Sorry for the slight delay. It is a busy time for MTR as we are in full season swing.

Great time with Rains Racing this past weekend at Road Atlanta racing our Volkswagen GTI. My teammate Andrew Rains did a great job to bring the car home in 2nd place in both races! We are also busy welcoming onboard a bunch of new sponsors and partners, so give the Rains Racing page a "like" to stay updated on our progress!

We will be having another testing weekend at Barber Motorsports Park next month to officially kick off our season. Please contact myself or the Rains Racing page for more information as to how you can join us!

It is never great to be at a track just watching and not driving, but overall a good weekend at Circuit of The Americas for the Pirelli World Challenge Championships! Exciting racing in all classes, especially the touring car class, and we look forward to joining in the fun come the month of May!

We have our work cut out for us against the rear wheel drive cars, but we look forward to showing everyone what our Volkswagen GTI and GLI can do! Rains Racing, Volkswagen USA, Volkswagen Motorsport! Stay tuned for more updates and announcements in the next few weeks!

The sun is out, but it is still extremely cold and windy at Circuit of The Americas! Other than working with all of the teams and their Portable-Shade USA LLC products, I am also keeping a watchful eye on the Rains Racing competition in the Touring Car class! #SpyShots

Unfortunately I will not be racing next week at Circuit of The Americas. We as a team are setting the foundations for a strong program in the future which takes time and for all the moving pieces to come together.

I am confident by the time we get to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in May, we will be more than prepared to battle against some tough competition in the Pirelli World Challenge Championships in our Volkswagen racing cars!

Rains Racing to debut in the Pirelli World Challenge Championships Touring Car Round 2 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in May!

After testing last weekend at Road Atlanta, the team has collectively decided to focus on building infrastructure and team processes in order to be prepared for a debut in May. With a more workable time frame Rains Racing hopes to have two cars on the grid in the TC Class come May 15-17, 2015 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park near Toronto, Ontario.

"As a young team, and a young business our focus has to be on the long-term growth and sustainability of our program. In order to build our business properly, and provide our partners the value and benefit they deserve, we have decided to focus our efforts on a debut at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. We don't have a huge budget, we're really just a group of passionate kids that are pursuing their dream in racing, so it's important to us to show up and represent our brand well. In the mean time we have planned to run an SCCA Majors race, and have planned test days to get our processes and personnel in order. With so many variables up in the air we want to make sure we make the right decisions for the future. Thank you to all our partners for supporting our decision, and pushing us to be successful!"

- Team Manager, Andrew Rains

Look for the team at Road Atlanta, March 20-22, 2015 competing in the US Majors Tour event. A public test event prior to the Team's planned debut in May will be announced shortly!

Here is a little flash back Friday while I work towards the 2015 season. This was taken at Killarney Race Track in Cape Town, South Africa in 2011. My first year of formula car racing at 14 years old! It is the lessons you learn along the way that make you who you are today!

Only 4 weeks left until Pirelli World Challenge Championships at Circuit of The!

What a weekend! While I was preparing for my racing season ahead, Daytona International Speedway was hosting the TUDOR Championship for the first race of the season, and easily of the toughest races of the year. Congratulations to all the winners and also all those who managed to finish, which is an achievement in itself!
Hopefully I will be there next year competing against some of the best in the business, and showing the likes of Chip Ganassi Racing Teams what I am capable of ;)

I have had a lot of people ask me why do racing drivers train as hard as they do in the gym, if all they have to do during a race is push the pedals, and turn a steering wheel.

Well, here is a great video to show you exactly how fit a racing driver has to be to compete at the highest level of the sport!

Unfortunately I won't be in Daytona this week for the #Rolex24 like I have been for the last few years.
However, it's great knowing the work I'm putting in now will leading to many possibilities in the years ahead!

Good luck to all drivers and crews, may the best team win in this very grueling and demanding endurance race. Stay safe everyone!

It doesn't look like much, but I can assure you, it sure is exciting!
I cannot officially confirm what I will be racing this year because there is still a lot of unknown variables, but I am working as hard as possible to make it happen. Take a look at the footwell and pedals for my 2015 ride. We need to make a few adjustments, but it is coming along!

Thank you for all the support! 2015 is going to be great year, filled with all new challenges!

It is always great to be an instructor at Atlanta Motorsports Park, but it is particularly good to be back working at a karting track. It brings back so many good memories for me, and I love sharing the lessons I have learnt with others!
