GHIT 0254: New High Performance Driver Kim Coffey
A Command Performance for the Everyone Racers Podcast
Kim Coffey has been a car girl from a very young age and has recently discovered her passion for driving her car at the limit. It all started with a Supra Sunday with NASA and once the hook was set, she was off. She loves and drives her 2020 Toyota Supra for HPDE events, autocrosses and has even started Sim racing. If that wasn’t enough, she often takes her lunch at a local go kart track. We thought we would go over where she is this early in her driving journey and we are looking forward to seeing where she goes and what she decides to pursue in her high performance driving future.
There were some storm induced connection issues during the middle few minutes but most were easily editable and it resolved pretty quickly.
