President’s Message

M

November 2016

aybe the good old days were not always so good. There are times when the maintenance of our Porsches seems a bit daunting. But I recently came across a maintenance schedule for a car from the early days of the U.S. auto industry. The Franklin automobile was built between 1902 and 1934 in Syracuse, NY. With their air cooled engines, Franklin sold about 150,000 cars during it’s 30 year history. The maintenance diagram of a Franklin automobile chassis which I uncovered indicated what was required to maintain these early cars. The diagram is on page 3, but a summary is as follows:

5 items required attention every 100 miles or every week.

10 items required attention every 500 miles or every 2 weeks.

22 items required attention every 1000 miles or every month.

8 items required attention every 3000 miles or every 4 months.

Most of these appear to be lubrication points but also may include changes of the gear box oil, cleaning of contacts and tire inspections. There is also a note to remind the owner to “add distilled water to the battery every week when the car is used”. Consider this the next time you review your scheduled maintenance for your Porsche. Oil changes are once per year...spark plug changes every 4 years...and the drive belt is replaced every 6 years. With current labor costs, we’re fortunate that the automotive industry has made significant advancements in maintenance and reliability. Now that’s something to be thankful for. We are looking forward to having our Zone Rep. Julie Bailey and her husband, Chester, visit us in Columbia on Saturday, Nov. 19. There will be an informal meet and greet followed by dinner at Grand Cru Restaurant on South Providence. Zone Reps are appointed by PCA National and serve as liaisons with Regional leadership and members. Also worth noting at this time that our annual Holiday Party will be on Saturday, Dec. 10 at Clear Auto Bra.

5:00 p.m., November 19 Grand Cru Restaurant Columbia, MO

E

very St. Louis Region members is invited to join our mid-Missouri members for the first of their popular winter season dinner gatherings at the Grand Cru Restaurant on November 19th.

Our Zone 10 Representative Julie Bailey and her husband, Chester, will be in Columbia for dinner at Grand Cru Restaurant. Julie and Chester are both active with the PCA Club Racing program and will hopefully share some of their adventures from this past season. Just what is a PCA Zone Representative? Zone Reps serve as liaisons between the PCA National Executive Committee and the 13 Zones in the US and Canada. They serve a critical role by acting as advisors and problem solvers. The St. Louis Region, which is comprised of approximately 850 primary and affiliate (i.e. spouses) members is one of ten Regions that make up Zone 10. Zone 10 extends northward from Missouri, Kansas, and Southern Illinois to Minnesota, N. Dakota and Manitoba, Canada to the north - a very large area with more than 3500 members. Please join us for a casual 5:00 p.m. reception at Grand Cru Restaurant at 2600 S. Providence in Columbia followed by a 6:00 p.m. dinner. Julie and Chester will be travelling from their home in Wichita, KS, and we are very excited to have them join us in Columbia. Please RSVP to J. Thrash at thrash@embarqmail.com if you will be able to attend.

German Govt. Votes to Go Green

ermany’s top governing body - the Bundesrat - has voted to allow ONLY zero-emissions vehicles on Germany’s roads by 2030. The vote calls for a ban on the use of internal combustion engines in about 14 years. The German Minister of Transport quickly moved to say the vote was basically a symbolic gesture by the law makers towards a more environmentally friendly future. The law

basically has no real power to force the shut down of internal combustion engine production, but it will clearly add emphasis to clean energy research in the next decade. The German vote follows a 2008 vote by Norway to phase out gas propelled vehicles by 2030. Norway has since pushed the ban on internal combustion engines off till 2050. 9


St. Louis Region joins national food drive Nov. 25 - Dec. 3

F

or several years, Philadelphia area Porschephiles have participated in an end of the year food drive through Riesentoter Region. Riesentoter Region and PCA National are encouraging other Regions to launch food drives in their home areas to turn the Philadelphia event into a National PCA food drive for local food pantries. In support of the National Food Drive, St. Louis Region has joined forces with Operation Food Search, one of the area’s largest suppliers of food items to area food pantries to help hungry families in Eastern Missouri and Southwestern Illinois have a healthy, flavorful holiday season through our “Share the Season” food drive. Beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 25th, food collections will begin at a number of our Regional sponsors and supporters...Porsche St. Louis...JML Audio of St. Louis...Clear Auto Bra...all three Car-Craft Auto Body Shops. Barrels clearly marked with the “Share the Season” seal will be placed at each location. We encourage you to stop by our collection drops with donations of non-perishable canned and boxed food items. (No glass jars, please - they can break during handling.) Canned tuna, canned chicken or meats...canned soups, chilis and stews... canned beans....canned fruits....boxed pancake and biscuit mixes...boxed oatmeal and cereals...all are very much in demand. Economical store brands are encouraged. Operation Food Search also provides the needy with items such as zip-lock bags (especially gallon and quart bags)...and toothpaste and toothbrushes. Please - no ramen noodles. On December 3rd, the donations will be gathered and prepared for delivery to the Operation Food Search warehouse in Overland. We are working to co-ordinate a drop off which will allow our members to drive as a group to Operation Food Search to hand over our food drive efforts. For more information, contact Earlwayne Stumpf at essescom@aol.com or by phone or text at 314/973-3106 about our Regional efforts and how you can help.

The Holiday Season is Almost HERE -

Regional Holiday Party December 10

T

he Holidays will be here before we know it. And holiday parties and celebrations will quickly fill our schedules, so now is the time to reserve December 10th for our Regional Christmas Party. This year, Mark at Clear Auto Bra has suggested something a little different...a private party where we won’t have to compete with other holiday party goers for parking spaces...elbow room in busy restaurants...or loud parties in other rooms. Mark is putting together a catered Christmas Party with live music to bring in the holidays. And he promises some extra surprises. This is one party you won’t want to miss. Watch for more details in the December Plauderei. And save December 10th to ring in the Christmas Season with your Porsche friends. Hope to see you there!

All Porsche Car Show

sponsored by Porsche St. Louis

W

hat makes a Porsche a collector’s gem? And how do you care for that ‘special’ Porsche? Those were just some of the questions answered at Saturday night kick-off cocktail party of the All Porsche Car Show, sponsored by Porsche St. Louis. A couple beautiful, ‘classic’ Porsches greeted those who gathered at the Doubletree at Westport for the All Porsche Car Show opening Cocktail Party. St. Louis Region member and noted Master of Ceremonies for Porsche events all over the country, Mark Shevitz welcomed and introduced two of our Region’s most renowned auto collectors Reid Vann and Jim Weddle. Each commented on the joys and challenges of collecting rare classic cars such as

Reid’s 1973 Carrera RS

and Jim’s 356 and 1986 959 which greeted all attending the Saturday evening cocktail party.

13


Sunday morning, the cars featured at Saturday night’s cocktail party were joined on the streets of Clayton by dozens of classic Porsches - vintage and new.

Rows of colorful Porsches lined the streets and thanks to the support of the City of Clayton were allowed to fill the center of Brentwood Boulevard in the heart of the city.

14

The Porsches attracted an steady stream of spectators who crowded around for a closer look at many of the finest Porsches in the Midwest - old and new, including some of the rarest of all Porsches.


Spectators could also visit displays from our Car Show sponsors - Porsche St. Louis... JML Audio of St. Louis... Clear Auto Bra and The Detailing Pros while waiting for the winners to be announced.

Continental Tire Acquires Hoosier Racing Tire

C

ontinental Tire, sponsor of the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge has acquired Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. of Lakeville, Indiana. Since 1957, Hoosier has been making race tires for individual racers all across the country. A couple decades ago, the brand name tire manufacturers...Goodyear and Goodrich, abandoned hobby racers and focused on the big racing sanctioning body series, leaving amateur racers without a source for new race tires. Luckily, most could turn to Hoosier who stepped up to fill the void. Almost 7 years ago, Continental turned to Hoosier for help when Continental stepped up it’s racing efforts in North America and depended on Hoosier’s help when Continental became lead sponsor

of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. Continental didn’t have the manufacturing capacity and dealer support here in the US. Continental and Hoosier began sharing technical and manufacturing information to meet the growing tire needs of the popular racing series. It was natural for Hoosier to eventually fall under the Continental banner. Reports say that the Hoosier will live on and Hoosier will continue to serve individual racers and provide race event support, while Continental will supply capital and engineering and R&D support as the demand for racing tires grows. The deal is not expected to change much at Hoosier’s Lakeville, Indiana facilities in the immediate future, but look for some possible expansion in the not too distant future. 17

Closing out the 2016 DE season -

Porsche St. Louis Fall HPDE

O

nce again, Mother Nature proved she is a Porsche fan as she delivered clear autumn blue skies and comfortable temperatures for our closing driver’s education week-end of 2016 - our Porsche St. Louis Fall HPDE (High Performance Driver’s Education. The conditions were perfect for taking vehicles to the track without fear of overheating either the car or the driver and instructor. As expected, it was a full house in the garage and on the track as the HPDE once again filled well before the event weekend. Students and instructors enjoyed nearly a clear weekend of track time with only minor breaks to attend to minor delays from time to time. But

all the driving can take it’s toll on drivers. Luckily, conditions were perfect for stretching out

in the autumn sun for a brief respite, while others used the breaks in the driving schedule

to attend to concerns before their next track session. Luckily, there are plenty of willing hands to help when problems arise. 19


Plans are already being laid for the 2017 DE season at Gateway Motorsports Park. Once again, our early plans call for our Spring and Fall HPDE’s to be joined by another PCA Club Race early in the year. We are still co-ordinating with the National Club Race group to get our race on the National calendar.

Our efforts would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors led by Porsche St. Louis, with added support from Clear Auto Bra, JML Audio of St. Louis, West County Auto Body and our our newest sponsor, Franjo Speed. And of course, we are extremely grateful of the tech inspection support provided by Reid Vann and ET Tuning. The dates of our 2017 track events will hopefully be known soon, so watch for the Tentative 2017 Calendar which will be available shortly after the first of the year. And mark your calendars, because these events sell out quickly. Don’t miss out of the fun and fast learning experience.

The Future in the Making

I

f you haven’t driven past the future home of Porsche St. Louis recently, you are in for a surprise. The site at the intersection of South Hanley and Flora, 1 block south of Manchester and directly across Hanley from Autohaus BMW, is a flurry of activity as construction workers scramble to finish the exterior of the new building before winter sets in. (The smaller building under construction south of the new Porsche facility is not part of the new Porsche St. Louis campus. It is actually Jim Butler’s new Alfa Romero / Maserati center.) Traffic lights at the intersection immediately in front of the new car showroom / service facility will make for easy access to the new location. James Drake, General Manager of Porsche St. Louis, says that at the current rate of progress, the dealership could be relocating to the new facility in a couple months. Watch for the announcement of a special Open House / Tour when the new facility opens.

Mark Webber hangs up his helmet

P

orsche factory 919 Hybrid pilot and cowinner of the 2015 World Endurance Championship Mark Webber has decided it is time to leave the racing cockpit. Webber, a long time favorite of F1 fans from his days on the Minardi, Jaguar, Williams and finally, Red Bull F1 teams, quickly captured Porsche fan loyalty when he signed on as part of the 919 Hybrid racing effort in 2014. After a shaky start in 2015, just barely losing the 24 Hours of LeMans to the other factory 919 Hybrid, Webber found his groove in mid-season and the Mark Webber, Timo Bernard, and Brendon Hartley 919 went on a 4-race winning streak to claim the championship at the close of the 2015 season. It was Webber’s first world championship in any form of racing. 2016 has been a mixed bag for the #1 919 pilots, but the year has been far more good than bad, so Webber has decided it might be best to call it a career at age 40. Webber told reporters before the WEC Fuji race in mid-October that he was finding it difficult to maintain the razor’s edge concentration required in racing today, and he could no longer ‘race half-hearted’. Webber noted that it would be better to leave when you still had a little more to give than find you stuck around a year or two too long and had become a drag on the team. Webber will close out his career as a Porsche factory WEC driver after the final 2016 WEC race in Bahrain on November 19. Mark will remain with Porsche as a “special representative”. His exact responsibilities have yet to be defined, but it is believed he will focus on new driver development and serve as a brand ambassador representing Porsche AG at public functions around the world. Rumors say that Porsche factory 911 pilots Nick Tandy or Earl Bamber are the most likely candidates to fill the void in the 919 teams after Webber’s retirement.

Heartland Park on the mend

t’s been a long road for the Heartland Park Motorsports complex outside Topeka, Kansas. Once a gleaming motorsports gem after it’s opening in 1989, the facility had fallen on some hard times. In the last decade of the 20th century, Heartland Park was riding high - the headquarters of the Sports Car Club of America Club Racing program and home of the SCCA National Championships from 2006 through 2008, the track surface began breaking up, and there wasn’t enough money to make repairs. Events dwindled, revenues dried up and the track declined even further. The SCCA took it’s National Championships to other tracks...local car clubs stopped sponsoring events...and the track went through several management teams trying to come back to life. In January of this year, the complex was bought by the Shelby Development, LLC team which promised the Topeka City Council that it would make repairs. Throughout 2016, the drag strip held a steady schedule of events, and a few events were held on the dirt track, but the large road course remained unused. Finally, the track owners have turned their attention to the road course, and repairs are underway. The Kansas City Region Driving Committee Chairs recently toured the repairs and sent out a report to PCA track event fans. The track’s new road course manager, Jeff Lacina, took the KC PCA DE team out on the track to show that the track surface is being ground off the entire 4 mile long road course. 3” of the asphalt surface is being ground off to uncover the track base, uncovering several areas where the base needed substantial repairs. Once the track base was repaired, the new surface began going down in 2 - 1 1/5 inch layers. All new virgin asphalt (no recycled material in the mix) is being laid down. The formula is the same asphalt mix that was used when the NASCAR Kansas Speedway was repaved, so hopefully, this track surface will last and provide excellent traction and safety. Work is scheduled to be finished before winter sets in to give the track a winter to settle in and hopefully, the Heartland Park road course will be back in business for the 2017 season. The Heartland Park management team is working to win the local car clubs back to the 2017 schedule. Both Kansas City Region and the KC BMW Club are working with the track to schedule return events for next year. Watch our 2017 Schedule of Events for the KC events. Heartland Park was a challenging track and should hopefully return to it’s past glory.
