president’s message

2019/20

Welcome to the summer and festive season edition of the best car club magazine in Australia. By the time you read this article we will have held our annual Dinner dance and awards night. My congratulations to all the award winners, especially Russell Sturzaker and Gordon Johnstone as joint Club Members of the Year and in the motorsport competition side, Andy Hall as Club Champion and Joseph Ensabella as Outright Champion winner of Don Tryhorn Memorial Award. In mid-October we had a very successful Club night at Porsche Centre Melbourne embodying our Annual General Meeting for the Club along with some interesting motorsport speakers we were also very pleased to have Piero Pellegrini, the PCM General Manager and several of his staff in attendance. At this meeting Ken Anson stood down as Register Director after 5 years of sterling service in this role where he has taken register events to a whole new level. Ken will definitely be a hard act to follow, but we have been lucky to entice Paul Sbrissa, a register captain for several years, with Paul being accepted into the General Committee as Register Director in late November.

Club Night at Porsche Centre Melbourne

of diesel engines which will be eliminated from the Porsche range by next year. Getting to know the other state Porsche Club Presidents was also very beneficial. Although we all run under Club Guidelines issued by Porsche AG, each of the state clubs takes slightly different approaches in certain areas that we can all learn from. The way they conduct their events to magazines to membership fees and to the way they work with their local Porsche dealerships. A group to share systems developments is already being set up and is being lead by Andrew Bonwick from PCV.

“The Taycan is just the start with up to 50% of Porsche unit sales being predicted to be electric within 5 years.”

The combined Australian Porsche Clubs President’s meeting was held at the Porsche Cars Australia Melbourne facility in early October last. The Presidents from every state plus the ACT and the 356 Register all attended. We received very comprehensive briefings on some new Porsche models with the main focus, of course, being on the all electric Taycan which is due to be released in Australia late in 2020. In typical Porsche fashion they have taken their own unique approach to the design of this vehicle to give it a distinct performance flair and despite being a four door vehicle, it is being marketed as a sports car. But Taycan is just the start with up to 50% of Porsche unit sales being predicted to be electric within 5 years. The focus after Taycan will be on the SUV vehicles and I must admit that I am very happy to know that the 911 range is forecast to be predominantly powered by noisier, petrol, internal combustion engines for some time to come. Interestingly, along with the electric push is the decline

As I have previously mentioned we are continuing to develop closer relationships with the 3 Porsche dealers in Melbourne and to explore ways we can mutually support each other. The recent highly successful Club Night at PCM are a great example where we had great involvement from the dealership staff. Similar developments are taking place with Porsche Centre Brighton where the Club is supporting the opening of their extended facility and we are planning a Club night at PCB early in the New Year.

Overall, it’s been another great year for PCV where we continue to go from strength to strength. All the very best to you and your families for a happy and safe Christmas and New Year. Tony Carolan President

from race control This is the final report from Race Control for 2019, at the end of another magnificent year of Club competition. Since the last report there have been three events, the final competition event being the Broadford Sprint in October was followed by the extra Phillip Island Sprint, and President’s Day on 17 November. There are more detailed accounts on Broadford and President’s Day in this edition of Porsche Parade. At President’s Day I acknowledged the presence of former Presidents John Benson (1980-81), Will Darvall (2012), Peter Harrison (2013-14), Andrew Bonwick (2015-16), Michael O’Brien (2017-18) and current President Tony Carolan (2019-). I found out after the event that one of the attendees was David James, whose uncle Roger James was on the Club’s original Steering Committee and was Club President in 1977. President’s Day was a very successful day for our Club. In total 364 passenger were signed in, and a whopping 522 rides were

taken. To the great credit of the drivers and officials there were no major incidents, no participants were sent home, and members shared their passion with family, friends, and other club members. An wonderful initiative of Garry Voges, Phil Cox and Garry Saber was ‘President’s Day Gold Coin donations’ which raised $2,148 for a very worthy cause Challenge - supporting kids with Cancer. 2019 saw our Club run 12 events over Sprint (9), Regularity (1), Passenger-only (1) and Hillclimb (1) formats at five different venues. The year saw a total of 716 entries in competition and 89 in entrée. Delivering a program of that magnitude required the combined efforts of many people and I would like to thank them. Firstly, to all the volunteers who support our Club, sometimes in the most trying of conditions… We have a range of experienced, qualified and dedicated marshals who are also club members and bring their shared passion to the way they approach their task. I acknowledge the marshals, officials, service providers and their partners.

As Competition Director I have enjoyed the support of an active Competition Committee. This group generally meets before every event to review the previous event, plan the upcoming one, and discuss issues. Through engaged and at times robust discussion we have decided some very sensitive issues through the year. I acknowledge Tony Carolan, Peter Harrison, Michael O’Brien, Grant Stephenson, Andrew Bonwick, Simon Dunn, Ian Geekie, Tom Goulopoulos, Andrew Smith, Cameron Goodyear, and Gordon Johnstone for their valued contributions. Lastly, thanks to the competitors and the people who support you. We have had a terrific year with some incredibly strong performances and close competition. These fine performances were acknowledged at the Club’s Gala Dinner Dance and Awards Night in early December. The only thing left to do now is to look forward to the next event at Phillip Island on 19 January 2020! See you at the track! Mark Horton Andrews Competition Director

social corner First things first. I need a new name for this column. Social Corner is a little pedestrian don’t you think? Compared to Ron Widdison’s Horizontally Opposed I think so. Well anyway if you have any great ideas please forward them to me. Talking about new names I am not sure that everyone knows who the people are that are working diligently in the background to bring to you the Club’s wonderful social events. Following is a list in no particular order. Michael Bailey, Russell Sturzaker, Geoff Mould, Kon Gogos, Carly Pasco, Melanie Treloar, Clyde White, Vickie Morris, Alvaro Del Gallo, David Turner, Lisa Gillespie, Alison Belot, Gary Saber, Anna Cook and last but not least our President, Tony Carolan. There is a lot of them doing a lot of amazing work so if you happen to run into any of them take the time for a chat, find out what is going on and give them some feedback and encouragement. We may seem to be a self-congratulatory lot but we form our views about the success of the events from your feedback. And thank you, we have had great feedback and great suggestions so please take the time to respond to the survey

email that all participants receive from Lisa immediately following each event. That way we can help ensure the relevance of the events. How do we work. Well we have regular meetings in the boardroom of Porsche Cars Australia. You can imagine with that many people that the room is pretty full but we also have structure, there being sub-committees for the Annual Awards Night and for the Club Nights. The sub committees have their own regular meetings. Next year we are resourcing to prepare a Social Manual so that our work and methods are documented. We are also improving the review of your survey and general feedback and the logistics of getting equipment and supplies to the various events. Quite a lot to do really! Since the last magazine we have experienced our last club night for the year which commenced with the very professional and efficient AGM followed by excellent presentations from Porsche Centre Melbourne racer Nick McBride and one of the Porsche Track Experience Chief Instructor’s Luke Youlden. Two very different perspectives from opposite ends of the Porsche motorsport spectrum. Once again thanks to Russell and his team for organising another very well received club night.

beautiful lunch location and food and of course beautiful people. As I write this, final detailed preparations are underway by Geoff Mould and his team for our Gala Annual Dinner. This should be a ripper and I am looking forward to the report of this event in the first edition of Porsche Parade in 2020. To see out the year, in mid-December we have a Coffee and Cars run to Hanging Rock organised by Kon Gogos. Please keep your eyes peeled for a plethora of events coming your way in the new year kicking off with a Family Picnic Day in Brighton at Billilla Mansion. Don’t forget to check the website and remember that I need a new name for this column ! Linley Baxter Social Director

Taycan Turbo S “The Taycan links our heritage to the future. It carries forward the success story of our brand – a brand that has fascinated and thrilled people the world over for more than 70 years,” said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, who opened the world premiere in Berlin: “This day marks the start of a new era.” The four-door sports saloon is a unique package, offering typical Porsche performance and connectivity with everyday usability. At the same time, highly advanced production methods and the features of the Taycan are setting new standards in the fields of sustainability and digitalisation. “We promised a true Porsche for the age of electromobility – a fascinating sports car that not only excites in terms of its technology and driving dynamics, but also sparks a passion in people all over the world, just like its legendary predecessors have done. Now we are delivering on this promise,” emphasises Michael Steiner, Member of the Executive Board of Porsche AG – Research and Development. The first models in the new series are the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo. They are at the cutting edge of Porsche E-Performance and are among the most powerful production models that the sports car manufacturer currently has in its product range. Less powerful variants of these all-wheel drive vehicles will follow. By 2022, Porsche will have invested more than six billion euros in electromobility. Performance meets efficiency The flagship Turbo S version of the Taycan can generate up to 560 kW (761 HP) overboost power in combination with Launch Control, and the Taycan Turbo up to 500 kW (680 HP). The Taycan Turbo S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, while the Taycan Turbo completes this sprint in 3.2 seconds. The Turbo S has a range of up to 412 kilometres, and the Turbo a range of up to 450 kilometres (according to WLTP in each case) *. The top speed of both

PORSCHE PARADE

all-wheel-drive models is 260 km/h. The Taycan is the first production vehicle with a system voltage of 800 volts instead of the usual 400 volts for electric cars. This is a particular advantage for Taycan drivers on the road: in just over five minutes, the battery can be recharged using direct current (DC) from the high-power charging network for a range of up to 100 kilometres (according to WLTP)*. The charging time from five to 80 percent SoC (state of charge) is 22.5 minutes* for charging under ideal conditions based on European charging infrastructure, and the maximum charging power (peak) is 270 kW. The overall capacity of the Performance Battery Plus is 93.4 kWh. Taycan drivers can comfortably charge their cars with up to eleven kW of alternating current (AC) at home*. Pure exterior design with Porsche DNA With its clean, puristic design, the Taycan signals the beginning of a new era. At the same time, it retains the unmistakable Porsche design DNA. From the front it looks particularly wide and flat with highly contoured wings. The silhouette is shaped by the sporty roofline sloping downward to the rear. The highly sculpted side sections are also characteristic. The sleek cabin, the drawn-in rear C-pillar and the pronounced shoulders of the wings result in a sharply emphasised rear, typical of the brand. There are also innovative elements such as the glass-effect Porsche logo, which has been integrated into the light bar at the rear. With a drag co-efficient (Cd) value from 0.22^, the aerodynamically optimised basic shape contributes to low energy consumption and thus a longer range. Unique interior design with a wide display screen band The cockpit signals the start of a new era with its clear structure and a completely new architecture. The free-standing, curved instrument cluster forms the highest point on the dashboard.

This places a clear focus on the driver axis. A central, 10.9-inch infotainment display and an optional passenger display are combined to form an integrated glass band in a black-panel look. All user interfaces have been completely newly designed for the Taycan. The number of classic hardware controls such as switches and buttons has been greatly reduced. Instead, control is intelligent and intuitive – using touch operation or the voice control function, which responds to the command “Hey Porsche”. With the Taycan, Porsche offers an entirely leather-free interior for the first time. Interiors made from innovative recycled materials underscore the sustainable concept of the electric sports car. ‘Foot garages’ – recesses in the battery in the rear footwell – ensure sitting comfort in the rear and allow the low vehicle height typical of sports cars. Two luggage compartments are available: the front compartment has a capacity of 81 litres and the rear 366 litres. Innovative drive motors and a two-speed transmission The Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo have two exceptionally efficient electric machines, one on the front axle and one on the rear axle, thus making the cars all-wheel drive. Both the range and the continuous power of the drive benefit from the high efficiency of the permanently excited synchronous machines. The electric machine, transmission and pulse-controlled inverter are each combined into a compact drive module. The modules have the highest power density (kW per litre of package space) of all electric powertrains on the market today. A special feature of the electric motors is the ‘hairpin’ winding of the stator coils. This technology makes it possible to incorporate more copper in the stator, increasing power output and torque while maintaining the same component volume. The two-speed transmission installed on the rear axle is an innovation developed by


Porsche. First gear gives the Taycan even more acceleration from a standing start, while second gear with a long gear ratio ensures high efficiency and equally high power reserves. This also applies at very high speeds. Centrally networked chassis systems Porsche uses a centrally networked control system for the Taycan chassis. The integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control analyses and synchronises all chassis systems in real time. The innovative chassis systems include adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology including PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) electronic damper control, as well as the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) electromechanical roll stabilisation system including Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus). The all-wheel drive control with two electric motors and the recuperation system are unique. At up to 265 kW, the potential recuperation power is significantly higher than that of competitors. Driving tests have shown that approximately 90 percent of everyday braking is performed by the electric machines alone – without the hydraulic wheel brakes being activated. The profile of the different driving modes basically follows the same philosophy as in other Porsche model series. This is supplemented by special settings which enable optimum use of the purely electric drive. Four driving modes are available: ‘Range’, ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Sport Plus’. In addition, individual systems can be configured as required in the ‘Individual’ mode. A world premiere on three continents at the same time The Porsche Taycan’s world premiere took place simultaneously in North America, China and Europe. The event locations are also a synonym for three ways of sustainable energy management: Niagara Falls at the border between the US state of New York and the Canadian province of Ontario representing hydropower, a solar farm in Neuhardenberg near Berlin representing solar power and a wind farm on Pingtan Island, around 150 kilometres from the Chinese city of Fuzhou in the province of Fujian representing wind power. We perceive these natural forces with all our senses in exactly the same way as we experience the impressive power delivery of the first all-electric sports car from Porsche. This one-time triple event was broadcast worldwide via live stream on NewsTV.porsche.com .

could write down some details and history of his cars. He did such a great job that I asked if he would like to do a few more.

This unfortunately was Will’s downfall which began a great friendship and the body of work you see before you for the past ten years.

This issue we celebrate a wonderful friendship and working partnership of ten years and forty Garages!

I knew the club had an enormous collection of cars with many of the 1000 plus membership back then owning more than one car.

It has been a great adventure meeting some interesting members who generously shared their garages and a coffee with us for an afternoon.

It all started back in 2009 when I asked Will and Barb Darvall if I could photograph their cars for a new column I was starting called “What’s in Your Garage?”

I cannot thank Will enough for all his efforts over the years. He sources the cars, makes all the arrangements and writes the stories, leaving me to photograph the cars and do the artwork.

They graciously agreed and we arranged a time for me to come to their house to photograph their cars. I asked Will if he

I would also like to thank all the forty members who have shared their amazing garages with us and the members of the PCV. Thank you

for becoming a member of the WIYG club! If you would like your collection featured in Porsche Parade, simply drop me an email at editor@pcv.com.au. Will and I hope to keep bringing WIYG stories to you in the future and as Will wrote in this edition “Please don’t ever tell us that you love the stories, or we’ll be tempted to keep doing them.” Ron Widdison Editor My favorites: No.26 where I got drive a 991 GT3 RS in Dubai, No.5 - Greg Lovett’s Porsche and Plane Hangar! and No.30 - Craig Rayner’s amazing collection.

No.1 - 2009, where it all began what’s in your garage?

Greg La Manna is “one sick puppy” with a totally sick collection ! Tape your jaw shut and come for a ride! Greg is a relative newby to PCV, having joined briefly in 2000, then dropping out and rejoining when he joined Rob Raymer at RSR in 2008. He is an “infectious car nut”, according to Rob, particularly for Porsches, who apparently ear bashes all his mates until they plead for mercy. Greg is 40, with a wife and 4 kids from 14 to 8. His 2 boys are so “addicted to cars” that he has to plead for them to shut up! He spent his working life until recently in the family wholesale fruit business and now indulges his passion. His infection took hold when he had a ride in the back seat of family friend Alfie Costanzo’s 944 in about 1980 as a preteen. Sadly, he has now entered the incurable stage. What the rodders call totally sick, we call an incredible collection of rare and desirable cars, stored in a you beaut every-bloke-needs-one warehouse, together with a sizeable collection of motorabilia. During a break in the interview, as Greg fielded a phone call (probably about number plates!), Rob affectionately called Greg “one sick puppy”! Moving clockwise from the bottom left corner of the main picture (and all seen in other pics) we see 1. An original Light Yellow 1974 2.7 Carrera from Adelaide, one of 14 Australian delivered cars: all Greg’s Porsches are Australian.

A 1989 Guards Red Widebody Speedster, with 22,000 ks, bought from Sydney. 4.

the famous first 3, which arrived a few years earlier. This Ruby Red delight won Greg the coveted Gold Medal at the 2009 Annual 356 Club Concours at his first attempt, but he is quick to credit others for the preparation. Note the iconic bent screen (no, that’s not a split screen) and the incredible purity and simplicity of design. Ian Henderson owns number 1, after trying to pry it from the owner for many years. That car won the 2008 Concours. 6. A black 1956 356 A “outlaw” with rally set up and a roll cage. Outlaws are modified 356’s, initially shunned, but now recognised as an authentic variant. Some are wild, but Greg’s is basically bumperless. No, it’s not a Carrera quad cam: somebody else put the badge on, but Greg’s not about to take it off! 7. A 1969 Cobra Jet 390 Mach 1 Mustang, red with black hood, a beast in its day, and very rare in Oz. 8. (A white WRX, a mate’s car). 9.A 1966 Shelby GT 350 H, in the black and gold Hertz colours (which go back to 1927, when Hertz started and made their own cars), one of the batch of almost 1000 produced for Hertz, to be sampled by their customers and create great publicity. A renter had to be over 25 and pay a super-premium rate of $17 a day and 17c a mile! It’s incredible that any survived! Shelby made almost 3000 GT 350’s in 1965-6 and real ones are highly prized. The 350 has no reference to the engine, as it was a 289, with 306 HP. When choosing the name, Carroll may have settled on 350, after a frustrating meeting, because it was “about 350 feet from the meeting room to the workshop”. 10. In the centre, a Dark Blue 1996 993 RS Touring, one of 14 Touring and 22 RSCS’s which came in, with only 34,000 ks. 11.

what’s in your garage?

Story: Will Darvall Photos: Ron Widdison

Hangar You want a garage? Has Greg Lovett got a garage for you! With more horse power than 100 Melbourne Cups. Present Porsches

Brought up in suburban Kew, Greg seems to remember something about Mike Herrod, motorbikes and The Boulevard. After completing Electrical Engineering at Melb. University, he quickly tired of indoor work and moved into house renovations, after doing his own. Property development, recycling and strategic sales followed, then land sub-division.

On visiting the “garage”, the synergy and symphony of planes and Porsches seems perfectly natural! Clockwise from the bottom in the main picture and in following photos are: a ’95 993 factory racing GT2, a ’91 964 RS, a ’96 993 Turbo (now GT2 clone) and a ’74 3 litre RS clone.

A country weekender for the family near Mansfield was developed in 1983, with an old house moved from Nagambie, onto a rolling property with a beautiful view to the mountains in the East, seen in the photographs. A permanent move there followed in 2004 and an extension was added to the house in 2007.

The 993 GT2 is one of 110 customer race cars made in ’95- 6 and is 1 of 3 Kremer cars raced at Le Mans in Repsol colours in ’95 and ’96. It also raced in the BPR GT series in Europe. It was imported by Don Tryhorn with an EVO front and other mods, but has been returned to factory standard, with race ECU. It has done 1.38 at PI and 1.26 at Winton.

Porsche History Greg reminded me that the first Porsche he ever looked to buy in 1977 was my 1974 911S black Targa. When he baulked at its modest competition history, he remembers clearly that I looked him in the eye and said “You don’t know much about Porsches, do you?”. He bought a similar Mexico Blue coupe from Alan Hamilton, painted it red, put on flares, added a turbo, joined PCV and went racing. Many other cars followed, mostly highly modified, the sequence being confusing, at least for me. There was a ’72 bodied Ruf Yellow Bird replica, (which subsequently went to Richard Batchelor), a 3.3 Turbo in a ’72 shell with RSR look, and the unforgettable red 934 clone with genuine engine and transmission and 713 HP! I can still see that car circulating at Winton in the early 80’s in a cloud of tyre smoke, shredding a set of P7’s! It subsequently went to Graeme Stockley. There was another white 934 clone, with a 400 HP 3.3 Turbo, which Greg ran in Porsche Cup for 6 years, a 914 with a 3.3 Turbo, also tried in Porsche Cup (too much grunt for the trailing arms). There’s been a 959 clone with a 935 motor, also run in Porsche Cup, a ’96 993 with an RS kit, and a 2001 996 Twin Turbo, plus lots of others!

30

The 964 RS is stock, except for a race seat, cage and modified springs and shockers. It has been campaigned by son Jamie all year in M2, coming second in class and 6th outright. The 993 GT2 clone started life as a Turbo, but in typical Greg style has been converted to RWD with Motec, large turbos and 550 HP. The ’74 RS clone has a ’72 body, running a 3.2 dual ignition mechanical injection motor, with 935 heads and crankcase, built by Andial. Jamie has just completed an engine rebuild, under Greg’s supervision. Oh, there’s also a Honda VFR 800 water cooled V-4 Tourer for that little run down the highway. Planes! Greg has always loved flight and has been flying since he was 20. There are 4 planes shown here, some being rebuilt elsewhere and others on charter, 13 in all. From the left in the main picture are a Skybolt, the white biplane with Porsche colour stripes, an Aeronca, all red, and a Dimona motor glider. In the hangar and supporting Greg and Jamie is a Beechcraft Bonanza.

what’s in your garage?

Any consideration of what’s in Alan Hamilton’s garage must include Alan’s memories of the extraordinary history of the Hamilton family and Porsche in Australia.

From mild mannered accountant to PCV’s “Eddie everywhere” in 8 years, Michael O’Brien has grown an impressive CV and enviable eclectic vehicle collection. DNA testing reveals that Michael has the mobility or “hot wheels” gene, first expressed in primary school, by the building of billy carts with ball bearing wheels (gee, how those wheels would spin, but not corner!). Push bikes were next, with long rides from East Bentleigh, even a 5 day camping trip with a mate. First car was a mighty Morris 1100 (they’re all dead now), which Michael took on long drives. Then there was the Mazda period; a 1300, an RX-7, a 626 and a 929. Next came the company cars, while working at BHP; a VL Commodore, a Magna Executive, Falcon GL wagon and Fairmont Ghia. Thinking outside the square led to an MG RV8, before the Porsche Disease struck.

Norman Hamilton, Alan’s father, left school early, following the premature death of his father. He was interested in all things mechanical, studied at night while working, got a pilot’s licence and eventually became an accountant in the National Bank. He married in 1937 and served in the Air Force during WW2, remaining an air crash investigator after the war. He bought a pump company, which provided pumps for many varied applications, such as high pressure mining. Famously, during a trip to Europe in 1951 to investigate pumps for the Snowy scheme, he was passed by a small unknown sleek silver car, while driving an Oldsmobile through the Grossglockner pass in Austria. He followed the car to the factory and rapidly negotiated on a handshake to become the ANZ Porsche importer, becoming the first importer outside Europe. Apparently, he also became responsible for providing the tooling for the RHD cars!

Michael joined PCV in 2004, the year he bought his immaculate ’95 993 Turbo. He joined the Social Committee in 2005, was deputy Social Director from 2006-8 and Social Director from 2009-12, as well as being Treasurer

Don & Janent with assistant photographer Jack Widdison

This is not yer average collection! Try a Turbo Look 924, a 944, His and Her 928’s, a Cayenne, His and Her old Rollers and a Lotus 27, owned by PCV stalwarts Janet Conheady and Don Ballingall!

from 2011 to the present! The extra work load didn’t bother him, as handling the accounts remained within his comfort zone, whereas the Social role had been a steep learning curve.

They have both been members of the Social Committee for many years, with Janet particularly being proactive and imaginative in conceiving and organising events and then writing articles about them for the magazine! Don usually assists at events and may be the one who tells you that you’ve had enough, when you fall face first into his bar!

After running the Turbo in Entrée a few times, he realized that something less expensive and powerful would be prudent for competition. After meeting Chris Tzanis of Weissach Sport and having a few (or thousands of) words with him, Michael bought and developed Keith Ryding’s ’81 SC for the track. He enjoys being part of Chris’ group of competitors and has rapidly improved over the last few years, to now run in the top third of the very competitive and enjoyable C Class. He has also run at Bathurst twice, with more to come and is “desperate to break 3 minutes”. His favourite track is Sandown, where he won the PCV Regularity in 2010, in one of his first competition outings!

Don’s ka-ching moment as a boy was when he fell in love with the MGA, so he later bought one and started racing, his career lasting from ’78 to about 2002. There was also a Lotus 20; the (Doug) Whiteford Special, built by Harry Firth; a Wrenn 1500 Formula Ford; Formula Vee and Lotus Europa and Esprit. He was Outright CAMS champion for Historics in ’82, winner of the Alan Jones Memorial Trophy for Historics in ’83 and ’84, winner of the Vic State Series for Historics in ’88, VHRR Class Champion in ’96, Class winner in the MGA 20 times at the Geelong Speed Trials and there are over 100 First Place trophies in his cabinet!

Below: Michaels 993 Turbo won the Show N Shine overall award this year

Above: Porsches started arriving in Australia in saleable numbers by the mid-1950s

This irrational love of the MGA led Don to open Ballingall MG Spares in West Heidelberg in ’82, which grew spectacularly, at one stage employing 13 mechanics in the workshop! They built or rebuilt over 200 cars, including many specials. With the passing of the years, that business has contracted, but because of Don’s expertise and his history of VACC pre-purchase inspections, he was invited by Vic Roads to become one of 26 Vehicle Identity Validation inspectors around Victoria, because of the vehicle rebirthing problem and the need to assess repairable write offs for registration. Through this he became linked to Police Forensics and the Organized Motor Vehicle Theft squad. He has many interesting stories to tell! Janet and Don work side by side in both businesses, with Janet now handling most of the MG sales.

Fraser and Ian Ross

Zig at home in his Garage

What’s Carroll Shelby got to do with Porsche? Nothing. However, Ian Ross has corrected that oversight by uniting his special collection of Porsches with some special Shelbys. This remarkable man (not Ian!) started racing as a 29 year old chicken farmer and pilot, rapidly progressing to dominate US road racing and win Le Mans in 1959, only to be forced to stop racing as a 37 year old in 1960, after developing coronary artery cardiac disease. (Believe it or not children, there was no active intervention then, with cardiac surgery, sophisticated investigation and coronary care units still years away). So Shel turned to car design and construction and motor racing management for most of the next 50 years, largely in association with Ford, but also with Chrysler and GM. He was largely responsible for the Cobra, Shelby GT350 & GT500, Ford GT40 and Viper, as well as many other models. After a very full life, which included heart and kidney transplants and formation of a philanthropic foundation to support transplantation, he died at 89 in 2012! Ian joined PCV in ‘78, with his first Porsche being a 2.7 Sportomatic. He progressed to a 930 Turbo, a Kremer 3.3 Turbo, a 928, a 3.2 911 Club car and a 964 Convertible. He started racing in the 90’s at the Marque Sports Winton 6 hour events, in one of the PCM teams, having had an advertising contract with Porsche Cars Australia (as The Ross Partnership) for some years. He competed in PCV events, then progressed to Classic Adelaide, Targa Tas and Rally Tas for some years, finally moving to VHRR Historics, where he currently competes in the Shelby GT 350 in Group Sb

Ian’s son Fraser, now 23, is a fairly new PCV member, but has been racing since he was 16. He started in Historic group N, driving an ex-Jim Richards Mustang (how many ex-JR cars are there?), with the rear of the car now extensively modified following a no-brakes excursion into the wall at Sandown. He has also driven the Group C Falcon, before progressing to Carrera GT3 Cup Challenge. This is the series for the superseded Cup cars, in which Fraser is enjoying his third year, initially in a 997 GT3 Series 1 and now in a Series 2. Fraser came to Carrera Cup via Historics, whereas most others come via Formula Ford. Fraser’s such a long streak, he couldn’t fit into a FF, without having 90%sticking out! As this is written, he is leading the series after winning the first two rounds. The cars Shelby Cobra 427. The history of these cars is legendary. Carroll wanted to put a V8 into the pretty English AC Ace body shell, so sourced the 260 cu Ford and built the first test car in 1962. After rave reviews and early competition success, he went on to produce the 2000 series with the 289 motor. From ‘65-’68 the 427 motor was used in the 3000 series. However, in ‘89, after Shel was sick of everyone else making Cobra replicas, he recommenced production with the 4000 series, with new bodies to the original design and the famous 427. This is one of that series. It “drives like a truck”, but if you have a long straight road....

You can tell if a person is serious about car preparation by the condition of the paint and other items under the guards. I bought a car once, sight unseen, confident that the car would be as described, because I could see the gleaming paint under the front guard. (Well, it was only a $4000 Anglia 105E). Henry Arundel’s car preparation is definitely serious, with meticulous attention to detail in all areas. Yes, you could eat (and perhaps cook) off those oil lines, shown in Ron’s pic.

You will remember when I last wrote about Henry, in the Holler For a Marshal segment 5 years ago. No? Well, he grew up in the AlburyWodonga region, where the family had dairy farms in the Kiewa valley. He joined the bank there, moving to Melbourne and overseas for many years. He became involved in GM and Ford finance in Albury-Wodonga, subsequently moving to Melbourne in the mid- 80’s. For the last 15 years he has been running his own finance broking business with associates.

Curvaceous hips on the Turbo bodied 3.2

He has been a car nut since birth, starting with Holdens, including an XU-1, moving to more MG’s than he cares to remember, becoming a keen MG Club member and crewing at Bathurst. He has driven in a 24 hour regularity at Winton and run his favourite MGB GT in a Grand Prix Rally. Putting away childish things, he bought a Guards Red 1980 3 litre SC in 2003 and joined PCV. He and the car became well known at PCV events, with Henry becoming a keen marshal for many years and team manager for Weissach Sport at several 6 hour races. Subsequently, he had a 944 S2.

Henry and his charming partner Gillian have lived in East Malvern for 10 years, with his 2 and her 3 adult children so far producing 5 grand children. They enjoy travel and each other. Henry has always enjoyed exercise and keeping fit, although he is now “a fair weather bike rider”. His daily driver is a VW Up! (1 litre, 3 cyl, 5 speed manual), having had an R 32 and a Scirocco, after beemers in the past. Gillian is happy with her Golf. The current Porsche stable The vibrant Ascot Green ‘76 Carrera 3 litre is certainly the visual standout. It was sold by John Newell in Sydney and lived all its previous life in NSW, before Henry bought it in Eden. The motor (essentially the 930, without the turbo), with K-jetronic, develops 200 HP, down from the 210 of the mechanically injected 2.7 in the ‘73 RS and the ‘74-5 Carrera. The car sits low and purposeful on optional 7 and 8 x 15’s, with 205/50 and 225/50 tyres. Surprisingly, this gives a much smaller overall diameter than the standard 187/70 and 215/60’s, plus a smaller front diameter. Usually, Porsche has fitted a higher profile front tyre to compensate for the narrower section, until the Boxster and Cayman. This car shows 184 K’s and looks elegant with Cork trim. Amazingly, only 2564 coupes and 1123 Targas were made in ‘76-7, with 487 RHD coupes in ‘76. Compare that with 58,000 of the subsequent SC’s and 76,500 of the 3.2 Carreras! Amazingly, some 911 models slip under the radar and this is

Shelby GT 350. In late August ‘64, Ford asked Shelby to develop a performance version of the recently released Mustang fast back and within a month the first Shelby GT 350 road and race cars were built. In 14

Peter at home with his performance cars.

Tim with his SC at the Nine Auto workshop Tim Rout had posters of a G Series Turbo and Elle McPherson on his bedroom wall as a lad. Realising he could never acquire a genuine McPherson, he pragmatically stuck to dreaming of Porsches. Besides, Mum told him to take Elle down.

Ron got the idea from the UK GT Porsche Magazine and suggested to Barb and I that he’d like to feature our cars in the Spring ‘09 issue, with us writing the words. Then he asked me to join him in doing the stories in perpetuity, which we have been doing, with only one gap since Issue 1 2010.

He bought an ex Californian 912 at University in ‘91, which he kept for 3 years, while studying for Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Arts (in Chinese!) degrees. You all know the next bit; work, company cars, house, marriage, kids, with the dream on the back burner.

Ron studied Graphic Design and pursued photography, taking fashion shots for his mother’s model agency, which led to car photography and wonderful freelance work, travelling all over the place for Wheels, Auto Action, Motor and 4x4 Australia as a staff Motorsport Photographer for ACP Magazines. Along the way, he also gained an Architectural Draughting Diploma. After joining PCV in 2001, he snapped for PP, then edited by Richard Batchelor. Having started Composite Colour in ‘96, Ron progressed from artwork to printing, which he has been doing for PP since early ‘04,

In this Fabulous 40th Anniversary year, Ron and I are celebrating our 23rd (article) of WIYG?

Appropriately, we considered Ron’s cars this time. As I write this, on October the 9th at 4 PM, his Porsche stable consists of a White 964 and Red and White 993s, all with Black interiors, of course. By the time this mag comes out, it could well be quite different, as they were all too-good-to-pass-up and bought in May, to replace a Red 944 Turbo and the White G Series 3.2 CS, which has gone back to England! An agonising pruning may need to take place, to make some garage room for his Golf GTI daily driver and wife Romana’s 2015 Range Rover Sport, the Real Estate agent’s weapon of choice.

finally becoming Editor as well in ‘09. Now, he also designs and prints the PCWA and PCSA Porsche Club mags and prints the PCQld mag! “How did he get into Porsches?”, I hear you ask. Well, he lived in the same block of town houses as Barb in the early 2000’s, heard a burble as her 1985 3.2 Carrera returned from the track, asked her about it and Porsches, ditched his Rex, bought an ‘89 3.2 Carrera in 2001 and joined PCV. He had a steep learning curve with both the brakes, which involved driving over a traffic island, and the tail happy handling, which involved swapping ends, to finish up looking at the on coming traffic. He owned that car until buying an Iris Blue ‘94 993 in 2007. Next came a beautiful Riviera Blue 968CS, previously owned by many Club members, then the ‘88 UK 3.2 CS and the 944 Turbo.

The next bit is also familiar; he lived around the block from Ron, but didn’t know him, saw his cars, dropped in, said hello, Ron gave him a Porsche Parade and they talked about the club, etc. At that time, Tim was checking out a 2002 996 Carrera, which he subsequently bought and which remains his daily driver. While reading the PP, he noted that his friend Andrew Lipman was competing in the Club, joined up and decided to get on the track. He ran the 996 in Entree, but picked up some stone chips, so decided he needed a track car. It is standard, apart from a cold air intake, has 95,000 on the odometer and is set for the long haul, with an oil fed IMS bearing.

Ron arrived at our joint about 5 months ago, to show off the immaculate ‘92 964, with 155K’s, bought after a failed attempt to rekindle his 993 love affair. This one has bigger rear brakes than earlier models, but no air bags, which came in the last year. Produced during the recession from ‘89-’93 and having always been considered as a disappointment between the popular G Series and the voluptuous 993, it is finally being appreciated and appreciating! It has smoother body lines than the G, with rear coil suspension, aircon, ABS, a 3.6 motor with twin plugs and 250 HP, but a G-like interior, switches and wipers, and increased weight. The rare RS is rocketing up the charts here and in England.

Hence the ‘84 944, which looks straight, although a bit scruffy, but “everything else is 2013”; suspension, gearbox, con rods, etc. He ran that in D Class for a couple of seasons, but will sell it, now that “the love of my life” (correction, that is wife Max(ine), then the kids, then the car, then the cat. Phew, that was close!) has come along. That is an ‘80 SC, which has the adored shape from the poster (not Elle), in Arctic Silver, wearing delicious Minilites. It is straight, has a full cage, Wevo shifter, sports suspension and no sunroof. It had spent its life in Geelong, until Tim bought it in early ‘15, to run the year in C Class.

Sir Malcolm Campbell

The World Land Speed Record went from 39 mph (62 kph) in 1898 to 301 mph (485 kph) in 1935. Picture that happening between 1980 and today! The remarkable story of this extraordinary feat is described in Sir Malcolm Campbell’s 1936 book “The Romance of Motor Racing”. Campbell lived from 1885 to 1948, held the Land Speed Record 9 times, the World Water Speed Record 4 times and lived to tell the tale! The book details every aspect of motor racing: the drivers, the tracks, the cars, the engineering and the jaw dropping exploits of the fearless heroes (or fools). An 80 year old time capsule. In the early years, the record alternated between several electric cars, until a steamer lit up the measured mile at 121 mph in 1906, which beat a current petrol car’s best of 110. It was then realised that only petrol engines were practical. Mephistopheles, the famous giant FIAT (restored in recent years), was the first to just beat that record, in 1908. The Great War halted attempts, but provided great advances in large aero engines, so in 1922 an 18 litre 350 hp Sunbeam, driven by Guinness at Brooklands, (the world’s first motor racing track, built in 1907), raised the record to 129 mph. It was the last one set on a track, because of the need to build up speed and slow afterwards. Suitable long wide roads for attempts by these unstable cars didn’t exist, so future attempts were run on wide ocean beach sands, in various parts of the world. Campbell bought that car and took it to Pendine sands, raising the record to 146 mph in 1924. However, the car shed tyres from the wheels and so designs to prevent this happening were developed, as one of the earliest improvements due to racing. He raised the record to 151 mph 18

PORSCHE

in 1925, passing one of the many psychological barriers along this human journey. Henry Seagrave raised this speed to 152 mph in 1926, in another Sunbeam with a supercharged 300 hp 4 litre engine, at Southport sands.

Story: Will Darvall Photos: Ron Widdison

Parry Thomas raised the record to 171 mph later that year at Pendine, in “Babs”, with a 27 litre 400hp engine. Campbell built a new “Blue Bird” (as all his cars were named), which he brought to Pendine in 1927. It sank into the sands after moving off its metal plates, which required the rescue efforts of 60 people! It was a problem at all beach courses, alleviated once the cars were at speed, although drag depended on how wet the sand was! During trials, he was almost lifted out of the cockpit by wind pressure, skidded off course in soft wet sand, hit a post and damaged the car. Drainage channels were cut along the beach. During the later record attempt, he hit a bump, his head went up into the air stream, his goggles were torn away, he could hardly see due to sand and spray, but somehow kept his foot down and completed a two way average of 174 mph. Shortly afterwards Parry Thomas was killed instantly when the chain drive of “Babs” broke during a record attempt, causing a spectacular crash.

There’s good news and bad news. Many experts have correctly advised that certain desirable models of air cooled 911s are wonderful investments, such as the 930 turbo and the varioram 6 speed manual 993S. The bad news is that you’re probably too late. David Hosking has indulged his love of Porsches with well timed purchase of both.

ISSUE 2, 2018

He wanted to join PCV, but was ineligible, so bought a ‘ 79 3.3 Turbo and joined up in ‘95. Not a bad entry level Porsche! He “doesn’t get rid of anything”, so here it is 20 years later, with what we could call an abundance of patina. It features 400 hp, with the help of a K27 turbo and some tricky bits, riding on 964 Cup wheels with that unusual central spoke offset on the rims.

Deano joined the Australian 356 Register in ‘97, becoming one of the select group who are members of both Clubs, and bought a ‘59 B T5, turned into an Outlaw, which is instantly recognisable because of the metal louvres replacing the rear quarter windows and the extraordinary striking paint scheme, which sticks out like dog’s b....! An Outlaw, which can be modified in many ways, was frowned upon by the purists many years ago, but is now accepted as an alternative type of 356. This car has been featured widely in print, including Christophorus.

In 2010, he acquired an Arena Red ’96 varioram 993S with 6 speed manual. S in that model refers only to wide body, whereas varioram refers to the adjustable induction system in the M64/21 engine, which became the last air cooled 911 engine. It shows 125Ks and has a neat patina, appropriate to its 22 year age. We never think of Porsches as ageing, until we do the arithmetic. In 2011, along came a Guards Red ’79 930 turbo, looking pretty tuff with 315/35 17 on 11s rear and 215/45 17 on 8s up front. The exhaust is rather audible through the 100 mm pipe and the muffler is due for a change, as it melts close body work! Odometer shows only 65Ks and the car is David’s favourite drive, with no points for guessing why. The 930 was introduced in ’75, as the world’s first serious turbocharged road car, creating quite a storm with its power (250 hp!), torque, especially when the turbo kicked in after the lag, and its tendency to lose the tail (see previous). To aid the handling, the rear end and wheels were widened and suspension altered, to give a spectacular look that we had never seen, and which still stands out. Gearbox was initially 4 speed, down from the current 5 speed, because Porsche felt

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 24

The cars

Current stable

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

Next car was a ’94 993, ex-Stoupas and Phil Treloar, which has won M2 and now races in M1. It has been extensively improved, with acrylic windows, carbon fibre doors, rear spoiler and bonnet and a big safe roll cage. It has rose joints throughout, with lots of massaging of gearbox, brakes, suspension and other tweaks (such as weights in the nose to control understeer.) Ben Faggeter rebuilt the engine (after 3rd was found instead of 5th), with a GT3 manifold and lots of torque. It is quick in Nick’s hands, having run 1.38 at PI on slicks. It has swallowed a serious amount of money during its life, but may well reward Nick with another Club Championship and M Class victory this year.

Deano Brandi fell in love with Porsches a bit earlier than most of us, before he came here from England as a 10 year old. Like most of us, that love stayed on the back burner for a few decades. Life led to carpentry and a career in building, a period style house built with wife Loretta on a farmlet in outer south east suburban Melbourne, a busy family life, and now an early retirement to indulge the hobbies and take care of the large house and garden.

He has always been a car lover, who enjoys maintaining their appearance, leaving the mechanical side to the mechanics! His first special car was a 1929 Chev, bought in 1990. After retirement, he finally caught the Porsche bug, buying an ’83 911 Cab, which he had from 2007-13, joining PCV about 5 years ago.

When first sighting the collection, I loved the degree of preparation, which is instantaneously obvious. All vehicles are immaculate.

An ’85 G series 3.2 was bought in ’09 and he started racing in ‘10, winning the Rookie award, then winning B Class in ’11. It’s got 87,000 ks and is driven regularly,

as are all his cars. (Watch out fellers, he may go back to B Class next year.)

Drooling readers, you have rushed to WIYG? (as you always do), to savour the incredible variety of Porsches and other marques that our members choose. This is our 10th year, Number 37, and Ron and I have been surprised and always interested by members’ lives and the circumstances surrounding their choices, as in this article.

David had a stellar career as a teacher/ educator, rising to becoming Assistant Principal at a leading Melbourne private school, before launching a second career as Head of a young and developing private school in Queensland, for over a decade. He and wife Jill now live in a slice of perfection on the Mornington peninsula, with its access to sweeping views of Port Phillip bay (and sweeping corners on peninsula roads). The house has a generous 3 car garage, with an electric hoist “which only accommodates Porsches, Ferraris, or Lambos, because of limited ceiling clearance”.

The cars

In 2009, he joined PCV, having bought his first Porsche, an 8,000 ks 997 4S, in 2006, which has been his daily driver for many years since then, shows 109,000 ks now and still looks immaculate.

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.

Nick left school at 15, being the son of hard working migrants, and became an electrician, working for a large company. At 27, he started his own business, worked hard, and has grown a sizeable company, doing electrical contracting and developing and building apartments and warehouses. Around 40, his life changed!

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.

He had had a few Porsches since the ‘80s, but didn’t join PCV until 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.

At Winton raceway in early 2010 two kindly white haired Stewards gently suggested to a hard charging rookie that an improvement in his driving skills would be advantageous to his progress and the continuing health of his fellow competitors. It certainly was! At the end of that year, Nick Karnaros was judged Rookie of the Year (shared with John Swan.) Fast forward to 2016, when, after several Class awards along the way, Nick won both the Club Championship, (based on Class points) and the Outright Championship. Only twice before had that been achieved: by Theo Mihelakos in 2002 (Club shared with Ian Jenkins), and by Matt Stoupas in 2009 (Club shared with Andy Barlow.) Beware Greeks driving fast!

Another incurable case of the Porsche Disease has led Dean Koutsoumidis from a ’71 T to a delectable collection of cars for all seasons and all reasons.

It would be hard to assemble a 3 car collection that better demonstrates Porsche’s roots, branches and successful crop, than that put together by Tom Walstab.

Dean was always a Porsche nut, his first bout of the disease causing him to buy that ’71 2.2 T, purchased in ’93. (Why didn’t he buy it earlier, I thought, until I realized he was born in the same year as the car!).

Tom grew up tinkering with cars, because “if you didn’t fix ‘em, you didn’t drive ‘em”. There was an XY GT look-alike, with a 250 six; an HQ327; an XP convertible with a rebuilt V-8, for 18 years; a WRX; an S2000 Honda; a Monaro CV8 R; a VW Touareg and a VR6 Golf. Working in the printing business as a young man, Tom identified a niche and filled it with his own

2009 issue. It then featured in the Lamanna WIYG? in Autumn 2010. It has only done 36,000 k’s. (The origin of the colour and name Fly Yellow is uncertain, people variously thinking it refers to Ferrari Light Yellow; that is is the colour of the city of Modena crest; that it refers to Studio Fly, set up by ex-Ferrari engineers Caliri and Marmiroli; or that it even refers to the colour of a bee!).

Since then he has had an eclectic collection, with some for keeping and some fleeting, with a penchant for 964’s. There was the ex- Don Tryhorn 964 RS, a 964 RS clone, a 996 Turbo, the ex- Jim Richards 993 Turbo, a recently sold 997 GT3 Cup car, a couple of GT3 CS’s and even a Honda NSX. That car lasted a week, as it didn’t drive like a Porsche and he couldn’t get the power down at Winton. Luckily, the previous owner was missing it and it returned home after a week’s holiday (read boot camp!) with Dean.

company, Pentagon Print Production, in South Melbourne. In his recently built home in the South Eastern suburbs, there is a real you-beaut underground garage, with a turntable, which solves all the problems of using the space and managing to drive in and out forwards.

“Dean’s 4 year old will only go to kinder in an RS, because then he can legally sit in the front, and he also insists that the 2 RS’s sit together in the garage!”

Competition History Dean started with PCV about 10 years ago, mainly in the 964 RS clone (which is still running around in the Club), and occasionally reappears to give his race car a shake down.

The 993 Turbo S is one of 11 brought into Oz, with perhaps only 8 remaining. (What could have happened to the others, I wonder?). It is Forest Green, with Nephrite Green interior and has 44,000 “on the clock.” That’s one of the keepers, all of which have a metal badge on the back bumper.

He had just returned to Holland as a 20 year old , after migrating to Oz with his parents as a 9 year old. He spent 4 years back in Holland, then returned to Oz, starting as a brickie’s labourer on the bottom rung of the construction ladder. That led to bricklaying, building, commercial building and ultimately management of his own Civil Engineering contracting company. Work and life continued, leading to the current blended family of 1 wife,

followed by many Falcons. He is a recent member of PCV, having moved from Tasmania in November, after owning an apartment in Docklands and living there part time for 5 years. A 16 year old grandson cleans the cars every week and he has been well taught! His Porsche desire didn’t come to fruition until 14 years ago, when he bought his first Porsche, an ’87 Venetian Blue Targa (of course), which

were stiffly sprung, but if you see a standard car on the track now, the degree of body roll is astounding. How suspension has changed! The previous owner in the USA was a pilot and used the 911’s front tow hook to retrieve his plane from the hangar; hence the nostalgic transfer on the rear window. Who would have thought that early 2.0 litre flat 6 would grow to 2.2, 2.4, 2.7, 3.0, 3.3, 3.4, 3.6, 3.8 and now 4.0!

He still has a sales brochure of all those ‘74 Porsche models, including the fascinating first Turbo, listing a 0-100 time of 5.5; and the 2.7 Carrera, with the same 210 HP mechanical fuel injected motor as the ’72-3 Carrera RS, in the new ‘impact bumper’ model. His first car was a ’56 Kombi,

Tom’s next Porsche was the 928 GTS, one of 14 sold here in 1995, the last year of production. Tom had always loved the 928 and finally was in a position to get the one he wanted, after a long search. 928’s ran from

he has improved with Turbo brakes, some minor engine mods and SC cams. He still loves driving it, once everything is warmed up and it starts humming along. It shows 158,000 on the clock and has the perfect wear patina for a well used car in very good condition.

He has competed in Targa 4 times, from 2002-5, 3 times in the 964 RS clone and once in a Mk 1 GT3. In 2002-3 he ran in Nations Cup, in an ’01 GT3 CS (before Cup cars), and sponsored Rex Broadbent in that car, in Targa 2003, for a 3rd place. He subsequently sponsored Rex in Classic Adelaide for his memorable 5 wins, until that folded after the 2009 race.

The photogenic 964 RS in (Ferrari) Fly Yellow is much photographed in this mag, being the subject of the road trip to Sydney to pinch it back, and buy other cars, in the Spring 18

His first Porsche was a ‘68 911L, last of the short wheel base cars, which had standard and S versions. Long wheel base versions came along in ‘69, with T, E and S variants. Tom’s car is ex-California, with LHD, which was imported by Spencer Harrison. It is a bit of a hybrid (no, not that sort), with the ‘69-on slight guard flares, replacing the “pure” early

The 2004 GT3 CS, built up to Cup specs, is a recent acquisition and may replace the 997 Cup car for racing.

For his up-coming 40th, Dean decided he needed a little treat, so bought Jim’s 2010 997 GT3 RS, run by him in Targa last year. That is used for country runs, having nice compliant suspension, (according to racer Dean), and shows only 5,000 k’s.

What was your defining Porsche moment, when the arrow struck? For Kees Van Ek, it was when he saw from a bus a white ’74 Police Targa, with fluoro orange graphics on bonnet and sides and blue light sticking up from the end of the windscreen, driven by a policeman wearing an orange helmet and a white leather jacket!

It has adjustable Konis, a 5 speed 901 box and has done 1.55 at Phillip Island. Tom enjoys track days with PCV, with much flatter cornering than standard, shown in the accompanying pic from Bathurst. We used to think that early 911’s

“Who would have thought that early 2.0 litre flat 6 would grow to 2.2, 2.4, 2.7, 3.0, 3.3, 3.4, 3.6, 3.8 and now 4.0!”

The 964 Carrera 2 Cab was one of the last built (Aug ’93) and is definitely a keeper, having been owned for 11 years, and is perfect for a warm evening drive. That shows a massive 86,000 k’s.

Sven, Celia, Seth and Luca

Greg and Robin Humphries have different horses for different courses, from Western Pleasure to Phillip Island. Eh? Read on.

Gary has always loved cars, his first being a ’63 beetle. An EK Holden followed, then a very fast Yamaha 650, Mercs and Beemers. “Married, house, kids” slowed the inevitable progression, but there is currently 2 190SLs, an E Type Series1 roadster and other cars scattered around “having stuff done”. He is currently enjoying his “Porsche phase”, having joined PCV some years ago and taking to the track. First steed was a 996, which had several excursions into the weeds, as he gained experience. He freely admits that he kept the factory nose cone production team in full employment! Subsequently, there has been a couple of GT3s, the ex-Matt Stoupas Super Cup car, and now, the GT3 RSR rocket ship. When Ron and I visited the outer suburban Higgon spread, Janine raised the bar with her hospitality!

Robin soon joined the marshals group, helping to pave the way for other women. She gained the CAMS Club Chief qualification, which enabled her to join the small group of senior

From ’08- ’10 he ran in the GT3 Cup Challenge, which he started with Jon Trende, supported by PCA, following cessation of Carrera Cup. He won in in’08, came second in ’09, came third in ’10, so left while the music was still playing! Since ’12, he has been running in Historic Group Sc, for production Sports Cars from ’70-’77. This is a very popular group for 2.7 and 3 litre Carreras and many PCV members enjoy the close racing. Sven bought the ex- Rex

The motors can be enlarged by 1.5 mm in the bore (which brings this one to 2.8), with free cams, compression ratio, rods and pistons. Sven’s car’s latest dyno figure is 317 HP. Suspension mods are free, within the same construction, ie. torsion bars and hydraulic shockers. Brakes can only be upgraded with pad and fluid change. Gear ratios are free, R rubber is mandated and some lightening is allowed, such as by using plexiglass windows. Sven has been a long term Cairns customer. Ron and I visited Sven, wife Celia and boys, Seth, 7 and Luca, 4, at their delightful expansive retreat in the Dandenongs. Seth was performing endless reps of perfect 180 “handbrake turns” with his radio controlled Z4 on the veranda! Watch out for him in the ARC or WRC in the future!

Proud brothers Tony and Angelo

You can take the boys out of Italy, but you can’t take Italy..... Angelo and Tony Monteleone’s genetic emotional needs for tradition, style and rust are met by their love of Lancias, well balanced by their cerebral choice of cool 944S2 cabrios. What an amazing confluence!

Their parents met and married here, after independently arriving here from Italy in the mid 50’s, in the enriching days of Mediterranean migration. Dad was a shoe designer, who also became a manufacturer. Hence Angelo’s love of spiffy shoes, with the faux ostrich numbers shown here. The family lived in Fitzroy, Carlton, then Coburg.

All the boys’ mates drove Italian cars, usually FIATs and Alfas, but they both liked the Lancia style and rallying pedigree, with the Stratos and 037 Stradale, so chose Beta Coupes as their first cars, with TOHC 2 litre Weber carburettor motors, 5 speed manual, FWD and MacPherson struts all round. Angelo’s first was a ‘77 Series I, beige with a brown vinyl interior and white wheels (byoodiful!), which had a troubled life, finally dying at the hands of a Valiant. The next Series II Coupe, in sparkling silver, also lost a tussle with a tree. The white Series III ‘83, shown here, was lovingly nurtured for 20 years, sold and then bought back for a 2011 restoration.

United Arab Emirates Porsche Club Vice President Shahid A Baloch with his 991 GT3 RS

Shahid picked me up at our hotel in his 991 GT3 RS and we drove back at speed to collect the 993 C4S. I had not driven in a current RS before so the ride through Dubai was a real treat. But it got a whole lot better in a hurry when he handed me the keys to the beast and said follow me! Shahid lives in an apartment with the cars being kept on the 6th floor of a

Is there a better speed than 911 kmph?

parking garage so we headed out to find a location to photograph the beauties. I must say it was a little daunting negotiating the narrow down ramps of the carpark in a wide body RS worth $387K (AUD)! Luckily it was PDK (as they all are) so changing gears in a left hand drive car was one less thing I had to worry about.

In Queensland, he started racing Karts at about 18, moved up to dirt rallying in the State series, and then to flying Cessnas. In Victoria he joined PCV in about ’96, and hopped straight into competition, with a G series update ’68 911E SWB Sporto (eventually a 2.4 manual), which he raced for about 10 years, also running and winning in State Hillclimb Championships under 3l Sports. After selling the 911E, he started hill climbing in an open wheel Piranha, (with a 160 hp GSX 1200 Suzuki motor, weighing 320 kg!), which he also raced with the club at Winton.

The black on black ’92 3.3 Turbo (the only 964 without the M64) has the M30 motor, further developed from the G Series, with 235 kW or 315 hp and sprints to 100 in 4.4 seconds. 3660 were produced. It is in the queue for body restoration, with 113 k on the clock.

The RS has aircon which was set at 17.5 (the minimum) but as a 993 owner I know that Shahid must be feeling it as aircon was never a strong point in any air cooled model.

’81 series 2 Lancia Montecarlo Spyder & 2 litre ’78 Fiat Spider

’86 3.2 Targa

Then he bought his beloved ’88 G Series CS in ’04 and ran that for 10 years in the Club, winning the PCV M2 Class Championship in 2006, and competing in 8 Targa Tas and 3 Classic Adelaide, with several class wins & Gold Plates in both, for running 3 consecutive years within time limits on all stages. (He’s chasing Platinum Plates, for 6 years.)

The gem of the collection is an iridescent blue ’93 3.6 turbo (first produced in ’92), with 265 kW or 355 hp, a blue interior and only showing 88 k. The time of 4.0 seconds to 100 was very fast 23 years ago! Carlo admits his apprehension when driving this car, having once swapped ends in it. Only 1437 were produced. The Turbos had 2WD, even though 4WD standard models were the first made. Perhaps the logic was to satisfy the seat-ofthe-pants purists. When the 993 Turbo went to 4WD, the GT2 similarly remained 2WD.

Besides being VP Shahid also organises all the Club’s drive events thought the mountains and deserts of the seven Emirates.

’78 3.0 Targa

Joining the PCV Committee, he became Assistant Social Director to the flamboyant Ros Poon (Director for 6 years) and then Director in ’99-’00, expanding further on her brilliant ideas. He instituted the “long lunch” runs, weekends away, blindfold driver motorkhanas (with sighted navigator!) and the competition-social weekend in Tassie, staying at Launceston and running at Baskerville and Simmons Plains, while having a whole lot of fun. Of course, this was preRegisters.

Not at home were 2 G series cars; an immaculate black ’86 3.2 Targa, originally from England, and a white ’78 3.0 Targa, which was also English, but came here via NZ.

The undoubted stars are the 964 collection, once unpopular, although a great improvement on the G series. They were designed by Benjamin Dimson (I don’t remember him either), with twin spark M 64 3.6 motors, power steering, rear coils, ABS, 4WD or 2WD, smoother body lines, optional Tiptronic and later airbags. 62,000 were made from ’89-’93.

We find a little desert area not yet built on and get out of the cars to arrange them for the shoot. Its 45 degrees and after arriving from Melbourne’s winter I’m really feeling the heat, so we work quickly to get the shots.

Lancia series 2 Beta Spyder

Becoming sensible mature adults at 40, they both bought 944S2 Cabriolets, Tony leading the way with a Guards Red ‘90, Angelo following with a Black ‘89, both then being tricked up with 996 wheels. The S2 has a 3 litre 4 with 155kW (211 bhp) and only 80 cabrios were delivered in Oz, having been produced from ‘89’91. Renowned for road holding, with the rear transaxle allowing perfect weight distribution, the coupes excel on the track, having terrorised Group D for almost 2 decades, in the hands of Ian Jenkins, Garry Voges and now John Swan.

Interestingly, Carlo’s 4 Italian grandparents all migrated independently to Oz after the First World War and married here, one grandfather starting Perfect Cheese and the other becoming a shoemaker. His father became a clothing manufacturer, an occupation which Carlo has ultimately followed, after studying fashion design and a Commerce degree and working for many years as an accountant. This third generation Italian Australian boy developed his interest in cars from an uncle, who loved and restored vintage cars. He fell in love with a Lime Green Porsche at about 10 and still has the bad replica Porsche badge from that time on his key ring, saved for the day he would get his Porsche! His first car was a ’71 2 litre Alfa Berlina, followed by an Alfa 105 series, which he helped restore, a series 1 Lancia Montecarlo, then a series 2 and an Alfa GTV, until the Porsche dream was realised in 2002, with a 3 litre ’81 Targa.

The 911 Gods must have been shining on me. I checked our flight status and we were cruising into Dubai at 911 kmph for our family holiday. This was an omen that it was going to be a fun WIYG experience!

Unfortunately, Karim had to cancel due to other commitments, but Vice President Shahid Baloch graciously agreed to show me his cars at the last minute.

Angelos Black 1990 944 S2 Cab

They share a series II Beta convertible, called Spyder in Italy (like Porsche, not Spider, like FIAT), which looks like a Targa, with a fold down rear window (got all that?), has been fully restored, wearing brilliant Rosso Corsa 852 paint, with Angelo doing most of the interior trim and seats and writing a restoration column along the way for the Lancia Club magazine. Only 9350 were made, with perhaps 20 remaining in Oz. They were styled by Pininfarina and built by Zagato for Lancia, who has been owned by FIAT since 1969!

Greg has always been a Porsche fan, growing up with posters on his wall. He initially took to the track with the Boxster on a Club drive day at Calder, being coached by Theo Mihelakos (then Club champion and Outright champion in his first coming), which infected him with the competition bug. 5 years ago, he upgraded to a GT3 and improved his skills with further driver training. He happily runs in the lower half of the very competitive Open Class. For the last few years he has also been the GT3, RS and RSR Register Captain.

The 365 referred to cylinder capacity then (so, 365x12), but like many logical numbering systems, it was subsequently hijacked by the marketing department. Design was by Pininfarina and it was well balanced, with a 5 speed transaxle and 4 wheel independent suspension, with coils and wishbones (the legendary previous GTO had a live rear axle). About 1400 were made (estimates vary) from ’68-’73, with 158 RHD Coupes, this one coming from England and being owned by Gary for 10 years.The Daytona name was unofficial and bestowed by the press, supposedly due to a 1, 2, 3 finish

In ’97 Sven decided he’d better get into a Porsche, so bought a good straight ’85 White Carrera 3.2 as a daily driver and joined PCV. Within 6 weeks it was being prepared for his first venture into motorsport, running stock in Group B! Eventually, the car was upgraded to run in M2, then M1. By the end of its competitive life in ‘05, it sported a 3.4 engine, with 964 RS fuel injection and Motec and it and Sven flew. Not many G Series cars have been seen on the grid in Group 1! From ’05- ’07 he raced a 996 GT3, which had been built to race and was then further upgraded by Sven to ’04 Cup Car specs. This was run in the Australian GT Championship, in which was embedded the Porsche Drivers Challenge (ex Porsche Cup). He won the ’06 Endurance Series, of 3x 1 hour races and then won the ’07 PDC.

I coordinated the marshals at that time and worked happily alongside Mark. Remember that PCV had no administrator until Carly was appointed in August ‘04 by Ian Knight and since then we have been spoilt by her and Lisa’s attentive competence. What an incredible amount of work was done by Committee members and other organisers before then! Mark was very involved behind the scenes in website content and design, updating the website, enabling on-line entries and results, transitioning to the Porsche website (the first State Club), uploading photos and stories, running the Market Place and generally doing a lot of unsung work, before Carly and others, such as Our Esteemed Editor, Andrew Bonwick, Felix (stars only need one name) and Lisa, largely took over. I don’t think this has been documented before and Mark deserves great credit and the Club’s thanks.

It now sports a 3.5 stroked SC motor, with 3.4 barrels, twin spark & MFI, putting out over 300 hp at the fly wheel, with coil-over suspension and comprehensive rally mods.

A proud Owen Baker with his collection

The eclectic collection, all immaculate, or on the way 1965 light blue Mustang Convertible, with dealer pack GT option, restored in the US, imported trom California in 2010. For sale soon , so hurry.

He started life as a child, and after training in media and electronics, became a computer programmer, data warehousing consultant, project manager, and does now software and cloud hosting, in his own business.

1967 Lancia Fulvia Zagato Sport, with alloy body, based on the Fulvia Coupe. V4 engine, FWD. Purchased as disassembled project from country NSW, most missing parts acquired, currently being restored. Photo showing desired end result!

First cars were Holdens, with the first interesting vehicle being an ’82 Holden (Isuzu) Gemini 2 dr Country Dealer Team (new to me too), more “normal” cars, an ’81 Alfa Sud TI Quadrifoglio, a ’91 Alfa 75 twin spark, an ’05 Audi B6 S4 cab, then the cars shown here and a mid blue Audi Q5 as the domestic driver.

considerable mechanical work, suspension, stripping and rebuilding. The Fulvia chassis is on a newly purchased rotisserie, separated from the aluminium body and in early stages of restoration.

Owen Baker has followed this useful template, having a surprisingly stable collection of well researched and chosen cars, unlike many collectors who endlessly buy and sell.

Owen’s first Porsche was the ’86 944 Turbo, purchased in ’98, but he didn’t join PCV until 2015. He finds interesting cars, 3 of which came from England and 2 from the US, and spent lots of time during this interview discussing the minutiae of proper trim, wheels, colours, fittings and provenance with Ron. He does

1974 Alfa Spider (Porsche says Spyder), bare metal restoration in 2004. These were made from ’66- ’94, looking almost the same throughout and much loved. Who could forget the heavy later impact bumpers? 1976 Ferrari 308 GTB Pininfarina. One of only about 30 early RHD cars, with dry sump and fibreglass (Veltroresina) bodywork. All later cars were steel and most had wet sump, including all OZ cars. Quad Weber 2.9 V8 motor, with extensive racing history. Imported from the UK after a 2 year search. ISSUE 4, 2017

John Orchard Uptur? Rerovit iiscimus demosam quaspelique niae postotat.

Lovers of Guards Red rejoice, others grin and bear it, all sit down, and enjoy a great collection. Ben Westover is a young man who has only been a PCV member since 2017, but has collected Porsches for many years. It sounds as though his powerful expression of the petrol head gene came from his dad, who is into Austin Healeys, having one with a Ford V8, fitted into a Healey Factory widened body, having previously had a 993 Carrera S.

Growing up, he was a Ford man, with an EA Falcon, an XR6, a BA GT, and others. There was a Nissan 200 SX, utes, a Hilux and now an Amarok VW ute daily driver. First notable car is a ‘67 Cooper S, still in the stable, but not home on this shoot. After falling in love with the G Series as a boy, his first Porsche was a 1980 SC turned into a ‘73 RS clone; he knew where to start shooting!

Eque nonem venda audi omni dolorem is

So to Ben’s current exquisite collection, presented equal to the best condition Ron and I have seen, in our 10th year of WIYG? Paint quality and finish is unsurpassed, doors shut with perfect satisfaction and perfect gaps on perfect rubbers. Too complimentary? You can learn a lot about a car and its life from its doors. Interiors are mostly like new, many helped by low distance travelled. Ben does the car care very thoroughly, with The Healey Factory taking care of paint and Auto Coupe or PCM looking after the mechanicals. They all live pampered lives in the huge basement car park of a gracious late 1800’s home. No driving needed to the factories where you hired space! He pragmatically buys older cars with the renovation completed, to avoid surprises and unseen costs.

Paul Blackie Jolly seasons greetings PCV members and welcome to Issue 40 of WIYG, the first of our 11th year. Yes, WIYG? has missed only one issue of PP in 10 years, starting in Issue 3 2009, when Ron asked me to do an article on the Darvall cars. It has led to a most rewarding productive friendship, the results of which we hope you rush to devour every issue! Please don’t ever tell us that you love the stories, or we’ll be tempted to keep doing them. You know all this; 5 year old boy gets infected as car nut, drives slot cars at 10, later falls in lust with neighbour’s Porsche, Mum buys him a few Dinky toys, in particular, a current 356 and a later 993, until the first Porsche is owned, a 964, in 1999, when he joins the PCV. The growth and maturity of Paul Blackie is well on the way. Lots of competition followed in the 2000’s. Club racing was done for a few years to build experience for circuit and tarmac racing, followed by Porsche Cup in 2001-3, Nations Cup in 2003/4, a few rounds of Carrera Cup Championship in 2003, being stymied by budget problems, and including occasional state series rounds in Marque Sports. Rallying included Mount Buller hill climb; Targa West, coming 2nd in ‘06; East Coast once, coming 2nd; Targa Tas x6; Targa NZ, 3rd in ‘02; multiple Rally Tas; Lake Mountain in 2005, comiong 3rd, etc. Many cars changed hands; a 964 RS replica; GT3 Club Sport, ex Jim Richards Nations Cup car; 2003 Carrera Cup car; 2001 Cup car; 996 Turbo Targa car.

Then Paul altered direction into historic racing. In 2005 he imported a ‘71 Stingray Corvette rolling chassis with an aluminium head 454 LS6 motor (only 188 made) and started developing it. The car runs in Group Sc sports cars, for ‘70-’77 cars, which also includes lots of 911s.

The Porsches in chronological order over 58 years:

Story: Will Darvall Photos: Ron Widdison

A ‘61 356B Aetna blue 1600 Super, with a red interior and 75 hp. Nothing to say; it’s like brand new! An ‘81 3.3 Turbo (needs no more detail for anybody in the car universe) Guards Red, with 300 hp, an unusual light grey woven Berber upholstery and only 25K kms. Third story in a row with one of these, suggesting that many are coveted.

By 2008 it was ready to race and the car, driver and results have been improving for 11 years, so that they currently hold the lap record at Bathurst, Wakefield Park, Sandown and short track Winton. The 454 (as big as 2 3.8 motors!) has about 600 hp and massive torque, revving to 6,500, so that running a lap at Sandown in top gear only drops the lap time 3 sec! It has Power Steering, a Muncie Rock Crusher 4 speed, (with spares), and Paul wrapped up in a very strong cage.

The ‘02 Black unobtrusive 996 Turbo, with only 23 K, is perhaps Paul’s favourite daily car, being only its third owner. It is like new inside, with 6 speed manual, like all his Porsches.

Over the years, Paul has developed a very desirable collection of 5 porsches that have taken his fancy, with no theme, 3 blacks and 2 different greys.

Now for something different, there is an ‘88 944 Turbo S Silver Rose, an England only model in this colour, with striking interior pattern in pink, showing only 71 K. Older Porsches often had striking colours and materials. 944s were famous for their vice-free handling and cornering.

A ‘75 2.7 Black Carrera with 68 K has had a total bare metal chassis and engine resto and looks superb. It was an Oz delivery, with no sun roof, was a track car and has sports seats. ‘75 was the second year of the longest running G series, which went from ‘74 to ‘89, until superceded by the 964. The ‘75 was the last year of the legendary 2.7 mech fi motor, unable to pass consumption and emission rules. This car is a keeper! It was $21,000 when new here; I just couldn’t afford one and bought the $17,000 S!

A 2010 997.2 GT3 RS 3.8 is striking in grey with red and only shows 27 K. It has carbon brakes, a standard roll cage and only came in limited colours, perhaps white, black and grey. Wife Debbie loves it, but the cage and extinguisher get in the way for her feet and bag!

Now to excite some of you, there is the genuine 2 Hands movie car. It started life as a ‘73 lime green Superbird XA 302, repowered with a 351 and painted dark burgundy for the film, to look more sinister when driver

Acko was doing his shady deeds. Bought in 2010, it is a very comfortable country cruiser, but don’t push the cornering! This perfectly presented collection of special cars seems typical of the way Paul does things and finishes things, in his work and play.

Acko wants his car back!

A ‘95 993 RSCS in Black has also had a full resto, after being run by Rusty French in the ‘96 Targa, then Dominic Beninca in the GTP (becoming Nations Cup), winning the GT title in1998. It was bought in about 2004. These limited RSCS models have always been very desirable. 71 Stingray Corvette with 454 LS6 motor

ISSUE 4, 2019

Tuesday 15th October saw another record club night attendance this time for an AGM, with some 237 Members and Guests arriving at the iconic Porsche Centre Melbourne Showroom, for our 2019 Annual General Meeting and Club Night. Our program consisted of the AGM, followed by a buffet dinner, meeting new members, hearing the latest club news, and spending time socialising with fellow club members.

Election of General Committee Members Tony noted that six (6) general Committee members had sought re-election and have been re-nominated, and thanked retiring committee members Michael O’Brien and Ken Anson. Accordingly, the following General Committee members were re-elected:-

With many thanks to the team at Porsche Centre Melbourne, our first presenter for the night, was Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport Carrera Cup Pro Driver - Nick McBride

Melanie Treloar Ron Widdison Garry Saber Cameron Goodyear Clyde White Linley Baxter General Business

First up was the 43rd Annual General Meeting of the Porsche Club of Victoria. With more than a quorum of 25 members being present, PCV President - Tony Carolan declared the meeting open at 6.40 pm, and the minutes of the last Annual General Meeting held on 9th October, 2018 were confirmed and accepted on a show of hands by those present.

The Treasurer - David Mallinson then tabled the Annual Report for the year ended 30th June 2019.

There being no other business notified before the issue of the Notice of Annual General Meeting, the President thanked those present for their attendance, and again thanked Carly Pasco and Lisa Gillespie for their fine contributions to the Club, and with the formal part of the evening now complete Tony closed the Annual General Meeting at 7.04 pm.

MC – Russell Sturzaker then welcomed members to the Club Night, while also acknowledging those Life Members, and Past Presidents present, after which he invited all those New Members present to take to the microphone and introduce themselves along with detailing the car/s that they drive. Russell then gave us a brief run down on our night, and with the formal part of our evening now completed, he invited everyone to enjoy a sumptuous sit down buffet dinner (served from both ends of the showroom), along with a drink or too while catching up with fellow club members, friends and guests ….

The Annual Report (including the reviewed financial statements for the year ending 30 June 2019) were adopted, proposed, seconded and accepted by a clear majority of those present. Election of Office Holders President Tony Carolan then announced that as there was only one nomination for each Office Holder position, and therefore by operation of Rule 52(2), the persons nominated were deemed to be elected. Tony then confirmed the following members as having been elected as Office Holders of the Porsche Club of Victoria for 2019-20. President - Tony Carolan Vice President - Mark Horton Andrews Secretary - Neville Sampson Treasurer - David Mallinson 30

PORSCHE PARADE

Following dinner, Club President - Tony Carolan also welcomed everyone to our October Club Night, acknowledged those Hall of Fame Members present, and spent the next few minutes bringing members up to date with the latest news and coming events, particularly the 2019 End of Year – Gala Dinner Dance and Awards Night to be held on Saturday 7th December at the Sofitel Hotel. Also joining us for our night were staff from Porsche Centre Melbourne, so Tony asked PCM General Manager - Piero Pellegrini, if he would like to stand up and introduce the members of his team who were present with us tonight.

Nick McBride is a 28-year-old Melbourne lawyer, who, back in Nov 2017, joined the Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport Team. Currently running in 4th place in this year’s Championship, Nick shared with us his insight and experiences on what it takes to be a professional race car driver in this day and age, along with and being competitive in this ultimate one make series. Detailed below is some of Nick’s Story ……. A love of driving cars very fast has put this family lawyer in a win-win position. You can’t afford to have negative thoughts when you’re taking a corner at 250 kilometres an hour, says Nick McBride, a family lawyer at Marshall + Dent + Wilmoth when he’s not driving round race tracks at breakneck speeds. “You can’t think that there’s a high chance you’re going to hit the wall and end up in the back of an ambulance.” He has a couple of times – once seriously at Sandown in 2014 when the engine of his car actually detached and he went to hospital with concussion. “You have to block that out and have confidence and clarity that you know exactly what you’re going to do. You have to be at one with the car.” Mr McBride has been at one with cars, of various shapes and sizes, since he was 11 years old. His father got him in to go-karts, “and that was that”, he says. Soon he was competing all around Australia, the only proviso being that he had to achieve good grades at his boarding school before he was allowed time off to race. After school, Mr McBride’s love of driving cars very fast did not abate. He moved to England where he had a season with Formula Ford, and was picked up by a Japanese sponsor for British Formula


3. Suddenly he was propelled into the big time. “It was an amazing experience. I was just 20 and travelling to all the best tracks in the world, I stayed in nice hotels, had a personal trainer, and a chef.”

successful Porsche teams, having won three consecutive Carrera Cup Championships across the 2011, 2012 and 2013 seasons.

The law was also his entree back to life in Australia.

Porsche Centre Melbourne General Manager, Piero Pellegrini, commented on signing McBride that he was excited by Nick’s addition to Porsche Centre Melbourne’s racing outfit. “Nick is a fantastic young man and a sensational race driver, and we warmly welcome him to the Porsche Centre Melbourne family,” said Pellegrini. “Nick encompasses exactly what we look for in a Porsche Centre Melbourne race driver and representative. He is not only an expert behind the wheel of a 911 GT3 Cup race car, but he fits the image of our business; he is an ambitious, well presented young professional both on and off the track.

After graduating in 2013 he took up a position at Marshalls + Dent + Wilmoth as a family lawyer. “What I like about family law is that you are dealing with individuals and every matter is different,” Nick said. “Whether it be a parenting or a property issue, you’re helping people draw a line in the sand and move on with their lives.”

Mc Bride said “I’m really looking forward to joining Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport for the 2018 Carrera Cup season. Having raced against Porsche Centre Melbourne in Carrera Cup for the past four seasons, I know the team and how it operates and I am really excited to now be part of this very successful operation.”

In 2012 Nick was nominated as International Rising Star by the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport, but it was all-consuming too. At 6ft 2ins he was told he had to lose 10 kilos. “I was eating like a rabbit and spending all day in the gym.” Studying law via correspondence with Deakin University was a welcome outlet. “On the days I wasn’t racing or training I’d be in my hotel room studying, it was a good distraction.”

As the only professional classified racer with an outside job, he says he owes a lot to his firm for accommodating his racing career. “They’re really supportive of people working part time – whether for family reasons or to pursue their other interests.”

Our second presenter for the evening was Luke Youlden, one of the Porsche Track Experience Chief Instructors and 2017 Bathurst 1000 Winner.

But even after he’d left behind the epicentre of car racing in Europe, Nick was not finished with racing, and within months he was competing in the V8 Supercar Dunlop Series, in which he was named Rookie of the Year. “I’m really enjoying the racing back here in Australia – it has a more relaxed feel, and I’m allowed to eat normally,” he said, laughing.

Porsche Track Experience & Advanced Driver Training - Luke Youlden

Thanks to PCM also present on the night was the Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport Team’s 911 GT3 Cup Car to view up-close following Nick’s recent Round 7 drive at Bathurst the weekend prior. Nick is currently running in 4th place in this year’s Championship,

Luke’s presentation was on the Porsche Track Experience & Porsche Advanced Driver Training Program, and MC – Russell Sturzaker introduced Luke to the audience by way of covering some of Luke’s very impressive Motor Racing CV ….. Luke first spoke to us about the Porsche Track Experience Program which is conducted at Mt Cotton, in Queensland. Porsche Track Experience Porsche Track Experience has been providing training based on a clear philosophy: You tell us your driving goal, and we ensure that you achieve it.

Car racing is as much mental as physical, he said. “There’s a lot of preparation before you even get to the race-track. I study every part of the track so I know it back to front. I know exactly how fast I’m going to be going around that corner, I know where I’m going to pick up the throttle, and I know exactly where I’m going to brake, after that, it’s all about confidence and clarity of purpose. “That’s what makes you able to take a corner faster than anyone else, and come within millimetres of a wall and know you’ll be able to get around without crashing.” Nick competed successfully in the Australian Carrera Cup Championship for the next three years, (sponsored by Bob Jane T Marts), racking up three wins at the Australian Grand Prix, three wins at Sandown and one at Phillip Island. Then, in November 2017, Nick was invited to join the Porsche Centre Melbourne Motorsport Team, one of Australia’s most

Questions from the floor followed, with Nick covering even more about his Carrera Cup experiences, and after this MC - Russell Sturzaker asked everyone to show their appreciation to Nick for his presentation, and on behalf of the club he also thanked Kate Holcombe – Marketing Manager of PCM for arranging for Nick to speak to us tonight.

“All of our courses comply with the same high standards, so you can confidently choose to participate in our cars” said Luke. Working through the various training levels, you can finesse your driving style step by step, from the basics of vehicle control to professional driving skills. Maximum performance is about more than horsepower and torque alone. To harness raw power, you not only need advanced technology, you also need a solid ISSUE 4, 2019

repertoire of driving techniques. To push the limits, you firstly have to explore your own. All of our programs have the same goal in mind: handing over the reins to you and showing you how to use them. It’s no wonder, therefore, that many of our students have one wish at the end of their training, to do it all again. Choose your fun Choose from a range of one day courses, or you can tailor a course to suit your individual or group requirements. Perhaps you are part of a group of Porsche owners and require advanced tuition. Or perhaps you are looking for a course that will work as the basis for a team-building program for a corporate group. The course could even be the goal of an incentive program. The following course options are available: •Precision - The basics of mastering a vehicle •Precision Plus - How to handle the vehicle and respond correctly in hazardous situations •Performance - Advanced tuition on steering and cornering on a challenging racetrack

We believe the more knowledge owners have of their cars, the more excitement they get out of the experience of driving them. And, importantly, the more safely they will drive. A small amount of learning, in safe driving conditions, can open up a whole new world of experience which the limitations of ordinary driving conditions will never reveal.

Questions from the floor followed where Luke provided us with even more information on these two fantastic Porsche Driver Training opportunities, along with some very interesting stories on some of his experiences as a race car driver over the past 20 or so years ……

Your Porsche is a high performance sports car, built to be driven well. This is a short course in understanding its potential. It has also been devised to help you, as a Porsche driver, react better in both day-to-day situations and emergencies. On each course, we are able to simulate (in safety) the kind of situation which may arise in a crisis – for which you may have had no ‘hands-on’ experience. The courses also tackle the less spectacular, but no less important, day-to-day issues such as throttle control and steering skills. On these very special days, the dynamic potential of your Porsche can be exploited in safety, without the restrictions of normal road conditions, or the worry of other road users. It is a wonderful opportunity to safely explore the potential of your Porsche, under the watchful eye of highly experienced Porsche instructors.

The completion of Luke’s presentation brought us to the end of our night, so PCV Social Director – Linley Baxter then took the floor to thank the following people ….

Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day

Sunday 17th November

34

PORSCHE PARADE


This was a President’s Day with similarities and a difference, The similarities were legion. 364 individuals signed on to take a ride in a Porsche on Sandown Raceway. They took 522 passenger rides. Clearly, one is never enough! The weather was a wee bit damp for the first couple of sessions. This always creates apprehension in the mind of the driver, no one wants to make an error of judgement at turn 1 and be sent home for exploring the kitty litter, though I know one (later to become Club) President who did just that late in the day. Having put the R Compound tyres on my car the first session was difficult to get them warm enough, but too dry for road tyres. The President’s Day gods then smiled, and the sun came out and the road dried off. A classic day. I discussed with a couple of fellow Club members why Presidents Day doesn’t sell out. For me, it is an event I have entered as soon as it opens and when the confirmation comes back, I send off an email to the friends and family and colleagues who I promised a ride to during the year. Yet for a good number of much better and more routine competition drivers than me it is an event they never come to. We didn’t come to any firm conclusions, but did note that the observation that every passenger, especially he first timers are AMAZED at how different the experience is. It is not like going too fast on a road, which is dumb. The expereince for passengers is exhilarating, they are surprised at the actual performance and handling of the cars and they connect with why this is a passion for us, in a safe and fit for purpose environment. You can’t explain to someone what a passenger lap is like. They have to do it. Equally, if you haven’t taken someone around, you will never understand how an 80% lap for us feels like 150% to the passenger. Yes, it is a little slower and more controlled, but it is terrific fun.

What was the ‘difference’ you ask. Apparently, in 1999 we collected for a charity, “Challenge - supporting kids with cancer”. Garry Voges approached the General Committee and they agreed to reintroduce Challenge in the 2019 event, and requested a gold coin donation for each passenger ride. Challenge was introduced at the drivers at the briefing, and it is a compelling story of service to these kids since 1983. Challenge provides a wide variety of experiences including respite holiday accommodation, school holiday programs, trips to sporting and other events and recently welcomed 1,400 families to the Challenge Christmas party. The generosity of the passengers and drivers was such that the Club raised $2,148.30 for Challenge, and I would like to thank Garry Voges, Garry Saber and Phil Cox for this lovely initiative.

End of the sermon. It would be good if we could get another dozen entrants, as it would ease the queues during the day, but if we don’t, it is still one of our most successful and fun track events.

The Last Run to Lake Eildon

Sunday 24th November

Seventy three Porsche club members with their cars gathered together at The Porsche Centre Melbourne at 9am on Sunday 24th November. They were about to head to the centre of Victoria through Yea and then onto Lake Eildon. A short briefing was delivered by the organisers and we were on our way. Not in the order that was planned but we left on time which was the main thing. The line of Porsches all in different shades paraded along the freeway then on through to Whittlesea and up over the great divide and onto Yea. The CFA presented the members with a magnificent morning tea which comprised of freshly cut sandwiches and award winning cakes and sponges. These were elegantly presented with vases of flowers decorating the tables. This was not the first time we had had been entertained by the Yea CFA and history was repeated once again PORSCHE PARADE efforts being outstanding. 38with their

A speech was delivered by Neil Beer, a prominent volunteer who is a retired group officer having been awarded AFSM in the Queens honours in 2018, and is now a supporting member of the Captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peer mentor program. A donation was made on behalf of the members that attended. This was accepted by the captain of the Yea CFA Rod Carbis. The money will be used to help fund a training pad for training vehicle rescue. After indulging in the morning tea the members and guests made their way to Eildon through the front road then across the dam wall. The cars made their way up the windy road over the hill entering the Eildon Boat Club. The weather was quite magical. The sky was blue and everyone enjoyed the sunshine. The PCV members were served a magnificent 2 course lunch overlooking the waters of the lake. Members made new friends and caught up with old ones.

I thank the people that helped me with the event: - Linley Baxter and Russell Sturzaker for their assistance. - Neil Beer and the CFA for their organisation of a very special morning tea. - The Eildon Boat Club for presenting the Porsche Club with a delicious lunch. I also thank all the PCV members that attended and I really hope you all enjoyed the event.

The only real issue for me on this occasion was being approached by Mark Horton Andrews prior to signing on and wondering what on earth I had possibly done wrong? Expecting a black flag already I was surprised to be asked to write this article about the day out. An honour and a stress at the same time. I will be certain to keep a low profile in the future and let that be a warning to everyone else too.

Winter at Sandown this July turned out to be a fantastic day. The Committee at Porsche Club Victoria really know how to make the weather shine and boy did they turn it on this time. It was a mild Winters day with stacks of sun and very little wind and absolutely no rain.

PORSCHE PARADE

Having arrived at 8am most of the member drivers had been through the sign-on and scrutineer process already, leaving the scrutineers shed clear for Tas to grill me and my car as usual. Thanks to Tas the crew, your efforts are always greatly appreciated. It’s always great to see all the different and fantastic models and colours on arrival at any race meet. We saw an approximate turnout of 60 cars. On this occasion the Baxter boys Cup Car stood out as it was jacked up in the middle of the car park. Working or not working at the time I don’t know but the paint job is fantastic and one of my favourites. There was also a retro Moto Guzzi motorcycle that must’ve lost its way from somewhere and was another great element to the mix in the paddock overall. It was a good turn out as can be expected, although Sandown isn’t as great as Phillip Island in my opinion, the track’s location and combination of speed and technical turns makes it a very functional and convenient course to get too and race on albeit a need for a resurface.

At the briefing we enjoyed the usual group banter and the introduction of new members. There appear to be more and more new members at every club event which is a very good sign of a healthy and well-run club. With the first group out at 9:30am to warm the track up for the others, we were off to a good start. The catering crew had the usual gourmet coffees, bacon and egg rolls and woodfired pizzas for lunch. Joseph Ensabella once again stood out as he broke the clubs and his own track record with a fantastic 1:11.8. Well done Joseph! The overall ranks appear to be closing as we head towards the end of the year, and lap times are consistently becoming better and better from all involved. The Entree class had an enjoyable day and I am sure we will see many move into Competition groups next year. The day was rather full until the very last race, which appears to be the norm due to some weird superstition about the last race. The hard liners and I remained to enjoy a full day with very good value for money. There were no tow trucks called as nobody ran into any walls and I am sure everyone is thankful for that. Once again thanks to all the members who volunteered for the day and assisted with the seamless running and our safety.

Is there a better sight in Australian Motorsport than arriving at the top of the hill at the entrance to Broadford at 7am on a clear Spring morning with the rolling hills stretched out before you, majestic in their splendour? Well yes, I reckon Phillip Island would be the pinnacle or maybe Mount Panorama, but ignoring those, and any others you can think of, then Broadford is quite special. It’s just like a mini Phillip Island with its twists and turns, gradients, descents, off camber, minimal runoff…. I like it! With an ambient air temp of around 20 but the sun warming the track nicely and just a little breeze surely the stage was set for track times to tumble. And sure enough the first runs were strong.

Class: OPEN Joseph Ensabella

Class: OTHER

This was the final competition event of the calendar with the subsequent Phillip Island and Presidents’ Day not counting. Whilst the clash with Bathurst and F1 Japan may have put a few off the trip north, with seven sessions and 10 minutes of track time each, it was to be a busy day. Garages and Carports seemed to be sufficient for all and the Gods looked to be favouring a positive approach as Michael O’Brien declared no scrutineering faults had been discovered on any car. Mark Horton Andrews carefully reminded everyone to stay on the track and avoid the cones. Brett Stevens then further hammered this home by holding up a cone in case we were confused and mentioned there were some new cones so probably best to stay away from them. I can’t remember if Tony Carolan talked about cones as well but given that he had a spin in the black GT3 at the top of the hill and Mark clipped a cone with the Boxster then let’s just leave it there! Once again, the sign on, briefing, Marshals and support were all exemplary, we are one lucky club to have this dedicated team. Bill Toohey’s day started well as he reversed into

a well-placed carport, and he was looking pretty pleased, right up to the point when Peter Harrison asked him if he wouldn’t mind being a mentor for the entrée class, he then looked a little paler but gallantly agreed. The entrée class was well cared for and no doubt got some excellent advice – this approach is surely one of the real values of the club. And so, to the times. How Joe Ensabella manages to pilot a Cup car around the track in 0:58.54 is beyond me, watching from the lower pits it’s like there is a teleportation device between turn 2 and turn 5; I see the car exit, blink, and then it’s immediately turning at the end of the straight. Incidentally that time was a lap record! Richard Thompson again blitzed the GT3 field with a 1:04.2, what’s more remarkable is that he did this on Lap 2! I’m still working out which way the track goes on the second lap. It was also thought to be John Kennedy’s final round before heading off to focus on the 944 Challenge, so hopes were high for a championship winning run. A 1:06.8 was a little shy of his best but still tremendous for a 944 S2 (I need to raise my game) and clinches the Class D winnings. In the other classes (with more than 2 competitors) the results were strong: In Class A1 Simon Zettl improved on his previous winning time with an impressive 1:05.1 in the Cayman R. Whilst in Class B Danny Loypur also improved down to a 1:06.8 in the Cayman 987, and Grant Stephenson brought the old 91 SC home in a credible 1:08.9 for the spoils of Class C. In the Cups it was Simon Baxter’s flying lap of 1:01.4 in the 996 Cup for triumph in Class Cup 6. Some tidy times.

With the promise of a sunny Spring Sunday on the island, the day prior mostly rain, cold, spent racing around the shops of Cowes … my partner’s favoured sport always seeking a PB for bargains, it was my turn to once again attempt to set a blistering pace around the circuit and obtain my personal best on the track. Scrutineering was run by Michael in his usual efficient, timely manner to check all vehicles were prepared for and met all the safety requirements of our race day. As the weather was fine, the briefing was held outside near the dummy grid, with a large number of competitors standing by Australia’s premier track listening to the day’s clerk of the course, Andrew Bonwick. The briefing covered the usual requirements for the day, reinforced the flags and minimum maintenance requirements. Highlights of the day…. Leading the way in Open Class, Joseph Ensabella followed by Manny Mezzasalma and in third place Sally Ann Hains.

It was then the largest category of the day, GT Class led by Stefan Wojciechowski with a strong margin. Richard Thompson second place and in third Tony Carolan. Modified Class saw Peter Fitzgerald blitz the pack, with an impressive time in the Boxster S ~ 101.865. Denis LambrouFernando filled second spot and the top 3 was rounded out by Richard Batchelor. Now to my Class, A in which I did set a personal best (!) first up in the morning, then to be outdone by Simon Zettl in the last 15 minutes of running in the day, and next on the podium Bill Toohey. Next indeed, it is Class B. Daniel Reynolds led the field home with a comfortable margin to Richard Catchlove in second and Jason Whitling third past the finish line. In C Class, we saw Simon Dunn finish first, with nearly a 4 second lead over Grant Stephenson, then Cameron Goodyear in third. Class D once again saw John Kennedy set a brilliant time to be first at the finish, then Garry Voges and Philip Cox.

Next for Cup Class, Simon Baxter closely followed by Andrew Hall and then Andrew Sluger.

Mid Week

Run to Birregurra Story: Michael Bailey Photos: Ken Anson Wednesday 23rd October 2019

When is a Mid Week Run to Birregurra not a run to Birregurra? Answer: When the Mid Week Run goes to Beeac instead! How did this happen? Please read on. As the run organiser I had arranged with both the Bakery in Inverleigh (the starting point) and a Hotel in Birregurra with numbers for the final mid week run of 2019. Problem? Not normally, however on this occasion enter the Geelong Cup! The bakery was closed to bet on the nags and did not advise, though luckily alternative coffee was nearby. That was the easy bit, but now what to do about lunch at Birre’? I had been phoning the pub for four days prior to confirm again. Yes you guessed correctly - no answer. Stay with me - there’s more! So while road notes had been prepared and handed out we were still wondering what to do about a lunch venue? So many questions, now searching for an answer and a brainwave.

58

PORSCHE PARADE

While coffee and discussions were taking place a call to the Beeac Hotel came the reply I wanted to hear, “yes of course, regardless of numbers”. After a quick reconfigure of the notes and explanation we finally left for Winchelsea, the back way, followed by Eurack to Beeac for the first time. We then headed over to Warrion, then past the old dairy facility at Coragulac now occupied by Skunk Works and on to Colac where we encountered a short detour, then the back way to Birregurra, but wait, we weren’t going there were we! Just as we settled into a safe clip, it was off to the left and heading north. But drama was to be included at the crossing with the Princess Highway in the form of the unexpected 100 metres of shock horror, gravel. Some thought the end of the world was nigh but no just gravel @ 40kph. Now finally a very enjoyable road back to Eurack and by a second loop, back into Beeac.

Now for some good news! (Can there be?) The owner, Ian happened to be there and saw the Porsche cavalcade(from a GT3 RS to Boxster/ Caymans plus 911s) pull up out front, and offered to open up part of his extensive car collection. This was well received and was followed by great food and conversation. I am appreciative of all the club members who braved the trip south west, but a special mention must go to Tas and Marlene who travelled all the way from Tynong. Thank you both!

Run To Eildon/Mansfield Story: Lily Williams Photos: Ken Anson Saturday 5th October (& optional 6th October)

The Mid 911 Register Run to Eildon/Mansfield met at the Croydon McDonalds where we were kindly greeted by Jim and Mandy Adamson. We welcomed new club member Jim McPhee on his first ever run with his beautiful 1986 911 in Grand Prix White. The weather gods were certainly tantalising us with a most gorgeous forecast for the weekend. A superb Saturday morning made for an enthusiastic bunch of drivers raring to head off, but not before Jim Adamson kindly extended his friendship by offering overnight accommodation to any late comers (although we are still not sure if he was offering his bed or paying for a spare room!!) The group headed off at 10.15am on the first leg toward the Yarra Ranges bound for the delightful town of Yea. It wasn’t too long before we passed the lovely Biachant and Chateu Yering Wineries, perhaps a little teaser for some delightful wines to enjoy in the afternoon! We made a left onto Butterman’s Track where the group enjoyed the road ahead, great corners, narrow tight roads high up through the Kinglake National Park. As we came down through the park the road opened up for some fantastic long sweeping corners where we could really let loose particularly through Break Oday Road towards Flowerdale. Stunning pastural valley’s 60

PORSCHE PARADE

and long meandering roads were perfect timing to up the music and throttle to really take in the surroundings on a brilliant spring morning! We arrived in Yea at 11.35 to meet up for a much-needed coffee and delectable cakes at the Rendezvous Café whilst enjoying some banter in the wonderful courtyard sun For our second leg we headed off at 12.30 for Eildon where once again we had the pleasure of a relaxing drive through Acheron and the stunning valley’s through Taggerty and the wonderful sights of the Cathedral Ranges and finally meeting an hour later at the Aqua Bar and Café for lunch. The 911’s had pride of place in the main carpark (thanks to Greg from the Aqua Café) which made for a great photo opportunity. We enjoyed lunch on the decking with uninterrupted views of Lake Eildon and were quick to head to the bar for refreshments which certainly quenched our thirst as we basked in the amazing afternoon sun. For Lunch there was a great selection from the menu such as Battered Flat head tails, Steaks, Salt and Pepper Squid to name but a few. Lots of laughs and a great afternoon enjoying each other’s company. All was well until the raffle, where Table 26 suspiciously took all the spoils, some would say rigged yet somehow, they called it lucky!

Anyway, congratulations to our raffle winners: Mandy Adamson, Kenny Eve and Harriet Anson. A special thanks for our hosts at the Aqua Bar & Café, Greg and Tracey, who kindly donated a bottle of wine for the day’s scribe, and went out of their way to make us welcome. For our Final drive the group heading off at 3pm for the longest section of our run: Eildon to Mansfield. This leg was approx. 2 hours where the drivers were really put through their paces on the extremely tight and very winding narrow roads, with many ascents and descents in this leg. Driver skills was really put to the test. We drove through Eildon National park where we were enclosed by the magnificent dense bush and the feeling of being “on top of the world’ Several of the group gathered for a stretch of the legs at the scenic Look Out which showcased the gorgeous region with the Howqua Inlet below. This was a terrific spot for some wonderful panoramic photos. After a short stop over we were off and running again and with the roads finally opening up as we headed into Mansfield arriving at 5pm. The group had several hours to unwind before we took a short walk from our accommodation to meet at 7pm at the Bos Taurus Restaurant. Pre-dinner drinks were enjoyed outside the upper deck on a balmy Spring evening followed by a wonderful dinner with the speciality being the


premium steaks from Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best producers. It was a lovely night full of laughs, wine and conversation with fabulous friends and a few celebrity look a likes within our group; Ewan Walsh aka Drew Carey and Murray Seymour aka Shane Bourne. A short stroll home and a well-earned sleep after an amazing day was had by all.

On Sunday and we awoke to another glorious spring morning where we met for breakfast at The Coffee Merchant with some delicious breaky options such as Pork Benedict, Ham and Gruyere croquettes and of course a mandatory coffee. Before too long we said our good byes as we made our way home with a few in the group heading for one last run through to gorgeous Healesville.

Mid 911 register members would like to extend their special thanks to Jim and Mandy Adamson for organising this thrill filled run, accommodation options and fabulous places to dine, wine and enjoy. A terrific weekend was had by all.

torque tube Register

Run to 400 Gradi, Yarra Valley Story: Nigel Watson Photos: Angelo Monteleone Sunday 15th September

On 15 September 2019, 38 members and friends gathered for a four year anniversary run to the location of the PCV 40th anniversary celebration on 20 September 2015. Unlike the beautiful spring day 4 years ago the day greeted us with icy Antarctic winds and rain showers. However, we warmed up over coffee and noisy chatting at LaManna in Essendon fields. Our register captains Angelo and Ivan called us to order for a briefing. They were elated that there was a good mix of Torque Tube cars and many more other models Angelo was pleased to welcome three new members. Graham Gooding and his son were relieved to have their 928S on the road after some restoration, Gary and Lyn Morgan told us how they left Frankston in sunshine but were still pleased to join us in their 968, and Brian and Margot Bourke whom were returning members after a 4 year sabbatical in the UK. Mario Malavisi, a torque tube run regular with his 996 had checked our route with his wife Stef and prepared the clear and accurate navigation directions which is quite a welcome change to the usual U-Turn challenges from previous runs. Mario chose some great roads which took us out towards Sunbury, onto Lancefield, Romsey, Wallan and into Flying Tarts at Pheasant Creek

PORSCHE PARADE

for our morning break. We had driven a variety of open roads, sweeping bends, narrow bridges and a few tight corners. We were congratulating Mario on his route but he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;just wait, the best is yet to come!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He was right as our second run took us along some great twisty corners along the Myers Creek Road into Healesville and then a short cruise to Rochford winery. Mario brought along his twin brother Renato and his wife Suzie in their Cayman. Mario was into Porsche well before Renato but Renato boasted that he at least owned some Porsche caps well before Mario. Must be a twin thing to play one-up as I fondly remember Angelo and Tony doing the same thing as well. Brian and Margot Burke were on their first run after 3 years in the UK. Their 968 Cab had been in storage and they were thrilled to blow out the cobwebs with such a great run. Their only regret was that they were not brave enough to drop the roof but understandably that was a sensible decision given the weather. Lunch was at 400 Gradi at Rochford Winery. This is a new building with a tasting area and large restaurant .The building has views across a lake and over the area where our cars were displayed in 2015. We had the exclusive use of the upper level of the restaurant where we were treated

to an excellent selection of share plates with a welcome salumi and formaggi board followed by different pizzas and pastas. Congratulations to Angelo, Ivan and Mario for a top day which was thoroughly enjoyed by us all.

Run to Yering Meadows Golf Club Story: Andrea Delaforce Photos: Steve Cappadona Saturday 9th November, 2019

Some new faces and some great cars (Incl. 930, 964, 978, 991, 996, 997 models) gathered at Melissa’s Cakes at Templestowe for a great selection of goodies to start the day. The weather looked ominous causing some folk to not join us, but we gathered for the briefing and a coffee in anticipation of another well organized and adventure filled run. As with any Kon run, there are roadworks, but this one promised (by Kon on the maps) to be spectacular. We couldn’t wait for the trials and tribulations of so many potential dusty, rocky roads and roadworks (10 in total) for our beloved Porsches, but of course our cars handled them with ease. We head out, with some of the group reluctant to feel the pressure of being lead car. Off we drive and at the very first roundabout we go straight (according to the directions) while several drivers go left. Usually we get a little further into the run before the alternative routes start, hoping this wasn’t a bad omen. Overcast but dry and lovely scenery as we wind our way around Kinglake, Healesville, Yarra Glen and Eltham areas. The slow CFA truck on “L plates” on some twisty roads held up a few drivers, with some “spirited” overtaking required to get past the driver who I’m sure out of pure jealousy refused to pull over for us to pass. We meet up at Dark Horse Café for giant scones (go Val) and coffee and a chat about great countryside, wrong turns and missed signs. A 64

PORSCHE PARADE

great little café, busy, but enjoyed a quick pit stop there. We were appreciative of a substitute page (from Kon off the VicRoads website), with an unsealed road warning for the second stage of the run, ending at Yering Meadows Golf Club. We travel over some roads on more than one occasion (normal for a Kon run), I think he does it to confuse the drivers and he secretly laughs at us when we get lost on a road we’ve already been on. Still overcast, but for a reluctant drop or two we drive around Toolangi, past the Chocolaterie (tempted to end our run there) and around Kinglake, Healesville and Yarra Glen. Quite a few heads turn as we pass groups of cyclists and locals in towns as our stunning stream of Porsches slowly glide past. We come across and subsequently overtake a surprising number of grey nomads in this area, not sure what that means, but on we travel. We arrive at the lovely golf club at Yering, with a vista of sweeping fairways and lush greens and an expansive clubhouse. Meeting in our reserved room, two tables of ragged drivers and their superb navigators (if you were lucky enough to have one) were ready for lunch. A stunning view over the course with some strangely attired people hitting a little white ball with a stick, smoke coming out of ears and sticks flying on occasions I’m sure.

We order lunch and Kon has the bottles ready for the lucky draw. Several draws later, lucky winners were beaming with their recently acquired bottles of red or white. Lots of chatting and laughter, what a great group on this run, mixture of ages, some travelling on their own or in couples, all appreciating the opportunity to give our cars the ‘open air’ run they need in the cars we love and enjoy the company that the club makes possible. Once again, we all thank Kon for the time he takes in preparing and organising these great runs, we meet new people, cement friendships already made and admire cars, but most of all we have fun and we look forward to the next time we see our friends. Thanks Kon!

Early Morning Run to Naked Racer Café Story: James Borg & David Hosking 20th Oct 2019

The Turbo Register is quite well known for its early morning runs – a very early start, a drive and breakfast. But just for something a little different, this ‘early morning run’ wasn’t particularly early and apart from arriving at the destination – did not consist of a ‘run’ component.

….the Ferrari Spider that won a Concours in Canberra, having been driven there the previous night ….996Turbo, or “Naughty Car” due to it’s propensity to attract Constabulary Oh, and of course, a Rolls Royce to carry the dogs !

17 members arrived at (fellow PCV member) Cameron’s facility to be given a guided tour of his fantastic collection of fine cars. A glance across the garage revealed several Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Ferraris, a racing Mini, Aston Martin and of course a Porsche.

Cam is very protective of his collection and asked that photos not be put on social media or openly published. We were very fortunate to be invited to see his collection and of course we abided by this request regarding photos.

Our host was passionate about each and every car, giving details as to the particular exclusivity of each model, how he came to find them and special memories of driving them. …for instance; ….an Australian delivered Ferrari in the collection was 1 of 18 right-hand drives built. During the build sequence, only 17 engines were prepared, so the 18th (destined for Australia) was fitted with a Le Mans race engine just to complete the order (The equivalent of being given the winning tickets for Tattslotto and Powerball in the same week) ….a Rolls Royce with ‘book-matched’ cocktail trays featuring a map of Australia & little rabbit faces. Rolls Royce and Bentley specialize in this art-form, with most other brands…ummm, just using plastic. 66

PORSCHE PARADE

After a few questions were asked and a wander around the collection it was on to breakfast at The Naked Racer Café. Service was prompt and the breakfasts and hot beverages were superb. We all enjoyed a chat over breakfast and a wander through this extraordinary collection of motorcycles. Numerous examples from Japan, Europe and Britain were on display surrounded by an eclectic array of motoring paraphernalia. Special thanks go to David Hosking for arranging our special guided tour. Thank-you to all members who came along to the three events we arranged this year for the Turbo Register. It was a pleasure to have you along and wish to see you again next year. Safe and happy festive season.
