Who is Brian Makse and why is he here?

Although I've been writing and producing video content about cars for a decade, I still hear that same question, "Who is Brian Makse and why is he here?" Lately, that query has much to do with my splitter guard obsession, but I digress.

 

I was asked to introduce myself to you, dear readers, by way of a biographical account. My path isn’t what anyone would consider normal and writing about oneself is never easy, yet here I am.

Your "makeshift" racing helmet sure looks like a hockey helmet covered in tinfoil.  I'd expect nothing less.

Strange Brew, perhaps?

That's perhaps one reason. The other reason may follow soon, but it's more to do with what I do on YouTube.

Ummm, Elsinore... as in short course off-road truck venue, BMX and MX tracks, or vintage dirt bikes of a certain color..?

shouldn't that headline photo be of james street at the top of the hamilton escarpment?

I don't have any pix from there, but perhaps a shot from outside turn ten at Mosport would be more suitable.

Although I am from Southern California, I had the privilege of racing at Westport in British Columbia in 1983 and several time in this century at Mission Raceway in my Bill Thomas Cheetah. It was always a pleasure to compete north of the border.

I visit Southern California often and was recently there. That's a long haul up to BC!
