Building a Racecar Driver - Chapter 5

Building a Racecar Driver - Chapter 5

So being on an auto race team usually means traveling a lot, unless you are the big rig driver, then it means that’s all you do, because you are either driving the big rig or working at a race. It is so common for people to say how cool or glamourous it must be, being on a race team. It really is not, you see airports and racetracks, that is about it. Hey, I am not saying that it isn’t exciting, most of us are adrenaline junkies, we cannot get enough of this stuff. Back in the 90’s, I worked on separate race teams in Europe and in the US, I traveled back and forth working at races on both continents, not to mention I had a budding new Porsche shop that I had just opened in 1992, so needless to say, I wasn’t resting much, but I loved it. Currently, I am residing in a campground at Sardis Lake just outside of Oxford, MS. I had just spent a couple of weeks prepping the racecar at a close friend’s shop, Doc’s Bimmer shop. Doc opened his doors for us and ... read more

Building a Racecar Driver - Chapter 7

I’m currently on a flight from Portland, Oregon to Austin. Yes, I do take some time off here and there, and sometimes LA just seems too much.  Oregon has beautiful Rivers, Mountains and Trees, I enjoyed a few days there and even got to have lunch and some wine tasting with a good friend Gunner Mench! When I arrive Austin I basically have two weeks to finish prepping our racecar. You might ask, two weeks, anything can be accomplished in two weeks! No, not really, because I am pretty much the only guy that services the racecar and let me tell you, both the techs and I prefer the car to be ready when it arrives the racetrack. Racing is interesting, no matter how much time you have, there is always more items to do than time available, always.  Let me explain; I originally set up a service protocol per test or race weekend that includes the following list, and this includes our list for VIR: Prep #39 for VIR Test and Race Weekend -Set up in RV campground -Prepare servi ... read more

Building a Racecar Driver - Chapter 6

As I sit here in our team Motorcoach Monday Morning, in an RV park next to the river in Austin, TX reflecting on the last few weeks, it all seems a blur. We first traveled to Sebring, FL, then Birmingham, AL and now we're in Austin, TX for the Porsche Sprint Challenge (PSC) COTA race, yesterday. Being a new driver, DE as we call Daniel Espinosa, has had a number of ups and downs this year, commonplace with most any aspiring new driver. DE insisted on taking the fast track to becoming a pro-driver. While it might take a lifetime for some, DE has requested that due to his age and including his fathers age, that it be as quick as possible. Having said that, there is usually a definite point where it all clicks, where the driver gets it, on a subconscious level. COTA (Circuit of the Americas) was that point for Daniel. Becoming a pro racecar driver takes extreme diligence and personal responsibility. It takes a lot of hard work and only a lot of seat-time will get you there. We ar ... read more
