September 12, 2015 – At Eastern Florida State College.
June 6, 2015 – Space Coast PCA’s 3rd AutoX event of the season was held on June 6th at the Eastern Florida State College South campus in Palm Bay. We had another good turnout with 39 cars, 27 Porsche’s participating. This was our final event of the spring AutoX season before our summer break. Events will resume in September with 3 more events scheduled for the fall session. Our 2015 competition format is based on counting a participant’s best points from 5 out of the total of 6 events that will count towards year end class wins.
Competition is heating up across the board with marked improvement in individual times. Scott Key continued his strong showing in the S1a Boxster class, posting a quick 59.868 for 1st place in class, followed in 2nd place by Porsche of Melbourne’s’ Jeremy Hilton with a 60.894 and in 3rd place John Lothian finished with a 63.214.
In the ever growing S1b Cayman class, 7 entrants, Craig Barrie ripped off a really quick 57.93 to take 1st in class, followed in 2nd place by Mike Morrison with a 59.00 flat and Russ Karnap with a 59.293 for 3rd place. There seems to be a real battle brewing in the Cayman class, with 4 of the 7 S1b entrants within less than a second of each other, all with 59.xxx run times. Nice driving guys, it was fun to watch.
The S2b 911 class saw Carmen Devito take 1st place in class with a blistering 56.566 run that was good for 3rd place overall, and Matt Kesting following in 2nd place with a fast 57.113. Tom Kirk took 3rd with a nice 57.948 to round out the podium.
The S3, early model 911 class win was taken by David Krulewitz with a swift 61.072, followed in 2nd place by Laing Conley with a 61.823 and Roland Gallie in 3rd with a 63.085.
In the S5, late model 911 high performance class, Tim Robart drove his beautiful new 991 GT3 to a 60.107.
In the SL, Ladies class Sara Morrison ran a nice 60.833 for 1st place, followed by Sally Jecman with a 64.756 in 2nd and Sue Kee in 3rd with a 73.082.
The SUV class saw Robert Brennan in his Porsche Cayenne run a 66.739. That’s a lot of car to handle that quickly.
The P1 class had Reis Barrie put on a show wheeling his 1990 944 to an impressive 60.273.
Alone in the P2, prepared 911 class, Ken Marshall took fastest time of the day with a 54.543.
And that concludes our final run of the first half of the AutoX season. Make sure to sign up for the start of the second half of the season. Our next AutoX event will be held on September 12th at the EFSC facility, and don’t forget the Suncoast/Goldcoast DE at Sebring the following weekend on September 19th and 20th. See you at the races!
May 9, 2015 – The second AutoX of the season is in the bag and judging by the great turnout, Space Coast PCA members are getting much more involved. We set a new record of 28 Porsche’s in attendance out of 40 total entrants, beating our last event by 10 cars.
A new course design featured a double loop at either end of the lot with average run times of over 60 seconds. With 5 runs per driver, per session, this made for a lot of driving. The course received very favorable reviews with the drivers, so much so, that by popular demand we will run a similar course at our next event. Our approach has been to design a challenging course that allows drivers to improve their skills while exploring the limits of their car’s performance in a safe and fun environment.
In the S1 Boxster class Steve Hoffman entered the fray with his ”new” ride, however his second best time of 63.854 wasn’t enough to unseat the hard charging Scott Key who led the class with a 62.202. Jeremey Hilton placed 3rd in class with a nice 64.733.
The S1b Cayman class saw David Oneal in his beautiful new Cayman GTS wheel his way to victory with a hot 59.725, good for 3rd overall, followed by Chris Bevert with a 61.651 for second place, and Tim Marshall filling the podium in 3rd with a 62.137.
The S2b Carrera 911 class started heating things up with some great runs. Carmen Devito blazed the trail and had the crowd on it’s feet with a smoking 58.985 for 1st place in class, second place overall, followed by Reis Barrie with a quick 60.388 for 2nd in class 4th overall and Tom Kirk in 3rd with a 61.789. Great driving guys.
The S3 division saw Roland Gallie take top honors in class with a 64.67 time, followed by Jason Breitfeller, 67.122, who unfortunately blew his engine, on his 3rd run.
A back and forth battle of the heavyweights ensued in the S5 class with the awesome Turbo’s of Steve Sedaros and Adam Wiener putting on a great launch control demonstration. The crowd loved it. These cars are so fast! After trading times back and forth with less than a half second difference between them for four runs, Steve finally called on the AutoX gods and ripped off an amazing 58.542 to take not only the class win, but top time of the day. Nice job Steve! Adam finished 2nd in class with a quick 61.983.
The ladies class saw Victoria Dieterle take 1st place with a very quick 64.826 followed in second place by Sally Jecmen with a 67.171 and Robin Hoffman rounding out the podium in 3rd with a70.437 run.
It was nice to see Porsche of Melbourne joining us again with Haley Kerr and Hans Hoezlwimmer coming out to join in the fun. They’ll be back!
The next AutoX is scheduled for June 6th.
March 14, 2015 – We’re baaaaack! After a couple of scheduling miscues we were finally able to hold our first Space Coast AutoX event of the 2015 season on March 14th. It was a great success on a number of counts. Beautiful weather enabled each participant to get in 5 runs, our new trailer comfortably and efficiently hauled all of our equipment and we were able to use the EFSC restroom facilities, yes ladies, no more Portolets! We ended up with 28 Porsches entered out of 35 total participants. This beats our previous Porsche record by 10 entries.
Hats off to our volunteers, Craig, Lynda, and Reis Barrie, Lou Linden, Scott Kee, Steve (Wojo) Wojcicki, Tim Marshall, Jason Breitfeller and Tommy Prusaski who made this possible. We are always looking for help. Contact Craig or Ken if you’d like to volunteer (contact info on pg 5).
Now to the competition. They say that practice makes perfect and it’s obvious we are starting to develop some very quick drivers.
Scott Kee, took 1st place in the S1a class with a fast time of 46.233 and held off Richard Rosseau, in 2nd place by a slim half second margin in a tightly contested battle of the Boxsters. Porsche of Melbourne’s ever faster Jeremy Hilton came in third with a nice 48.307 run. Also entered in the S1A class for his first ever AutoX was Porsche of Melbourne’s Dylan Kotoulis, 49.886. Not bad for your first time Dylan. I have to say it’s nice to see the Porsche of Melbourne folks coming out to play. They are truly one of us!
Craig Barrie posted a 1st place finish in the S1B Cayman class and his blazing 44.192 time was good for 3rd fastest time of the day. Craig was followed in 2nd place by Michael Morrison with a fast 45.34 time and in 3rd place Russ Karnap posted a 46.554.
Carmen Devito led the 911 S2b pack with a smoking 44.507, good for 4th fastest overall time of the day. Carmen seems to be getting faster each event. Doug Dieruff placed second with a nice 46.248 run followed in 3rd place by Ron Menck with a 46.897.
In the S3 class Jason Breitfeller lead a group of older 911’s to victory with a nice 48.642 run followed closely by Roland Gallie in 2nd with a 48.89. Steve Sedaros ended up breaking the sub 50 second barrier for 3rd place in the S3 class with a sweet 49.787 run. It is truly impressive to see these “older” Porsches holding their own against the newer cars. Way to represent guys!
The ladies were not to be outdone, with Sara Morrison posting a nice 47.939 run to take 1st place in the SL class followed by Victoria Dieterle in second with a 48.698. Sue Kee came in 3rd in her first ever AutoX with a 68.399.
Alone in the P1 class, Ken Marshall set the fastest overall time of the day with a 43.397.
P2 class winner Reis Barrie squealed his 944 to a 47.048 on his best and final run of the day followed in second place by Dick Clark with a 63.064.
By the time you read this we should have completed our second event of the season on May 9th and will be getting ready for our final spring run on June 6th. Our plan will be to take a summer break and resume the remainder our 6 event AutoX schedule in September. Hope to see you there.
