PRESIDENT’S NOTE

Mark

Manente

"There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don't care who gets the credit." Ronald Regan

We hope you had a great holiday. May you all have a healthy, peaceful, and prosperous New Year. The club wrapped up 2023 with our Holiday party, the last special social event of the season, at Grayhawk Golf Club on 12/17 with 119 in attendance. Thank you all who came out on a Sunday evening. And special thanks to those who donated gift cards for Sunshine Acres Children's Home. Angela organized this year's holiday party because we had an opening for social chair last January. Organizing any large event is a mountain of work. Abby Ercoline, our social chair would second that, as she organized the 2023 Flight 45/Concours. Abby will be busy looking for the venue for the 2024 Holiday party. It wouldn't be a holiday party without Mark Baker, past president, our resident "Richard Avedon", setting up his traveling portrait studio. You can find all the photos on our website: az.pca.org. Jeanne, his lovely wife, baked the Porsche emblem cookies again this year for each guest. Thank you both. It was great to see everyone. I have completed my first year as President. The year went by quickly and not without its challenges. Our club continues to add new members. We have been able to support many events and offset inflationary pressures. The club had a fabulously full 2023! We held over 59 events in 2023: � � � � �

15 Track Day's- 8 Autocross and 7 HPDE Thank you Kim Kemper and Dan Bouet. 15 Driving Tours: Rook Younger, Mark Baker, Jim Bultema, 10 Monthly Member dinner meetings: Jim and Carole Bultema 9 Porsches and Pancakes Saturday get togethers: Dennis Rood and Frank Grimmelmann 10 Special Social events: Angela M., Mark Baker & Jeanne, Frank G., Gregg Bull, Abby Ercoline and Andy Cole

In 2024, the AZPCA will be celebrating its 65th anniversary. PCA provides us with anniversary decals for our 1675 Primary members. We will have them available at upcoming events. As you know all events fill up very quickly. If you have an interest in assisting in the clubs' activities reach out to those directors or committee members. You can find them on the website under the "About Us" tab. What is evident is that each committee chair responsible for organizing an event doesn't do it alone. For example; those of you who attend a HPDE and AX realize it is a group effort and a family affair. That is why this year most of the Aman-Steele Award nominees were couples. Thank you, spouses, for all you do. Personally, I couldn't fill the president's role without Angela, my wife of 53 years. She has always been there in all my endeavors. In 1976 she agreed to type my master's thesis on our portable Smith Corona typewriter. The document had to be typed without mistakes, no white out, so the university could have it bound and put in the stacks. Not only could you hear the click, click of the Smith Corona, but the "xxxx" if there was a mistake, and paper being crumpled. Nothing has changed now, when she was planning New Members' Day or organizing photos for the holiday party slide show. "They say a lifetime is like a toilet paper roll, the further along you get the faster it goes around..." Make it a great month. Mark M.

From the EDITORS

Gregg and Ali Bull

“For Last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” T.S. Eliot

How does one go about describing 2023 in a mere few paragraphs…… The year started out with a visit to the Martin Auto Museum for our first Members Meeting, the Autocross gang descended upon the AMP Skidpad to dance with the cones, we had our first drive of the year to Bagdad and Porsches n’ Pancakes dropped in a Daddy-O’s grill. This year we also visited We-Ko-Pa, Lucille’s, Arrevederci’s, Aunt Chilada’s, Porsche Chandler, The Persian Room, Alpio’s Peakview Garage, The Porch and Raven Gastropub for our monthly Members meetings. Porsche n’ Pancakes were held at Daddy-O’s, Rock Springs, The Thumb, Original 5 Diner, Smooze, Black Mountain Coffee, Soul Café, the simply stunning Anthem Golf & Country Club and finally US Egg in Scottsdale, these are all club favorites and always well attended. Our local drives this past year were second to none, we did the East Valley Loop, Lake Roosevelt, the 3 Lakes Drive, Alpine Tour, Prescott and the Palace, La Posada & Meteor Crater, the Charity drive to Cottonwood, Mt. Lemmon, Four-Peaks off road drive, Fall Colors to Flagstaff, Valley View Dinner Drive and the Prescott Holiday Lights Drive. We had 2 out of state drives, firstly we had the Vegas run which saw us hook up with both the Nevada PCA group and the Vegas chapter, a visit to Gaudin Porsche and a truly epic drive in the Valley of Fire. The second drive was to Porsche Parade in Palm Springs California, this was Ali and I’s first Parade and it really is a special event and our own Rook and Debbie along with Doug and Susie organized and supported the driving tours, first class throughout. The Club also had a few “Special” events throughout the year, we visited Don’s Secret Car Collection, we enjoyed Dennis’s All Porsche Display, Mark B, Jeanne S and Alpio hosted the Charity Casino Evening, we had our 10th annual Diamondbacks evening, Flight 45 Concours de Elegance, the Ultimate Porsche Showcase, the F1 Viewing Event at Alpio’s Troon facility and last but not least the AZPCA 2023 Holiday Party. We can all be truly thankful that we belong to a very special club, we have sadly lost a few members this year but our club can be very proud how we have all come together in people’s time of need. Stay Strong, Stay Healthy and may your God be with you. Gregg & Ali

IMPORTANT AZPCA Information

AZPCA Region Event Cancelation Policies & Event Organizer Responsibilities Event Cancellation Policy Most of our events have attendance limits, and they fill up quickly. Also, we often have waiting lists for those wishing to attend but do not have a secured attendance spot. Increasingly, attendees sign up and simply do not show up for the event without canceling in advance. This behavior impacts the event registrar/organizer, the event facility, and those on the waiting list wanting to attend but cannot. This behavior demonstrates a lack of common courtesy, requiring it to be addressed proactively. On the first occurrence a warning will be issued, and on the second occurrence privileges to attend future events may be impacted. Also, any registration fees for paid events will be forfeited without recourse since the club is charged regardless. The cancelation policy requires cancelation of your registration on MSR for paid or unpaid events a minimum of 7 days prior to the event date, unless there are serious and extenuating emergency circumstances as assessed by the event registrar/organizer. Most importantly, please be courteous to your fellow members so that everyone has an opportunity to enjoy events. Event Organizer Responsibilities Event organizers are required to send out a reminder approximately 9 days in advance of any event reminding registrants of the event and summarizing their responsibilities by including the following language: Thank you for your RSVP. Please note that whether or not there is a registration fee for this event, the restaurant is expecting a certain number of attendees we provide to them in advance and incur cost accordingly. If you need to cancel please do so at least one week prior to the event date (being a no-show without notice is rude to other members who wish to attend, the restaurant and to the event organizer). Additionally, if there is a fee or prepayment associated with the event, it will be forfeited if cancelled less than 7 days before the event. Thank you!”

Additionally, event organizers are requested to send out a reminder two or three days prior to the event simply as a courtesy to remind those attending.

Mystery Sonoran Desert Drive & Lunch [Saturday, 1/13/2024, 10:00-2:30 pm]

Join your fellow Tri-State Porsche Extravaganza participants for a spirited drive through the northern Sonoran Desert, leaving from Alpio's at Troon immediately after the Cars & Coffee showcase, and arriving at a mystery destination in time for a late lunch offering a variety of restaurants to suit every taste! Driving through the Northern Sonoran Desert is a mesmerizing journey that unveils breathtaking scenery at every turn. As you traverse this arid landscape, you'll be captivated by the stark beauty of the desert's rugged terrain, with its towering saguaro cacti and vibrant wildflowers. But what truly makes this drive exceptional are the unexpected oases that dot the landscape, where pristine lakes shimmer under the sun, framed by majestic mountains that rise in the distance. The juxtaposition of the arid desert and the lush pockets of water creates a striking contrast that makes the journey through the Northern Sonoran Desert an unforgettable experience, offering a glimpse into the awe-inspiring wonders of nature. Note that you and your guest must be registered in advance to participate on this drive and must be PCA Members in Good Standing to register Online.

AZPCA Drive Review : Prescott Holiday Lights Thanks to Rook & Debbie Younger for another awesome AZPCA Drive!

STORY BY Geneva Sorum

Starting our Prescott Holiday Lights drive from North Phoenix, the transition across diverse landscapes is captivating for both drivers and passengers. From the desert landscape of Wickenburg, driving up granite mountains, through high desert valleys and into the pines of the Prescott Forest offers amazing views. The winding serpentine highway AZ 89, also known as the Granite Mountain Hotshots Highway, is a blast in our Porsches. Several motorists even got out of our way so we could make the most of the climb up “Yarnell Hill” from the desert floor to Peeples Valley, through Yarnell. It is a beautiful scenic route anytime between Prescott to the Valley, no matter which direction you travel. Dubbed “Everybody’s Home Town”, Prescott comes alive during this season, adorning the iconic Courthouse Square with a dazzling display of festive lights that certainly shows its Christmas holiday spirit. The Gurley Street Grill served a delicious meal with warm hospitality to our large group. We stayed for as long as we could to visit with our new and familiar club friends. After dinner, a smaller group of us went on to join the annual party of the Arizona Mountain Region PCA club at the historic Hassayampa Inn. It was complete serendipity that their club scheduled their annual holiday party event on the same night, in the same town as our driving destination. Lucky for us, they invited us to join them for their festivities complete with live music and a Toys for Tots gathering. A perfect conclusion to a wonderful evening with our Arizona clubs.

BOOK REVIEWS FOR PORSCHEPHILES BY BRUCE HERRINGTON, ORANGE COAST REGION THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE REVOLUTION The Past, Present and Future of EVs by Kevin A Wilson, published 2023 by Motorbooks, Beverly MA.

The bloom may be fading from the ‘green’ tree - rumors abound about bankruptcy of electric bus companies, cancellation of wind farm programs, and tens of thousands of dollar losses on each of the few EVs sold from an increasing backlog of vehicles. This book will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about EVs (defined to include Hybrids as well as pure Electrics), probably more than you ever thought there was to know about the EV industry. There is a very comprehensive and thorough treatment of non-internal combustion automobiles (though steam is present only in two pictures). It points out that EVs have been here for over a century and indeed once almost dominated the auto industry. Overall, this book seems very well researched, interesting and easy to read, The first five (of ten) chapters deal with what might be called the pre-revolutionary times when electrics tended to be small production curiosities, though it is noted that as early as 1900, Pope alone, produced 1000 electric automobiles in one year. There’s also an interesting story of how Ransome E. Olds only started internal-combustion Oldsmobiles after his electric car factory burned down. There is considerable incidental discussion of the early days of the auto industry generally, and interesting stories about efforts to solve the problem of an electric car out-of-’gas’. Surprising to this reviewer were the descriptions of shoe-string electric vehicle companies whose linear descendants are prominent conglomerates today. Also told is how ‘lawyers’ had as much or more of an influence on the development of the automobile industry as did the engineer-designers. Battery technology and weight are described as ongoing issues, and high prices limited market acceptance a century ago, just as now. An interesting feature is the inclusion of illustrations of advertising materials from a century ago. The second half of THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE REVOLUTION shows how Rachel Carlson’s initiation of environmental awareness, with the 1962 publication of her book Silent Spring, followed by the ‘oil crisis’ of the early ‘70s spurred a more organized effort to bring EVs back into the mainstream. The turning point seems to be Roger Smith’s insistence that GM push it’s all electric EV1 sedan in the early 90s. He was pilloried for his ‘failed leadership’ of GM, but the EV1 was the first vehicle to prove that an all-electric vehicle could be considered a ‘real car’. In addition to discussion of political, economic and societal influences on the adoption of ‘electric’ vehicles, there are discussions of a multitude of design considerations. Described are linear and parallel hybrid systems, AC and DC electricity, Lead-acid and Nickel Hydride batteries, as well as more modern Lithium-ion and Nickel-Metal-Hydride technologies. Then there are analog vs digital control systems to consider as well as the pros and cons of regenerative recharging. The treatment of the technology and the industry is so thorough that a case is even made for why Tesla’s success as an automobile company is because it is run by a cadre of non-automotive types. The author’s conclusion is that EVs are here to stay (again), even though for the foreseeable future, they will be dependent on fossil fuels for recharging. Environmental concerns are discussed as motivating the development and use of EVs, but the environmental ramifications of the manufacture and disposal of such cars and their batteries is ‘an exercise left to the student’. THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE REVOLUTION is hardbound with a photographic cover and 176, 8-1/2 x 10 inch well

illustrated pages. The extensive three-page, three-column index lists eight references to Porsche. It should be available for $35.00 from your favorite bookseller or from QuatroKnows.com.

Treffen Spring 2024 When: April 21–25 Where: Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, CA Website: treffen.pca.org

When someone mentions “Wine Country” in the U.S., one place immediately comes to mind – the famous Napa/Sonoma region in Northern California. Come join us as Treffen North America heads to this bucket list destination on April 21-25, 2024. About an hour north of the city of San Francisco, both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys are well known for their award-winning wineries, fantastic cuisine, and breathtaking scenic drives. Our host hotel is the iconic AAA Four-Diamond Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa off Hwy 12. The Inn boasts geothermal fed mineral pools and farm to table dining. The city is known for its art galleries and the colonialera Sonoma Plaza. Surrounding this plaza are significant 19th-century adobe buildings including Mission San Francisco Solano and the Sonoma Barracks, once used by the Mexican military. Running parallel east of Sonoma Valley is the legendary Napa Valley, we will be touring both valleys as well as sampling many of the local favorites and attractions. You can also take the opportunity for a drive on the Pacific Coast Highway, take a ride on the Napa wine train or hot air balloon, or explore the SF Bay Area. This is a limited capacity event due to availability in the region. Rentals from Porsche Drive are available at various places in the Bay Area. Join us at https://www.facebook.com/treffennorthamerica for more info.

“Touring America’s Wine Country” Registration opens on January 10th at 1pm AZ time (3pm E.S.T.)

The best, The Worst and Everything in Between STORY BY DANIELLE BADLER

What is it, about this time of year, that drives people to make lists? The best, the worst, the fill in the blank? The urge runs rampant as we begin another circle of the Sun, especially when it comes to looking forward, looking back, looking at all things automotive.

There’s a word for it, listification. It may or may not be in the dictionary. But it’s real. Really real. It’s the art, the drive, the mania, simply to make lists. Ten best, ten worst, anything on anything. What I want to know is why … just what is it in our psyche that drives us to quantify our views, hierarchically. Especially when most (all?) of those views are driven by subjective judgement based on our own likes, dislikes, prejudices and passions. Oh sure, we can create parameters, we can create priority qualifications for our lists. But that doesn’t make the output necessarily right, in any purely objective manner. What we choose as guidelines are subjective, in and of themselves, by definition. Remember, there’s the question of who’s deciding, what’s their cred in making those lists, what do they know that we don’t know, what do we admire in what they do know. I don’t claim to have the answers. But I do know that this list-making is getting whackier and whackier as time goes on. Take one I just came across from Popular Mechanics, which, I must admit, I didn’t know still existed. Maybe that’s why they made the list. It’s titled “This is Our Definitive List of the 103 Coolest Cars of All Time.” That’s exactly the title. Why 103? I have no idea, and they don’t say. What’s “cool?” Again, they don’t say. Their only requirement is that at least one fully drivable version had to be made. I’ll cut to the chase; no. 103 is the Ferrari 250 GTO. Duh. But it gets a little weird when you count back from there. No. 102 is the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. And it’s followed by, in order, the Jaguar XJ13, the Ferrari 330 P4, the E-Type Jag, the Porsche 550, the ’63-’67 Corvette, the Miura, the Ferrari Dino and the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing. That’s the top 10. Yes, the Aston-Martin DB5 is also on the list, as is the AC Cobra and the Porsche Carrera GT and 918, and the 288GTO, and the McLaren F1. Fine, I wouldn’t dare argue with that. But the list also includes the VW Karmann Ghia, the Triumph Spitfire, the Hudson Hornet and the DeLorean DMC-12. Yeah, I know. No Porsche 904, no 917, no 962, no Blower Bentley, no Mercer Raceabout, no … ok, I’ll stop. Get my point? What is the point? What is the point of compiling this list? And why am I critiquing it? I just don’t know. Here’s another popular and time-worn subject. The best drivers of all time. To answer that question, the British magazine Autosport asked 217 former F1 drivers to vote. And here’s the top ten, in rising order; Gilles Villeneuve, Alonzo, Moss, Lauda, Stewart, Clark, Prost, Fangio, Schumacher and, drum roll, Senna. No Verstappen, no Hamilton, but then again, I couldn’t find a date for the on-line posting. | 46 |


What does it mean? Other than the fact that six have passed on to that straightaway in the sky, three in racing accidents? Don’t ask me. Although I did find an article on the site “GP Fans” that quotes the wee Scot as saying the three best drivers of all time are, in ascending order, Senna, Clark and Fangio. To quote Stewart, “Juan Manuel Fangio, in my mind, is the greatest driver that ever lived … these people only raced maybe sometimes six or eight or nine races a year in Formula 1. They were driving sports cars, GT cars etcetera.” You can comment here … or not. But that’s the point, isn’t it. There is no point, no resolution. What about Hamilton? What about Verstappen? What about competing in other forms of racing? Any other form of racing? Let’s discuss. Ad nauseum. Not me. I’ve had enough, and I’m bucking the trend. I’m not giving in. One thing I do know is that I will NOT create a year-end list of the best of anything, past, present or future. From here on out, I’m taking it as it comes. So there.

ell it’s that time of year when owning a Porsche convertible in the Valley of the Sun is near heaven. Not much better having the top down on a 76-degree day. Like everything on a Porsche, the convertible top needs care, maintenance, and a plan.

gears is made of plastic and over time splits. You might be saying why the heck did they do that??? The plastic gear is the weak link in the system and it is designed to fail so the convertible top bows don’t bend. Until recently the re-

Overall, Porsche convertible tops are well-made and reliable when you factor in how many times they are put up and down in their lifetime. To simplify this article we are going to concentrate on 1999-2012 911 and 1997-2012 Boxster because they are the most common convertibles being driven today. Convertible tops use hydraulic rams or a gear driven motor to move a canvas top and the metal cover, called the clam shell, to store the top up or down. Convertible tops do not waterproof the inside of the car. They are designed to move the water to channels in the body and then safely shed onto the ground. When the top is functioning correctly this process works great. There is a lot of torque that is needed to move the top up and down and Porsche does this two different ways. The 911 is run with a hydraulic motor that moves two hydraulic rams which push and pull the top up and down. A Boxster uses an electric motor that cable-drives two sets of gears. These gears, called a transmission, then push and pull the top up and down. Both systems work well but have their own sets of unique problems. Both systems use micro switches (think tiny light switches) that are turned off and on when the top is opening. The purpose of these switches is to turn the power off and on to the convertible top. All it takes is one of these micro switches to have a problem and the convertible top will not close or open. It is an intricate dance to the top to open and close. The main Boxster convertible problem is inside the gear-driven transmission. One of the

placement gears were not available and you had to replace the whole convertible top transmission. Now just the gear can be replaced. One other problem with early Boxsters and 911s is that the plastic window will crack and turn yellow over time. The 911 does not have the plastic gear, but it does have a complicated hydraulic system that likes to leak. When the fluid runs out the convertible top will not work. Both the 911 and Boxster tops can be closed manually if there is a problem, but it is somewhat complicated. This is where having a plan comes in. Everything you need to know in case of a problem is located in your owner’s manual. If you don’t have one I highly recommend you purchase one. There is a ton of information on your car inside the owner’s manual. Take some time and read the chapter on the convertible top and what to do in case of an emergency. Caring for the convertible top is not hard. The canvas top is very tough and needs to be cleaned when the car is washed. Porsche recommends their Wash-shampoo and Convertible Top Cleaner. Any mild car wash soap should do the trick but make sure to read the label. I don’t like to get much soap on the top because it soaks into the canvas. Also, make sure that the convertible top drains

are clean of leaves and dirt or the water will get into places you don’t want. Also, it is a good idea when the car is going to be stored for more than a day or two to keep the top closed. This goes double for plastic rear windows. Also the top mechanism should be inspected and lubricated anBoxster plastic gear nually. As With anything that wears over time, overuse will shorten the convertible top components’ life. So try not to open/close the top more than a few times a day.

Stuttgart Market Letter Written by David K. Whitlock

While this month's sell-through rate was once again below average at 68%, total dollar volume reached a higher-than-average sum of over $40m thanks to a number of high-end cars coming to market, including two Carrera GTs, a 959, and 918 Spyder. We also saw the lowest sale of the year with a 1980 924 project car fetching $500. While that bottom of the market sale is impressively low, our top sale, a 2005 Carrera GT finished in GT Silver Metallic over an Ascot Brown interior showing just 601 miles was equally impressive at a final bid of $1,781,420, a price we haven’t seen since the summer of 2022. Earlier in the month a Fayence Yellow over Dark Grey 2005 Carrera GT sold for $1,400,000 with just under 9,000 miles on the clock. Other million-dollar sales included a rare 2019 935 at $1,626,000, a 1988 959 Komfort that brought $1,600,000, a $1,450,000 918 Spyder with Weissach Package, and a 1994 911 Turbo S 3.6 that just cracked the $1m mark at $1,075,000. Certain GT cars were also impressive this month with a 4,000-mile Guards Red 2011 911 GT2 RS bringing a top-of-the-market price of $705,000. This was a very strong sale against a $480,000 average for 997.2 GT2 RS’. On the GT2 front was a 2003 911 GT2 that brought a solid number at $192,000 and a pair of 2018 GT2 RS’ that brought $278,000 and $350,750. 992 GT3s continued their slide this month with winged cars selling at an average price of $231,000 and a top sale of $260,000 for a 6-speed example finished in Paint to Sample Gulf Blue. 6-speed Touring models were a little stronger with two cars selling for $255,000 and $279,000 as they distance themselves further from the $300k mark. We also saw one more GT3 RS Weissach car come to market but it failed to sell at a final bid of $380,000. 356s were a mixed bag with our top sale being a 1965 356 SC Sunroof Coupe selling for $160,000, a good clip above the $123,000 average we’ve seen over the last twelve months. We also saw strong results for 356 Cs with two examples selling north of $120,000 propping the later 356 market up after a few disappointing sales and no-sales. One notable no sale for the month was a 1958 356 A Speedster that failed to sell at a final bid of $293,000, which wasn’t far off from other transactions we’ve seen lately. On the normal 911 front, SCs and Carrera 3.2s had a hard time selling as only half the cars offered found homes in November with modified versions of both generations taking top honors. 964s continued their climb with a number of coupes above the $100k mark and a sell-through rate of 75%. Your standard 993, 996, and 997s on the other hand were fairly flat all around, whether Coupe, Cabriolet, or a 4 or S.

| 56 |


As we head into the final month of the year, it looks like the overall market has steadied after a bit of a softening. However, with big sales from RM Sotheby’s of The White Collection, and cars offered during NYC’s Luxury Week, we expect some impressive results as a number of cars offered are prime collector examples of the best of what Porsche has produced.

Drive your Porsche on a Racetrack with AZPCA! Expand your car control skills and explore the capabilities of your Porsche on a racetrack in a safe, controlled environment with no speed limits! AZPCA’s HPDE & TT program (that’s short for High Performance Driver Education and Time Trials) is all about experiencing your Porsche on a road circuit. AZPCA provides personal driving instructors for new participants to guide them through the day. Our instructors will navigate you along the road circuit, teach you the fundamentals of driving at track speeds, but also keep you in a comfort zone so you have a good time. There are flaggers on track, just like at a real racing event. The club also arranges an ambulance and tow truck on site for emergencies. For the HPDE events, four groups of approximately 10-25 drivers are formed based on experience level- Beginner, Intermediate, Experienced, Advanced. Grouping allows everyone attending to have a good time. Beginners don’t have to stress about having little/no experience- chances are, there are several other drivers in the same group just starting out. Based on instructor evaluation, you are advanced to the next group up when appropriate. Sometimes this is after one day, or sometimes it takes a several events. Higher run groups typically means more speed but with a better, practiced skill set to control the speed safely. This keeps track days exciting for you as you advance your skill set. While this is definitely NOT racing, there is a natural tendency to evaluate yourself to other drivers in your group, but HPDE is not structured to award “fast” times. To satisfy the competitive nature in you, we offer an optional “Time Trials” sessions where those specific TT sessions are timed and you compete against others in your class. Lap times are broadcast live so you can see in real time how you stack up against your competitors. Time trials are structured so that you get three clean laps, meaning, you will be by yourself on track without dealing with other cars in your way. How is a typical HPDE day structured? A track day starts around 6:30 -7:00 am. You’ll check-in and get your car safety inspected on-site first. A drivers meeting kicks off around 7:45 am, with the first car on track around 8:30 am. A forty minute lunch break splits the day and the event is usually over around 4:00 pm. You can expect five 20-minute sessions (100 mins total) of track time each day, although some events are structured with four 25-minute sessions. Time trial sessions are optional to add-in during your registration, and that consists of two additional timed sessions (one morning, one afternoon) consisting of three hot laps. The beginner group will also have classroom discussion after their sessions to discuss car-control and vehicle dynamics and what they experienced. | 58 |


The club either provides lunch or there is an option to purchase one on site. Since there is down time in-between your driving sessions and classroom discussion, there is lots of opportunity for comradery with other club members and opportunity to socialize and check out other cars attending. What do you need to bring? Your vehicle (preferably a Porsche) in good maintenance. (Some club members bring their other cars btw – we won’t shame you if you do that) We provide a required checklist of things to inspect on your car before coming to a track day. If you aren’t mechanically inclined (or don’t care to do this yourself), you can take the checklist to a mechanic of your choice to do the inspection for you. We have a few places we can recommend if you don’t have a preferred mechanic. Main points of interest are good tires, brakes, brake fluid, no leaking fluids, no abnormal driving characteristics of the vehicle. We conduct a final brief safety inspection on your vehicle the morning of the event. Helmets are typically available to rent when you register for the event– you can try the sport before you commit to purchasing a helmet. There are additional items you can bring to make the day more comfortable or exciting – chairs, cameras, etc. There are lots of online video you can watch telling you to bring this or that. While that can be somewhat helpful down the road, keeping it basic is usually best. If you forget something, chances are there is someone there that will let you borrow/have theirs. Lastly and most important: don’t forget to bring a desire to have a good time and willingness to learn!

Auto-X 2023/24 Happy Holidays from Autocross Hey Autocrossers,

PROVIDED BY RICK ALTHOUSE & KIM KEMPER

Here are the results from the December Autocross. The 1st file is all of the raw times along with the number of cones hit. There is a 2 second penalty for each cone. The 2nd file is the Top Time Of Day, with everyone’s best run sorted from the fastest to the slowest. Congratulations to Bruce H. for setting TTOD overall and to Jonathan B. for Group Porsche TTOD! We had a very interesting course designed by Bill P. for this month. This course had us running counterclockwise and featured a tight center loop, a few higher speed sweepers, and some technical areas. Due to the length of the course with the center loop, lap times averaged about 10 seconds more than most courses. Thanks to Bill P., Dane T., Jim E. and Chris M. for helping us set up the course on Friday morning. We had another great sold-out event. Registrations were light until the beginning of December, then came on strong. Early morning on Saturday was actually cold with a penetrating wind that didn’t subside. Layering was definitely a requirement. By late morning, the temperature was about perfect. Porsches were outnumbered on this day with 11 while Group X had 28 cars. There were only 3 first time Autocrossers this month. Two of those were a father / daughter driving the same car that led to some entertaining competition. We had a nice lunch provided by Pat the Hot Dog Lady. A great facility, exceptional cars, and friends made for a fantastic event. As always, thanks to all for helping set up and taking down and stowing the equipment and cones at the end of the day! We do need your continued support to keep these events successful. We hope to see everyone again next year on January 20. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and wishing everyone a Happy New Year! Rick and Kim
