June 8 - 11: Northern Arizona Scenic Tours and Gimmick
Rally in and around Flagstaff Arizona is now history, but the memories
We had 18 cars participate in the Rally. PCA members from 5
regions and two Zones joined in the Rally. We finished on the patio of
Continental Country Club overlooking the fairway and mountains. We had a
raffle to donate the funds to the newly formed AZ Mountain Region. The
weekend participants were generous and we will be donating $500.
A big THANK YOU to Scott Hatcher and Tamela Kahle for all
their hard work in making the Flagstaff Week-End memorable. The
amount of work and driving that Scott and Tamela did to insure everything
was perfect and nothing was left to chance was unbelievable. Scott
and Tamela provided members from four Zone 8 Regions and one Florida
member with a week-end full of fun drives, beautiful scenery, great food
and loads of Porsche fun.
From the beginning on Friday, to the end on Monday,
everything was perfect. Nothing was left to
chance. Each morning at the driver's meeting, everyone received
a brightly colored daily schedule, the driving plan and cold water (Thank
you Gaudin Porsche for the water).
The Gimmick Rally was fun and
challenging. The most amazing part of the Rally was that
five days before the event, Scott and Tamela discovered that the road to
the final part of the Rally and the lunch and awards venue was closed due
to high fire danger. That didn't stop them, the rewrote the
Rally and found another wonderful place for lunch and awards. Thank you to
Gaudin Porsche, Chandler Porsche and Scottsdale Porsche for the generous
awards you provided. A great time was had by all.
Again, THANK YOU Scott and Tamela for a wonderful fun-filled
The afternoon drive was to Sunset Crater & Wupatki
National Monuments included Montezuma's Castle.

Before We Go . . . The 24 Hours of LeMans was this weekend.
Porsche holds the Manufacturer record for both overall
victories and class wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, with 19 victories and
105 wins, respectively. This weekend, the German marque successfully added
two class wins at the Circuit de Le Sarthe. The two Porsche GT Teams
fielded four Porsche 911 RSRs and four customer teams campaigned six
additional entries of the 510 hp 911 RSR built in Weissach,
Germany. On June 3, the Porsche 911 RSR clocked the fastest lap
times at the test day in both the LMGTE-Pro and LMGTE-Am class.
Both Porsche GT Teams from the North American IMSA
WeatherTech SportsCar Championship - Nos. 93 and 94 - and the FIA/ACO
World Endurance Championship (WEC) - Nos. 91 and 92 -focused on raising
the LM24 first-place trophy for the 106th time. To honor the 70
years of Porsche sports cars, the Nos. 91 and 92 carried historic liveries
for the "twice around the clock" classic. The No. 91 carried the
blue, white, red and gold of the Rothmans cars of the 1980s while the No.
92 featured the "Pink Pig" artwork of the famed 917/20 from
As expected, Porsche dominated the GTE Pro class. The
No. 92 Porsche GT "Piggy" Team took the victory, followed by the
No. 91 Rothman's Porsche GT in second. The No. 68 Ford GT of Chip Ganassi
Racing took third in GTE Pro.
The No. 77 Dempsey - Proton Racing team (Porsche 911 RSR)
took first in the GTE Am class, followed by the No. 54 Spirit of Race
team (Ferrari 488 GTE) in second and the No. 85 Keating Motorsports team
(Ferrari 488 GTE) in third.
