Let’s start with my driving partner Michel Crepault.
A 30-year veteran of the auto journalism world, Michel founded and publishes L’Annuel de L’Automobile (Annual Auto Guide), a 14-year old, 700+ page book that details every vehicle available for sale the upcoming model year. Click that link to buy it.
We’re fast becoming a very solid team, and I’m lucky because right now, he’s doing our mapping homework alone, so I can post this. Merci Michel xo
Our team’s entry into the fastest category is Nissan’s Juke, Nismo edition.
Driving the Juke is Jim Kenzie.
You know Jim, I’ve introduced you before because he’s awesome. And good at Targa too, having competed in all 13 of them, and winning 3 times, phft.
Part of that winning us because of his navigator, Brian Bourbonniere.
That’s his racing suit that he wears in the passenger seat, and is so good at navigating he once completed a rally without making a single mark on the paper, handing it back to the rally master as it was given to him. That is ridicuoulsy difficult.
No matter how many questions I pester him with, only patience in return. And I have a _lot_ of questions.
And this is Cathy Cole, the glue of the team. She herds us around and takes care of logistics, and when you say to her, “Cathy, can you please…” she’s already thought of it, and pulls it out of her purse.
Helping her adhere my sticker to her binder is Mario, our tech, who I’ll introduce you to in another post, along with Danny, Michael, Jenn and Didier.
We’re a solid team!
Because there’s a lot of laughing, and everyone gets along really well, which considering there’s so many of us, how rare is that. Exactly. #TeamNissanTarga
