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!

MAVS OF THE MONTH:

Mike and Ian O’Hare

Mike O’Hare joined our Maverick Region in

October 2016 shortly after getting his 2014 Cayman S.

He quickly

became

a regular

attendee at

a number of

our many

events, and

then took

the next step

by becoming

an active volunteer, helping with parking and other

tasks to support our members. His son Ian is also

becoming actively involved in volunteering for our

club. Since Ian got his driver’s license, he not only has

taken a few turns on the street in the Cayman S, but

also had the chance to drive it on the track at COTA

in March. The two of them are diehard racing fans,

particularly Indy cars, and they have attended many

major racing events.

Social Chair Debi Kruder adds, “I can’t thank this

father/son team enough for their warm welcome to

our fellow Mavs at our recent All Member Brunch!

Mike assisted outside with parking, while Ian warmly

greeted and checked members in. It’s just another

example of how we can not only drive friendships

but family too.”

2019 All Member Party: Member Voices

Debi Kruder, Region Social Chair

photos provided by Michael Durovick

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

Member Morning!

Clockwise from upper left: A trio of club favorites: Roberto’s 356, Mike’s Aubergine

911 and the Kruder’s 356. Road Runner member Chuck Bush, Jim Hirsch

and David Roberston with former PCA President Caren Cooper. The big white barn

with some eye candy and some libations from the champagne bar.

All Member Party: A Record-Breaking Event!

Linda Bambina

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

great time.

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

– CONGRATULATIONS!!!

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.

Catch up.

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.

Mavs & Mochas: Mainstreet Bistro & Bakery

by Bill Kruder

photos provided by Michael Durovick, Mike Mahoney & Julia Cleath

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

7:30 am.

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.

You won’t want to miss next month’s gathering! Not only is it going

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

50 years of the 914. See you on April 13, rain or shine. It’s sure to be a

good time!

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.

Contact Mark Schnoerr for

details, or go to autocross.com

and sign up for one of the nine

remaining events this season. The

full calendar is posted to the left.

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 welliott911@gmail.com. The second is

to volunteer as the H PDE Equipment Manager.

This role involves setting up safety equipment before the

HPDE and gathering everything back up at the end of

the DE on Sunday. The equipment is currently stored at

MotorSport Ranch. A pickup or SUV would probably be

handy for this position. This is a staff position that will

allow you to drive at the event for no registration fee.

If you are interested in this role, please contact Renee

Hayden at de@mavpca.org.

See you in the corners soon!

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.

’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.

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

with PCA.

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

Dallas?

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

20 April


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

getting paid.

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

RSR?

BH: We raced

the RSRs from

about ‘73-‘77. I

had some pretty

good drivers

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/

Tours.asp .

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

best options.

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

30 April

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

around you.

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.

If you have any SP997 questions,

please feel free to contact me at:

dmhodges911@gmail.com.

I can provide contact information on

any of the people involved with the

current SP997 build. I am also the

SP997 class advocate.

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?

Me apparently.

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.
