 Welcome to Better Off Racing, home of the

Boito Family racing team. 

 
      
                    
          
     
 
 
The team is Scott and Kieran in 2018, both driving the shifter kart now!  Scott and Kieran both started to drive karts in 2009 in SCCA Solo events, with Kieran moving up to the JB class in 2010.  Killeen drove in 2010 and 2011, but officially retired toward the end of the season.  Sinea started in the kid kart in 2012 but the schedule and her maturity didn't match up so she took a few seasons off.  With the move to Eastern Tennessee, there are no local regions with an JC program, so Sinea had to wait and start driving at the kart track a little when we made it over there.  Sinea decided to retire in early 2018 after hitting the GoPro track again.
 
For 2013 through 2017, Kieran switched to a Briggs World Formula motor from the KT100s he had for the previous 2.5 years in JB.  It is a 4-stroke so more torque off the line, but a need to stay on the gas as often as possible.  He's had experience with that from the clone motors he ran in autox and sprint racing at NJMP.  For 2015, Kieran moved up to JA where he got to go faster (unrestricted carb) and quicker.  That means at the track he was only a few seconds slower than I am in the shifter.  In 2017 he ran my shifter kart at GoPro in the fall and in 2018 he's moved to the shifter full time.
 
Scott has been autoxing for about 14 years with the South Jersey, Philadelphia, North Jersey, and East Tennessee SCCA regions.  So far I've owned and autoxed the following vehicles:
 
2001 Acura CL (STX)
1986 VW Scirocco (STS)
1996 Subaru Impreza LX (STS)
1991 Honda Civic Si (STS)
2000 Haase Blizzard kart (F125/KM)
And the current toys: a Intrepid Silverstone shifter kart  (with Mod Honda motor) and a Scion FR-S. 
Kieran adds a 2006 Miata Touring in 2018, but mainly for street driving.
 
We're doing a lot more national SCCA events since moving to Tennessee.  Luckily we acquired Bristol Motor Speedway as our main local site now, so this eases our availability for locals as the track is only 20 min from home. The closest sprint kart track here is 3 hours away in Mooresville, NC.  It's a five-year-old facility called the GoPro Motorplex and the track is a clone of a famous Italian kart track where many champions have raced, but with excellent elevation changes.  It is a wonderful facility that we visit a few times every year.  Now with Kieran driving the shifter, I expect he'll get close and eventually start beating my times on the track.
 
 
The family is also interested in watching lots of racing, especially Formula One and any/all sports car racing (IMSA, Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Australian V8 supercars, Pirelli World Challenge, etc).  Scott Pruett and Randy Pobst were my racing heroes.  I like the skill of Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso in F1 and the Taylor brothers in IMSA.  The kids tend to like whoever is leading the race at the moment...
