2014 Season of #FD, I worked for Hankook Tires. This event, I was with Nexen. A season in between, it felt like I never left. I realized how much I enjoyed the lifestyle of being on the road and being around the automotive culture. Of course if I was traveling with Mercedes and F1 with Lewis Hamilton, it would be the most ideal situation, but I’m not. And I’m not a brat about it, I’m still grateful for the opportunity. 🙂
I am only able to join for the Long Beach (maybe Irwindale) event since it’s local. I can’t travel to the other cities due to my regular office hours. I did what I usually do at these events, take care of the VIP hospitality, the owners of the tire companies. Make sure they’re happy, escort them to the different activation tents, make sure they have a beer in their hands. This event was much more simpler due to me only being there on the day of the event. I arrived at 8:30am and hung around and said hello to old faces while I got accustomed to my new work environment. My day was pretty chill. Bear and Tyler joined later when it was Top 16. They had fun, I had a lot of fun and the rest of the night was even more fun. The boys went home first so I joined after I was off.
