April 2022 President’s Message
 
Spring has sprung! This is the best time of year to start exercising your Porsche, before summer brings out too many other cars and cyclists on our favorite Redwood Region back roads. In that vein, it seems there is a lot of pent-up enthusiasm for a drive because our first Midweek Tour in the 10 years that I have been a member was a smashing success on March 16th. Be sure to read VP Rick Duste’s article in this month’s dR about it. I personally had a fantastic time and we had our lunch destination essentially to ourselves at Rancho Nicasio. I am sure that other versions of midweek tours will be on the menu soon!
 
Rallymaster Jim Robison's Two Lake Rally closed out March just before the last rain with a gorgeous route and a wide variety of participants; see his article for more information.
 
April 9th’s tour to lunch at the Union Hotel Restaurant in Occidental happened too late to review in this dR edition, but our next treat is another new event for our club: an enhanced race day operations tour on Saturday April 16th with both Flying Lizard Racing and Porsche Motorsport hosting at Sonoma Raceway (registration is still open until April 12th). Secretary Craig Steele’s second "gimmick rally", featuring Sonoma wine pairing challenges is on Saturday April 23rd (registration is open through the 17th). His first one was a blast last fall; if you haven’t tried one, come on out!
 
May will bring us to the performance event of spring: a two-day shared Autocross weekend at Thunderhill May 14th and 15th. Registration links on MSR for each day will be up on our calendar shortly. Autocross remains the best way to safely experience your Porsche’s limits of control and the friendly competition and comradery simply cannot be beat. On Saturday May 21st Jim Robison and Jerry Wachtel have enhanced the Devils Gulch Time-Speed-Distance Rally (first run in 2021). Registration is open.
 
The Board always appreciates your input, and volunteers are what keep our club alive! Every leadership position will be open to new candidates in just six short months, so we'd love to show you the ropes now! Email us directly or attend our monthly Board meeting on Tuesday April 26th at Mary’s Pizza Shack in Novato at 7 PM. Dinner is always on the club – you just pay for your drink (Zoom will also available if you wish to attend remotely). Please see our calendar link at redwoodpca.org  for details.

Mid-Week Tour
Rick Duste
Vice President

Sun, lightly traveled roads, and 61 Porsches serpentining their way along iconic west county roads . . . what more could you ask for on a mid-March Wednesday morning? 

After convening at the Target parking lot in Petaluma, three run groups of cars headed out Bodega Highway snaking around the west Sonoma County countryside before stopping for the second regroup about 45 minutes later in the town of Tomales. A twisty drive on Highway 1 along the shores of Tomales Bay brought us to a quick restroom break in Marshall before continuing on through Point Reyes Station and ultimately turning back east at Olema.  After winding along Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Platform Bridge Rd, and circling Marin County’s surprisingly full Nicasio Reservoir, we completed our 71 mile and 1:45 drive pulling into the parking lot for the rustic Rancho Nicasio Bar and Restaurant. 
The drivers and their passengers enjoyed barbequed brisket or pulled pork sandwiches on the outdoor patio while reuniting with old friends or meeting new ones. By all accounts, a midweek drive appeared to be popular.  So watch for more in the months to come.

APPLE STRUDEL
It wasn’t that long ago that Apple hired the former Vice President of Porsche chassis development, Manfred Harrer, to help develop the Apple Car set to begin production in 2025, but a recent article from Reuters has the European press speculating that a deal may be coming together that will see Porsche build the all-electric car for the Cupertino-based electronics company. What’s more, some knowledgeable people outside of Europe seem to be fanning the fire of a Porsche-Apple partnership, as well.
 
DENZEL’S TURBO
Academy Award winner, Denzel Washington’s 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo sold last week. Many years earlier and late for a casting session at WNYC, Denzel handed the keys to an intern - Reese Witherspoon. “I had to park his Porsche. I was like, ‘Holy s**t! I can’t drive that car. First of all, I’m going to wreck it. I’d never driven a Porsche but really like – it’s a stick. I’m going to burn out his clutch. I stripped all the gears, but I didn’t crash it.” A good thing since the star’s 993 hammered at $405,993.
 
CAR-TOON
Porsche and Pixar are creating a real-life Sally Carrera from the animated movie “Cars.” The two companies are teaming up to build a brand-new 992 Porsche styled like the beloved character. The collaboration will turn the animated character into a real-life 911 painted to match Sally's blue hue featuring a revised bumper with Sally's trademark smirk for an air intake. This one-off recreation of Sally Carrera will be auctioned off by RM Sotheby's later this year, with proceeds to Girls Inc. and Ukrainian Refugees.
 
BACK TO THE FUTURE
Porsche is planning to roll out three new high-powered 911s. The first of the three is the Porsche 911 Sport Classic featuring the 911 Turbo S engine and an optional manual gearbox. The second is the 911 ST, a wider and gnarlier GT3 with the naturally aspirated GT3 engine but with even more power. Lastly, the 911 RS will get the 473 hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six from the Carrera GTS, a weight reduction package, and, of course, the iconic ducktail spoiler. No release dates at this time. We’ll keep you posted.
 
TURNKEY RACING
Porsche Motorsport will sell you a racecar. The current lineup includes: a 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport base price $229,000, a 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup starting at $269,000, and a 2020 Porsche 911 GT3 R listing for $535,000. The company will also sell its new LMDh prototype beginning next year, not yet priced. Don’t worry if you don’t have the cash. Porsche Financial Services offers financing programs.
 
DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH
A free-breathing Porsche 911 Carrera isn’t in our future. Even the base 911 Carrera is force-fed as much air as possible. Now that we know the 911 will probably never have a naturally aspirated flat-six again with the exception of the GT3 models, there is at least some good news. The Porsche 911 Hybrid has already been spotted testing on public roads, so it will be revealed soon. It will even be faster than the current Porsche 911 Turbo S. The combination of hybridization and the use of a newly developed synthetic fuel should keep the 911 emissions-friendly for years to come.
 
PANAMERA UNPLUGGED
Porsche is going heavy on EVs, but the 2023 Panamera will receive upgraded mild-hybrid versions of its current twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 and 4.0-liter V8 engines tweaked to meet the upcoming Euro 7 emissions regulations. The Cayenne will likely keep its combustion and hybrid versions alongside an electric one. Porsche has ruled out building an electric 911 this decade and may have saved ICEs with synthetic eFuel for its internal combustion engines by 2030.

Road Trippin' 2022
Don Krieger
Redwood Region Member

The Route: The Sea Ranch, CA to Punta Gorda, FL & return – 7630 miles – 26 days - starting on Valentine’s Day

The Goal: visit our younger daughter in Punta Gorda, FL as well as having a great time getting there.
It was time to hit the road again. We got our 2013 Racing Yellow Boxster S (nicknamed “The Banana”) ready to roll (oil service and new Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 tires).
 
Pre-trip planning was extensive. We wanted to hit national and state parks as well as both well-known and very unusual sights. We always prefer to stay off interstate highways and find scenic byways. Thus we check out the following must-have books and websites: Road Trip USA , The National Geographic Guide to Scenic Highways & BywaysAmerica's Scenic Byways and Roadside America. 
Checking out each state’s travel website proved handy as well. We like to drive around 5 hours a day and make our hotel reservations for the entire trip accordingly (making sure we can cancel on short notice.)
 
Our first stop was in Carmel, and the next day staying with friends in Santa Barbara. Of course, taking Hwy 1 is required! We stopped at the Elephant Seal Vista Point just north of San Simeon where we got to see thousands of seals on the beach as peak seal mating season is around Valentine's Day!.
 
The next day was uneventful, through Palm Springs to Brawley, CA. The following morning brought us to Felicity, CA, one very weird place and the Center of the World. Continuing on, we stopped in Dateland, AZ for a date milkshake.
Then we hiked at Saguaro National Park in Tucson. After that El Paso, but not before having lunch at Nellie’s Café in Las Cruces.

All Photos by Don Krieger
One of the planned highlights of our trip was seeing Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico. But before we got there, we did some hiking in the adjacent Guadalupe Mountains National Park . The Caverns did not disappoint.  We opted to take the natural entrance, a 1.25 mile hike with a lot of switchbacks equivalent to going down a 75 story building.
 
We traveled southward to Big Bend National Park. The drive to the Santa Elena Canyon Overlook is not to be missed. The following day brought us to San Antonio, touring the Alamo, and spending the night along the Riverwalk, a wonderful 15 mile waterway running through the center of the city packed with entertainment, shopping and restaurants.
 
Lake Charles, LA was our next stop. Part of the city includes the Charpentier Historic District, located on the National Register of Historic Places. One of the must-see sights in our next stop, Mobile, AL was the Bellingrath Gardens and Home.
 
Finally getting into Florida, we first stopped at the Tallahassee Auto Museum. This museum features not only over 160 cars but also a collection of boats, outboard motors, knives, sports memorabilia and Steinway pianos! After 11 days of traveling, we finally arrived at our daughter’s home in Punta Gorda, a quiet community on the gulf side next to Charlotte Harbor with lots of activities. We toured the South West Florida Horse Rescue Center where our daughter volunteers, hiked around the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, and Manatee Park. We also took the Peace River nature cruise, allowing for viewing Dolphins and a rookery with many spoonbill storks, herons and egrets.
 
After a 3 day visit, we started our route home. First up was St. Augustine, "The Oldest City in the U.S." founded in 1565 and the location of Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth. A tour of the Castillo de San Marcos, a 17th century Spanish stone fortress, is a must. The downtown features many historic buildings and cobblestone streets.
 
Then on to Savannah, GA, a city with beautiful mid 19th century homes surrounding 22 parks and squares. A walking tour takes you around one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the country. You’ll also want to stop downtown at Leopold’s Ice Cream established over 100 years ago. Just outside of Savannah is Wormsloe State Historic Site, the colonial estate of Noble Jones, founder of the Georgia colony.
 
Now heading west, we stopped in Vidalia, GA, famous for Vidalia sweet onions, and the location of the Vidalia Onion Museum. Continuing along our route, we stopped in McRae, GA which has a nice walking tour of over 30 homes and churches of the New South era.
 
On our way to Winona, MS, we visited Tuskegee University. Founded by Booker T. Washington, it was the home of George Washington Carver and WWII’s Tuskegee Airmen. Just outside of Tuscaloosa, we toured the Moundville Archaeological Park, where 28 earthen mounds were home to ancient Native Americans, thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans.
 
Our next historic spot to visit was the Hot Springs National Park in Hot Springs, AR. But before arriving, we stopped in Leland, MS at a museum which celebrates the birthplace of Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson grew up nearby). The Hot Springs Park, established in 1916, was the site of a number of buildings "Bathhouse Row" that offered thermal waters for a variety of health cures.
 
Traveling to Shawnee, OK for our next night’s stay, we followed the Talimena National Scenic Byway, a 54 mile stretch across the Arkansas and Oklahoma borders. Unfortunately, our visibility was less than 50 feet for most of the drive. When we finally caught a break in the clouds, the views were excellent. In Shawnee, a visit to the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art displays 8000 years of art and culture from around the world.
 
The next morning as we headed to Canyon, TX, the temperature dropped to 19 degrees – our “Banana” was definitely frozen, but started right up. We drove through a freezing rainstorm much of the way. Our reason to stay in Canyon was to visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park "The Grand Canyon of Texas". The next day, the weather hadn’t warmed up much, (high of 39 degrees), so went up to Santa Fe to check out the galleries after having lunch at Café Pasqual. When is it started snowing in the afternoon, we decided to head to Albuquerque for the night.                               
 
The next morning brought a drive to Flagstaff, which has several National Monuments nearby. Before getting there, we had to “stand(ing) on the corner in Winslow, Arizona” with lunch at the RelicRoad Brewing Company. Once in Flagstaff, we visited Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater Volcano, and Wupatki, homes of the ancestral Puebloan people – all definitely worth a stop.  After Flagstaff, a night in Bakersfield, then home. 

Our grand adventure had come to a close.

AX Co-Chair

The AX season has begun! Last weekend our sister Zone 7 regions, GGR and LPR, held a Saturday/Sunday autocross event at Cow Palace. See below for Drew Powers' best run of the day.

But let's be real. Not everyone drives like Drew, even though a lot of us try! One thing that is very easy to accomplish: no matter how fast you drive, whether you can recognize an early or late apex, or if you think the "right line" is the punchline to a joke -- you'll have a blast at autocross. From beginners to the highly skilled, it's a day (or weekend) of pure excitement.

Redwood's first event is a joint weekend with the Sacramento Valley Region at Thunderhill on May 14 & 15. It's also a Zone 7 event for those chasing Zone points. Registration will open in the next week. You can attend either day or both - but since you'll be driving up there anyway, it's worth considering an overnight and participating both days. We normally have a casual group dinner on Saturday night which is always a good time.

If you want to get added to our autocross email list, just drop me a quick note and you'll be the first to know when registration opens or when dates are announced.

Zone Autocross and Concours Series

Golden Gate and Loma Prieta Regions held their first Zone Autocross events at Crows Landing just outside of Patterson, California in the Central Valley. Golden Gate hosted the event on Saturday while Loma Prieta Region hosted the event on Sunday. I was not able to attend the Saturday event but was able to attend the Sunday event where Loma Prieta Region autocross chair, David Dunwoodie and his team revised the course from Saturday and had 60 drivers competing for year end awards. Top time of day went to Drew Powers with a time of 56.662 followed by Monty Pack, Praneil Prasad, Todd Winstanley, Himanshu Patel and David Dunwoodie. Top time of day for the ladies in the competition went to Connie Lu who had a time of 59.169 and finished in the top ten overall. The weather was fabulous with clear skies and mild temperatures. If you have not been able to attend an event at Crow’s Landing, it should be on your bucket list.

Rally Report
Jim Robison
Rally Director

We finally ran the postponed Two Lake Rally in late March. With the drought, I was getting concerned we would have to change the name to the Dry Lake Rally.

Fifteen cars entered, one cancelled, and one got lost trying to find the start location. (How can you not find a Target store?) The all-paved, 100-mile route went east from Napa to Mankas Corner, a worthy destination itself, then north past Lake Berryessa and west past Lake Hennessey. That’s two lakes, right? The finish was at Mountain Mike’s Pizza in Napa.

Of the fifteen entries, seven were PCA members and eight were non-members. Five were Redwood Region members and ten were from other regions or distant locations, including one gentleman from Brooklyn New York. I guess the moral of the story is that not everyone is into rallies, but those who are, are willing to travel a great distance to participate in one.

Brad Call (driver) and Tom Morstein-Marx (navigator) came in first in a 2016 Mazda Miata. Judy Stocker and Andy Stocker took second in a 2022 Subaru Forrester. Jekaterina Vilutiene and Zilvinas Vilutis finished third in their 2013 Porsche Boxster. See photo below.

The statistician in me is pleased to note that one third of the entries were Porsches and one third of the podium cars were Porsches. Also note that two-thirds of the podium cars were driven by women, only fitting in that March was Woman’s History Month.

We have a few interesting rallies in the near future.

On Saturday April 23rd Past President Craig Steele will rallymaster the Wine Pairing Rally. This gimmick rally is ideal for beginners, having a clearly defined route. Drivers will be given an alphabetical list of wineries in Sonoma County and the task will be to list them on the scorecard in the order they appear along the route. What could be easier? The route is about 66 miles long with a start in Graton and a finish in Windsor.

On Saturday May 21st Jerry Wachtel will rallymaster the second annual running of Devil’s Gulch, a time-speed-distance (TSD) rally using GPS checkpoints, the same format we used on the Two Lake Rally. Devil’s Gulch 2022 is a little over 100 miles (all paved) with a start in San Rafael (the same location used for Devil’s Gulch last year) and finish in Windsor (but not the same location as the Wine Pairing Rally).

Have you considered driving on gravel as an alternative to driving on pavement?

If so, keep June 18th open for the Alternate Route Rally.

How about a pair of rallies with an overnight stay at the Twin Pines Resort and Casino? 

Choose the There and Back Again on July 16th and 17th.

Lastly, I contacted the other nine PCA regions in Zone 7. None are currently offering rallies, either TSD or gimmick.

As I have said before, we are truly “the Region that Rallies.”
Vice President's Message
Rick Duste
Vice President

One of my main jobs is to coordinate the Region’s Events Calendar. On that subject, we have quite a bit confirmed already and much more in the planning stage.

We are continuing with our monthly road tours, some on the weekends and now a few scheduled midweek. We’ve scheduled an overnight tour the weekend of September 24th to Murphy’s in the Sierra foothills in conjunction with the Ironstone Winery Concours event.  

We have added a time-speed-distance or gimmick rally each month circulating through Sonoma and Napa counties. 

We have continued to work to establish a local venue for our autocross events ever since losing access to the Sonoma County Airport site a few years ago. Two autocross events are scheduled in conjunction with the Sacramento Valley Region at Thunderhill in Willows, and we are in the process of firming up two events at Sonoma Raceway’s paddock as well.   

Porsches on the Plaza returns June 25th as well as the Zone 7 Concours in October.  Keep checking the Region calendar on the Region website for the latest developments and additions. 

On another note, any member is welcomed, and for that matter encouraged, to attend our monthly board and committee chair meetings the last Tuesday of each month.   Your input is welcome, ideas or suggestions happily received. The overwhelmingly successful midweek road tour we recently hosted was the result of a member suggestion.  So don’t be bashful.  You can attend in person at Mary’s Pizza in Novato (dinner is on the club) or contact President Ben or myself for the zoom link to attend by zoom if that fits your schedule better. 

Drive safe, you see soon. 
Board Meeting Minutes

PCA Redwood Grill Badge

My name is Rob, a Porsche enthusiast from The Netherlands in Europe.
In January I acquired a 1974 Porsche 911S. This 911 has a window sticker from the 50th anniversary Redwood PCA. This 911 used to drive in the Redwood area and the previous owner lived in Ukiah. 
I really would like to decorate my new 911 with a grill badge from PCA Redwood district.
Please contact Rob
Vintage Redwood Region Badge
(with the drive-through tree)

My Redwood Region Badge is beyond repair, and I am putting together a shadow box with some PCA and Porsche memorabilia including the Porsche 100 Jahre badge, factory Besucher Tour sticker, PCA badge and the badges from Redwood Region, the late and great Germany Region and now the Santa Barbara Region. 
I am looking for a vintage badge to replace mine. It should be in fairly good condition but I don't expect something that old to be pristine.

If you are willing to part with yours,
please contact George.
