Cloar, a native of Louisville, Kentucky has been racing since 1990 when he joined with good friends Rob Isringhausen and Jon Stoll at Isringhausen Imports for the original Porsche Driving Experience.
"The chief instructor at the time was Derek Bell, and he took me in a brand new Turbo and showed me where I was going wrong", commented Cloar. "It was a very valuable learning experience from one of my favorite drivers. I have been able to carry forward everything I learned that day which makes racing in a competitive series such a thrill."
Since then, Cloar has participated in numerous Driving Experience events, become instructor with the Porsche Club of America (PCA) and started racing the Cayman S in the Historic Sportscar Racing series (HSR).

"I will have an opportunity to visit some of my favorite tracks as well, like VIR and Mid-Ohio – tracks with elevation changes that are technical, but also get to race at some new tracks as well." He continued, "I can't wait for the season to get started and to have a shot at winning some races in the ITC program." the Intercontinental Trophy Cup season starts with an official test day ate Virginia International Raceway (VIR) on March 24th.
