President's Message 
Mike Hinton President
by Mike Hinton, Redwood Region President

  The ever-decreasing amount of sunlight every day, and crisp morning temperatures are reminders that summer is almost over.  With luck, there won't be too many more 100 degree plus days.  Those are tough in non-air-conditioned cars!
  Even though summer may be winding down, your Region still has a full slate of events coming up in September, including an autocross and a concours.  Come and check them out! 
  Speaking of autocross, in August, I brought our 2014 Carrera to the event, instead of my trusty 1972 911T (Barney).  I was curious about how I would be able to adapt (or not) to the vast improvements in acceleration, cornering and braking that the 991 would offer.  I hadn't felt the butterflies in my stomach before my first run since my first season of autocross, some 5+ years ago.  If I had to sum up the first run in one word, it would be "terrifying!"  The speeds were much greater, and the braking points were much later than I was accustomed to.  That said, after a couple of runs, I felt much more comfortable, and really began to enjoy myself.  The lasting takeaway from the day was that the 991 is WIDE!   I kept clipping cones, because I was unable to judge where the back wheels really were.  The black cone marks on the left rear were mute testimony to that fact!  Still, the day was enough fun that the 991 will probably make another appearance at the September event.  Come on out and watch me murder some cones!
  There is one more non-Redwood Region event in September that merits your attention:  Rennsport Reunion V, from September 27-29 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.  In a nutshell, the event is probably the finest gathering of Porsche race cars anywhere in the world.  The best part of the event is that it's no static display - the historic racers will be driven in anger on the track.  For me, there's nothing like the sound of the flat-8 908s and flat-12 917s chasing each other around Laguna Seca's challenging layout.  In addition, there will probably be in excess of 1,000 cars parked in the Porsche corral, which I believe will be near Turn 5.  If you have any interest at all in historic Porsche racers, you owe it to yourself to come out for a look.
  In addition to the festivities at the track, Craig Steele and I are organizing a dinner get-together on Saturday evening at Petra's in Pacific Grove.  If you're interested in attending, please let Craig or me know, and how many people will be in your party.  Both of our e-mail addresses are on the Redwood Region website.
I hope to see you at one of the upcoming events.


From the Editor

by Jamie DeRuiter, der Riesenbaum Editor

  I need your stories.  I know you all get out and have fun in your Porsches.  I would love to share your adventures here in the der Riesenbaum.  I'm easy to find.  Just go to our website and you'll see my email address there.  It may be a big event or just your personal road trip but I'd love to share your enthusiasm for all things Porsche related.

  I had the pleasure of attending a few events last month.  Another autorcross and a wine tasting at the Pech Merle wine tasting room.  Both events prove to me that we have a great group of people involved in the Redwood Region.  I thank you all for your gracious and enthusiastic participation in our events.  The potluck food at the Pech Merle event was very tasty and very much complimented the level of fine wine they offered.  I know the best part was the BBQ'd chicken that Mike Hinton and I cooked up for the group...yeah, we did a good job and were proud to help feed the group of enthusiastic drivers/owners/adventurers that showed up.

  Mike highlighted the upcoming events that you should take a look at in his President's message.  I'd just like to add that we are a great group of welcoming people and would love to see you all come out and enjoy one of our special events.  You won't be sorry!  There's something about our Porsches that begs us to go out and adventure.  Our Redwood Region offers some good opportunities to do just that.  New member, transfer or veteran I'd love to meet you all and share the fun that is the Redwood Region.  Check out our calendar and see what works for you.  

Shift Toward Adventure,

Redwood Members Win at Werks Reunion
1967 Porsche 912

Redwood Members Richard & Margo Maxey won first place in the 912 Tribute class with their 1967 912.

Win a set of Michelin tires, attend the 2016 24 Hour of Le Mans - It's as easy as registering for the 2015 Werks Reunion. Joe Burroughs did - he won the Grand Prize of a trip (airfare and lodging) for two adults to Le Mans.

Winning the Grand Prize

   One unlucky (unnamed here) participant left 5 minutes before his name was called to win a set of Michelin tires.  Guess it pays to stay around until the end (must be present to win.)  See you next year.

Working Werks 2015
by Chip Witt

  The Porsche Club of America held its second annual Werks Reunion at the Rancho Canada Golf Club in Carmel, California on Friday, August 14, 2015. For what is surely a mere glimmer of the Rennsport Reunion event to come later in September, attendees of Werks were treated to a an amazing display of more than 500 Porsches, special vehicle presentations and celebrity guests.

  I opted to get up very early Friday and drive down to the event site. Even though it was early, I saw several others on their way along my travels, including the VW bus with Porsche markings that was eventually prominently displayed in the concours area. Arriving around 05:30, I was among the first cars in line to park on the corral. This allowed me to get oriented prior to the start of my volunteer shift where I helped direct traffic beginning at 07:00. I met several of my fellow Porsche owners as we stood around chatting next to our cars, all of us noting immediately how much time and effort had gone into preparations for this year's event and the many improvements over the inaugural event last year. In fact, I heard it said that many responsible for aspects of the setup had remained all night to insure everything was ready for the big day. This dedication showed in the smoothness of the event throughout.

  I really enjoy volunteering to direct parking traffic for one very selfish reason: I get opportunity to preview all of the concours and corral participants as they arrive. This sometimes comes with a unique treat, like this year having the opportunity to enjoy a quick, casual conversation with racing legend Bobby Rahal as he drove in to the event (in a BMW, which I decided not to hold against him), who was attending the event as part of a vendor presentation.

  Once I was done with my volunteer shift, I was able to walk around and take pictures of some of the amazing cars as I met some of their equally amazing owners. In weighing Werks Reunion against all of the other many events that take place during the world-famous "Monterey Car Week", I can't help but smile realizing that it's the camaraderie of Porsche owners and their, enthusiasm...with which they answer questions and share their experiences with anyone and everyone they meet that makes it among the most unique and thoroughly enjoyable events of the week.

  If you've yet to participate in one of the first two Werks Reunion events, I strongly encourage you to add it to your calendar for next year. It is sure to be one of the highlights of "Monterey Car Week" for many years to come. When you do come out, be sure to say, "Hey", as you drive by me at the gate.

Autocross #7 - August 8th, 2015
 by Jamie DeRuiter 

  Well our last course was certainly an interesting one.  Bob outdid himself this time.  What a fun course!  Nicknamed the 'Eight Ball' course for the date of the event ( 8-8-2015 ).  Check out the course:

AX #7 "Eight Ball"

  It was another perfect day for autocross.  The weather was mild and only got into the low eighties with a slight breeze in the afternoon.  We've been very blessed this season with milder temperatures for our races.

  The course design only allowed for two cars on the track at a time and the second car had to finish the course before another two were allowed to run.  This made for only nine runs for the day but the course was so fun that I don't think anyone cared.  

  The course workers were great and got a lot of exercise chasing hit cones down and replacing them to their spots.  It was the kind of course that begged to be pushed to the limit and many cones were ruthlessly dragged and smashed by our aggressive driving.  I know I had to chase down my share of abused cones on station #1.

  The usual suspects were there along with some new faces.  It was nice to meet Chris O'Connor and watch him drive his 2014 Cayman into the #3 spot overall with a time of 50.077.  Nice driving Chris!

  The Top Time of Day (TTOD) for the men went to Trevor Ridgley in his 1994 968 with a time of 47.245.  His Porsche is both beautiful and fast.  His car reminds me of the song by Joe Satriani called 'Flying In A Blue Dream'.  Trevor's collection of fast autocross cars never ceases to amaze me nor does his skill as a driver.

  TTOD for the women went to Vern Thomas in her 2002 Boxster with a time of 54.317.  Watching Vern negotiate the course can only be described as smooth and controlled with a large dose of ATTACK!  The red #7L is a force to reckon with at autocross.  Way to tear it up Vern.

My view on Grid of the #7/#7L car about to launch

  The Powers were out in force driving their 1964 356 that I like to call 'Dad' since I drive a 912.  Larry, Kim and Drew (along with their adopted son Chip Witt) drove the tires off that car.  At station #1, where I worked the course, I got to see all of them lift the inside front tire off the ground while taming the car around that corner.  This crew of autocrossers define what it's like to have a great time driving our Porsches just for the thrill of it all.  Way to represent our club!

  Ryan and Greg Matsumoto went head to head in their 2007 911S again.  This time Ryan got the better of Greg by 0.02 seconds.  Nice driving 'kid'.  This father son battle has been a kick to watch this year.  This kind of family competition can only make them faster in the end.  I can imagine what they're both thinking on grid as they prepare to launch onto the track..."Let's see if you can beat this one Dad/Son!"

  We make a habit of rounding up at Applebee's in Santa Rosa after our events.  We got to share some good laughs and stories about the day.  Our group makes sure anyone who comes out has a fun and safe event and the people you meet and get to know are why I love these races.

Iceman Report - Virginia City Hill Climb 
by Craig Steele   

  Visited the Virginia City Hill Climb on August 29th and 30th put on annually by the Ferrari and Shelby Auto Clubs. I had heard a lot about the event from various friends and decided to see what all the excitement was about. The Hill Climb closes a 5.2-mile road known as Nevada Route 341. It starts at 5000 feet elevation and finishes 6200 feet. There are 20 major turns in that small amount of highway. It starts on a Saturday ending Sunday, there were 65 automobiles registered. I saw everything from Ferraris and Tigers to McLarens, Mustangs, Vipers, etc. I was of course rooting for the Porsches. My favorite was yellow 911 Turbo who had the 3rd best Sunday time of 3:25.9 (90.9 mph). Only the Nissan GTR (3:21.3 / 93 mph) and McLaren P1 (3:22.8 / 92.3) had slightly faster times. I watched the finish line on Saturday and switched to the Start line on Sunday. I also toured Virginia City wandering the boardwalk and stopping for Sunday breakfast. This could be a fun venue to plan a weekend trip.

McLaren P1 catches up at the finish with the preceding car, that's pretty fast on turn 21

The turbo is ready to start, every car's rear wheel is blocked to prevent roll back into next racer

This is my favorite Yellow bird Porsche rounding turn 2

Redwood History - September 1982
Members Only Party 
We met at the Cattlemen's in Petaluma for the 5th annual Hare and Hound Rally, expertly organized by John & Sandy Fitzgerald.  The festive atmosphere was dampened slightly when Jim Gibson ran over the hare!  His ears were mangled but he still managed to "plop" so the Rally continued.  It was our first Rally ever and just as we were sure we were completely lost we found ourselves at the lovely Samuel P. Taylor Park.
With about 2 minutes to recover from the rally, we were introduced to Funkana, created by Hank Malter, Bill Porsche 356 at funkana Lucas and crew.  Now I know why only members are invited to this event, nobody else would believe the craziness that goes on.  The Funkana was driving in circles, spelling "Porschse" wrong, whistling while eating crackers, backing up and stopping on a dime.  Some of those die hard competitive types event took it seriously!

Election Annoucement

vern rogers headshot 2011 by Vern Rogers

  Well, it is still that time of year when a young man's (or woman's) fancy runs toward thoughts of being elected to the Redwood Region Board of Directors.  What?...  you're laughing again?

  But seriously, it is the duty of the most Recent Past President of the Region (me) to begin shaking the bushes looking for those members who not only understand that PCA runs on volunteers, but also want to contribute to a club that brings them so much fun and enjoyment throughout the year.

  President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer are all board positions that require election each year.  Any and/or all of these provide an excellent opportunity to give back to your club.  Please contact me, Vern Rogers, at either, or 415-420-9567 if you have an interest in running for one of these positions.

  These are just the elected members of the board.  If you are interested in serving in one of the appointed positions instead, that opportunity can also be available.  Appointed positions include: Safety Director, Goodie Store Director, Event Director, Sponsorship Director, Autocross Director, Membership Director, Social Media Director, Concours Director, Newsletter Editor, and now Webmaster. 

  Over the entire time that I have been a PCA and Redwood member,  Barbara McCrory has selflessly given of her time to manage the Region Website.  THANK YOU BARBARA!  She will be retiring from this position at the end of December, and we are in great need of a member to jump into this role.  The Region Website has become the tool of choice for many of you to get info on club activities and connect to our sponsors.  If you have an interest in filling this crucial role for our club, please let me know.  Training will be provided.

  Your last opportunity to throw your hat in the ring for an elected office is Sunday, October 25 at our Redwood Region Annual Members meeting.

  As I stated many times when I was President, we always welcome member input and suggestions for events.  You may contact me or any other Board member with these.

That's all for now... down the road.


Maple Creek Winery Tour
kurt fischer headshot
by Kurt Fischer  

 A beautiful Saturday morning in the best time of the year in Northern California; September and 50 crazy Redwood Region members ready to tackle the back roads of Sonoma County on our way to Maple Creek Winery.
  Leaving our standard meeting place; Kaffe Mocha... heading  west and then north past numerous wineries until we reach the Mac Murray Winery on Westside road and coming to a complete halt...seems this is Taste of Sonoma weekend and Mac Murray is parking cars in their field and as it turns out...2500 people were there!  It took us about 15 minutes to inch past the entrance, and we were set free on the rest of our journey with little or no traffic.


  Our Past President, Vern Rogers, who missed our departure from Kaffe Mocha suddenly appears in front of me on West Dry Creek.  Seems he was sent our route via smartphone and took a guess where we might be...ah the wonders of new technology!  Vern falls into line behind me and off we go!
  A brief stop in Cloverdale for a bio break and off westward on California Highway 128 for our 18 mile drive to Maple Creek.  128 is one of our most scenic Northern California drives and especially for Porsches!  Along the way we see a new Carrera Cab with his engine cover up and waving to us as we pass...he was not in our group, and it turns out that he had a broken radiator hose!  Note to all wasserpumper drivers...carry a spare radiator hose! 
  Up the newly paved road to the tasting room and there smiling and cooking our chicken breasts are Paige and Eileen Gaines, our volunteer BBQer's!  We park on the side of the road and bring our dishes to the table outside the tasting room..ready for lunch!  Inside the tasting room, Houston, our Maple Creek guy is pouring and talking up the Maple Creek wines... with 50 people in the cool tasting room!  Bruce and Cheryl Lawton (from Pech Merle Winery) jump behind the bar helping out Houston.  Nothing like 50 Redwine Region members clamoring for tastes!


  The food...damn..we have good cooks in the Region...we fill our plates and sit outside under a huge oak tree and talk about the route, the weather and various other lies and gossip...this group is not short of words!
  Many thanks to Maple Creek for their wonderful setting, superb wines and general hospitality for our 3rd visit to their mountain side winery retreat! We will be back!

Annual Pool Party 2015
kurt fischer headshot
by Kurt Fischer

  What a weekend...Saturday; Tour to Maple Creek and now, Sunday at the Bergman's for our 6th and last time basking the warmth of the stunning Bergman Estate and their salt water pool!
  I arrive along with Vern Rogers, Craig Steele and President Mike Hinton at 10:30 AM to help with the setup of tables and chairs brought by our caterer, Randy Apel.  We move lawn furniture back... and set up tables for six with checkered flag table coverings... how apropos!
  Randy's standard fare...tri tip, chicken breasts, Caesar salad, pasta with pesto and of course the cookies await our members that will arrive at 12:00 noon.  We park the Porsches on John's driveway that can hold up to 60 cars, today only 15 cars, an easy fit.


  The members arrive; bottles of wine and coolers with beer in's going to be a hot day....90 plus F.  Shorts and bathing suits, towels and sunscreen are present and accounted for!  We are ready for a day of fun in the sun!
  Just after 1:00 PM, the dinner bell rings and into the poolside cabana where food is set up, troop the members. Randy is waiting...knife in hand to slice the tri tip and kibitz with everyone...he does have a great personality.
  Tables are filled up  with hungry people and of course the banter at the tables covers everything under the HOT sun:)  Randy has enough food for all... and with seconds!  This crowd eats and eats!
  After lunch...the bathers are into the warm 80 plus degree salt water pool.  Remember in the old swimming after eating...for at least 2 hours...that's ancient history!  John's water toys are present and the fun begins!
  At the end of the day as the landscaping around the pool offers shade, about 10 of us sit at the picnic tables and talk of all the fun time the Redwood Region has had John and Wynne's home...sadly this was our final time at the Bergman Estate as they have sold this wonderful home and are moving in October...the last hurrah has happened! 
  Many thanks to John and Wynne Bergman for their gracious offering of this delightful home. .  We will miss this place and wish the Bergman's the best in their new home!  For all of you that missed this have missed a Redwood Region legend!

Red Puma driving shoes in as new condition. Size 10 - but Puma's run
small and narrow so you would have to try them on to see if they work
for you (they do not fit me any longer)!

These shoes are NOT FIREPROOF and cannot be used for competition, but would be good for autocross. If they fit, they are yours for free.

I have one spare, authentic BBS LM wheel for sale. It is 18" x 9.5" et55 with standard 5x130 Porsche bolt pattern. It fits perfectly as a rear wheel on 986 Boxsters, but also can work on 993 and 996 narrow body models. New these wheels run close to $1000 each plus shipping and sales tax. They are also made to order and take time for delivery. These wheels are period appropriate to '90s and early '00s Porsches and are considered by many as the most desirable aftermarket wheels.

Spec: 1 Rear Wheel: 18" x 9.5" et 55
Condition: Like-New and never mounted. There are two small knicks in the lip from being moved around in storage, otherwise it is pristine and clean enough to eat off of.  Price: $500 OBO (+ shipping and PayPal fees if not local)

Local buyers with cash-in-hand preferred (SF Bay Area), but I am willing to ship these at the buyer's expense. Contact me at or 510-882-6745.
