“Colin Braun caught my attention based on his strong performance in the Grand Am sports car series but more importantly, based on my assessment of his potential. Colin demonstrated the characteristics of world class championship drivers with superior motor skills, a strong work ethic, good judgement and great communications skills coupled with an insatiable curiosity and willingness to try new approaches. He consistently showed a willingness to learn from the ‘data’ and from others. He understood the need to motivate team members and work with the myriad of owners, sponsors, sanctioning bodies, and media for a successful racing program.”
