James Yom a multi time SCCA Solo National Champion shares his insights

James Yom is this weeks guest. You can call him Mr. S2000 and a self proclaimed Honda Fan boy who transitioned from a Prelude to S2000s. (I want to drive a S2000 after this interview!)

He has 3 Solo National Championships and 3 Prosolo National Championships.
He thanks Henry Bjoin, Brian Karwan of Karcepts, Gernby E-tune, West End Alignment as well as Doug Rowse and Brian Peters (check out episode number one to hear from Brian).

He has lots of great insight from a personal favorite to drive faster cars fast in the fast sections not the transitions.
He talks about setting up his car for Re71Rs vs BFG Rival S. He is working on looking ahead and swears he doesn’t look ahead. That seems crazy to me that he has won so much without looking ahead. So if you don’t look ahead take note to what he says about his approach.
He is a pilot who can often make events around the country so if you can offer him a codrive he might just show up. – Make sure you offer him a codrive in FWD 😉
It was a fun chat. I hope you get a lot out of it, I know I did.
