We're Doomed




Where do we start with Nathan Thompson’s careers, as a successful race mechanic or race winning car driver? Having left family and Texas behind, Nathan went to the Jim Russell Mechanics Training Program where he acquired the education that he needed to start a career in the racing industry. While at Jim Russell, he won the Mechanics Championship while not even participating in all the events, and let the overachieving begin. Eventually he made it back to Texas and connected with Metcalf Racing, where he got to play with the SCCA and a few Skip Barber Races. While he was working for Metcalf Racing, we started using him here at Regogo Racing and noticed that he was a sharp mechanic. This all changed at the SVRA New Jersey Motorsports Event, where he brought a Van Diemen to race; throwing caution to the wind and racing in the rain, he got a comfortable victory while on slicks. He has raced in a few Enduros with Doc Bundy and the two make a pretty good team that have won a couple times, and he is now racing the Regogo Racing Lotus Elite. Nathan is in charge of keeping the Lotus 79/1 running and making sure it is safe for Doc Bundy to drive.


Nathan and Laura have had their hands full as t welcomed Milo to the family.  Nathan has been hard at work getting another Lotus 23 built up for Regogo Racing, since Doc Bundy can only drive one at a time, this leads us to believe Nathan might be in line for a step up from the Lotus Elite.  Only time will tell..........


Nathan and Doc have just won the 2014 Masters HGP event at Road America, and they are already discussing what needs to be done to the car for Watkins Glen.

It's not everyday you get to prepare a car for the 1978 Formula One World Champion to drive.  Here we have Nathan Thompson strapping in Mario Andretti  in for a couple  of test laps before the grand opening ceremonies for Circuit of the Americas.


Nathan Thompson being cheered on by the entire family the other weekend, as he was racing the new Lotus 23c.  Laura said the boys Milo, Jones, and Keaton were enjoying keeping track of Dad.
