“Don’t hit sh*t!”
For Wes, racing is a way to keep challenging himself and keep learning. And thousands of laps after he started racing in 1995, he says he’s still learning. He’s raced open-wheel and production cars in several classes, including GT at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. His brother Ken is also a ProFormance instructor. He’s driven professionally for several manufacturers, including Rolls Royce, McLaren, Acura, Lexus, Hyundai, and Toyota.
Having worked with every major racing school in the country, Wes notes that what makes ProFormance stand out is how the whole team really cares about everything: your safety, your vehicle, your goals, your level of learning, and your enjoyment. “We all want your days at the track with us to be the best days you’ll ever have at a track!”
