Who is Derrick Ambrose?
I am a business owner who has been in running CorkSport a Mazda performance company since 1998 here in the Portland area. I have participated in almost everything the Oregon region offers from rally cross, autocross, and road racing through the years. I figured it was time to give back to the local club who has afforded me the opportunity to race. The only thing missing is TSD which I hope to resolve at some point. If you are like me and recognize people by the cars they race then my past racecars have included a Silver Mazda 2 B-Spec, a White Mazda 3 sedan, and most recently a red Spec Miata.
My goal for this year it to get increase attendance in the demographic range of 18-26 auto enthusiasts which are noticeably missing from road racing events. TNIA has helped this but I feel we are still lacking a bit after seeing how large the attendance is in the TNIA in other regions and I haven’t seen much cross over in the paddock.
