The Steering Wheel
President’s Message from STEVE LIMBERT, CPA-PCA President
Nothing is much truer that the old cliché, “Time flies when you are having fun.” Ain’t that the truth!
Summit Point is located just beyond Charlestown in West Virginia, which is about 100 miles give or take. So that makes it about a two-hour drive from our area. The track is very friendly to spectators.
Recently my old buddy, Fred Pfeiffer, who runs the PCA Potomac Club race, invited me to run my 914-6 GT at his event in Summit Point this September. It will include a true vintage race. I did a couple of PCA races that proved to be a blast several years ago. Trouble is, now I need a PCA race license and, to be quite honest, they are requiring me to jump through hoops. For several years I have not been saving my race results which are required, so now I’m on a quest to get supporting documents. But I’m sure it will all be worked out soon!
For those interested, Summit Point is located just beyond Charlestown in West Virginia, which is about 100 miles give or take. So that makes it about a two-hour drive from our area. The track is very friendly to spectators. There are several great locations to watch and the paddock is always open to check out the competitors. Weather should be pleasant the weekend of Sept. 24 & 25th.
At our last meeting we were still looking for a Social Chair and I’m pleased to report that Don Hilton has stepped up to fill that position. I’m sure that Mike McNulty, who is organizing our Holiday party, Eric Wahlberg who has been the driving force behind our Crab & Shrimp feast, as well as Al Peinhardt, who has been past Social Chair, will give Don their full support.
Things are getting caught up in the shop now that we have taken on another employee who has great mechanical experience working on most all German cars, including several Porsche models (air -ooled as well as those that use water). We are currently involved in the preservation of a numbers-matching 1967 911 S. There is a BIG difference in restoring and preserving. The latest issue of our Panorama has picked up on a similar project of preservation.
If all goes well the original 914-6 that I’m hoping to drive soon will be one of our winter projects.
Enjoy your Porsche cars!
As always, TRAVEL SAFE
