Driver Bio

Let me introduce myself, my name is Bart Hockerman. I am a long time motorsports enthusiast / self proclaimed import car nut. I am young 41 year old father of 3 and husband of 19 years to a women that has supported and encouraged my addiction to cars and racing. I have been autocrossing for the past 16 years. I honestly really started only to begin in serious efforts to become competitive in 2005. Since then I have purpose built a few cars specifically for competition. In 2005 I purchased a 1986 Corolla GTS to build it for competition in STS and later STX in 2006 was found to seriously lack power Milwaukee National Tour 7th in STX 4. seconds off the leader. Late in 06 I bought a used 05 STI it was a slow build to being a competitive car in STU, in 2008 it won the Subaru Challenge event with Lance Keeley behind the wheel and I ended up in 2nd place. That car was then parted and traded on a 2008 STI with the eye for competition the next year in a simple local street tire class AWD that was sorted out by drivetrain layout. From there it has been a solid car for racing in the stock class prep. As 2013 rolled in nothing but the BRZ had been on my mind.

I was able to codrive Bill Cooks BRZ  early in 2012 and was sold on the platform completely. in May of 2013 I purchased my BRZ which became the MotoIQ.com "Project Autocross BRZ".
