Autocross Event 5: Mineral Wells By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair Eight women driving Porsches (out of 14 Porsche entries) made up the majority of the drivers at our June 17 event. A total of 72 entries came out to face the heat, but the intermittent cloud cover helped a lot. The PCA group also enjoyed Scott Wolthuis’ open sided trailer shade. photos by Robert Kirby /LightSpeed Images P1 - 'PCA 1' Total Entries: 3 Car Color Best Time Diff. 1T P1 7 Amir El-Baghdady 944 S2 Maroon 88.77 - 2 P1 16 Fran Ussery Boxster S 986 Speed Yellow 92.9 4.13 3 P1 168 Carolle Liu Boxster 987 White 95.318 2.418 P3 - 'PCA 3' Total Entries: 2 Car Color Total Diff. 1T P3 71 Steve Farnham Cayman GT4 yellow 82.21 - 2 P3 171 Sherry Farnham Cayman GT4 88.786 6.576 P4 - 'PCA 4' Total Entries: 6 Car Color Total Diff. 1 P4 954 Mark Schnoerr 914 Lime green 86.74 - 2 P4 914 Sigrid Schnoerr 914 Lime Green 88.444 1.704 3T P4 906 Carey Spreen 924S Red 88.599 0.155 4T P4 90 Sue Crimm 924S Red 95.636 7.037 5 P4 907 Geneva Spreen 924S Red 108.284 12.648 6T P4 5 Edward Mayo 914 2.0 Silver DNF 108.28 P6 - 'PCA 6' Total Entries: 1 Car Color Total Diff. 1T P6 1 Anna Zimmermann 911 C4 100.838 - P7 - 'PCA 7' Total Entries: 1 Car Color Total Diff. 1T P7 7 Douglas Edney 996 Black 90.324 - P9 - 'PCA 9' Total Entries: 1 Car Color Total Diff. 1T P9 56 Scott Wolthuis 911S Blue 86.844 - The Equipe Rapide team set up a long, fast, and technical course. The setup crew did a very nice job marking and cleaning off the driving surface before and between run groups. Quickest in the Porsche performance index was Steve Farnham (Hill Country Region) in the Speed Yellow Cayman GT4, came all the way from Georgetown, TX, for this event with his wife Sherry. Second and third quick index were Mark and Sigrid Schnoerr in the family 914. Scott Wolthuis in his 1975 911S and Carey Spreen in his 1987 924S were very close this time. Ed Mayo was putting down a terrific first run when his 914 decided it was time for a new wiring harness and shut down right before the finish line. Julia did not get to drive, although Mark and Sigrid offered up their 914 to keep them in the hunt. Ed’s car was flatbedded home. At least Ed knows a great mechanic and shop to do the repair!
