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

President's Report for February 2016
After our usual Holiday hiatus, it's time to get back to business.  Originally, I had every intention to make this report about the many things that have happened since my last report, like the very successful (in my opinion) Holiday Party at the Flamingo, or the awesome One One Fun Run on New Year's Day.
Circumstances have required a different direction.  It may not be apparent to most of you who receive this report, but our Club is facing difficult times.  At our Calendar meeting in December, our Board, led by Craig Steele (who is acting as the event director in addition to his Vice-Presidential duties), outlined an ambitious calendar of events for 2016, which would include our traditional brunch runs, winery tours, autocrosses, concours, etc.
I fully support the slate of events scheduled for 2016.  However, I fear that the Club will not be able to execute that slate as currently scheduled.  Not to put too fine a point on it, but the Club simply does not have the commitment from enough members to make that slate a reality.
As your President, I'm blessed to have an extremely hard-working Executive Council - I simply could not do my job without the efforts of Craig, Chip, Jerry, and Vern.  But I also see the tremendous amount of effort that my EC, along with other members who organize our autocross events, and maintain our website, for example, invest in keeping this club alive, and it simply is not sustainable.  All members who are active in organizing and executing Club events are volunteers, and we all have many other commitments aside from the PCA. 
My EC and I are committed to continue the Redwood Region's tradition of hosting quality events that benefit all of our members.  That said, we cannot do it alone.  Honestly, unless we can enlist some of you who are not currently active, in the planning and execution of events, I see no alternative other than to simply reduce the number of events that the Club sponsors each year.  That's not the result I desire, and I suspect that you would agree as well.
So, let this message be a plea to those of you who have not been involved to date, or who have been active in the past.  WE NEED YOU!  Not only to be involved in events, but also as future leaders of this Club.  My EC, the current active volunteers, and I can't do it without your participation.  The EC and I are always available to assist any of you who want to get involved in any capacity.  Call or email us - our contact information follows:
Mike Hinton - President, 707-963-7827,
Craig Steele - Vice-President, 707-953-1100,
Chip Witt - Secretary, 707-481-8804,
Jerry Gladstone - Treasurer, 707-525-8623,
Vern Rogers - Past President, 415-420-9567,

From the Editor

by Jamie DeRuiter, der Riesenbaum Editor

  Last year was my first year as the editor of der Riesenbaum.  I was pretty nervous about taking on the job as editor since I've never done anything like it before.  I loved reading the dR and when I noticed it was not being published I asked about it.  Then they asked me if I'd like to be the one to do it.  I pondered it for almost half the day and then decided I'd give it a go.  I met with Jerry Gladstone and Barbara McCrory at Jerry's home and they went over some of the ins and outs of publishing the dR with me.   I came away from that meeting excited and even more nervous since now I'd made the big commitment.  April of last year was my first attempt at publishing the dR and boy was it fun to see that first one published.  I want to give a HUGE thanks to Barbara McCrory without whom I wouldn't have been able to put the dR together.  Thank you Barbara!  

  This year I have the privilege of having Chip Witt helping me out with some of the stuff Barbara used to do for me.  With his help I was able to tackle some of the things I felt only Barbara could do for me before.  Thanks for being in my corner Chip and giving me confidence when I needed it.

  One of the areas we've traditionally published has been the 'Redwood History' section.  You'll notice there is no said section in this months dR.  I was hoping some of our readers could help me out in this area.  I'm relatively new to the group going on my sixth year in the region so I don't have much history to reflect upon.  If you feel like writing something for me that you feel like sharing please do and send it to me at  I'd love to share your moments/memories with the group about our region.

  We have the crab feed coming up this month which promises to be a great event.  We are looking forward to our first Social Mixer with new members and significant anniversary members on March 2nd and then my favorite which is our first autocross of the year.  I'm challenged with a small budget this year and am hoping to come up with some street racing tires so I can smash some cones this spring.  Also coming up is our Whale to Whale Tail Rallye which I've attended before with my son.  If you have never done this event I can promise you it's a ton of fun!

  El Nino is giving way to spring flowers and green hills.  Soon enough it will be perfect driving weather.  I can't wait!

Shift Toward Adventure,


My 912 and I turned 50 in January

Rolex 24

by Rod Moore

The 24 Hours of Daytona has been on my bucket list for a longtime. Sports car racing began as the Continental in 1962 and evolved into the 24 hour race. I remember reading about sports car racing at Daytona when I was a kid and always wanted to see it.  Last fall, I decided to attend the 54th running of the race. It was a great time to go, Daytona had just completed a $400M upgrade to the facility.  Among the many upgrades are a new Fan Zone in the infield and the installation of new seats all with seat backs.
I was not familiar with the track and wanted to make sure I knew all my options.  I looked at the Rolex 24 web site but needed more information. I was confident that someone at PCA could help me. I contacted the President of the Citrus Region and she provided me info and suggested different vantage points.  She was very enthusiastic about the event and that got me even more pumped up about the race.   
The corral

Porsche team drivers

When I arrived on Friday, my first impression was how huge the facility is and how steep the 31 degree banking is. It made me think about how great it must have been to see and hear 917's on the banking in 1970 or at the 3rd Rennsport Reunion.
I took a tram into the infield and spotted the Porsche corral.  It was centrally located in the infield, with a grandstand at one edge of the corral. I essentially used the corral as a base of operations. I started out there in the morning with a cup of coffee and later came back to sit and watch some of the race on a TV.  Although I didn't know anyone, I felt very much at home and talked to several people and of course there were a lot of cool cars to look at.  It was just like being in the corral at Laguna Seca.
On Saturday before the start the corral featured a Q&A with the factory drivers, I later had them autograph pictures of the two 911 RSR factory cars, taken by a vendor on Thursday in the rain. The club held a number of presentations, tours and held raffles for Hot Pit tours. The race started 2:40 PM and ended at 2:40 on Sunday. Before the start, I walked up the 18 degree banking at the start finish line, even that felt quite steep. 

During the race I moved around to different vantage points. I especially liked turn 4 where you could see the cars transitioning from the infield to the banking. Many fans went to restaurants across the street for dinner and followed the race on TV, returning later to watch the race a night. Watching the race in the dark is a totally different experience. One thing that is especially noticeable is the red glow of the brakes.  
My first stop Sunday was the corral for coffee. When I got there a PCA rep alerted me  that a raffle for a Hot Pit tour was about to begin.  I got my ticket just in time and was thrilled when I was one of the winners of the Hot Pit tour.
During our briefing for the tour, the IMSA guide warned us that most of the crews had no sleep and tensions ran high with a couple of hours to go. The tour took us to the back of pit tents where you could see the Porsche engineers and crew monitoring the cars via a host of computer screens. One of the factory drivers was watching the telemetry before beginning his shift. The guide found an empty slot and positioned us right on the pit wall near the Corvette team, we saw their cars come in for fuel & tires. What an experience! The tour was the highlight of my trip.

Driver waiting for his shift

After leading the race most of the night the two Porsche team cars fell back and the last few hours were led by the yellow Corvettes. They came in 1st and 2nd in the GTLM category while a factory Porsche on the lead lap came in 3rd.  The overall winner was a Honda powered Liger prototype.
When I left the corral for the last time I briefly spoke with the Zone 12 rep who seemed to be working the whole weekend. I said I'm from the Redwood Region and I appreciate your hospitality. I attended the race with a childhood friend from NY, he later told his wife that the Porsche people were very friendly.
My bucket list trip exceeded all my expectations. I sure wish  I could go to the next race at Sebring in March.   However, the race at Laguna Seca in April is more realistic.

by Craig Steele

It is seldom in event planning that you find an event that is tailor made for someone else. I was tasked by the Redwood Region membership to plan a weekend tour to the gold county as one of our 2016 events. Then Barbara McCrory, our retired Webmaster, forwarded me a flyer about the SVR Crab 36 event. I was so impressed with the schedule and the venue that I contacted Kim Nelson, one of the co-chairs. He invited me to their January planning meeting. I met some 40+ SVR members wanting to put on an outstanding Porsche Party. This event has lots of history and it has been 5 years since the last one. I plan to continue in their planning sessions.
I want to get twenty Redwood Region members to join me and drive to this event.  We would caravan form Novato to Jackson on Friday afternoon, May 13th.   This is as close to a mini Porsche Parade as you can get in our own back yard. Check out the event schedule, you can't do it all. There is also RV parking and Families are welcome.
If you want to attend, here's what you need to do:
  • Registration opens on 2/15 on Sacramento Valley Region website, register as early as you can, that when you get a car number for the events
    • o
    • o   All-Inclusive cost is $175 per couple, $95 per single
    • o   After March 31st rates increase to $185 and $100
    • Lodging is separate, Sac Valley has a blocked of rooms at the Jackson Best Western for $85/night. There will be a list of local lodging on the Crab36 website, don't wait - make your reservation early.
Please join me on Friday, May 13

One One Fun Run
by Brenda Hinton

Well that was fun !  January 1st, 2016 was a brilliant day for a Fun Run and 30+ intrepid souls turned out early in Novato for a spirited drive through West Marin and Sonoma counties. Beautiful sunshine, a little cold, a bit of red gravel  (sorry, that's what happens when there are icy mornings out west), not too many bikes, and 22+ Porsches enjoying a Saturday drive about.  A few folks met us at the Hamburger Ranch in Cloverdale for good food, great wine (thanks Gary Bayless - who shared from his own vintage!) and great people !!  Folks came all the way from Redwood City to Laytonville and of course Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties to join us. Our 1/1 Fun Runs are becoming legendary - or perhaps we're just the only ones getting up early on New Years - and a few joined us from other regions, GGR, LPR, SVR to name a few.  We were especially honored to have John D'Angelo attend in his 60th Anniversary GTS Club Coupe.  His experience winning the car was in the December issue of our Panorama.  A great day and a FUN start to a New Year of Porsches and Friends. Doesn't get much better than that.
John's Club Coupe

Field Stone Winery

The Redwood Region has now done a fabulous tour to the Field Stone winery three years in a row.  Those who have attended remember that this is always a great time and the staff, volunteers, food and wine have all been wonderful.  Our membership now has an easy opportunity to show Field Stone how much we appreciate their hospitality and love their wine.

New Zone 7 Representative!

Happy New Year to All,
I wanted to introduce myself as the new Zone 7 Rep. I will be taking over for Paul Czopek, who has moved to Arizona. The Zone 7 banquet for 2015 will be held on Feb. 27th, 2016 at Dave & Buster's in Milpitas.  All are welcome to join us for a fun evening of awards and a bit of non-driving competition. Please note, the Zone Website will be undergoing some updating over the next few months. I hope this will make it easier for all to find info on Zone events. With the new year comes the Zone Autocross School to be held on March 26th and 27th, 2016 at Marina. Also, mark your calendars now for Sacramento Valley Region's CRAB weekend May 13th -15th,2016. This will be a multi-event weekend with something for everyone from concours, rally, autocross and of course, a crab feed.  Hope to see you at an event soon.

Autocross #1  March 12th



Book Review: Porsche Turbo by Randy Leffingwell

by Jerry Gladstone, Redwood Region Treasurer
It must have been around 1976 when I saw my first Porsche Turbo. Someone in my neighborhood would drive by every morning in his grey Turbo with that magnificent whale tail wing. I sure did want one, wanted one bad. But, alas I never did get to own one of those beasts then or now.
My interest in all Porsches of the turbo variety was at least partially sated  by Randy Leffingwell's new book: "Porsche Turbo, The Inside Story of Stuttgart's Turbocharged Road and Race Cars."  This is another one of Mr. Leffingwell's outstanding books about Porsches with high quality photos, renderings and diagrams - a visual pleasure. The history and evolution of the turbo in racing to the first road cars is meticulously detailed . For the mechanically minded, there are explanations of how turbos and their various components work.
Being about turbos, much of the book is devoted to racing in all its forms including Porsche's F1 efforts. Road car turbos from the very first 930 through the 2016 991 cars are chronicled in detail. This is a book that belongs in every Porsche enthusiast's collection, especially with Porsche going all turbocharged next year.
The book costs $60 and is well worth it, but the publisher has offered us a club discount of 50%. Shipping will be free if we buy 3 or more copies. If there is enough interest we can place a group order as we have done for two other books these last couple of years. The cost to Club members would be $35 which includes sales tax and MSR fees. Please let us know if you have interest and we will produce a signup MSR.

2015 Annual Treasurer's Report to the Membership

Redwood Region's 2015 fiscal year concluded with a net gain (income) of $1,707.31 - an excellent result considering  our purchase of a brand new autocross trailer and its outfitting accessories. The major reason for this good result was once again the generous total subsidy from PCA National ($12,483.50); although that sum was $1,124.50 less than in 2014. We ended the year with $50,436.13 in liquid assets distributed as $30,726.54 in unrestricted checking, $1,582.39 in the autocross reserve, $7,576.66 in a money market account and $10,550.54 in a certificate of deposit. Total liabilities are the current $4,599.82 in charges on the Redwood credit card.
We donated $6,175.00 to CASA, $1,000.00 to the Valley Fire Relief Fund and $200.00 to the Point Arena Lighthouse Preservation Fund; the subsidy for the Holiday Party was $2,295.42. Our socially-oriented events approximately broke even as per design; any excess funds collected were earmarked for CASA (included in the donation noted above) . Total fees for the use of were $1,165.44 in total (general events and autocross combined).  Goodie Store inventory exited 2015 at $1,425.89; there was $65.00 in profit on $704.22 in sales.
There was a $3,755.69 net loss on the 2015 autocross series mostly attributable to the purchase of the new trailer at $8,366.28. Without the trailer purchase autocross would have shown a gain of $4,610.59. Included in these figures are $2,814.92 in other autocross expenses:  additional timing equipment, radios, trailer outfitting, sanitation rental fees, Zone 7 autocross assessments, awards and airport badge fees.
Redwood Region exited the year in a favorable cash position with $1,707.31 more (which was our net income for the year) than in 2014.
