With over six years of events under Targa Trophy’s belt, we felt it was time to let our fans in on some key players in the game. Taking a deeper look at who our sponsors, entries & staff are behind the madness. Tapping into strategy, things you may not know & words of wisdom. We are fired up to introduce “Targa Trophy Spotlight.” Stay tuned for more interviews posted monthly.

What do you drive on the regular: My daily driver is a moderately modified ’06 Subie, WRX STI, until out of nowhere a sofa ottoman came flying into the hood on the freeway one afternoon. So now im driving my bbi Autosport built Turbo S quite a bit.
Any modifications to the Turbo in the near future: Hahaha… This car is a constant modification. On the list in the near future… updating the tune, PDK tranny modification, differential upgrade, custom wide body, the list goes on! (FYI: BBI Autosports Project Grip is not Eric’s Car. Some could call them siblings with their common looks).
What was the first Targa Trophy event you attended & what was most memorable: I believe my first Targa event was the New Years Eve rally in San Diego. The entire event was just awesome!!!
What is your Targa Trophy strategy for winning events: Hahaha… I’m never concerned with winning Targa. All about hanging out with everyone and having a great time.

Name a personal fact not many people know about you: I breed mutant pythons.
Are you more of a cool calm & collected driver or would you consider yourself a petal to the metal fast & furious type: I would say I’m in between. I do like to drive fast but under the right circumstances.
What was your most recent ticket for: … Speeding, of course.
When your life isn’t consumed with car related stuff what do you enjoy doing: I like to spend my time with family and friends.
