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

  Well, we just wrapped up a jam-packed month of September, and early October for Porsche events.  In the past five weeks, I've attended a winery tour, two autocross events (in different cars), a concours, and the three-day extravaganza that was Rennsport Reunion V at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

  The autocross events included my favorite event of the year - the Emmett Wilder Enduro Autocross.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the "enduro" event, it differs from our typical events by featuring two three-lap "enduros" in the afternoon, instead of single-lap runs.  I've always found the multi-lap format useful for refining and improving driving techniques, because it's easy to remember how you handled certain sections of the course a mere 40 seconds ago.  This year's event was no exception, and I learned a couple of new things in my final 3-lap run that will help me and my faithful autocross companion, Barney, to go faster next year.  The only bad thing is that we won't get to test these cool new ideas again until next March!

  Although there will be other stories about Rennsport Reunion V in this issue, I wanted to add a couple of takeaways from my experience this year.  The first amazing thing was the dazzling array of historic and newer Porsche racing cars.  It's hard to describe how thrilling it is to see vintage prototypes like the 906, 908, and 917 battling it out at speed, and then later being able to marvel at the progress of race car design as the more contemporary RS Spyders and 911RSRs demonstrated their speed.

  For me, though, the most amazing thing was the number of genuinely friendly people that I met over the course of the weekend.  I was fortunate enough to be able to spend time with Rod Emory (of outlaw 356 fame), Alex Ross of Sharkwerks, and ace photographer Michael Alan Ross.  All are very skilled in their field, and are super easy-going, genuine car (especially Porsche) enthusiasts.  We also hosted a dinner on Saturday evening with 13 Region members and guests which was a great gathering.  It just goes to prove once again, that the Club is not just about cars, but about people too!

Hope to see you at an event soon!

Mike

From the Editor

by Jamie DeRuiter, der Riesenbaum Editor

  Fall is here!  First rain, thunderstorms and leaves falling from the trees.  Fall is my favorite season.  I'm not big on hot days.  I spent the last ten days getting ready for winter.  I heat my home with a wood stove so I spent many hours splitting and stacking wood these past few days.  Nothing beats the heat from a wood stove for those cold winter days.  Soon the grape vines leaves will have turned to that beautiful reddish-orange throughout my Napa valley.  This year I vow to take some good photos of my 912 amongst those leaves.

  I managed to make another couple of events last month.  One autocross and our Ledson concours event.  Both events were very fun.  One involved racing around those darned cones while the other was more of a saunter amongst beautiful cars and the lovely Ledson estate.  I learned a lot from both events.  Watching the other racers taught me how driving style influences lap times.  The concours event teaches me the fine differences between our makes and models.  Mike Hinton gave me some good tips on spotting the differences between a 1987 versus the 1988-89 model years.  Every time I attend one of our events I learn something special about our beloved Porsches whether it's how to drive them better or the fine details of one model or another.  

  We have the Monterey Bay Zone 7 concours and the famous Mendocino Tour on the horizon.  Both events are worth attending if you want to get out and have some fun.  Look for the flyers below.

  I'm sure you're all aware of the recent fire in Lake County that devastated that area.  In an effort to help our region donated $1,000 to the Valley Fire Victims Relief Fund through the Redwood Credit Union.  With winter coming these victims need all the help they can get and I'm proud our region stepped up and contributed to the relief effort.  Keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.

  It's that time in the morning when my Akita, Suki, is begging for her daily walk.  What she doesn't know is that the hot air balloon monsters are heading our way.  She really doesn't like them ever since one tried to 'get her' when they threw their drop bag out and it landed right next to her.  She must have thought it was trying to grab her.  My Porsche is giving me the same look.  I went into the garage last night and it was like my car was saying 'please drive me'.  So after I walk the dog I'm going to take my 912 for a walk up valley to stretch her legs a bit.  Don't forget to get your cars out once a week, if you can, over winter to keep them in good running order come spring adventure time.  I look forward to meeting our members at the events I'm able to attend coming up.  If you have any ideas or suggestions feel free to share with me via email.  You can find me on our website.

Shift Toward Adventure,

Jamie

Ledson Winery Zone 7 Concours d'Elegance 
 by Craig Steele, Redwood Vice-President

 
  Every fall the Redwood Region hosts the Zone 7 Concours at Ledson Winery in the scenic Valley of the Moon.  Always held on a Sunday, the Porsches to be judged start arriving at 8 am - usually getting the best location to park their car and break out all the latest and greatest cleaning supplies to ready their vehicles for the 11 am judging. James Heisey, Past President RR has been organizing this event for 15 plus years.  The event starts with registration where the owners decide in what category they want to compete between Wash and Shine to Full Car judging. 
 
Here a couple relaxes next to their 911 waiting for the judging to begin.
                          
Typically it is a team effort to get the Porsches ready for judging.  Here one of the contestants is catching up on some texts before the judging begins.
 
 The judging is team effort consisting of a head judge and three other individual judges assigned to an aspect of the car's exterior and interior. There is always one person assigned to the timer role insuring all judging take the same amount of time. There are usually several teams of judges doing the competition. Porsches have so many different vehicles to judge that some teams require special knowledge to observe and judge each Porsche fairly.  At the end of the day, all winners and runners up are announced and receive their awards. One final note is the special rivalry in the completion class between the current and past Redwood presidents. See who won this year below.
 
The head judge confers with the other judges on their assigned areas to judge and when to start timing the Porsche inspections.
                      
The head judge begins the process by doing his overall inspection of the car as the timer maintains the judging intervals.

 
When each judge completes their assignment and tallies the results, they are then given to the head judge for final review and the total points to be awarded are calculated.
                      
Not all Porsches opt for the full body judging in which every aspect of the vehicle is reviewed.  Pictured here is a 914 being judged by the full compliment of judges.

 
At the end of the day, our Redwood Region president, Mike Hinton, announced each first place winner.  They received a plaque, the judges tally sheet and a bottle of wine for the category in which they were being judged.

Here's one of the full car winners receiving his plaque for the 914 pictured above in this article.  This happens to be team Bob Schoenherr and Anita Benzing.


Handing the awards to this year's competition class winner was our current president Mike Hinton.  The winner, Vern Rogers, was our past president.  I believe the margin of victory was only a couple of points insuring these two will be back at it at the next concours to see who gets top honors.


Congratulations to all the competitors that entered their Porsches in this year's event!

Autocross #8 "Achtung!"  September 19th, 2015
 by Jamie DeRuiter 


  Finally!  It took me all season but I finally got my rear swaybar to work.  Thanks to Deven and Thorsten at Hi -Tec Automotive for making this possible.  What a blast to have full rear traction for once.  My other setup was bottoming out on my chassis causing me to lose rear traction on the opposite side in hard cornering.  Loss of traction = loss of time.  

  The course Trevor Ridgley designed was very fun indeed.  Named "Achtung!", it was obvious why the course was given this name.  You really did have to pay "attention" to keep a good line through the course especially in the back 'S' turns.  I found the crucial areas for me where entering the sweeper in the back I tried to stay as far left as possible before committing to the turn in point.  Then coming down the home stretch it was a fine balance between throttle, traction and ones line to maintain good speed throughout.  That final turn before the finish was a test of ones courage and how well one knew their vehicle's ability to correct when needed.



  We had 33 cars running the course with 10 runs total for the day.  We had 9 Boxsters making that model the go to car it seems now at autocross.  When all the runs were done the Top Time of Day (TTOD-M) for the men went to the course designer Trevor Ridgley in his '04 GT3 with an impressive time of 45.927 seconds.  The women's field was won by Vern Thomas in her '02 Boxster with a TTOD-L of 50.762.  Way to tear it up you two!

We had the pleasure of having Tristan back in action in Bill Newton's 912.  It was fun to see that combo picking apart the course.  After watching everyone drive by me at station #2 I have one observation to make.  Drew Powers driving style is similar to Tristan in the way he takes his lines through the course and how they throw their cars into that line.  Have you been coaching Drew Tristan?  I prefer to work the course so I can see how different drivers approach and attack the course hoping to glean something that can make me faster. 

  I got a kick out of hearing and watching Andrew Fox's 1971 911E targa both on and off the course.  Beautiful car Andrew.  

Andrew's 911E
Nice engine!


  


























Autocross #9 "6th Annual Emmett Wilder Enduro Autocross" October 3rd, 2015
by Craig "Iceman" Steele, Redwood Vice-President
 
 
  As summer yields to fall and our autocross season winds to October. We all look forward to the enduro event. All year we have been doing out miles courses in 35 to 45 seconds. The enduro is a change to do three laps around the course in 115-125 seconds. The weather was excellent as we spent the morning doing our single laps to prepare for two runs at winning the Emmett Wilder trophy for best male and female driver's time. It was a close battle for top times. Pictured below are the winners: Grady Carter  (center left) and Anita Benzing (center right) with their trophies, second place honors go to Trevor Ridgley and Tracy Strom  holding their AX tee-shirts.
 

 
  The morning starts with half the drivers readying their vehicles to autocross while the rest report to their course worker stations. There is a driver meeting. Grady Carter, our Redwood Region AX chair goes over all the rules and procedures to do an enduro safely.

This picture is a Porsche finishing the enduro.  Each lap is recorded and the total time is handed to the driver at the timers station

  Once in a while you witness some great recoveries or missteps. Vern Roger's 2007 Cayman was entering the Station #3 'S' lane with too much speed. He did a double  'S' fishtail without hitting a cone.  Good job, Vern said later it was blast to recovering from that incident. Here's the photos showing you how he did it.

My Rennsport V Adventure
by Craig Steele, Redwood Vice-President

 
  In 2011, I had my first Porsche (a 1999 red Carrera Cabriolet) for less than two years. Sandy, my wife and I were enjoying our PCA membership by attending most of the region's events.  We started hearing all the hype over Rennsport IV coming to Laguna Seca so we attended the event and now understand the significance of this festival that's about all things Porsche. From corrals, races, race drivers and museum displays it was all there to see. Now, moving forward to Sept 2015, Rennsport V reemerges back at Laguna Seca with bigger corrals, more racing, a lot of famous drivers and outstanding displays of past and current Porsches.
 
Here I am signing the huge Rennsport V mural, 'the Craigster was here'

 My wife wasn't able to attend this year due to her new job. My Carrera has been replaced with a 2006 black Cayman S.  The following is some of my impressions of this event. 
                          
Here is the famous 917 that raced into Porsche legend


For three days Porsches raced one another to qualify for bragging rights

 
I started my Rennsport V adventure early Friday morning parking in the Boxster-Cayman corral. I spent all day looking at over a hundred vendor offerings and displays. I then migrated to the historic pavilion full of classic Porsche racing machines. My afternoon was filled with walking through the pits seeing the all the racers trying to qualify for the Sunday finals.  I also got my Rennsport V poster and covered it with a dozen racing legends signatures. After all day walking with my friend, Ron Breeze and I headed for nice meal and a good night's rest.

  Saturday, Ron and I rolled out at 6 am to get to the track for our volunteer assignments. We got the Boxster-Cayman corral. In three hours, we guided 200 Porsches into a selected lineup. Our shift ended at 10 am so we headed for selected parts of the track. My son, Sean and his friend John met us at turn 5 to watch the races.
Between races the 918 and 911 did laps around the track. We watched at turn 6 and then walked up to the turn 8, the corkscrew. After eating the famous frog dog, we watched the fly-by of historic B-25's. I went back for more poster signatures and was disappointed it was the same racers who already signed my poster on Friday. After that, Ron and I headed home to clean up for our Redwood region dinner in Pacific Grove. We had twelve diners and lot of great food and colorful talk.

  On Sunday I was anxious to get some last great racing legends signatures. Then I attended an interview with Hurley Haywood and Jacky Ickx , the grand marshal of this event. After that event, I opted to head home and miss my parade laps. I drove up the scenic highway thinking about all the things I saw. Over 2000 Porsches in the corrals, 400 Porsches racing around Laguna Seca, all of the racing legends who drove Porsches to the podium all over the world and everything that happens with celebrating the iconic Porsche auto.

Redwood History - October 1983
In October 1983, Porschestop Corporation (no longer in existence) in Southern California organized a benefit Porsche concours at and around Hearst Castle.  Most of the events took place in Hearst Park.  Security was provided for parked cars at the hotel by state police, park rangers and private security patrols.
 
The Redwood Region Nominations Dinner Meeting was held at Deer Park Villa, Bolinas Road, Fairfax.  The "Festive Finale" to the year was going to be held in December at Charlie Bolton's Restaurant, Old Redwood Highway, Novato.
 
The Carmel Caper. . . .Relived. . . provided a retrospective on the Antique Car Races presumably the precursor to the current Historics.  Mention is made of the "dancing Ray Fiore" and a new face on the tour. . .Bob Schoenherr (all the way from Lakeport).
 
And finally, you could purchase a 1973 911S for $11,000 with lots of extras.

Puma Driving ShoesRed 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.
