Racing - Robert Calzia

"I'm a software support engineer during the week and have been in the computer industry for over 10 years. Working with software problems for a living requires some outlets for stress relief. I started racing in 2004 and I'm having a blast doing it. In addition to racing with Corvette Connection, I'm also doing some autocross racing. Outside of auto racing, I'm into endurance sports. I do a lot of running year round (including two marathons a year), mountain biking in the summer, and snow boarding in the winter.

Because I'm not married, I have lots of free time on my hands so I also play guitar and try to go scuba diving once or twice a year. I'm always game for a challenge and racing is certainly that."

Robert has been a member of the Corvette Connection racing team for years.
