I spent the afternoon with the crew at Brimtek, and have some photos to share.
Check out the write up and link:
Ashburn, VA January 19, 2011 Virginia based Brimtek Motorsports, has teamed up with German Auto Parts.com and announced today its participation in World Challenge Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Pro Racing series for 2011. The team will field one Volkswagen GTI in the Touring Car (TC) class.
The driving duties will be handled by Reston, Virginia native, Tristan Herbert. Tristan is a natural competitor in everything that he does, ranging from professional snowboarding (member of the Budweiser Ariel Assault Team from 1998 to 2000) to racing cars. He began his track career in 1999 racing motorcycles and moved to cars in 2008. In the past three years of SCCA club racing Tristan has amassed 18 wins, 2 track records and the ITB championship in the Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Series. “I am a very competitive and focused guy, and I like to win,” remarked Herbert. “The opportunity to drive professionally is of course incredible, but the most important aspect for me is the competitive DNA that embodies the Brimtek team. They are ‘a play for keeps, never quit organization’ and that suits me perfectly. I feel confident that our commitment to each other and our race craft will catch a few of the existing World Challenge teams off guard this season,” said Herbert.
