ABOUT

BRIAN LOCK


Brian Lock was born in Fremont, CA on August 15, 1982. At seven his parents moved him and his three brothers to Scotts Valley, California, a town he still calls home. With two older brothers and one younger, competition was a common theme in the Lock household. By the time he was six he drove into water skiing and in a few short years he was competing at the regional level, which lead shortly after that to National competitions. While in high school he would go from water skiing tournaments to his newfound passion of hockey, sometimes on the same weekend. When he started at San Jose State University he continued his love for hockey by joining San Jose Spartans while carrying a full school load. The adrenaline and competitiveness in racing is what Brian was raised on, and it is what he thrives on.


Brian's interest in racing started with his graduation present from high school, a 1991 Acura Integra. This car was originally intended to be his commuting vehicle for his drive to college every day but it did not stay that way for long. Brian, with the help of his father Steve, stripped the car in their garage and turned it into his first racecar. Brian took that car and went undefeated in Norcal Honda Challenge, which lead him to the life changing decision to make racing into a career.


After a successful test in a Formula Renault 1600, it was clear that Brian did not have the funding to go to the open wheel route. His family gathered behind him and GOTO:Racing made it's transition into professional racing. GOTO:Racing purchased a 2002 Subaru WRX and entered the US Touring Car Championship. Brian Lock and the team went on to capture rookie of the year, multiple wins, and runner up USTCC in 2005.


Their success sparked the attention of Subaru of America. With the help of SOA, Brian Lock and GOTO built from scratch a 2005 Legacy GT to race in the Grand Am Koni Challenge. Brian went on to surprise and shock the Koni Challenge field by posting multiple fastest racing laps, and taking a top five and a top ten finish in his first five races.


Brian's accomplishments in USTCC and Grand Am earned him quite a reputation in the Subaru community, and a ride in a local shop's Time Attack car. He continued to impress by winning multiple time attack events in a car he helped build and develop and became one of the most popular Subaru racecars in the country.


Always being the underdog and under funded, Brian had to teach himself how to fabricate, design aerodynamic pieces, and be his own PR manager throughout his career. Using the skills he acquired along his long and difficult journey, he now operates his own business building racecars and running arrive and drive programs for GOTO:Racing. Being self-employed has kept his schedule flexible to continue to work towards his goal of making a lasting career as a professional racecar driver.


Brian Lock and GOTO:Racing are now fielding the first fully race prepped Nissan GT-R in the country.
