He went on to capture 2nd place in the 2008 ALMS championship with Dirk Mueller in a Ferrari F430. In the 2009 season, he won the Asian Le Mans Series Championship in a Ferrari F430. In addition, he drove for the Panoz Factory team of PTG to a fantastic 5th place in the American Le Mans Series in the GT2 class.

Am proud of… my family—they have enabled me to do my dream sport and we work as one team in everything we do.

Best advice ever given… finish school before racing and always be honest no matter what.

Biggest regret…. I shifted into 2nd gear at the end of Mulsane straight in the 2006 LeMans and broke off the gear lever, yet it was not even in gear when it broke---I was in neutral. And that’s why we lost the 1st place.

Last night I… couldn’t sleep as always. There is always a lot going through my A.D.D. head, it’s hard for me to fall asleep.

Most anxious moment of my life… It will be when I get on the podium after the victory at Daytona and Lemans

Most embarrassing moment off-track… I crashed on the highway after overtaking the person in front of me on a snow-covered road. The most embarrassing and nerve-wrecking part was telling my dad I crashed his car.

People always hassle me about… always being clumsy and eating too fast

Racing hero… my dad and Michael Shumacher and Wolf Henzler

Smartest thing I ever did… Moving out on my own and when I started racing in the US

What peeves me off is…
when people are crabby, but more so when slow cars are in front of me on the highway

When I finish this questionaire I will… watch “The Hangover” and then go sledding.
