Johannes van Overbeek has done what many people have dreamed of, take a hobby and transform it to a profession. How did he make it happen? Continually improving himself, never giving up and doing whatever it takes. Now in the top class of IMSA sportscar competition he still applies these ideas on a daily basis.
Mecca of Speed: How did the DPi feel this morning running in mixed conditions, was your target for the session to develop a baseline for the car or focus on a particular area of development?
Johannes van Overbeek: No matter what the conditions, we are always trying to go as fast as we can. You have to find the limits because until you get to the limit you don’t know what is not right with the car that you need to address.
The car is surprisingly very comfortable to drive at speed on the track. The set-up was nice; the Continental rain tires worked well, just what we are looking for in our first session. more
