In 2016 Derek was excited to get behind the wheel and start racing and he enjoyed numerous successes, however, now that Derek has his rookie year behind him, he'll be focusing on improving a number of different skills that will have him repeatedly up on the podium in 2017.
His main areas of focus will be on holding his line, perfecting his corners and off-line passing. Derek says, “I'm new to racing, but I've always found that I've had a need for speed” and we're looking forward to Derek fulfilling that need in his 2017 race season!
