Lynn Kehoe on Lessons Learned On and Off the Racetrack by Jennifer Eremeeva An impulse bid at a charity auction first led Lynn Kehoe to racecar driving, but after one day behind the wheel, she knew she had found a sport and a lifestyle she could embrace with passion. “It was an unbelievable experience,” she says of her first time behind the wheel of a BMW E 30, “it took me right out of my comfort zone and left me with an incredible feeling of having risen to a challenge ...

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Aug 18th, 2008 8:00am

For race car driver Kelly Williams, “nothing can replace the exhilaration of driving a race car.” Kelly first noticed cars when she was six-years-old and had a neighbor that worked on cars.

Just look at it. Doesn’t look like a Tiger? Well, maybe it’s a combination of the name “Tiguan” and the orange and black color scheme, but we still think it has cat-like qualities to it. I have a feeling this one doesn’t just sit around and purr. The new Tiguan concept is super fun to look at and extra nice inside. The orange accents in the tire that match the paint scheme is a riot and we ...
