This is like a dream come true. As a designer/art director/racing enthusiast, this is the epitome of greatness! Thomas Baekdal is an amazing thinker, creative and visionary.
When I say a dream come true I mean it in a way that this is where/what I want to be doing in my career today. Taking all the above interest and combining it into a product that I see is needed out there in the online world.
