Background

I first learned about autocross and open track days back in 1993. I had no idea you could participate in competitive driving events with just a street car. My first autocross I drove a 1982 Subaru GL hatchback with 68 HP. I think I came in 2nd to last. No matter; I had a blast and was hooked. Now, 20 years, a couple dozen vehicles, and who knows how many tens of thousands of dollars later, I'm still at it and loving it.

It's the fact that I'm NOT a naturally talented driver that keeps me striving to get faster. It's still a challenge for me to do the basics: be aggressive and smooth; keep the car at the limit of grip, but not beyond it; go fast enough in the fast parts, and slow enough in the slow parts; be relaxed behind the wheel, yet 100% focused and intense. And, besides the satisfaction of winning or setting a new track record, it's also great fun to play with cars, and to hang out with the fantastic people I've met through motorsports.

Highlights

Becoming recognized and known regionally (and to a limited degree, nationally, via online forums and videos) as a competent, experienced, and skilled driver. Having successfully built (and rebuilt, a few times...) a 500+ WHP race car that has achieved great success (2010 SCCA SM National Championship winner). Having many people come up to me and say, "I love your car and what you've done with it."

Goals

Make the car faster and more reliable. Make the driver faster and more consistent. Log more miles on-track. Score more wins; suffer less DNFs. Have more fun, and take lots of awesome POV videos with GoPro products.
