SPROCKETS: Zone 5 Presidents Meeting
by David Robertson, Region President
Recently, I attended the Zone 5 Presidents meeting.
This meeting is held once a year to bring together the
presidents of each region within Zone 5 to cover PCA
Policy and share ideas between the regions on where
they are finding success within the club.
The Zone Rep and one or two national board
members also attend to bring us up to speed on what is
happing at the national level. There are 14 PCA Zones
in the US and Canada, and there are 12 regions in Zone
5, with Maverick Region being the largest. There is a
Zone website which you may not be aware of that links
all of the Zone 5 regions: Zone5.pca.org.
One of the big topics of discussion was 4-door
Porsches and how to encourage those owners to
participate in driving events.
A poll was recently conducted in the
Northeast, in which 4-door owners were
asked what type of driving event they would
like to attend. A casual and light off-road
driving tour was by far the biggest wish.
And as luck would have it, our trek to dinner after
the meeting actually turned in to one of these off-road
tours. Since we were in NW Arkansas, there wasn’t a
direct route to many places. As we headed out to dinner
that night, about a 30-minute drive, the news came
through that a tree was down on the main road. As it
turned out there was a fairly rough dirt road through
the hills and along Beaver Lake that would get us there.
We parked the 911s and Caymans and all piled into
Macans, Cayennes, and a Panamera. It was a blast!
Another big topic was that of making sure that
younger enthusiasts are joining the club and remaining
active. The PCA Juniors program has been successful
and there are plans to expand it further. One innovative
idea has been PCA Simulated racing. These virtual races
have been very well received, and you can find all the
details at pcasimracing.org.
We want to make sure that the Mavericks are set up
for whatever the future brings us!

becoming actively involved in volunteering for our

particularly Indy cars, and they have attended many
major racing events.
Social Chair Debi Kruder adds, “I can’t thank this

Mike assisted outside with parking, while Ian warmly

Over 350 Mavericks registered
for what turned out to be one of
the largest events to date: our first
“Alle Mitglieder,” an All Member
Morning! The Barn at One Preston
Event Center in Gunter was filled
with laughter, conversation, great
food, and bubblies, as the driving
tour groups began pulling in one
by one. New members were treated
extra special with their customized
New Member tag on a Porsche
lanyard and their own Maverick
bag filled with a Porsche flag, pen,
and mouse pad given by Autobahn;
a Maverick logo microfiber towel
and car cleaning product provided
by Griot’s Garage and OCD’tailers;
as well as lots of fun extras inside
given by Haggerty!
When entering the barn, the
Chicken and Biscuit bar with
yummy fresh jams, fruit, and
cheese greeted our Mavs and
was the favorite of the morning,
compliments of Phoenix Insurance
(will be sure to order more next
year!). The food choices continued
with the Southern Breakfast Bar
of warm scrambled eggs, sausage,
bacon, and more, all catered by
the most hospitable team at Low
Country Cuisine. They kept our
glasses full too, with delicious
juices and fruit to add to our
champagne at the Mimosa Bar.
Many thanks to APEX Automotive
for the Bloody Marys, which again
were a Mav favorite!
The Barn was abuzz, with over
320 Mavs attending the brunch,
including two very special guests:
Caren Cooper, PCA National Past
President, and Charles (Chuck)
Bush, our Zone 5 Representative.
They joined Region President David
Robertson as he welcomed our new
members, existing members, and
proudly talked about all the club
had to offer. Then, to great surprise,
Caren Cooper announced that the
Maverick Region was receiving the
Actual Growth Membership Award
for 2018, beating the multi-year
recipients in Canada!
Needless to say, the enthusiasm in
the Barn, great food and friendships,
not to mention the largest gathering
of Porsches in recent club history,
made it a magical morning. Many
thanks to our sponsor, Autobahn
Porsche, for this most successful All

All Member Party: A Record-Breaking Event!
photo provided by Jason Olson
Over 350 Mavericks drove at least 40 miles to get to an
amazing venue in Gunter: One Preston Event Venues. That
broke all records for a Social Event; thank you, Debi! But then
that’s just one more thing that is great about this club . . . we all
LOVE to drive! Unless your GPS isn’t updated and can’t find
the place! (But that’s another story!)
Alan and I have been coming to these “Member” gatherings
since the late 80s when the Board (maybe 10 people) just focused
on inviting New Members (maybe 20 people) and served them
chili at each other’s homes! The idea was to encourage the new
folks to try out some of our other competitive events, and to
meet the wives and encourage them to drive, too! I still try to
do that at the Extravaganzas that have been happening the past
decade or so.
I love coming to these All Member Parties. I get to see so
many of my old friends, look at the old scrapbooks (thank you
Carey for taking care of them!) and then schmooze with all
kinds of newbies about my crazy “vest” with the fancy sequined
Porsche crest that I made for a Parade in ’93. OH! Parade! Ya
gotta come to Parade, folks! (But that’s another other story!)
Maverick Region All Member Party
by Caren Cooper, PCA National Past President
I had the opportunity to attend the Maverick Region
All Member Party at the Carriage House in Gunter.
Although there were cloudy and foggy conditions the
day before, the skies cleared for the event and the sun
highlighted the magnificent display of Porsches – it
was such a beautiful sight driving up and seeing the
sea of Porsches. Not only was every model of Porsche
represented, but every generation of Porsche enthusiast
was in attendance. The attendance numbers were
impressive with a packed house. This extremely wellrun
event was a perfect example of an approach for
engaging new members, with veteran members making
sure the new members were welcomed and having a
It was truly special to take in this event, but I also had
another motive for being there. Each year at the PCA
national convention, Parade, there are seven National
Award winners announced. It was confirmed the week
before this event that the Maverick Region will be this
year’s recipient of the National Membership Award!
Out of 145 PCA Regions across North
America, and with stiff competition from
both coasts, the Maverick Region is the
strongest growing region in North America
FYI – during the week of Parade, the National
Membership Award will be presented on Saturday
evening during the Victory Banquet. All Maverick
Region members in attendance will be asked to come
to the awards stage to accept the trophy and pose for
a photo that will appear in PCA’s Panorama magazine.
Registration for Parade is open now at porscheparade.
org – I hope you can join us!
Maverick Region All Member Party: Junior Edition
by Brady Stogner, Porsche Junior ESQ
photo provided by Landon Stogner
We started off the Sunday morning pretty early, filled
up our cups with caffeine, and headed off on our own
backroads drive. We arrived at The Carriage House at
One Preston Events Venue in Gunter, TX and started to
prepare. We got all the tables set up and came up with a
plan for the parking, which was cool, as we were going
to park them along the big circle driveway.
We knew so many more would be arriving soon, so
we wanted to fit as many as we could. Then as people
started arriving we got them checked in with our new
mobile app. I helped my Dad, Landon Stogner, at the
new members’ check-in table by handing out goodie
bags and Porsche flags. I was also in charge of the PCA
Juniors’ table, where we had some really cool Hot
Wheels to hand out. Low Country Cuisine cooked up a
yummy breakfast; the biscuits were so amazing that they
ran out quickly. I was so glad that I was able to get one.
There was some coffee and adult drinks
available but I decided to stick just to juice.
We had some members that helped show the new
members around and I said hello to any other “juniors”
that tagged along with their parents and pointed them
to the Hot Wheels. After me and my Dad got a chance
to eat, we had some time to walk around outside and
check out all the Porsches that came, including Ajai’s
bright yellow Carrera GT. Every time I see that car I
want it more and more. That car is just so cool and
beautiful. The party was fun, and we had a lot of new
members, which numbered close to 100, and that’s
really cool because that means we are growing more.
I can’t wait till there is a day I come to one of our club
events in the driver’s seat.
All Member Party Tour Recap
By Mark Pitarresi, Tours Co-Chair
photo provided by Michael Durovick
February here in North Texas is
usually a month during which we don’t
even consider doing a driving tour for
our Maverick Region members. We
mainly avoid this month because the
weather is too unpredictable.
This year we decided to shake things
up and do a Driving Tour to our All
Member Party. The tour was 48.4 miles
and about an hour long just north of
Dallas. Temperatures were in the high
30s, with the streets still damp from
light showers earlier that morning as
people started showing up. Even with
the cooler temperatures, 120 Porsches
and 232 people attended this tour! That
is just two Porsches short of a record
number of cars for our region’s tour
program. We also had 50 new members
that had never attended PCA event before!
The streets had mostly dried by the
time our tour got underway. Attendees
traveled through the towns of Van
Alstyne, Weston, Celina, Pilot Point,
Tioga, and Gunter. Our destination
was waiting with great food, beverages,
and probably the largest gathering of
Porsches that I had ever seen. I was the
last group leader of the tour, and as we
pulled into the parking lot I was blown
away by all the Porsches.
A special thanks to our tours
volunteer team! Driving Tours of this
size could not be managed without them!
The group leaders were Brant Worrell,
Young Slack, Jay Lynch, Tom Gomer,
Mike Farrell, Ed Martelle, Derrick
Tate, Scott Garwood, Ted Martin,
Sam Bryant, and Mark Pitarresi. Signin
attendants were Bill Elliot, Jennifer
Gerbode, Ed Martelle, Mike Farrell,
Scott Garwood, Brant Worrel, Sam
Bryant, and myself.
I am also excited to share some news
with everyone about 2019. Sam Bryant
is our new Co-Chair for the Tours
program. He is very excited about it, and
we welcome him to lead the program!
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.

They say something in Texas like “if you don’t like the weather wait
five minutes and it will change.” Well change it did, and just in time!
Many Mavs woke up to a thunderstorm cutting its way across DFW
at about 4:30 am, and depending where you were, lasted until about
You think that would stop this hardy group? No way! As the clouds
began to clear away, Bill Orr, with his Park Place Mavs & Mocha
support vehicle, was there ensuring we were ready to meet the few
that might venture out. And venture out they did! Over 60 Porsches
attended, some a little worse for wear with rain soaked streets, but
as they say, “our cars don’t melt in the rain.” As the cars arrived, the
coffee was ready and breakfast was being served inside at Mainstreet
Bistro & Bakery in Richardson.
And as it always seems every month, we see new and interesting
people and their prized Porsches. We had our “Skittles” of GT3s,
including Ajai Cadambi’s Lizard Green GT3RS. Glenn brought out his
1961 356B cab. We brought our new ‘96 993 known as the “Hoffman,”
not to mention the 944s and 968s attending.

to be at the legendary Zims Autotechnik, but we will also be celebrating

2019 Autocross Series: Championship Event 1
by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
photos by Robert Kirby of Lightspeed Images
Event 1 was held at one of the
sites east of the Metroplex, Mesquite
Memorial Stadium in Mesquite, TX.
It was a cold and windy day but 90
drivers attended, nine in Porsches. The
conflict with the DE and some others
travels left many of the usual attendees
out of town for this one. New Porsche
attendees Dawn Marie Gray and
Charlie Fick brought a Porsche Cayman
GT4 and GT3 RS, respectively, to this
one. Charlie did the first quick Porsche
time today. Clay and Betty Perrine
brought Betty’s beautiful orange 914
out, and Betty showed Clay how it’s
done. We hope these guys all make it
back to the next event, a MirrorCross
at Mineral Wells. Mas Watanabe and
Carolle Lui are going to make a fight of
it in P3 this year.
There is an autocross
car control clinic at
Mineral Wells Airport,
scheduled for Saturday,
May 4. In case you were
wondering, drivers age
16 and 17 can enter,
as long as they have a
valid driver license (not
a learner’s permit) and
a consent waiver signed
by a parent.
As a note, the Event 4 has been
moved from April 21 to May 5.
The new Porsche Classes this
year makes the FOUR DOOR cars
very competitive for performance
index-adjusted first quick Porsche.
Igor Tulandin, autocrossing since
last season, has been tuning his
Cayenne GTS while refining his
car control skills and is the first
four door to win First Quick Index
Porsche ever at one of our events!
Congratulations Igor! We all have
to go after him the rest of the year.
Second and third quick Index were
Betty in her 914 and Doug Edney
in his 996.

remaining events this season. The

Maverick Drivers’ Education Series: February 2019
by Renee Hayden, DE Chair
We had record participation and a wildly successful
High Performance Drivers Education (HPDE) event at
MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, TX on February 23-24.
Thanks to all who participated in the event, to those who
participated in the charity parade laps benefitting Patriot
PAWS, and a special thanks to Autobahn Porsche as our
sponsor for the first DE of 2019. What a great weekend!
The HPDE program succeeds because of the
participants who come out to drive their cars the way they
were meant to be driven, in a safe and fun environment,
and because of the volunteers who give generously of
their time and talent. We hope you will come join the fun
at our next HPDE on April 27-28. Registration opens on
March 27 and the events fill up quickly, so register early!
For April, we will be welcoming RAC Performance as
our event sponsor.
By the way, we have two volunteer opportunities
available, which will allow you free HPDE participation.
The first is our “work and drive” program, which
involves working as a corner safety worker for a weekend
(with training) and then driving for no registration fee
in a future event. If this interests you, please contact
Wayne Elliot at email@example.com. The second is

Maverick Marktpreis: 928
by Peter Wen
“WANTED: Porsche 928, for attempted murder of 911.”
What a headline that would have been? Of course that’s
not exactly how it happened. Back in the ‘70s, Porsche
was headed in a different direction. They needed a modern
car to replace the aging 911 and to keep up with emission
regulations. They wanted a new flagship vehicle with the best
possible combination of a sports coupé and a luxury sedan.
The result was the 928, a grand tourer with a water-cooled
V8 engine. Porsche’s first production V8-powered model and
the only coupé powered by a front-mounted V8 engine.
The 928 was loaded with technological advances
and luxurious features. It won the coveted 1978
European Car of the Year award upon introduction. It
was priced far above the 911 SC ($110k vs $75k in
today’s dollars). Just 57,998 928s were built during
the model’s 19-year production run (25k of which
came to the US). Excellence magazine considered the
928 S4 to be “Best Value.” Only about 3,000 of the
928 GTS were produced, with just 482 examples
coming to the U.S.
Hagerty Valuation Tool:
1987 928 S4
$31,000 average value
May 2016 Jan 2017 Sep 2017 May 2018 Sep 2018
Excellence’s magazine’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide offered these
price ranges for the 928:
’87-’89 S4 $12k-$22k
’78-’82 $8k-$13k ’90-’92 S4 $14k-$24k
’83-’84 S $9k-$15k ’90-’92 GT $16k-$26k
’85-’86 S $10k-$18k ’93-’95 GTS $40k-$70k
The 928 was prominently featured in the movie Risky Business.
Tom Cruise learned how to drive a manual transmission in a
928 during filming. Five cars were used, including a shell car
without engine and transmission for the lake plunge scene.
PCNA was not officially involved with the film: “No way, we
don't want anything to do with a movie about a prostitute."

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by Author
Sadly we lost our friend Bob this past
month. My first “conversation” was
with Bob back in September 2016. I had
never met him, but when I decided to
start the monthly piece I looked in our
records for the oldest member and Bob
popped up. Bob joined PCA in 1960;
he was the longest living member with
uninterrupted membership. Needless to
say I had no idea who this man was. I
called him and suggested we meet for
coffee. Well, gentleman that he was, he
said “of course” but the humble man
warned me: he didn’t understand why I
would want to meet him. Let’s just say
it was a friendship that was meant to be.
Fair to say it was one that I wished
would have lasted a lot longer. Since
our meeting on that hot July day
we would meet for coffee every
few months and that bond kept
growing. Matter of fact we were
lucky enough to purchase his last
personal Porsche, the 1964 356C.
Then the next year we decided to
purchase a 914. One day with the
help of Robert Kendrick, we found
a 1971 on EBay, and after sorting
thru all the pics, Robert said you
would not believe this. The 914
was from Hagestad Porsche Audi in
Denver, and with that alone I said
that car is mine; we bid that day and
won. So as fate would have it, we
now have two Hagestad Porsches.
So here it is what in was the first of a
series of “interviews” that I would like
to share with you . . .
Bob Hagestad, owner 1964 356C,
member since 1960
Bill Kruder: Bob, you have been a
member of PCA longer than almost
anyone in Maverick Region. What year
did you join PCA and why?
Bob Hagestad: Well, really I kind of
joined by accident. My dad had a VW
dealership in Cheyenne, Wyoming and
he wanted to open another. However,
VW said that they would let him have
another but it had to be in Denver. Then
as an extra incentive they said, “We will
give you a Porsche dealership also.”
Needless to say, we moved. Once we
opened our mechanic said, “We need
to race one of these.” And we did! We
took one off the showroom floor and
took the SCCA driving school, which
I guess at the same time signed us up
BK: So this was 1960 then?
BH: Yes, think in the fall. Funny thing
was once we had taken the car off the
showroom floor we simply returned it
when we were finished, like nothing
had happened. Not sure I could get
away with that today.
Bob Hagestad and the number 95 934
BK: Wow! And to think PCA was only
around for five years at that point, and
Maverick Region wouldn’t even be
founded until 1962.
BH: Well like I said, we joined because
we had just acquired the dealership and
thought it might be fun to do a little
racing. Of course I had no idea back then
I would have moved here years later.
BK: So you come from a car-guy family then?
BH: I do. I didn’t mention that before my
dad started selling VWs, he had a Lincoln-
Mercury dealership. I actually worked
as a salesman for him. I think that was
1957, but I was terrible. Think he told me
I needed to find another profession.
BK: Well how did that work out for you?
Right: The Hagested Volkswagen dealership.
BH: Funny how things work out, but
about 1968-69, VW and Porsche
came back and said “We want you to
separate VW from Porsche.” And to
do that they would add in Audi so we
could have a Porsche+Audi store.
Apparently my dad hadn’t given
up on me yet, so he worked out a
deal in which he would sell VWs
if I would take the other “slower
selling” cars. So that’s what we did.
We opened up a new dealership.
BK: So how did you end up in
BH: About 1987, VW asked if I
would help establish a dealership
here. I didn’t want to move, so for
about three to four years I would
go back and forth. Then about
1991-92, I took over Metro VW in
Irving and was an active partner ‘til I
retired in 2011.
BK: Now tell me what was your first Porsche?
BH: Really don’t have just one “first”
because we would drive which ever we felt
like off the showroom floor; kind of brings
a smile to my face to think about that.
BK: What do you own now?
BH: I have a 1964 Dolphin Gray 356C.
BK: Is this one off the showroom floor?
BH: Oh no, I bought this one in 1984
from a couple in Denver who had gone to
Europe, bought the car in Paris, and drove
it on vacation over there. They then brought it back and enjoyed
it for another 19 years. They put 80,000 miles on it.
BK: How many miles does it have on it now?
BH: I’ve only put another 9000 miles on it since 1984.
BK: What an incredible journey you have been on, with some
of the best cars in the world.
BH: Not bad I guess. But you don’t want to hear about my racing?
BK: So you continued to race? Not just club races?
BH: Oh, that was only the beginning. We bought the 904; I
think only two were here in the States. We raced it in ‘64 at
the 250-mile Daytona Continental, in which we finished fifth.
This was really the start of my professional racing, actually
BK: And there’s the 935 too?
BH: Well it was really a 934 that was converted to a 935,
which they referred to as a 934.5 in those years. That was in
‘78 when we started at the 24 Hours of Daytona but DNFd.
But then we came back at Sebring and led the race until we
lost our brakes, but managed to come in second.
Wow, and to think that I was only coming over to talk about
some guy’s “tub” car!
BK: We’ve talked about an RSR – how did that come about?
BH: In 71 several of us went to Monte Carlo and stopped at
the Porsche factory to look at a new car they were trying to
sell; they had to sell fifty before they could race them. As it
turned out it was the ‘72 RSR. I think I managed to get them
to sell it to me for about $18k.
BK: And how did that work out?
BH: I brought it home and wrecked it in a practice run. So
Peter Gregg had another car as a spare but it was painted in
his livery so he sold it to me.
Above: Bob Hagestad attending the Porsche Grapevine opening along
with David Robertson and Bill Kruder.
Below: Bob and his 1964 Porsche 356.
BK: Peter Gregg like in Brumos?
BH: That would be the guy alright. Trouble was, we couldn’t
race in his livery, so we bought what is like floral kitchen contact
paper and covered up his scheme. That was at Elkhart Lake.
BK: How long
did you race the
BH: We raced
the RSRs from
about ‘73-‘77. I
had some pretty
driving for me
and with me.
BK: Anyone we would know?
BH: Let’s see: Skip Barber, Jerry Jolly, John Paul, and Hurley
Haywood. I might be forgetting someone, but these guys were good.
BK: Something tells me there is more . . .
BH: Yep! Then about ‘76-‘77 (I can’t remember for sure), we
bought our 934 turbo. Think we paid about $50k back then
for it, which was a lot, trust me. Hurley Haywood drove for
me in all the one-hour races and I co-drove with him in the
endurance races; we had some pretty good success in it.

Maverick Tour: Stop! Smell the Bluebonnets!
By Mark Pitarresi, Tours Co-Chair
Welcome to the second Maverick Tour for 2019! This
year’s Bluebonnet Tour will be just southeast of Dallas.
Ennis is the official Bluebonnet City of Texas. Typically
the bluebonnets peak around the third week of April.
However, this can vary year to year due to weather
conditions and terrain.
This year we have chosen Sunday, April 7 for this year’s
tour. This time our Maverick Region will witness a sneak
preview a week before the city of Ennis puts on their
annual Bluebonnet Festival. That’s right -- this attraction
is so popular that the city of Ennis actually celebrates it
with an annual festival! It has been said that they have over
100,000 visitors that come to see their famous Bluebonnet
trails in the spring for the wildflower show. The Ennis
Bluebonnet trails are the oldest such trails known in the
state. Country scenery, twisty roads, elevation change,
long straights, and bluebonnets will be expected! The tour
is approximately 1 hour 37 minutes and 68.8 miles long.
We do have a rest stop on this tour. At the time this article
was written there was no construction on this route.
The tour starts at 10 am at Red Oak Middle School,
located at 154 Louise Ritter Blvd. in Red Oak, TX 75154.
The tour will end at Bubba’s BBQ and Steak House, 210
S. I-45, Ennis, TX 75119. Bubba’s BBQ is famous for
great food. They can accommodate about 110 people.
Our tours are generally larger than that, but there are
several other places to eat in the area.
The Drivers’ Briefing will start at 10 am. Most of
our tour members arrive early to socialize and take in
the variety of Porsches. Arriving early also helps our
volunteers in sign you in on time so the tour is on schedule.
You can register for this tour at http://mav.pca.org/Events/
You will have two classes to choose from. Select
Vintage If your car is older or if you prefer a more relaxed
tour. Select Modern class if you prefer the same tours we
have been providing in the past. It is your choice, no
matter the Porsche you drive, as to what class you select.
After you register we will send you an email three days
before the day of the tour with all the information needed
to attend. We break up the driving tours into smaller
groups and have a group leader that will guide you on the
route. Typically no navigation is needed to attend -- just
follow the car in front of you.

SP997: These Guys Love to Race
by David Hodges
photos provided by Juha Llevonen
For me there is nothing like a
race weekend. Nothing! The wave
of the green flag just gets everything
flowing. Hustling the car into Turn 1
never gets old, so very much alive, so
very aware of every movement, every
sound, tuned to the moment. We
race... Man, do I love race starts.
There is also that huge grin while
returning to the paddock — win or
train is stock with extra cooling for
the motor and PDK. Shocks are MCS
with upgraded springs, drop links,
swap bars, control arms, etc. We
set the spec tire as Hoosier R7’s and
when PCA negotiated their recent
contingency deal with Hoosier Tire,
they included SP997. This means
that we are now are eligible to win
Hoosier tires for points race podiums
Following the weeks of winter testing,
we moved on to PCAs first 2018 Club
Race at Sebring for our first showdown.
Thomas (TJ) Kroehle got the first
class win at Sebring and repeated
with wins at COTA. Not bad for a
Rookie X man.
Barber will be the next event where
we will have all six cars racing for the
first time. This year we are also planning
lose. Taking a moment or two to
reflect about how to improve for the
next race, then out of the car to relive
the race with your buddies: You
did what? Wow... Nice move!
Two years ago a few 911 RSA H
class and SP996 racers (who had met
at Texas World Speedway in their
PCA DE days) began thinking of their
next platform for PCA Club Racing.
We started with the concept of a 911
body, stock drive train and relatively
low cost to operate compared to
a Cup car. A review of 911 build
options pointed to the 2009-2012
997.2 S. It looked to have it all. A
safe, fast, good looking steel bodied
911, and a PDK with the bullet proof
DFI (9A1) motor. It topped the list of
SP997 began as a 2009-2012
997.2. We selected the 2009 S PDK
due to it being the most common
build and near the lower end of the
997.2 depreciation curve. The body is
stock other than the rear wing, with
interior stripped and caged, the drive
finishes. Thank you Hoosier and
PCA... Well done!
In late 2016 three cars were built by
CJ Wilson Racing, for Paul Norwood,
Clas Olsson, and Keith Jezek. They
raced in K while learning about the
cars and we developed the SP997
rules from the year of test and tuning.
Andris Laivins is the team manager at
CJ Wilson Racing, his team put a lot
of hard work into developing the cars.
Late last year CJ Wilson Racing
built two more cars, for Chuck Bray
and myself. John Gladwill at Porsche
of Plano was instrumental in the
design of the Kent Porter SP997 build
delivered to TJ Kroehle.
We spent several weeks during the
winter break testing cars at Motor¬sport
Ranch in Cresson, Texas. John Gladwill
was a great asset due to his years of
experience in race car set up. He tuned
the suspension settings with Topp
Racing providing track support and
ECU flashing. Lap after lap we learned
more about how to get the cars quicker
through the low grip MSR turns.
to race VIR, Watkins Glenn, Road
America, Laguna Seca and Daytona.
Between Club Race events we plan to
continue to develop the cars at COTA and
MSR Cresson. We’ll be experimenting
with different aero settings, tire sizes,
spring rates, and possibly adding a
limited slip differential.
It has been extremely interesting
working with this group of guys to
develop the SP997 class. It is a great
way to push yourself to a new level,
to learn new skills and to get to
know about more yourself and those
Drop by at the next PCA Club
Race to say hello and maybe
get a signed photo with your
favorite SP997 racer or have a cold
beer with us.

It’s Our Business to Do Pleasure. TM
Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
This marks my 13th issue of Slipstream and it’s time
we had a talk. I’ve been holding
out on you. You might have always
suspected it, but I haven’t always been
completely honest. The past 8 months
I’ve been leading a double life. I know,
I know it’s time I come clean. As you
might know by now, I am a classic
air-cooled lover since childhood, but
I’ve had a relationship with another. A
water-cooled Porsche. With the engine
in the front. And the transmission
in the back. It was a little weird
at first, but it got easier. I know it
might come as a surprise, but I’m not
ashamed at all. In fact, I kind of find
it exhilarating. Everything is all new.
The world seems more colorful, even
the birds sing more sweetly. It might
just be that I can hear them over the exhaust now, but
let’s not kill the illusion. It’s amazing what a subtle shift in
perspective can do. Things that once seemed impossible,
are now a reality, like folding down the rear seats on a run
to Home Depot or valet parking without an explantation.
I’m kidding, I don’t valet park. But as
I’ve mentioned I do stupid things on
occasion. And this car doesn’t punish
me when I do something really stupid
like, gasp, trail braking. I know, who
would do such a thing in a Porsche?
So, to the left I present the 1986
944 Turbo that I am the current
proud caretaker of. This car has been
pampered, never driven in the rain and
only used on Sundays. Actually, any
of you that know this car know better
than that. It’s been driven as intended
it’s whole life, now is no exception.
Driven in anger and for pleasure. It’s
the realization of the other boy-hood
dream. The water-cooled one. And it’s
so much more than I ever thought it could be.
As a side note, it’s my son’s favorite and I guess I’m
okay with that. As long as a Porsche is in his top three
we’re doing just fine. Enjoy the drive! I know I do.
