SCDA Instructor Bio

Name: Doug Brown

Occupation: Physicist, New Product Developer

How long have you instructed with SCDA: Since 2014

Current Track Car: SCCA GT2 E36 BMW 325i

Daily Driver: 2011 E90 M3

Favorite Track: Watkins Glen, followed closely by Sebring, then Laguna Seca and Lime Rock Park

Most Memorable Track Experience: Racing in the SCCA Playboy Cup during the 12 Hours of Sebring event. The atmosphere was unforgettable.

What are your top 3 bucket list items:

  1. Enter an SCCA national series and finish every race.
  2. Drive the Nuerburgring Nordschleife
  3. Return one last time, with my sons, to Bonneville for Speed Week. For raw horsepower and pure speed, there’s nothing else like it.

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose: Super eyesight and super reflexes.

Anything else you would like to share:  Car control. Many HPDE students ignore this aspect of their driving. Attending a car control clinic 2 or more times each year can really build confidence and improve lap times. Highly recommended!
