I am currently working at Novak Electronics as a Customer Service Rep. and Technical Support.Believe it or not I am really enjoying it!
I still try to race as much as possible...Mainly local stuff....Electric off road is so fun!I have been using a Hot Bodies D8 and did I mention how fun it is...lol
I am still racing Nitro On road for Mugen...Thanks to Mike and Robbie I still can go out and have fun at the track.
I have been through some tough times this past year (mainly my fault)..The whole thing that happened with my last sponsor really was a set back but if it wasnt for some of the "stupid" things I have done throughout my career I would not have been in that position.
I know I have learned from the things I have done and I hope that people notice that I have.
BTW...Stefan...thanks for asking!
I hope to see everyone at tracks around the world again but its going to take some time!
As of right now I am trying to just enjoy the life I have right now.
BTW...After 22 years in this industry I forgot how much fun this Hobby/Sport of ours is! I dont ever want to forget again!!!!
I have worked in Customer care for about 11 years now, in various places, now for a white goods service centre.
I can say I enjoy it most of the time, but occasionally there is a customer who you cannot deal with.
For you to work for Novak in this area of work must be very rewarding when you've dealt with customers issues and the thought of them getting back on the track, trouble free
Back in my days of using Novak equipment i've had some very quick answers about technical issues, from Charlie so i'm sure you are very much capable of doing the same, so all the best in your venture with Novak, i'm glad it turned out to make a better situation than with your sponsors
You certainly have the right attitude, learn from something where it went wrong, then move on from it
