Well the new year is upon us and with that comes new opportunities. In 2018 I'll be once again racing in endurance races here in the U.S. in the Mazdas again. We'll be at Road Atlanta next month, so there has not been a very long winter break! We had huge success in 2017 with these so I'm happy to continue that effort and hopefully bring home more first place hardware.
In terms of professional events, I have a goal to do three races at minimum on my own budget. I'm committed to doing the 24H Series race at COTA again and will be seeking any opportunities to race in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge round during the Petit Le Mans weekend in the fall. The third race is in the air, however I've been discussing options abroad. Either a one off special event or part of the 24H Series. As always though, the budget is the deciding factor on everything in motorsport at this level. With that said, any additional races are pending the involvement of partners and the door is always open if you think your business can benefit from this type of exposure!
I'll also continue coaching this season. I work part time at a local race track providing instructing and coaching services during car control clinics, track day training, and corporate experiences. I'm also of course available for any private coaching if you'd like to use my services during a track day or race weekend. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or check out my page here for more details.
The 2018 season is looking to be an exciting one. Stay tuned for some more announcements soon regarding who is going to be joining me this season!
