Quick Q&A: Tim Paul:

If you weren’t racing, what would you be doing?  Writing a novel.

What motivates you? Winning. Racing is the most challenging thing I have ever done, and the job with driving is never done. Even on a good day you could have done better.

What is the best racing moment so far in your career? For me, the bulk of thetravel. I’ve gotten to see and race at places I dreamed about as a kid.

One cool thing most people don’t know about you is… I read. A lot. I also write a lot of short stories in my spare time. I have a degree in creative writing, and I try to keep those skills as fresh as possible. It’s a great outlet and ending up with afinished piece of work is so rewarding.
