About Bob (Canyon Mini):
Bob Scheer’s love for motorsports started at the age of 14, when he joined the
pit crew for Pieper Racing in 1974. Since then, love has turned into obsession
as he strives to hone his skills at every opportunity.
His extensive experience over a broad range of road courses has given him the
ability to adapt to any racing situation quickly. This ability to quickly learn
the nuances of a new course and find the weaknesses and strengths of his
opponents gives him the edge he’s needed to dominate early in the race, and be
able to hold on to his advantage to the checkered flag.
Though most of his experience is with high-horsepower rear-wheel-drive vintage
American muscle with the Vintage Auto Racing Association (VARA), Bob has proven
his immense skill set and adaptability by capturing 2nd in qualifying, then
climbing the podium on his first full race weekend in the USTCC MINI Cooper S
at Thunderhill Raceway.
Speed, passion, and most importantly, the ability to adapt to the ever-changing
conditions of wheel-to-wheel racing are what has brought Bob Scheer to the level
of driving skill required for success amongst intense competition.
