SCOTT PETERSON

What inspired you to become a race car driver? When and how and did you start sports car racing?

My father always wanted to race cars. We talked cars constantly. He loved sports cars and idolized Bob Bondurant back in the day. But due to us 3 kids he never had the financial resources to pursue his dream of racing cars. I lost my father to cancer. So for my 50th birthday present, my wife sent me to the Bondurant school in AZ. She knew how much my father wanted to attend his school. Then for my next birthday she sent me to Proformance in Seattle. After that a friend of mine was familiar with Pro Drive and suggested I go through my novice process with them.
After a fairly rocky first weekend, I knew I was hooked and I had found my racing family! I raced the remainder of that season in a Pro Drive rental racecar. And in the off season I had my own Gen-3 built.
The first thing I did was have my father's initials put on my car. So he is with me at every race!

What was your first car?

My first car was a 1974 Mazda rotary pickup truck.

When and how and did you start sports car racing?

What is your favorite on-track racing moment/accomplishment?

There have been several, but one of the most gratifying occurred after a mid-race collision.
Two other drivers and I had been sharing the lead of a race when while leading a car spun in front of me at the exit of turn 6 in Portland. I went for the inside and the grass, but there was contact with car pieces flying off and I noted the front body work of my car had shifted.
I thought my race was over (it did end the race of the other car).
As I went down the back straight and through the corners I noted the car felt solid and did not seem to have any handling issues. Though I got passed on the front straight, I found a new level of determination. I repassed the car and went on to win the race.
It was my first win.

ERIC WELLER

What inspired you to become a race car driver?

It evolved over time. As a kid, Hot Wheels were always in abundance that gave way to slot cars which gave way to go-karts, dirt bikes then sport bikes. I've always had the "need for speed" and a love of cars. One time I was in Seattle in the 70's to see a Mariner's game with my grandfather. We took a detour to a little sports car shop downtown where I came face to bulging fender and towering tail with a Porsche 930 turbo. I was mesmerized.....I can close my eyes and see it like it was today.
In the 80's I was always reading car magazines and was fascinated by F1. That fascination has never waned, I'm still a diehard fan. Senna, Prost, Mansell.......I could keep going, but you get the picture.

When and how and did you start sports car racing?

I was doing a lot of track days in my Porsche and decided to do an event through Pro Drive at PIR. After the day had ended, there were 3 or 4 Spec Racer Fords lined up in the pits. I asked Chris, my instructor about it and we went to Todd and Kristen to see if there was another car available for me to join the afternoon program. I was hooked immediately. As soon as I got out of the car we tracked down Todd so I could sign up for the 3-day racing school. The rest, as they say, is history....

What was your first car?

My first car was a 1965 Mustang that my grandfather ordered for my grandmother for Mother's Day, 1965. It was a light blue coupe with a 289 and a Cruise-O-Matic transmission. A thing of beauty.
It was my second car, however, that got the competitive juices flowing. It was a 1985 Mercury Capri with a 5.0l. I got in a lot of trouble with that car. I also got 3rd place in the 1986 Dr Pepper High School Drags at Renegade Raceway in Eastern Washington in that Capri. My first taste of (legal) competition.

Besides racing, what other hobbies do you enjoy?

In the summer I enjoy being out on the water in my boat, just floating down the Columbia soaking up the sun, listening to music and doing a little wakeboarding. As I think about it now, during the winter I just sulk around waiting for racing season to roll around again.....

Where is your favorite vacation spot and why?

Maui. I've been going for over 40 years now. You just can't beat it. Great weather, warm water, great food, diving, snorkeling. And the smell. Nothing smells like Hawaii as you get off the plane. One breath and you know you've arrived in paradise.

What is your favorite restaurant and where is it located?

My favorite restaurant is Morton's of Chicago here in Seattle. For the past 11 years my son, Blaine, and I have made it our "Thanksgiving". Every Wednesday before Thanksgiving the 2 of us go down and have big fillets and an hour or two of conversation which has evolved from "father-son" to now, "man to man". It's the best night of the year.

What is your favorite movie or television show?

Formula 1 racing is about the only thing I NEED to watch on TV. And when I say need, I mean I will absolutely blow a gasket if I miss a race or qualifying. Seriously.
My favorite movie is a tough one, but if pressed to pick one, I'd have to go with "2001: A Space Odyssey"....."I'm sorry Dave.....

Where were you born?

I was born in The Palm Springs of Washington. Yakivegas, also known as Yakima.

What hidden talent do you possess that most do not know about?

I can move my left ear independently.

What is your favorite quote?

"The fool doth think he is wise. The wise man knows himself to be a fool"
A close second would be "You only go around once....." To that, I'll often add, or insinuate "......so do what makes you happy" You know, like driving race cars........

What is your favorite on-track racing moment/accomplishment?

I have 3. You can't make me choose 1!
The first is receiving the Oregon Region's 2011 "Novice Driver of the Year" award.
The second is a "personal" moment. In 2015 I was on pole for the Rose Cup feature race. I lead the field to the start behind the pace car. I felt like the biggest Rock star on the planet for those 1.97 miles.....
The third, and most dear to my heart, came this year. I took second in SRF at Rose Cup and stood on the podium surrounded by my Pro Drive teammates. I'll never forget that feeling as long as I live. I have that picture as my desktop background so I can relive that moment every morning.

I can't explain how much concentration, precision and consistency is required to drive a race car. In SRF you aren't competitive unless you are at the limit all the time.

JIM MURRAY

What inspired you to become a race car driver?

I've wanted to race from watching those early Can-Ams (Bruce McLaren, Denny Hulme, John Cannon winning in the rain at Laguna in an old-spec McLaren, the winged Chaparral 2H with John Surtees; Jo Siffert in the 917PA Spyder) and Trans-Ams (Mark Donohue, Parnelli Jones, George Follmer, Sam Posey; Camaros, Mustangs, Javelins, the Dodge Challenger).
Racing is addictive, relaxing and exciting in ways other sports aren't. I can't explain how much concentration, precision and consistency is required; then let's add speed. In SRF you aren't competitive unless you're on the limit all the time.

When and how and did you start sports car racing?

I thought I'd just do a racing school, after I learned about Bondurant, but it wasn't until 2005 that I found Pro Drive and tried the Spec Racer Ford; it's a great race car, plenty of entertainment, and hyper-competitive; the new Generation3 car is all that and more. And...there's always someone to race, no matter what your pace...so it's been all Pro Drive and Flat Out from 2006.

What was your first car?

The first car I bought with my own money was a 1959 Triumph TR3, for $650. That car was a story and great fun.

Besides racing, what other hobbies do you enjoy?

I've played lots of sports; track, football, golf, tennis, skiing, distance running, cycling...to name a few. Each has its own discipline but the extended concentration needed for racing is without parallel. I still enjoy all sports; in my Walter Mitty moments I would be a pro athlete (F1 driver?) but that would have been many years ago...and I just had work to do.

What is your favorite on-track racing moment/accomplishment?

At the end of my first racing season, we had an October race; and there was rain. It was one of those soggy, misty Portland days where the spray from a moving car obscures everything. At the start of a race, this is very distressing for everyone; drivers just can't see the other cars. Anyway, I think I started 11th or something; we took off and somehow I made up 4 places by the first corner; so I was 7th out of nowhere. I wasn't able to go fast enough to keep up with 6th, so I gradually fell back...but kept all the other cars behind me and finished in 7th. It was my highest placing ever to that point. The funny thing of it is...during the early laps I spun coming out of turn 5; did a complete 360, and didn't lose my place!
Sometime later, I was able to find a photo of my car during the race entering turn 11, mist flowing behind, rain dripping from the fenders, just generally looking miserable; with spray-obscured shadows of the following cars trailing behind. Of course, I had to have that; I have it in an 18x24 frame in my office, so I always remember that day!

I've always been interested in racing but could never afford the money or the time to do it. I decided at one point that I could afford it, that I wasn't getting any younger and if I was going to go racing it better be now so at 58 years old, I went for it.

When and how and did you start sports car racing?

My first entrèe to driving race cars was at an introductory course at Bob Bondurant in Arizona and it was beyond fun. Once home, I decided I had to keep this going so I found ProDrive, took their courses on driving skills which led to meeting the requirements for an SCCA Competition license. I then started racing on the ProDrive team using one of their rentals. In 2017 I will get my own car, a new, Gen-3 SRF.

What is your favorite on-track racing moment/accomplishment?

In my first race year we (Pro Drive) were at Sonoma Raceway. I was pretty green as a driver and had really only spent my time driving the car as opposed to actually racing somebody in it. Fortunately, the field at Sonoma was pretty large with skill-levels all over the board. I found myself racing lap after lap with a guy from another region and we were pretty close in our abilities. At one point though, I passed him on the outside in T11. I can hardly tell you how exciting that moment was... I thought "my gosh, I really am a race car driver!!"

What is your favorite on-track racing moment/accomplishment?

My favorite on-track accomplishment was during my first race weekend. Still being new to racing, my lap times were definitely some of the slowest throughout the weekend. It had rained quite a lot before the final qualifying session, and I ended up qualifying halfway through the field. About a quarter of the cars didn't run, but there was still another six or seven cars that I had qualified in front of thanks to the rain. I did get caught up in a small wreck after my first hot lap, but I was still happy to have qualified so much better than I normally would.

JON McCLINTOCK

What inspired you to become a race car driver?

I signed up for Pro Drive's racing school because I wanted to see what it was like to drive a real race car. But once finished my first race, and saw how having a field of talented drivers to race with would push me to become a better and better driver, I was hooked.

When and how and did you start sports car racing?

I first drove on a race track back in 1999, at a high performance driver education course (HDPE) at Thunderhill Raceway Park down in California. I was only driving a Dodge Neon, but I had a blast throwing the car around the course. Fast forward several years, and I had a much faster car, and started doing more HPDEs with Audi Club Northwest. They do a great job of providing a safe environment to explore the limits of your car, but I wanted to see what real competition felt like.
Doing some research, I found that Pro Drive was the only school in the Northwest that teaches in race cars that aren't built from production cars. The appeal of a light, agile, purpose-built car with the open cockpit experience was irresistible. And then once I got in, I was hooked!

What was your first car?

My first car was a very beat up 1984 Ford Ranger.

Besides racing, what other hobbies do you enjoy?

I've got quite the range of hobbies: Scuba diving, photography, electronic music production, creating interactive electronic art installations, baking, and amateur radio.
