    Default In depth interview with Corvette Racer Oli T. Aka: The man with 40,000+ track miles!

    Oli Thordarson is well known around here. But you guys might learn some things from a great interview Oli gave AutoXandTrack. It seems his illustrious racing career began with a rather impulsive Corvette purchase. Check it out the inspiring story in his two part interview. I love some of the descriptions he gives of why he races.

    Some great pics and video in the article too.

    Thanks Emilio. You and 949 Racing are one of the mentions I failed to make in my list of thanks to indispensible people who have helped me over the years.

    Your list of coaches is long and illustrious and your negotiating technique of "if you can get me out in 30 min ill buy it" is positively inspired
