SPROCKETS: Getting to Know You
By David Robertson, Region President
Fall is upon us and hopefully that means cooler
temperatures. It also means that our club is in full
swing with lots of great events for you to attend. If
you have attended a Maverick event, I don’t need
to tell you how much fun we have and what great
people you will meet. For those of you who haven’t
attended one of our many events, or if you that
haven’t been out with us in a while, there has never
been a better time to come out and see what all of
the buzz is about.
We really do have something for everyone, and
if you don’t know where to start, you might want
to come out to a Mavs & Mochas. This event is a
monthly casual gathering of some of the greatest
cars you have ever seen! Mavs & Mochas is a
come-and-go-as-you-like gathering of Porsches
where everyone is very eager to answer all of your
questions about a specific Porsche you may be
fascinated with, or about any of our other events.
Once you realize what a great group we have, you
will want to try something else as soon as you can.
Just show up and enjoy!
Make sure you are subscribed to our social
media pages as well. Along with the official events
you will find on our calendar there are always
impromptu gatherings to make sure that a week
doesn’t go by without a way for us to get together.
Another great way to get involved is to volunteer
and help us put on one of these great events.
Volunteering is a great way to meet others in the
club and really learn what the Maverick Region is
all about. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we can line you up with an event that matches
The enthusiasm and passion that our
volunteers put into organizing our many
activities makes the Maverick Region one
of the best.
I hope to see you this month out on the road!
MAVS OF THE MONTH:
Monthly Social co-chairs
Clark Randall and Vanessa Fernandes
Vanessa and Clark stepped into the Monthly
Social Chair role last year and they have done an
amazing job organizing our monthly Happy Hour/
Dinner Socials. Over the past few years, our
monthly socials have grown to a size that makes
organizing them somewhat challenging at times.
The planning and coordination that Clark and
Vanessa put into these events is phenomenal.
They work very hard, not only to find great
venues, but also ones that can host the number
of Maverick members that enjoy attending. If
you haven’t attended a Happy Hour/Dinner
Social, you are missing out on one of our most
popular events. Thank you Vanessa and Clark
for everything you do to make these events so
enjoyable for our members!

Farm Road 4: A Tribute Driving Tour for Voy “Mitch” Mitchell
By Mark Pitarresi, Tours Co-Chair
It is my pleasure to present our sixth and final Maverick
Driving Tour for 2018. This driving tour is for the pure
driving enthusiast and will be unlike any driving tour our
region has done in years! The route has everything one
would want on a country drive, Porsche Style. Participants
will experience long straights, wide open scenic views,
twisties, blind corners, and elevation changes. This is prime
Texas ranch area my friends!
Many of you know Mitch Mitchell and how he was
involved with our region’s tour program. When I started with
our program it got a little overwhelming in the beginning.
Mitch seemed to pick up on this and had a great way of
defusing things that seemed stressful.
Mitch was one of those guys that anyone
could have a great conversation with. Every
time I saw Mitch at a PCA event he was
surrounded by friends, and joining in on the
conversations was a pleasure.
He also did a lot of drives in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and
New Mexico. To quote John Glover, “Mitch was part of a
unique bunch of friends who like to drive fast”. This group
of friends went
on to create the
baseline of what we
know today as the
route in our area
was Farm Road 4.
As a tribute, we
have chosen it for
our last driving
tour this year. In
addition to Bill
in this issue of
12), there are two
more I would like
to mention that
were about Mitch. They can be found in the September
2015 (pages 18-19) and October 2015 (pages 16-17) issues
of Slipstream. Electronic copies can be found at mav.pca.
The route will begin at 10 am on Sunday, November 4
at Jacksboro Middle School, 812 W Belknap St., Jacksboro,
TX 76458. The route is about two hours and 83 miles long.
At the time this article was written there was no construction
on this route. The tour includes a rest stop, and ends with a
picnic lunch at the square in Granbury. Bring a picnic lunch
and a chair. Alternatively there are also several restaurants
in the area to choose from.
You must register for the tour at http://mav.pca.org/
Events/Tours/. We have two classes 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. After registration,
and three days before the tour, we will send you all the
information you need to participate. We hand out packets
the day of the tour with all the information as well.
The Drivers’ Briefing will begin 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 familiar
faces. Arriving early also helps our volunteers get everyone
signed in on time to keep the tour 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 in their group on the route. If you have any questions
about the event please email email@example.com.

4th Annual Halloween Gimmick Rally: HHRRR
By George Luxbacher and Don Sebert, Region Rally Co-Chairs
pphotos by Bill Orr
Have you done one of our gimmick rallies yet? If not,
you are missing one of the most enjoyable Maverick
activities available! Picture a leisurely drive through
the countryside, looking for the location of some
unique and interesting pictures we have provided, and
answering a few somewhat challenging questions based
on landmarks you pass. The driver drives, the navigator
(and passengers) navigate(s), both look for the pictures
and answer questions, and there is bliss in the car – at
least that’s how we think it works. Our participants
have noted that there may be occasional disagreements,
but we hope they are few and far between!
Our next gimmick rally, the Halloween Hair-Raising
Road Rally, or HHRRR, is scheduled for Saturday,
November 3 at 9 am. Our start location will be the
former Gander Mountain store parking lot at the
intersection of the North Dallas Tollway and Eldorado
(12277 Dallas Parkway) in Frisco. We will be travelling
through Collin, Denton, and Tarrant Counties for a
pleasant 65-mile drive.
Our Easter rally was plagued with a
freezing start, but the ghosts, goblins, and
witches have promised to be kinder to
us than the Easter Bunny was, so we are
forecasting a warm, sunny day, perfect for
Registration opens at 9 am, driver’s meeting at 9:30,
and first car out at 9:45. Every car must have a driver
and a navigator at a minimum; additional passengers
are fine, but just know that passengers often hurt rather
than improve your score. We often get a few singles that
show up and combine on race day as a team, so if you
can’t find a navigator, feel free to come on out as well.
We will have awards for first, second, and third place
finishers, as well as the coveted DLBF award (Dead Last
But Finished – you tried and there is no way to go other
than up!). Since this is a Halloween rally, we encourage
all to come out in costume and we will have costume
awards based on People’s Choice. There are rest stops
available on the route, and nothing beats seeing the
looks you get as you exit your Porsche in a knight or
While we will have primarily Porsches at the rally, if
yours is otherwise “indisposed,” feel free to join us in any
vehicle – we don’t want the Mavs to miss this opportunity!
Interested in putting on a gimmick rally in areas
other than north Dallas? We are looking for volunteers
to develop routes and pull together rallies in areas we
haven’t been to in
a while. We are
planning to hold
a rally school this
winter to discuss
types of rallies and
the planning steps
that are required. If
you are interested,
please email us at
email@example.com and we will provide further details.
We look forward to seeing you on November 3rd.
Midweek DE: MotorSport Ranch in Cresson
By Mark Pitarresi, Tours Co-Chair
photos provided by author
Wednesday, July 18 was a
day that went into the record
books. The temperature was
109 degrees at MotorSport
Ranch in Cresson, Texas. It
was a record high temperature
for that date by three degrees.
It also happened to be the date
in which our Maverick Region
added to our High Performance
Drivers’ Education program
by holding our first one-day
event; our normal HPDE
events are two or three days.
With temperatures that high,
one would think it would have
scared away attendees, but
not for the Maverick Region!
Several people on the wait list
were also on site, hoping that
there would be some no-shows
so they could participate.
With just a slight breeze,
you could hear the sounds
of crackling plastic water
bottles, torque wrench
clicks, and the air being let
out of tires as attendees
were in preparation.
I got to meet several advanced
drivers that were happy to give
tips for the track. One thing I
have noticed being a member of
the Maverick Region is that our
members are some of the
friendliest people I have ever
met, of any organization!
At the Drivers’ Meeting,
DE Chair Chris Tabor did
a slide show presentation
and cautioned everyone with
safety tips. Dr. Jeff Komenda,
a new Instructor who also
happens to be a medic, then
talked to everyone about the
symptoms of heat exhaustion
and gave prevention tips. As
the Drivers’ Meeting came to
an end, Chris Tabor talked about
Park Place Porsche and how they
had a tent and mechanics to help
if anyone had problems with their
cars. Park Place donated this service
to the event.
It was now time to get on
the track. As we returned to our
cars, the instructors introduced
themselves to everyone, looked
over the cars, and helped with tire
pressure adjustments. I already had
a goal for this event as it was my
second HPDE. My goals were to
have better awareness of the track
and other cars. I focused on looking
where I wanted the car to go,
scanning my surroundings using
After the last on-track session,
all of the attendees, volunteers, and
track workers were invited to an
informal social gathering, for which
food and beverages were provided.
Everyone had a smile on their face
as they shared highlights of the day,
and as we Mavericks like to use as
our club motto: it’s all about
Coffee Cars & Conversation
By Bill Kruder
photos by Jim Hirsch and the Author
This month I would like to
reminisce with you about a very
special friend we recently lost.
When I met him, he was already
battling cancer; frankly, if I knew
him healthy, I don’t think I could
have kept up with him. We had
a chance meeting a couple years
ago at a Porsche Cars & Coffee
on a cold blustery day in Addison
as he drove by while the rest of us
were standing in the drizzle. Since
then I would see him out with us
occasionally, always with a huge
smile on his face! This might have
been due to his 2015 Pure Whiteon-Espresso
Turbo S. In more
recent months I, and occasionally a
couple others, would meet him up
on the Celina Square for coffee and
donuts. His family said this meant
the world to him; heck it meant the
world to us to be able to sit and
listen to his stories. He not only
had stories but he brought pictures,
old Panoramas from the ‘60’s, and
racing programs from some of the
best circuits in Europe.
So here is my “conversation”
that first appeared in June 2017:
Voy “Mitch” and Marie (MA-ree)
Mitchell, owner 2015 911 Turbo
S, founding member of PCA
West Germany Region in 1963
(disbanded in 2008)
Bill Kruder: Ok, I have to ask: where
is the name Voy from? Sounds like
it’s of a European decent?
Mitch Mitchell: Oh no. Don’t think
my mom had any idea of where the
name might have originated but in
those days everyone had two names
and I guess she liked Voy Jerome so
that’s what I was called.
BK: Can’t say I have ever met a Voy before.
Mitch: Well I hadn’t either until
I went into the service and met
another; he was an officer so we
didn’t really speak until about 5-6
years ago. I was able to look him up
and we finally spoke.
BK: So what branch of the military
were you in? Did you stay in long?
Mitch: I was in the Air Force for
20 plus years; retired as a Master
Sergeant in 1978.
BK: After you retired what did you do?
Mitch: I got a job with H-E-B in the
meat processing plant, on what we
would call today the IT side of things.
BK: So you were kind of an IT guy
in the Air Force?
Mitch: No, I just kind of said I
could do it and learned. We used
a new system developed by Digital
Equipment Corporation (DEC),
who at that time was a leader
in what was then called “Mini-
Computers.” Taking courses thru
the GI Bill helped fill in the areas I
couldn’t learn on my own.
BK: And are you from here?
Mitch: No, I grew up in a small
oil patch town called Eldorado,
Texas about 45 miles south of San
Angelo. Our last assignment found
us in San Antonio and we lived
there for about 28 years, and in
2004 moved to Celina.
BK: So I understand you two just
celebrated a milestone?
Marie: Yes we did! In December we
had our 50th wedding anniversary.
BK: Where did you two meet? With your
accent you are not from “these parts”?
Marie: I’m from Ireland, but as it
turned out I was going to nursing
school near London, and Mitch was
stationed near London.
Mitch: I was stationed at RAF
Chicksands, about 50 miles north
of London. A friend I knew from
assignment in Germany threw a
party so that I could meet some
girls, and Marie was there. This was
February of 1966, and we married
in December of 1966.
BK: Wow! That must have been a
Marie: I guess you could say that; we
both worked crazy shifts too. When
I was working nights Mitch would
be working days and vice versa so
we hardly saw each other.
Mitch: I think we probably spent the
equivalent of two weeks together
in all that time from meeting to
BK: Ok so let’s talk cars. How did
you get interested in Porsches?
Mitch: Well I was stationed in
Siegelbach, West Germany in about
1962 and a good friend had a 62-63
356 1600 Super cab. Together we
would hit all the Grand Prix tracks
and I guess that just hooked me.
BK: And what was your first then?
Mitch: Well before I bought my first,
in 1963 I bought a VW 1200 Beetle,
and drove it for about six months. I
sold it and saved up so I could buy
BK: How did that work out?
Mitch: Good. I saved enough money
and put down $200 on a 1964
Signal Red 356C coupe. As I recall I
think they stickered at about $3600,
which was a huge sum for a 22 yearold
Staff Sergeant, but heck, I was
single. So in October 1963 I took
the train to the factory in Stuttgart
to take delivery of my new coupe.
After a tour of the factory I was off
on my journey.
BK: How long did you have it?
Mitch: Well I had it for about two
years, driving it all over West
Germany, and shipped it back to the
states, selling it in 1965 I believe.
BK: I understand you tracked the
car down in later years?
Mitch: I did. That car represented
a special time, and to this day I’ve
always admired the 356. It changed
hands several times over the years
and even spent time in San Antonio;
currently it’s in Long Island.
BK: And what was next?
Mitch: Well, we had a pretty big
gap between our first and second
Porsches. It wasn’t until 2014 that
we bought our second, and that
was a 2007 Carrara White on
Black Boxster. We took that out on
several Sunday Drives (now Tours),
and after driving it several months,
something with the engine just
wasn’t right. We had Al Zim check
it out and decided before we put any
money in it we would get rid of it.
Marie: This is where it gets
interesting (she laughs) . . .
BK: And how’s that?
Mitch: One day I traded it in at Park
Place for a 2015 Carrara White
Metallic on Black Boxster.
Marie: He leaves in one and comes
back in another; it’s white and
black looked nearly the same to me
Mitch: The 2015 was fun but just not
fast enough for what I wanted as we
took more drives . . . there was a
“need for speed” happening. So one
day I traded it for a 2014 Carrera S,
Pure White on Black again.
Marie: I’ve gotten pretty used to a
white and black Porsche in the garage!
BK: But this isn’t what you are
Mitch: No, I was on a drive and the
guys kidded me that there was a
turbo S in Austin available, knowing
that I had a “need for speed.” So
last November I picked up the Pure
White on Espresso Turbo S down in
Marie: Now this one I noticed
(laughing). It has such a lovely
interior color and matching top.
BK: And Marie all the time you were really
ok with all these cars coming and going?
Marie: Oh yes, Mitch has always
been such a good provider, husband,
and father! He deserves this and
And once again to think that after a
few chance meetings I would
uncover yet another great personal
story of a guy, his girl of 50-plus
years and a handful of “white”
cars. We will miss you Mitch and
will always remember we are

Maverick Marktpreis: Porsche Values
by Peter Wen
The final air-cooled 911 generation, Type 993, was
produced from ’95 to ’98. It was loved by the public and
journalists alike upon introduction. The book “Porsche 993
- Essential Companion” refers to the 993 as the “King of
Porsche.” With its classic Porsche good looks and modern
performance, it is one of the best and most desirable 911
generations today. It is no wonder that 993 is valued higher
than the 964 generation it replaced and the 996 generation

Early years 1963-1973
Tradition is a commitment. Without our tradition and without our core values, we would not be where we are today. We plan to uphold the standard of
technical excellence set by Ferry Porsche well into the future. Intelligent dynamic mobility has a great future ahead of it. And we have the solid technologi-
cal expertise, creative employees and unique team spirit to be involved. We have what it takes to ensure that the Porsche brand continues to fascinate –
even in another 70 years.
The first vehicle to bear the Porsche name was registered on June 8, 1948: It was the 356 “No.1” Roadster. This is the day on which the Porsche brand
was born. The Type 356 turned Ferry Porsche’s dream of a sports car into a reality. “His vision at that time embodied all of the values that still define the
brand to this day”, said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, at yesterday’s New Year Reception at the Porsche Museum. Repre-
sentatives from the state of Baden-Württemberg as well as from the city of Stuttgart and the worlds of politics, economics and society, joined Porsche to
celebrate the beginning of its anniversary year with the slogan “70 years of the Porsche sports car.

Commentary from the Left Seat: Brand Loyalty
By Robert Turner
Brand loyalty. What every company spends untold dollars
working to create. They build the essence of their brand around
it. Really, they love this concept. Why? Big profits. It can be status
symbols like Louis Vuitton or Tory Burch, or something simple
like your basic “double no-whip-no-foam, skinny pumpkin latte”
from Starbucks that you always order. We love what we love.
So how far does brand loyalty take us? How about the never
ending Ford versus Chevy or Chevy versus Mopar battle and
all the possible permutations therein? There are some folks that
swear by Toyota or Honda and will buy nothing else. Ever try
having an automotive conversation with any of these people?
Take a Ford guy for instance: “Don’t even get me talking about
Chevy, because you know, those cars suck.” Personally I find
those people very open minded, as long as you stick to how great
Ford products and how sucky Chevy products are, that is. This is
just an example; I’m not picking on anyone here. Not me.
So do German cars fall into this brand loyalty trap?
Heck yes! BMW guys? Check. Mercedes guys? Check. Audi
guys? Ah, I think you get it—check please! And Porsche
guys? Well we are probably the worst, at least when it comes
to being brand diehards. Come on, as a group we are so loyal to
our brand we even get into sub categories of brand fanaticism
– as in air-cooled versus water pumpers, or all fifty-three “924
guys” versus everyone else.
So does that apply to you? Hmmm. You are reading
this in a Porsche Club magazine right? And me? What
do you think? Hate to pigeon hole myself into any
particular category, but I gotta be honest with myself
here; yes I am a Porsche-brand geek. Says so right on the
shirt I am wearing right now, writing this piece: Drivers Education
February 2003, Maverick Region PCA. OK, maybe the shirt is a
bit threadbare but I love it. Yeah, guilty as charged.
My own Porsche adventure started early with a really terrible
914 I drove in college. It was an awful car, and taken as a singular
ownership event, should have scared most people (namely me)
away from the Porsche brand forever. But then something magic
happened. It was 1990 and I was recently married. So one
Saturday morning, as my bride and I read the local newspapers—
just to set the stage here, my wife loves to read the paper cover to
cover, and still does—she looked up from her paper and asked: “Is
$14,000 for a 1987 Porsche 944S with low miles a good deal?”
(Remember – this is 1990 money we are talking about here.) I put
down my section of the paper. She had just totally captured my
attention. Brand loyalty was about to strike again! And a rather
large rabbit hole had just magically popped into existence, right
in the very fabric of my living room. Brand loyalty had just made
its presence felt in the Turner household big time.
And on that exhaust note, see you next time.
Your mind’s been racing.
Decades of dreaming, fulfilled instantaneously. The iconic 911 Carrera. Legendary
handling, immediate power, and decades of motorsport heritage. It is the full
measure of a sports car. Found only in a Porsche. Porsche. There is no substitute.
The 911 Carrera.

Maverick Partner Appreciation

As the saying goes, “I couldn’t have done it without
you.” That surely holds true with all of the events
we do, whether it’s driving tours and rallies, drivers’
education, tech sessions, or monthly dinners and coffee
socials. None of those events would be a success without
the teamwork of our club volunteers and advertising
To give our appreciation
for all of the hard work
throughout the year, we held
our First Annual Maverick
Celebration. Thanks again to
one of our sponsors, Park Place
Porsche, for being gracious
enough to open up their Dallas
dealership for this first event,
which allowed our
Board to play host
to a casual buffet
had 50 attendees
from our group
of 73 volunteers
and 36 advertisers
join us Saturday,
September 15 for
a country style
included all the
fresh fruit and eggs
to biscuits and gravy. All thanks to Low Country Cuisine
for providing the food, a Bubbly Bar of different flavored
Mimosas, and of course coffee and juices.
This was just a way for us to give a big Thank You
to our members who volunteer to be early and stay late
at our events to help setup, parking, and cleanup as well
as for all of the behind the scenes organization that goes
into coordinating each and every event.
All of our events have grown in size over the years,
so another big Thank You goes to our advertisers, who

Autocross Event 6: Mirrorcross at Mineral Wells

A nice overcast day instead of the showers we were
having all week greeted 85 participants for Autocross
Championship Series Event #7 at the rolling Lone Star
Park location. It was nice to be back in town and at a
favorite site. A huge circus tent consumed a quarter of the
lot but the expert crew were able to lay out an exciting
course with many elevation changes.

Amir El-Baghdady got some expert rear axle and
suspension advice so his 944 S2 Cabriolet problems were
solved. He was putting in some terrific times in class P1.
The Wong Brothers, Ronald and Hubert, brought out
their 997s again and were going after classes P2 and P3
wins. In class P2, Alex Tambert brought his new Cayman
S out for himself and Brett Durham to wear out some old
tires that came on the car, taking the top spots in class.
In P3, Owen Coulman finally took the heat-cycled-out
R-compound tires off his car to move back into P3. We
also had two new drivers in this
class: DE participants out for
their first Autocross, daughter
and father, Kristyn and Bert Starr.
Kristyn was paying attention
and made great strides. She was
already closing in on Owen and
could keep him honest if she
stays at it. Father Bert was flying
right away and got lots of in car
instruction as well as ride-alongs
that helped a lot.
Class P4 was the Mayo 911S
vs the Schnoerr 914 2.0 with two
drivers in each car. Sigrid had
the class covered and was about
to skirt both Ed and Mark after
morning runs. A final banzai run
put Mark first in class.
Father Carey and daughter
Geneva Spreen brought the family
VW GTI to this event instead of
the usual 924S or 911SC. Good

Mavs & Mochas: Texas Harley Davidson
By Bill Bradley
photos by Bill Middleton
Rain, and lots of it, did not deter the Porsche faithful
from making the trip to Bedford, TX for a Mavs and
Mochas hosted by Texas Harley Davidson. The event,
which as sponsored by Park Place Porsche, showcased
Porsches of the 1980’s. A 928SC Carrera and a 968
were among the nearly 60 Porsches in attendance.
Park Place Porsche furnished a Panamera Tourismo
loaner, while Texas Harley Davidson provided the
Felix coffee truck. Kudos, too, to the cone squad who
assisted in getting everybody safely parked. No small
feat for reverse parking in heavy overcast.
This was the second Maverick event hosted by Texas
Harley Davidson. This time the owner understandably
kept his Porsche Carrera GT at home high and dry.
For those who have not been to Texas Harley
Davidson, and those of you heretically uninterested the
motorcycles, it is still well worth the trip.

MSR DE: First Time on a Racetrack
By Joann Talty
Ever find yourself equally frightened and excited about
something? That described me before my first DE day at
MotorSport Ranch on July 18. My fear had nothing to do
with my ability, or admittedly being a female with limited car
knowledge, but rather damaging my daily driver and having a
prolonged period of discomfort from wearing a heavy helmet.
Our day began about 1:00 pm under cover in 100+ degree
temperatures. I tightened my lug nuts, inflated my tires,
attached my tow hook, and emptied my car of its minimal
contents, including floor mats. At the counter inside, I picked
up a white helmet I reserved that thankfully came with a
white knit balaclava. Upstairs, we registered; signed waivers;
picked up the course map, schedule, sticker and checklist; and
waited for the driver’s meeting to begin.
Both Maverick Region’s first weekday event and one-day
High-Performance Driver Education (HPDE) event, DE Chair
Chris Tabor told us we’d be driving the 1.7-mile counterclockwise
version of the track. He presented a slideshow of
flags with their meanings and shared safety tips. With safety
the number one priority, followed by fun, he announced their
club record of no multi-vehicle collisions. Dr. Jeff Komenda
shared with us the importance of hydrating, suggesting
bananas and orange juice to keep levels of potassium up.
The experienced solo drivers hit the track first, while we
novices attended a meeting with instructor Mike Brodigan
downstairs. He dove into the nitty-gritty of what we’d be
learning that afternoon: 1) the best possible positions to
be in on the track; 2) inputs or maneuvers such as turning
and braking; and 3) awareness – everything other than
driving. Three goals for the day included safety; driving as
fast as skills, car, and desire allowed; and fun. Three 20 to
25-minute track sessions were scheduled for the afternoon,
followed by a social.
In the two novice groups, only seven or eight drivers
with instructors drove the track at the same time. The small
group made me very comfortable. In Pat’s experience, groups
typically have 12-15 cars. The first session was at street speeds
without helmets. Mike drove the first three laps and I drove
the second three. He told me I’d be driving it entirely in third
gear. Huh? I have a manual and I don’t have to shift? Weird.
It looked easy enough. Look far ahead, he told me, and
if I turn my head rather than just my eyes in the direction
of upcoming moves, I’d be smoother. “Don’t have happy
hands,” was another instruction, meaning one’s hands barely
need to move throughout some of the turns. Over-steering is
a common mistake. He showed me the line and told me when
to brake. When we switched places, I followed directions as
he gave them.
After the session, he asked if I had questions. I
didn’t really know what to ask but looked forward
to doing it again. Faster.
photos by courtesy MotorSport Ranch
On the track, I followed Mike’s instructions as best I
could. At faster speeds, it’s a little harder. I had those happy
hands he warned me about. I needed prompts to turn my
head, get in the right line, and brake. I took a few turns
too fast, positioned myself correctly in Ricochet and Little
Bend correctly every time, and messed up at least two turns
repeatedly, not remembering where I was on the track.
Awareness of flag stations and drivers on my butt wasn’t
easy either. On my second or third lap, I was given a pointby
and passed another driver. Typically, I was giving the
passing sign, and at least twice I offered it too late in the
passing zone. When asked why I slowed down the last few
laps, I told Mike I felt like throwing up the second half of
that session. Not sure whether it was the heat, the higher
speeds, the helmet or all of them combined, I hydrated and
enjoyed the A/C in the classroom for 30 minutes.
Session three I felt fine. Before heading out, I
apologized to the nice man who passed me in the nonpassing
zone due to my late signal. The fastest speed I
hit was 94 mph in the straightaways, and I continued to
learn from my coach. I improved in some areas, but still
messed up Horseshoe and Boot Hill turns like the session
before. Mike thought I was a quick learner and noticed
improvement from the session before.
Before the tasty social at the Drive Exotic garage with
Cane’s chicken and adult beverages, I changed out of the
required long, natural-fiber pants. Soaked from head to toe
and a bit exhausted, I was thankful for the extra change of
clothing and ball cap I brought.
I spoke to several drivers and instructors who enjoyed
the one-day experience despite my car reading 108 F at
day’s end. One of the coaches wished more women
participated in DE days. Whether it’s intimidation, lack of
automobile knowledge, or lack of interest, we weren’t sure
why. We discussed perhaps the creation of a ladies one-day
event or possibly a ladies-only novice group sometime in
the future. So, ladies, if this interests you speak up at the
socials or drives and we’ll see what transpires.

Best thing about owning a Porsche
Porsche ownership is rewarding on two fronts: The cars are incredible with timeless appeal of
their handling, speed and reliability. Their practicality ranges from grocery getter to fast laps on
track! The second is the people! Porsche owners and the camaraderie among them is incredible!
I look forward to Porsche meets as each is like a mini reunion!

By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Loyal readers, even though I have only been with you
for a short time, I feel like I know you. I feel like we share
many of the same hopes and dreams, and pitfalls of life. Does
life sometimes get you down? Kids that won’t do their math
homework. Coworkers that don’t pull their weight. Hot
water heaters that don’t make water hot anymore? I think I
have some information that could change your life. When the
stress of the day seems ever present, and you just can’t seem
to find solace, strap on a helmet and find a track. Seriously, it
works. You’ve probably heard that you can’t be angry when
you smile. Well, if my recent experience is any indication, you
can’t be too concerned about math homework while piloting
your Porsche around a track at speed. There are many
among us that have already figured this out. PSA - they’ve
been holding out on you. You don’t need a GT3 and catlike
reflexes. You don’t even need hours of watching YouTube
track videos or playing Grand Tourismo on X-Box. What
you do need is a sense of adventure and a good instructor.
The former you’ll need to muster on your own, but the latter
is in good supply in Texas, especially in the Maverick Region.
I recently attended the Austin Schnell Fest at the Circuit
of the Americas. This event is a collaboration between the
Hill Country, Lone Star, and Maverick PCA Regions along
with the Houston
chapter of BMW
CCA. They really do
a fantastic job. The
anticipation I felt
pulling onto the grid
amidst far newer
and more powerful
cars quickly faded
as we got onto the
track. Many of the

group were like myself, either the first time on a track or the
first time at COTA. We were the slower ones, but that didn’t
matter. We were there, concentrating, improving and getting
faster, AND not worried in the slightest about coworkers
or hot water heaters. It just wasn’t possible. It was like
an amusement park that you are in control of. A serious
amusement park, but still.
So, take a mental health break and take advantage of the
programs and experience your membership in the PCA and
Maverick Region affords you. Your family might just thank
you. Enjoy the drive!
