t has been a busy two months with Phoenix Flight 42, our 60th Anniversary Gala and our Holiday Party. Now it’s time to regroup for the new year. Rook is planning a series of tours in preparation for a big event the region will host in 2021. I personally will be leading anyone who wants to go to the Tubac Car Show on Saturday, January 25. Although, this is not a Porsche exclusive event, it is one of the biggest car shows in Arizona with over 500 cars, including usually about 30 Porsches. It is held at the Tubac Golf Course, about a half mile from the town of Tubac with many shops and restaurants for the family to visit. I will also be running another off-road tour in April to Four Peaks and will lead my nerdy Hot Air Balloon Tour to New Mexico in October. In addition, watch for a number of other tours to appear on the calendar and we already have our full season of autocrosses and DE’s on the schedule. Keep an eye out for some new events such as a Rally and an “indoor” summer concours d’elegance, as well as our usual Sunday drives and Porsches and Pancakes. While this is not a Porsche event, club members are invited to Russo and Steele club night. Friday, January 17th is designated for German cars. Club members are invited to select a complementary VIP pass or complimentary Bidder credentials by visiting http:// www.russoandsteele.com/clubnights2020 to register using the PROMO CODE: GERMAN20. They will also provide premium “Display Parking” spots to the first 20 cars who wish to display their car for each club night. As I have said the last two months, this region depends on its volunteers. Our new Board of Directors is ready to lead us into the new year; however, we are in need of someone to schedule our monthly membership meetings. Mark Baker has been doing this for a long time and has now retired. Also, we are looking for someone to chair this year’s Phoenix Flight 43. This is a big event that will take a lot of volunteers but we need someone to oversee and coordinate. We usually see the same faces and we are appreciative of their support; however, it is important that we continue to bring fresh faces into the management of our region. Sometimes people think the job would be too hard or they won’t know what they are doing, but I assure you, you will receive great help from us and you will enjoy whatever you volunteer for, creating lasting memories and gaining many new friends. Please consider volunteering, even if it is just to sit at a registration desk for an hour. To a great coming year, Happy New Year! ‘Nuff said. Drive safely...

Attention AZPCA Members! Please let our sponsors know you are a member of the Arizona Porsche club and that you appreciate their support.

e have hit the ground running this year with lots of activities already schedule for January and February. Check the calendar and sign up before it’s too late!

I am looking for the photographer who took this month’s cover worthy photo at Phoenix Flight 42. Unfortunately, I am unable to find this information once photos are uploaded to our website! I love the photo and want to give kudos to the person who took it. I also appreciate the members who send me articles and pictures to use for the newsletter. If anyone has any technical projects or topics they are interested in sharing, please send them my way. This month we are going to award two winners for the Writer’s Monthly Award for the January issue of Going Places. The winners are: Ryan Hoadley for “60th Anniversary Gala” and Chas Wirken for “Porsche Mobile 1 Supercup - Italian Style.” They will each receive a $30. credit on Motorsportreg, which is good for one year to use on any AZPCA activity. Hope to see you soon at an upcoming club event. Just don’t forget to register!

REGION ANNOUNCEMENTS

Drive to Bartlett Lake/Cave Creek January 11, 2020 It’s been a while since we’ve taken the great road to Bartlett Lake, with its “Porsche curves” and beautiful views of the Sonoran Desert. The route will take us through some beautiful desert neighborhoods in North Scottsdale to the lake, where in January you are likely to see water skiers in wetsuits with snow-capped peaks in the background! After a break for some photo ops, we will head to Cave Creek for lunch at the iconic Horny Toad Restaurant, where your selection from the menu of comfort food must be followed by their famous strawberry shortcake for dessert!

AZPCA A-X #4, December 7, 2019

ey Autocrossers,

DRIVER Ken M

Here are the results from our Saturday, December 7th autocross. 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 Kenny for setting the TTOD! We had another fun course design from Kim for this event, featuring a loop. Thanks to Jim E. for helping Kim and I set up the course on Friday afternoon. Although on the chilly side in the morning, temperatures warmed in the afternoon and the threat of rain stayed away until after we were done. A nice lunch was provided by Pat the Hot Dog Lady’s helper. Thanks to everyone that helped set up and take down, and put away all of the gear and cones at the end of the day! We do need your continued support to keep these events successful.

60th Anniversary Gala by Ryan Hoadley photos by Rich Andrade and Jan Mackulak

I

n the Great Hall of the Phoenix Art Museum, under the watchful gaze of priceless works by Peter Paul Rubens, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Pablo Picasso and countless others, over 200 members of the Arizona region gathered for what was expected to be the grandest AZPCA party of the decade. It did not disappoint! Revelers began arriving at dusk and started their evening with an assortment of tasty Hors d’oeuvres - small mountains of fresh fruit, veggies, meats, crackers, cheese and other snacks strategically placed near one of the bars! Attendees had ample time to enjoy a drink and a snack before wandering the displays of artworks in the vicinity of the Great Hall along with the Legends of Speed exhibit. More than 20 legendary race cars were on display for members to view, including the #6 1973 Porsche 917/30.

The Great Hall at the Phoenix Art Museum.

Once reaching their table, each attendee found a special gift: a commemorative 60th Anniversary Gala wine glass engraved with the AZPCA logo. As delicious as the Hors d’oeuvres were, any party-goers who gorged on them a bit too much were likely also full of regret once the incredibly delicious buffet was opened for dinner. Pork roast, roasted turkey, fresh salads, au gratin potatoes and mini-cheesecakes are only a few of the highlights. The amount of compliments on the food was overwhelming and Atlasta Catering deserves recognition for their outstanding service!

Porsche 917/30.

After a heartfelt presentation from Arizona Region president and fearless leader, Steve Sapareto, the initial guest speakers took the stage: Zone 8 representative David Witteried, who congratulated our region on our exceptional growth and on our 60th year, and Craig Kugler, PCA National Treasurer, who mentioned that while he attends many anniversary parties he had not been to one with a venue and atmosphere quite like this! The featured guest of the evening was Lori Schutz, daughter of former Porsche AG CEO Peter Schutz. She gave a charming, informative and emotional talk about her father and his legacy, sharing details about how he saved the 911. If it wasn’t for her father and his actions you may not be reading these words today. Margie Smith-Haas, the first American woman to race in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and past Arizona Region president, was also in attendance. She was kind enough to share some words with the guests. I was fortunate enough to spend a few minutes chatting with her as she told me stories and showed me pictures from her racing career. It was an honor. The night came to an end too soon - as it always seems to do.

L to R - Lori Schutz, Janice and David Witteried. | 18 |


It wrapped up with Steve Sapareto, Jen Bartling and Betsy Andrade drawing tickets and distributing door prizes to a few lucky attendees, including a copy of the book “The Driving Force” signed by Peter Schutz and a stuffed Porsche pillow donated by Margie. The 60th Anniversary Gala exceeded all expectations and was a party worthy of the title “Best of the Decade.” Here’s to the volunteers that made it happen, and to 60 more years! Peter W. Schutz 1930-2017 “...what matters most of all was the dash between those years. For it matters not, how much we own, the cars...the house...the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.” Would you be proud of the things said about YOUR dash? Editor’s note: Kudos to Jen Bartling, Social Chair, for planning such an awesome celebration. Check out all the photos on our AZPCA website at: https://www.azpcaphotos.com/AZPCA-Social-Events/60thAnniversary-Gala/

I

s it just me, or do Porsche GT3 Cup cars sound better than current Formula One cars?

We traveled to Monza, Italy for the F1 race in September. After the Formula 2 and Formula 3 support races, a Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup race was held just before the F1 race. The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is an international one-make racing series supporting the FIA Formula One World Championship. The series was organized by Porsche AG in 1992 and has been an F1 support race since 1993. Drivers compete in identical 485 hp, seventh generation, Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars. The 2019 schedule took the drivers to the F1 tracks in Spain, Monaco, Austria, England, Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Italy and Mexico. The field of 32 cars in the Italian race engaged in some very close racing, as seen in the accompanying photos. Indeed, the race on the tradition-steeped Autodromo Nazionale circuit was chaotic from the outset, with cars immediately trading paint and positions at the first variante (chicane) of the first lap. Fifteen laps and thirty minutes later, Larry ten Voorde of the Netherlands celebrated his first Supercup victory. Following the Supercup race and before the F1 race, there was an airshow by the Italian Air Force’s Frecce Tricolori (“Tricolor Arrows”) aerobatic demonstration team. Their low-level pass down the main straight of the track shook the grandstand where I was standing on the top row. But I have digressed from the discussion of cars; admittedly to justify a photo of the planes in flight.

Oops!

Close racing.

My first-hand comparison of the sounds of Porsche and F1 race cars goes back a long time. I watched Steve McQueen win in a 908 at Phoenix International Raceway in 1970, and attended my first F1 race at Long Beach in 1977, which was won by Mario Andretti.

Do not attempt. | 20 |


The F1 cars of the past five years, with their turbocharged V6 engines, sound nothing like the eight, ten, and twelve cylinder cars of the past. Both the tone and volume are different; so different that I no longer wear earplugs at F1 races. The current-era cars sound like a flatulent cow when downshifting approaching a corner, and like a Ducati superbike when accelerating out of a corner. As Mario Andretti recently said of electric race cars: “To me, you take the noise away from race cars, you’re losing half the thrill, half the excitement.” While F1 cars are not electric-car quiet, they lack a visceral exhaust sound. Although the F1 race was dramatic – Ferrari won its home grand prix, and reigning World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, lost any chance of winning with a mistake in the chicane right in front of our seats – compared to modern F1 cars, I much prefer the scream of a GT3 Cup car.

T

he Holiday Party was a great night at the Ancala Golf and Country Club in Scottsdale. About 60 members and guests came to celebrate the season.

Upon arrival, Mark Baker, Event Chair, took pictures of each couple in front of the beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Mark and Jeanne Snyder made all the preparations including the special Porsche cookies for all the tables. Thank you both for a wonderful evening! We also had a dance instructor giving the group lessons and a DJ to provide the music for the evening. The 2020 Board of Director Officers were introduced and our charity was Camp Sunrise (they were the recipients of the $25 Target gift cards donated by our party attendees). Check out all the pictures on our club website at: https://www.azpcaphotos.com/AZPCA-Social-Events/2019-AZPCA-Holiday-Gala/

PORSCHE PUNDIT

by Rob Turner, Maverick Region PCA

While you’re in there...

B

ack in the early aughts, I owned a 1976 930 Turbo Carrera. I truly loved it. However, over a period of time it began to scare the hell out of me every time I drove it. I noticed a slapping noise coming from the engine bay when I let off the gas, especially when up-or-down shifting. After some research, it appeared to be a failing oil pressure spring in the fuel injection system, which caused the piston that bled off the internal oil pressure to slap or bottom out. A fix was needed. The housing for the spring was on the back of the engine (or front) – depending on your orientation. But from my vantage point, it was on the back. I don’t have huge hands but no matter how I tried to squeeze my hand into the tiny opening, I couldn’t get access to it. I tried to custom bend tools to access the bolts holding the assembly together. No dice. So, with the help of a friend, we figured out how to take the engine and transmission out of the car. We chalked the front wheels and jacked the back up using the biggest jack stands I could find. The car looked pretty funny; its nose low to the ground and the rear tilted up at an extreme angle. Slowly, the engine emerged from the bottom of the 930, a fraction of an inch at a time. We managed to clear the bumper with a half inch to spare. Lowered onto an engine stand made from a furniture dolly, we could finally work on it. Side note: we got so good at removing the engine, the half shafts, clutch cable, fuel and oil lines, and unplugging the engine harness, we could take the motor out (or put it back in) in ninety minutes. It usually cost me a six pack of good (pre micro-brewery) imported beer. Cheap? You bet. Oh yeah – that oil-pressure spring. It was easy, took me only a few minutes to change it. But, then I got to thinking. What else could I do? You know, while you’re in there. I adjusted the valves, replaced the clutch and flywheel, repacked the half-shafts, took out the nasty old sound insulation from the engine bay and replaced with new. It seems like every time I did one thing, dozens of others popped up. It was like playing whack-a-mole. I had told my wife all I was going to do was replace that spring. Five thousand dollars later, I had refreshed or refurbished many of the engine-bay components. Then there was the AC system. The drier unit needed replacing. But after inspecting the AC hoses, I realized they were shot. So, in another episode of – while you’re in there – I replaced the AC hoses. First, I priced them. Back then Porsche still sold the fabric-wrapped replacement sets (they’re no longer available). But I could buy them then if I didn’t mind spending almost three grand. As that was a budget buster, I took the hoses to an aeronautical firm that custom built hoses. Price? Three hundred bucks. And, an exact match. Problem was they were hard to install. Turns out the fabric- wrapped hoses bend easily. The rubber ones I bought, not so much. So, I spent an entire weekend kneeling in the front of the 930, the hood carefully propped open, bending hoses. My knees felt like they were on fire, they hurt so bad. But hey, while you’re in there. The point? How many times have you started an automotive project and realized that if you just do a little bit more, you can take care of a future project, you know - save time, save money. Because, while you’re in there. Recently I spent over five hours refurbishing the wheel barrels on my 981 S. I decided to remove the leftover rubber residue from having the old wheel weights removed at a tire shop. I came back upstairs several hours later, knuckles busted up, bleeding a bit and my wife looked at me and said, “I thought you were only going to wash the wheels. Oh wait – it’s another case of while you’re in there. Right?” Yep, busted again. Guilty as charged.

Something’s Going On Here

by Danielle Badler

A

nd you don’t know what it is. Do you, Mr. Jones. As we round the corner on a new year, I can hear the conversation, right in my head. Dylan is playing gently in the background. I’m listening to that bench-racing pantheon in the sky. There’s Enzo Ferrari, Lavazza in hand, almost spilling the coffee on Colin Chapman, who’s sipping an Earl Gray, as Ferdinand Piech, a new member, stands by, pulling on a Lowenbrau. Enzo starts. “Did you see the announcement in November that Ferrari would join with Armani to make clothes? Clothes! “It seems that the long-range plan of the suits that now run my company – my company -- is to make 10 percent of earnings from three new lifestyle ‘pillars,’ apparel, luxury services and entertainment.” He’s citing an article in Autoweek. Chapman’s next. “You may recall, my good man, that, after you passed, Ferrari built two theme parks, in Abu Dhabi and Barcelona, and two museums in Italy. They plan to add Formula One simulators at these venues, along with a new restaurant in Maranello. So what’s new?” Colin goes on. “I’ll tell you what’s new. Look what’s happening to Lotus! Track-testing a 1,973-hp electric car called the Evija. That’s right. Here are the maxims I lived by. ‘Simplify, then add lightness’ and ‘Adding power makes you faster on the straights. Subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere.’ Now, according to Autoweek, the Evija will weigh around 3,700 lbs. That’s like three Lotus Elites, on top of each other. Where did I go wrong?” It’s Piech’s turn. “Look at the Fatherland! Mercedes is delaying introduction of the Mercedes-AMG One, their F1-powered hyper car, from 2019 to 2021. Why? Because, apparently, it’s harder than it looks to tame their ‘propulsion system’ for the street. This is nuts. I read in MotorAuthority the following, ‘ … because the tolerances of the internals are so tight, an F1 engine normally can’t be started until it’s warmed to a temperature of about 175 degrees … it’s no surprise that the One’s engine will only be rated to 50,000 kilometers, after which a rebuild will be necessary.’ Imbeciles! And the worst part is that we did this at Porsche, with the 918!” The conversation continues, with Dylan’s “Forever Young,” now playing on a turntable in the background. On vinyl, of course. Piech, no shrinking violet, goes on. “1,000 hp, 1,500 hp. Big deal. We did it 40, 50 years ago, with the 917-30. I did it! Then we adapted turbo-charging for the street. And we invented Quattro. Now, these things made sense. And money. Where’s that electricity today?”

Enzo leaps out of his chair, his now-empty espresso cup crashing on the floor. He’s apoplectic about theme parks. “What are they? Why do they exist? What have they got to do with the Scuderia? You all do know, don’t you, that I only made road cars to fund our racing program. Now, I don’t even know how to say ‘theme park’ in Italian.” Chapman, always the engineer, calmly calls up his clipped, stiff upper accent. “You know, I made race cars that would be completely spent at the end of the race. I wanted them to fall apart, just after they passed the finish line. I wouldn’t personally dare drive one. And my street cars weren’t much better. But this. The Evija. Some hedge-fund hedonist from The City will wrap one around a tree before he can clear the first corner.” They all nod. Of course they do. “But there’s still hope,” says Piech. “Did you see? Roger Penske has bought the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And the IndyCar Series.” Enzo’s up on his feet again. “The Captain. That is almost the rank of Il Commendatore, yes?” They all nod, again. Colin speaks. “I thought he was already up here with us.” Dan Gurney walks in, sipping a Coke. No, no, he says, not yet. Piech again. “I heard a rumor from Niki Lauda, a recent arrival, you may recall, that Roger was also nosing around the Mercedes Formula One team. Mein gott.” Colin rolls his eyes. “I raced at Indy, and I won. But nobody asked me to buy the place.” “Colin,” says Gurney, “Penske has won Indy 18 times as a teamowner, along with five IndyCar championships.” “But can he walk on water? Can he soar with the angels?” It’s Ayrton Senna, from out of nowhere. He usually hangs with Niki and a younger crowd. “You can be on top of the world, idolized by millions. Billions. And, one mistake, one flaw, one alignment of errors … and it’s all over. Colin, just ask Jim Clark.” They all nod, yet again. Colin is exceptionally quiet. Then he rises to leave. As he reaches the door, he turns back and speaks, “I hope Roger knows what’s going on, and where he’s going. By the way, Happy New Year to you all.” “Same to you, Colin,” they all intone.

Carroll Shelby saunters in. Lone Star in hand. “Exactly. I just want to know one thing. How do you hot-rod a sumbitch electric motor?” G O I N G P L A C E S 81.2020
