kms which is worth about the same as my 997.2 S which as only done 20,000 kms.

.

The 997 certainly is a better daily driver as it does everything more effortlessly, but it certainly does not sound as good as the 993. It’s a precision instrument which has evolved as the 911 has been developed over the years, but it certainly lacks something that brings a smile to my face when I fire up the 993. And I guess I have answered my own question. The air cooled is a nostalgic emotional right-side brain car where the 997 is a rational left-side brain car.

It seems to me that there are two very defined used Porsche Markets; the classic (‘64 - 97’) and the modern (‘98+) or you could describe it as air cooled vs water cooled.

And that’s why we are seeing crossover in values as the older air-cooled cars values surge past the modern cars.

These two markets appeal to very different buyers and drivers. As the years pass by and new models are released the older models are inevitably pushed down the values ladder.

I guess you just need one of each to keep the left-right brain balance!

But how far can they be pushed down as the price of new cars does not increase in relation to time passed? There has to be two parallel markets or how can a 2004 996 GT3 Mk 2 for $150k with 30,000 kms on the clock be worth the same as a 1979 SC with 250,000kms?

Alternatively you could buy a Singer with old school looks and modern mechanicals. If I had a spare $700k I know I would!

A minimum of four issues are published annually. Not for individual sale.

The two cars are obviously appealing to different buyers. The biggest defining difference I can see between them is that the SC has rear seats to transport your young children and very small freinds. The SC was made in massive numbers (59,000) compared to the GT3 (2,313) and this GT3. I think the SC’s are currently overpriced but I guess its saving glory is that it is air cooled and old school. Other than that the GT3 supasses it in all other areas.

president’s message Welcome to the penultimate edition of our Porsche Parade for 2018, this will also be my last contribution as President. It is definitely a busy time of year for the club, and by the time this edition is published we will have had our Annual General Meeting, a new committee, new President and our major event for the year the Porsche Festival held on 21st October. It is indeed time to look to the future. Since our last edition we have run track events at Winton with our Motorkhana and Sprint, and at Sandown and Broadford, Club Nights at Porsche Centre Brighton and Doncaster, eleven Social and Register events, a Driver Training Evening and also a “How to Prepare Your Car” – especially relevant for those entered in the Porsche Festival. Our club relies upon the Social, Register, and Competition sub committees as well as the General Committee. From time to time special committees are established for a particular event, and this year’s Porsche Festival is such an event. I would like to congratulate and thank all those involved in these various committees for the production of a fabulous calendar for 2018. The Porsche Festival subcommittee has worked incredibly hard with many long hours of planning and preparation to bring together a fully booked Festival celebrating our impressive marque, including “Come ‘n’ Park, Show ‘n’ Shine, and Concours”. There will also be on display a number of “Special Cars” as well as invitational displays from the 901 and 356 Clubs. The Porsche Festival has brought our club, the 356 Register and the Type 901 Register together for a fabulous event. To reciprocate the 356 Register has invited us to display up to 10 PCV cars at their Annual 356 Parade day on 24 November. This event is held at Como Park North and is in a high profile location that attracts many people interested in 356s in particular and Porsches in general. This Parade Day also has many cars from the Type 901 Register on display. We would like to see up to 10 PCV cars from the 1990’s onward. This combination of Porsche will showcase Porsches from the beginning to current day, and would be a fitting display in the year of the 70th Anniversary. It would also be a wonderful beginning to combined future displays at the Annual 356 Parade. It is definitely that time of year to record in your diaries our Gala Dinner and Presentation evening. We will be returning to the Grand Hyatt on Saturday 1st December, with some of our now traditional booths, but with new entertainment, and some surprises for all. Along with our motorsport competition winners for 2018 we also have the 2018 Participant of the Year Award, with prizes provided by our long term sponsors. Traction Tyre & Suspension Centre providing first prize, Porsche Cars Australia second prize, and Nillumbik Cellars third. We have been invited to a Phillip Island Track Day on Thursday 1st November. To celebrate their recent certification as a Porsche Certified Collision Centre, Luxury Auto Body has invited Porsche Club Victoria and other Porsche owners to a complimentary gala dinner in San Remo and a track day at Phillip Island on 31 October and 1 November respectively. Note that only current road licences are required for this track day. Please book via www.luxuryautobody. com.au/events, to secure your place.

Perhaps one of the more exciting days in our calendar is Presidents Day. This year’s event will be held at Sandown on 25th November, and it is a great opportunity for everyone in our club to come and enjoy a family friendly day of Racing where passengers are required! Check out the details on our website. I would like to also welcome on board three new advertisers in this magazine. Luxury Auto Body, House of Tint, and George & Co bodyworks, also recently certified as a Porsche Certified Collision Centre. Congratulations on joining us and I trust our readers will support! Our magazine advertisers are critical to the success of this fabulous magazine. Please enjoy this magazine of course… indeed the contributions are our own, but also take a close look at all our advertisers, and support them whenever you can and support those who support us! I reflect on my term as President, and would like to thank the general committee for its support over the last two years. Throughout my involvement with the general committee I have always been impressed by the collective wisdom of the committee. There are always many discussions, decisions, and policies to be developed, some popular some not so, some difficult some straightforward, but all important. More often than not the committee is able to improve the quality of the proposal or decision being addressed. I have never been happier working through difficult issues, in the knowledge that the collective wisdom of our committee has developed, and ultimately improved upon a proposal or decision. It is this very special quality of our committee that makes it so effective. All members of this club can have the utmost confidence that this very professional committee works tirelessly and solely for the benefit of our club. The committee is also fortunate to have the professional skills of highly qualified people in the critically important positions for Secretary, Treasurer, and Editor. Neville Sampson has been our Secretary for the past seven years and has been of critical support to the club, and to the committee whenever there has been a legal or compliance issue to resolve. David Mallinson has been on the committee for the past three years the last two as Treasurer. It is of great comfort that the finances and financial governance of the club is in such capable hands. Ron Widdison a committee member now into his tenth year, our editor and publisher of this astonishing magazine. Ian Knight has now decided to retire from his second term on the committee. Ian’s service to the general committee is now 13 years, and for the past four we have come to reply upon his knowledge of our traditions. I thank Ian for his service, and trust we will continue to enjoy his involvement in this magnificent club. I sincerely trust you are enjoying your involvement in our club, and encourage you to extend your involvement by attending a new event for you. If you haven’t attended a club event yet, or maybe it’s been a while I encourage you to have a look at our events and try something that you may not have tried before – extend your involvement. There are great Social and Register events being held all the time, Track events also – consider volunteering as a Marshal, come along to one of our club nights. Whatever you choose we are looking forward to welcoming you, and your participation, your enjoyment in the company of other club members in our PCV, the best car club in the world.

from race control very resilient group of marshals in the club, who braved the conditions to support our event. At lunchtime we had to bring them into the medical centre to warm up and dry out! I thank each one of them for their efforts under very trying conditions.

The competition year is coming to the pointy end, with just one Competition event, and President’s Day to round out the season. We recently completed events at Sandown (July), Broadford (August), and Phillip Island (September). There are full reports of the last two events later in this magazine. And preparation for 2019 is well under way! In July we visited Sandown for the second time this season in Sprint format (we also use Sandown for the Liqui Moly 360 Regularity Relay). The day brought a crisp Saturday morning – unusual for Porsche Club because we usually run our events on a Sunday – but we ended up with the pick of the weather for the weekend. You will see from the Broadford report that the weather was shocking: cold, windy, rainy and hailing at times. Fortunately, we have a

The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit really is a special track and attracts plenty of interest. In September we hosted six cars from Porsche Club of Queensland, along with five from Porsche Club of South Australia. The PCQ crew undertook a major logistics exercise to bring their cars to Melbourne in a very impressive Racing transporter (including Cup cars which are not road-legal of course). The PCSA representatives repaid the favour for five of our competitors who made the trek over to The Bend Motorsport Park in mid-September (Tailem Bend). It really is a magnificent facility with high quality and extensive infrastructure. Competition is very close in some classes, and the final event may be decisive. Probably the closest are B and D classes, which are standard classes intended for road going vehicles with minor modifications. These classes are very keenly contested. The final event is back at the State Motorcycle Centre at Broadford in October.

Pleasingly, we have now had the maximum number of entrants for Entrée class at the last four events (including Broadford). Entrée class was created for members who want to have a run on a race track without the perceived pressure of competition, and it is great to see this class so popular. Entrée is a genuine stepping stone for drivers to move into Competition with more experience and confidence. The last edition of the magazine included an article about President’s Day, which is at Sandown on Sunday 25 November. If you don’t know what President’s Day is, please have another look at the article. President’s Day really is a special day for the Club, and I hope many of you can make it.

social corner Welcome to the third Social Corner for 2018. Hard to believe 2018 is already drawing to a close, and with the majority of our events for the year now fond memories. We’ve had a number of event highlights throughout the year, starting with the first Club Night at the iconic Station Pier in Melbourne, the Porsche Festival in October, and will conclude with the Gala Dinner Dance in December. None of our events can be brought to us without the ‘behind the scenes’ work conducted by our volunteer members in the Social Committee, who go ‘above and beyond’ to ensure that each event is executed in a very professional and safe manner with attention to detail and service outcome standards that far exceed many other volunteer Club based groups, and even some commercial enterprises. For example I’ll list some of the activities to plan and execute a Social Run; Porsche friendly route planning, route timing checks, check runs which require physically driving the route, write up of Run Notes, selecting suitable lunch venues,

ensuring lunch venue has sufficient facilities ie parking, ensuring lunch menu is competitively priced, choosing meeting location, conducting briefing, finding a suitable CFA, liaising with CFA members for morning tea, redriving/rechecking road conditions for the Run, the list goes on… We are very fortunate to have this high level of professionalism within our Club, so a very big thank you to all Social Committee members of 2018, and all our volunteers. Finally, most importantly I’d also like to thank you for being a member and supporting the events of the Porsche Club of Victoria.

Story & Photos: Porsche Cars Australia

New edition of the Porsche 935 Porsche has unveiled the new 935 on the occasion of the historic ‘Rennsport Reunion’ motorsport event at Laguna Seca Raceway in California. The 515 kW (700 hp) racer, featuring a body reminiscent of the legendary Porsche 935/78, will be produced in a limited number of 77 units. “This spectacular car is a birthday present from Porsche Motorsport to fans all over the world,” said Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars. “Because the car isn’t homologated, engineers and designers didn’t have to follow the usual rules and thus had freedom in the development.” The race car’s technology for clubsport events and private training on racetracks is based on the 911 GT2 RS high-performance sports car. Like its historic predecessor, most of the body has been replaced or supplemented by carbon-fibre composite parts (CFRP). With its streamlined extended rear, the 935 reaches a length of 4.87 metres. The width of the exclusive clubsport racer measures 2.03 metres. The spectacular aerodynamics is a completely new development and pays tribute to the Porsche 935/78 Le Mans race car, which fans dubbed ‘Moby Dick’ due to its elongated shape, massive fairings and white base colour. The distinctive wheel arch air vents on the front fairings, which

also feature on the GT3 Porsche 911 GT3 R customer vehicle, increase downforce at the front axle. Measuring 1,909 millimetres in width by 400 millimetres in depth, the rear wing lends aerodynamic balance. Many details of the exterior are a salute to winning vehicles from the company’s motor racing history: The aerodynamically capped rims echo those of the 935/78, with the LED rear lights on the rear wing endplates adopted from the 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car. The side mirrors hail from the current Le Mans-winning 911 RSR, with the exposed titanium tailpipes modelled on the Porsche 908 from 1968. These references are carried through to the cockpit. The knob on the gearshift lever has a laminated wood design and is reminiscent of racers such as the 917, the 909 Bergspyder and the Carrera GT super sports car. The carbon steering wheel and the colour display behind it have been taken from the 2019-model year 911 GT3 R. A massive safety cage combined with a racing bucket seat and a six-point safety harness ensure maximum safety. A second seat for the passenger is available as an optional extra. Air conditioning provides optimal cooling of the interior. The new 935 is powered by a state-ofthe-art 3.8-litre six-cylinder twin-turbo engine, which is largely identical to the

high-performance standard unit mounted in the road-legal 911 GT2 RS. Power is transferred to the rear engine via a seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) with rigid gearbox suspension at the 310-millimetre-wide rear axle. Like in the GT road models of the 911, the driver changes gears via conveniently positioned shift paddles on the steering wheel. Typical of the 911, the weight distribution ensures excellent traction and braking performances. Six-piston aluminium monobloc racing callipers on the front axle in combination with internally ventilated and grooved steel brake discs with a 380-millimeter diameter provide excellent deceleration values at the front axle. The rear axle is fitted with four-piston callipers and 355-millimeter discs. Like the road-legal 911 GT2 RS, the 1,380-kilogram 935 is equipped with PSM (Porsche Stability Management) including traction control as well as an anti-lock braking system (ABS). Thanks to a so-called map switch, these assistance systems can be adjusted separately or switched off completely, depending on the driving situation. The new Porsche 935 can be ordered now from 701,948 Euro plus country-specific VAT. Customers will receive their vehicles from June 2019 at exclusive delivery events.

Club Night at Porsche Centre Brighton Tuesday th July 2018

Porsche Centre Brighton on Nepean Highway was the location for our Club Night on Tuesday 26th June. This being our only opportunity this year to enjoy the surroundings of Porsche Centre Brighton. With some classics on displays, and a number of modern Porsches including a surprise Porsche tightly wrapped under cover, members had a great time reviewing the collection with glass in hand prior to the formal openings the night At 7pm a feature dear to appetites of members was the timely service of food, and with some thought into a newer variety of finger foods members were able to satisfy their need for a snack or two.

PORSCHE PARADE

Following this was our a very warm welcome to members and guest from our Presidents, with the usual introduction to new members, allowing all to hear and see those new to our Club. Club Announcements then followed with updates from Competition – Mark Horton Andrews, Register Runs – Ken Anson, and all things Social from Alex Harmati Our first feature presentation was from the new CEO and PM Group General Manager Robert Gattereder. Robert certainly shared his passion for the Porsche brand with members, and conveyed with enthusiasm to see the brand grow and develop within the PM Group, and included the future development and expansion of Porsche Centre Brighton. Noting Robert’s accent and background connected

well with the Porsche brand. We thank Robert for his stories and insights into the Porsche brand both locally and from overseas. Next it was time to unveil the cover hiding the new celebrity vehicle to the Porsche brand. This time we had the pleasure of hearing from a well known face and name to the Club, Richard Catchlove. Richard firstly spoke how the Porsche brand has evolved over time embracing change with the requirement to develop a very capable and accepted SUV, and how the new generation of this vehicles continued with the ethos of all things great to Porsche vehicles. With the cover released and the vehicle started the audience not only saw for the first time the Cayenne but were able to hear its Porsche DNA.


Formal precision presentations concluded with our new and very welcome advertisers from prestigious Franco Jewellers who are the proud Victorian distributor of REC Watches, providing the details and a product display on the 901 Collection. Noting these watches have a special connection with Porsche as every watch is partly made from salvaged Classic Porsche 911’s, and embracing a design that highlights its connection to this classic car.

The team from Franco jewellers did a great job in presenting the connection between the classic timepiece and Porsche noting the dial is cut directly from salvaged air cooled 911’s allowing the wearer to be connected to a Porsche at all times. Importantly we also understood that no one from REC watches was in the carpark sourcing future dials for their watches…a great watch with visibly unique and identifiable design features to our members.

With formalities completed members then continued to enjoy their surroundings and opportunity to view the Porsche collection from classics to just released, and also closely inspect the 901 colelction from REC watches. With thanks to the hospitality of Porsche Centre Brighton and organisation of the Social Committee another successful PCV Club Night was enjoyed.

Bathurst Regularity Easter 2018

The Challenge of the Mountain – Bathurst – the circuit that all aspiring race drivers love to drive. Every Easter the Mt Panorama circuit at Bathurst hosts a 6 Hour Series Production race and for quite a few years now the Porsche Club of NSW has taken the opportunity to use this weekend to organise a number of regularity sessions as back up events to the 6 Hour. PCNSW have also been good enough to extend an invitation to Porsche Clubs Australia wide to join them; but you need to be on your toes to get your entry in before this popular event books out. This year PCV managed to get 7 entries accepted, with 3 from PCSA and 3 from PCQ. The lucky PCV entrants were, Colin Anderson, Tony Carolan, Ben Faggetter, Rodney Gordon, Peter Harrison, Dennis O’Keefe and Grant Stephenson. Over the years many have made the pilgrimage to the mountain to fulfil their dreams, resulting both in victory and sometimes disappointment. 2018 was definitely a year of mixed emotions for the Porsche Club of Victoria and the other participating clubs involved.

total event. On the strength of their first session performance, PCV nominated Colin Anderson, Grant Stephenson and Tony Carolan as their team. Alas the next session did not go well for Colin. The starter motor went and other issues hindered his next session. Colin packed the car up and was about to go home but the Audi boys worked on the car and got it going again. Sadly Colin was no longer on the team but still got to run and got some good results. Not knowing whether Colin would get running again, the team replaced him with Ben Faggetter. Despite losing Colin’s outstanding first session performance, at the end of the 4 sessions the PCV team still managed first place in the Porsche Club’s challenge and Tony Carolan came in first overall in the individual scoring. The PCNSW guys taking the PCV domination in a very sporting manner. The weekend was not without its bingles and a NSW Porsche club member was taken to hospital for observations after crashing on the top of the

mountain on his last run, but luckily he was OK. The mountain is unforgiving. Overall everybody just enjoyed the opportunity to drive around the iconic Mt. Panorama circuit at speed with their enjoyment being enhanced by the very fine organisation and fabulous weather. We visited the Bathurst motor museum on the Saturday night and enjoyed the cocktail party and the presentation at which the PCV members starred. The weekend was also a great social success with Porsche enthusiasts from 4 States catching up and enjoying the atmosphere of a major race meeting. A good time was had by all. The 6 Hour was run on Sunday after the Porsche regularity sessions had finished and the spectators were not disappointed. Out in front the Sherrin brothers celebrated a remarkable victory in another remarkable Bathurst 6 Hour even after suffering a penalty in the last 40 minutes of the race.

Most people arrived on the Thursday for scrutineering but a few more enthusiastic drivers arrived the day prior, getting up early to present their cars to the eagle eyes of the scrutineers that tirelessly attend these race meetings. The scrutineers and organisers devote their time and experience to several days of helping the smooth and safe progress of the race meeting. The practice run was held on the Friday and the drivers nominated their times. The first session took place that afternoon and the winner of that round was Colin Anderson in his 944 Turbo. After this first of 4 sessions, the PCNSW guys suggested that each State nominate a 3 driver team to compete for a Porsche Club’s Challenge in addition to the individual performance for the ISSUE 3, 2018

Story: Richard Batchelor

Under the spotlight – the Porsche 944 It is Saturday June 13, 1981 and in blazing sunshine 170,000 spectators await the start of the world’s greatest car race, the Le Mans 24 Hours. The 55 cars facing the starter include four factory Porsches. In fact, the fabled Porsche race team was somewhat in disarray. Porsche chief Dr Ernst Fuhrmann had been replaced by Peter Schutz on January 31 and the latter was dismayed to find that the factory only intended to run 924 Carrera GTs at Le Mans. Schutz wanted nothing less than outright victory and directed that two of the previously successful Porsche 936s be taken out of the museum and re-engined with the motor from Porsche’s stillborn Indy car project. Porsche’s other entries at Le Mans in 1981 were a 924 Carrera GT and a new car called the 944LM, to which the organizing club (the ACO) had allotted the prestigious number 1 race number. Clearly Porsche had convinced the ACO that the new car was a very big deal. After a tragic start to the race which saw a marshal and a driver killed in separate crashes, the Jacky Ickx/Derek Bell Porsche 936/81 moved into the lead during the fourth hour. It maintained this lead to the finish, the mechanics never even having to lift the engine cover. The new 944LM was entrusted to 1977 Le Mans winner (in a Porsche 936) Jurgen Barth and 1980 World Rally Champion Walter Rohrl. In the race, they moved steadily through the field to finish a brilliant seventh outright, and first in class, covering 4404.6 kilometres at an average speed

22

PORSCHE PARADE

of 183.6 km/h. The 924 Carrera GT also won its class and finished 11th outright. The other 936/81 finished 12th after a troubled race. With four starters, four finishers, first outright and two other class wins, Peter Schutz’s bold decision to race the old 936 and the new 944LM had been vindicated. Already flat-out re-engineering the 936/81, Norbert Singer’s race team at Porsche developed at very short notice the new race motor for the 944LM, an all-aluminium, turbocharged, fourcylinder 2.5 litre twin-camshaft engine with Bosch electronic fuel injection, producing 420bhp. It was mounted at an angle of 45 degrees to the right and utilised Mitsubishi-patented twin counter rotating balance shafts to reduce the big four’s inherent vibrations. However, a track test in early May had to be curtailed when several of the new motors blew up, so the factory elected to run the car at Le Mans with reduced boost, making about 370bhp. Yet with the latest aero kit the 944LM was still capable of nearly 305km/h on the Mulsanne straight. The 944 was a development of the 924, which traced its origins back to 1972 when VW contracted Porsche to design a sports car using VW-Audi mechanicals. In 1975 Porsche reached agreement with VW to market the car as a Porsche, manufacture being contracted out to Audi. The Porsche 944 was launched only a few weeks after the 1981 Le Mans race. Although based on the 924 and still assembled by Audi, it featured a new Porsche-manufactured aluminium engine, a naturally aspirated single cam 2.5 litre ‘four’ producing 163bhp, incorporating the

944 Turbo twin balance shafts of the prototype and the engine management system. The new 944 used an Audi five speed gearbox as an integral part of the transaxle, with a tubular backbone separating it from the engine, like the 924. The new car had attractively wide bodywork similar to the 924 Carrera GT. Early road testers of the 944 praised the neutral handing of the car, the transaxle giving a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. The 944 range was augmented in late 1985 by the 944 Turbo (initially 220bhp, then in 1988 with 250bhp and ABS brakes) and in 1987 by the twin-cam naturally aspirated 944S, producing 187bhp from 2.5 litres. The 944S2 was launched in 1988 with a torquey, twin cam, 16 valve, naturally aspirated aluminium engine of three litres, putting out 211bhp. This was the largest production four-cylinder engine of its time, underlining the need for the balance shafts, yet was as smooth-running as a ‘six.’ The 944S2, which from the 1990 model year was also ABS equipped as standard, in turn was replaced in 1991 by the sleeker but mechanically similar 968.

944 S2 leads the charge at the PCV Sandown 6 hour The 944 Turbo and 944S2 received lavish reviews. In his book The Ultimate History of Porsche, Stuart Gallagher had this to say about the 944S2: “Boasting a cooling system developed from the TAG Formula One programme, stiffer anti-roll bars, the superb brakes from the 250bhp Turbo and sixteen-inch alloy wheels, the S2 had the ability to match its looks. It was a full second quicker to 100km/h than the eight-valve entrylevel 944, and capable of almost 240km/h. Maybe it couldn’t match the outright pace of the Turbo, but with the chassis revisions and extra capacity, the S2 was a sweeter drive. Many preferred the more linear, gutsy delivery of the big-four, and if that wasn’t enough to convince you, perhaps the (UK) price difference of GBP7000 would.” From 1982 onwards the 944 was appearing in increasing numbers in Porsche Club of Victoria track days, where it would embarrass 911 owners in the corners but fade somewhat on the straights, particularly against the 911 3.2 Carrera. However all that changed with the introduction of the 944 Turbo, especially in its later 250bhp form with big ABS brakes. In the skilled hands of Peter Fitzgerald a 944 Turbo could run with any other production Porsche. He scored many victories in the Australian Porsche Cup race series and won the series outright in 1990, against a strong field of 911 RSR clones and turbos. The 944 in its various iterations has been a mainstay of PCV competition ever since. Ojars Balodis was club champion in a 944 Turbo in 1992 and Ian Jenkins was co-winner of the club championship in 2002. Other early 944 racers included Jan Jinadasa, Cliff Herbison, Doug Growcott, Linley Baxter, Peter Hemphill and the late Cris Camamile.

During the 1980s Peter Hemphill was so impressed with his track day 944 that he purchased a new 944 Turbo for road use. He still owns it. Nigel Watson is another club member who bought a 944 Turbo new. Like Peter’s it is a mint example and Porsche Centre Melbourne borrows it for displays from time to time. 944 Production and Sales Model Produced Worldwide 944 1982-89 113,07 944 Turbo 1985-91 25,245 944S & S2 1987-91 27,007 944S2 cab 1990-91 7,017

Australia 967 188 169 80

At time of writing (early August) the Carsales website is listing nine base model 944s between $15k and $39k, one 944S at $31.9k, two 944S2s at $40k and $43.9k respectively and a 1988 944 Turbo ‘S’ at $99.5k (the previous week a nice looking 1989 944 Turbo sold for $60k). Clearly the booming prices of air-cooled Porsches has turned attention to other models in the Porsche range, and already we are seeing firmer prices of manual 996 Carreras. Similarly, the 944 Turbo has been tipped by collector’s car experts such as Phil Walker of Unique Cars. In fact, the market values of all 944s have been rising, and not just the models sold in smaller numbers. As the sales figures in the above table show, 944s are comparatively uncommon on Australian roads. In an article in The Weekend Australian, July 21-22, John Connolly recommended five cars to “have a whale of a time driving while their value soars”. One of them was the Porsche 944. “You

need to have owned a Porsche before you head off to the big luxury car lot in the sky. Now that doesn’t mean an old Boxster, which are having trouble moving off the lot at $11k. No. Given every other model (forget the 924) is having a big price run, I’d be looking at the often forgotten 944. They are a good-looking, superb handling, bullet-proof daily driver. . . I’d be buying an S, S2 or Turbo. Make sure it’s been properly serviced and Australian delivered. You can pay up to $100k for a great Turbo and from $15k for a base model.” Perhaps Connolly was wrong to dismiss 924s and Boxsters, fine cars both, but it was pleasing to see the long under-rated 944 among his top five tips. They really are great cars. Postscript: The 1981 Le Mans 944 drivers, Jurgen Barth and Walter Rohrl, are maintaining their Porsche links. Barth took part in the 2018 Monte Carlo Rally Historique in a 924 Turbo, while Rohrl remains on the Porsche payroll as a senior test driver. Both men are now aged 71. Peter Schutz could take credit for the strong sales of the 944 and 928 and was also praised as the saviour of the 911. He resigned as CEO in December 1987 and passed away in 2017, aged 87.

944 80’s print AD

PCV member (and Aporschapart founder) Dennis O’Keeffe enhanced the model’s reputation in the mid-1990s by launching the Porsche 944 Challenge race series, for 2.5 litre single cam 944s in non-turbo form. The series continues to flourish today. The continuing popularity of the 944 in PCV events was seen at the Phillip Island sprints in January 2018, where fifteen were entered. However, hard race track use of the 944 has shown the aluminium front suspension control arms are prone to breakage, exacerbated by using larger wheels than standard and sticky race tyres. A common solution is to fit fabricated steel control arms, as used in the 944 Challenge race series, retaining the original mounting points. The PCV has some long-term 944 owners. 944 Turbo print AD

Club Night at Porsche Centre Doncaster Tuesday 21st August 2018

Over 100 members and guests attended our August Club Night, which saw us make our annual visit to the newest Victorian Porsche dealership, Porsche Centre Doncaster at 839 Doncaster Road, Doncaster. The format of our evening followed our usual programme of socialising over finger food and drinks with Social Director - Alex Harmati welcoming members and guests, and calling on new members present to introduce themselves to the meeting, and to advise which particular Porsche model they own. Alex then drew member’s attention (not that they hadn’t already noticed) to the immaculate

PORSCHE PARADE

Mark Donohue Porsche 911 RSR IROC which was taking pride of place in the Porsche Centre Doncaster Showroom. The Continental Orange IROC RSR (chassis 460.0090) is a real crowd-magnet, thanks to its simple, classic Porsche lines, its great colour and doubtlessly the large ‘DONOHUE’ decal on each door. Classic Porsche expert Peter Bowen of Porsche Centre Melbourne has done his best to return 460.0090 as close as possible to its original 1974 spec since Dutton Garage partners George Nakas, Jeff Dutton and Gavin Fernandez, purchased the IROC 911 in the US in 2014.

He then handed the microphone over to Club President - Michael O’Brien, who also welcomed members to the meeting, and then went on to give an overview of what events are coming up in the near future, including a brief overview on the changing of the guard that will occur at the Club’s AGM which is to be held on Tuesday 9th October at Porsche Centre Melbourne. Next to speak was Competition Director - Mark Horton Andrews, who explained where the club championship stood at this point of the club year, while also providing information on our upcoming competition events.


Register Director - Ken Anson followed Mark, and gave a brief presentation on the Registers, also highlighting the raft of upcoming Register Events, which are scheduled between now and the end of the year, a truly impressive list of events organised by the individual Register Captains. Alex then introduced our Guest Speaker for the night, new Porsche Centre Doncaster General Manager Flavio Parletta. Most members would be aware of Flavio, in his previous role as Service Manager at Porsche Centre Melbourne. Flavio spoke of his passion for the marque, (particularly after having recently completed a stint with Mercedes !!) and following a question from the floor, commented that it is also the passion held for the marque by us, PCV Club Members, which helped to enticed him back to the fold. Flavio spoke of his career so far, and of his involvement with the Porsche brand, and invited his updated team of Porsche experts at Porsche Centre Doncaster to join him upfront, where he introduced each member to the meeting, and had each of them speak briefly on their individual roles at the dealership. At the conclusion of Flavio’s presentation he invited members and guests to join him

and his staff at the completion of the night’s presentations for a tour of Doncaster’s “state of the art” service facilities which are situated above the showroom at Doncaster. Social Director – Alex Harmati, thanked Flavio for his presentation, and on behalf of the club, and all those present, thanked Porsche Centre Doncaster for making their facility available to us again for a club night. Club President – Michael O’Brien, then gave a brief overview on the upcoming Porsche Festival which is to be held at Seaworks – Williamstown on Sunday 21st October. and invited Porsche Festival Committee Member (and Life Member) – Will Darvall to the microphone to give the meeting an update on the Festival, Will reminded members that this year marks a significant year for Porsche AG, with the 70th Anniversary of Porsche, and that the club had decided to celebrate this important milestone with members by holding a flagship event, the Porsche Club of Victoria Porsche Festival ‘Celebrating Together’. Will explained that the Festival will showcase our passion for the Porsche brand, and focuses on members proudly displaying their vehicles, within three different levels of participation: Concours, Show ‘n’ Shine, and Come ‘n’ Park. The Concours and Show ‘n’ Shine categories

will be judged with places and prizes awarded according to judging criteria, whilst the Come ‘n’ Park category has provided an opportunity for members to present their vehicles amongst other beauties in the general display area. A separate display area for special cars has also been arranged at the festival, these cars will be very rare, very interesting, perhaps with fascinating history, and be ones that members will enjoy getting to see! Will also asked for volunteers to assist with set up, pack down, judging and marshalling. Editor’s Note: Bookings are now closed for this event with the maximum entry list of 176 cars having been received, so even if you are not entered, why not come down to Williamstown on the 21st October and share in the fun and camaraderie of the day with fellow club members. All PCV members and immediate family will have free entry, with visitors and public being charged a gold coin donation. This brought our club meeting at Porsche Centre Doncaster to a close with members mingling over final drinks, while most took up Flavio’s invitation to visit the Service Centre upstairs. Next Club Night: Tuesday 9th October – AGM & Club Night – Porsche Centre Melbourne

Mark Donohue Porsche 911 RSR IROC Back in 1974 when this Porsche was new, Mark Donohue was at the zenith of his career. He was the reigning Can-Am Champion in the fearsome, 820kW, 12-cylinder Porsche 917-30 he helped develop, had won the Indianapolis 500 in 1972 and had two Trans-Am Championships and a 24 Hours of Daytona victory on his extraordinary CV. But perhaps more relevant was his racing development work on the Porsche Carrera RSR that evolved into the world’s most successful GT car over the following decade. Donohue had first come to grips with a prototype in late 1972 during down-time at Paul Ricard circuit in the south of France while testing the then-new 917-30 Can-Am Porsche. Factory race engineers, already in awe of his development input on their 12-cylinder sports cars, willingly acted on his advice.

that of the road-going RS 3.0, covering regular bolt-on nine-inch front and 11-inch rear Fuchs forged wheels, but a larger, all-fibreglass whaletail replaced the pert and smaller duck-tail fitted at the factory. A stark no-frills interior, with simple plastic pull handles for the doors and deleted door capping’s and glovebox lids to save weight, were similar to the RSR. The 3.0 litre naturally aspirated engines of the IROC cars were tuned to nearly RSR spec and developed 235kW, compared to the 172kW of the basic RS 3.0 and the 250kWplus produced by racing RSRs, while the gearboxes were Type 915 Porsche five-speeds with spaced ratios, rather than the close-ratio cogs employed on the racing versions. Packaged with massive four-piston finned aluminium brakes from the 917 Can-Am sports car, coil-over suspension rather

than the torsion bars used on road going 911s and weighing just 950kg, they were weapons worthy of the combatants. With a million dollars in prize-money up for grabs, there was no shortage of quality participants - and big egos - on the line. Twelve drivers – Bobby Allison, Emerson Fittipaldi, George Follmer, A.J. Foyt, Denny Hulme, Gordon Johncock, Roger McCluskey, David Pearson, Richard Petty, Peter Revson, Bobby Unser and of course, Mark Donohue – all of them major title-holders at the time Cars for each of the four rounds staged at major US racing circuits were selected by a pre-race driver ballot and to jazz the whole show up, the Porsches were painted in bright colours, both for easy driver identification and to make the series more appealing to fans during the advent of colour TV.

At around the same time, Donohue’s boss Roger Penske was toying with an idea to put some of the world’s best drivers into identical racing cars for a series called the International Race of Champions. On Donohue’s recommendation, Penske approached the Porsche factory to build 15 identical 911 Carreras. Porsche at that stage had just announced the new Carrera RS 3.0 as the even more potent road going successor to the legendary Carrera RS 2.7, but was developing the RSR 3.0 racing version, so the project fell nicely into its lap. The 15 unique and identical IROC RSRs built for Penske were a combination of RS and RSR components. Their fat bodywork was based on ISSUE 3, 2018

Mike Vati

Patient PCV members, thanks for waiting. Here at last are the cars in Mike Vati’s garage. Shortly before the story for Issue 1 last year, a storage unit fire damaged many of Mike’s (and other PCV members’) cars. Undaunted, he licked his wounds and recreated another very well chosen and desirable collection. Mike fell in love with Porsches in the 5th grade, after seeing his mate’s father’s 930 Turbo. Who didn’t get blown away, child or adult, when first seeing the car that perhaps has done more than any other to alter the future direction of engines and body styling? He bought his first Porsches in 2003 and joined the PCV in 2004. This action man bought Theo’s class winning ’82 Black 3.0 SC and set about winning M2 himself. Another well known car was his 964 RS, which he loved to bring to competition at PI with a surf board on top, so that he could have a ‘perfect day’ of track time and then catching a few waves! He also competed in WRX Club, ran in the State series racing a 993 Super Cup, ran in the Island Magic 4 times and ran a 2011 GT3 Cup car in the State series. His surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding (a semi-professional competitor, no less) interests have turned into an active wholesale/retail sports business, which he is just spreading interstate. The cars When first sighting the collection, I loved the degree of preparation, which is instantaneously obvious. All vehicles are immaculate. The ’74 Carrera was a rare beast, being the top model of the new big bumper G series cars (which lasted until ’89), running the 210 HP 2.7 with Mechanical FI, which came from the F series small bumper 2.7 RS. (My first Porsche was a ’74 911 S, with the 2.7 and the new K Jetronic injection. It only cost 17 G’s, not the unaffordable 20 G’s of the Carrera!) It was delivered in Qld, later went to NZ, and was bought by Mike from there. It’s great to drive and only shows 61Ks The ’67 LHD Ivory White 912 with 93 K miles replaces a similar burnt ’66. After the 911 was released in ’65 and the 356 ceased production, there was a demand for the 4 cylinder motor to continue in the new 911 body, as there was a financial leap to the 911. With less weight in the tail, it was light and nimble and was produced from ’65- ’69, initially outselling the 911. In ’70 ISSUE 3, 2018

27


the 914 was launched with the 4 cylinder motor, ultimately selling 118,000 world wide until ’76, outselling the 911, although never brought to OZ. The 911 R replica has a ’66 912 body, with all the weight saving details of the rare factory produced cars (22 made, 3 kept and 19 sold to privateers), ultimately weighing in at 820 kg. They were FIA homologated only for prototype racing. They ran a 2 litre 210HP basically 906 racing motor, which Mike reports revving to 9 on the 10K tacho! More details are in the WIYG?article of issue 4 last year. Obviously, it’s the ultimate early 911, with many in the Club.

Mike’s daily driver is a Defender, which we weren’t allowed to leave out! The Defender was the ultimate iteration of the Land Rover, first released in 1948 and finally stopping production after 67 years in early 2016.But wait, there’s more; it’s back with a big V8 in 2018 and many more models to come! For something a little bit different, an immaculate ’81 Harley Shovelhead Custom with S&S motor and gearbox sits gleaming, ready to roll with 130 HP from 110 ci. Next door is a ’71 Honda Z50, neat as the day it was bought. For recently undertaken Historic racing, there is a ’69 Lotus Formula Ford Type 61, owned for 1 year, being 1 of 2 in OZ. Mike’s one of those blokes who’ll always have plenty of projects on the go, come hell or high water, or fires!

Moving forward over 5 decades, there are still 911s, Mike’s latest being a 991 series 2 GT3 CS 2015, a fully optimised ex PCA Brisbane car, with only 23K.

His wife Nikki, who also loves classic Porsches and has let him park a few in the garage over the years.

Also lost in the fire was a 2.4 S and a 2001 997 Cup car, as well as a much loved Ford ’76 John Goss Special (luckily with a desirable chassis, even after destruction.)

How To Prepare Your Car For Show ‘n’ Shine Venue Weltmeister Richmond - Wednesday 12th September

Thirty six club members arrived for another ‘how to’ evening although many told me it was the catering! The pizzas were amazing and all 16 were consumed prior to the workshop. Starting off the evening was a Q & A session by asking the assembled for their concerns/ problems. This approach, for the first time worked well as it encouraged participation. The night was not without plenty of humour and laughter too. Boys will be boys.

Porsche Festival at Seaworks in Williamstown on 21st October. I would like to say thank you those club members who attended and contributed and also Ben and his team at Weltmeister for providing the space for a successful evening.

The purpose of the workshop was to focus on the entry level Show ‘n’ Shine entrants with the aim being to improve the overall standard of preparation. I was reminded that the first of these workshops I ran for PCV members was back in 2004. The areas highlighted were paint, interior including leather cleaning, wheels, engine bay with the emphasis on the approach to fine detailing. It’s more to do with the points to lose rather than the ones you gain. A useful tip in presenting your car for show is to have the wheel centre caps all facing upright. This is achieved by carefully turning the cap, and to do this the cap has two holes. Insert either two small pins or screwdrivers. Unless the caps have been glued on, the caps will easily turn enhancing the overall wheel presentation. The workshop, as in the past was conducted for the benefit of club members entering the event for the first time for the forthcoming PCV ISSUE 3, 2018

Prelude to Spring Run - Provenance Winery, Fyansford

Sunday 26th August

PORSCHE PARADE


ISSUE 3, 2018

PORSCHE PARADE


The spring run became the ‘prelude to spring run’ as both Neil and Phyl Drew, Jennie and myself are heading to Europe in the first week of September. Fortunately, after discussion with Alex and Carly we were able to move the date to August 26th. Many thanks to all who helped in moving the date. I had already made up my mind where I wanted to go for lunch, so with Phyl, Neil and friends we headed off to check this venue out. The location and food was superb, but I nearly choked when they said they needed $180 per head to accommodate us. Back to the drawing board. Fortunately Neil suggested Provenance Winery in Fyansford, and with Truffleduck across the road able to supply the food, the venue was set.

The CFA put on display one of their old fire trucks, and with their team did a great job of directing cars and putting on morning tea. After the presentation of the cheque to the CFA and some final instructions, we headed off. The run from Diggers Rest took us to the west, through Toolern Vale, Myrniong towards Bacchus Marsh. We were the last to leave Diggers Rest CFA so were surprised upon reaching Bacchus Marsh to find a gaggle of Porsche coming towards us from the wrong direction!! Doesn’t always pay to follow the leader.

Alvaro Del Gallo came on board and came up with an idea for the route and also helped with the run notes. He suggested we use the Diggers Rest CFA as a starting point. They had not accommodated the PCV before and were enthusiastic to give it a try. Fortunately for us the weather on the day was fantastic and we had nearly 50 Porsches turn up at the CFA from where the run commenced.

Everybody successfully made their way to Provenance Winery at Fyansford. Drinks were available from the bar and Truffleduck provided a fantastic array of canapes to sample. Some people made comment that they were not happy with the 10% surcharge on drinks on the Sunday. What I will say is that originally we were expected to pay a fee for the use of Provenance Winery on the day, as all the food was brought in by Truffleduck. However, after a chat with the manager at Provenance, Chris Tarranto, he decided to wave the costs. My thanks to Chris. I think the 10% was a small price to pay.

Most people seemed to enjoy this change of procedure, with a late start and the run starting from the CFA. We had several newbies on this run. Lynne and David Russell from Geelong, John and Jill Payne, David Turner (yes there is another one) and his partner Claire on their first social run. My apologies to anyone I might have missed.

Provence Winery was setup in groups of three long tables and after we found our seats, lunch was served. The choice was between a pancetta, ricotta and spinach hasselback chicken breast with potato rosti, roasted tomato, and sherry vinaigrette. The second choice being a pistachio lamb rump, kumera and smoked carrot puree, horseradish

cream and sage and parmesan tuille. I took soundings from around the room and it seems that everyone enjoyed their meal. After the main course the usual announcements were made, Will Darvall said some kind words and we raffled off four bottles of wine. Thanks Neville for paying for these! I hope the winners realise they were all top shelf!!! The sweet consisted of a lemon and lime panna cotta, papaya, mango and pineapple salsa. The acidity of the lemon cut through the previous main course and left a fresh taste in the mouth. A wonderful dessert. After coffee and tea people started to depart. From my point a view the run was a success. Everyone found their way to Provenance Winery and Truffleduck delivered what I believe was exceptional food. We were also able to taste some of Provenance’s award-winning wines, which I for one really enjoyed. Special thanks must go to Margie Hennessy at Truffleduck, great work. Chris Taranto of Provenance Winery for his generosity in the use of the building. My good mates Neil and Alvaro for their support on the day, especially Alvaro who took all the photos. Plus Carly and Lisa who do a myriad of small things that make this club so successful.

PORSCHE PARADE

You would have to say that PCV has been very fortunate with weather at Competition events this year, but Broadford made up for that, as we endured a day of cold winds, rain squalls, hail, and occasional glimpses of sunshine. The Scrutineering team braved the cold, wet morning to arrive first and check every car. Chief Scrutineer and Club President Michael O’Brien was forced to stay home to not make his cold any worse. However, Taz, Rowan, Gordon, Tristan, Troy, Mark and the team soldiered on without him after Rowan had made a very early 5am start, on his birthday, to get the PCV Marshals’ van to the event on time for scrutineering. Cameron Goodyear gave the drivers’ briefing for the first time and did a very thorough job. We welcomed Thomas Baird in his Mazda RX7 Series 1 for his first track event in Entrée class, mentored by his father Rob. There were a few no-shows because of the wet forecast, particularly in Cup, Open and GT classes, and long-time Official Andrew Bonwick was forced to abandon due to injury. Once the day started it became hit-and-miss whether the sessions were dry, wet or very wet! Because of a Track Licence condition, no passing is allowed from the end of the top straight until the start of the main straight. Although this was carefully explained at the drivers briefing, what was not understood was there is no passing allowed even if signaled by a driver in front. Several signaled passes were observed during the first series of runs, with polite requests to ceases and desist following. As usual, the “my Dorian (timing device) is not working” complaint was heard after the first runs of the day. Stalwart Mark Chrzanowski left his Dorian in his race bag after Ben spent 45 minutes fixing a misfire (spark plug #4 was fouled) just to get his car on track. Mark also experienced low fuel surges on his first run, due to his car using a lot more fuel than normal on the drive up the highway, spluttering all the way. Even better, and I won’t embarrass the driver by naming him, was… “yes my Dorian wouldn’t be registering… because it’s still at home on the charger!” The Entrée class group seemed to attract the rain and hail, every time this group took to the track the weather deteriorated rapidly. It did not however deter their enthusiasm or the resolve of their mentors. Later in the afternoon they did manage to enjoy a few laps without rain. Despite the wet conditions most of the day, there were very few off-track excursions. The WAP Motorsport safety team and Ambulance crew were able to keep warm in their vehicles most of the day with no incidents to attend to. Theo did have a spectacular lose between turns 10 and 11, resulting in lots of mud all over the Boxster GTS, but the Officials were very impressed that he managed to get back on the track unassisted, even though he pulled out right in front of another Competitor – I guess the bright red SC barreling towards him was hard to see… One marshal had to leave his post early after getting soaked from the waist down after the first few squalls rolled through. There is almost no protection from the weather on the

flag points up on the hill. After a change of clothes, a hot cup of coffee cheered him up some before he headed home to warm up. Andrew Ingram decided to call an early lunch break to bring the Marshals back for some food and an opportunity to warm up again. Passenger laps were cancelled for safety reasons due to the conditions. After lunch we polled the Marshals to see whether they were willing to spend another few hours out on the exposed, freezing flag points, and they all volunteered to go back to ensure the Competitors could have more track time in the afternoon. They are a tough bunch who should be applauded for their commitment to the Club. Interest waned just before 4pm, after 4 runs for each group, so the event concluded a little early, and everyone headed south for a very welcome hot shower. One driver I talked to late in the afternoon commented that this was his first event at Broadford, but he really enjoyed the track, despite the wet conditions, and that he would certainly be back in future. He really enjoyed the changes in elevation around the narrow, tight, twisty track. So even though it was a tough day for the Competitors, and even more so for the Marshals on the flag points on top of the ridge, it was another successful event for the Club. Fastest time of the day went to Simon Dunn with a 1:03.258 in his final run, just pipping Stefan Wojciechowski, Jamie Lovett and Ben Faggetter, who also recoded 1:03+ lap times in their last runs, which were all good times considering the weather. Thanks again to the volunteer Marshals and officials for enduring horrible conditions to make the event possible, and to the drivers and crews for making it a safe, incident free day.

Driver briefing

ISSUE 3, 2018

49


Most people stayed overnight in nearby Benalla and on Saturday night many of the Marshals and Competitors frequented the “North” Hotel in Nunn Street for dinner, drinks and some story telling. I arrived a little bit late to discover the tables had been overbooked and a not so happy group of Marshals who had booked a table but found that some of our elder statesman members had commandeered it. After several wines (and whines), I joined them for dinner when the next large table become available and had a memorable evening and was moved by both their passion and pride of being marshals for the competition. There was great banter between all and as a club we are extremely lucky we have a core group of people willing to take on these roles. On the Sunday morning we arrived early for 7.30am scrutineering. Despite only being 1-degree Celsius we did receive some comfort once the winter sunshine came through and eventually warming up to 13 degrees. In all we had 66 competitors (including 9 in entrée), as usual the track was in perfect condition and the 5 groups had the morning three sessions on the longer track with three sessions on the shorter track in the afternoon. Once the track warmed up, the morning session saw strong competition on the long track with Joseph Ensabella posting the fastest lap time but on overall points the competition was close between Jamie Lovett and Aaron Ireland, with Jamie ultimately winning out closely followed by Andrew Hall and Simon Baxter. The shorter arguably more testing track once again saw Joseph set the fastest lap time and this time taking first place on points, with Jamie and Aaron coming in second and third. The overall winner of the day on points was Jamie Lovett, followed by Aaron Ireland and Joseph Ensabella in second and third positions respectively. Behind the top three were the two Cup cars of Simon Baxter and Andrew Hall and in sixth place overall was the first of the air-cooled cars ably steered by Ben Faggetter. Overall the day ran like clockwork with no major incidents and everyone enjoying a great day of racing. There were a few smirks when our Clerk of Course experienced a senior’s moment - he searched frantically for the wand to reset the course red lights and after looking everywhere for it finally realised - it was hanging around his neck!

PORSCHE PARADE


So what is correct driver etiquette on a Porsche Club run? Yes, we have to observe all road rules and deal courteously with slower or faster cars but what about the long suffering passengers? Do you take a more aggressive approach and hope your passenger does not mind too much or do you drive to your passenger’s happy pace? You can gauge this for yourself. Nervous patronising laughter, expletives and relationship ending threats or even stony silence usually mean they are not having a great time. If you are feeling particularly empathetic you could imagine yourself in the passenger seat. If you realise you would be stiff with fear then it’s probably time to ease up and then both can enjoy the run. It seems there was a lot of empathy happening on the “Winter Run” judging by the relaxed body language of both the cars and the passengers. Perhaps this was aided by the reasonable start time avoiding early morning grumpiness. At 10.00 we motored out on some interesting roads describing an arc North through

Gisborne and onto little known towns like Bullengarook and places which were little more than place names like Coimadai and then a suburb near Bacchus Marsh called Darley. We called it the road of discovery! The CFA at Ballan pulled out all stops even blocking off the road for our convenience. Here we had time to enjoy another scrumptious CFA morning tea (who needs lunch?) with time to appreciate each other’s cars. The undoubted star was the extraordinary white 959 brought along by Barry and Helen Fitzgerald. How often do you see a 959 and how often do you see one being driven on the road? A real treat and a credit to the Fitzgerald’s for bringing it out for all to appreciate.

Australian landscape. Quite a juxtaposition. We settled in the reception rooms below to enjoy a beautiful lunch and the joie de vivre that is the Porsche Club of Victoria. It seems everyone was a winner, there being 11 participants awarded a bottle of wine including your faithful scribe. The organiser was also a winner as we all thought Kon Gogos had done a wonderful job with the run, the venues and the food. And I think the passengers were also winners enjoying the run as much as the drivers.

It was going to be difficult to top that but the onwards route was brilliant sweeping towards the challenges of the Greendale to Trentham Road after which another arc had us heading through the Macedon ranges to Gisborne and onto Plumpton where we found the windmill proudly towering above the

It was back to Sandown for the second time this season after the very successful Regularity. It was time to switch from consistent (well some of us were consistent!) laps to Sprint mode where we try to put together the magic lap. It was a crispy July Saturday morning to kick off the day, the calendar had been planned well, as the Sunday weather forecast was for rain all day so we had the pick of the weekend for racing. There was a large contingent of cars with every class represented and a few non-Porsches making it for the day. After the drivers briefing a full day of racing awaited, most drivers get their fastest time in the morning sessions so everyone was filled with anticipation to get out there.

Like each motorsport event there was a number of drivers in entree class, this is a great way for novice drivers to get some track experience without the pressure of the clock. I certainly used this class as an introduction to motorsport and circuit racing. If you just want to drive fast without the risk of a fine for breaking the speed limit this is the class you! The results for the day were: In Open Class Jo Ensabella was in a class of his own “literally”; with a time of 1:12.9 he blitzed the field to take out Outright honours – well done Jo! In Cup 6 Class the Baxter’s (Simon and Linley) sharing their 996 Cup Car took out 1st and 3rd respectively, Simon won the class in a lap record time of 1:15.58, that is great driving and will be a lap to beat in the future. Andrew Smith was second in a very respectable time, the reigning “Rookie of the Year” is doing very well this year stepping up from A Class to a Cup Car (no rest for the wicked Andrew!). In Cup 7.1 Class Andrew Hall took out line honours in 1: 15.24 with Greg Muller second just over 3 seconds behind. In M1 Class Nick Karnaros drove his 993 3.6 to finish first in a respectable 1:19.24, he was followed by Ken Eve in second place in his 993 GT2 Replica (only 2 runners in this class). In M2 Class Ben Faggetter was first

Tony Carolan

(again!) in a time of 1:21.97, with Denis Lambrou-Fernando finishing second and Adam Brewer third. With all cars in the top 3 being vastly different – Ben with his 993, Denis with his 911 Lightweight and Adam in his 944 Challenge car, it makes for an interesting class. In GT1 Class Stefan Wojciechowski finished first, with Anthony Bulloch second and Stan Bougadakis third. In GT2 Simon Dunn blitzed again finishing first, Tim Williams (welcome back!) second and Gary Major third. In GT3 Class Jamie Lovett took absolute line honours in lap record time of 1:19.15, now that is skilful driving! Andrew Gott was second and Tony Carolan third. In A1 Class Simon Zettl took out first place in a time of 1:22.78, just beating Theo Mihelakos by 0.2 for second with Gary Yip was in third place. In A2 Class Josef Smith was first in a time of 1:25.28, followed by Juris Briedis second and Daren Jones in third who finished the day sadly prematurely. We hope to see you back soon Darren. In B Class David Cuff took out B class with his Boxster S in a time of 1:24.59, followed by Daniel Reynolds (who dusted off the cobwebs from his 3.2) for second and Richard Catchlove ended the day in third. C Class, which is in my opinion (biased of course) one of the most competitive classes currently at Porsche Club of Victoria, was taken out by Peter Matherson in a time of 1:26.97, second Cameron Goodyear (me of course) only 0.38 behind and third was Grant Stephenson. Look out next round Pete! In D Class the ever-competitive John Kennedy finished in first place in a time of 1:28.94, second was Danny Loypur with third place going to Garry Voges. All in all, it was a great day out at Sandown. Many thanks to all the volunteer Officials and Marshals who enable us to get out on the track each event with relative safety, without all the time you put in we simply won’t able to do what we do – so a big THANKS to you all.

Mid Week Run to the Edge of the Otways Story: Ken Anson Photos: Alvaro De Gallo. Wednesday 19th September 2018

Supervised, censored and corrected by Harriet! Mid Week runs are always great fun. They are usually started well out of town early in the morning, so no traffic, no lights or stop signs, they are less structured than Social or Register Runs, and you can buy as little or as much lunch as you wish. The attendee numbers are often less so you get to talk to most if not all of the attendees, and are usually run in a loose convoy style, but with accompanying run notes just in case, and are always guaranteed to be enjoyable and a lot of fun, even if you do get lost. While we were discussing another event, organiser Michael Bailey reminded me of his Mid Week Run to the “Edge of the Otways” so we were straight onto it. Looking at his detailed run notes which Lisa sent out by email a couple of days before the run, I saw Michael had split it into two sections, an outward bound run of about 100 kms, and a return to Geelong of 97kms, a total driving time of over two hours, and with a lunch break at the Forest Brewery, a venue which has hosted a very successful Club Register event run by James and Margaret Borg, and David Hosking in 2017. Our meeting place was the Inverleigh Bakehouse. As we arrived we saw Jane at the kerb in front of us in her immaculate Sapphire Blue 991 GT3, what a magnificent car. Our mostly track driven 986 Boxster looked pretty ordinary sitting a couple of parks behind, and probably even more so when Alvaro parked his also immaculate, as 62

PORSCHE PARADE

new, grey 1985 Carrera 3.2 behind us. Carlo in his 987 Cayman arrived. His car is yet another Porsche that shares indecently hard track days and daily driving with consummate ease, and still looks great! Pleasantries were exchanged and coffee and pastries consumed in the sunlight as the remainder of the cars arrived in dribs and drabs, one of the last being the formidable but interesting, and also immaculate, late model orange RS of Tony Stephens who parked behind Jane. What could be better than looking at those two orange and blue Porsches parked one behind the other right in front of the Bakehouse as we sat drinking coffee on the veranda? The last couple, Tas and Marlene, were coming all the way from Tynong North, and so had arranged to meet us at Forrest for lunch, and then complete the return leg part of the run with us. More about them later. After Michael’s briefing delivered on the steps of the Bakehouse, our nine cars headed west at a good solid speed, Michael, Jane and Tony maybe a click ahead of the rest of us. Jane was certainly intent on not having to read the run notes, she was right on Michael’s bumper, and then further back Margaret and her friend Alexandra in Margaret’s 996 Carrera, then Tony, and then the rest of us straggling along in some sort of convoy. Turning south onto a narrow and sometimes rough stretch we reached the sleepy township of Beeac, where we passed by Ean and Dorothy McDowell’s Farmers Arms Hotel.

Ean has an interesting collection of unusual and unique cars, mainly Italian, and including a 1926 Type 35 Bugatti replica which is indistinguishable, even by the experts, from the real thing. He also has a rare Stanguellini single seater amongst his other cars. The venue is very popular with all Car Clubs at weekends, and has hosted a couple of booked out events from the Torque Tube Register. It is well worth a visit. Thank you the Torque Tube guys, Angelo and Ivan, for finding this gem and sharing it with us. With Beeac behind us, and travelling on the northern edge of the Great National Otway Park the overhead hanging tree branches left a combination of dry and damp road on both downhill and uphill curves and twisties, and kept the drivers on their toes all the way to Forrest, certainly an interesting piece of road under those conditions. The Forrest Brewery is great. The building was the old closed Forrest General Store, which fell into disrepair and was inhabited by possums and over grown with blackberries when the current owners Matt and Sharon took it over, and reopened it as a micro-Brewery pub with a 600 litre brew house. Bottling and labelling is done by hand, and from the satisfied look on the faces of appreciative members with the 6 beer tasting paddles, the beer is excellent. A very enjoyable special menu of grain fed steak, local flake and chips, homemade gnocchi, or grain fed beef cous cous was lunch for our thirteen attendees. The raffle was run and won by lucky members Carlo Fasolino, David Milne and Alvaro Del Gallo.


A sudden heavy shower had seen John exit the brewery quickly to put up the roof on his very nice 2000 986 Boxster. On return he was more than a little soaked after having some difficulty with the closing, possibly something to do with not having the handbrake on while pressing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;close roofâ&#x20AC;? switch! Thirteen attendees, we should have fifteen, we were two short! Tas and Marlene had not arrived. A quick phone call and we found they were about

half an hour away, somehow having managed to navigate from Tynong North closer towards Apollo Bay than Forrest! About half an hour later they entered with big grins on their faces, matched by our smiles as they ordered lunch. Time was getting on, and most had a long way to go to get home, so we departed Forrest for the 97 kms drive back through to Geelong on totally empty Porsche friendly roads, passing through Murroon, Whoorel, skirting the south

of the Wurdiboluc Reservoir, and then Moriac to Geelong and onto our respective suburbs or towns. From my observations on the day and from the survey reports a great day was had by all. Thank you to Alvaro for taking the photos and to Michael for driving the route twice in the development of this run.

Run to The Home Hotel, Launching Place Story: Mandy Adamson Photos: Neville Sampson Sunday 9th September 2018

The first mid 911 run for spring saw 35 members arrive at the meeting point on the corner of Springvale and Wellington Roads at 9.30. Tucked in the back carpark of McDonald’s were the various mid 911 register cars and non-register cars with the surprise addition of a sleek black McLaren driven by Richard. Our briefing was given by Ken standing behind his modern-day lectern (a rubbish bin) in the back carpark of Maccas! Four new members, David & Maria Di Palma driving a Cayman and Mark & Jessica Watts in a Boxster, introduced themselves and were welcomed to their first run. The normal points were touched on with regards courtesy to road users and the need to follow road rules. It was also pointed out that reading the run notes and not following other cars was an essential element of the run. However not all Porsches are white but apparently a lot of them still follow like sheep! Notes telling us to turn left just after the NO LEFT TURN sign in Upper Beaconsfield saw a parade of cars turn left at the NO LEFT TURN sign! Following the lead car of that group like sheep. Under an overcast sky the run took us from Mulgrave through Rowville to then drive on the edge of Lysterfield Park which is a forested haven amidst the surrounding urban developments. The views coming down towards Pakenham of the rolling hills were appreciated more as the pace was slow due to the lonely horse float acting as a pace car, a group of us were all stuck behind. The drive continued through Nar Nar Goon to Bunyip where we had 2 choices of cafes for 64

PORSCHE PARADE

morning tea. Most chose the Blacksmiths café next to the IGA due mainly to the large carpark available, this had room for our group and served a good hot coffee and a range of cakes. The other café Biddy Martha’s, was just up the hill and had a relaxed atmosphere with a quirky collection of memorabilia. It took a little finding as it had recently moved across the road. After a leisurely break we continued our drive through Labertouche and the rolling hills of Jindivick towards Powelltown. The scenery was varied with majestic tall trees reminding me of the Dandenongs along the way. Powelltown is home to a large sawmill which has processed some of Victoria’s best Mountain Ash Timber for the past 100 years. At one point I thought my navigational skills had let me down as a parade of a dozen Porsches passed us going in the opposite direction! These included some 901s out on a day run. We passed through Yarra Junction a pretty town that sits where the Upper Yarra and Yarra rivers meet. We could see parts of the Lilydale Rail Trail being enjoyed by cyclists and walkers beside the road as we travelled through this region. Our final 30 kilometres took us to our lunch destination, The Home Hotel on the Warburton Highway at Launching Place. “Launching Place” got its name from the spot opposite the Hotel where goods where launched up the river to Yarra Junction and Warburton before the rail line was constructed. This was a beautiful old country pub style hotel with a lot of history, where a mezzanine area of the dining room had

been reserved for our group. The hotel used to be a “Cobb & Co” coach stop on the way to Warburton. The meal was delicious with a choice of chicken or fish followed by a good serving of sticky date pudding or fruit and sorbet, served promptly by the welcoming staff. Raffle time and the winners of the wine were, Graeme Anderson, Harriet Anson, Lois Saber, Lindsay St Baker, Damien Cruickshank and David Skelton. Our thanks go to Ken and Harriet for another excellently organised run.

Run to Growling Frog Golf Course Story & Photos: Angelo Monteleone Sunday 19th August 2018

As a winter’s day in Melbourne, it couldn’t get much worse than this for our morning run to Growling Frog Golf Course. I was so surprised when 11 Porsches and their cold, wet owners showed up for breakfast at La Manna’s green grocer and cafe at Essendon Fields. Clearly someone must have started a rumour that I was paying for everyone’s morning tea or something, as even I was questioning the sanity of doing a run in these miserable conditions. My fears were allayed when the crowd assured me that Torque Tube owners were not too precious and didn’t mind getting their cars wet and dirty. Our start was delayed, when I found Tony Federico under his 911 Targa reconnecting his heater exchange pipes to get hot air in the cabin. I know these 1983 cars were quite analogue but that is ridiculous. With a quick brief in the carpark, it was every man and woman for themselves as we negotiated the Tulla Freeway north bound. Cars rounded up again as we headed into the back of Sunbury desperately trying to get some heat and grip into our tyres. Roads were clear with no floods or big puddles to watch out for, and everyone made it to the venue without incident. Upon arrival, I was surprised to see my friends Nigel Watson and Kon Gogos causally having 66

PORSCHE PARADE

breakfast. I’m sure that I didn’t take a wrong turn, which is usually mandatory on a Torque Tube run, and they certainly didn’t pass me in these conditions so I happily named their table “The Cheaters Table” on account they took the path of least resistance and shortest google map suggestion. The turnout of ladies attending was my biggest surprise with Mandy, Hermina, Filomena, Elisa, Stefania and Carol Wilson joining with their respective partners which was really nice given the miserable elements.

Ladies Golf day

Growling Frog do a great breakfast and the staff looked after our group with prompt service, great coffee and the heaters turned up all the way. We spent the rest of the morning watching the kangaroos gathering on the golf greens as there were very few golfers having a tee off. Upon return to the cars we found someone had scrawled the words “this 928 is dirtier than me” which Ivan was very offended by, as he has always claimed himself squeaky clean. Wonder which captain would have done that? Uhmm ….

Run to Oscar’s on the Yarra Story: Carlo Fasolino Photos: Ken Anson Sunday 12th August

This was our second register run for the year, and the morning was dry even if it was a bit chilly. Considering how wet and windy Saturday was this was lucky. The organizer Richard Catchlove had picked the right day. We met at the McDonald’s Mulgrave on the corner of Springvale Road and Wellington Road at 9.15 am for a 9.30 am start. We had 41 participants in 21 lovely Porsches, virtually all Boxster/Caymans of various vintages but we did have two 911s (one of each) for some variety. Richard welcomed us all and outlined the run and reminded us this was a PCV event and behave ourselves, especially observing speed limits in built up areas. Richard also went into some detail that the notes could contain E&O (errors and omissions) so he was not responsible if somebody got lost which proved very prophetic for one car. We welcomed 2 new members, David & Helen Telfer in a 2014 (981) Cayman S, and Peter & Helen Delaney in a 2004 (986) Boxster. Mulgrave to Neerim South We exited onto Wellington Road and we were off heading towards Rowville, then onto Emerald along C413. As we got close to Cardinia Reservoir the traffic thinned out and the road started to get twisty, perfect Porsche roads. 68

PORSCHE PARADE

At Clemantis we turned onto the Belgrave – Gembrook Road and through Emerald onto Gembrook. We have done this road several times on previous runs, but it is still fun and the cold keeping most of the cyclists in bed made it even better. At Gembrook we turned left onto C424 and headed towards Launching Place for some more spirited driving. The weather was still fine but a week of winds had left a lot of debris on the road which added an extra dimension to the driving. This drive through the Kurth Kiln Regional Park was spectacular. Just before Launching Place we turned right into Parkinsons/Milners Road and headed off to Yarra Junction. This was the tricky bit as we were warned “if you get to Launching Place you have gone too far.” I think we all made it successfully. At Yarra Junction we turned right onto C425 and headed to Powelltown and Noojee. The road was more open here as we went past farms till Powelltown, where the forest started again. Next we turned right towards Nayook and then back onto the C425 to Neerim South. Before long we were in Neerim South for our pit stop at Misty’s Café, who had a lovely selection of cakes to go with our beverages. A needed pick me up on such a chilly day.

Neerim South to Warburton After our break we were on the road again retracing our steps back to Yarra Junction, except for a diverting little detour through Noojee along Neerim North – Noojee Road. This was a brilliantly twisty section of road with very little traffic and no cyclists. The storms of the last few days had covered the road with large amounts of debris which meant that our speed was a bit more cautious than usual. Due to the short length of this second run, people left Misty’s in small groups, which probably was for the better, as a conga line through this section could have been challenging. We all made it through, except for one couple who went off exploring, but more about that later. When we got to Noojee we turned left onto C 426 Mt Baw Baw Tourist Road and headed back towards Launching Place. Before long we were back on C 425 and heading towards Powelltown then Yarra Junction. Even though we had already travelled the road an hour earlier, coming from the opposite direction made you feel like you were doing a completely different road. Just before Gladysdale we turned right on Tarrango Road, which we followed until we hit the Warburton Highway at Wesburn. The view driving into Wesburn with Mt Donna Buang in the background was awesome and I wished I could have taken a photo of it.


Before Long we arrived out our destination at Oscar’s on the Yarra in Warburton. Oscar’s on the Yarra Our lunch venue was a lovely hotel/restaurant on the edge of the Yarra River. Lunch consisted off shared platters of salmon & greens, and beef and salad. This was followed by dessert. The food was exceptional with several people remarking on this being one of the best lunches yet. I must congratulate Oscars for the quick food service, the excellent quality of the food, their great venue, and their efforts in looking after the Club. And for also quickly organising meals for the poor couple who arrived late. After lunch we got down to the serious business of drawing the raffle, with Barbara Darvall having the honour of being barrel person. Ken Anson, Stephen Lofthouse, Bryan Langton, Helen Delaney and Greg Burns were the lucky winners of a bottle of wine each, which was noted (jokingly, we hope) as coming at great expense

to PCV. Now for the lost couple. During the speeches it was mentioned that one of our new couples had not arrived at Oscar’s, even though they had been at Misty’s café. Not long after this, as if sensing their names, they walked in. It seems their little unplanned adventure was caused by a few too many impromptu turns. They explained that on the way back at Noojee instead of keeping on the Mt Baw Baw Tourist Road, they turned on to the Loch Valley Road and headed north. They travelled along this road for a while until they came to a fallen tree over the top of the road, which they successfully drove under but was stopping a group of 4WDs going in the opposite. When they asked the cars on the other side if they had seen a group of Porsches passing through and told no, they decided to retrace their steps. Interesting that a Porsche sports car can get around (under) a fallen tree, but a bunch of 4WDs were stuck. I wonder why.

it was time to turn around again. This time they made it to Oscar’s and their long awaited lunch. I hope this little experience doesn’t put them off any future runs. After a wonderful lunch, a few drinks and stimulating conversation it was time to finally go home and enjoy a little more driving. So finally, I would like to thank Richard for organizing such a wonderful drive and great venue for lunch. Also, for making the great sacrifice of doing the run, I hear 3 times beforehand… so he wouldn’t get lost.

When they got back to Noojee and hit the Mt Baw Baw Tourist Road they went left instead of right and headed towards Mt Baw Baw. When they saw snow and decided against a ski trip, they realised

With 10 of the 18 cars in attendance being Turbo’s, the register was handsomely represented. Three 930s, a 993, two 996s, two 997s and two 2018 model GT2RS! We were a sight for the early morning dog-walkers as we streamed onto Wellington Road. Margaret mapped-out some excellent country driving through the back of Harkaway and Officer to start with. Wonderful driving at a relaxed pace with beautiful scenery to make it a thrill for all involved. A couple of sudden lefts and rights and we were onto a short stretch of the Princes Hwy which led us onto Cardinia, Tyabb, Balnarring then Bittern, including a great mix of open and country back- roads. A solid drive of 106kms made for a deserved break. At Remuce Café the Turbo Register made up it’s full compliment of attendees and cars as we met up with Tas & Rod. An hour was allotted for morning tea and even that didn’t seem long enough with groups of people pouring over the GT2RS’s brought along by new members Michael & Cooper and Rod (past member/to be renewed member?). The 930’s generated a lot of interest with Owen & Marylin’s red 930 competing with 70

David & Jill’s red 930 for ‘best presented’. Carol & Dan came along in what would be arguably one of the rarest colour combinations for a 930 – white gold paint work, with red leather & white piping interior…. a special-order car which Carol brought over from Dubai. Then there was the balance of the beautiful range of 911s making up the group. Tony’s stunning black 993 Turbo (out for probably its second run

for the year), a couple of GTS Carreras, a Carrera 4 and a 4S all bookended by Rod and Rada’s gleaming ’85 Carrera and Tas’ Astra! Staff came pouring out of the café to take quick photos as we made our way into the café to place our orders. David had organised an area for us at the café which really did contribute to the conversation and camaraderie of the group. The waiters bringing out scones, toast, coffees &


hot chocolates couldn’t be heard amongst the din when trying to match orders with ‘orderers’. Once refreshed, there was the obligatory group photo, a saga best described as ‘herding cats’, and soon enough the second-leg of the run began. The journey onto the Mornington Peninsula made up a leisurely 60kms or so, but the scenery and the roads were superb – a lovey part of Victoria. In addition to securing our morning tea reservation at Remuce Café, David also organised St Andrews Beach Brewery for lunch…. and carparking! This venue has a variety of seating areas - outdoor and indoor, not least of which are the stables which once housed some of Australia’s best-known racehorses: Naturalism, Doriemus, Tawriffic…

alert the staff that we’d eaten more than enough to prevent them from bringing out more food. The raffle was drawn, with Carol taking home six of St Andrews Beach Brewery’s finest brews in that lovely white gold 930Turbo. A big thank-you to David & Jill Hosking for donating the prize. A most pleasurable way to spend a Sunday. Thank you to all attendees for making this such a success.

….and they brew beer! Our casual lunch was served at intervals. Appetisers, pizzas, sweetpotato fries, chicken, sliders – we actually had to
