Any Speeding Tickets We Should Know About? I would be happy to answer any questions you may have and comply fully with your investigation in the presence of my attorney.
Most Memorable Track Experience: Seeing a totally new Novice student progress so fast that he was getting slip angles around the Octopus on Thunderbolt on his first day.
Least Memorable Track Experience: Having a student forget to brake entering Turn 9 at NHMS, then grabbing the brakes mid way through. The walls over there are conveniently sharp and pointy – on the passenger side of course.
Ultimate Track Goals: Well, now that I’m an instructor I’ve successfully checked one goal off the list since I was featured as a student. I guess that leaves racing and setting a lap record at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, which I’ll take in no particular order. And not crashing. That would be a worthy goal to add to the list.
Tracks Driven: Thompson, NHMS, Lime Rock, Watkins Glen, Monticello, Thunderbolt, Lightning, Storrow Drive

Anything Else We Should Know? It is better to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.
