I'm still in awe.....I just don't understand how he does turn 12 like he does LOL that guy in INSANE!
He told me he envisions the concrete walls as fluffy cream filled marshmellows. Works every time.
For those of you that don't know Mike Skeen, he is a very rare breed of professional driver, and I put him up there with the very best in the country. Super humble, articulate, soft spoken, but also carries a big stick. He's also the best pro-level coach I've ever worked with, and always willing to share his techniques with anyone that asks. He has an uncanny ability to hop into a slow car, a fast car, or anything in between and instantly drive the doors off the car with zero mistakes or drama. He is also pretty good at sliding completly sideways through T12 at 100+mph while carrying on a normal converstaion with his passenger.
Given this was our first time running the Hoosiers on this particular car, on Saturday, I did a few laps in the Catesby/Forged GT-R to fine tune suspension and tire pressures for Mike. Sunday morning, I turned the car over to Mike for a couple of orientation laps in traffic expecting him to return with lots of suggestions or changes he wanted us to make. Instead, he simply said, the car is perfect and don't change a thing. That's when I knew we had a really special lap in store for the afternoon, and special it was.
We couldn't have done this without my friend and long time partner in crime, Catesby Jones, along with Mike Skeen, and the staff of Chin Motorsports. See you all next year.
