The world is ever changing and knowledge is extremely important. I really enjoy learning new things and building my knowledge base. Racing is another passion of mine and I have a few other boxes to tick off like winning the 24h of Le Mans and the 24h of Daytona.
Baja 1000 Trophy TruckWhat motivates you and why?
Turn 9. Exiting the corkscrew flat out you drop down into turn 9: an off camber, downhill, high speed turn that lacks grip. I have only spun out there once, back in 2011, and I still remember it to this day. Every time you drop into that corner, you can easily spin so I am proud to have only done it once there! What advice did your parent(s) give you when you told them you wanted to be a race car driver? I was lucky enough to have a father that raced for 20 years. I grew up spending a lot of time at the track watching my dad race, and grew a passion for it that way. Watching him succeed gave me the drive - no pun intended - to succeed in racing as well.
What turn here is the most likely one to trip you up?
Le Mans is #1. That place is magical. 300k+ people, all true motorsports fans, and 8.5 miles of amazing race track. #2 is Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. I only get to race there in Ferrari Challenge as a support race during the F1 weekend so the track time is limited. The track layout is one of the best and it's similar to a street course with no runoff. That means no room for error, which I love.
