An avid car enthusiast who’s passion started with tinkering in the garage and helping his father with oil changes grew into a hobby while at Clarkson University where he founded the Clarkson Sports Car Club with three roommates. Hollen began working on other’s cars as the Club’s President and soon acquired a 2005 Subaru Legacy GT which he spent years modifying and tinkering with up to a staggering 550 all-wheel horsepower. In the spring of 2010 while crewing for the Gotti Racing Subaru Rally Team (http://gottiracing.com) of Matt Gottlieb (Hollen’s college roommate) and Austin Gager Hollen realized his passion extended beyond assisting with rallies and crewing for other teams – there was a passion to be in the driver’s seat. Knowing of an older Audi that had been laying in rest in a garage in northern Vermont he made a call that night and agreed to buy the 1989 Audi 90 that he currently races.
