Racer Name 



Aaron Banfield

Owner, Director of Operations

Aaron spent time running a Camaro in circles – (yes, on a race track) when he was in Florida.   His current car is equipped with 4 point harnesses – but only on the child seats for his young family. A car to race / play with is in the future for him.

 Aaron is a referee for the US Wheelchair Rugby Association and an accomplished practical joker

Joe O’Gorman

Owner, Director of Development

Joe runs a ’99 Mazda Miata in local SCCA Solo events and participates in track days at regional race tracks. He specializes in finding a way to get his car backwards on a regular basis.

 Joe seems to know everyone. He is often seen talking to his new best friend.



David Santel

Marketing Manager

David competes locally and nationally in his ’02 Mini Cooper at SCCA Solo events. He is also team captain for “Eau Rude Racing”, a 24-Hours of Lemons team racing a ’92 Sentra SE-R. Dave instructs for both the SCCA and 10/10ths Motorsports, and has been known to get in the occasional go-kart race outside of Full Throttle. He’ll tell you he “almost” won the Red Bull driver challenge, but hay bales got in the way.

 Yes, he actually is old enough to vote. And drink! No, seriously, he is.

He has finished in the top 10 since his first national event when he was 16. Tom is also part of the “Eau Rude” racing team and is focused on getting his competitive license to road race with the SCCA.   Tom designed a good portion of the Full Throttle track – and is the king of Forza.
