062 – Elivan Goulart: SCDA & His Secrets to Speed

Elivan Goulart joins me to talk about the Sports Car Driving Association (SCDA), and then what makes him so fast, and why he wins so many races. We talk about self-coaching, whether you need to crash to learn the limits, how it’s important to take time before driving to mentally prepare, how to read other drivers, and the strategy behind racecraft.

Elivan started in Karts at the age of 12, then moved into cars in Formula 500 (2001 and 2002 SCCA National Runoff Champion), then moved up to the new Formula SCCA in the Cooper Tires Championship and won Championship in 2004. In 2011 he won the SCCA National Championship in Spec Miata, and was the SCCA Presidents Cup winner that year.  In 2013 Elivan won the SCCA STU National Championship, and has also won the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge TCA Championship. In fact, Elivan has won over 45% of all career races entered since the beginning.

  1. We actually know Elivan from karting where he he has provided input and data review for my son Ben at Oakland Valley Race Park with Hannen Motorsports. We also have occasion to run into him and his family at racing events at Lime Rock Park. Great person and great driver. We learn a lot from him just by watching him, as well as listening closely to his input. Thanks for having him on your podcast
