when addressing the sides of the pistons
and the piston housings, as these areas need to be not
only clean, but smooth and scratch-free in order for the
pistons to slide back in and the assembly not to leak
During the cleaning process take note of the condition
of your calipers; as always, you are looking for scratches,
pitting, and rust. A little surface rust present on the
caliper halves, or even on the piston face itself, is not
detrimental, -- it just means that you will need to scrub a
little harder and longer to polish those cancerous areas.
If the pitting or rust is severe, new calipers will need to
be purchased, or at the very least professionally sandblasted
and re-surfaced at a reputable machine shop.
When all the parts you have been working on are clean
and dry, blow some compressed air through all of the
caliper’s passages to remove any dust, dirt, or debris.
An excellent rust buster is distilled vinegar. Place any
rusty metal part in a cup of vinegar for a few hours,
scrub, rinse, and watch the rust just disappear!
Assembling the calipers is extremely
easy. A brake caliper
rebuild kit, which includes a
new rubber boot, retaining clip,
and inner housing seal, can be
purchased from various auto
parts stores for reasonably cheap
prices. The first step is to coat
the caliper housing and housing
seal with brake fluid. Place the
seal in the inner groove found
within the housing, making sure
it sets properly and is flush with
the rest of the housing surface.

An example of a
Next, coat the piston with clean
brake fluid and then place it onto the opening of its
housing without pushing it in or letting it fall down.
The indentations on the piston face need to be set at
a 20-degree angle to the brake pads. A great diagram
for accomplishing this angle is available for download
and printing on the Pelican Parts Website. Once you
feel the angle is just right, press the piston down into
Next, double check that the angle of the piston was retained,
and repeat the process with the other side of the
caliper. If the angle was lost in the process, the pistons
will need to be blown back out and reset. Remember,
patience during these steps is your only friend.
Now that the pistons are back in, you can reinstall the
rubber boot and retaining clip that came in the rebuild
kit. Reinstall the brake pads, and re-attach the caliper
to the car. The final step with this procedure is to bleed
the brakes. Then just take the car for a short test drive.
Assess the feel of the brakes, and if needed, re-bleed, go
for another spin, and you’re done!
Well, we have finally come to the end of my 914’s front
suspension rebuild. The brakes, discs, shocks, ball joints,
tie rods, boots, and associated hardware have all been
either cleaned or replaced. I can tell you that the car
truly feels phenomenally different. I sense the tightness
in the steering, and can absolutely feel an improvement
in the shock absorber performance while I cruise over
the bumps in the road. Although this particular build
is over, don’t be totally discouraged. My 914 is old and
still has plenty of work that needs to be done to it, not
only to keep it running, but to make it worthy of wearing
the Porsche crest. The rest of my summer is already
booked with body work, valve adjustments, points and
timing inspections, electrical work, and all around tune
ups—and that is just on the 914! My 1987 944 will also
need some attention this year.

Six Countries in Six Days: A Trip to Europe to Remember
By Wendy Shoffit
Photos by the Author
Region was celebrating
board decided to
have a huge year,
finishing off in December with a
Grand Raffle. It was a trip for 2 to
Germany (airfare, 7 night hotel stay,
rental car allowance, Porsche factory
tour, and Porsche museum). It
was to be the trip of a lifetime! We
sold these tickets all year long, and
James and I each bought one ticket
to help support the club. Founders’
Day finally arrived and it was a
glorious night. When it came down
to the drawing, Lisa Huffaker (from
the Hope House) pulled out the
winning ticket. It was MY NAME!
I didn’t even hear her at first, but
when I did… the celebration ensued!
It was a dream come true!
Linda Bambina and the assistance
of Mean Green Travel.
The day finally came and we were
off. James used frequent flyer miles
for first class tickets, and let me
tell you, THAT is the life! It made
the overnight flight to Frankfurt as
pleasant as it could ever be. We arrived
and hit the ground running.
We opted to rent a Porsche Macan S
Diesel for our trek. Oh what a trek it
was. We had 6 countries we wanted
to visit and only 6 days to do it in. We
*really* wanted to get our passports
stamped in the little tiny countries
to give us some travel street cred.
of years. We drove to the tiny little
country of Liechtenstein (Country
#4) and admired the Vaduz Castle.
It was a phenomenal place that the
current royals STILL live in!
From there, we drove on to the next
hotel in Füssen, Germany through a
little spot of Switzerland (Country
#5). Near Füssen was an absolute
MUST SEE - the Neuschwanstein
Castle created by Bavarian King
Ludwig II. Starting in 1868, despite
running out of money, he spent
years building this fantastic castle.
Long story short, he never finished
it, was declared insane, and died the
next day. Look him up for the full
story! It’s fascinating. This castle was
the inspiration for Disney’s Cinderella’s
castle. When we arrived in the
morning for our tour, it had snowed
all night and it was a magical site,
including the horse carriage ride up
to the castle.
A dream trip come true
At the time, our daughter, Jasmine
was only 15. The trip was for two,
not three, and besides she wanted
US to have this for ourselves. Well,
we couldn’t exactly leave her alone
for a week, so we waited for the right
time to go. We tried during the summer,
but the factory is closed all of
August. Winter? Nope… the Factory
was closed for Christmas. Finally
this April everything came together!
Jasmine is now 18 and very independent,
so we booked and planned our
trip with the help of the fabulous
Macan S rental with snow option
So, we drove from Frankfurt, Germany
(Country #1) on to Luxembourg
City (Country #2). It’s a cool
city with lots of elevation, which
confused our Navigation system.
We might have at one point been
driving on the sidewalk; I’m still not
sure. We drove around the city for
a short while, but then moved on.
France (Country #3) was in between
us and our first hotel. We found no
crepes to eat there, but did see a few
Porsches on a drive while we were
on the Autobahn. Baden-Baden,
Germany is a beautiful little town
that is worth a stay. The next day was
a big driving day. We drove through
lots of little German towns through
the Black Forest that were just what
I wanted them to be. Some were
Medieval looking and you knew
they had been there for thousands
The Neuschwanstein Castle
We then drove on to Munich to see
what we could see. The Deutches
Museum is amazing. We could have
spent many hours (or days) there.
They had fascinating exhibits where
they cut things in half so you could
see what it looked like inside… like a
submarine and a slice of a jumbo jet.
We left the museum and wandered
downtown and arrived at the Marienplatz
exactly as the Glockenspiel was
starting. From there we went to our
hotel in Salzburg, Austria (Country
#6)! Why, do you ask, when it’s out
Wendy on the Sound of Music tour
of the way? You see… the Sound of
Music is my all-time favorite movie.
This year is the 50th anniversary of
it and call me a sucker, but I HAD
to do the tour. It didn’t disappoint!
Too corny to go into detail here, but
if you want to know, just ask. I have
LOTS of pics. :) I will say one thing,
though, the church they filmed the
main wedding in Mondsee is one of
the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
After the SoM tour, we were finally
on our way to Stuttgart, Germany…
the home of the Porsche Factory
and Museum. THIS was the Holy
Grail… the reason it took us several
to sync up
Porsche Factory our cameras
phones (NO secrets being leaked!),
it was an amazing site. German precision
is not a misnomer. They make
all the 911s and Boxsters in this tiny
little factory, all by hand (except for
the super cool windshield robot).
Each of 108 stations had exactly
3:44 minutes to perform their tasks
before it moved on to the next. We
asked what happens if there’s a delay.
The tour guide said calmly, “There
are no delays.” He meant it! Just in
time parts delivery, breaks scheduled
to the minute… it’s a well-oiled machine
making well-oiled machines!
Two short hours later, our tour
came to an end and we went on to
the museum. Having been there before,
we thought it would be quick.
However, there might have been 8
cars there that were the same as last
time. They are constantly changing
it… keeping it fresh for visitors. I
highly recommend multiple visits!

The next day was another biggie.
We drove up to the Nürburgring
and rented a 991S! Oh my goodness!
Thirteen miles of historical
racetrack. One thousand feet in elevation
change from the highest to
the lowest spots on the track. Seventy-three
turns, many of which were
blind. The scariest, most thrilling
ride & drive of my life. James did 2
laps and I did 2 laps. Times are irrelevant
up next to us? A Cayman GT4, a
model not yet in production…but
there it was! It was a press car on a
very impressive test drive, according
to the lucky journalist. I need HIS
job! We finished up the evening
with dinner at the famous Restaurant
Pistenklause with a fellow PCA
member living in Germany, Michael
Osborn, who had come out to show
us around and enjoy the ‘ring. We
then took our final drive to Frankfurt
for the flight home.
I could not have asked for a better
trip, except if it had been TWO
weeks instead of SIX days. Exhausted,
satisfied, and thrilled, we headed
back home to tell the tale. Thank
you, Maverick Region and especially
to Linda Bambina, for making this

Maverick Monthly Social: Lavendou French Bistro
By Sylva Cohen
May 21, 2015 brought us to
Lavendou French Bistro in
North Dallas. D Magazine
rated Lavendou as the Best French
Restaurant in Dallas in 2013, 2012, and
2010, and it certainly hasn’t lost any
What started out as a small event
turned out at the end to be the largest Thursday evening
Social Event to date for the Mavs. On the day of
Photos by George Luxbacher and Stephanie Ho
the event, Lavendou owner Pascal Cayet closed the
restaurant to other patrons in order to accommodate
117 Mavericks. We nearly filled all three rooms of the
restaurant. A large area of the parking lot was cordoned
off to offer our cars an exclusive Porsche Only parking
experience, something I personally enjoy so I don’t
have to walk a mile to the restaurant! Even the weather
cooperated and allowed us an evening without rain and
storms. Once inside we were greeted with the warm atmosphere
of the restaurant and gracious wait staff making
the rounds with trays of hors d’oeuvres.
Lavendou did a marvelous job keeping up with our
crowd. At our table we ordered additional appetizers of
soup and escargot. The entrees were delicious with a
wide variety to accommodate every palate.
Many, many thanks to Stephanie Ho for putting together
such a fabulous evening for us all. The many
hours she spent in advance planning and coordination
produced a seamless and perfect evening for us all. Vive
Lavendou! Vive Stephanie!

Hanging With Hurley as told by Allen Myers
Having owned Porsches for eight years, I had certainly
heard of Hurley Haywood, but had never done any
research on his automotive background. This past April
my son Darren, who lives in Denver with his young family
and his ’09 Cayman S, called, inviting me to share in
a small, private “event” in Jacksonville, FL hosted by Mr.
Haywood. My answer took no hesitation. Incidentally
I’m the young-at-heart dude who drives the British green
Cayman S at most of our DE sessions. I immediately
Googled Hurley and was blown away: “H. Haywood
is the most decorated endurance race driver in history!”
Three WINS at Le Mans, five wins at the Rolex 24 at
Daytona, two wins at the 12 Hours of Sebring, 18
Indy starts, and much more. Yeah, Son, I’m all in!!!!
Darren is with a money management group that
invests for The University of North Florida Foundation
in Jacksonville. A lady who works with the foundation
knows Darren is a Porsche guy, happens to be good
friends with Hurley, and knew he had an extensive car
collection housed in Jacksonville. She became interested,
contacted the “couldn’t be more gracious” racing
legend, and coordinated the Denver group’s up-coming
business meeting with a few interested local friends to
get together on May 8th for a rather rare personal tour.
We were greeted by the fit and friendly legend at his
Porsche Dealership, one of his multiple Brumos Racing
automobile dealerships. Our day was kick-started by
his new custom-made 918, displayed front and center,
complete with $1,001,000 delivery sticker- the first of
our many “wows!” Also on the floor is his 917/10TC
Can-Am beast (1,000+HP) with the same color scheme.
From there we were transported in a new MB Sprinter
mini bus to his nearby Lexus Dealership, where a large
warehouse conceals the Brumos Racing garage and a
very impressive collection of about 50 (guess) autos and
countless pieces of car and racing memorabilia. On
every wall are photos of all the greats (yep, even Steve
McQueen filming Le Mans), rare autographed posters,
trophies, etc., accumulated over 55 years of racing all
over the world! Hurley shares this space with the collections
of two others. One is the owner of Winn-Dixie.
The cars were not all Porsches, but all were special
in some way, and spanned one hundred years of
production. One impressive trio was a 959, Carrera
GT, and a matte black 918! Our tour was made even
more exciting by Hurley being joined in the informal
walk-around by Don Leatherwood, who has been with
him for over 30 years as his pit boss to current General
Manager. Don is a fountain of automotive knowledge
about each car in the collection, and is also a master
mechanic, knowing all the tricks to build and maintain
super-fast works of art. I think he and Hurley would have
talked all night about their passion. Darren and I feel so
honored and privileged to have had this opportunity.
That night we ate with the group at a very fine restaurant
near Sawgrass Resort. The Player’s Championship
was the following week. Hurley is the Chief Driving
Instructor at the Porsche Sport Driving School if you
desire to pursue an appointment. Especially our lady
drivers, as he is practically Paul Newman’s twin!
