TONY JIMENEZ #64

Tony Jimenez Prunedale, CA 93907 tajlab@sbcglobal.net 831 750 7102 My name is Tony Jimenez, and I have been involved in motor sports for over 50 years as a competitor, spectator, instructor, car and motorcycle builder, and racing equipment supplier. I’m now semiretired from road racing and looking to help out upcoming driving students and motorsport enthusiasts.

I started out driving karts as a kid and moved up to running a 1962 Austin-Healy 3000 in autocross and Alfa GTV in SS1. In 1969, I started racing Formula Fords with the SCCA. I then road raced motorcycles for 10 years with the AMA, FUSA and the AFM. I owned and operated Frey Race Supply from 1980 to 1985. From 1985 to 1990, I was the service manager for Santa Cruz Jaguar, and from 1990 to 1994, I was the director of parts and service for Monterey Jaguar/Ferrari.

I actively raced a plethora of cars and motorcycles on racetracks from coast to coast up until 2011, when I retired. Over the past 50 years, I have built many race cars and motorcycles, and I have achieved many wins, track records and championships. My cars, motorcycles, and students currently hold race records at Laguna Seca, have won at Dayton, and have won at nearly all of the west coast race tracks.

I have previously instructed for the Bob Bondurant School, SCCA, British Racing School, DP Racing School, AMA, AFM, and Currently I’m coaching for David Ray at Hooked on Driving. As well as sports cars, I have also had the privilege of firsthand participation and teaching motorcycle racing.

In 2006 I built, developed, and coached the driver of a Swift DB3 formula Ford and set the racing track record at Laguna Seca Raceway (1:31,133). I have recently (2017-2019) completed my MSF level I and II coaching certification’s I currently hold a full competition license in SCCA, CSRG, HMSA and NASA Offering: Private driver coaching, Car set-up and engineering support
