Highcroft Racing Fly’n-MY NAME IS KHAN

There are always some girls that look like Ke$ha with glitter around the eye in and around the track as cars go fly’n by. Mobile 11 hours at Sebring was no exception. There was pleanty of fresh oxygen, smell of fuel, and bubble gum in the air. Highcroft racing is an exciting team, I like them, they have great energy, drivers, in Simon Pagenaud, David Brabham, and Marino Franchitti, not to mention that my patron Stefan Johansson also drove for them.

The team unveiled its new Honda Performance Development ARX-01e LMP1 machine on March 10, 2011 and here they where a few weeks after racing it, wow! is all I have to say, because that speaks volumes for the team. I just love team work, because that is what auto racing is, all the elements have to come together. The Ferrari’s, the Jaguars, Audi’s and Porsche’s   flicked by. Then came the rush, towards the end when the Highcroft team produced a scintillating performance charging to finish second. Strap in as MY NAME IS KHAN takes you for a hurling spin as if helium and hydrogen in space with a sense of adventure and discovery, towards 24 hours at Le Mans.

The time came for the last race it was in Queensland, gold coast, Australia and what a race it was. Anything that can happen in a race, did. There was hail, crash’s, no sound on the headphones from the pits, fuel pumps not working, car’s almost running on empty. It was the day Ryan finished first, and Jimmy second. The Aussie’s love there auto racing and those with me in the pit’s got a first hand feel of what it’s like to be in the middle of it all. Mynameiskhan is going to take you and put you right in the middle of racing this year, so buckle up and get ready for the ride, Hollywood style and the adventure of discovery.

Hollywood!


Welcome to MY NAME IS KHAN.  I was walking down 52nd Street towards Broadway for a meeting. I had my cigar, sporting the latest shades, just as I raised my arm to light the cigar a hand coming from nowhere caught it, and the man yelled out in a very New York fashion”Mr.Hollywooood”. From that day in New York the name stuck and I was  simply “Hollywood”. It was one of those New York moments. I never met Micheal Jackson, but I did dine with Quincy Jones and his son who was visiting from Sweden at the time in New York. Mr. Q produced Micheal Jackson’s greatest album of all time “Thriller”. I asked Quincy Jones what it was like working with Micheal Jackson? I was told that Micheal was a perfectionist and it took forever to get the album done.  On the other hand  Frank Sinatra would walk into the recording studio, hit it and we where done. I am Timothy Hollywood Khan and here I share with you this Micheal Jackson’s song Hollywood, shot on the streets I know so well, featuring the Hollywood sign under whose gaze on a pitch in a park below I played cricket. The adventure of discovery is here at MY NAME IS KHAN.
