FIA DRIVER RATING
In his first year of racing, he won the Rookie of the Year Award and broke the lap record on a private racetrack in Nevada driving a Radical SR3. Since then, he’s competed in IMSA, FIA, ACO, SCCA, NASA and NARRA sanctioned races.
In 2013, Watzinger sealed his title as the US Champion in the Radical SR8 Prototype Series at Monticello, NY. With two back-to-back victories, he ensured a ride in the Radical Cup Euroseries in Spa Franchorchamps, Belgium for 2014.
As the outright champion for collecting the most points of any driver in either class, he also won a ride in the Le Mans prototype car. In 2014, Watzinger received his FIA pro license as a bronze rated driver and, a few years later, he finally drove in the Road to Le Mans race in a LMP3 prototype.
“This was definitely a highlight in my life.” Watzinger said.
Sometimes dreams do come true. I recently had the opportunity to drive Lewis Hamilton’s 2021 W12. Arguably one of the best F1 cars ever developed. It started with intensive simulator training at the factory. Simulator 6 as it is known. Very few people have even seen it, even fewer have been in it. We then moved to Circuit of the America’s in Austin (post the Canadian Grand Prix) where Lewis and Toto joined us. Lewis spent the day coaching us on how to drive an F1 car around the track. The total experience was mind blowing! Everything you ever heard about an F1 car is true x 10. Big thanks to Mercedes Toto, Lewis, and all the folks back at the factory. MB is a WORLD CLASS organization. THANK YOU!
