2004 SVRA Driver of the Year: Travis Engen


Travis Engen – Weston, CT

“I started racing with the VSCCA in 1995 driving a 1953 Lotus MK VI. (I have no earlier pro or amateur experience). The next year I progressed to a Lotus 18 formula junior, then to a March formula Ford a couple of years later.”

“I was selected as the SVRA’s ‘Most Improved Driver’ in 1999, that year having moved up to racing a 1970 Chevron B17b (formula b) and a 1962 Lotus 23b. I advanced to a 1976 RAZT RT 1 (formula atlantic) in 2000, a 2001 Lola T97/20 Indy Lights car in 2004 and a 2005 Audi R8 Le Mans prototype in 2009. Along the way I have won many championships, notable amount them several Monoposto Racing titles, the SVRA Endurance Race championship in 2004 to 2007 and 2009. I have also won FISR’s BOSS championship each year from 2005-2009. The racing achievement I regard most highly was my selection as the SVRA ‘Driver of the Year’ in 2004.”
