#7 Efrain Olivares: Motorsports Public Relations Manager, Vintage Racer

July 6, 2018

Efrain is currently responsible for Mazda Motorsports PR efforts within IMSA and the Battery Tender Global MX5 Cup series. Previously he worked for Ferrari Motorsports North America in a simillar role and he talks about the different approaches and goals of companies like Ferrari and Mazda with their racing efforts.

Efrain also races vintage cars and talks a little bit about that world, and debunks the perception that it's wildly expensive or inaccesable. He also talks about how to spot someone who's cheating and the penalties imposed when there's little to no post-race tech inspection.

To follow his personal snark on twitter, find him @RacerEfrain talking about racecars, bicycles and IPAs.
