When and how did you get started in racing?

Went with my dad in the 60's and got the fever...

My dad, as when he was still alive, he would give me small tips about how geometry and physics would never change on a race car with setup etc.

The Competition

In your own words, describe your 2011 season:

Great season, the best help ever and a championship.
