DE 101 at Porsche Omaha
April 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Great Plains and Schonesland Regions invite you to join us for a DE101 presentation and tech quiz on Saturday, April 4, from 10 am to 12 pm at Porsche Omaha.
As in previous editions, we will cover all the DE 101 basics for those interested in doing their first DE. From getting registered, car preparation, to what the day will be like. We’ll make sure you are ready for a fun and memorable experience. For our experienced DE drivers, we will refresh everyone on DE standards along with a few standards updates. For the Tech discussion and session this year we will cover alignments with Andy Hipwell, service manager extraordinaire who is inviting us into the garage for a run through of the Porsche alignment process, equipment they use, including before and after data on camber, caster and toe adjustments. Note: They won’t be doing an actual alignment on the car since that would obviously take too long. We will expand our Tech segment discussion to include brakes/brake pads along with the various aspects of tire pressure and how you can approach this black art on track days along with a refresher run through of the various electronic nannies and the original nannies employed by non-electronically aided Porsche’s and their drivers.
Our Chalk-Talk segment will be a discussion on driving line, corner anatomy and the mechanics that facilitate a good line, like braking points, turn-in, throttle and brake control and trail braking. This year, as we work out our DE locations, this segment will be focused on the general aspects of these points vs being track specific.
Coffee and doughnuts will be served. Please RSVP to Armando Colorado at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on April 2nd.
