Firstly many thanks for the fantastic feedback from all our fans on the first few episodes of WFCS II. It is very reassuring and rewarding to hear that people are enjoying the shows – after all we did make them for you guys!
My life this summer seems to have revolved between shooting WFCS, attending various car events, hosting Barrett Jackson Las Vegas for SPEED and occasionally getting home to remind my family I live there. But as important as all of that was my last race in the eBay Motors Mustang at the famous Sonoma race track just a few weeks ago.
As you may know we started the season very strong – winning and leading the Championship – only to fall behind a bit mid-season. However, going into that last race we really wanted to put on a great show not just for the fans, but for everyone at eBay that supported us and very specially for the amazing Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF) kids that came along to wave their flags and be my biggest fans.
After a poor qualifying I started the race in a backup car and got it all the way to the front making a last lap pass in the last corner getting us onto the podium for our last race of 2012! It felt so good to finish the year in flying form and I know that we are already making big plans for next year…watch this space!
So October is already here and it is another great month for the show: I get to learn to drift with my fellow eBay racer Tony B, we terrorize Las Vegas in the new Fiat Abarth, We go on some amazing press trips, hit the race track and then I go to England and race an amazing new supercar through an English country estate!
The month ends with the unique SEMA show where eBay Motors have a huge presence and I will be hosting the eBay Motors Peoples Pick awards – so be sure to visit the site and participate – it is a great evening to be a part of.
Don’t forget we have another Live Chat on the 17th – where you get the chance to get involved and ask me anything you want…almost!
Remember, life should be lived fast…….
