iven the current CDC guidelines as a result of the COVID-19 virus, the Board (meeting by teleconference) has decided to cancel or postpone all events through April 30th. The Board will continue to evaluate the situation regarding future event plans. Porsche Chandler has decided to not hold any events larger than 10-15 people for the time being and has thus cancelled our monthly meeting in April. We will reschedule with them when possible later in the year. There was some discussion about possibly holding driving events (autocross, DE and tours) where contact could be minimized, but in the interest of safety for our membership and because many of our members are in the high risk group, we have decided to cancel those through April 30th. The Board will continue to meet by teleconference, for now, to continuously assess the situation and CDC and state guidelines so keep tuned to our website for updates. The goal of all these efforts is not to stop the virus, which is impossible, but to slow its spread and minimize infection of the most vulnerable so that health care can keep up with the needs. The club has purchased a license for GoToMeeting that will let us hold teleconferences up to 150 people. We are thinking of trying to hold the May membership meeting as a teleconference, so please keep an eye out for an announcement about this. Please keep yourself safe and follow legitimate source advice. Frequent hand washing or sanitizing and not touching your face are your first line of defense. After that, minimizing your interaction with others, keeping a safe distance (6 ft.) is good advice. We hope for the best for all our members and look forward to this crisis passing. ‘Nuff said. Drive safely!

ell so much for having baseball being played at Chase Field this spring. I did get to attend one spring training game before they were cancelled for the season. We will just have to wait and see how COVID-19 is going to impact the baseball schedule. If it is any consolation, Fox Sports AZ is playing reruns of last year’s games. Our Board of Directors have implemented the COVID-19 CDC guidelines by cancelling or postponing all events in March/April. They will revisit future events at the next board meeting on April 20th. Please check our web site for updates. This month the award winner for the Writer’s Monthly Award for Going Places is Matt Klucha for “Ah, Sedona, as has always been … A Healthy Breath of Fresh Air.” He will receive a $30. credit on Motorsportreg, which is good for one year to use on any AZPCA activity. Hope to see you at an upcoming event once it is safe to all get together!

AZPCA A-X #6, February 29, 2020

ey Autocrossers,

Here are the results from the AZPCA Autocross last Saturday (February 29). The chart below is all of the raw times with the number of cones listed. There was a 5 second penalty for each cone. The chart on the right is the Top Time Of Day, everyones best run sorted from the fastest to the slowest.Congratulations to Steve E for setting the Top Time Of Day! Weather conditions were perfect! It was a tough decision to postpone from the originally scheduled date but with all the rain on the 22nd, we definitely made the right choice! Thanks to Ken O. and Bill P. for helping Kim and me set up the course on Friday.   We had a good attendance with 32 drivers, especially considering those that had to cancel due to scheduling conflicts with the date change. As usual, a nice lunch was provided by Pat the Hot Dog Lady. Thanks to everyone who helped set up in the morning and then tear down and put away all of the equipment at the end of the day. We really appreciate all of you who help make these events successful! We hope to see you again in May. Kim and Rick

Come join your PCA friends on one of the great drives in Arizona — The route from Congress up Yarnell Hill, through People’s Valley to Prescott via White Spar Road — known simply as “The Spars” to locals — is one of the very best drives in our beautiful state. On our arrival in downtown Prescott we will meet for lunch at The Palace Restaurant and Saloon. Originally opened in 1877, The Palace is the oldest frontier saloon in Arizona. After lunch you may want to stroll around the Courthouse Square, or visit one of the many historic sites and museums in the Prescott area. Register early, as this drive is likely to sell out.

Time to Inspire the Next Generation by Peter Vermilyea, Arizona Mountain Region photos by Peter Vermilyea

R

ecently, the AZPCA region was sponsoring a Driver Education event at Arizona Motorsports Park (AMP) in Litchfield Park, Arizona. I had participated in a DE event before, and found it to be a fun and educational experience. Since my 18 year old son, Ian has loved Porsches for many years, I thought it would be a good time for me to sign him up for a day with an instructor at the track. When Ian was 16, he purchased a 1985 944, but since his car has 200,000 miles on the clock, we decided it would be safer for him to use my 2006 Boxster instead. Although Ian is a careful driver, he was a little apprehensive at first about the prospect of driving on a track at high speeds, but I assured him he would always have an instructor in the car with him, and this was a good way to safely enjoy the full performance of the car. To be honest, I was slightly nervous about letting my son take the car out on the track. But I knew it was a controlled environment with professional coaching. When I was in my 20s, my father had taken me to a BMW driving event in 1995, and it is something I still look back fondly on as quality time with my Dad. So I viewed this DE event as an opportunity for a dad and his son to share in a bonding experience together, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Creating family memories with our Porsches is something I’ve worked hard to build into our lives. Cars can be so much more special when they are used to do memorable things with them! From the YouTube video I made documenting my son’s 944 purchase, to a Tik-Tok video I made of a cross-country trip my 15 year old and I made together last November in a 1995 Carrera 4. I’ve been able to connect with each of my boys individually. Since we live about 150 miles away from the track, we had to get up at 4 a.m. to make it in time for check in, safety check, and sound check. On the ride down, I assured my son it would be worth the early morning wake up! With the car loaded up with snacks, coffee, lawn chairs, and camera gear, we headed down I-17 as dawn broke.

| 18 |


The morning started with a general group meeting covering the day’s agenda, as well as some safety information, and matching drivers up with their instructors. Next came an outdoor classroom session under a tent with detailed instruction on track rules, safety, and principles of track driving. All of the drivers with little to no experience were placed in the same session, so no one would feel out of place. Fortunately, there was room for me to observe from the back of the classroom and I was able to get a little review as well. The temperatures warmed up along with the engines, and soon the cars lined up to get out on the track. That’s when the action began for me as well. As an amateur photographer, I was happy to take out my SLR and tripod and start snapping photos of my son as he whizzed by, and I was able to text a few videos as well to my wife at home so she could watch from afar. After his first 20 minute session, my son came out of the car beaming, telling me all about the thrill and exhilaration of the first laps, and the pointers he received. Then it was break time for 15 minutes, followed by a second classroom session. This was repeated several times throughout the day. It was a pleasure to see him gaining confidence with each session, and hearing him tell me all about it. In total, he put nearly 70 miles of laps through the twists and turns at Arizona Motorsports Park, learned a lot of new skills, and had a blast. Sure, he wore out my brakes and tires a little bit, but more importantly, he and I shared in an experience that all PCA members should all take advantage of, and we made memories that will last a lifetime.

Did You Know... by Bob Tomlin photo by Pete Lyons

By now most of our club members will have seen the recent excellent movie Ford v Ferrari? There has been some questioning of the type casting of the two main actors. In the case of Ken Miles, I agree there was a true likeness.

Christian Bale as Ken Miles in Ford v Ferrari

I met Ken Miles while officiating at Laguna Seca shortly before his tragic accident. That weekend he was driving a Porsche.

This photo of Ken Miles and me was taken on the weekend of August 5, 1966, just two weeks before the tragic crash that took his life and two months after the June 1966 Le Mans event. Ken Miles at 1966 Laguna Seca SCCA USRRC (United States Road Racing Championship) fore runner to Can Am Series. Ken was 5th overall, first under 2 liter in Otto Zipper’s Porsche 906.

Ah, Sedona, as has always been … A Healthy Breath of Fresh Air by Matt Klucha

‘Give me golf clubs, fresh air and a beautiful partner, and you can keep the clubs...” -Jack Benny

“I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.” -Evel Knievel

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will involve the patient in the proper use of food, fresh air and exercise.” -Thomas A. Edison

“I know that you don’t believe it, but indeed, life will bring you through. You will live it down in time. What you need now is fresh air, fresh air, fresh air!” -Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Things that are good are good, and if one is responding to that goodness one is in contact with a truth from which one is getting something. The truth is doing us good. The truth of the sunshine, the truth of the rain, the truth of the fresh air, the truth of the wind in the trees, these are truths. And they are always accessible!” -Thomas Merton

“Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.” -Erich Fromm

“The symptoms or the sufferings generally considered to be inevitable and incident to the disease are very often not symptoms of the disease at all, but of something quite different-of the want of fresh air, or of light, or of warmth, or of quiet, or of cleanliness, or of punctuality and care in the administration of diet, of each or of all of these.” -Florence Nightingale

A

s always, Sedona is a breath of fresh air.

For thousands of years people have navigated to the area. The first documented human presence in the region dates to between 11,500 and 9000 B.C. These settlers sought to experience the ecological diversity and large amount of natural resources. Around 650 A.D, Sinagua settlers created pottery, basketry and masonry, leaving rock art, petroglyphs ruins and cliff dwellings. One example being Montezuma Castle, now a National Monument. The Sinagua settlers abandoned the area in approximately 1400 A.D. The Yavapai came from the west in the 1300’s. They were nomadic hunter-gatherers. The Apache arrived in the Verde Valley around 1450 A.D. The Yavapai–Apache Nation is a now a federally recognized Native American tribe in the Verde Valley. Sedona began its early years as a farming community of people. The first Anglo settlers arrived in Oak Creek Canyon in 1876. These early settlers were farmers and ranchers, well known for their peach and apple orchards. Two of the most well know rock formations in Sedona are Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte; both astounding symbols of the essence of Sedona – nature and beauty projected skyward from the land on grand display for all who drive, hike, or cycle, or fly above the area. As modern Porsche drivers and travelers to the Sedona region, we seek not to hunt big game, nor to establish cliff dwelling, but we do seek adventure and “ecological diversity.” Perhaps a few of us have shared the experience of picking a fresh peach or apple at its peak of ripeness, akin to the early Anglo-American settlers of Sedona who also relished in such bounties of flavor harvested fresh from their orchards. The early Anglo-American settlers certainly saw some value in establishing orchards back in the 1800’s. As did Thomas Jefferson in his day in creating, evolving, adapting and learning from his lifelong passion: Monticello, located in Charlottesville, VA. Jefferson gathered sows from abroad during his personal and political travels, bringing them back to America, thus adding to the diversity of our shared agricultural base. Monticello… words or photographs cannot do justice to the place, one simply must visit. The legacy of Franklin D. Roosevelt includes establishing the New Deal. The New Deal was a series of programs, public work projects, financial reforms, and regulations enacted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the United States between 1933 and 1939. Also included were broad conservation efforts in the creation and saving of American National Parks. FDR loved the outdoors, and fresh air. His regimen included regular drives in an open air 1939 Lincoln. The “Sunshine Special” was the official state car used by the 32nd President of the United States. It is said to have been the “First Presidential car to acquire its own personality”. It was a 1939 twelve-cylinder engine, four-door convertible originally built by Lincoln and was specially modified for the President by the American coachbuilder, Brunn & Company, Inc., in Buffalo, New York. In sum, all of these great historical people were adventurers and nature “lovers” at heart. Some in the pursuit of basic survival, some in the pursuit of enlightenment and self-actualization, some pursuing public service. FDR left a conservation legacy essential to a healthy 21stcentury environment—one that we continue to build upon today.

Ah, Sedona, as has always been … A Healthy Breath of Fresh Air

continued from 27

Innately, we share similar traits with our ancestors, regardless of geography and origin. What Porsche owner does not love the “primal” orchestra of tones aspiring from a 3.4L flat-six! The sound, a synchronous harmony of mechanical complexity balanced with engineering and manufacturing precision. Some may appreciate the sound of a flat-six on the open road equally to the harmonics produced by a violin virtuoso within an orchestrated theater. The inner working conditions of an engine are harsh enough to be almost incomprehensible, though our experience from the outside, listening from within the cockpit, from close proximity, or from afar is one of beauty! The Porsche 911 is historically the most notable use of flat-six engines which has used flat-six engines continuously since 1963. Over the years, the flat six tones may have changed and muted somewhat: from the air cooled engine to the “insulated” liquid cooled models, and the current turbo models now equipping most new Porsche Boxster engines. The brilliance and awareness within Porsche is to retain a naturally aspirated flat-six in many modern models. A few examples of the modern naturally aspirated flat-six include: the pre-2020 911 GT3, 2020 GT4, and 4.0L models of the 718 Cayman/Boxster. We shall anxiously await what Porsche has planned for GT3 in the coming years. Yes, the ubiquitous flat-six has changed and adapted to modern times, yet the roots are the same and continuous, sharing a clear and consistent design language: like the 911 itself. Technically, the flat-six engine is able to have perfect primary and secondary balance. As per other six-cylinder engines, the overlapping power strokes reduces the pulsating power delivery seen on engines with fewer cylinders. Also, when used in a boxster configuration, a flat-six engine does not have the rocking couple that is present on flat-four engines. These characteristics result in low vibration for flat-six engines, especially when compared with the imbalances that are present in V6 engines with a 90-degree bank angle. Sedona is known the world over for its spectacular red rock scenery. The AZPCA scenic drive to see the beautiful red rocks of Sedona began in Scottsdale at the Coffee Plantation. The group of 60+ enthusiastic PCA members driving a series of well-tuned and maintained Porsches, graced the roads of Arizona. This bunch of fine folks were lucky to get the opportunity to participate, as the event sold out in short order. The Porsche driving collection included a range of classic and modern Porsches.

Early on, some participants showed concern of a potential downfall of rain in the normally dry and sunny desert landscape. The beautiful, but darkly foreboding clouds hovered across the sky. The clouds threatened, yet restrained, aside from the occasional spot of drizzle. The views during the drive were quite spectacular. The large patchy clouds turned friendly and harmless, simply adding diversity to the characteristic clear, azure Arizonan skies, partially hidden above.

Ah, Sedona, as has always been … A Healthy Breath of Fresh Air

continued from 29

Ted and Kathy Vander Hoek (“TK”), winter part-timers in our region from the Seattle area chatted about their 1988 911 Carrera Cabriolet “Non-turbo” wide body, conspicuously absent of the turbo. Based on the well accepted 3.4L flat-six Turbo model, the Turbo aesthetic is retained, though naturally aspirated in this 3.4L flat-six arrangement. According to Ted, only 300 of these “NonTurbo” wide bodies were imported to the USA. A lovely classic 911, breathing freely in Sedona’s clean and fresh environment.

The drive ended in Sedona where patrons gathered at Seven Canyons Sedona to dine amid the golf resort’s spectacular surroundings, best viewed from the patio. The view overlooked the well-kept golf course of Seven Canyons. The patio included a series of outdoor dining and relaxation areas, complete with fire pits.

The view from the patio at Seven Canyons.

Worldly challenges for survival have come and gone continuously along the timeline of humanity. With diligence, purpose and resolve, our ancestors charted the path to excellence regardless. The Porsche auto car is symbolic of survival being race-bred. As Porsche people we are intimately connected in knowing how past challenges were overcome, charting the course for the next run on the racecourse, or more casually in a PCA driving event. We shall learn from the past experiences and willingly pass our knowledge and experience to the next generation. As a final note: My friends, get out there for a bit of fresh air and play your musical instrument called a finely crafted Porsche automobile. FDR might approve.

Social Distancing while driving a Porsche by Rob Turner

B

ack in 1999 I left behind a job to dive headfirst into dotcom. You can probably guess the end of that story. Dotcom turned into dot bomb and I had to pivot jobs very quickly. The job I left had me going into an office every day except for business travel. Dotcom hipness had me working from home, virtually. I was a telecommuting pioneer. To be frank, I do not know what I would do if I had to go back into an office every day. I suspect, I would hate it. My usual work attire is jeans and a long sleeve Porsche t-shirt. The thought of dressing up, even just a little, turns my stomach. Most weeks I have fifteen plus conference calls which are usually routine. However, over the past several weeks as COVID-19 has become a major part of our lives, the company I work for, like many others has mandated that office-bound employees adopt and adapt to WFH a/k/a working from home. Now phone calls include background noises like dogs and kids, and I hear the frustration in the voices of people who have never done this before. But it’s an experience we are all sharing right now. Every week I usually get out of the house by going to the gym early, then at some point maybe running a few errands, but with the CV19 thing, not so much. Like a lot of us I’ve been cooped up in the house for days, now weeks on end and, no surprise, I’ve gotten stir crazy. The weather hasn’t helped. We’ve had more than a week of very steady, sometimes heavy rain. Every day, same forecast: Yep, more rain. Great! But last week I saw a break in the rain. Exactly one day, a Saturday no less. Sunday more rain. But Saturday, chilly and dry. In other words, perfect. My plan was to head out mid-morning and take my usual run up to a secret bridge over the Red River, the wet border between Texas and Oklahoma. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought – hey, I bet other people have been cooped up, dealing with self-isolation, social distancing and might need to stretch their legs so to speak and do some driving. As a group our PCA region is very socially active every weekend, (sometimes two or three activities on the same day), mid-week pop-ups and a variety of other regularly scheduled events. I figured others needed to get out of the house and run for a bit. I posted my idea up on our FB page and was not surprised when many people said, “Hell Yeah.” I said we’d practice social distancing, just wave at each other when we arrived and then would be safely ensconced in our cars for the rest of the trip. Many people said they’d join, but you never really know until you go. I’d posted up the route so everyone going would have an idea of our general direction. I asked that everyone have a full tank of gas and maybe water and snacks. I was so happy to see the rain tail off Friday, heading into Saturday. Perfect, the promise of a dry day. The forecast promised clouds, but lo and behold – the sun! Wow, a sunny day to boot. Even better. I arrived early to find the place I told everyone to meet was blocked due to road construction. What a great start to the drive! Nothing like having to quickly improvise. I asked my wife to post up on FB a nearby location along the highway next to where we were supposed to meet and I added my phone number for people to reach me just in case. There’s always that moment when you’ve put something together and you’re not sure if people will show up or not, so it was a relief to see the first Porsche arrive, then

another and another. My relief tuned to excitement as it appeared there were many people needing to get out of the house. We filled up the side of the road, eleven Porsches strong and one BMW X5M (the owner worried that his older 944 couldn’t keep up). We got out of our cars, greeted each other at a distance, maintaining our social distancing protocol and spread out to take photos of our assembled jelly-bean colored cars as the drivers and passengers of other cars gawked at the row of gleaming Porsches. Our group assembled; it was time to hit it. We managed to keep our social distancing by following each other, no worries there! Everyone keeping pace, our string of cars stretched out over a quarter mile. I had to manage some local traffic but kept us all together. Once we got out in the country, we found little traffic. One kind driver in a pick-up truck even pulled aside so we could all pass. I must admit, there may have been a time or two (but only a time or two ;-) when we cooked it up a bit. Just saying. We pressed deeper into the country, the route I selected providing a good combination of fast sweeping corners, longish straights in between crests with good sight lines for a mile, sometimes more. Here the string of Porsches would stretch out, giving the engines a chance to breathe right up to red line. As we piled on the miles, I could feel it. There is a perceptible change and it sweeps over you. The car helps. Man and machine, the sympathetic beating of human and mechanical hearts. The road makes you focus, pay closer attention to the details. It can transport you if you let it, leaving our trials and concerns behind, if for only a couple of hours. We turned onto a road that leads across the river, the border between two states. There is a sight line of almost two miles down a hill before the bridge. I saw clear road ahead. May have gone just slightly above the speed limit, just a smidge. In the distance I can start to make out a red car shape on the left side of the bridge and I can also see some tiny stick figures near the car. I must admit, I lifted. Then I realized it was Porsche people waiting to cheer us on, so I punched it again, giving them a show. We roared past them in a blurred whoosh of sound, color and speed. A brief stop to meet and greet the Porsche people and then we were back at it, a little more relaxed on the return. Cars peeled off as they needed gas or headed home in other directions. The final two cars, my 981 Cayman S and a 951 drove the last few miles together before we finally parted ways. I don’t know about you, but I needed that. It helped me reconnect to — me. And every once in a while, that blast in the country is just what the doctor ordered. Pulling into the garage, I turned the key and the great beast of an engine stilled. I let out a long slow breath too. I feel good after a drive like that. Just the right amount of edge, adrenaline and seat time. Times like this offer perspective on who we are, on our priorities. But it’s nice to know that we can escape, even if it’s just for a little while, reconnect with others that share a common passion and experience the love of driving our cars. We may be alone in our cars, but in this case, we are together at the same time, practicing a good measure of medically mandated social distancing – at maybe just a few miles over the posted speed limit. And on that exhaust note, see you all next time.

The Cure for Racing Withdrawal by Danielle Badler

Y

ou say you’re pining for the scream of an F 1 engine? You shaking for those in-car views that seem like they’re running at 2x speed, only they’re actually real-time? You miss that life-size drama about careers that have been pointed toward a seat in F1 since the protagonists were eight years old?

And we’re there when Gasley learns he’s been demoted to Toro Rosso, his seat at Red Bull taken by Alex Albon. Who also raced karts with Gasley and Hubert. Who, one year ago, was also in F2. Helmut Marko: “He has nine races to prove himself, and the seat is his in 2020.”

Well, bunkie, I’ve got a solution for you. Formula 1: Drive to Survive, season two. You can find it on Netflix. And it’s free. Ten episodes. And, of course, Netflix makes it really easy to binge-view the production. After an episode ends, you do nothing. The system automatically segues to the next one.

Albon’s first race for Red Bull is at Spa. Verstappen drops out at the start. Albon goes from 14th to 5th. His career best. In his Red Bull debut.

A year ago, I reviewed season one. I found it thoroughly enlightening. Like peeling the onion on what actually goes on, especially behind the scenes. The love, the hate, the pressure, the support networks that all the drivers seem to have. Oh, and the racing. The racing itself was almost secondary. Almost, but not quite. Because the cinematography has flashes of brilliance. Even if you know what’s going to happen. Last time around, Mercedes and Ferrari didn’t participate. As a result, the producers were forced to cover everyone else. Which really amplified the drama associated with all the teams trying to be “best of the rest.” The drivers, the team principals, the whole traveling circus. Yes, it’s back. Only, this time around, with Mercedes and Ferrari also participating. I know, I know. Don’t worry, of course they’re covered. But not to the detriment of the rest of the field. I don’t know if it’s just me. But I keep trying to think of another sport which has opened its doors to the fan in such a transparent way. I know there are limitations in the series. No glimpses into driver negotiations, for example. No shots of drivers being told their services will no longer be needed. No analysis of performance data. No idea of just what the actual performance envelope of an F1 car actually is today. Other than the fact that they’re faster than last year’s cars. But, then again, can you name another sport that has allowed us into it’s inner circle? Friends, managers, parents, trainers. The good-natured kidding between teammates in the paddock. Counterposed by the same drivers out on the circuit, bouncing off each other. I came away from season one with a totally new appreciation for the whole crazy affair. And the kids … ok, we can call most of them young adults … who have devoted virtually all of their formative years to one dream. To be an F1 “pilot.” You see them literally pinching themselves. Has this been done before? With the exception of the movie Senna, I don’t think so. The story theme that occupies much of the narrative revolves around Pierre Gasley, now in Daniel Ricciardo’s seat at Red Bull, trying to establish himself. Christian Horner, Red Bull Team Principal, says, “If they’re good enough, they survive. If they’re not good enough…. The thing is, who’s good enough to partner with Max Verstappen. P7 or 8 or 9 has no value to us.” We visit Gasley at home, a home he left at 13 to go karting. We’re there when he finds out that Antoine Hubert has suffered a fatal crash in the F2 race. They’ve been close friends since they both went karting. We see the photos.

| 34 |

Cyril Abiteboul, team principal at Renault. “I know that, if I don’t deliver, my life expectancy is very short.” His dilemma is what to do about Nico Hulkenberg who, we learn, has had the longest career in F1 without a podium. There’s no way he doesn’t think about it, says journalist Will Buxton. At Hockenheim, in that great equalizer, the rain, Hulkenberg rises to P2. And spins out. “You can’t blame the elements, can’t blame the track, can’t blame the car,” Says Abiteboul. For 2020, his seat is taken by Esteban Ocon. Who has been reserve driver for Mercedes. Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff, addressing the team at the start of the season, “We must manage expectations, stay modest.” At Monaco, mourning the death of Niki Lauda, “Niki had the ability to make things happen. He called Lewis (Hamilton) to get him to come to the team. Otherwise, he would not do it…. Niki would say the most painful incidents are the ones where we learn the most. We recover and come out stronger.” Claire Williams. “As a child I didn’t understand how famous my dad was. I don’t want to disgrace the Williams name. I don’t want the team to fall apart under me … this is a family business. I took this job to protect a legacy.” She holds the title Deputy Team Principal, under her father, Frank, who’s shown mostly in the background, in his wheelchair. Their season is summed up by driver George Russell at Silverstone. “Obviously, I want to be world champion. And I believe I will get there one day. The teams know your (personal) performance. But I’m driving around in 19th position, week in and week out. I don’t want to be there.” At the end of the race, Russell says, “lap after lap, the car’s like a yoyo. I feel like an idiot.” The series concludes with a big nod toward 2020. Zak Brown, McLaren Team Principal, notes that they have had a successful season, but they have a long way to go, if they want to catch the top three. Their driver Carlos Sainz has proven very competitive in his first season for them. And Gasley … Gasley! … has seized a P2 in Brazil with Toro Rosso, his first podium ever, with Lewis behind him. “Thank God! This is the best day of my life,” he says. 2020 looks to be one of the biggest years ever. A majority of drivers have contracts that expire at the end of the season. It’s a new chapter. As if. At this writing, the first six races of 2020 are canceled. Enjoy the Netflix series. It’s all we’ve got. But it’s worth it.


BOOK REVIEWS FOR PORSCHEPHILES by Bruce Herrington, Orange Coast Region

FORMULA ONE: THE CHAMPIONS 70 YEARS OF F1 DRIVERS

FORMULA ONE: THE CHAMPIONS 70 YEARS OF F1 DRIVERS, by Maurice Hamilton, photography by Bernard and Raoul-Henri Cahier, published 3 March 2020, by White Lion Publishing, London, UK.

T

his book begins with a rather self-centered Foreword by Bernie Ecclestone, who, for better or worse, was an integral part of Formula one and it’s championships. The Introduction, replete with several driver portraits, provides an overview of the history of Formula One and sets the tone for the stories of effort, perseverance, and of course luck, which follow. The text is all about the guys – the champions, not the championships nor the cars. The racing careers of all 33 (through the 2019 season) are profiled. Included are many drivers, no where near as famous as the excluded Stirling Moss (who indeed never was a Champion, a whole ‘nother story), but who achieved at least one World Champion title. The author of this profusely illustrated book is a prominent, long time British motor-sports writer and broadcaster, apparently no relation to Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, or once famous sports-car racer Duncan Hamilton,. Though well written and very readable, and including quotes from the champions themselves, the point of this book is the outstanding photographs by Bernard Cahier, familiar to old time Road&Track readers, and his son Raoul-Henri. The pictures with comprehensive captions give an up close and personal look at the drivers and their environment. Included is an interesting shot of a handsome Niki Lauda, a face forgotten by some; never known by many.

These captivating stories are not just about on-track performances, but about backgrounds, personalities and character. Definitely not a book of dry racing statistics, it provides insight into the champions as people, not just as racers. Though there are some descriptions of extraordinary daring-do on the track, it is basically about the drivers themselves, their backgrounds, character and interactions. One need not be a racing enthusiast to appreciate the interesting biographies in this book, or the intellectually elevating effect of the polysyllabic British vocabulary used. Presented in chronological order of their first championship, the story of Lewis Hamilton, current reigning champion, is somewhat awkwardly not the last chapter in the book. There is barely mentioned Porsche content because both Niki Lauda and Alain Prost drove Porsche powered McLarens in the mid ‘80s. FORMULA ONE is coffee table sized, but without the dust jacket it is just a plain red book. The end papers present a checkerboard of faces. - some are familiar, but you have to read the book to be able to identify all of them. A must have for anyone interested in the stories of Formula One drivers, their professional lives and racing careers. Perhaps to become out dated by the crowning of future champions, this book will forever be a ‘classic’. The first printing might even become a ‘collector’ book. Hardcover with 240 9-1/2 x 12 inch pages, it is printed on heavy, semi-gloss paper to enhance the crispness of the photographs. Pictures are all black and white until color shots of Jackie Stewart appear in ‘69 and ‘71 There is a limited index. By the time you read this, it should be available for $45.00 from your favorite book seller (ask for it), or from QuartoKnows.com
