I have blogged about Brianne Corn a couple of times here:
Here’s a snippet of a good, in-depth article that just came out today from her hometown newspaper, the Austin American-Statesman:
We all reach a time in our lives when we figure it out. We wander, and stumble, chasing this or that. Then something happens to make us snap to attention. Aha! That’s what I was meant to do.
It happened to Brianne Corn, 40, five years ago when she was driving up a narrow mountain road in Italy with a pack of racers on her bumper. She sped up. Pure exhilaration followed. Her purpose in life became clear: She had to become a race-car driver. It’s a pipe dream for most because of the expense, but Corn, then a broke college student who’d lived much of her life without purpose or direction, knew she would find a way. And she has.
“It’s an internal thing,” she says. “You tell yourself, ‘Dammit, go get the life you’ve always dreamed.’ “

This article was written by Ricardo Gandara – below is another article he published about autocrossing: A Safe Bet, If It’s Speed You Need
In addition to her focused pursuit of her dream, Brianne is still a wonderful person to talk to. She’s not too focused on the activities at hand to spend a few moments in pleasant conversation with you.
Racing Ready is proud (& a little jealous) of people like Brianne. She has made her racing choice in life & is pursuing it full speed ahead!
Keep us in the loop, Brianne…
