HEART SURGERY

By Grant Lenahan Of course it’s heart surgery. That’s why we had a cardiologist on the team. Also, being a curious sort, he wanted to understand better what made these Boxster beasts tick. And so, under the watchful expert guidance of Gene Kirschner and Ken Smith of Autohaus (Peapack, NJ), we undertook pulling the motor […]

Flemington Porsche

As most know, Flemington Porsche was the autocross series sponsor for 2016. Their support led to a very successful autocross season and several hundred happy drivers! On December 19, Bill Gilbert and Sharon Doherty, on behalf of NNJR, presented a thank you plaque to Steve Opdyke, General Manager, and Rich Karas, Certified Porsche Brand Ambassador. […]

Driver Log

First, let me correct a mistake in the previously published DE schedule.  We will NOT be at Watkins Glen from September 18 through 29. Twelve days in a row at the Glen has a certain appeal, but human, mechanical, and financial fatigue do take a toll. We’ll have to settle for the 18th and 19th. […]

President Letter February

So here we are in the middle of the winter, but if you check the NNJR Calendar on our web site or the Around the Corner column in this magazine, you will see that there is plenty to do with more and more each month. I am looking forward to witnessing the magic performed by […]

Concour Corner

The last judged concours of the season was held at Lewis Morris Park in Morristown.  This event on October 9 was going to take place, rain or shine. Up to 24 hours before the event the weather forecast changed three times – not for the better. Nevertheless, all plans were made, food and trophies ordered, […]

Drivers Log

By Tom Swift Our last two events of the year had us going south – directionally correct as an old boss used to say.  Mid October took us back to New Jersey Motorsports Park for two days at Lightning. This year we had terrific weather and a very good turnout.  It should have been a […]

President Letter December

We just returned from VIR with really big smiles on our faces – what a great event! The track is amazing all by itself, but when you add three days of perfect weather (‘70s and ‘80s) to the mix, it becomes that very special. What a fantastic way to end the NNJR DE season for […]
