On Sunday, October 28, 110 participants

arrived and found an incredibly fast course

laid out on the vast and rolling Lone Star Park

parking lot.

There were 14 official Porsche entries, and one

who could not stay for his work assignment so is not

included in the official results. More on that later . . .

fight to the class championship extend to the final event

number 10. Amir took the win this time. We will see

how that one unfolds soon.

Class P3 saw David Valdez in his beautiful white 991

take the win over both Mel Stanley in his Cayman S

and first time autocrosser Dawn Marie Gray driving her

yellow GT4. Based on her progress and her background

racing bicycles, she is going to be a challenger to

everyone in this class.

Class P4 saw the six drivers in three cars fighting it

out again: 911, 924S, and 914 2.0. The top four drivers

were pretty close until yours truly put in a real flyer on

the last run, in an effort to unseat Porsche FTD from

the surprise “unofficial” Porsche entry we had that day.

Scott Wolthuis had fun with his 300,000-mile 1975

911 Outlaw in class P6, and Doug Edney, still waiting

to install his sport suspension in his 996, was flying in

class P7.

The mystery participant was PCA Club Racer TJ

Kroehle. No, he did not bring his 991 Cup Car, but

his White 991/2 C4 GTS PDK Cabriolet. TJ has not

autocrossed for about 40 years, but jumped right in to

the fray. Like all fast courses, especially in autocross,

there are turns and plenty of them. It was a new-tech vs

old-tech battle for first quick Porsche time, even though

TJ would not be in the final results.

The final event of the season took place the next

weekend, Nov 4. More on that in a separate article!
