Ep45 John Shoffner From GT3 Racing To Space
Today I'm delighted to welcome John Shoffner to the show. Husband of a previous guest, the amazing Janine Shoffner, John is another incredible person. A successful GT racer and entrepreneur, John Shoffner is also a pilot .. oh ... and he's about to go to the International Space Station. Yes that's right, John is going to become a real life astronaut. This is a fascinating discussion, I apologises now for making only fleeting references to motorsports!, although we do discuss how Johns motorsports experiences have helped him in his astronaut preparations. John has a great story and share lots behind the scenes insights I'm sure you'll find interesting. Maybe ditch the pad today, and simply grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy listening to what John has to say.
