The team is Scott and Kieran in 2013. Scott and Kieran both started to drive karts in 2009 in SCCA Solo events, with Kieran moving up to the FJB 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's taken the season off. With the move to Eastern Tennessee, there are no local regions with an JC program, so Sinea will have to wait for another 2 seasons before she can drive again.
For 2013 and beyond, Kieran will be switching to a Briggs World Formula motor from the KT100s he's had for the last 3 years. 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.
In 2011 we added a big toy hauler that we can use for camping, etc, at big events. 28' of good lovin'!
I have been autoxing for about 9 years with the South Jersey, Philadelphia, and North Jersey SCCA regions. So far I've owned and autoxed the following cars:
I guess we'll be competing in Eastern Tennessee, Western North Carolina, and Southwestern Virginia now that we've moved to Kingsport, TN. Or doing a lot more national events... The closest kart track here is 3 hours away in Mooresville, NC. It's a brand new facility called the Mooresville Motorplex and the track is a direct clone of a famous Italian kart track where many champions have raced.
In 2011 Kieran stepped up to a full-size chassis with the KT100 while racing with Danny Kao's "King Yang's Magic Trailer" race team. We only did local and local National events this season since we planned on a trip to Disney during the Nebraska Championships week. In 2012 we started to run the National schedule again, with plans on hitting Nebraska just before school started, but other life changes interrupted that plan. We should be back to National-level competition in 2013, hitting anything within about 8-10 hours, plus Lincoln for Spring Nationals over Memorial Day weekend. Due to the school schedule here in Kingsport, Fall Nationals (and the ProSolo Finale) are no longer in the cards for us.
The family is also interested in watching lots of racing, especially Formula One and any/all sports car racing (ALMS, Rolex Grand-Am, Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Australian V8 supercars, SCCA Speed World Challenge, etc). Scott Pruett and Randy Pobst are my racing heroes. The kids tend to like whomever is leading the race at the moment...
Here is our autox and other racing-related events calendar:
