©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

participated in

either of these,

I strongly recommend

you

do so next

year. Parade is

held at a different

location

every year (Jay

Peak, Vermont

in 2016).

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

social events

and an autocross

each month.

15: our second Photo Workshop.

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.

SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor

1235 William D. Tate Ave

Grapevine, TX 76051

817-329-6995

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

certainly appreciate

the contribution

he has made

and continues to

make to the DE

program. John

Sandusky is our

Mav of the Month

for July.

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

scorching.

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

6 July

While the

official

meeting

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

as well.

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

their events.

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

for her.

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

future.

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

Southlake.

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!

Meeting was adjourned.

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

Motorcycle Club).

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

good sign.

8 July

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

easily throughout

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,

everyone wins.

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.


Cliff’s Ramblings: Contemplating Technology

By Cliff Blackshear

So yesterday

a Macan

comes in and

has no working

headlights, turn

signals, wipers, or

four-way flashers.

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

2 laptop and interrogated the micro

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

drive links menu in “Front Module”

and attempted to turn on the headlights.

Nope. Not happening. Sat

there and thought about “transport

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

diagnosis.

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-

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.

and then went back to the paddock. Competitors got

one run group in the AM and one run group in the PM

for a total of 16 runs on course. The best time from the

right and the best time from the left was combined for

the scores below.

Destination Restoration:

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

after reassembly.

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

clean caliper.

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

its housing.

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

Back in

2012, when

Maverick

Region was celebrating

its 50th

anniversary, the

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

16 July

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

years

for our

schedules

to sync up

with their

holidays.

This tour

also did

not disappoint!

Despite

having

to leave

Porsche Factory our cameras

and cell

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!

We then

visited the

Mercedes

Museum to

compare

and contrast

the

two. Holy

cow they

could not Porsche Museum

have been

more different! But this isn’t an article

for the Mercedes Club, so I’m

moving on.

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

with

traffic and

unsure

start/stop

points, but

for those

James driving

the Nürburgring

with Wendy

of you

scoring at

home, we

were both

under 10

minutes.

While

parked

there,

what pulls

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

trip happen!

Travel tips:

• Forget passport stamps – they

don’t do them anymore, unless

you really hunt for it!

• If you want an authentic cuckoo

clock, buy one in Triberg,

Germany.

• Make your factory tour request

months ahead and be prepared

to move quickly when you get

your date. We had 3 weeks to

plan.

• Neuschwanstein Castle – take

the horse and carriage up, but

walk down.

• The Macan is an AMAZING vehicle!

We will own one sooner

than we thought we would!

• LOVE the Autobahn! No speed

limit, the left lane is for passing

ONLY, and (nearly) everyone

drives with a purpose.

• Spend WAY more time than we

did doing all this. Trust me, it’s

worth it!

• Look out for the Cayman

GT4… it is one fantastic car!

You never know where one will

pop up.

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

ground since.

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!
