SPROCKETS: Driving Year Round
By David Robertson, Region President
I recently spoke with a friend of mine in New
York who was prepping his new Cayman for
winter storage. Aside from being very sad that he
would not be able to enjoy driving his Porsche for
the next 5-6 months, he detailed the ritual that
takes place every year in November.
• Detail the car
• Fill the tank
• Add fuel stabilizer
• Put the wheels in cradles to prevent flat spots
• Arrange silica gel packs strategically to
• Cover the car
• Get the latest version of the Forza video
game to at least simulate the ability to get
out and drive
That seems to me like a lot of wasted time,
energy, and heartache when you can just live
in Texas where we enjoy driving our two-door
Porsches any season!
I lived many years in Boston, and now that I
am back in DFW, I wonder why anyone would
put themselves through this yearly misery! Many
of you have lived in areas of the country where
this was on your yearly checklist and will probably
agree that we have it pretty good down here for
Although there have been a few times in past
years here in DFW that I have not been willing to
venture out in the rare ice and snow, for the most
part it has been pretty good. Since there are usually
no chemicals or salt on the roads, with a little sun
things are usually back to normal pretty quick.
After having the conversation with my friend
in New York I decided to take advantage of some
good weather and go for a drive in my 911 to
experience the thrill that I always get on a good
twisty road. I don’t need much of an excuse to get
out but this time I appreciated it just a little bit
more than usual.
MAVS OF THE MONTH:
Mark Pitarresi and Brant
Worrell, Tours Co-Chairs
Have you been on one of our tours recently?
If so it is no surprise that the team of Mark and
Brant are well deserving of our recognition.
These two work tirelessly to insure the Maverick

make them safe and enjoyable for everyone and
our members are giving them rave reviews! There
is a ton of behind the scenes work that goes in
to each of these events, from route creation and
pre-drives (to make sure there are no surprises
such as closed roads or unacceptable pavement)
to setting up destination venues and organizing
a team of fantastic volunteers to make sure every
base is covered. Mark and Brant, thank you for
your tireless efforts to make the Maverick Region
Tour program so great!

Maverick DE Program Evolves to Fill a Void
By Mark Schnoerr

PCA was one of the first organizations to offer race
track driver education events. The membership was
already doing autocross, so it was natural stepping stone
for many to learn the skills and to experience even more
of what their Porsches were designed to do so well.
Naturally, we needed instructors, presentations, and safety
rules, and the program grew while spawning other car
clubs and organizations to enter the arena. If you want
to drive fast, there are now many organizations running
track day drivers’ education programs, Time Trials, and
but mostly on-track driving sessions that focused on the
elements of track driving: acceleration, hard braking,
low and high speed slaloms, lane change exercises, and
learning the proper line around the track. We even had
use of the skidpad to teach the nuances of controlling
understeer, oversteer, and steady-state cornering using
combinations of braking, steering, and accelerating. At
the end of the day, we did some lead/follow exercises to
combine all the skills, still without putting tires, brakes,
or drivers at risk by limiting speeds and enforcing a nopassing
rule. Our instructor corps stepped up to make
Some organizations require autocross experience, a car
control clinic, or skidpad training to prepare the student
(client) for the race track driving experience. Those clients
are much more prepared for what they will experience
on track and can learn very quickly. They have magnetic
numbers for their cars, own a helmet, and can’t wait to
graduate to ever-faster run groups as they work their way
through the program. However, there are others who are
looking for a less risky way to get more than a few touring
laps on track without all that risk to the car, tires, and
brakes of a classic DE participant.
Some of our local Porsche dealers have been looking for
something the more exciting for their 4-door customers
and fledgling enthusiasts to try to get more enjoyment
from their amazing cars without jumping all the way into
DE. So the club took a chance to modify the last event of
the season to make this happen.
On Saturday, October 20, the entire program was
focused on coached race track training. The instructor
group was the only other group on track all day. We added
a Car Control Clinic program to the usual beginner and
intermediate Green and Blue Group instructed sessions.
On Sunday, we did the opposite, with no instruction
and a solo-approved-only track day for those who are
totally committed to DE.
The Car Control Clinic on Saturday was to include no
passing, moderate speeds, no numbers on the cars, and no
helmets, to experience what was essentially a deconstructed
Green run group. There were multiple classroom sessions,
this happen, and the CCC clients were full of smiles while
enjoying the experience. The Park Place Porsche team who
brought clients to the CCC were equally impressed with
the pilot program.
Here are a few of the writeups we received after
the Car Control Clinic:
I wanted to test and enjoy my 964 in an unrestricted
way, so I signed up for the PCA Drivers’ Education Car
Control Clinic at MotorSport Ranch. Since I’ve never
even felt the ABS kick in, I thought this group was a good
place to start. No helmet or car numbers were needed, and
speeds were reasonable, which is actually fast for an aircooled
car. There was a braking exercise, instructed laps
where I learned about cornering, a slalom course, and
some classroom instruction mixed in, all of which was
high yield. Driving the 964 in its natural environment also
allowed me to test and verify my car’s systems. I had so
much fun, I’m going to sign up for the next event so I can
drive my Porsche the way it was designed to be driven. The
saying that it’s more fun to drive a slow car fast might be
true but I wouldn’t know; my 964 is fast. - Jason Bentow
On Saturday, October 20, at my husband’s urging, I got
up way too early to make my way over to a racetrack in
Cresson, Texas for a day of learning – learning about my
car and seeing firsthand where my husband has spent so
many weekends away from home over the past five years.
My car is a 2016 Cayenne Diesel named Blanche. I
was told this would be an opportunity to find out how my
car performs on a track, including some special exercises
involving high-speed maneuvers. Get me some coffee, and
bring it on!
We arrived in Cresson a little before 8:30, registered,
and got prepped by some sharp young men from Park
Place Porsche. Although numbers weren’t required for this
group of beginners, my husband insisted that I wear my
newly assigned 528 in black on my white Cayenne. I could
have spent that $30 on wine for after the Clinic, but he
wanted me to look the part for my first event.
At about 9:30, and for the next hour and a half, we
put our cars through their paces: full acceleration followed
by full stop several times on each of two laps. I had no
idea how well Blanche could come to a controlled stop!
Instructor Rick seemed to be having as much fun as I
was. From there, we moved on to the next segment to
see how many cones we could hit in the slalom. I’m still
apologizing to Robin Howard for taking down so many of
her “children.” The final morning exercise was the Mosh
Pit, known to those at the event as the Skid Pad, showing
us how small changes in the accelerator pedal translate
to big changes in the turning radius. Instructor Tom was
great about teaching through my eccentricities. After a
handful of circles in both directions, we paused for lunch
and to let some other groups out on the track.
After lunch, we had another hour and a half scheduled,
including braking to a full stop with the electronic
emergency brake, high-speed lane changes, and the final,
ultimate session: putting together all that we’d learned
through the day in a Lead/Follow group. Several groups of
four or five of us got behind an instructor for lots of laps
around the track, by ourselves, no instructor in the car
and at speeds that let you feel how the car really handled.
Instructor Peter started the afternoon but couldn’t eject
himself from the passenger seat fast enough. It’s possible
he was unnerved by Bête the stuffed Bat hanging from the
rear seat grab handle.
Instructor John closed out the day with a steady hand
and solid advice. Classroom time throughout the day, led
by Instructor Mark Schnoerr, did a great job of augmenting
our on-track activities.
I knew I’d had a good time when I started talking to
a couple of girlfriends the next day about joining me in
Cresson in the future.
Thanks for the introduction. - Lisa Mitchell

Control Clinic, incorporate elements, work more closely
with the dealers, and take advantage of this low-risk
stepping stone approach to bringing new participants into

Maverick Tech Session Series: Insurance
By Michael Baynton, Region Tech Session Chair
Think back—how much time did you spend researching the
purchase of your Porsche(s)? Deciding on the specific model, the
“must have” options, the color, even the dealership or private
seller from which to purchase. And that’s before you even sit
down and consider the selling price and what you are willing
to pay for your new toy. All that time spent to get just the right
car at just the right price. And then most people just call their
current insurance company to add the additional vehicle to their
policy—probably with the exact same coverage as the family
SUV or grocery-getter. And that last decision might the right
one. Or it might be all wrong.
Does your Porsche have ACV (actual cash value) coverage?
Or maybe a “Stated value” or “Agreed value” policy?
If you drive your 911 through Fancytown
and happen to bump into a new Ferrari
488, do you have enough coverage to
pay for the damages?
And if you have special “Classic car” insurance on your
garage queen 356, when exactly can you drive your baby and
still be adequately insured?
These topics and more were covered during our latest tech
session, held on November 3 at Park Place Porsche. Justin
Husman from Phoenix Insurance provided a comprehensive
overview of the various types of coverages available, and
touched on the pros and cons of each. While the focus was
primarily on car insurance, he also covered homeowner and
umbrella policies as well as track insurance. (Fun fact: if
you purchase track insurance for a weekend HPDE day and
somehow manage to make contact with another car on track,
you are out of luck! The coverage you purchased typically
only covers damage to your car if you make contact with a
barrier or wall. Who knew?)
In addition to highlighting the differences between the
various policies, Justin also delved into the differences between
the types of insurance providers and independent brokers. He
provided great advice and “insider” insight into the insurance
business, and a healthy Q&A session from our 40+ members
in attendance turned out to be very enlightening. Suffice it to
say that quite a few will be doing additional research on their
current insurance policies!
A big thank-you goes out to G.M. Patrick Huston and Liz
Shafton at Park Place Porsche, who graciously allowed us to
use their training room for this tech session. As he always
does, Patrick greeted our members and made himself available
to our members to show them around the dealership. Also, to
Justin Husman for presenting the info and providing donuts
and coffee. And lastly, lots of appreciation for the MAV PCA
volunteers who came early to help set up and leave late to
help with clean-up! Stay tuned for an even better slate of tech
sessions coming in 2019!!

Park Place Supercar Showcase: Member Perspective
By Our Members
pphotos provided by Micheal Durovick and Bill Middleton
Park Place held their second Supercar Showcase on October 13th. With over 100 million in
vehicles on display, it was memorable, and wet. We asked some our members to share their
impressions of the show with us. It’s not just the cars, it’s the people.
My Dad once told me, “Son, when
you see a hog running around with a
stick in its mouth, it’s going to rain . . . .” That was his
reaction to seeing me for the first time with a cigar in
my mouth. What in the heck does that have to do with
the Park Place Luxury and Supercar Showcase? Well,
maybe nothing, but judging from this article’s picture,
maybe everything, because it was surely raining . . . a
lot . . . almost all day.
But torrents of rain did nothing to deter diehard
gearheads of all types who brought their cars out in the
weather to participate in the second annual event. A
few adjustments to the layout, a large and well stocked
pavilion, sponsored suites, and a lot of avid autophiles
ensured another successful show. By mid-afternoon, the
rain had dissipated and the crowds were at full strength.
In my opinion, the Car Corral was even better than
last year’s, as there were some seldom-seen exotics
such as the De Tomaso Mangusta, one of my all-time
favorites. And of course, the Park Place show cars
provided something special for anyone.
And let’s not forget the catered suites and samplings
from some of the finest restaurants in the area. Delicious
bites and an open bar made for an excellent experience.
Once again, Park Place showed how to put on a firstclass
event in first-class style. I had second thoughts
about showing my car in the rain, but in retrospect, I
wouldn’t trade the day’s adventure for anything.
Weather notwithstanding, the
2018 Park Place Luxury and
Supercar Showcase gives the Dallas/Fort Worth market
a glimpse of the sophistication and grandeur of the
Monterey/Pebble Beach experience. The combination
of people-watching, car-spectating, and edible delights
within the country club venue gives Park Place an event
they can be proud of.
Our favorite moment was getting to talk to
the owners of a 1972 Citroen SM, with whom
my husband discussed the finer points of the
amazing hydraulic system and its ability to assist
in changing a tire without a jack. Both the Citroen
SM and next year’s event are high on our bucket
list. We would like to thank Park Place Porsche,
The Four Seasons Resort, all of the volunteers, and
especially the PCA Maverick Region for extending
the invitation to include our car in the event.
Obviously this was not the best
day for such an event, and the way
the cars ended up being displayed was not the planned
arrangement. That being said, it must have taken a lot of
quick thinking to make it work, keeping the cars accessible
for guests and cars safe and clean for owners. I think the
general image of the tents and the display cubicles was
very nice and fit for a high-end event such as this.
We enjoyed the off-area hospitality in the rooms, a
nice place to chat and get away from the weather and
crowd. The food/beverage area was well laid out, and
options were so numerous that everyone must have
been able to find something they liked. I’m sure a lot of
entrants were scared away because the concours area
was a little sparse, so I appreciate those that did make it
in (I think I’ll enter the fun next year)!
The event seems to be a growing entity, so I think a
more organized parking program should be instituted.
The events going on in the tent were a little confusing
to me (perhaps more car-oriented vendors?) and sound
could have been better, but as I said, I’m sure if weather
had played nice it would have been less manic in there.
Staff were all very helpful and would definitely return
in 2019 and encourage others to do so!

I have to say that the Luxury
and Supercar Showcase’s name
certainly does it justice. The Showcase was SUPER!!
(Anybody having a 70s slang flashback? Cue the go-go
dancers.) There were super cars, super food and drinks,
super people, and oh yes --super amounts of rain . . . .
In today’s vernacular I’d say everything was “extra.”
My love affair with cars goes way back and so did
some of the cars. I thought I knew cars, but there were
makes and models there that I’d never heard of. The
display was truly amazing. And the rain was kind
enough to finally let up, so we could all go out and
look at them without having to wear our life jackets. In
addition to the cars and food was the entertainment,
and no, I don’t mean the fashion show . . . there was
people-watching at its finest. Yep! I had a fantastic
time. A big thank you to all who made it possible. I
can’t wait for next year!
Coffee, Cars & Conversation
By Bill Kruder
photos by Brant Worrell
This month, once again, has an
interesting winding road. We first
met last May at the Frisco Rail
Yard Mavs & Mochas, but this
would not have happened had he
first not met our mutual friend
Mitch. Mitch was dropping off a
package at the UPS store months
earlier and Brant walked up to
Mitch and told Mitch that he was
driving Brant’s dream car… a white
911 Turbo S. From there these two
strangers started talking about
Porsches. They part ways without
thinking to get a number, so like
any good stalker Brant turned
to the Maverick Region’s Yahoo
email board and asked if any one
knew this guy in a white turbo
cab wearing suspenders. Well our
good friend James Shoffit quickly
figured out that it’s Mitch. James
connects these two together, Mitch
introduces him to Mavs & Mochas,
and as they say the rest is history.
So here is the next in my series of
“conversations” I would like to
share with you . . .
Brant Worrell, Enthusiast since 1976,
Owner 2003 996 turbo, 1988 944, and
2006 Cayenne Turbo S
Bill Kruder: You sound like you
might be from here?
Brant Worrell: No, I’m actually from
Colorado Springs, Colorado. I
didn’t move here till 1998, when I
moved to Plano, before moving on
to Frisco, before stopping off for
a short break in the Valley Ranch
area in Irving, before finding my
way to McKinney in 2014!
BK: What about college? I always
see you wearing a Buffalo cap?
BW: Oh yes, I went to University of
Colorado Boulder. I have a Poly Sci
degree, for the lack of anything else.
I really didn’t know what I wanted
to do other than own Porsches and
that needed a degree (laughing).
BK: What brought you here?
BW: Like so many, a job. I was
working for a company in NW
Arkansas and was looking for a new
opportunity, and it was in DFW.
BK: And what type of work do you do?
BW: Well after college I went to
culinary school in Hyde Park, New
York. I like to joke I went into the
CIA, which I did, just not that one in
Langley, Virginia (laughing). It was
the Culinary Institute of America. I
always thought I had a passion for
cooking, but what I learned is that
I had the skills to cook, just not the
passion to work 60 hours a week,
seven days a week and holidays for
very little money. So after a short
stint in hotels and country clubs
I went into being a research chef
for Simmons Poultry in Northwest
Arkansas; think Tyson Foods, just
much smaller. After “getting my
legs under me” on the research side
of cooking, I joined Illes Seasonings
& Flavors here in the Dallas area
as their first research chef on staff.
After thirteen years as Director of
Culinary I moved into sales for
Illes about seven years ago. We
make flavor systems for the food
industry. We don’t make the end
foods consumers buy -- we make
them taste better!
BK: Now you talk about passion.
What did you discover you had a
BW: Don’t get me wrong: I like what
I do. However, I figured out I had a
passion for Porsches very early on
in my life. I was the kid who had
every square inch of his bedroom
(including the ceiling) covered in
Porsche posters -- not music or
girl posters (wish I still had a lot of
those posters), and if I was going
to be able to pursue that passion I
had to have a good job. So as they
sometimes say, you can live to work
or work to live, and my work allows
me to enjoy owning Porsches.
BK: Where did this “passion” for
Porsches come from?
BW: I like to say I was born into
the Porsche club; it’s in my DNA.
Both my parents were Porsche
enthusiasts, especially my father.
BK: What’s your first memory of being around the cars
that made you realize this is what you wanted?
BW: That’s easy: it was 1976. I was nine years old and
my parents took me and my brother to the Parade in San
Diego. Porsche introduced the 924 at the Parade and I
thought it was the coolest car (laughing)! Remember, I
BK: So Mom and Dad were active in PCA?
BW: Oh they were more than active they lived and
breathed it. My dad was President of both the Alpine
Mountain and Rocky Mountain Regions in Colorado
and mom held several positions in each region as well.
Dad was also the Zone 9 rep for years. Matter of fact
he was the Chairman for the 1988 Colorado Springs
Parade and Treasurer of the 1998 Steamboat Parade.
BK: What about Mom?
BW: Well she of course supported him throughout all
this, but her passion was the track. She once got top
track time of the day at an event. I remember it clearly:
it was in La Junta, Colorado; I don’t think my father
was happy about all the ribbing from the guys that day,
and she was a DE instructor too.
BK: What did they drive back then?
BW: They tracked an incredibly fast 914/6 but over the
years had several cars. One of my favorites was a white
1980 SC with red interior; matter of fact that’s why I
love white 911s today. They also had several 928s, a
1972 911T, a Carrera, and a 968.
BK: What was your first car?
BW: Wish I could say a Porsche but it was back in 1985
and it was 1976 VW Scirocco. It was kind of a mess but
it was a great car.
BK: So what was your first Porsche?
BW: It was a 1981 SC, pewter metallic; I bought that in
1997 and had it for about three years.
BK: I think you told me you have had several since?
BW: That I have. We had a white 968 coupe, a 928 GTS,
and a 1988 924 SE. And of course today we have the
996 turbo, the 944, and our daily driver, a Cayenne
BK: Let’s switch gears for a minute. I had the pleasure
of meeting your wife Leigh Anne recently. How did you
BW: Well as it happens, life gets complicated, and I
was going through a divorce. Leigh Anne was working
for a company who sold to our company. There was
a business lunch set up that I was suppose to attend
but I could not make it at the last minute. I called to
apologize for missing the meeting and that’s when I
learned she had been through a rough divorce so we
started talking a lot. We were talking one day when, out
of the blue, she said, “you know I REALLY like you.”
I was like “what?” as I turned bright red (laughing).
She’s this pretty woman and I’m this mess of a guy who
never dreamed of dating someone as beautiful and kind
as Leigh Anne. So after my divorce was final, we started
dating. It took me nine years to convince her I was THE
ONE, but she finally agreed to make me the happiest
and luckiest guy in the world and married me in April
Every month as I write the interview I think the same
thing, what if:
Brant and Mitch never said hello?
Brant never took the time to find the guy in the white
James didn’t bother to respond to the Yahoo post?
And if Mitch never introduced his new friend to me?
So if and when you meet someone new, don’t miss out
on “Driving Friendships!”
Contact me to learn how you can get
the most out of retirement.

Maverick Marktpreis: Cayman GT4
by Peter Wen
In 2007 Porsche introduced the Cayman, much to driving
enthusiasts’ delight. Essentially a hardtop Boxster, the Cayman
was a true driver’s car. With the rigidity of its chassis and the
ideal engine placement, the car handled brilliantly. By the time
the 2nd gen Cayman (981) was launched, it was so good, it
legitimately challenged the flagship 911. Then in 2016, Porsche
did the unthinkable. It gifted the Cayman with GT treatment
and a powerful 911 S engine. The Cayman GT4 was born.
All Porsche GT (Gran Turismo) cars are special. These street
legal race cars have a loyal following. The one-year only, limited
production GT4 is no exception. Since its introduction, GT4
routinely sells at a premium above MSRP. With the 991.1 GT3
only available in PDK, and the 991.2 911 going all turbo, people
speculated the GT4 may be one of the last Porsche with a proper
6-speed manual and a naturally aspirated engine.
Today, these concerns have largely subsided. Porsche once
again offers GT3 (991.2) with manual transmissions. The
upcoming 718 Cayman GT4 will still be powered by flat-six
naturally aspirated engines. As the result, the 981-gen GT4 price
has retracted to a more reasonable level. If you dream of owning
a 911-powered, mid-engine, 2-seat sports car, the timing maybe
right to check out a GT4 this holiday season.
Excellence’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide
offered these price ranges for the Cayman GT4 (981):
2016 - $95,000-$115,000
Fun Fact: GT4’s 3.8L flat-six was from the 911 S. It has 35 more ponies than the base 911. It’s
entire front suspension is lifted from the GT3. Yet, it weighs nearly 400 lbs and 180 lbs less than
the 911 S and GT3, each respectively.

A New Porsche Dealership Just Opened!
By Joel Nannis, Club Race Co-Chair
photos provided by author
Now don’t get too excited because it’s not in the
Dallas Fort Worth area, it’s in Hamburg, Germany.
During the summer, Erika and I were in Germany
for a month visiting her relatives. On August 6 her
cousin Soeren told us that a new Porsche dealership
was opening that day. Knowing how much I am into
Porsches, he asked if I would like to go to the opening.
That day we went to the Elbe, the new performing
arts center in Hamburg. It is a huge building that has a
walkway (about 15 stories high, accessed by the longest
escalator I have ever seen) around the outside of the
building which offers a great view of the city. Then we
took the train to the dealership.
The dealership had around 80 new cars inside. There was
every model that Porsche makes. They had all sorts of food
and drink. I went up to one of the salesmen and said that I
had come all the way from Dallas just for their opening. The
salesman did not even smile and returned to his computer
screen with no acknowledgment. I tried another salesman
with the same result. I asked someone if they had any
Porsche shirts with the dealership name and city on it and
was told no, but they had the standard Porsche shirts that
every other dealership has. They had a huge video display
showing Dr. Porsche with one of his cars.
We looked around and noted that a new GT3 was
only 117,000 euros and a standard 991 was 127,000
euros. For some reason Erika would not let me purchase
the GT3. We spent about an hour looking at the cars and
finally it was
time to leave. I
had never seen
Porsches in a
show room. It
was great to see
so many great
Porsches! I left
drooling . .

the everyday driver,

Autocross Event 9: Lone Star Park
By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
photos provided by Author
On Sunday, October 28, 110 participants
arrived and found an incredibly fast course
laid out on the vast and rolling Lone Star Park
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 . . .
Class P1 saw the Amir El-Baghdady / Carolle Liu

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
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!
Mavs & Mochas: Pearl Cup Coffee
By Pat Carmichael
The frost was literally on the pumpkin this morning.
When I arrived, thanks to the sun being out, it was up
to 33 degrees from 30 when I got up. Brrrrr . . . . But
despite the weather, this month’s Mavs & Mochas was
amazingly well-attended, with over 125 cars, and,
considering the weather, it would certainly qualify as a
gathering of the faithful. Coats, hats, and gloves were
the uniform of the day, but a few hardy souls were in
light jackets and maybe a cap. I did notice that, once
they got parked, almost all scooted over to the Pearl
Cup Coffee Shop for a warm beverage and treat, as the
line was about out the door. All, after stocking up with
something warm, it was back out to join the crowd of
enthusiasts first accumulating around the 16 or so 964s
and then exploring the diverse collection of P-cars. Of
special note, was a new GTS Club Coupe (blue and
awesome), the first I have seen in person. All were fun
to see and we experienced lots of great camaraderie;
another great Mavs & Mochas!

Member Story: My Wife is Always Right, Always Right
By William Shirk
Up until about a year and a half ago I admired
Porsche from afar. As chance would have it, at that time
my wife Cindy and I found our search for a new SUV
had taken us to the showroom of a Porsche dealership
looking at Cayennes. While we waited for the salesman
to bring one around to test drive, I walked the floor
(this is as bright as petting puppies). Standing next to a
brand new Cayman S, I admired her and yes, lovingly
stroked her haunches imagining what could be. While
I stood there my wife walked up to me and asked what
was on my mind. I said that what I REALLY wanted was
this lovely example of German engineering. Without
hesitation she said, “So buy one.”
Now we all have events in our lives (dependent on
length) for which we will remember where we were
when they happened. When Kennedy was shot, when
Neil Armstrong stepped out on the moon, when our
daughter was born, when I was told it was OK to buy a
Porsche mid-engine machine. I wasn’t sure I had gotten
her comment right, and sheepishly I asked her to say it
again. She said, “If you want a Cayman S, buy one,”
only this time she added a qualifier of “a nice used one.”
Our friend Tatiana has a Panamera, and Cindy has
gone with her on a few road rallies, after which she
mentioned that we ought to get a Porsche and join in
the fun. Well, she says that she said it, but IF I heard
that in the past, I must have passed it off as just an
offhand comment. But here I was with a green light to
join the club!
Fast forward about 10 days and we had adopted a
2007 Carmine Red Cayman S, and she (yes, all things
of strength and beauty are feminine; the same goes with
aircraft and ships) rests in our garage and gets taken
out on weekends to stretch her legs and participate in
various driving events.
Something I earned in the Marines: when they
tell you your jet will go 1.8 times the speed of
sound, you are duty-bound to check it out.
When Porsche says your car will go 173 mph, you
are duty-bound to confirm it. Thank God for some of
those stretches of roads in west Texas around Marfa.
And yes, we did pick up a Cayenne as my daily driver
a month or two later as well!

Maverick Halloween Rally 2018: Recap
By Tom Martin
photos by George Luxbacher
Somewhere deep within the contiguous parking lot
that is the Plano – Allen – Frisco - McKinney continuum,
the 4th Annual Halloween Gimmick Rally, aka the
Halloween Hair-Raising Road Rally, was held on the first
Saturday morning of November.
After a night of driving rain engulfed the DFW
Metroplex, a dry blustery wind swept throughout the area
in the early morning, providing a cool, refreshing climate
for the 2018 version of the Rally.
Start point was the expansive parking lot of the
now defunct Gander Mountain outdoor sports store in
Frisco. The largest turnout to date attended this Rally:
86 Mavericks in 41 Porsches gathered to participate.
Rallymeisters George Luxbacher and Don Sebert
composed a route that challenged the drivers and
navigators with a series of 18 perplexing questions and
16 unique and distinctive photographs.
In keeping with the spirit of the Rally, over 60% of the
participants dressed in inventive costumes, ranging from
the weird to the sublime.
The first of 41 teams departed the start point around
10:00 am, headed on an 82-mile voyage on backroads
throughout Collin and Grayson counties. One couldn’t
have asked for a more picture-perfect sunny autumn
day. Traversing the wide open roads surrounding Ray
Roberts Lake, one would imagine that Porsche drivers
would be tempted to explore the upper regions of the car’s
performance. But this being a Rally, the tortoise, rather
than the hare, seems to excel at this type of event. In fact,
one team was stopped by the local constabulary to ask
why they were going so slow.
A few hours later, the first of the Porsches landed
at the Hula Hut in Little Elm. After an eclectic lunch,
participants were asked to vote to determine the Best
After Rallymeisters George Luxbacher and Don Sebert,
along with their dedicated crew, tallied the teams’ scores, the
final results were announced. Sparkly medals were awarded
to the top three winners of the best costume contest, plus
the top three finishers of the Rally, and of course, the highly
coveted DLBF (Dead Last But Finished) team.
Overall Rally Winners were: (driver/navigator)
1st Mary Anderson and Tom Cundari
2nd Jena Graf and Joshua Egly
3rd Mathew and Jena Krebs
Top: Tom and Becky Gomer Middle: Louie De Vega and Alvin Cando
Bottom: Costume contest winners.
In the Best Costume category, Michael Graves garnered
third place dressed as Waldo, but most people had a hard
time finding him. Carey Spreen and Sue Crimm secured
second place in a sort of voodoo priest/day of the dead motif,
and Tom and Beckie Gomer captured first place medals as
Mario and Luigi of the classic Nintendo video game.
Louie De Vega and Alvin Cando piloted their X-Wing
Starfighter to scoop up the coveted DLBF (Dead Last, But
George Luxbacher always stressed that the idea of the
Rally was to have fun rather than be competitive, but
one couldn’t help but notice that the medal winners were
having more fun than the rest of the group. Just sayin’ .

Congratulations and many thanks to organizers

PCA Tours Recap : MotorSport Ranch Tour
By Don Anderson
photos by Robert Kirby, Lightspeed Images
It’s not very often that a Maverick Region event hits
more than one high note, but the latest PCA Tour to
Motorsport Ranch achieved just that.
Once at the track, 53 drivers charged onto the track,
albeit at a relatively sedate pace. While the misting rain
rendered the course a bit slippery, everyone emerged
from the track safely, and no
animals were harmed in the
running of this event. Well,
except for the BBQ part of
the event, but then again . .
. who’s counting?
After the parade laps,
participants were treated to
the obligatory all-you-caneat
Texas BBQ, featuring
five meats with all the fixins’,
The event incorporated:
• a typical Maverick Tour along the backroads
• parade laps at Motorsport Ranch
• a substantial donation to a charitable organization
• an all-you-can-eat Texas BBQ lunch
• a preview of the new 2019 Porsche models
The penultimate PCA Tour of the 2018 season was
held just a few hours after the autumnal equinox.
Participants were greeted with cooler
temperatures and a consistent misting
rain. It became obvious that summer had
left the building.
Despite the weather, an incredible total of 93 Porsches
and 132 Porschephiles assembled at a clandestine location
along the 32nd latitude somewhere in Texas. Final
destination: Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, TX.
Working in conjunction with the Maverick HPDE
program, Tour Co-Chair Mark Pitarresi arranged for
Tour drivers to complete parade laps of the 3.1 mile circuit
between DE sessions. A small donation was required to
take to the track, with all proceeds earmarked for Patriot
PAWS, a group dedicated to providing service dogs at no
cost to disabled American veterans. A total of $1,465.00
was collected for the charity.
The Tour itself was a short 56.1-mile excursion
along country roads southwest of the DFW Metroplex.
The drivers were split into nine groups, each departing
Ground Zero in two minute intervals. Light rain increased
and subsided all along the route, adding a little bit more
excitement to the Massey Road part of the route, which
already has a pretty high “pucker factor.”
provided by Roscoe’s Smokehouse. The catered meal was
served inside the new DriveXotic building, with diners
sharing space with several brightly colored exotics. A new
2019 Mahogany Cayenne occupied center stage, courtesy
of Zorin Gutic of Autobahn Porsche.
Autobahn Porsche also supplied three of the four
Porsches used to lead the parade lap groups: a Carrera
T in Guards Red, a 2019 Panamera Sport Tourismo 4S
in Carrara While, and a 2019 Cayenne, also in Carrara
White. Chris Sorrells’ striking Miami Blue GT3 4.0
rounded out the parade lap leaders.
As an added bonus, Robert Kirby of Lightspeed Images
stationed himself along the Tour route to capture high
resolution snapshots of participants’ Porsches at speed,
and then again at the track.
All of this would not be possible without the efforts of
a small army of dedicated Maverick volunteers. So, big
shout-outs go to: Tour Co-Chairs Mark Pitarresi and
Brant Worrell, and Group Leaders Tom Martin, Derrick
Tate, Ted Martin, Jay Lynch, Sam Bryant, Scott Garwood,
Paul Ozmer, and Ed Martelle. On the track side, thanks to
Chris Tabor and his crack DE crew, as well as John
Hamilton, Jeff Komenda, Chris Tabor, and Chris Sorrells
for leading the parade laps. Props also to Autobahn
Porsche for sneak peeks of the new 2019 Porsche models,
and Robert Kirby for all the fantastic photos.

Member Moment - 25th PCA Anniversary, October 2018
Lee and Dixie Oneacre
Retired Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon
Bahia Red 1970 911T. I bought this car after having visited the Porsche
factory in Stuttgart during a European college summer staying in 3 dollar
per day youth hostels.
I have owned at least one Porsche continuously since 1970 and currently drive a GT Silver
Metallic 2010 997.2 Turbo with only 22,000 miles on the odometer
Most memorable Maverick or PCA event
I have been an “armchair” car nut and Porschephile for over 50 years. I attend most Mavs and
Mochas. I fondly remember when the PCA National Meeting was in Fort Worth many years ago.
Best thing about owning a Porsche
I enjoy everything regarding Porsche. The technical excellence of the cars, the many publications
related to Porsche, and the congeniality of fellow Porsche drivers make ownership worthwhile.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
My story of becoming a shade-tree mechanic starts
many years ago in a suburb outside New Orleans. In my
youth, I had the chance to work on a Porsche 935. It
didn’t end well. Let me explain.
It was beautiful, blue with red, orange and yellow
stripes and the number 49 emblazoned on the doors. My
father brought it home in the hopes that it would satisfy
my quest for speed. He was right on, but it awakened
yet another curiosity. The desire to take things apart.
Little did he know (or maybe he did and never wanted
to admit it) that desire would never leave. Even after I
left the car he brought home in a hopeless pile of parts
he encouraged me to remain curious. Probably after he
shook his head and sighed.
You’ve probably figured out by now, the Porsche
he brought home didn’t come from Zuffenhausen, but
instead from Mattel, assembled in Hong Kong. You see,
it was a Drive Command radio control Porsche 935. And
the memory of ‘working’ on it never left. It was so vivid
in fact that earlier this year I tracked one down, brand
new in it’s box, and it sits in my office to remind me to
remain curious. It also reminds me that things are usually
much more fun when there are no left-over pieces.
Since my beginnings, I’ve become a little better at
getting all of the pieces back together. I’ve gotten so
good in fact that most of my repairs don’t require a
trip to a qualified mechanic. Most of them. As I write
this, on my desk sits a box full of parts that just arrived
today. I’m tracking down a surging idle condition and
instead of paying someone with a vast knowledge of the
car and having it back on the road in 2 days, this brain
of mine thinks is much more fun to have pieces strewn
all over the garage and a car I can’t drive until I get it all
back together. I tell myself I’m saving money (ha!) and
I’ll feel that sense of accomplishment when it’s all back
together, but I think it’s really just that I feel like that
little kid taking apart his first car all over again.
I missed being able to share my first german built
Porsche with my father by about a year, but I’m pretty
sure the first time I sent him pictures of it in pieces he
would have reminded me of that little 935. So, when
your son or daughter (or grandkids) wind up with extra
pieces of something you just gave them, resist the urge
to be disappointed and take a picture instead. One day
you just might be able to show them just how far they’ve
come. Enjoy the drive!
