Zone Rep Report November 2016

Liz ShawIn the Zone by Liz Shaw

Hello Zone 9ers,

Even though this is the November report, I’m reporting on September activities because of the due date of the report. So September means Club Racing for Zone 9! Rocky Mountain Region moved their Club Race and HPDE to early September because it was just too hot to have the event in mid-August. Saturday was breezy all day but Sunday wasn’t too bad. At least it didn’t rain or get unbearably hot. The racing was great, although I didn’t have too difficult of a job handing out Pirelli hats to the Class winners because the Cup classes were pretty small. I helped out with Timing & Scoring and tried to learn a few things and not make any mistakes! As usual, Rocky Mountain Region hosted a great event all weekend – good food, fun racing, good music, fun HPDE – what could be better??

The following weekend, I headed to Salt Lake City for Intermountain Region’s HPDE and Club Race at Utah Motorsports Campus (AKA Miller). The event was somewhat lightly attended but everyone there had lots of track time and the racing was great to watch.

A few weeks after SLC, I got up at oh-dark-hundred and headed to Albuquerque to join my fellow Roadrunners for breakfast at Porsche of Albuquerque. The dealership is situated perfectly for viewing the hot air balloons and although we were not treated to balloons flying directly over the dealership, we still had some great views of the hundreds of balloons in the west. There were some new special shapes this year and I would have loved to have been closer to the dragon balloon. I always like seeing Darth Vader and this year, Yoda was right next to him.

My PCA schedule will be a little busy for the next month or so – Parade planning in Spokane, Carrera Region’s OktoberFiesta, and Porsche Experience Center (driving a new Carrera S) to round out October. Then in mid-November, I’m headed to Ontario, CA, for the PCA Tech Tactics and possibly the LA Auto Show.

Hope to see you around the Zone! And if you’re vying for the coveted Zone 9 Challenge Trophy, please let me know which Zone 9 Region and PCA National events you’ve attended. I already know of a few serious contenders.
