Our Investment Mindset

WE INVEST IN DRIVERS AND NOT IN CARS!

[60%]

THE DRIVER [THE FOUNDER]

We invest in drivers, not cars. We will pick the driver regardless of what kind of car they drive. As long is it is a legal, moral and ethical business, – we are all in!

[25%]

THE CAR [THE BUSINESS]

It is simple. if you put a great driver in an average car, you will get above-average performance. A great driver will perform with any car, at any time, in any race.

[15%]

THE RACE [THE MARKET]

Finishing the Race. We can fix or suit up the car. We are not “Industry” focused we are “Driver” focused. Find the drivers, fix them a car, and get them in the race.
