SPROCKETS: Getting to Know You

By David Robertson, Region President

Driving Friendships. This is the tagline for our

club, and the longer I am a member, the more I

realize how true this statement is. I often talk about

our amazing events and the record participation

we are seeing these days, but the people in this club

and the friendships I have made are really what

makes being a member of the Maverick Region so

great for me. Little did I know when I joined years

ago, that not only was I able to get my Porsche on a

track to realize what a great piece of engineering it

is, but I have also met an amazing group of people

and continue to do so.

As the Maverick Region President, I have

the honor of speaking to or communicating

via email with many of our members in the

course of club business. One of the great

joys of my role has been getting to know

members that have been around for many

years, those that have just joined the club,

and everyone in between.

Pretty much everyone! I have all types of

conversations. From great news on what we are

doing right and equally valued input on where

improvements could be made to make our club

even better. I welcome all of this discussion because

input from our members is how the Maverick

Region continues to grow and thrive.

There are so many great people in this club

from all different walks of life, each with a unique

story to tell. We all have a common interest

that brings us together, and in this age of online

interactions, maybe that gives us a good excuse

to have a true conversation.

During my time in this club I have gotten to

know many of you and I look forward to meeting

as many of our members as I can catch up with.

When at an event I always try to introduce myself

to members I don’t know, but if I don’t make it to

you first please come over and say hi.


September marks Jerry’s 20-year anniversary in

the Maverick PCA. Long before Jerry became

known as our Region trivia expert, he was an

advertiser in Slipstream promoting his “Jerry

DeFeo New Home Designs” business. His tagline

“Have You Ever Wished that You Could Find

Someone that Took as Much Care to Design Your

Construction Project as Porsche Took to Design

Your Favorite Car?” still resonates with today’s

Porsche owner. Our first Maverick Trivia contest

can be found in the

February 2002 issue.

That’s thousands of

Maverick Region

members that Jerry

has stumped over

the years with his

interesting questions

that challenge any

Porschephile. If you

have not tried the

trivia contest, you

need to start with

the September

version that can be

found online along

with answers and questions to the previous contest

in this issue. The trivia contest is a great way to test

your Porsche knowledge. You will learn something

each month! Jerry, thank you for all of your work

with the Maverick Region over the last 20 years.

DIY: Refreshing Your Interior Trim

By Tom Martin

If you have a Sand Beige interior

in your 9X7 Porsche (911, Cayman,

Boxster), then you’ve probably

noticed areas on the trim that are

worn or chipped, exposing the

underlying black plastic. You’ve

also noticed that it is quite ugly and

detracts from the overall appearance

of the cabin. Porsche utilized a “soft

touch” paint here, which, as far as I

can determine, means that if you just

“touch” any part of the Sand Beige

trim, even “softly”, the paint will

wear or chip. Go figure.

Why Porsche didn’t just

mold the plastic parts in

beige instead of black is

beside me. But then again,

what do I know? I invested

in Enron.


there is a simple and

very neat fix to keep

your Sand Beige interior ever fresh.

One option is to enlist a professional

to respray the affected parts of your

interior. They’ll even come to your

home or office to do the job. They

do a lot of work at the dealerships,

refreshing trade-ins for resale. A

C-Note or two would likely cover

the cost, but then again, if you DIY

it, you could save a lot of money,

and even refresh your trim whenever

needed in the future. And trust me,

with Sand Beige interior trim, you

will need to do just that.

Commonly affected areas are

the headlight switch and ignition

key bezels, door pocket, rear trunk

surrounds and shock towers (on

Boxsters and Caymans), and basically

any area that comes in contact with

anything other than air.

Without a doubt, the hardest

part of touching up interior trim

is matching the paint. Even a

professional will tell you this as they

painstakingly mix various colors to

match your interior color. Easy fix:

just take one part of your trim down

to the paint department of your local

Home Depot and ask them to paint

match your trim

piece to a flat (matte)

water base paint. An

8-oz. sample will set

you back less than

three bucks. Some

owners remove the

ashtray. In my case, I

gingerly popped out

the driver’s side air vent cover with

a small screwdriver and presented it

to a HD paint associate who placed

it inside their transmogrifier and

came up with a perfect match. Ain’t

science grand?

Now, you can dab the paint

on your chipped areas with a

sponge brush, but the best results

are achieved with an airbrush

application of the paint.

I picked up an airbrush at Harbor

Freight, selecting their Deluxe

Airbrush Kit. Cost was $16.00 with

a 20% off coupon. If you subscribe

to any magazine published in the

English language, chances are it will

contain a full page Harbor Freight

ad featuring a 20% off coupon,

plus an additional coupon for a free

flashlight, or tape measure, or some

other low-tech wonder tool.

The instruction manual included

with the kit was useless; it basically

informed me that I had just purchased

an airbrush. Google searches and

You Tube videos provided essential

information on the proper use,

adjustment, and cleaning of the

airbrush. It can be a somewhat

finicky tool, so one would be well

advised to pursue this same tack.

photos by Tom Martin

Now it was time to get dangerous.

Armed with a loaded airbrush, using

a 2-to-1 water/paint ratio, I was ready

to attack those pesky paint chips on

my pristine Porsche Cayman. As with

any DIY project, preparation is key

here. First I sanded the affected areas

with 320, then 600, and finally 1500

grit sandpaper. Next the affected areas

were masked off with painter’s tape

and newsprint to avoid overspray on

any non-plastic areas.

Spraying the paint was the easiest

step. I connected the airbrush to my

three-gallon pancake air compressor

and set the pressure to 30 psi. Using

measured and consistent strokes, I

applied several very thin coats of

paint, using the adjustable trigger to

fade the paint gradually from the end

of the sweep to full spray at the center,

then fade out at the end. The spray

was very localized, so overspray was

not a problem. The blend at either end

of the spray appeared to be flawless.

I shot the trunk and shock towers of

my wife’s Cayman, and the headliner

trim and door pockets of mine - all

with more than satisfactory results.

Be advised that while these

instructions address specific Sand

Beige interior issues, they should be

applicable to factory painted interiors

of any other colors. And if you decide

to pursue this project yourself; good

luck and remember, if you can DIY

it, then just do it!

Tech Session Series: Discount Tire

By Michael Baynton, Region Tech Session Chair

On Sunday, July 22, over 50 Mavs gathered at the

Discount Tire store on Ohio Drive in Plano to learn

everything there is to know about Porsche tire engineers

and tire manufacturers, and how they work together to

bring out the best in our cars.

To begin the discussion, store manager

Todd Eaddy spoke with great depth and

experience about N-spec tires, which is

a tire manufacturer code that indicates

that certain tires have been engineered

specifically to handle the requirement of

Porsche automobiles.

While Porsche isn’t the only manufacturer to require

special tire construction and materials for its vehicles,

being aware of these construction variances is important

to ensure that your Porsche handling characteristics

are optimized. Also note that equipping your Porsche

vehicle with tires that do not carry the N-spec rating

could affect some warranty coverage.

Todd also explained the differences between ultrahigh

performance summer tires, track-specific rubber,

and all-season performance options. Clearly, your

intended usage and driving habits should inform your

tire purchase decisions. Overall, though, current tire

construction technology and rubber compounds across

all categories is vastly superior to tires from even five

or ten years ago. Throughout the session, Todd was

gracious in answering a multitude of questions about

specific applications.

Lest the group get “tired” of rubber talk, Todd

invited everyone into the workshop area, where he

demonstrated their state-of-the-art tire mounting and

pphotos by Bill Orr

tire balancing equipment, as well as specific tools and

jacks needed to work on both old and new Porsches.

This store even carries “lollipops” to ensure that older

air-cooled 911s can be raised using proper jacking

points. We also learned that Discount Tire is an industry

leader in employee safety and installs special cages to

ensure that tires are inflated without risk of injury.

When the rubber hits the road, these tech sessions

are made successful by knowledgeable hosts, the interest

of our members, and a small army of Mav volunteers

who show up early and help with setup and logistics. A

special thank-you also to Scott Boyd, owner of Coffee

Perks, who graciously donated coffee for this tech

session. And stay tuned for info on upcoming tech

sessions later this year!

It is always great to catch up with old friends and meet

new ones so don’t miss out on the fun in August at

Mena’s Tex Mex Cantina in Flower Mound. Remember

Kruder’s Cars & Conversation

By Bill Kruder

photos courtesy of Victor Rojas

You guessed it! Once again it’s

all about coffee and who you meet.

Several months ago, Bill Bradley

started this Friday coffee meet up at

Trio Craft Coffee in Flower Mound.

I finally decided to join the fun one

Friday and I think we had eight to

ten guys there. As it turns out, three

of them, including this month’s

interviewee, had never been out

with us before. Apparently he had

read on Facebook that we were

meeting and thought he might stop

to check it out on his way to work.

Well, we struck up a conversation

about all things coffee and Porsches

and he has been out with us more

times than I can count.

So here is the next in my series

of “conversations” I would like to

share with you:

Victor Rojas, Member since 2017,

Owner 2007 Speed Yellow Cayman

Bill Kruder: So I know you are not

originally from here; where again?

12 September

Victor Rojas: Oh no for some reason

people always think I’m from the

Northeast but I am from Dallas,

specifically Grand Prairie. My Dad

was from Mexico and moved here

when he was fourteen; my mom

was born and raised in Dallas.

BK: Where do you live now?

VR: We live in Flower Mound; we

moved there for the schools. Our

son just graduated High School.

However, we are moving shortly

back to Dallas, to the Design District.

BK: Where did you go to school?

VR: I went to Jesuit High School in

north Dallas. My Dad worked in

Dallas so he would take my brother

and me to school and my uncle

would pick us up. That is, until my

brother was able to drive; then he

would take us.

BK: And how about college?

RA: I graduated from El Centro College

with a degree in Culinary Arts.

BK: How did you get interested in

Culinary Arts?

VR: Well I have a large extended

family; my Dad is one of nine and

my mom is one of five. We were

always having these big family

gatherings that of course revolved

around food and drink.

BK: Was someone in the business

that inspired you?

VR: Matter of fact my grandfather

started out in the restaurant and

hotel business. He started at the

bottom and worked his way up,

so think that was my inspiration.

Plus Mom I think - back in the 80’s

we would watch this show called

“Great Chefs of the West,” and I

remember Stephen Pyles was on it,

and my mom said “why don’t you

be like him?”

BK: What was your first experience

in “fine dining”?

VR: That would be at the old Dallas

Stouffer Hotel. I had experience

already as a waiter, so when I joined

them, that was what I considered

fine dining at its best.

BK: So did you start out in the fine

dining arena?

VR: Heck no! Going to school I

waited tables at Bennigan’s. My

first “chef” job was at a little

place called Mustang Café in Los

Colinas. It was nice but no five star

experience (laughing).

BK: When we first met you were

opening up a new restaurant as

GM, but I recently hear you are

somewhere new now?

VR: Yes that’s right. I was working

on the opening of Bullion, a Bruno

Davaillon concept. We got that

open, and recently a friend told me

about a new opportunity, which

ended up being the reopening of

the French Room at the Adolphus.

They had gone thru a 16-month

$11 million renovation to bring the

fine dining experience back to what

it was in 1912.

BK: I’ve met your wife Michelle at

a couple things - how did you guys


VR: She was dating a mutual friend

of ours and I’d see her out at times.

Then somehow I got invited out

with her group. Something good

happened we have been married for

22 years now, and we have our son

Evan (smiling).

BK: Let’s talk cars: what was your

first memorable Porsche moment?

VR: When I was a kid someone who

lived down the street had a 914,

and I’d see it and I just thought that

was the coolest car.

BK: And what was your first car?

VR: That was a ‘72 Super Beetle, a

BAJA; it was out of character for

me. It was yellow, had this big

exhaust and exposed engine - truly

some else’s car (laughing).

BK: So how did the Cayman come


VR: We were both driving Hondas

and I had “secretly” been looking

at Porsches on Hemmings. Both

the Hondas were getting old so we

decided it was time to get something

newer. I was looking and looking

and decided the Cayman was what

I wanted. It sounds funny, but I

like the “speed racer” look of them

(laughing). So finally Michelle said

“stop talking about it and buy one.”

Think I test drove nearly a dozen.

I drove three the day I bought this


BK: So it’s Michelle’s fault?

VR: Well I never thought about it

but yes (laughing), but she loves

the car as much as I do, so not sure

there is blame.

Every month as I write these

interviews I think the same thing:

what if . . . ? What if I had not gone

to Flower Mound, what if I had

not had the chance to strike up that

conversation with the “new” guy?

So if and when you meet someone

new don’t miss out on “Driving



Maverick Marktpreis: Porsche Values

by Peter Wen

It’s no secret that air-cooled 911s have been gaining value

in recent years. With the 993 (the last air-cooled generation)

hogging the spotlight, you may have missed the meteoric rise

of a particular group of 911 Carreras . . . Super Carreras,

that is.

The Super Carrera, or SC, was produced from ’78 to ’83, in

the middle of the second-generation 911. 911 SCs, in this socalled

impact-bumper generation, have enjoyed an incredible

run up in value over the last five years. The SC coupes in

particular have doubled in value across the board from fairconditioned

daily drivers to show winners. Targas have also

shown significant gains, with a range of about 55 to 65%.

The SC Cabriolet, the first 911 convertible ever, reported a

more modest gain, between 15 and 30%. A total of 57,890

SCs were produced.

Excellence magazine’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide offered these

price ranges:

SC Coupe (‘78-‘83) - $20,000-$47,000

SC Targa (‘78-‘83) - $18,000-$43,000

SC Cabriolet (‘83) - $25,000-$45,000

Porsche Parade 2018

By Carey Spreen

The 63rd Porsche Parade took place in mid-July

at the Tan-Tar-A Resort on the Lake of the Ozarks in

Missouri. In case you’re not familiar with the Parade,

it’s a week-long “convention” that the Porsche Club of

photos provided by author

including Enthusiast of the Year, Family of the Year,

Region of the Year, membership growth awards, and

public service awards. The Zone Representatives

present an award to a deserving individual or group,

and once in a while, PCA bestows its

highest honor, the Bill Sholar Award, to

a member who has distinguished himself

or herself in an exemplary fashion. PCA

also recognizes regional newsletters and

websites, ranking them using a panel of

judges. You can read more about these

awards on the PCA website at https://

Marketing Chair Bill Orr took home

a major award: the Lazar-Blanchard

Memorial Trophy for Enthusiast of the

Year. Congratulations, Bill! Slipstream

also won two awards in the Newsletter

America holds each year in a different part of the

country. There are competitive events, driving

tours, social gatherings, awards banquets, and

opportunities to meet with and talk to PCA

national officers, Porsche Cars North America

(PCNA) officials, Porsche factory representatives,

and often, a member or two of the Porsche family.

This year the Parade was only about 520

miles away (roughly, depending on where in the

Metroplex you start from), so the one- or two-day

drive made it a no-brainer for lots of Mavericks –

we had over 60 members from the region attend: 37

entrants and 24 co-entrants, plus a couple of Junior

Participant Program (JPP, age 16-17) and College

Age Family Program (CAFP, age 18-24) entries.

As you might expect, some were first-timers and

others were old hands, but I’ll go out on a limb and

say that all of us enjoyed our time there.

The Parade features four main competitive

events: the Concours d’Elegance, the Time-

Speed-Distance (TSD) Rally, the Autocross,

and the Technical and Historical Quiz. Other

competitions included the Gimmick Rally, the

Art Show, the Golf Tournament, and the 5K Run/

Walk. There were also events geared toward the

kids, including RC car races (on-road and offroad),

and an “anycross,” where they could use

any kind of wheeled conveyance to set a time on

a predefined course.

The Parade is also where national recognition

is awarded for various individuals and groups,

20 September

Contest: Best Cover, and second place in Class VI (regions

with at least 1650 members). Congratulations to 2017

Editor Jim Hirsch! Well deserved! And with another

trophy to take home, Maverick Region’s website (Bill

Orr, webmaster) took first place in Class V (regions with

at least 800 members) in the Website Contest. Kudos

again, Bill! Furthermore, the Zone Representatives

award went to fellow Zone 5 members RJ Wilmoth and

Linda Bosko of the Longhorn Region, in recognition of

their outstanding work with the PCA archives.

As in past years, Maverick Region entrants

represented their region very well, competing in just

about every event. In the Concours d’Elegance, Richard

Lyschik took first in class PP15T (Preparation – touringlevel

judging) with his 2015 Macan; congratulations

Richard! Additionally, Don and Harriet Sebert got

fourth with their 1993 RS America in class PS05F

(Preservation – full judging), and Joshua Gutjahr

managed a ninth place with his 2004 996 in class PP06S

(Preparation – street-level judging).

The TSD Rally is a competitive event, but it is

not a race. It is held on public roads at legal speeds,

Another type of rally, the Gimmick Rally, although

still competitive, is more of a fun event, where

participants drive around the countryside looking for

clues; sort of a treasure hunt. Classes are broken down

into vehicles with two people, and vehicles with more

than two people. The thought is that more eyeballs in the

car makes for better chances of spotting all the treasure,

but sometimes more people in the car just cause more

distraction! Anyway, in the two-person class, Yasha

(driver) and Kendra (navigator) Avshalumov took 19th

place, and Region President and First Lady David (driver)

and Tracy (navigator) Robertson garnered 26th place,

but note that this is with 91 competitors in the class! No

Mavericks competed in the more-than-two class.

The Autocross takes place over two days to allow

all entrants to get in four runs each. The course was

set up on an airport taxiway, and was short and sweet:

most runs were in the 30- to 40-second range. Thirteen

representatives of Maverick Region competed.

In the Showroom Stock classes, where no

modifications are allowed, Fran Ussery took second

place in S05W in her showroom-stock 2000 Boxster,

while father and

son Scott and Seth

Stubbs took 16th

and 17th place

respectively in the

very competitive

S11O class, driving

Fred (Scott’s dad)

Stubbs’ 2011

Boxster Spyder.

Not to be left out,

and is scored based on how well the driver/navigator

team can follow the route instructions, look for signs

and landmarks, maintain various average speeds

throughout the event, and arrive neither too early

nor too late at hidden checkpoints along the route.

This year there were four Maverick entries. Joshua

Gutjahr (driver) teamed up with Vic Rola (navigator)

from Smoky Mountain Region in R06 (Unequipped),

and came in at 11th place just outside the trophies.

There were two entries in R05 (Unequipped Plus): Fran

(driver) and Carl (navigator) Ussery took home fifth

place trophies, and Don Breithaupt (driver) and Carey

Spreen (navigator) earned first place trophies, also

taking fourth place overall out of 98 entrants. In R04

(Unequipped Navigational), long-time TSD rallyists

Myra (driver) and Jerry (navigator) Sutton won fifth

place trophies. Congratulations all!

S11W, beating husband and son by several tenths of a

second! Way to go Stubbs family! And another Maverick

family, Roger and Heather Briggs, competed in their

2010 Panamera Turbo, with Roger taking first place in

S15O and Heather taking third in S15W. Heather has

an excuse though: she was in the same class as threetime

Ladies’ Top Time of Day winner Wendy Shoffit,

who took first in S15W in her 2017 Macan Turbo.

In the Production classes, where a few performance

modifications are allowed, Carey Spreen took second

place in a 1987 924S in class P03O, while Sue Crimm

drove the same car to first place in class P03W, followed

by Geneva Spreen, also driving the same car, in second

place in the same class. (Geneva’s dad was very pleased

with those results too!) Josh Gutjahr (just edged out of

a trophy by 5/100 of a second, courtesy of his dad Bob

Gutjahr in the same car) took fourth in P10O driving


his 2004 996, the same car he had entered in both the

Concours and TSD Rally!

The Improved classes allow more radical

modifications. Ed Mayo’s 1967 911S was on the edge

between being a Production car and an Improved car,

so he entered it in Improved just to be safe. He took

second in class I01O, beaten by just 3/100 of a second

by a driver piloting the ultimate autocross car (in this

author’s opinion, anyway), a 914. Julia Underwood

also took second place in I01W, driving Ed’s 911.

Congratulations to all of our Autocross competitors!

The Technical and Historical Quiz is a sort of trivia

quiz for Porsche geeks, consisting of 50 general questions

about any Porsche topic you can think of, plus 25 more

questions about the specific model of Porsche that the

entrant chose. There are also five tie-breakers which are

counted only when there is a tie between two entrants

in the same class. Scores are calculated two ways: For

class winners, the model-specific questions are given

three times the weighting of the general questions,

while for overall winners, the general questions have

three times the weighting of the model-specific ones.

In class-specific competition, Alan Bambina placed

fourth in Q01M, the 356 class; Josh Gutjahr came

in third in Q05M, the 996/997/991 class; and Carey

Spreen came home with a trophy for second place in

Q06M, the 914 class. In overall quiz competition,

Carey Spreen came in third in the

Men’s division. No one can say that

Maverick Region doesn’t have its

share of Porsche geeks!

The Art Show had Maverick

representation as well: Alan Bambina

won second place in the Artisan Crafts

category for his handmade wooden

jewelry box in the form of a Porsche

crest, with each element of the crest

being a jewelry drawer. Very clever!

There were two RC Car races this

year – one on a road course and an

off-road version. On the road course,

Alan Bambina’s handmade

Porsche jewelry box

Seth Stubbs took third place in the age 15-17 class.

Good showing Seth!

There were a couple of non-Porsche-related events as

well. David and Tracy Robertson, along with teammates

Jeffery Hammond and Betsy Meyer, took third place in

the Golf Tournament. The Parade also puts on a 5K

Run/Walk; Josh Gutjahr won a first place trophy in

the Male age 20-29 class, while Tracy Robertson took

fifth place in the Female age (dare I say it?) 50-59 class,

Greg Sebert placed third in the Male age 50-59 class,

and Don Sebert ran away (get it?) with fourth place in

Male age 70 and over. Nice

job all!

So if any of this sounds

interesting, make plans to

attend a future Porsche

Parade. The 2019 event

takes place in Boca Raton,

FL, while in 2020 it moves

to Palm Springs, CA. Both

are roughly the same

distance from DFW, but will

be wildly different

environments. We don’t yet know where the 2021 event

will be, but because they cycle west-central-east, that

one should be closer to home. Hope to see you there!

Annually, PCA conducts the National Website Contest in which region and zone

websites are judged for editorial excellence, design effectiveness, user friendliness,

up-to-date content, and usefulness to their respective regions, zones, and members.

As a result of the outstanding content and technical advances in past submissions, PCA

decided to create an award for the Best Overall Region Website. The award was first

presented at Parade in 2012. The Best Overall Region Website Award is presented to

the region with highest overall score, regardless of class. The award will not duplicate

any National Website Award Class winners. Zone websites are not eligible for this

award. The award serves to demonstrate that the real value of any region website

is in effectively serving members of the website’s respective region. The award also

demonstrates the fluidity and dynamics of web-based communications and the ability

of the regions to adapt new technologies to meet the expectations of their users.


The Paul Heinmiller Memorial Trophy was previously awarded to the region newsletter

judged to be the most outstanding for the year, as part of the PCA Newsletter Contest.

The Heinmiller Memorial Award was donated in 1970 by the Porsche+Audi Division

of Volkswagen of America. Mr. Heinmiller was a past National Vice President. Under

Mr. Heinmiller’s leadership, Porsche Panorama became a professionally executed

publication both in physical layout and graphic art, as well as in refinement of its

content. Almost every region has members who belong to PCA because of Panorama

and who continue to renew their memberships to receive what has become the finest

single-marque, club-sponsored publication in the world.

The Betty Jo Turner Newsletter Award for Newsletter Excellence was created in 2012

to recognize retiring Panorama Editor Betty Jo Turner. This award replaced the Paul

Heinmiller Memorial Trophy, which was retired.

For the PCA Newsletter Contest, regions compete in one of five classes, based on region

membership as of December 31st of the competition year. Basing the classes on region

membership is intended to ensure that regions competing for the five separate class

awards have reasonably equal resources. The Betty Jo Turner Award for Newsletter

Excellence does not duplicate any of the class awards.

The evaluation criteria are: Information and Navigation; Overall Layout and

Appearance; Editorial Commentary; Event Publicity and Follow-Up; Photography and/

or artwork (Illustrations, Clipart); Technical Articles and Automotive Tips; Availability

in Digital Format to Members; Features and Article Contributions from Members;

and General Scope and Variety. Top editors from around the country are selected

to help with the judging of other regions’ newsletters. They assign scores for each

category. Points are given for the number of issues published by the region during

the year. Once class winners have been decided, the top entry from each class is then

re-evaluated by a second set of judges to determine the overall winner of the Betty Jo

Turner Award for Newsletter Excellence.

Enthusiast of the Year

The Glenn Lazar-Harry Blanchard Memorial Trophy was established by the late Bruce

“King Carrera” Jennings as an annual award to be presented to the region member

who best exemplifies the spirit and guidelines of PCA. The award is more commonly

known as the “Enthusiast of the Year” Award.

The recipient is a true “Porsche Enthusiast” and an outstanding member of PCA.

The recipient is an exemplary participant in region activities and shows initiative in

support and organization of ongoing activities and the development of new activities.

Any active member of the Porsche Club of America is eligible for this award, with the

exception of any person serving in a position on the PCA National Staff during the

award year.

Autocross Event 6: Mirrorcross at Mineral Wells

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair

The Porsche Parade took away some of our usual

autocross participants, and the extreme heat on the vast

Mineral Wells pavement made it a tough day for those

who did come out for the final MirrorCross dual course

event of the season. Everyone was happy that the final

four events will be back at the nice and shady Lone Star

Park site in Grand Prairie.

Mirrorcross is a dual side-by-side drag-race

style start with a very quick first straight

followed by a few difficult turns before the

courses peel off in opposite directions and

look like a normal autocross layout.

Due to surface imperfections, the course are rarely exact

opposites, which was made clear by the time differences

between the left and right courses. The participants

swapped sides after each run for a total of six attempts

to set their fastest time on each side, which were added

together for overall class position.

The start is very exciting because of the real drag race

style Christmas Tree countdown start, staging lights,

reaction time, and 60-foot time that a critical to set your

fastest time. A perfect reaction time is 0.500 seconds.

Less than that is a red light DNF, while more than that

means you left some time at the start. The 60-foot time

tells how well you got off the start and made it count by

getting the power down.

Owen Coulman was fastest Porsche in his 996 GT3,

with the Farnham family GT4 right behind him. Steve

and Sherry best run reaction times (RTs) of 0.807 and

0.539 to Owen’s best at 0.539. Owen demonstrated the

terrific GT3 acceleration and weight transfer to lay down

a stunning 1.855-second 60-foot time. Interestingly, the

914 2.0 driven by Mark and Sigrid Schnoerr was cutting

0.611 and 0.609 best RTs and, demonstrating the light

weight and perfect 60-foot in first gear, laid down times

almost identical to the GT4 to that spot. Of course the

GT4 motored away after that.

Next event at Lone Star Park is set for September 16.

Hope to see you there!

Mavs & Mochas: Neiman Marcus

Three things need to be said before any discussion

as to why over 100 Porsches could gather in a covered

parking garage in Willow Bend Mall to celebrate the

Porsche Cabriolet.

drop-top peers. Soon I was encircled by those eager

to impart knowledge on topics ranging from radar

detectors to grandchildren.

Inside the doors to Neiman Marcus, which opened

off the parking garage, were company employees

1. Thanks to our host Neiman Marcus for providing

coffee and breakfast tacos and for the use of their facilities.

2. Thanks to Park Place Dallas for sponsoring the

event, as well as congratulations on the opening of their

Grapevine branch.

3. Lastly, thanks to the early-rising Mavericks who

assisted in getting everyone properly parked and setting up

a table with club information, decals, and Porsche whatnot.

Rain had been forecast, so these folks had

thoughtfully provided microfiber towels so that club

members could remove the water spots from their

vehicles. Some actually did.

It should be added that it was still raining outside the

confines of the parking garage. So many of us, including

yours truly, contented ourselves with conversation and

drinking coffee.

I set up a folding chair in front of my 2006 Cabriolet,

which was parked amongst twenty of her representative

slips of paper could be filled out as chances to win a

variety of prizes:

• A lunch for four in the Mariposa

• A pair of cufflinks

• A pair of sneakers selected by the winner

• Master Dynamics luxury headphones

• Shinola gift

A little after ten o’clock, Porsches began leaving their

neat rows in the parking garage. Their passengers were

about to become shoppers. At this point yours truly

folded up his chair, said goodbye to those around him,

and exited the parking garage.

Yes, it was still raining.

New Member Perspective

by Aaron Hutton

This was my first social event, as I’ve owned the

car only about 3 weeks now. I came out to a midmonth

unofficial gathering, but that was only a

handful of cars. Even with the rain, it still looked like

a ton of cars and people at this gathering! So I shyly

parked out on the outskirts, for a couple of reasons:

1) I’m terrible at parking nose-out, so giving

myself lots of room is a good idea. I’m practicing

though and doing it in the Cayman isn’t too bad

since it’s smaller than I’m used to. I’m not worried

about hitting anything - more like I don’t want to try

3 times to get it right. Then again, it only took me

twice, so maybe I’m improving.

2) My poor Cayman still has adhesive haze all

over the hood from a clearbra that was left on much

longer than it should have. Didn’t want too many

people looking too closely at it!

I did get to meet a few new people, but being the

newbie, the conversations were fairly brief as folks

were often engaged with folks they knew better. But

I got to say hi to Bill B, Peter, plus got my license

plate frame (thanks Bill O!). We had a great time

though, and I’m really looking forward to the next

M&M with the 80’s theme!

I brought my 16 year old daughter with me and

as we pulled in she started getting anxious about

her appearance, saying “Oh my god there’s so many

expensive cars here, dad! I should have dressed nicer

or done something better with my hair!” Haha... well

not sure what to tell you kiddo, I was pretty clear

about where we were going! She looked great by the

way so I’m not sure what she was stressed about.

To whomever owns the cabriolet with the blue

full leather interior, that’s gorgeous. Thank you for

putting the top down so I could get up close!

Looking forward to the next event!

PCA Tours: A Tour to (and on) the Track

By Mark Pitarresi, Tours Co-Chair

We are back from our short summer break for the fifth

Tour this year, and boy do we have a treat for you! This will

be our annual charity tour to MotorSport Ranch in Cresson,

TX. MotorSport Ranch is a country club for automotive

enthusiasts at an awesome race track.

We will start the tour on Sunday, September 23 in

Mansfield, TX at 10 am. The drive will be 56 miles long

and will not have a rest stop. This is a great route, and many

of our drive leaders have nicknamed an area of it “The

Enchanted Forest”, and for good reason. We will be visiting

the track while our Maverick Region High-Performance

Driving Education program is underway. If you have ever

been interested in attending an HPDE and want to know

what it’s like, this tour

is for you.

For an optional

$30 donation you

can take your car out

on the track for some

parade laps! Parade

laps are not at a pace

that is slow, as in a

street parade, nor is it

too fast. This will be

my third time doing them, and everyone I have talked to

gets excited while sharing their experience afterward.

After the parade laps, we will have a catered lunch that

is also optional. Catering will be provided by Roscoe’s

Smokehouse. They will be serving five types of meat

including ribs, sliced brisket, pulled pork, smoked chicken,

and sausage. The sides will be coleslaw, potato salad, and

BBQ beans. Dessert will be peach cobbler and tea will also

be provided, all for $16 per person.

All proceeds for this tour will be donated to Patriot

PAWS, which provides service dogs at no cost to disabled

American veterans with mobile disabilities and Post-

Traumatic Stress Disorder, to help restore their physical and

emotional independence. You can find more information on

Patriot PAWS or any of our other of our preferred charities

at Donations can also be made at

any time at that address.

You must register for the tour at

Events/Tours/. We have two classes now on our tours. Choose

Vintage Class for a more relaxed scenic tour, or Modern

Class for the same type of tour that we have provided in

the past. Whichever class you choose it is your decision, no

matter the type of Porsche you drive. Three days before the

tour date, we will send you all the information you need to

attend. We hand out packets the day of the tour with all the

information as well.

The Drivers Briefing begins at 10 am so

please arrive early so that you are signed in

on time. Most tour attendees arrive early to

meet new friends and socialize with both

new and familiar faces.

Arriving early also helps our volunteers get everyone

signed in on time so the tour is on schedule. No special

navigation will be needed. Our Group Leaders will be

familiar with the route and will guide each group of 14 cars

or less along the route. If you have any questions about the

event please email

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

David mentioned the pride he has being president

of the Maverick Region. That pride is well deserved,

and shared by the volunteers and active members of

the club. If you haven’t

been to an event recently

or don’t happen to follow

social media, you might

not be aware that Maverick

Region is one of the largest,

most active clubs in the

country. Really!

Carey gave us a great

look of some of the winners

at Porsche Parade this year.

Pictured to the right are

three of the awards Jim

Hirsch and Bill Orr brought

home. Best Newsletter

cover, Second Place in the

Newsletter Contest and

Best Website in Class V. Nevermind that Bill Orr was

named Enthusiast of the Year. In fact, we had so many

winners I couldn’t fit all of the results and photos from

Parade in the newsletter this month. Because of that,

I’ll be putting together an expanded Slipstream for the

online edition at, check it out.

As for me, I’ll be

heading down to Austin for

Schnellfest at COTA. And

since my on-track exploits

have been few and sordid,

I’m focusing on the potential

for improvement. My son

keeps reminding me that slow

and steady wins the race, but

fast and steady is way more

fun. I can see the insurance

premiums already. Luckily I

have some time to save up.

II almost forgot - with so

many Porsche events coming

up, we’d love to have your

take on the experience. If

you are going to Rennsport or Treffen or any of the out

of town events and would like to share your thoughts,

drop me a line. As always - Enjoy the Drive!
