“I can’t wait to get back,” Herr said. “We’ve been real busy all winter and now it’s time to do it!”
The winter has been busy for Chip. His appearance on “Sports Car Revolution” has made this 22-year-old a mini celebrity.
“After the show’s premier, I got dozens of phone calls saying congratulations. People I don’t even know are saying hello to me on the street!”
Chip spent most the off-season busy with the same job that most drivers have, looking for a ride.
“It’s tough for a driver these days. There are so many good ones out there that the team has a lot of choices. Sometimes your sure you’re going to get something and then, it disappears”.
Fortunately, this season saw the STaSIS Engineering team step up and make a real commitment to Chip.
“We wanted Chip for a while. He had a terrific rookie season and we felt like he was one of the guys to watch. It was great that we could make it happen,” team principle and CEO of STaSIS Engineering Paul Lambert said. “It’s going to be an exciting season!”
Chip as well as the team will be featured in several upcoming episodes of “Sports Car Revolution” and many are predicting a breakthrough season for both.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for me and the team and I plan on doing my very best.”
Chip Herr’s #18 STaSIS Engineering Audi A4, sponsored by the Drew Bledsoe Foundation and Satisfied Brakes, finishes testing next week. The STaSIS team then loads up the trailers and it’s on to Sebring, for round one of the SPEED World Challenge Touring Car Season.
