Highlights

I finally made it back out to the track in March of 2012 for my fist time ever on 4 wheels and no longer on 2. It had been a long 5 year journey back to the track but Iv finally made it back out to where I feel the most at home. I planned to race the whole NorCal NASA series this year but due to mechanical issues with the car this season didn't exactly go as planned. I was able to get all of my HPDE classes taken care of in order to earn my racing license with NASA. All though I wasn't able to run a full race in the car this year, we did a handful of track days and got some good time on track to run problem shake down and chassis setup test's. I believe we now have a well sorted championship contending and with the more knowledge and experience I gain behind the wheel and in a car, we have a very competitive package to offer.

Goals

My ambitions for next season is to run the complete West Coast Northern California NASA racing series as well as a few SCCA events if possible. The NorCal NASA series will be my main focus but on the months that they don't run I would like to attend some other racing sanctions to gain the experience as well as exposure. I plan to practice at least once a month on top of the race weekends as well to increase my seat time and confidence behind the wheel.
