An American in Germany

My first Carrera Cup race. At Hockenheimring. Was I excited? Absolutely! But I tried to be realistic with my expectations, as my competitors have three, four, or even five years experience in the series and on tracks we’d be racing on.

For me, this race was not just about learning a new car—it was about learning a new car at a track I’ve never raced on, in a country I’ve lived in for only two months. We’d done some testing at the Hungaroring, Adria Raceway, and the Red Bull Ring to prepare for the season opener in Hockenheim, so I was beginning to get comfortable with my new “office.” But now it was time to shine in Hockenheim!
