My clientele are elitists. They want the best, they deserve the best and they want to be kept in the know about the best of the best! I pride myself on locating and offering just that! Imagine a country club for people who live in the FAST lane! Well, the great thing is you don’t have to imagine…it’s here!

Just once, wouldn’t it be great to open it up on a beautiful stretch of immaculate pavement and see what it can do {“It” is your fast car}? No radar detectors needed, no looking for speed traps or in your rear view mirror. Imagine driving in a safe , controlled environment where the only limits are your driving skills, your nerve, and your car’s capabilities!
