Another SVR Video has been Released 
Eduardo Ortega, Jr. has released the video that was shown at the SVR 60th Anniversary event. It is about 20 minutes long and features a history of the region. Check and see if your photo is in it. Check it out at
This year is almost over --- time flies 
·      The last SVR AX of the season is on Saturday, November 12th. This means that you had better bring some warm clothes and jackets.
·      The Christmas Party on December 10th has a Roaring 20's theme and Mardi Quain has received a number of questions. She and Deb Dunn want everyone to know that the "dressing up" is absolutely optional" and is not required to have a great party experience. But if you do want a 'costume look' it can be as simple a a period hat (I am thinking about a red gambler's hat) or spats for the guys or the ladies can consider a feather boa, head piece or string of pearls. Or you can go for the full period dressing. And remember there will be gambling tables.
·      There is some talk of a tour to the snow that would hopefully bring out the SUV owners. Stay tuned.
·      The annual Planning and Pizza meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 5th at the Round Table in Folsom (Greenback Lane). You can always schedule your event in advance by contacting our Vice President, Sally Boeck ( 
Rennsport Reunion VII 
·      Tickets are now on sale at
·      The event is next September………September 28 to October 1 at Laguna Seca.
·      This event celebrates the 75th anniversary of Porsche.
·      This same event in 2018 at Laguna Seca drew over 80,000 people over 4 days.
·      Expect to see some changes at the facility. They are doing some major changes over the next 6 months (mostly to update the infrastructure  --- you will be greeted by a new bridge that will efficiently accommodate pedestrians and cars between parking/hospitality and the race paddock, and a new track surface).
·      The Porsche Coral tickets (with 4 day ticket purchase required) are SOLD OUT!
·      Also SOLD OUT are the various packages (Champions Cub, Legends Club, and Premier Pit Row Suites).
·      Everything else is still available: 4-day tickets; individual day tickets; general RV camping; Tent camping; preferred parking
·      And of course you need to find some room accommodations.
·      And PCA (Zone 7) will be looking for volunteers to help out with some of the activities during the 4 days.

SVR Elections Are Here!!

It is that time of year when you get to exercise your right to vote for the 2023/24 SVR Board of Directors.

This year, along with the National Election that gets far more attention than our humble one for SVR, you get to choose the next board officers for the next two years. That is different than before as the bylaws have changed to a two-year term with the option to run for a second term. That reduces the times the club must new seek candidates and go through the election process for the entire board. The new year also reduces the members of the Board to six elected and one appointed position, to streamline the functioning of the club.

To vote, go to the SVR website
and click on the Ready to Vote link.

OR use these links

Once there, fill in your name and PCA Membership number. If you don’t remember your number contact Steve Long, the Membership Director by emailing Select the membership type, both Primary and Affiliate can and should vote for the candidates. To vote for a candidate select the drop-down arrow on the right side to fill in the official candidate. If you wish you may select a write in candidate in the box immediately below the candidates. Keep in mind that person must be willing to serve on the board, so be sure they want to be considered for the position.

Finally, there is a small survey we take at this time of year regarding your specific interests in the club activities. Click the “I’m not a robot” box. Don’t forget to click the Submit button at the very bottom!

The voting will last for 20 days, starting November 1, 2022 and will end November 20, 2022, so there is plenty of time to get your membership number and exercise your right to vote!

After the 25th of November the President will be notified of the results and announce the winners. That information will also be on the website.

Thank you for voting!

Happy November!
Well, the first event we have on our calendar for this month is an oldie, but goodie. The Mendocino Tour, put on by our very own SVR President, Rik Larson, is November 4, 5, and 6. We’re hoping for a scenic drive over to the coast, good kite flying weather, and, of course, good food.
Also this first weekend of the month is the Saturday Breakfast at Brookfield’s in Rancho Cordova (November 5). If you plan on going, it would be a nice idea to let Jerry Alter know you plan to attend.
November 12 is the last autocross in our autocross series for this year. Yes, #10! If you have been enjoying autocrossing this year, please be sure to thank John Leet and his crew for all their work all year long. These events take quite a bit of time and effort to ensure the event is fun and safe for all who attend.
Also this month, we have an event of interest on the 27th. Each year, local car clubs (including SVR) go to the California Auto Museum to decorate Christmas trees. Each car club has one or more trees they adorn with car club related decorations (SVR has multiple trees). Afterward, there is a potluck dinner. If you plan to attend, please contact Kim Nelson, and bring a salad or side dish to contribute to the dinner.
And, don’t forget SVR’s Christmas Party-it comes up quick on Saturday, December 10. It’s a 1920’s Christmas Costume Party at Sierra View Country Club in Roseville. See Below In The Drifter for more details.
Happy Thanksgiving,
Christmas Tree Decorating and Potluck
At the California Auto Museum 
Sunday, November 27th starting at 2:00 pm

The California Auto Museum’s annual Christmas Tree Decorating Party and Potluck is a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season with your friends and an opportunity to meet many new people in the club as well as other Automobile enthusiasts.

This year the event is being hosted for the Museum by SVR and 356CAR so we are hoping for a great turnout from our members. Our club has two Christmas trees to decorate and we have a lot of ornaments from past years. However, we would love to see more ornaments that you have made. An ornament showing your car and/or yourselves is a great way to show the 1000’s of people that pass through the Museum during the Holiday Season just what a great car club we have.

We will trim the trees beginning at 2:00 pm, followed by the Potluck at 4:00 pm. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to share with the other car clubs. For SVR they are asking our members bring a Side Dish or Salad for the Potluck. The Museum will be providing the main dish of Turkey and Ham as well as coffee, utensils and other paper products. They will also have a cash bar. Please do not plan on bringing hot food as with such a large Potluck it is difficult to keep everything warm.

A highlight of this event every year is the Door Prize Raffle and they generally have some very nice gifts.

If you plan on joining the fun this year, please RSVP Kim Nelson at by Monday, November 21st.

We hope to see you there.

2022 Long Creek Winery Tour
by Tracy Nations

Ernie Bulhoes

Another fabulous October day was in store for the second Long Creek Winery tour hosted by the Bulhoes’ and the Nations’, with a total of 17 cars. The tour started at Porsche of Rocklin in two groups. The Nations’ lead the first group with the Dunn’s, Willis’s, Robert Hrabak, Almassy’s, Wong’s, new member Jonathan Harbour in his 2006 white Cayman S, and Frank and Anne Preisig as sweeper car.
The second group lead by the Bulhoes’ then the Haener’s, Weyland Fat, Hoffman’s, Majetich’s, and new member Nichil Pantpratinidhi in his 2022 shark blue Cayman, and the Fong’s in their Macan. The sweeper car of this group was the Wolf’s.
The route meandered thru the foothills up to Auburn then on to Grass Valley going west down Highway 20 to our rest stop in Penn Valley. We then proceeded on Highway 20 across the Bear River, turning North. The roads took us through the long curvy and hilly countryside going into Oroville and reaching the Long Creek Winery.
The winery is owned and operated by Mike and Cheryl Phulps who purchased the parcel above the winery as they had been to the house when it was being built and fell in love it. Mike was doing some iron work around the house when it was being built. They kept an eye on it through the years and when it came up for sale in 2018 they purchased it. When the winery came up for sale a year later they jumped at the opportunity to purchase the 25 acres of grapes, mandarins, and olives. The property has been developed into an event venue with about 4000 sq ft open space adjacent to the tasting room and an open air gathering place for outside weddings. There is even the perfect grassy knoll for parking our beloved Porsches. 
Upon arrival there were hors d’oeuvres and wine tastings, water and sodas before a lunch of turkey and roast beef sandwiches pesto salad, chips and chocolate chip cookies. The lunch and hors d’oeuvres were prepared by Cheryl’s niece and her husband, Chef’s Fonzie and Abbi VillGomez. The wine was being poured by Mike’s brother and sister in law Randy & Lucy Phulps. We want to thank Long Creek Winery for a wonderful destination gathering place. Thank you to this truly family affair! 
After lunch having been served, there was socializing, more responsible wine tasting with friends and new acquaintances as well as wine purchases made. Departure was at everyone’s own timeline and route back home.

Ernie and Wendy, Janice and I want to thank all those that participated to make our second PCA tour to the Long Creek Winery a grand success.

Caffeine and Porsches at the
California Auto Museum
By Jerry Alter, Kim Nelson
Photo, Kim Nelson

Saturday, October 15th marked the 4th Caffeine and Porsches event jointly put on by 356CAR and SVR in the last two years. The first two in 2021 were held at Fat’s restaurants in Folsom and Roseville and the two this year were at the California Auto Museum.

You couldn’t have asked for better weather with blue skies and the temperature hovering between 75 and 85. This time around we had about 100 Porsches show up and they represented just about every model from every year. 356’s showed up in abundance with Speedster’s, Roadsters, Coupes and Cabriolets. Interestingly, with the recent increase in popularity of the 914 we were surprise to see only one example – a beautifully prepared 1975. We were also very pleased to see a 924 Turbo attend all decked out in Paris Dakar Rally guise.   Air-cooled and water-cooled 911’s in every color and combination, from base models to GT3 RS’s were displayed as well as a Panamera and Taycan!

Once again Dick MacFarlane provided music for the event and decorated the parking lot with his many colorful flags and banners.  Thank you Dick! Seth Owen, who is the Northern California Territory Manager for Hagerty Insurance, set up his booth and provided Hagerty swag and the Coffee and Donuts. Thank you Seth!  We also want to thank the club members who help getting all the cars parked safely and making sure that at the end of the day we left the area as clean or cleaner than when we arrived. Kirk Bradford has helped with every Caffeine and Porsches event and has become the “de facto” leader of the volunteers.  In addition to Kirk we want to thank Mike Gabbard, Kurt Campbell, Jim McMahen, David and Mary Borden and Al Price. Without all of this help, these event just wouldn’t be possible to put on!

From our perspective, the best part of our Caffeine and Porsche events is seeing all the Porschephiles gather and spend the morning together talking and looking at all the beautiful new and old Porsches on display.

National Executive Council Elections: 
You should have recently received a ballot in the mail for the election of the 2023-2024 PCA Executive Council nominees. The nominees are; Aaron Ambrosino, president, Ron Gordon, vice president, Todd Benz, secretary, and Richard Strahota, treasurer. You can find their candidate statements in the October Panorama starting on page 126.

After serving PCA on a national level for nearly 20 years, 3 board members will be stepping down, Cindy Jacisin, executive vice president, Caren Cooper, past president, and Craig Kugler, treasurer. I would like to personally thank the 3 EC members who are stepping down for their years of service to PCA. Under your leadership, PCA has thrived. Tom Gorsuch, will continue his service on the executive council as past president.
Upcoming National Event: 
UnStock is being presented by PCA National as a gathering for modified Porsche cars and will be held on November 13, 2022 in Burbank, California. Organizers expect more than 125 modified Porsches to be on display. If you would like to display your car go to: for show car registration. There is no fee for spectators. 
October Zone 7 Concours Events:
October was a very busy month with 3 concours events scheduled. The first event on October 2nd was hosted by Redwood Region at the Sonoma County Plaza in downtown Sonoma. Due to concerns about large gatherings and Covid, the original site at Ledson Winery had a change of heart about hosting the club for this event. Not to worry, concours chair, Kurt Fischer, got moving and was able to secure the Sonoma County Plaza location. Though the site was restricted to only 40 cars total, the event was sold out and provided a beautiful back drop for the carefully prepared Porches that signed up to be judged.

Participants arrived before sunrise to secure their display parking and start on the finishing preening of their cars. This included a thorough wipe down of the exterior, cleaning of the windows, detailing the wheels and a final inspection of the interior prior to the start of judging. Awards were handed out to all first-place finishers in their class and second and third place finishers were acknowledged by the crowd for their efforts.

The second concours event of October 16th was hosted by Diablo Region at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville. There were 43 cars registered to be judged and an outstanding turnout of over 55 cars that registered for display only. The display included 13 40th Anniversary 911’s are resplendent in their GT Silver exterior and special badging. There were also four 40th Anniversary Edition registered to be judged in the concours.

I think that this assembly of special edition Porsches was a unique occurrence for any region in PCA! The morning was overcast and quite chilly but when the judging started, the sun broke out and temperatures warmed. A big thank you to all the participants and special thanks go to Marc Giammona and his volunteers for a great event and of course to Porsche Livermore for their sponsorship.

The last concours event in October was held on October 30th after this column was submitted for publication. It will be the last concours in the Zone series that consisted of 7 events. I will report on the event in my column for December.

The final concours event of the season will be held at Porsche Fremont and hosted by Loma Prieta region. It will be held on Sunday, October 30th. Look for reporting on the event in my December 2022 column.

Zone Autocross Series Update;
The final two autocrosses of the Zone 7 series were held on the weekend of October 22nd to 23rd at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California. Sacramento Valley Region hosted the event on Saturday with 45 cars competing for top time of day, personal bests and Zone 7 year- end awards. The competition was quite fierce in several very competitive races in P05 with 3 drivers competing for year end awards, P06 with 3 drivers, and O04 with 6 drivers competing for coveted year end awards.

Top time of day was held by Monty Pack who had strategized a tire management scenario to make sure he still had enough tread on his Porsche GT3 to get through the two-day event. He took 3 runs and had secured the TTOD with a time of 36.646 as well as class win. Not to be out gunned,

Drew Powers competing in P04 and in second place most of the day claimed top time on day on his final run with a time of 36.453. It was a hat trick and no doubt influenced by Drew’s exceptional driving skills. Finishing out the top five times of the day were Rem Marinus driving his 2015 Porsche GT3 with a time of 36.880, Dave Dunwoodie driving his 2016 Porsche GT4, 37.222 and RJ Harrison driving his 2012 Carrera S with a time of 37.489. A great day of friendly competition with fabulous fall weather and clear skies.

The final autocross of the Zone series was held on Sunday and featured essentially the same course as used on Saturday with a few modifications to allow the drivers to run an enduro style autocross. Two laps around the course!
