Malcolm Strachan is currently a man of many trades.
Beyond pursuing a career as a professional racing driver,
he is working as an EIT in Toronto,
Ontario, Canada as well as working part time as a racing
coach/instructor and as a driving specialist. After
graduating from Queen's University in Mechanical
Engineering, Malcolm moved to Toronto to be closer to
both the centers of both motorsport and engineering in
Malcolm started in karting at the age of 10, and progressed
through the ranks until he was 15. At 16, he stepped into
GT racing, competing in a regional-GT3 Toyota MR2. From there,
he leap-frogged from GT3, to GT2 in a Mazda RX7 Turbo, and then
into the GT1 Corvette C5 he campaigned from 2002 to 2007.
During the span of 2001 to 2007, Malcolm won four championships,
was twice runner-up in points and claimed many victories in
both Ontario and Quebec. Prominent race successes include
winning the 2006 Fall Classic at Mont Tremblant in the
GT1 class, finishing third in 2004 American GT race at
Mosport in a 1979 Trans-Am Corvette against more powerful,
modern Trans-Am cars, a top-15 finish in the highly-competitive
GS class in the Koni Challenge Series, along with other great
finishes usually against more expensive and more powerful machinery.
Malcolm ran strong in Montreal in 2009 in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series,
with Jim Bray Autosport in the RUSH-HD Dodge Avenger.
Malcolm has many goals set out for the future. Short term
goals include running the full Nascar Canadian Tire Series
schedule and fighting for top finishes. Long term goals
include racing in a top-tier racing series such as ALMS,
NASCAR or any other top form of motorsport. Malcolm also
hopes to compete in more endurance races, and work toward
competing in world-renowned 24-hour events such Le Mans,
Daytona and Nurburgring.
