Byron Sandborn has been a BMW Club member for over 41 years after attending their driving school at Seattle International Speedway. After that experience Byron was hooked on driving at speed. He autocrossed and then raced in ICSCC and SCCA events winning championships in 1987 and 1988. After being invited to drive a friend’s Shelby King Cobra in a vintage race, a friendship at the track with another vintage racer was formed when he helped with their Elva Mk 7. That friendship lead to a career move to Vintage Racing Motors. Byron’s been a key part of VRM for over 25 years as a mechanic, restorer, manager, and a driver. He’s raced over 175 different cars at over 35 different racetracks around the world. And yes, that's a Lazy Boy recliner that Byron built in to a drivable racer.
