Nitro Circus’ “Street Bike Tommy” teams up with Professional Driving Instructor

“Street Bike Tommy” and Tracey Gardiner pair up for Pennsylvania’s STPR Rally

 

Providence, Rhode Island. 5/26/2016. —:         ‘RE-DEFINING THE “SILLY SEAT”

The 2016 Rally America season has been full of highlights, memories and firsts to date. So as they participate in the fifth round of the Rally America National Championship, Tracey Gardiner (TagRallySport) is happy to announce a new first for her as she will be teaming up with Nitro Circus’ “Street Bike Tommy” for his debut to the rally world.

STPR® 2016 marks the 40th running of this event. It is the oldest continuously-running motor sports event in Pennsylvania. Factory-sponsored teams, along with local favorite grassroots teams, will gather at the Tioga fairgrounds in Wellsboro PA on June 3rd and 4th to take on the course and stage miles featuring some of the most challenging roads in the world.

Tommy Passemante is an actor, known to millions of fans worldwide for Nitro Circus: The Movie (2012), Jackass 3D (2010) and the hit TV shows “Nitro Circus: Crazy Train” (2015 to present) and “Nitro Circus” (2009 - 2014). This former hanger of drywall, dubbed “Street Bike Tommy” by action sports legend Travis Pastrana and the rest of the Nitro Circus crew, is the fun loving “class clown” of Nitro Circus. As an introduction to the sport of rally, Tommy will drive in the national class, piloting a “B Spec” Honda Fit in the Rally America series with Tracey Gardiner calling out the notes and trying to keep them on the road to a winning finish.  

Tommy is currently wrapping up a massive Australian tour with the Nitro Circus team but will return to the states this coming week. “It’s quite ironic that this will be my first time back at STPR after a heavy off (?) while competing in May of 2014, and I will be sitting next to the “Street Bike Tommy,” said Tracey Gardiner. “Having recently spent some time at the Craig Drew co-driver school as well as getting some training time with David Higgins, I think I can give Tommy some pointers. But after reading all about his exploits with Nitro Circus I’m not sure which one of us will actually be sitting in ‘The silly seat.’” 

Tracey Gardiner is a mom, successful rally driver and a certified driving instructor in both Rhode Island and Colorado. In addition to being a driving tester in Colorado, she also teaches defensive driving and works with individuals and organizations on their attitude, approach and mental performance when it comes to operating a vehicle, both on public roads or behind the wheel of a rally car on a closed road.
