Lindsay Fox began racing
go-karts when she turned 18, but she has been
dreaming about racing cars her entire life, well,
most of it anyway.
When Lindsay was seven she
attended the 24 Hours of Daytona at Daytona
International Speedway and has been hooked every
since. A fan of the Group 44 Jaguars, Lindsay
followed the IMSA racing carefully cheering on Bob
Tullius and the gang (hence the green stripes on
her helmet). In 1989 Lindsays father,
Wilshire, took her to the 12 Hours of Sebring and
from there its been downhill.
When she was nine Lindsay
started working in Timing and Scoring for IMSA. At
the age of 13 she and her father joined the SCCA
and Lindsay worked in Timing and Scoring for
several events each year.
Lindsay and her father
made a deal early on that if Lindsay stayed in
school and graduated from college that her dad
would help her race. In August 1995 Lindsay set off
to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University but met
Wilshire in Jacksonville on a regular basis to race
the go-kart at 103rd Street Sports
Lindsays first kart
was a Bug chassis with a 5hp Briggs and Stratton
motor. It wasnt fast, but Lindsay was having
a ball. In 1997 Wilshire helped Lindsay buy a
Margay chassis with a Yamaha motor on it. That is
when Lindsay moved up to the Yamaha Light class and
started doing well.
By 1999 Lindsay was a
fixture in Jacksonville and started racing
Divisional and National WKA races. Her travels took
her from Naples, Florida to Norway, Illinois with
stops at Charlotte, North Carolina and St.
Petersburg, Florida along the way.
In October 2000 Lindsay
captured the North Florida Karting Club Yamaha
Light Championship in a close battle. In December
of 2000 Lindsay raced in her last National kart
race and then sold her Margay Brava/Yamaha.
Lindsays car racing
career started in January 2000 when she attended
the Skip Barber three-day racing school. She was
lucky enough to be one of only seven students and
she got a lot of track time. She learned the
principles of driving a racecar while at Skip
Barber and recommends the course to anyone serious
about racing cars. Lindsay earned her SCCA regional
license that weekend but would have to wait until
July 2001 to get to use it.
In July 2001 Lindsay
attended the SCCA driving school at Sebring
International Raceways club course. This was
Lindsays first taste of a Spec Racer Ford and
her first chance at competition. At the end of the
two day school Lindsays group participated in
a practice race. At the end of the race Lindsay
took top honors. (for the full story see
Lindsays Race Report).
Since that day Lindsay has
raced in several SCCA events. She has not only
raced in the Spec Racer Ford class, but also in a
Spec Miata with Christine Gurley and in a Dave
Brown Motorsports AS Mustang.
In 2003 Lindsay evaluated
her career in racing and decided to go back to her
roots, go-kart racing. In October 2003 a new CKI
chassis was purchased with the intent to race in
Piston Port (PP) Can. Lindsay first raced the CKI
at Daytona and brought home two top ten
A little more than a year
after buying the new kart Lindsay scored her first
national victory in PP Can Lite at Road Atlanta.
Three months later she repeated her national
success by finishing first in PP Can Lite at
Roebling Road Raceway. Because of her national
success Lindsay decided to pursue six national
events with hopes of finishing in the top five
year-end points. Another national victory came at
Lindsay's first visit to Mid-Ohio Sports Car
In 2006 Lindsay plans to
continue racing in the WKA Natioanl Road Racing
