Racer Mike Skeen became a friend of The Garage a couple of years ago, largely because he’s one hell of a personal marketer who uses new media better than most other racers. Sure, the big teams have hired staff loading content into Facebook and launching the occasional tweet, but Skeen does it all himself and does a great job.
Since Mike began sending us content, we’ve ridden shotgun with him as he has raced Trans Am and even a few lapping days. Today’s video is by far the most awesome flick he has sent our way!
This 25 minute video is condensed from Sunday’s full race in the Pirelli World Challenge Championship race in St Petersburg, where Skeen battled hard to a 3rd place finish in the Cragar Wheels/CRP Racing Corvette. Skeen’s pace during this race is astounding, and had his luck been better during the race he might have even taken the top spot. Do not be tempted to turn the video off partway through, as the most exciting bits are in the last 10 minutes!
Turn the speakers up really loud, select full screen on the highest resolution your monitor will handle and sit back and enjoy the race!
